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. This was our first visit to Cedar Key and the Faraway Inn was a perfect choice for accommodations.... More

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

My stay here was amazing. The staff , Suzanne, Shelly, and Steve, greet everyone with a warm smile. As soon as you step outside you stand in a courtyard that is clearly Turtle's home. The accommodations make the stay almost impossible to stay away. The artistic decor keeps you noticing all the minor details. This has become my favorite place... More

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.
