A luxurious cabin in the woods
About Jean Brooks
Red Horse Lodge is a unique cabin in the woods. I already owned 31 undeveloped acres at Walton Plantation and when this original cottage went up for sale, I was quick to purchase it and get busy on renovations. We love the outdoors, love our dogs and love our horses. My kids enjoy the firepit and the dirt roads! We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Jean Brooks purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Jean Brooks chose DeFuniak Springs
This is a getaway in the woods for people who don't mind all the comes with country living. It is quiet, private and 2.5 miles on a dirt road. We think you will love our cabin in the woods.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin is in the woods, 2.5 miles in from the main road, on dirt roads. Walton Plantation is quiet and designed for outdoor and animal enthusiasts. The community is private, quiet and gated (not the fancy kind of gate). You will have to get out of your vehicle to unlock and lock the main gate. It can be inconvenient.

Sure hope we can come back!
Our guys loved this place. Sincere apologies for the late checkout - the fault is mine - I gave them the wrong check out date and I'm so sorry. I sure hope we can stay there again on future projects.
You are welcome back anytime! The house was left very nice so that helped!
Everything was great. Property manager (Jean) was AWESOME to deal with! But we probably won't use VRBO again, given the large fees for cleaning and "service" of using the site.
July 4th Holiday
This place is about an hours drive from the beach. This worked out great since it was a holiday week end and very crowded at the beach. We were able to drive down to the beach each day, but Retreat to the peace and quite of the ranch in the evening.
The only draw back was the loft did not cool off very well.
Peaceful and beautiful
Perfect place to get away from it all! We enjoyed are stay at this beautiful property
Best Honeymoon ever!
We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot for our honeymoon. This home and property was everything we dreamed of and more...and we didn't even have to leave FL! First of all the home is absolutely beautiful. The woodwork is just stunning. It has everything you could ever need in it. I mean, it really is very well thought out. Just bring food. It is very comfortable. Living room furniture reclines. So cozy! There is lots of natural light. However, the master bedroom stays nice and dark with the curtain on the door closed, which I loved because I had gone weeks without sleep during the last month of my wedding planning, and I needed to sleep in! Everything was very clean. There are toys, games and a great selection of DVD's. The master bedroom and the loft also have DVD players. Although you probably won't want to spend much time indoors. The property is so peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. We were there in spring, so the wasps and wood bees were a plenty (that's just FL), but they don't bother you if you don't bother them! My husband loved the cook pavilion and cooked up a storm out there on the Big Green Egg and spit. He loved that he could blue tooth his phone to the speakers to play music while out there. We watched the stars while swinging by the fire at night. We thought we'd hear lots of frogs and crickets, but it was nice and quiet. The bed swing on the front porch was dreamy. The common areas and dirt roads are very well maintained. This place truly is a hidden gem. If you are looking for a great outdoor experience, but still want a gorgeous home to slip into, then you have found it here! I really can't find the words to express the lovely time we had here. We cannot wait to go back! Jean, the owner, is very responsive, kind and accommodating. Thank you for the wonderful memories and the perfect honeymoon!
This cabin is a part of Walton Plantation, a 6500 acre plantation for equestrians, hunters and nature lovers. The location is remote, peaceful and a wonderful place to relax.
