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!

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?

Perfect Birthday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we wanted for a 2 night stay in Cedar Key. Very clean and all ameneties were provided as stated in the description of the cottage. This is the rainy season in FL, so it made it difficult to explore....which is why it was perfect to hang out at a beautiful home with a screened in porch, use the wifi, watch tv and cook in a fully loaded kitchen. Nestled in time, Cedar Key in itself reminded us of the way Key West used to be back in the 70's and 80's. Thank you for a wonderful 48th birthday, Nature Coast Realty. Jennie and Dottie were right on point and would recommend this property to anyone who wants a reminder of how it used to be. Quiet, no nosey neighbors. Tony's Restaurant has the best New England style clam chowder you will ever experience. Overall, we will be back!

Relaxation on island time

  • 5 of 5

Matt and I had been discussing a getaway adventure since the busy season at work slowed down for us. I did some searching around online and found Nestled In Time in Cedar Key. It is a 6 1/2 hour drive for us from Georgia, but we'll worth it!!! This sweet cottage provided all the things you need and we felt so at home there during our week long stay. We really enjoyed the screened in porch - we got to truly relax from our daily stresses here. Everyone in CK are so friendly, the local restaurants are great and everything is in walking distance. Thank you again for providing this perfectly cute cottage - we truly enjoyed our stay!!

Absolutely cleandorable

  • 5 of 5

Nothing negative to say!!!!! The place was clean clean clean!!!! Very happy with the house my wife and I stayed 3 nights and not 1 complaint! Although, I was bit concerned with the kittys and the no water situation that they endured. I made it my job to make sure they were hydrated with icewater. I think every time they saw me they ran right to the water dish. All in all was a glorious place. Want to plan another time same house. Brought our bikes and never touched the truck once.
