Jordan Lake house description

This unique property is located on the southeast side of Jordan Lake with a public boat launch just .4 miles down the road and a public beach 3 miles away. Although we are not waterfront (There are no homes waterfront on Jordan Lake)It is the only vacation rental property available this close to Jordan Lake.

The property resides on 5 beautiful acres of open fields and wooded land, with a one acre fishing pond, The three bedroom rental home, and a renovated cabin built in 1908 with a barn and outbuildings.

The rental property consists of a new 2200 square foot addition built in 2008 which is connected to the cabin by a roofed open breezeway. The owners live in the cabin and the new addition serves as the vacation rental with its own private entrances.

The property still retains its nostalgic country feeling with its ancient oaks, maples and pines, and the original four room, tongue and groove southern pine interior cabin.

The vacation rental has two bedrooms upstairs with queen size beds - each with its own privately connected, tiled bathroom with vanity sinks. The two baths upstairs have whirlpool tubs/showers.

Outside the two rooms upstairs is a coffee bar with a small refrigerator to hold your favorite beverages, and a laundry room with a Maytag washer and dryer for your convenience.

Downstairs is a large great room with 12 foot ceilings and crown molding with lights. This is the living room with a small antique table with four chairs for cards or games, a couch and chair, and one full size futon. The great room also has a bar with four bar chairs and an HD flat screen TV with a built in DVD player and Dish Network satellite TV.

Also downstairs off the great room is a third bedroom with a queen size bed a private bath with a full width step in shower with seating areas and hand rails for support.

The great room can sleep two on a full-size futon and has separate interior and exterior entrances. It also has a small 4 person farm table if you would like to eat dinner while watching TV.

You can also enjoy our fully equipped gourmet kitchen downstairs which is adjacent to the dining room and has the following amenities:

• Gas range with 5 burners, a non-stick griddle, full sized gas oven and lower electric oven
• Microwave/convection oven with vented hood
• Toaster oven
• Coffee maker
• Calphalon/All Clad cookware
• Double kitchen sink with waste disposal
• Prep/vegetable sink
• Silverware, dishes, serving ware, cooking/grilling supplies, etc.
We can also arrange catering and rental services for up to 100 additional guests for weddings etc. Please ask for details.

Outside of the kitchen is a large 16’ x 44’ concrete patio with lounge chairs, picnic tables and a gas grill large enough for a family BBQ. A gas smokers is also available.

The property is located on 5 beautifully landscaped acres with a “pick your own” herb garden right outside the kitchen and a large produce garden from which we can provide you with succulent tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, squash, and other seasonal produce.

Local hiking trails and state campgrounds are a few miles down the road and shopping centers and a theatre are located about 15 minutes east. A local grocery store and meat market are nearby as well as a Super Walmart and Target within a 20 minutes drive.

Onsite recreation includes horseshoes, fishing for bass, catfish, sunfish, etc. in our pond (catch and release), cycling, basketball, or just swinging in the hammock.

This is a very peaceful location with great views from everywhere, plenty of stars in the sky at night and a rustic fire pit to gather around at the end of the evening. (Don't forget to bring the S'Mores!)

All of the adjacent properties are located on between 5 and 8 acres so there is plenty privacy and space between homes and lots of fresh air.

We also have ample parking for power boats, fishing boats, campers and RV's so bring them along so you can enjoy one of the most beautiful non-residential 14,000 acre lake in central NC.

Available year round, check our online calendar for openings.

We look forward to hosting you and your loved ones! - Bill and Lisa

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: We both share a love for good food and cooking, boating, nature, gardening and music. We enjoy meeting people and sharing what we have with others. We've been dubbed the 'host and hostess with the mostest' and hope to continue to please our guests. We've always had a knack for making anyone feel at home and welcome in our presence, no matter whether we've known them for 5 minutes or 5 years. Let us make you feel at home and enjoy the riches we have been blessed with to share with others. Look forward to seeing you soon! All the best! Bill & Lisa

          Why the Owner Chose Jordan Lake:
          We purchased our property at Jordan Lake as a future home with the potential to be a vacation property for people like us who enjoy the country for the freedom and peacefulness it has to offer at the end of a hard day's work. We also appreciate the convenience to Jordan Lake as we are avid boaters ourselves. We know that you will enjoy what we have to offer as much as we get to enjoy it every evening.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          One of the most unique things about our place is the blend of old and new on the property itself. We enjoy the serenity and calm out here in the country, but still like to have the convenience to each of the Triangle's nearby cities and all they have to offer from shopping to recreation to entertainment. You can lose track of time so easily while you sit and watch the herons fly into the pond, listen to the tree frogs, and just gaze at the water while being only minutes from the city. The fresh air and stars at night are second to none.
