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.

Our Florida log cabin delight

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! We enjoyed an evening fire and the hot

tub felt so good especially since it has been so cool outside.

We love the very soothing environment from the open land

to the lake. Very quiet and homey. It was very comfortable and it was nice to save money by doing our own cooking.

The Kitchen had everything we needed. The neighbors

we're very nice to get to know and the cleaning part was

was very easy to take care of.

Rich was very helpful in answering any questions we had

and was genuinely a nice guy. Thanks Rich for sharing

your home with us. Mare, Mike and Karen

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.

Log Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay here. We canoed several times around the lake and used the hot tub nightly. The pool was a bit cool for us but the hot tub was fine. The house is very comfortable, with everything you need.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lakefront cabin over the weekend in January. From the moment you get there until we left we had a wonderful time. everything was as expected. If you want to get away from it all this is the place to be. Will rent again next time were in the area.
