Charming location with top notch innkeepers. We came in frazzled after a busy season at work. After kayaking, biking, and ocean view swinging (all free to guests) several times each day, we are leaving renewed, refreshed, and amazed at all this quaint village has to offer. Cottages have everything you could possibly want: great views and even an unlimited supply... More

Whenever we've gone on vacation, even visiting the most pristine and Paradise-like destination is often marred by the fact that too many don't recycle and aren't "green." Faraway Inn offers guests a way to visit lovely and pristine Cedar Key, with zero guilt that you're hurting the planet while having a good time. Examples of our "green" stay included the... More

I've lost count. Is this our 5th or 6th trip here? A dearly departed friend first introduced us to this place. My fur babies instantly adopted it. And we obviously return year after year. I still want to steal a couple of pieces of the yard art. I could go on and on about the cleanliness, the fluffy towels, the... More

We have come here many times - the ambiance is amazing - we're right across the street from the water with gorgeous sunsets!! Peaceful - tropical - the fishpond, fresh herb garden... What strikes you first is the cleanliness - you can smell a light scent of bleach when you enter the room. Everything was spotless, down to the glassware.... More

Stayed here for a night after reading the reviews. A really cool little place--quaint, colorful, friendly. My only regret is that I wasn't able to stay longer. Pros: Very clean, vibrant colors, free kayaks and bikes, great sunset view, and a friendly staff. Cons: My family was not there to enjoy it with me. Can't wait to come back here... More

The Faraway Inn was the very first place my wife and I stayed at when we visited Cedar Key. They offered us bicycles and kayaks as part of the package and we had the time of our lives. We not only fell in love with each other all over again....but we fell in love with Cedar Key as well. So... More

We stayed here for three days, very relaxing, beautiful rooms, great view of the Gulf and the swings that face the Gulf is the best. They have the softest sheets I have ever slept on. Very clean room and a porch with chairs and side tables. Driving around in the golf carts on the streets is so much fun, we... More

Clean, querky, kinda retro, sunsets on the Gulf seen from our porch, dolphins seen in the bay and they love dogs. Perfect! We were down in Cedar Key for a week escaping northern Indiana weather. The Inn even has free bikes, kyakes and canoes. The Inn is made up of several small cabins and some motel rooms. Our cabin had... More

Loved Cedar Key and Faraway Inn is everything everyone says in these reviews. We will be back! It's a easy walk to everything. They offer golf carts and bikes if you don't want to walk. Shelley was very friendly and made us feel at home.
