THE TREEHOUSE, PET FRIENDLY, OPEN GULF , PRIVATE DOCK

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Cedar Key - The TreeHouse

Accommodations: The TreeHouse is a spacious two bedroom stilt home with a king size bed in the master bedroom with a ½ bath and two additional single beds in the second bedroom. It sleeps 4 to 5 comfortably with a roll away tucked under one of the single beds in case you need it. This property has a nicely done kitchen, a shower for two in the main bath, and is very airy and light. The Kitchen is ready to use with complete sets of dishes, pots and pans, silverware, stove, microwave, coffee pot and utensils and a local grocery store can provide what you need. A washer and dryer combo is in the kitchen. Linens and towels are provided also. Cable is provided as well as Wi-Fi. Two porches look out over the water and the front porch was literally built around two oak trees, hence the name TreeHouse.

Spectacular views of the gulf, especially at sunset are seen from both the dining and living rooms or enjoy it from the front porch while sitting in one of two canvas swing chairs or laying in the relaxing canvas hammock which hangs from the ceiling. A boat dock out back on the canal allows fisherman to keep their boats in the water, but watch the tides to ensure enough water flow to get out to the gulf when ready to fish. This property is located on a commercial fishing/clamming canal in the back as well as the Gulf of Mexico in the front making it a unique property in a one-of-a-kind town. Like to fish but didn’t bring a boat, you can fish and crab right from our dock or join others on the new huge fishing dock downtown. Crab traps are on the dock, just remember to bring them in from the water when you go! We are also pet friendly with a small extra fee to accommodate your best friend. Covered parking is available under the second porch and the property can handle multiple cars.

The walk to town and the city’s beach is a leisurely 20 minutes along picturesque streets. Some guests rent golf carts in town to explore the entire island. The natural beauty of Cedar key and its slow pace allow visitors to feel what old Florida must have been like years ago allowing for very restful vacations. Whether you are here to just relax, sit and read a book, kayak, fish or just to enjoy the diverse wildlife, The TreeHouse can accommodate you comfortably.

Cedar Key hosts several festivals during the year so get your reservations early if you plan to attend one as the town fills up fast on those weekends. Special events include the Seafood Festival in October, the Art Festival in April, the Small Craft Boat Festival, the ClamAmerica celebration on the 4th of July and a kayak festival in September.

AWESOME HOUSE WITH GREAT VIEWS!

  • 5 out of 5
The treehouse has everything for a wonderful, relaxing stay. Fully stocked kitchen, nice grill on screened porch. The house is big, comfortable and has everything you will need while in Cedar Key. We rented a golf cart and it's a nice drive from the house to dock street. The dock out back provided hours of fun catching crabs! Our dogs loved hanging out on the porches with us. After 2 long days of scalloping it was nice to come "home" and the treehouse gives you that feeling for sure. The view is amazing too! Tips: Don't leave without having Tony's Chowder, it really is the best chowder I've ever had! Don't forget your bug spray, it will ruin your fun outside! Don't miss breakfast at Ken's Seaside Diner, the crunchy french toast was outstanding! Thanks Bill for your help and tips too, the reds eluded us but we will be back for sure!

Owner's Response: Your review makes my mouth water. Fresh blue crabs off the dock and fresh scallops it's a wonderful world when you feast on your harvest. Thanks for your tips Cedar Key offers lots of menu items and now you can get Tony's clam chowder at Publix. The TreeHouse View is burned into my mind but I'm humbled every time I'm there. I look forward to your return.

TREE HUGGER

  • 5 out of 5
We came to cedar key for the coldest winter ever! The treehouse was completely warm and cozy. While there we visited the neighbors and bought fresh clams, met an incredible cat whisperer, ate the best clam chowder at tonys, and delicious quiche at Kona joes. We kayaked, hiked and toured the fabulous state park and historical society buildings. Everyday there was something interesting to do. Be sure to visit the Suwanee. The house itself is well appointed and comfortable. Bill, the owner, is very friendly and concerned about his renters well being. It was a fabulous and relaxing month. We loved Cedar Key.

THE BEST PLACE EVER!!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
It's July the 6th and we just got home from the best place to stay ever!! The Treehouse in Cedar Key. We had the best and most relaxing time. Plenty to do. We would look at our watches and couldn't believe how fast the days go by although the pace is very laid back.
Wonderful naps and a lot of things to do. Best breakfast was at Annie's hands down. We caught crab from the back and had them with our grilled steaks one night…delicious. The place was more than we expected and extremely well kept and clean. It was like being in your own home. Thanks to Bill for all of his help and we'll definitely be back!!!

Owner's Response: Blue crab will go with about anything. It's cool when nature feeds you. Thanks for the Annie's tip, it is a great place for lunch too. The July 4th holiday is hot but otherwise a fun time to be in Cedar Key. Thank you for the kind and thoughtful comments about the TreeHouse. Looking forward to your families return visit.

LOCALS TOLD US TO KEEP IT SECRET, BUT, OLD FLORIDA STILL LIVES!!! SHHHH!

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in the treehouse for a week. Not long enough. Not a single need in this house, but more time.
There is a gate to keep most dogs on the porch for no worries. But we have a little Houdini. Not much holds him back!
We ate fresh crabs we caught off the private dock. We fished 100 feet from the front door & 20 feet from the back. Our 5&9 year olds rode their scooters on the dead end road. We are an adventurous family. However, we live in a mountainous area where  we can find plenty to do. When we go on vacation, we want just that, a vacation. Cedar Key is perfect! Even my 2girls love the slower pace of the town. There is enough to do for daily entertainment, but nowhere as noisy as a tourist trap style beach. Not one rude encounter all week, even with a run to Walmart. No feeling like you need to clutch your belongings either.
Our Recommendations:
THE BIG DECK - shrimp basket
TIDEWATER tours
TONY'S - clam chowder
EITHER take or rent a golf cart!!!! Or bikes.
WATCH the tides! Some things are better high, some are better low.
EXPLORE - This was our second trip, & we found tons we missed before. I'm sure next time we'll find more we missed yet again.

PERFECTLY LAID BACK

  • 5 out of 5
I have to say Cedar Key was nothing I expected and everything I needed. It is quiet. Cell phones are rendered useless. I had no choice but to decompress. People were nice to me. The lady at the gas station where I bought my supplies treated me like she knew me. It has not been invaded by the uber commercial strip mall tourism industry that plagues the so many places in Florida. If you are seeking Disney, this is not the place for you. If you are seeking some solitude and privacy, though, I cannot more highly recommend Cedar Key and the Treehouse.

The house is clean and neat and has all the provisions you need to live like you are living at home. The gated porch was perfect for our dog to hang out and daydream about chasing after some of the island cats that roamed below. The screened in porch is a must for the evening unless you like the company of the no-see-ums.

Note: I only ran into one issue, and it was NOT related to the Treehouse. At the second house on the left on Airport after leaving the Treehouse, there are two huge dogs that the owner leaves out all day long that are contained by an Invisible Fence system. When I walked my dog down Airport Ave, they charged at me and the dog and scared me half to death. My dog could have cared less, but it really freaked me out since they boundary was exactly flush with the road. So...walk on the other side of the road till you pass that house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice and well written review. Cedar Key is truly a unique place. When you are there, folks treat you like family. Time works different there. You don't pay much attention to clocks or calendars.
Those porches at the TreeHouse are nice place to hang out. Thanks for the tip about the dog and the invisible fence. I love that walk to the airport - What a view and an opportunity to view nature in action.

PERFECT!!

  • 5 out of 5
It was the perfect little place for our family to stay. It was clean and had all the amenities we needed. My dog loved her walks and sitting on the porch with us while we stared at our beautiful view. My kids loved catching crabs off the back dock, thought that was the coolest thing ever. Looking forward to our next stay at the Tree House!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review. My kids are just starting college but their childhood is full of crab catching memories off that dock. I'm glad it was a good time for the family and I look forward to you're return.
