Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our stay at Nestled In Time. Time went way too fast, but it was very comfortable and relaxing. Especially enjoyed being only a couple blocks away from the water's edge and a great view of some gorgeous sunsets. Thank you for providing a clean, comfortable, and well-equipped house. Our two black labs seemed to enjoy the accommodations as well!

What a fun place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved Cedar Key!! The cottage was just as shown and was very clean (I am a clean freak). Jennie was so friendly and helpful. I took my dog, the town is very dog friendly and we were made to feel very welcome by the restaurants with outdoor eating areas. This is a great place to go relax and experience Florida away from the traffic. Will come back to Cedar Key and will stay in this cottage again.

Owner's Response: Susan: SO glad you enjoyed your stay in "the gem of the Nature Coast". We are dog friendly, many of the business owners are dog lovers and realize our furry family members need a place out also. Looking forward to your return visit, when you and Sadie can relax again and enjoy all the natural treasures of Cedar Key. We don't have a lot of traffic, nor a lot of "glitz" but we do have good people, beautiful scenery, and lots of "real" Florida birds, wildlife, views and salt laden sea breezes. Thank you for the comment about the cleanliness. I'll be sure to tell our housekeeper, Lelsie. She will love knowing you appreciated her hard work!

A nice little cottage close to a couple of restaurants and stores.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. This house lacks some things for a long stay, vaccum cleaner, radio, iron, hair dryer, more blankets, updated fry pan and 9"x13" pan. We purchased some of these items for our convenience. A couple more chairs for entertaining and dining would be good.

A little sprucing up would make the cottage more desirable. I suggest a new bathtub and maybe a coffee table in main room. I thought the house could be cleaner and suggest a new kitchen mat. The kitchen also needs more cutlery.

I hope the owners find these suggestions helpful. We have stayed in many places over the years in Cedar Key and Nestled in Time was average in comfort.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the detailed constructive help! We will look at this HARD and take your suggestions to heart. Don't know about the coffee table though, sure would make that room small. Glad you enjoyed the location, it is close to everything!

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Jennie when we arrived. She checked to make sure everything was in working order, gave us a brief tour and told us to call or message her if we had any problems. I must say when reading reviews to find a vacation place it rarely addresses the comfort of the bed. This is important to me because if I don't sleep well then I have a hard time enjoying the day. The bed was so comfortable which is often a rare find in some vacation rentals.

There is a breakfast restaurant at the end of the road that is very good. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

I also left my house shoes there so Jennie is going the extra mile and mailing them to me. She also found a shirt that I did not realize I left. Now that is service!

My husband enjoyed the recliner and the recliner couch. It's a man thing. It was just the two of us and our dog so there was more than enough room. In fact it is very spacious.

Thanks to Jennie for taking such good care of us!

Nice location! Don't plan visit during end of July and August, too many businesses closed.

  • 4 of 5

Really nice rental, easy to be in and relax. We were able to walk to town and back for a lil nap...when we return in cooler weather, we look forward to a meal or relaxing on the screened porch. Only drawback to our stay had nothing to do with the house, but it was the off-season, which we didn't know, if we had, we would have postponed our stay. We drove 8 hours and there were, at least, 4 to 5 restaurants/attractions we had on our list, which were closed for break....We are from Louisiana, where the thermometer hits 90s all summer, as well, and few to none of our establishments close down for a Summer break...(nice for business owners, but not so much for visitors who aren't aware.)...We will definitely return to Cedar Key... Friendly people and good clam chowder! Felt 2 nights was too much, this time of year, though.

Relaxing and Low Key on the Key

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need to relax and unwind. Comfortable and well appointed and easy walking or biking distance to stores, water and most other things. Enjoyed walking the charming nearby residential streets as much as the rest of the area. Friendly atmosphere and good food - what more do you want, besides an easy affordable and pleasant rental experience?
