Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Cedar Key
Papa Jim's Place is a lovely 1930's Cedar Key Cracker House, updated with all the amenities a couple or family could want for a relaxing visit.
Since this is our family's 2nd home, we keep it ready to use, with everything from dishes and cookware to DVD's for the evenings, and board games for the kids.
Built in the mid-1930's on a double lot, Papa Jim's Place has plenty of space for the whole family to spread out. A large semi-fenced back yard gives the kids a place to play, or a great sunning location. Just yards away are the public park, with a playground for your children, and the public beach just steps past that.
Almost all of Cedar Key is within walking distance of the house; being not even a block off main street, you're just moments from award-winning food (think Tony's World Champion clam chowder), all the art shops, curio stores, and second-hand you can stand! On Dock street you'll find daytime fun and more shops, and in the evenings, plenty of nightlife and live music.
Within walking distance is golf cart rental, boat rental and tours, and a marina if you bring your own boat.
For hunters and fishing fans, check with us ahead of time for recommendations if you need, for local captains and hunting guides we enjoy spending time with.
With central heat and A/C, you'll be comfortable regardless of the outside temperature. We enjoy a nice morning breakfast with family in the Florida room, watching the world wake up out the large windows.
We welcome you to our home, and ask that you make yourself comfortable and treat it as your own during your stay. If you have any questions or comments, please make sure to call or email us.

Local to the region, our family lives and plays in the area. Our primary home is just a quick drive from Papa Jim's, but secluded in the woods. We use Papa Jim's ourselves all the time, to get some fun time on the water.
Cedar Key is still lie the community of old, where everyone knows our kids, you better drive under the speed limit, and you can still walk anywhere worth going!
Taggert purchased this cottage in 2008
Why Taggert chose Cedar Key
This home was in our family, and we purchased it when we had the opportunity. With a wealth of local festivals and eateries, we're never at a loss for something to do when we hang out in Cedar Key. And neither will you be. From the sedate to the active, and all in-between, there something for everyone in the family.
What makes this cottage unique
Though there are condo's on Cedar Key, they are not our style. We prefer the quiet, informal, and homey nature of our house. Built in the 1930's, it has all the charm of old Florida, but with the updated amenities we all crave. Sit on the front porch and watch the world go by, and feel free to use your laptop with our free Wi-Fi. Though not a mansion, we have comfortably stayed at the house with friends, and the kids always bring friends along when we visit.
