A Relaxing Getaway...With Plenty to Offer
We are located in historic Florala, Alabama, adjacent to the Florida state line. In fact, you can see Florida from our back porch! We offer the perfect blend of lakeside retreat and close proximity to the gorgeous white beaches on Fort Walton Beach and Destin, Florida.
Downtown Florala is a short 5-minute walk from our estate. We delightfully recommend The Crafty Bean for your morning latte and craft supplies, lunch at The Depot or the Ranch House Kitchen. Shop antiques at Jackson's Corner, The Warehouse Market, 5th Ave Flea Market, and the historic Florala Pharmacy gift shop. End a fun afternoon walking around our quaint downtown with dinner and margaritas at Monterrey's Mexican Cuisine.
Walk straight down our steps and along the shores of Lake Jackson and enjoy city parks, eat breakfast at overlooking the water, or walk along the pier at Florala City Wetland Park.
