Relax and enjoy the beauty of Dale Hollow Lake from the beautiful Jolly Creek cabin. Jolly Creek is private and secluded so you don't have to worry about fighting the crowd when it comes to boating, fishing, swimming or just plain old relaxing. Jolly Creek is one of only two locations on the sprawling Dale Hollow lake with 600 plus miles of lake shoreline that you can walk to your very own water cove, simply captivating.

Searched a long time to find the perfect place on Dale Hollw lake.. I knew when as I was pulling up the driveway that Jolly creek was the place...My home away from home!!!
The Owner purchased this cabin in 2008
Dale Hollow is simply a beautiful lake with an abundance of wild life including the American Bald Eagle and Blue Heron. A vacation paridise for anyone wanting to get away from it all.
We rented this place for a relaxing July 4th getaway. We had six adults and one toddler. The screened in porch really made this house for us - we probably spent 90% of our time out there. The open kitchen/living/dining was equally as enjoyable - we grilled every night and really used that kitchen well (we love to cook on vacation).
The bedrooms were as described. I'd say that if we had had another adult couple with us, it would have felt a bit crowded. With three couples, we each had our own room and the toddler got his own room in the basement. That way, each couple had their own bathroom to themselves, which was pretty nice.
The walk down to the water really is a very short distance (maybe 3 minutes max) but the drive is pretty steep so it made more sense for us to just drive our car down there (not to mention all the stuff we lugged down to the water). The little cove is pretty simple so if you're looking for a fancy dock/swimming place, this may not be for you. But it was a great little slope into the water (perfect for our toddler to walk down and stick his feet in the water).
My ONLY complaint about this place is there is NO cell phone reception if you have AT&T and only spotty at best reception if you have Verizon. There is a home phone but it does not allow for any dialing out (?) and you have to use a calling card. This was frustrating because we bought a calling card and of course we couldn't figure out how to use it...so we were without any sort of phone for the entire week, unless we drove into town. But the owner did tell me all of this upfront so it wasn't a surprise. Overall, this place was great and we wouldn't hesistate coming back!
Had a beautiful stay at your lovely home. The Redbuds and dogwoods were blooming. The owls were out and the sounds of nature were awesome. Loved being so close to the water. Will definately be back....
This home was perfect for our group of 6 to fit comfortably (3 couples) . We each had our own bath and bedroom. We sat on the screened porch at night and enjoyed the solitude. The house was stocked with what we needed for a quick 3 day stay. It was nicely decorated and the indoor seating was comfortable. The two rockers on the front porch were nice.
I would not recommend pulling your boat to the house since it is down a steep one lane gravel road (we have a 23’ cuddy cabin boat). Additionally, we parked the boat trailor at the bottom of the driveway since the driveway too was very steep. There was no garage access for indoor parking but was covered parking under the deck. The cove is not on the property (as I had improperly assumed) and is shared (not “private”) with neighbors (who we found to be rather friendly) To get to the cove you go down the driveway and and around the bend; it’s a small little hike/walk (greater than 200’). You cannot see the water from the house (at least not when we were there --end of May).
We do love Dale Hollow Lake and find the waters to be calm, clean and warm in late May. We kept the boat at Sunset Marina for $15 a night, slips are issued on a first come first serve basis (so arrive early, no reservations are accepted) and the restarant there has very good food. All the local restaurants in town had great food and wonderful prices. We will be back to Dale Hollow Lake.
Thank you for sharing your lovely home! It was a relaxing and spacious place for our three families to meet for a reunion. The screened in porch is amazing - - we spent tons of time there. The private cove was a fantastic place for the kids to swim, raft & kayak and a perfect place to bring the boat up to trade riders without having to go back and forth to the marina. One creek up from our cove had a fun rope swing from a tree and a beautiful waterfall at the end of the cove. This place is even better than the pictures portray it - - we will definitely be back!
