Cedar Cove Resort & Cottages

Castaways Welcome

Striking the perfect balance between boutique beachfront hideaway and beloved fixture of “Old Florida” hospitality, Cedar Cove Resort & Cottages nestles into its beachfront Anna Maria Island setting as comfortably as the dolphins that play just steps away in the Gulf of Mexico. Amid lush coconut palms and colorful orchids, guests ease into an island rhythm of sun, salt air, and gentle surf – and make plans to return again next year.

What Our Friends Are Saying


“We love the staff and this place! This is our fourth time here and I don’t think we could come to the island and stay anywhere else. The location, staff and beach access is what makes this place so amazing! We brought friends and our parents this time and they had nothing but a great experience too! We also loved the new bikes on property for us to use! Thanks again to all the staff we WILL be back!”



“Everything was perfect, starting from a very easy check-in and excellent easy reserved parking. The room was perfectly clean, the grounds are beautiful, and everything is Old School Florida. Location could not be better with a little private beach sitting area. Close to great restaurants and beach shops. Excellent peaceful location to get some work done!”

-Michael F

“This is my 4th time staying at this resort. By far the best! The private beach is clean, the chairs and towels are in great condition. The atmosphere is positive and laid back, the staff is friendly and professional. No complaints! Can’t wait to go back next year! ”
