Cary House Rental Photos and Description

This unique property is located on the southeast side of Jordan Lake with a public boat launch just .4 miles down the road and a public beach 3 miles away. Although we are not waterfront (There are no homes waterfront on Jordan Lake)It is the only vacation rental property available this close to Jordan Lake.
The property resides on 5 beautiful acres of open fields and wooded land, with a one acre fishing pond, The three bedroom rental home, and a renovated cabin built in 1908 with a barn and outbuildings.
The rental property consists of a new 2200 square foot addition built in 2008 which is connected to the cabin by a roofed open breezeway. The owners live in the cabin and the new addition serves as the vacation rental with its own private entrances.
The property still retains its nostalgic country feeling with its ancient oaks, maples and pines, and the original four room, tongue and groove southern pine interior cabin.
The vacation rental has two bedrooms upstairs with queen size beds - each with its own privately connected, tiled bathroom with vanity sinks. The two baths upstairs have whirlpool tubs/showers.
Outside the two rooms upstairs is a coffee bar with a small refrigerator to hold your favorite beverages, and a laundry room with a Maytag washer and dryer for your convenience.

This is the living room with a small antique table with four chairs for cards or games, a couch and chair, and one full size futon.

The property is located on 5 beautifully landscaped acres with a “pick your own” herb garden right outside the kitchen and a large produce garden from which we can provide you with succulent tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, squash, and other seasonal produce.

Onsite recreation includes horseshoes, fishing for bass, catfish, sunfish, etc. in our pond (catch and release), cycling, basketball, or just swinging in the hammock.
This is a very peaceful location with great views from everywhere, plenty of stars in the sky at night and a rustic fire pit to gather around at the end of the evening. (Don't forget to bring the S'Mores!)
All of the adjacent properties are located on between 5 and 8 acres so there is plenty privacy and space between homes and lots of fresh air.

Bill purchased this house in 2005
Why Bill chose Cary
We purchased our property at Jordan Lake as a future home with the potential to be a vacation property for people like us who enjoy the country for the freedom and peacefulness it has to offer at the end of a hard day's work. We also appreciate the convenience to Jordan Lake as we are avid boaters ourselves. We know that you will enjoy what we have to offer as much as we get to enjoy it every evening.
What makes this house unique
One of the most unique things about our place is the blend of old and new on the property itself. We enjoy the serenity and calm out here in the country, but still like to have the convenience to each of the Triangle's nearby cities and all they have to offer from shopping to recreation to entertainment. You can lose track of time so easily while you sit and watch the herons fly into the pond, listen to the tree frogs, and just gaze at the water while being only minutes from the city. The fresh air and stars at night are second to none.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi, Bill and Lisa.
We wanted to thank you for our wonderful weekend at Jordan Lake Studios! Your place is gorgeous but even more spectacular is your hospitality! The highlight of our stay was definitely the bonfire and visiting on your front porch on Sunday evening. We'd love to come back and do it again sometime. Sorry we didn't see you Tuesday morning to thank you and say good bye.
We had everything we needed, and more, in the rental house. Everything is decorated so beautifully. You two have thought of every need. And we loved all the Easter touches, especially the jelly bellies! We were so comfortable from the minute we arrived; you make it very easy to relax.
We wish you the best and hope we'll have a chance to rent your place again. We'd love to come back! We'll get a post on the VRBO site too. Thanks so much!
