We decided to visit Cedar Key on a whim after driving through on a Saturday a few weeks ago. We saw that Harbour Master was right on the water, so when we returned home, we gave them a call. Booking was done on the phone after reviewing the suites online; it was fast and easy, and the young lady we spoke with was really pleasant and knowledgeable. When we arrived for our weekend getaway, we checked in with the staff in the gift shop and they were all very friendly and even offered to help with our bags. We parked about a block away in the lot by the fire station with no problems at all. There are no elevators, but the stairs are quite wide, we had no problem navigating them. We stayed in the Tropical Tranquility suite and it was awesome! The room was very well appointed with lots of attention to detail....it had a ocean theme and definitely put you in a "beachy" mood. There was a very useful kitchenette, fully stocked, right down to the wine glasses. Sitting room area with a nice flat screen tv that had a good selection of channels. The bathroom was large with tub/shower, sink area, and toilet area. The bed is king sized with windows all around offering stunning views. (There are blinds for privacy.) The wraparound balcony is amazing, with side view of the garden, and the front is right on the gulf....beautiful! Housekeeping will only come in if you are there, which I liked. If you need anything all you have to do is ask. The innkeepers are just fantastic, and could give the chain hotels lessons in customer service. This accommodation is close to everything we wanted to do in Cedar Key. Tours,food, shopping, bars, and the beach are all within walking distance. There is also a little grocery store nearby if you forgot any supplies. All in all, we had a marvelous getaway weekend at Harbour Master, and we will be back.
