I have been in the Vacation Home Rental business for about 20 years. I was traveling to different areas, and renting homes, as opposed to hotel rooms; since I enjoyed the comfort of a home, I thought, 'Why not get into the business'. I live a short distance from the Log House on Lake Jeffords, so, if you have a problem, just call me. Thanks, Rich

Richard Jordan purchased this house in 1995

I choose this location because of the quiet, peaceful outdoor location, the character of the Log House, and the private lake.The sunsets are fabulous.

Lakeside home in Hawthorne FL.

My experience at this property was outstanding. It was very relaxing and my entire party was impressed. We were able to catch fish, sail around the lake and overall destress. The home was rustic and very comfortable. The only thing we needed was food and our swimsuits, although there were additional suits available. I would recommend this property very highly.

My entire family spent a weekend here and without exception we all really enjoyed our stay. The house and grounds are lovely, peaceful, comfortable, and very clean. No detail was missed, a fully stocked kitchen, linens, books, videos etc. The art displayed around the home was really cool. Our group included small children, teenagers, middle aged and older folks and there was something for every single age group to do. The game room is awesome, the lake was fabulous, the pool and spa were wonderful. The owner was extremely easy to work with. Our group of ten looks forward to our next stay!
Owner's Response: Thank you Renee. I look forward to seeing all of you again.

We were in Gainesville for my son's wedding and needed a place where we could gather to visit with friends and relatives traveling in for the occasion. This place was perfect. The grandkids had a wonderful time splashing in the pool and playing in the game room. The house is exactly as described and well kept. The only problem was, we really didn't get to spend enough time there. We are from Alaska and so just sitting by the pool, listening to the sounds of nature was a real treat! I really would stay here again if ever given the opportunity. My kids and grandkids absolutely had a wonderful experience.

What a great place for a family reunion! We could not have been happier. The owner was so patient with us, fair and accommodating! The home was comfortable and we all found our special spots right away. Kids went fishing, adults were poolside, some watched movies and we even had a few enjoying the front porch. Fantastic house and a great time for all! Thanks! Judy and Mike Servidio
Owner's Response: Thanks Judy and Mike, and hope to see you again. Ricjh

Fantastic Weekend!

This lake house was absolutely perfect for a relaxing weekend with friends and family! The house is in a great location - only 20 minutes to Gainesville but far enough away to feel like the old Florida getaway we had in mind. Rich has certainly thought of everything you could possibly need during your stay. We enjoyed sipping coffee in the rocking chairs on the front porch, lounging by the pool, riding bikes around the neighborhood and catching catfish off the dock. We hope to stay here again soon!

P.S. Make sure to check out the taxidermy museum near the house for a quirky rainy day activity!
Owner's Response: Thanks Cailin--for your next visit, I'm ordering nice weather. Rich
