Come enjoy 'Old Florida'; sprawling live oak trees, smell the flowers and listen to the birds and insects while you stroll the 300 ft. wooden walkway lined with banana trees and tropical plants on your way to the lake. This log home with interesting art work from around the world, and with screened-in, heated pool is a vacation into itself. But from this central location consider this: Atlantic coast - 1 hr; Gulf Coast - 1 1/2 hrs, Disney - 2 hrs, and U of FLA - 15 miles. Within 20 miles there's 10 lakes, rivers, streams, crystal clear springs for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. Experience the diversity!
Screened in Pool Room for Family Gatherings: Enjoy the outdoors without the bugs. There's access to the pool room directly from double doors from the kitchen. Sit around with ample seating, and enjoy a cool drink. Come and enjoy a natural Florida. Also, enjoy a the Hot Tub in the screened in room.
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.
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.
Our son graduated from UF and we wanted a place to celebrate with family and friends. This is the perfect place! The home was ideal with everything you would need. We swam in the pool and ate outside in the covered area. We enjoyed playing fos-ball and darts in the game-room. One evening we got into the spa and it was so relaxing. But, for all of us, we totally enjoyed spending time out on the dock, fishing, canoeing and watching the wildlife. It was close to the so many places that we actually were able to do multiple trips to other areas in and around Gainesville. We all had such a wonderful time that we didn't want to leave. Thank you Rich for sharing your home so we can treasure this memorable experience, we loved it!
was very pleased with the home, privacy of home was an outstanding benefit, everything was as advertised, pool and recreation house was great benefit.
Lake, dock and kayaks were a definite plus. house had everything necessary for home cooked meals.. convience of grocery store for forgotten items.
was great. will definitely recommend. property was clean
Amazing property. It was great to take our kids there, 16 years after we first visited as a couple. Family loved driving up and visiting for the day - from Ocala and Miami. Fishing was amazing, lots of catfish and bream. Kids loved the pool, rec room and fishing and say, "Stay here if you want to have fun!"
Perfect vacation get away. We loved it. The cabin has so many amazing personal touches. From the decor all the way to kitchen utensils and equipment and noodles for the pool. We had not one problem or complaint. Wifi is a little touchy, but we were there to escape, relax, and do absolutely nothing. And this was the perfect place to do all of the above. We will return for sure.
With 2 active young boys (8 and 9 years old), we wanted a property that was a great get-away, but one that would help the boys keep busy. We were not disappointed! We spent an entire weekend with no electronics, other than cuddling up one night to watch Star Wars from the video library.
We canoed, swam in the pool, made Smore's over the fire, and spent many hours playing games in the yard. The rec room is an absolute MUST, as we had a great weekend long ping pong tournament. It was also a great layout in that the children could have their own space, but not be too far away.
The cabin is well stocked and we didn't want or need for anything. It has all the conveniences with the country charm of 'escaping city life'.
It was very clean and the owner was very communicative throughout the booking and answered all our questions.
This is a wonderful cabin for couples and/or families. Highly recommended.
Only 2 hours drive from Tampa.
Outdoor lovers----come and enjoy. Just sit by the lake, and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. Or---enjoy the heated, screened in pool and Hot Tub.
