About the property

Bring the Clubs, the Kids and the Boat (or nothing at all)

Come enjoy this 2100 sq. ft. guest house on the lake at beautiful Holly Lake Ranch just north of Tyler in the rolling hills and forests of East Texas. All fully furnished to make your stay relaxing. You can enjoy the lake view from the rocking chairs on the full length back porch; bring your boat for all the fun of the lake. The clubhouse for the 18 hole golf course is only a block away. Fishing is great on the two private lakes as well.

Something for everyone!! Plan a visit to First Monday in Canton or visit Gladewater the Antique Capital of East Texas only 25 miles away. We are located in the heart of the Piney Woods Wine Trail with several wineries only a short drive away. It is only 30 miles to Tyler (45 min to Longview) for shopping, dining, movies, etc. An enormous variety of birds are on the property year round or migrate through. You might even see one of our magnificent bald eagles soaring over the lake or golf course!

If you need some down time, relax in a rocker on the back porch and gaze at our peaceful lake, beautiful sunrises and spectacular sunsets. Come and visit us and we are sure to see you again next year in our part of beautiful East Texas.

FISHERMEN – Crappie and bass fishing off the dock has been excellent! (we will show you our Crappie "house" just off the dock)

GOLFERS – The new pro and his staff are constantly working to make the course better and better. The improvements are noticeable making for a fun and challenging round of golf.

BOAT RENTAL for a fun day on the water is finally a possibility on Lake Greenbriar. Inquire if you are interested and we can send you rates and details.

Beautiful Guest Home with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege of staying in the Dossey's guest home while visiting family at Holly Lake Ranch. I cannot say enough not only about the gorgeous house and hospitality that the Dossey's showed, but the views of the lake were absolutely gorgeous! This truly was a little piece of heaven tucked away in East Texas. There are few vacations where I can truly get into relaxation mode completely, but this location and hospitality allowed me to do so instantly! We had a great time swimming in the lake which was feet from our back door, fishing off the dock (and catching some LARGE fish at that) as well as the boat ride during sun set. I would highly recommend this cute, quiet and relaxing guest home to anyone who is looking to get away! We miss it already!

Owner's Response: We love to share our little piece of heaven with guests! And, as so many have said, "who would imagine a place so peaceful and beautiful so close to the DFW metroplex?" It seems our little secret is getting out!

Great house and a great host!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a few nights here to check out the Holly Lake Ranch area and couldn't have been happier. Holly Lake Ranch has a variety of activities to offer and the lake house was the perfect place to hang out. We caught a few bass off of the dock and spent the nights sitting on the porch. Dennis is also one of the best hosts I have had, every question asked was answered promptly and with detail.

Owner's Response: We are really glad you enjoyed our community as much as we enjoy it! There really IS something for everyone. Also glad to hear you were catching bass right off the dock. You know it is a pretty good bet when you see the fishermen in the bass boats cruising right up near the dock you are standing on to fish. Come back to see us. We will leave the light on for you!
