Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Hawthorne - Log House on Lake Jeffords

3 bedrooms and sofa bed, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10

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.

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 Florida North Central Gulf Coast

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.

This was an amazing place to stay. It was clean, comfortable and had so many amenities. We loved it

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic stay

  • 4 of 5

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 family vacation

  • 5 of 5

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.
