About the property

Bring the Clubs, The Kids and the Boat (Or Nothing At All)

LOW SEASON RATES ARE CURRENTLY IN EFFECT. IF YOUR SCHEDULE IS FLEXIBLE BE SURE AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EVEN LOWER SUNDAY - WED RATES FOR EXTENDING YOUR STAY OR A LOWER COST GET-AWAY.

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. Visit the Tiger Creek Wildlife Refuge to see the white tigers. Only 30 miles from Tyler for shopping, dining, movies and the well known Caldwell Zoo. An enormous variety of birds are on the property year round or migrate through. You might even see one of our magnificent eagles soaring over the lake or golf course!

Nothing calms you like relaxing in a rocker on the back porch and gazing at our peaceful lake. Come and visit us this year and we are sure to see you again next year in our part of beautiful East Texas.

FISHERMEN – Several BIG bass (over 6#) were taken in early June this year. Water temperatures are rising and fishing has become a little more difficult as bass move deeper. Best bet is early morning and evening.

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 and 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.

We invite you visit and join our FB group -- Dossey's Guesthouse at Holly Lake Ranch.

About Dennis Dossey

Dennis (pictured) and Melanie Dossey retired to the beautiful Holly Lake Ranch community in the Spring of 2015. We look forward to sharing the community and amenities we have come to love with you. You may be looking for some property of your own!

Dennis Dossey purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Dennis Dossey chose East Texas

One visit to Holly Lake Ranch, meeting its people, taking in its beauty and we were sold. The community has so much to offer from a busy activity schedule -- golf, tennis, fishing, water skiing, tubing, etc. -- as much or as little as you want to do.

What makes this cottage unique

The Holly Lake Ranch community has it all for the whole family -- boating, fishing, golf, swimming, activities for the kids - free miniature golf, basketball court, shuffleboard, tennis - you name it. All within walking distance or a couple minutes drive.

Peaceful Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our much needed girls' weekend! Such a beautiful location and the hosts were wonderful!

The property was perfect for visiting outside and inside! We loved the view of the lake and the trees! The changing colors and ripples and waves were so relaxing. The weather was perfect! On our few excursions off the property we found the surrounding area peaceful and beautiful.

There's nothing like fall in the East Texas Piney woods! We look forward to returning!

Lake Family Time

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful guesthouse on the lake! We had a great time getting together with family and the house was very comfortable. It is so peaceful to sit on the porch looking over the lake and we did not want to leave. Dennis was so helpful and friendly with anything that was needed. We look forward to returning for a visit in the future! Pam B.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found this to be a comfortable drive for family coming from so many directions. You certainly know how to pick your dates -- with cooler Fall temps on the lake being such a welcome relief from the heat of the Summer. We think Holly Lake Ranch in the Fall is the best kept secret around!
