Historic gem has been carefully remodeled while maintaining its charm. The structure was built in 1880 for two sisters. The upstairs was always a residence and the downstairs was the home of Bodiford Pharmacy. Today, you can stay here and walk to everything downtown. No car needed, Restaurants, shopping, art, co-ops, museum, City park, beach, welcome center and more are all located within a couple blocks. Now named The Carmen House.

Great rental in downtown Cedar Key that has such charm and character. The space has modern amenities with antique flow from the historic stairs, to the windows, to the tabby walls from the 1800's. This amazing space is suited for families, large groups or a great getaway for just two!

The access to the building is on B street with entry by the picket fence into the arbor, up the steps to the "Green" door. There will be another bright green door that will take you up stairs to the space. The entire floor and above floor is available for guests with a great veranda for relaxing off the kitchen.

We will always be available for any questions or any assistance during your stay.

The Carmen House, Circa 1880, is located in the heart of downtown Cedar Key. All stores, restaurants are located within a short walking distance, as well as the beach, marina, Library and the Cedar Key Garden. Rent a golf cart from nearby or a bike.

As mentioned, renting a golf cart or bike is an option on the island. We can provide additional information after booking.

The Stephenson's and Allen's decided to purchase this and do some minor renovations of paint, decorating and adding new appliances to make this historic property available for people visiting Cedar Key to enjoy. The downstairs is used by a hairdresser (Hair by Haley) and a massage therapist (Diana Bible). The upstairs is available to rent short term. We truly enjoy making and preparing a great experience for people who want to come and stay at The Carmen House. We struggled many months with a name for the house and finally came up with Carmen (CARyn Stephenson) and (MENdy Allen) combined. It is a pleasure for us to make your stay enjoyable and hope you gain pleasure out of this historic building while staying in Cedar Key!
