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 Grove

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.

Great property, SUPERB hosts, best HomeAway experience yet!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a couples retreat (8 adults) in July 2018. From start to finish, it was everything we hoped for and more. The owners excel at hospitality and there were numerous gestures to make us feel welcome and special, including cake, a breakfast basket and a S'mores basket. The property is spacious, very clean and beautifully appointed. We loved that they offer a formal dining table (with linens and dishes/china) to seat eight, and we used it for every dinner during our three-night stay. We enjoyed having a pool table and darts board for games. And I don't usually say this, but the beds were super comfortable (I'm picky about beds). The kitchen and pantry are the best stocked I've ever experienced -- every pantry staple and kitchen item we need was easily found. We like to cook a lot on our retreats and it's always disappointing when the kitchens are not well stocked. The layout of the house was especially nice and there was a lot of common area. And, finally, we were close to EVERYTHING, so the location is super handy. This is our fourth HomeAway property we've rented and it puts all the others to shame. You can't go wrong with this home.

The accommodations were superb. Loved all the details from the owners that helped us not only enjoy their home but also Grove and the surrounding area. All guests loved the spacious living area and quiet lovely setting. We'll be back!
