“best get away ever”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

This is a wonderful quaint little place that suites the area well. We stayed in #9 with a big back porch screened in, right iff the kitchen. Got some local seafood and just enjoyed the atmosphere, good weather and peace and quite.

I would recommend the Mermaids Landing to anyone wanting to get away from the hussle and bussle. Very clean, make you feel like your stepping back in time. Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: #4 is right on the water, but #9 has a big screened in porch. All the rooms look great though

We came into town on Friday September 20th for a business conference, so we basically needed a place to lay our heads for the night and through to the next evening. Mermaids Landing fit our budget and we got more than we expected. The owner was very nice and accommodating when we arrived later than we planned. The cottage had a full kitchen and a large screened patio. It's a shame we didn't get to stay longer and really enjoy the place...we were on business, but we will definitely be back for fun and a chance to explore Cedar Key a little more.

Room Tip: Like others have said, cottage 9 is great if you want to cook a meal or buy groceries to keep for th...

Rode into town just too get away for a day...Check two other places coming no vacancies at either but was told to try Mermaids as our pray was answered 1 cabin left #9. It was clean and ready to go only negative was the A/C was at the head of the bed and noisy, was able to use the fan portion keeping it some what cool. All in all a nice place for a few days of peace and quite.

Room Tip: Ask for cabin #9 if you want to prepare you on meals, it has a full kitchen with screened back porch...

We spent 4 nights at this cozy, peaceful and relaxing cottage at Mermaids Landing. The owner was super friendly and helpful; the room was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed from cooking, bbq-ing, sleeping to relaxing on the back screened in porch. Even our dogs had a great time! Was a wonderful experience, I give Mermaids Landing an A+++

If you are looking for a relaxing, charming atmosphere in Cedar Key then Mermaids Landing is where you want to be. Places like this are disappearing; the cabins are old but clean, roomy and quiet. This is not the Ritz but it is also no where near the price of the Ritz! My husband and I enjoyed both of our stays at Mermaids Landing, the owner is friendly and helpful - the service is personable. Mermaids Landing is our only choice for accommodations when we visit Cedar Key!

I have to confess that I was a little apprehensive about making reservations after reading mixed reviews. Nevertheless, I made the reservation for one night. Upon arriving, the inkeeper greeted us and offered a choice of 2 available cottages. We opted for cottage #7, which is okay for 2 persons. Considering my obsessive compulsive disorder with cleanliness, I might say that it was up to my standards, with the exception of the kitchen utensils, which are not sanitized. In fact, there is a sign stating it. (I've seen that in other cottages, therefore I assume is the norm). The place is quite pisturesque. The only problem we encountered was that the toilet clogged probably with a little too much of toilet paper, for which it overflowed. After the incident, it started to work fine. We left the room thereafter for a few hours and upon returning, there was a raw sewage smell. I think it was caused by the possibility of having a septic tank in the property. It bothered for a little bit, then the smell went away; hence, we had a good night sleep. The choice is yours: conveniently located, good price and cute. If I enjoyed my stay, you should be able as well.
