Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this Rye Key house is the place for you. Located in Cedar Key, Rye Key is a small gated community of fewer than 15 houses. Our house offers the ultimate in quiet and privacy. It is located on a short street with only two other houses and on a lagoon shared with only one other house. Although every room has many windows, curtains seem unnecessary for privacy. This quiet privacy is only two miles from the historic commercial area of Cedar Key, easily reached by car, golf car or bicycle.

The light-filled, tile-floored house features two bedrooms separated by a great room. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, bathroom, sliding glass doors and a small covered porch. The great room has a living area with leather furniture, a dining area and a sun porch with a wall of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. The fully equipped kitchen is separated from the great room by a bar with stools.

There are porches on both the land and water sides of the great room. A private dock allows access to the water. Fish for red fish, kayak, canoe or simply sit and watch the tide change. The lagoon is home to many varieties of birds, including herons, egrets and osprey. Mullet jump, catfish and stingrays swim in the shallows, the big red fish feeds on the oyster bars and, occasionally, a dolphin visits.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our days in your beautiful home in Cedar Key. It was exactly what we wanted – secluded, scenic, quiet and full of wildlife. We really enjoyed the sunsets on the dock!

Amazing place tucked away in this hidden key on your own paradise of privacy!

  • 5 of 5

We really wanted to find a place off the beaten path on our travels that we could unwind in, and Cedar Key was that place. We found Heron Lane and that made it even more special! The privacy of Rye Key and the feeling of country seclusion was incredible. The home was really a great fit for our family with a chill vibe and AMAZING view of the water, marshes etc...

The dock/pier was where we spend most of our time though. We saw more unique things on the water than we ever have. A few things for us: a school of Dolphins hunting together at high tide, literally thrashing around in pairs going after smaller fish! We also saw huge redfish feeding, stingrays, mullet jumping and many bird species.

We also fished and crabbed for hours and hours. So much fun with our three little ones. Nothing negative about this home and property. A few older touches in the house but very nice. We cannot wait to come back to Cedar Key and Heron Lane!

And everyone in the restaurants, markets, bait shops and other places were awesome! (We stayed on a Mon/Tues and many places were closed but that added to our trip, to be here in such a sleepy part of the week)

All the internet prices are WAY different than the " real" price. The place we stayed at Heron lane was nice but LIKE ALL THE OTHERS the REAL cost a night was SUBSTANTIALLY more than what is listed under the chamber of commerce listing on line

Heron Lane is in a beautiful spot . Great for bird watching with your morning coffee. I loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Cedar Key and staying at the Heron Lane house. The home is very clean and is in a great location. The view from the living room is amazing ! We hope to come back for a longer stay. We loved Cedar Key as it is unspoiled and peaceful and a great place for kayaking and birdwatching.

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 year old son, dog, and I stayed at Heron Lane over MLK weekend, and it was simply magnificent! We had planned to stay two nights, but upon arrival we immediately decided to extend to three. The view is glorious- both inside and outside of the house. The open floor plan with the wall of windows facing the water is breathtaking. And though neighbors are close to you, the tree coverage makes for the perfect amount of privacy. And the dock is an added bonus. Hopefully next time we will catch some fish! Everything about the place was so comfortable and inviting. I would highly recommend this place to everyone! Can't wait to go back!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 3 nights here in late July and had a wonderful time. We've rented several homes there and this is one of the best.

It's very spacious, we had room to spread out and its quiet. It's not a new home and that's a plus, actually. There are balconies for anyone who wants one and the views are wonderful.

I had a great conversation over the phone with the owner and he made everything simple with no fuss. He's a pro and it shows.

Contact him and have a fine stay. CK is busy and hot as hell in July but go enjoy this house!.
