Pirate Cove Bayside Cottages

One of the most charming and relaxing destinations in Florida, Cedar Key is a historic fishing and claiming village located about an hour Southwest of Gainesville. Quietly nestled among a group of barrier islands off the Gulf Coast, you will fall in love with the slower pace of life as you explore the natural beauty that surrounds the Old Florida town.

Why You Should Stay at Pirates Cove Bayside Cottages

The friendly, laid back culture of the island matches perfectly with the feeling you get when you arrive at Pirates Cove. Brian and Lisa purchased Pirates Cove in 2018 and are intent on it remaining a family owned and operated business. It will always remain the same beloved Old Florida retreat, and as Lisa and Brian add their own personal touches you will continue to see their love of the area reflected in the property.

Things to Do at Pirates Cove Bayside Cottages

At Pirates Cove, you will enjoy beautiful sunrises over the bay.  Each cottage is equipped to make your stay feel like a home away from home.  All guests are welcome to use the canoe or you can bring kayaks to explore the mangrove islands right from our dock.

Tide depending, you can fish off of our two docks and since our cottages offer kitchens, outdoor grills, as well as fish cleaning stations, you can clean and prepare your catch for the freshest seafood meal on the island.  We are also a short stroll to the unique shops and chef-inspired restaurants of Cedar Key.

Dining at Pirates Cove Bayside Cottages

Since fishing is key in Cedar Key, one of the dining options is to cook your own meal in the kitchen that the cottages provide, for a delicious home meal!

There are various nearby options when it comes to dining, in case you want to dine out or to get more supplies for your homemade meals!
