Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Cedar Key - Goose Cove Cottage

Accommodations: Goose Cove Cottage is a spacious one bedroom with a queen size bed and two additional single beds in the first half of the living room. This property was completely remodeled in late 2012 with new kitchen, bath, lighting etc., and is very airy and light. The Kitchen is ready to use with complete sets of dishes, pots and pans, silverware, stove, microwave, coffee pot and utensils and a local grocery store can provide what you need. A washer and dryer combo is in the kitchen. Linens and towels are provided also. Cable is provided on our new 40” flat screen TV, as well as Wi-Fi.

Spectacular views of the gulf, especially at sunset are seen from both the kitchen and living room. A boat dock out back on the canal allows fisherman to keep their boats in the water, but watch the tides to ensure enough water flow to get out to the gulf when ready to fish. This property is located on a commercial fishing/clamming canal in the back as well as the Gulf of Mexico in the front making it a unique property in a one-of-a-kind town. Like to fish but didn’t bring a boat, you can fish and crab right from our dock or join others on the new huge fishing dock downtown.

The walk to town and the city’s beach is a leisurely 20 minutes along picturesque streets. Some guests rent golf carts in town to explore the entire island. The natural beauty of Cedar key and its slow pace allow visitors to feel what old Florida must have been like years ago allowing for very restful vacations. Whether you are here to just relax, sit and read a book, kayak, fish or just to enjoy the diverse wildlife, Goose Cove Cottage can accommodate you comfortably.

Cedar Key hosts several festivals during the year so get your reservations early if you plan to attend one as the town fills up fast on those weekends. Special events include the Seafood Festival in October, the Art Festival in April, the Small Craft Boat Festival, the ClamAmerica celebration on the 4th of July and a kayak festival in September.

Relaxation Central

  • 5 of 5

Goose Cove Cottage is a small but amazingly spacious cottage right across from the gulf. The cottage was spotless and equipped with everything we needed for our weekend getaway...including two folding chairs, a large and small cooler and towels galore.

The cottage had more than enough space to entertain and sleep six comfortably. The decor was "beach house" and though seating was adequate it was not crowded.

We had breakfast and supper on the front porch every day because the view of the gulf was too beautiful to stay inside.

Thank you, thank you Bill for providing such a wonderful, quiet, and relaxing home for our getaway. Your instructions were easily followed and your home a treat.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the thoughtful review. We do try and stock it so it will be like home. The deck where you enjoyed meals is a new addition and it does pull the living space outdoors. Hope to have you back when you can.

Very well managed and well located home.

  • 4 of 5

Cedar Key is a step back in time - an exceptionally beautiful Key community that looks like Key West may have looked in the 1960's. We found the people to be warm and friendly, and the food and arts community were both remarkable and robust. I will definitely go again and for a longer period.

Goose Cove Cottage is well located on a very quiet street - the view from the kitchen window is the Gulf of Mexico. We made our reservations at the last minute - the host responded quickly with very clear directions and worked hard to accommodate us. He also made great suggestions for things to see and do on Cedar Key. The property was spotless and very comfortable. I would recommend renting a golf cart to tour the island - it made a huge difference.

Small boat lovers perfect property!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was great! We really appreciated having enough parking for 2 trucks and boats/trailers. One was a 25hp john boat and the other an 18ft 75hp boat. The property has its own boat ramp (be sure to watch the tides as they can get pretty low) and dock which was super convenient (not to mention saving $16 x 2 boats x 2 launches = $64 in boat ramp fees for the weekend)! There is also a hose available to flush your motor. It really is a small boat lover's perfect place. The "cottage" appears to be a single wide mobile home with an addition and there was plenty of room for 2 couples. The cottage was very clean and tidy. The neighborhood and cottage is pet friendly and we were able to bring our small dog with us. We will definitely be repeat renters and have already booked our next stay.

Very clean and very nice.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very easy to work with and the place is very clean. The view was great and sitting on the dock at the end of the day was well worth it!

Great Relaxing Stay.

  • 5 of 5

Forth or Fifth stay at the Cottage. We will keep coming back.

Great place to kick back and relax. This place is always immaculate. Well maintained and clean. If you forget something it is probably stocked in the cabinets but there is a local grocery store down town if you forgot something . Nice little grill if you are a grill kind of person. Great view of the Bay. Caught some crabs on the dock out back on the canal. A bit small but it is early in the season. Most neighbors are locals and real friendly. The area is real dog friendly and some of the locals - both dogs and people stop while walking buy to say hi.

Short walk to downtown if you are a walker - only a mile. You can walk to the museum or airport about the same distance. If you have never been to Cedar Key - nice restaurants down town. Good Seafood, other food and selections of adult beverages. Good fishing pier downtown with facilities. Many places you can buy clams that are great by the bag of a 100.

No I am not related to the owner, just a happy customer.
