You can do as little as you want or as much as you want. Sit on the patio and enjoy a cup of coffee as you watch the deer cross the trail that is located in our backyard, sit around the large firepit in andirondack log chairs and make s'mores, or get on your shoes and hike the beautiful trails that are available in the resort.

Our cabin offers 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms with all linens and towels, a fully furnished stocked kitchen, 2 living areas and a nice large patio deck.

The newly remodeled bunkhouse sleeps an additional 10 people plus houses an amazing bonus game room and full sized bath. . Contact the owner if you are interested in booking the bunkhouse and game room...additional $100 per night. If you rent the cabin for a week, the bunkhouse/gameroom is included free of charge.

If you are looking for that perfect place to get away from it all in a beautiful rustic cabin that has all the comforts of home, this is the place. The Peace of the Pines cabin has everything you need and more including a relaxing HOT TUB! It also has a 50 inch television with cable in the main living area and additional televisions in Master bedroom and gameroom. WiFi is also provided at the cabin and bunkhouse.

The Holly Lake Ranch sits on over 3,500 acres of East Texas piney woods. The resort community is home to a sprawling PGA 18 hole golf courses that is considered one of the best in East Texas. Miniature golf, shuffle board, basketball, several tennis courts, playground, archery, 2 swimming pools, hot tubs, activity center with game room and grill, a restaurant within the resort (others outside), hiking trails, lakes for fishing, canoes, paddle & fishing boats for hourly rentals are just some of the things to do.

About Lenora Taylor

Although we live in the 'big city,' our roots are from East Texas where we grew up. We were blessed to be able to 'come back home' and find a place to enjoy with family and friends and 'escape' the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. We decided to share our blessing and make available our cabin and bunkhouse for others to enjoy. We hope that you enjoy our 'Peace of the Pines!'

What makes this cabin unique

The Peace of the Pines sits among five heavily wooded lots. Although situated in a community, it feels very private as you sit on the huge back deck and listen to and watch the animals and nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Love Holly Lake Ranch

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Holly Lake Ranch in a rental home. I have used vacation rental homes for years, and this cabin was the most clean and comfortable home we have ever stayed in. I was amazed how completely stocked with cookware and utensils this home was. Every item I needed was tucked away in a cabinet or drawer or the pantry. Would definitely recommend this cabin and would stay again, and probably will while we continue our house hunt. Thanks so much Lenora & Scott!

The home is lovely, the beds are comfortable, the showers are hot. Despite neighbors nearby, there is a sense of privacy to the property that adds to its charm. I can definitely recommend this property.

Just a couple of things though: The hot tub was not ready for us. It smelled and was green the evening we arrived. We spent the better part of our only full day there trying to get the chemicals right in the hot tub (with the help of texts from the owner). We were finally able to get into the tub by late evening. That was a bit frustrating. Also, the pots & frying pans in the kitchen have seen better days. So if you are planning on making a nice meal while you are there, bring your own pans.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking out your time to write a review. We appreciate it, and use what we learn to make our place even better. I'm sorry there was some confusion about the hot tub. I will take full responsibility for that. I was not aware of the fact that our housekeeper had just added chemicals to the hot tub before your arrival. The chlorine and bromide react and cause a faint greenish color until it has circulated for awhile. When you told me it was greenish, I had you add more chlorine which put the chemicals completely out of whack. I am so glad that we were finally able to remedy the problem together. Also, we were not aware that the pots and pans were well-loved. They were replaced immediately. Thank you again.

For our family celebration for 19 of us adults and children the experience was enjoyable, fun-filled

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nice. However, for three full days with that many people the refrigerator was way to small for our needs. Also the ice maker worked poorly so we had to purchase our ice. That was the only complaint we had. All else was in great order and sufficient. We enjoyed the games that were available and the swimming, pickle ball and volleyball too. I did feel that the $100/day fee for the game room was overpriced. Your housemaid was very cordial and friendly. She is to be highly commended. Thank you, Don & Gypsy Paulson Sr.

We had a wonderful time. It was a great place for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place for all ages. The swimming pool and putt putt golf were a hit as well as the paddle boats and hiking trails. The men enjoyed a good game of golf.
