About Lori Schleede

Current owners are allowing a local property manager to handle rental arrangements for clients.

Lori Schleede purchased this house in 2016

Why Lori Schleede chose Cedar Key

Location, location, location. Palmetto Drive is a friendly street with snowbirds and other vacation rentals. The Gulf front view offers a relaxing location. With the canal in the back, guests can launch their kayaks and explore the canal and gulf waters at high tide.

What makes this house unique

The access to pristine, unspoiled waterways attracted us to this area. Less than a mile from downtown, it is an easy walk, bike or golf cart ride.

April at The Mermaid House, Cedar Key, FL

  • 5 of 5

Our group of ladies thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend at the Mermaid House. The neighbors were friendly, helped us find our two golf carts for the weekend, and we went all over Cedar Key to eat, shop, take a sunset cruise, and just explore. It was an awesome weekend, perfect weather, and we are looking forward to returning. Thank you so much!

Very clean and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We thought the property was clean and ready to go when we arrived early so we were able to get right in. Although we thought it was good we felt it would be great with some minor upgrades, I.E. new appliances, updated tv and upgrade to the dish package, internet, etc. new windows would be great as we had a hard time to raise and lower them. Again minor things that would take the stay from a 3 1/2 star to an easy 5 with the location.

Word about the realtor, Lori was great and easy to work with. Would not hesitate if she was assigned to a property we rent in the future.

Cedar Key is located on Florida's Nature Coast. It is surrounded by tens of thousands of acres of prestine wilderness. Truly a nature lovers dream. State Parks and Archeoligical sites and a quaint downtown reminisent of old Florida exist at the end of SR 24. A well stocked market, award winning restaurants and bars are all within walking distance, or a short ride by golf cart (available for rent in town). Experienced charter captains offer excellent fishing along with airboat and island tours are readily available.

The Mermaid House is a comfortable, beautifully decorated Gulf Front home with water access and a dock on the back canal. The open floor plan offers the opportunity to prepare meals while socializing with guests and enjoying the view of the Gulf. A cozy, wood burning fireplace for the cool winter evenings chases the chills away after a day of back country fishing. There is an outside shower along with guest quarters and a full bath (available for an additional charge). The summer season offers scalloping in the local waters. This 2 bedroom, two bath home is comforatble for snowbirds who may have guests, or anyone looking for a getaway.
