Launching from Holly Creek will put you in the middle of the lake, where you can reach any spot with ease.

Dale Hollow Lake, has over 625 miles of natural shoreline and beautifully clear water. Dale Hollow Lake is perfect for boating, wake boarding, jet skiing, diving, and fishing. It's a prime location for smallmouth bass fishing, currently holding the world record for the largest smallmouth bass!

If you enjoy horseback riding or hiking, don't miss the Red Oak Ridge Horse Riding / Hiking Trail that is less than 3 miles away from our cabin. (You will drive pass Red Oak Ridge Road on the way to the cabin.) The cool, wooded riding area offers 18 miles of beautiful and scenic trails developed for horseback riding or hiking. Beginning on wooded ridge top, riders can descend to follow the Dale Hollow Lake shoreline. Seven loops provide for cutbacks to shorten or lengthen the trail, and the Eagles Bluff Overlook provides one of the most spectacular vistas of Dale Hollow Lake.

We are less than a mile from the Holly Creek Marina. Many of our guest have parked their trucks and boats in our drive, but please check out the photos to determine if it's right for your parking. Call me if you need alternate parking.

Additionally there are 4 marinas within 5 miles of our cabin. You may rent a boat or jet skis, or launch your own boat. Please call the marinas ahead to ensure you will be able to rent what you prefer.

Holly Creek Marina is less than 1 mile away.

Hendricks Creek Resort is approximately 4 miles away.

Cedar Hill Resort is less than 5 miles away.

Dale Hollow Marina is around 5.5 miles away.

About Vicki Sewell

My roots are deep in Tennessee. I was born a little more than a mile from this cabin, and members of my family have lived in the area for over a 100 years. As a child, I spent all my summers at my grandparents' home nearby hoping that one day I would own my own 'Pea Ridge' piece of dirt!

While we currently live outside Atlanta, my husband and I bought the cabin in hopes that our children and friends will gather there with us for years to come.

Now we are opening it up to you, so that you can have the same 'state of mind' we enjoy each and every time we come home to Tennessee.

Vicki Sewell purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Vicki Sewell chose Celina

When you arrive at the cabin, the stress of the 'outside world' will evaporate. It's a place where you can ask a stranger for help or directions and they will not hesitate. Most people in the area still like to visit to sit and 'talk a spell.' Once you experience Dale Hollow, you will most likely be back.

What makes this cabin unique

Location, Location, Location! When launching at Holly Creek Marina, you will be in the center of fabulous Dale Hollow Lake. From there you have access to any part of the lake quickly.

Additionally, you may hear wild turkey calling from deep in the woods while having your morning coffee on the back porch. Just having a respite from the hectic work schedule will make all the great difference toward a well balanced life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank u for everything you did for us last week, we really appreciated it. Despite the bad luck turkey hunting we did in fact have fun and enjoyed your place. Its very nice. We plan on watching the weather closer next year, and returning for revenge on the wild turkey!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Nice, extra clean house in a great location to Holly Creek Marina. Was very comfortable and loved the fish theme throughout. Vicki answered my questions quickly and accommodated an early check in request. The driveway is steep and angled to the road but we had no problem getting in and out with our Silverado Dually and Ranger 521L, it just took a few extra turns of the wheel. This was our first time using VRBO and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Big Fish rental or the VRBO service.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate you addressing the driveway, for so many of our guests ask us that question prior to visiting the Big Fish. We welcome your return! Regards, Vicki

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the cleanest cabins I have stayed in and well prepared for a comfortable stay. There were some games, movies, magazines and books provided as well, which was also nice. The immediate area is perfect to go boating or fishing. I have T-mobile service and had no signal or GPS anywhere around these little towns. I would bring an old fashioned map just in case.

Enjoy the spectacular views around the Dale Hollow Lake, where the reigning champion of the largest, small-mouth bass was caught! We are less than 1 mile from Holly Creek Marina on Dale Hollow in a picturesque area called Pea Ridge near Celina, TN. Known for it's quaint shops and friendly people. We are just minutes from golfing and a host of other outdoor activities including the state's Red Oak Ridge riding and hiking trails.
