True definition of ‘quiet, little seaside town’ and these cottages are great for enjoying Cedar Key. Party of 4 with 2 large dogs in Cottage 2 for the weekend. It was a little snug but we didn’t stay inside too much. The kitchen was well-stocked but we only used the refrigerator. Shelly, office manager, was extremely accommodating. We rented a... More

We really enjoyed our trip to Cedar Key, Florida. It was nice staying at Faraway Inn, with our own cabin and wonderful views of the Gulf of Mexico. There is so much nature and activities that bring you close to the outdoors. I like the simple ways that life slows down in this community. This location is far from the... More

Had a repeat wonderful time in our favorite cottage at FAI! Accommodations were terrific! Love the grounds, so much eye candy, so quiet and peaceful! love my (!!) swings! The island is a secret no more, so many came this weekend (Xmas) but this end of the island (FAI) was quiet and serene. Oliver & Doreen are the perfect hosts!

My two friends and I embarked on our annual "girlfriends" trip. Each year we try to find a new place in Florida, someplace we've never been. Well, Cedar Key filled the requirements, but at first I had a difficult time finding a place that would suit us. Somehow, I finally found the Faraway Inn and it looked like just what... More

When was the last time the owner of a motel helped you unload your car and carry in the luggage? Oliver greeted me the moment I pulled up and within a couple of minutes made me feel like we were old friends.

11th year at the faraway inn. Once we found our perfect place we come back every year. Great location, unbeatable prices with many amenities included. Clean and friendly. Wish we lived closer and could come more than once a year. We have travelled most of Florida and now we found our home. Check out their book, Notes from Faraway Inn
