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. .

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.

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

We had a lovely couple's double date weekend! Everything was perfect. We can't wait to come back this summer with our kids.

Had a great time

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time staying at this cabin with my family. the cabin is gorgeous the bunkhouse was perfect for all of the kids. The scenery was gorgeous, we seen deer all over the place and had raccoons walking up on the porch so the kids thought that was neat. The only complaint I have is that it was a little far away from all of the activities. I thought it would be within walking distance but we ended up having to drive the kids to do the activities. But overall we had a great time I would recommend it to anybody.

My youth group really enjoyed themselves. Plenty of room for them to spread out and have some fun and games between the house and the bunk house. Pool, courts and other activities were a little further than I thought. Not at walking distance with a bunch of youth kids and teens. Couldn't check in till close to 5 due to the house not being ready but other than that everything was absolutely perfect. We will defiantly be back again.

The summer months are busy and our check in time is at 4 in order to have the cabin cleaned and prepared for a stay especially when there is someone leaving at 11 that same day. Thank you for understanding this policy and we look forward to your return.
