We stayed at the Faraway Inn for two nights in March. We walked to the grocery store, to restaurants for supper and around town for sightseeing. Launching our kayaks from the beach across the road from the Inn was a nice treat, as opposed to hauling them halfway across town if we had stayed somewhere else. Even at low tide, we could walk out to the water line without fear of getting stuck in the mud, unlike other shorelines in town. We loved meeting the resident cats, as well as the visiting dogs (and cat). The courtyard in front of the office was sheltered from the winds off the water, so was a comfortable place to sit in the afternoon and catch up on Facebook with the awesome wifi connection. Our motel room had everything we needed for making our own breakfast (except an electric tea kettle which we had us with us anyway). The bed was comfortable, the towels were super soft and the shower had lots of pressure. All in all, a very good place to stay in Cedar Key.
