A June 2004 trip
to Holly Lake by kimmiekim
Quote: This was a relaxation trip for my family. The community is situated almost equally in distance between Dallas to the west and Shreveport, LA to the east.
Our cabin was a two-bedroom/1.7 bath with full kitchen and one television. One and seven-tenths bath means whirlpool tub in the master and a shower in the second bedroom. There is not washer/dryer in the unit, but a nice laundry mat, which cost a $1 for each to use.
Being deep in the woods, at night I can hear all kinds of noises, but it wasn't hard to fall into a deep sleep. I had an encounter with Texas Wood Ants drilling a hole in my bedroom, but maintenance came out right away late at night and sprayed. Surely, they were coming in to stay dry because during the week I was there it rained almost everyday. Some units didn't even have cable, because of a tornado that hit the area a few days earlier. VCRs and movies are available to rent from the recreation center if your unit doesn't have one. The recreation center had planned activities throughout the day and had a snack bar.
There was a very nice swimming pool near us and another one near the Country Store and lake. Watch out for the ducks, because they roam free in the road. My daughter even got a picture of them sitting in the road. One even laid an egg! I'll upload it as soon, as I get the chance. There was also a miniature golf course, basketball court, archery, and horseback riding available.
