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 Gainesville

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.

Wonderful locale for a family reunion!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent 8 nights here with our 2 sons and their families. Between the pool, the spa, the dock and the game room there was plenty for all of us to do. We only left the cabin twice; once for dinner at Blue Water Bay in Melrose and the other for a girls' day out in Gainesville. The rest of the time we hibernated here. Everyone from the 5 year old and 3 teenage grandchildren, their parents, and these grandparents had a great relaxing time.

The record collection was fun to look through and we actually played a couple LP's. The DVD and video selections were fantastic and the book collection was equally good.

Our recommendation for groceries would to buy everything you need before you arrive and avoid the local grocery store, they are expensive. We hit Dollar Tree for inexpensive pool toys and other kids' distractions.

We loved the sunsets and have multiple days of pictures. Sunrise on our last morning also provided several good photos. The dock pavilion is wonderful and would be great for a rain shower or maybe even an outdoor sleepover. Do be aware that this is Florida and there are snakes. We saw three different ones, but they were all harmless.

Rich is a great host and responds quickly to any need. A tree fell across the board walk one afternoon and he had a crew out early the next morning to clear the way.

I asked our teens if they were bored with their week with their grandparents and they kindly and enthusiastically responded "No". Neither were their parents. Good Lord willing, this clan hopes to return.

This retreat is so relaxing! We had too many family commitments in town to enjoy all it's amenities. We loved the pool and large shaded front porch. The secluded lake was beautiful and a great place to fish. The kids enjoyed the game room and we had room to spread out. We found everything clean, comfortable, very accommodating, and the owner always returned calls promptly. We will be back and stay longer!

Awesome Experience!!

  • 5 out of 5
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!

Great family retreat!

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Great escape!

  • 5 out of 5
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
