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 Hawthorne

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.

A great place to get away for the city and chill.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit we love it. We added an extra day this time and it still did not feel like enough time. We got to take advantage of the lake this time the water was like glass. A must do is to go out to the end of the dock and look at the stars there were so many. You just don't get to see that in the city. Make sure you have bug spray if you do go out at night. The game house is fun and pool and hot tub are just right. So if you want a little peace and quite and just to chill this is the place for you. We went with some of our extended family and had plenty of room. This has become our get away place.

Our group of 8 adults truly enjoyed our cabin visit. Your home was a wonderful place to get away, un-wind and spend time together.

First of all, the place was spotless, so amazingly clean! Plenty of room for all of us, nice beds , well equipped kitchen, pool and jacuzzi!! we got the game room and it was a nice addition. the lake is so peaceful and beautiful!! we saw a bald eagle who also was enjoying the surroundings. Great place to stay, highly recommend

Quiet and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Each year for my birthday, I like to rent a place on or near the water to bring my kids and grand kids. They loved the pool, the game room and the dock. I wasn't sure about how safe it was to swim in the lake, but they were brave and jumped right in. They spent most of their time in the game room and pool, and the little guys fished off the dock and out of the canoes. Due to our schedules, we weren't able to get to our destination until almost 11 pm , but once there, the grand kids had to check everything out. The surroundings are very peaceful, with a lot of vegetation. The board walk going out to the dock is approx. 200 steps from the back of the pool. There is plenty of parking and privacy. Rich was prompt in sending the refund for the deposit. Thank you, Rich, for sharing your home.
