About Jean Brooks
I love living in this area! We have a horse farm and have enjoyed getting involved in a small community with small town values. I am busy rehabbing houses in the area and saw a need for nice short term accommodations for folks that are in the area for a short period of time. We pride ourselves on a very clean home, great furnishings and good communities. We think you will love Paxton! It is so close to the beaches of 30A and just around the corner from antique shopping in Florala and Lake Jackson. You can truly have the best of all worlds in our area. Why wait in line and struggle through traffic?
Jean Brooks purchased this House in 2015

Paxton is a great community; safe, quiet and friendly. We think this is the best of our whole area................you can antique shop, eat great country style meals, tube and canoe, relax and cook out at Lake Jackson and head to the beach when you are ready for a little excitement. The best part? You don't have to spend all of your hard earned money for great accommodations! Stay in a very family friendly house that is well done and clean............and have money left over to truly explore our area. Come stay with us! We think you will keep coming back.

The home was just what we needed. The house was very clean and comfortable.
Our stay at the home was great. Jean was very quick to answer any questions we had about the home. The house was decorated very nice. The beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were stocked with nice towels and very clean. The kitchen was amply filled with the necessities. Our only complaint was the lawn had not been mowed but we understand that nature doesn’t always cooperate. (Rainy days). We highly recommend this home if you are going to stay in this area. We hope to stay again if all the cousins come at the same time.
The perfect home when away from home!
This 3 bedroom 2 bath home has an amazing open floor which makes this home very open with lots of space to move in, it is immaculately clean, comfortable, and beatifully decorated home, it has every essential need when traveling away from home.
The beds are so comfortable and the hot water stays hot!
My 18 year old daughter wanted me to add, "We have been traveling for 2 months". "This is the best home we have stayed at" "The only thing missing was a plunger, but don't worry about that, we got one and left it there." "Though it never was needed. Lol "
Another remarkable thing about this property is in the large fenced in back yard. There it stands, breath taking in its large grandeur, huge in its trunk that has caused it to stand for over 100 years. The name we gave it was "Faithful Oak" When looking from Google Earth it appears as if it is a monument for this town. I belive this represents the loving and caring people of Paxton, FL.
We traveled to the beaches multiple times. This location is perfect for getting the cheapest gas prices as the beatiful town of Florala, Alabama is a mile down the road, the gas prices are 25 cents cheaper and this was a blessing for us.
Some other family favorites as we have many is the park in Crestview with the lake. Then in Defuniak Springs there is a park by the Walton High school called We Care, the children love the water park there, it has everything but a lake. If a lake is something you love, there is a perfectly round lake in Defuniak Springs. There every Saturday morning, many people travle here and gather to hear the scripture read and then have a time of worship with praise. This area is very unique looking and you will just have to come and see it to understand. I saw a large Bald Eagle and it flew to a tree very close to where we were standing. I have never been so close to one ever in my life. That experience with stay with me as a gift from God. Don't forget to go to Ponce de Leon Springs State Park. We loved this place too. Some may say that there isn't anything here, however our family has found this place to be where we want to stay for everything we could ever want is here.
You will be blessed in so many many ways, while staying at "Faithful Oak Home". *Remember this is the name we gave it.
Paxton is a great small community near Lake Jackson in Florala, Alabama and an hours drive to the beaches of South Walton.

You can also tube and canoe at Blackwater State park and golf near by at Blackstone public golf course about 15 miles from the house.
