About John Yeary

We discovered Cedar Key back in 2001. Needing a scenic quiet getaway from the stress and crowds that come with New York living, we stayed at Fenimore Mill several times before purchasing unit 10A (Sand Castle) and the rest is history! We still enjoy coming back and sitting out on the balcony with our morning coffee and watching the amazing wild life and everything else that Cedar Key has to offer! See you soon. John and Joanne Yeary

Why John Yeary chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

There is nothing like Cedar Key. This historic village offers unparalleled bird watching and site seeing in a small island community setting while at the same time offers excellent dining, shopping, and exploring. Sand Castle at Old Fenimore mill offers luxury living while being steps away from all that Cedar Key has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

Sand Castle is unique because of its location within the condominium complex. Our unit is in the most private and peaceful building on the grounds, has first floor convenience, and a huge balcony for viewing the Gulf of Mexico as well as the wildlife filled back waters.

Luxury 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath in the heart of Cedar Key

great place/ great condo

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful vacation. Cedar Cove is "Old Florida" at its best. Our condo was well situated, very comfy and had all essentials. Internet worked perfectly; all appliances which made it like home. Only necessary upgrade would probably be replacing carpet with laminate flooring which would make clean-up a breeze. Fenimore is a nice complex. I would certainly recommend this vacation to all.

This property on Cedar Key overlooks an inlet and tidal marsh in which nearly every bird species in Florida can be seen. The sunrise on the back porch is just as breath-taking and peaceful as the sunsets on the front porch. The pool and hot tub are maintained very well. My wife and I stayed here during the business week when Cedar Key is at less than full throttle following the Independence Day weekend. There was still plenty to do. We plan to return one day during the cooler months. We brought most of our own groceries to take advantage of the full kitchen but there is a modest grocery store on the island. If you have a bicycle, bring it. It makes for exploring Cedar Key much more enjoyable. I'm sure you can find a rental bike if you'd prefer that. Breakfast choices in town are very limited, but there are plenty of great places to eat for lunch and dinner. The Missus and I ate breakfast in the condo on most days. If you like clams, then this is a great place to get them. Be sure and ask the restaurant if they're locally-harvested. Tony's Clam Chowder was the best! Lastly, the smoked mullet was very good too. We'll be coming back, even though we're native Floridians. This should tell you a lot about how nice this place is.

Florida Fantasy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon 34 years ago in Cedar Key and have the fondest memories. We just spent our anniversary there and it was everything wonderful we remembered. The people were very nice, the places to eat were great, and the rental condo had all the amenities. Even the Florida weather was perfect; cool mornings and evenings, and cloudless days producing extraordinary views. The condo had A/C, kitchen (we took some snack groceries), two big bedrooms, and two gracious bathrooms. The owners thought of everything; it was just perfect. The dining table chairs were very comfortable, and the sofa was big and luxurious. There was a covered balcony with breath-taking views of the water, private, and about a million stars at night. We ate at Tony's for dinner, Annie's for breakfast, and lots of places for lunch - all excellent. We rented a covered golf cart from the Golf Kart Company at the Park, toured the island and had a blast. There were cute shops, and lots and lots of birds. We also had our small dog (litter box trained), and he enjoyed all the new sniffs, and was welcome everywhere we went. We have lived out of the state for many years, but have just returned to Central Florida. The Key has all the modern conveniences (satellite, wifi internet), but has kept its rural coastal charm and allure - unlike other areas of Florida, that was a welcome surprise. At times, we felt like we had the whole island to ourselves. The immaculate condo was the centerpiece of our experience, but everything else together made for a unique time, which went too fast. We will be back. Our only recommendation to Cedar Key: don't change a thing. Perfection cannot be improved, and people do still want what you offer.

A wonderful vacation

  • 4 of 5

I plan to return next year. The condo was well maintain and I enjoyed coffee ever morning watch the birds.

The management office is friendly and accomodation looking after all small need.

The heated pool & hot tub I used most days and found clean and well maintain.

I enjoy the laid by attitude and intesting dining places and business in Cedar key.

I remove all the carpet for an easily main fall.

Beautiful & Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

The Old Fenimore Condos are great and Cedar Key a wonderful surprise. This unit has an especially natural and beautiful view of the marshes leading out to the gulf from the living room and balcony. We saw a ton of birds and dolphins, including a daily showing of the roseate spoonbills, and enjoyed the balcony all day long. You would never guess looking out back that if you went out the front door that it was just a minute walk to a very nice city playground and beach and in another minute you could be at the public dock and boat launch and have many good restaurants to choose from. We had a great trip and found the owner very pleasant to work with. Would definitely come again!

Cedar Key consists of a series of islands located approximately 4 miles into the Gulf Of Mexico along Florida's famed Nature Coast. Known for hosting some of the largest populations of birds in the state of Florida, you will see varieties hard to find anywhere else!

Go back in time and experience the 'real' Florida as you enjoy strolling down Dock Street taking in all the unique sites in this Historic town. Enjoy local restaurants, rent a golf cart and explore, or just sit on the beach and relax. There are also plenty of shops to check out on the Main Street area or take in a boat tour down at the Marina. You will find that everything is in walkable distance including the local market that stocks just about everything you will need.

If your looking for great fishing, kayaking, walking trails, shopping, sitting on the beach, or just relaxing taking in the nature beauty of Florida's nature coast, check out Cedar Key!
