About Lori Schleede

Mr. Carl, the builder of the house wanted people to come and enjoy his dream. As part owner of the property, I am pleased to present Cloud 9 as a vacation rental.

Why Lori Schleede chose Cedar Key

Best view. Quiet, private. Large home suits families and friends traveling together comfortably. We encourage you to enjoy this lovely home, but be mindful of our neighbors who can hear you when you gather outside or on the screen porch.

What makes this house unique

Truly unique, with a horseshoe pit, fire pits and boat dock. You can enjoy and have fun together at this well thought out property.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family from Oregon came out to visit and the house was just the right size for the 10 of us. It had everything we needed and the dock was an added bonus for the kayaks we brought. The place could use a bit of upgrading, beds were a bit hard, but all in all, it was great. Everyone had a good time!

Great Place... with lots of character!!

  • 5 of 5

The place is old school beach cottage. Very clean... and perfect for a week or a couple of days. My brother and I, with our college aged sons, went down for a long weekend of fishing. Lori was great to work with, and she has a great place to get the best clams. Will definitely rent again.

Wish we found this earlier

  • 5 of 5

We've been having a reunion in CK for over 10+ years. I wish we had found Cloud 9 way back then. PERFECT accomodations for a group of 4 or more. Quite, open, and all the amenities you need.
