About Terry Jordan

The Owner/Operator of Honey Creek Lodge is Terry Jordan, Award-Winning Piano Entertainer and Recording Artist.

Terry Jordan purchased this house in 2004

Why Terry Jordan chose Grand Lake of the Cherokees

Originally one of the Cabin Resorts that sprang up when Pensacola Dam created the Grand Lake O' the Cherokees in the early 1940's, the property had fallen into ruins by 1987 and left abandoned. Still, beyond the dilapidation, I could see potential and forgotten glory. A friend exclaimed, 'Are you crazy?!!...its a junkyard!'. I bought it anyway, and have enjoyed every year of renovation. FINALLY IT'S READY TO SHARE! Now everyone who sees the place is speechless - the beautiful 2-story Barnwood walls, real wood floors of Brazilian Mahogany and Native Oaks, towering ceiling heights and walls of windows, Balcony Library and spacious themed bedroom. With expansive views of Honey Creek, the nightlights view of the Bridge and cityscape is especially stunning. Beach your boat at the shoreline, play games down by the lakefront, walk to the middle of the bridge for a Sunset view, or snuggle up and chill out inside by the fireplace -- there's something for everyone at Honey Creek Lodge. Within walking distance are Marinas, Restaurants, Clubs, Dairy Queen, Walmart, and Motels. Considered the 'middle' of Grand Lake, its 30 minutes or less to anything North or South on Grand -- Shangri La Golf Course, Cherokee and Arrowhead Yacht Clubs, The Coves, Grand Lake Casino (there are 19 casinos within 30 miles of Grove!), Lendonwood Gardens, historic Cayuga Mission Church, Darrell Starbird's Hot Rod Museum.... the list of things to do and sights to see goes on and on!!! Grove is recognized as one of the Top Ten Best Places To Retire In America.

What makes this house unique

Small town feel, with all the conveniences of the city. Easy access via Will Rogers Turnpike or Cherokee Turnpike. Comfortable, accomodating, upscale home with unique lakeviews. Well-managed property with meticulous attenton to detail.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family vacation was perfect thanks to the hospitality of Terry and Scott! Your home is beautiful and our family could not have asked for anything more! Thank you for opening your home to the Alexander family! The basket that greeted us was a wonderful surprise and we took full advantage of the smores! We look forward to staying with you again!

Amazing house for our annual girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! Terry went all out to make out stay as enjoyable as possible. He had several fire pits stocked and smores waiting for us! The house had anything you could ever need inside and out. We lounged on the porch over looking the lake and watched as our group wandered around on the paddleboats. I would love to come back to stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in the Grove area.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here during the Thanksgiving holidays ,and they loved this house! It is large and spacious and beautifully decorated. It is close to town and just steps to Grand Lake. Terry made the entire stay so enjoyable with all the extras that make being away from home so special!

Exceeded Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property over the 2017 Memorial Day Weekend with my wife, two kids (ages 5 & 2) and my best friend's girlfriend and her two kids (ages 9 & 6). From the moment we pulled up to the property we knew we had selected the perfect spot. Lake front access, with two fire pits and extremely close to Grove! The rental had everything entailed in the description. The decor was amazing and felt very homey. House is 3 stories and the floor plan was perfectly laid in a way which was open and spacious but still masterfully efficient in maximizing each room's design. I will definitely be renting this property again in the future!

Absolutely loved the Honey Creek Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our week stay, in July immensely! We were welcomed into an absolutely beautiful home, with a welcoming cake and everything we could possibly need for the week. The home is just beautiful, with a relaxed and homey feel! The close proximity to Grove and easy access to the lake made our lake week effortless and convenient. Terry was very helpful from the start and continued to make sure we had everything we needed. I look forward to our next stay and could not say enough positive things about our experience!
