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.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE LOWER SUNDAY - WED RATES FOR EXTENDING YOUR STAY OR A LOWER COST GET-AWAY (MOST STAYS).

Why Dennis Dossey chose Holly Lake Ranch

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.

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!

WONDERFUL for our family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The Dossey Guesthouse was a wonderful choice for our family vacation. The house was great and sitting in the rocking chairs viewing the beautiful lake was as serene and relaxing as it gets!! Dennis and Melanie Dossey were very welcoming and easy to work with. Thank you for sharing your home with our family of 4 generations!

Will definitely book again!

  • 5 of 5

My group loves this property! We do get-aways twice a year and this is by far our favorite place to stay. The Dossey's are so kind and helpful and it's just a beautiful, relaxing place. Thanks Dennis and Melanie!

Owner's Response: Thanks again for your visit! (And again and again since this is your third visit.) We are so glad you find our place to be just what we intended with something for everyone regardless of activity level. Play games, curl up with a book, tell ghost stories with the kids and grandkids at night on the porch. Go for the big bass or ride your jet ski to your heart's content. Eat in, cook out, visit a nearby winery or local restaurant. We will keep the light on 'til next time!
