My husband and I do not travel often because we have two dogs and we do not like to board them. As many of you know, if you have fur kids that are more than 25-30 lbs it's very difficult to find a hotel. We had almost given up when we stumbled across Faraway Inn and we were thrilled. They... More

My husband and I explored many options when searching for a getaway to "old Florida". As owners of an elderly labrador and seekers of a quiet retreat, this lovely little inn was the perfect answer. We stayed in cottage #4, which was awesome. Although the "furthest" spot from the waterside (the grounds consists of one city block), it was only... More

It was our first trip to Cedar Key and Faraway Inn. The cottages were quaint, clean and comfortable. The staff welcomed us like we were long time friends and even had treats waiting for our dog. They accept dogs of all sizes which is hard to find nowadays. The property is very peaceful and laid back. A few of the... More

Wonderful peaceful location on the waterfront. Spacious rooms (we had the larger room with water views). Pet friendly. Will be returning. Bikes are fun to explore the location and head to local restaurants. Owners are very friendly and answer any question you may have.

First time to Cedar Key. Loved it and the Faraway Inn made the trip even better. Great location, excellent staff, and good value. The Kayaks, bikes and canoes are included in price. It is a pet friendly hotel, in fact there are many "shrines" if you will to the animal kingdom at the Faraway. My only reservation might be that... More

The folks at the Faraway Inn are so friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 10 and had beautiful views and a front porch. We took advantage of the free bicycles, the kayaks, and the board games more than once. Being able to use those items at any time was a definite advantage because you don't have to pay extra... More
