About the Property
Beautifully Furnished 2 Bedroom Cottage with Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, Best Location!
Coastal Cottage in the heart of downtown Cedar Key! This historic home has graced 1st Street for 90 years. A classic Cracker home, there are two immaculate, beautifully decorated bedrooms (one queen, one full) and one full bath. HGTV's Coastal Collection Paint highlights the vaulted ceiling, wainscoting and original doors. All brand new furniture, TVs, and mattresses/linens. The breezy wraparound front porch with locally made adirondack chairs makes an ideal spot for people watching, reading, sipping tea, or just relaxing.
The Ida Belle Cottage was once home to Mrs. Ida Belle Davis, who raised her family here. Though Mrs. Ida Belle is no longer with us, her family continues to live and work in Cedar Key. When you enter the house, don't forget to look on the wall just to your left, a little tribute to the cottage's namesake is there for your enjoyment. A true Southern woman, she would want you to stay and be comfortable. Most of all, she would want you to see Cedar Key the way she did--from the little cottage on 1st Street.

About the owner: Our family has grown up on the water in this area. Starting off fishing and crabbing, our lives on the water have brought us to Cedar Key for the last 20+ years. Jon and Shawn own and operate Southern Cross Sea Farms, a wholesale/retail clam business here in town. Caryn owns and operates Pelican Realty just around the corner. Jenny is a music teacher. We love Cedar Key and always want to do what we can to protect it.
Why the Owner Chose Cedar Key, FL, USA:
Though we already live and work on the island, we felt a push to preserve a classic Cracker house that had so much history behind it. In a time where everything new is often the most desired, we wanted to share a bit of the glorious old with newcomers to Cedar Key. The island's unique charm comes from an eclectic mix of old and new. In offering this home away from home, we hope you will find yourself as enchanted as we are with a lovely old cottage. If only walls could talk...The Ida Belle Cottage would have some incredible stories to tell. Write your own story here on the corner, if you wish.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Walking distance to everything, easy to find, management lives on the island.
