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!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Nestled In Time for a long weekend. Jennie has always been fantastic with her rentals. This is the 4th property of Jennie's we stayed at. So far it is our favorite. My wife and I and our 2 large dogs had plenty of room. We really enjoyed the screened in back porch. Perfect place for our morning coffee. We were within walking distance of all the good spots on Cedar key. If you need a place in Cedar Key, contact Jennie. She will take care of you.

Owner's Response: first, thank you for the kind words! You and Josie are ALWAYS welcome, you are the perfect guests Your dogs are welcome to stay, they can enjoy the screen porch and fresh air, or stay in the house, it is leather furniture and holds up well to dogs. I love the location my self, (I should I live next door), the convenience of being able to be downtown in under 10 minutes. Looking forward to seeing you again SOON.

Nestled in Time

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed the sleepy little seaside town! Great restaurants, try Annie's and Tony's. House could use a little better dusting, a dehumidifier and smelt like smoke, but very peaceful.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed the Gem of the Nature Coast!! Cedar Key is a great place for good food, good times and relaxation. I'm sorry the house smelt like smoke, NO ONE smokes in the house, might have been the wildfires we have been having, I live next door and I know I've been smelling those at night. We're doing our monthly deep clean this week, so the dust problem will be addressed; one of the joys of Cedar Key is that homes can be left open for fresh air and natural breezes, we have NO crime, and sometimes Mother Nature brings in "her own essence".

Owner's Response: Pat: Thank you so much for the kind words!! So glad you enjoyed the house and hope to see you again, REAL soon. The convenience of being downtown where one can walk anywhere but still be able to "escape" home is great, isn't it? It is compact, but just large enough for a small gathering, , and the screened back porch sure does make the morning coffee taste so much better! Looking forward to your next visit!

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!
