About Richard Jordan

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

Why Richard Jordan chose North Central Florida

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.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous place! My husband and I visited with our five kids, ages 16-6. Everyone had a great time.

Just bring your groceries (grocery store just 8 minutes away), fishing gear, and a football and you're all set. Everybody enjoyed the canoe, fishing, the hot tub, the rec house, and nature at its finest.

There was more than enough space, with plenty of blankets, towels, and all you need to cook and grill. There was even wood ready for us at the fire pit so we roasted marshmallows.

The younger kids enjoyed the pool but it was too cold for us older folk. We're Floridians and with the abnormally cold temps lately the water was still too cold for us. The little ones were in and out constantly though.

Rich also has a good selection of movies to watch.

What a beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my daughter's wedding in Gainesville. Richard is very prompt in responding and the booking was easy. The pictures cannot capture how beautiful this home and property are. We had everything we needed and more. Movies, games, albums, and of course the gameroom where many a game of ping pong occurred. The pool was clean and large. Everyone was in awe of this home. We will definitely stay here again at the next family gathering! Highly recommend this cabin!

The best relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely beautiful. We had such a wonderful and relaxing time. We plan to go back and bring our families. And were already talking about doing this once a year. I would definitely recommend this property to everyone. You really felt at home and comfortable with your surroundings. And if you're looking for someplace to just decompress this is the property for you. We were only there for a weekend or next trip back we plan to take a minimum of 4 to 5 days. It's a great place if you want to just go and get away from everything including your children, it's also a great place to take the children.

WOW! Private Pool, Recreation Room and Lake Access.

  • 5 of 5

The kids practically lived in the private screened pool and jacuzzi. The home had plenty of space and was extremely comfortable for our large family of 8. We will book it again.
