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. Since we had seen and heard of Faraway that was the logical choice. We stayed in an efficiency (they have cottages and motel rooms as well) and although a tad tight space-wise, it was cozy enough for my lovely wife and I, and our new doggie. The Faraway is VERY pet Friendly and they issue you a mat and treats upon check-in. They also have books and movies to borrow while you are there. The staff were all helpful and friendly and definitely love animals. Our new Rotti felt welcomed and at home there, and made friends with all staff he encountered. Heck, he even found a little girlfriend staying in the cottage down the way! We recommend Faraway Inn whether you have a pet or not (but definitely if you do), accommodations are good, prices are reasonable, and it sits directly across from the waterfront and spectacular sunsets. Close to downtown and shopping/restaurants as well, just a short walk.
