Overview

About the property

Accommodations: Goose Cove Cottage is a spacious one bedroom with a Full 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 50” flat screen TV, as well as Wi-Fi. Cell phone service not very good in Cedar Key. Seems to work outside but not inside. Low ceilings in bedroom and going into living room. Best suited for folks under 6' 2''.

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 Pirate Festival and a kayak festival in September.

Had a great time.

The place is located in a great place the get a constant breeze with a beautiful view of the Gulf and keys. It is very quiet and peaceful and very dog friendly. We enjoyed the scenic walks and the friendly neighbors. Will definitely be back soon. Don't forget to get your clams like we did! Lol!

A nice getaway for a quiet weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Nice place with beautiful views of the water. The house has just about everything you will need for a nice stay. Just bring some food and you're all set. The people of this island are really nice friendly folks. It's like Florida used to be when I was growing up in the 1960s.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful Quiet Getaway. Away from the crowds but within walking distance (1 mile) of downtown restaurants. watering holes and shops.

Place is well stocked for visitors with beach towels, folding chairs, etc Kitchen is well equipped. This is about the 5th time we have stayed and will be back again.

Great deck to sit on to see the Gulf with all of it's birds. If you are new to the area I highly recommend going down town to the fishing pier before sunrise to watch the sun come up in the morning. Even though it is the Gulf Coast from the pier you can look east and see the sun come up over the water.

Owner's Response: I love sitting on the deck we were there a couple weeks ago and eagles were stealing fish from other birds in flight, What a great show it was. Dolphins are often splashing around feeding on mullet right out front. Thanks for the tip about the city pier at sunrise, A special experience that you never tire of. I also love the end of the road next to the airport runway at sunset. Thank you for continuing to come back we love hosting your stay.

All new furniture

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here a week and updated the look. We redecorated with all new living room furniture with beach- themed wicker and new dressers for added storage. New art and new linens complete the overall image. We enjoyed eating crabs caught off our dock and easily launched our 19 foot Carolina Skiff from our own ramp and caught enough trout to satisfy our need for seafood. Owners April 1, 2017

Perfect location, lovely, clean home--awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

You can sit on the deck and relax with a glass of wine (a nice bottle was waiting for us on the dining room table) and see the sunset, while watching ibis, egrets, and osprey fly over the Gulf of Mexico. At the back of the cottage is a dock. The house is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable, with all furnishings needed for your stay. In less than 5 minutes you can be on Dock Street having a Cedar Key dinner. The neighbors are friendly but unobtrusive. Excellent! I highly recommend Goose Cove Cottage.
