Quaint cottage with a gulf view; enjoyed a beautiful sunset sipping wine on a beautiful April evening. The staff was hospitable and the complimentary use of bicycles, canoes and kayaks to guests was a bonus. Enjoyed a peaceful swing overlooking the gulf on a clear night after walking back from a wonderful dinner at Tony's. We will be back!

My husband & I have been coming to cedar key for our wedding anniversary every year (this will be our 3rd year). We have a boat & a dog and the Faraway Inn is THE BEST place to stay in town. Best sunset area and great place (right across the street) to launch kayaks & canoes. Great price. We park... More

Once we found the faraway inn 13 years ago we have been back every year. We have travelled most of Florida and this is the smallest, old Florida town you can get. And the faraway is perfect. The location is amazing right across from the water. We haven't found any other places so cute and affordable on the water. Staff... More

We spent two nights at the Faraway Inn. We had a very pleasant experience there. We took advantage of the bicycles they keep on hand and toured the island while getting some exercise. The owners were very friendly and both they and the other guests were unobtrusive.

We stayed in a cabin. It was an efficiency nice but more than we needed for a one night stay. I would recommend it for any stay but great for week ends or longer. Friendly and helpful staff, great location for watching sunsets and within walking distance to the pier.

We've been here several times before and I've written a long review previously, so this is just an update. The staff is still friendly, the rooms are still clean, the view is still fantastic and the cat is still welcoming guests at the front of the office. We booked late and had to grab the only room open over our... More

A delightful atmosphere, comfortable accomodations, great view, and a pet owners paradise. The staff is wonderful and we can't wait to go back!Including the bikes was the icing on the cake. I hope we have a little warmer of a day next year so we can use the kayaks or canoes..

We have been to Cedar Key on many occasions but had not stayed at Faraway Inn before. After bringing home our rescue Rotti in December, we had to find pre-friendly accommodations for our next trip.

We called last minute for a room on a Saturday night and were able to book their last available cottage. It was super cute, roomy, and affordable. All staff members on the phone and in person were some of the nicest I've ever encountered. Thanks for a great experience in Cedar Key!!!
