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.
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.
Perfect house to spend time at. Right on the lake with many items there for us to enjoy. Although we were there for our daughter's wedding and did not get an opportunity to fully enjoy the house, it is a great place to stay if you find yourself near the Gainesville area.
We stayed for 2 days in April and had a great time. It had something for everyone from hot tub to heated pool, rec house, fishing and biking, we enjoyed every minute of it. The one thing that was disappointing though was that while the cabin is technically lakefront, through a 70 yard of boardwalk, it does not have a lake view. Other than that, everything was good.
On a side note, I had a recent injury and needed to use a wheelchair. The house is not wheelchair accessible in anyway, so something to keep in mind if that is a requirement for someone in your group.
Lots of amenities all to yourself!!
We just left after an amazing vacation with our children. We found the accommodations clean and welcoming. Even though there were a total of ten of us for the last four days we never felt crowded. The youngest (7&8) loved playing in the pool while the older ones (up to 25yo) fished, enjoyed the hot tub, foosball and making cool drinks for mom with the blender. We ate in all but one night and had everything we needed for a variety of meals. If I had one complaint it would be not enough towels provided to cover pool and shower use, however the washer was right there and we just washed them as needed. Thanks for an incredibly memorable family vacation!
Wow dont even know where to start complimenting about this place.Very impressed with this home.The home was very clean had no complaints. Everything that Rich describes about the home was accurate and the pictures as well. The layout was perfect for our group with plenty of extra room to roam around. Equipped with anything you needed plus extras we wasn't expecting. The quiet spacious private yard area was wonderful, lush, peaceful and beautiful. Rich had the fire pit ready to go. ( which was very sweet of him ) we just never got around to using it. So much to do and see in the area and surrounding area. St. Augustine beach was very close along with seaworld, Disney, plenty to do just at the place. The pool, DVDS, game room was really nice. only used it once, but was a very nice addition. The home is decorated with very creative art, which we really enjoyed. I'm sure there was something we missed. Art was everywhere and unique. Wow the walkway to the pier and gazebo was relaxing, just so calming and gorgeous. the water surrounding was calm and clean. caught some fish as well, theres a nice tree lying near the dock in the water we would cast to and caught fish from. Not to even mention the canoes. The lake was a perfect size to canoe around in and explore. The pool was used many times, everyone had a blast. There was some pool toys already there, plenty of room around the pool area and lots of seating. At night the Jacuzzi was fabulous. There was even a grill. I mean wow!!!! I didn't want to leave. Just a fabulous place all around. I knew when we pulled into the driveway it was like being home. We have rented through Homeaway several times and have never ever met the owner/owners. So it was a nice surprise to meet Rich. Such a pleasant and great fellow. :) I even had to make a couple of calls and he was there to answer them. We will definitely be returning. I highly recommend this home, especially for those who have family nearby, kids in college. I could go on and on about this home. Thank you so much Rich for letting have the opportunity to stay at your lovely home.
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.
