About Lori Schleede

My husband and I moved to Cedar Key to wholesale farm raised clams in 1997. We work from home and enjoy the tranquil paradise of Cedar Key.

Lori Schleede purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Lori Schleede chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

We purchased this home, to use as a guest house as our home is a small cottage. We take pride in creating a warm, welcoming facility in which you will be comfortable for long or short term vacations. The views are of the downtown, marina area and barrier islands. Come enjoy all that Cedar Key has to offer in this charming community.

What makes this apartment unique

Once you arrive in Cedar Key, you can park your car and walk to most of the restaurants, bars and shops. You can fish from the public pier on Dock Street, just a block away, visit the historical society museum, library, grocery store, post office, atm, or public beach within a few minutes walk.

Perfect place to rest on our little getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked on a spur of the moment decision to get away for a night and celebrate our wedding anniversary. Lori was very accommodating and made sure we were taken care of even though she was on vacation herself. The suite was cute, comfortable, clean, and had plenty of space. The water pressure in the shower was good and the bed was comfortable for one night. Even though we didn't spend much time in the room, it was so great to have a very clean, convenient, relaxing place to refresh and cool off before striking back out again. The location was perfect. Easy walking to restaurants, community art center, and waterfront etc. It was the perfect little getaway!

Sweet short-term getaway

  • 4 of 5

Clean little efficiency in a good location. There is no stove/oven to cook the local clams or I would have rated it higher.

Clean, well located (great view)but could use a little loving

  • 3 of 5

For a couple nights this place can work but it's not ideAl for long term stays. One of the things we were surprised was missing was a stove ! Don't plan on cooking unless it's salad ! Also , curtains would be good for privacy and to keep the light out: both in the main room and the bedroom. And finally, the fact that it feels like it's a bit like an elderly person lives there (old carpet, decorations...) but that for us is not a big deal.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you were not happy with the efficiency unit, the listing states the kitchen arrangement. We like to encourage our guests to visit the local restaurants when visiting Cedar Key. As far as our decorating, we try to stick with our theme "Sailors Choice" and will consider your opinion in future decorating. For a darker sleeping arrangement the bedroom door blocks the light from the front windows.

Quaint and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Cedar key FL seems to take you back in time! Very relaxing and very friendly! We loved the fact that we could walk everywhere easily and the whole town had great lighting at night. Our condo was spacious and our favorite part was the balcony! Tony's clam chowder and key lime pie were the best and steamers restaurant had fabulous oysters and clams and even entertainment! If we come back next year this is where we would stay!
