My wife and I spent the Memorial Day 2006 weekend at the Cedar Key B+B. If you want to escape, de-stress, and recharge away from the rigours of everyday life, this is the place to come. We hardly did anything the whole time we were there, but we couldn't have been happier with the experience.
Breakfasts were extravagant and tempting - the homemade pancake platter in particular was excellent. The food in general on Cedar Key was decent, but it couldn't touch the breakfasts we had here each morning. Unlimited cookies and other snacks were a nice addition as well.
Each room has different amenities, but in general they all seemed well kept up and inviting. Our room (called the Summer Kitchen) was a bit cramped, but it connected directly to the back porch, which was a huge plus for us. Many of the other rooms are actually quite large, with the honeymoon suite topping them all (this is where we'll be staying next time!)
Away from the main roads, the inn is sheltered from most sources of noise (not to mention other people), so at times it feels like you have the whole area to yourself. Even so, you are still within walking distance of all of Cedar Key's restaurants and attractions.
We spent most of our days sitting on the back porch, reading, talking, or just watching the day go by. There are many activities to partake in if desired, but we had no problem filling a 4-day span squarely in a pair of comfortable rocking chairs, facing the inn's well-maintained garden and sprawling oak trees.
Overall, a highly recommended (and affordable) haven of rest and relaxation.
