About Allen/Rhonda Sanders

Allen and Rhonda Sanders love living in East Texas. Married for 41 years with 2 incredible daughters and 5 grandkids, we're still crazy in love with each other and love to see families slow down and reconnect with each other and sometimes that means getting out of town and getting away from it all. Technically, we're 'retired', but stay busy with our 3 vacation rentals - but it really is a labor of love. We love opening our hearts and homes to folks who need to just need to chill for a while. In her spare time, Rhonda enjoys all kinds of crafts, quilting and almost anything creative. Allen enjoys fishing and riding his Harley. They are both very active in leadership in their local church.

Allen/Rhonda Sanders purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Allen/Rhonda Sanders chose Holly Lake Ranch

We actually bought this home for our daughter and her 3 children, who recently moved away to Colorado. We loved the house so decided to make it a vacation rental.

The Comforts of Home - Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Holly Lake Retreat was fantastic! My parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and many of us had to travel from out of state to the ceremony. The house was perfect for two of the families to stay. With four bedrooms and tons of beds, it was easy for the 13 of us to find a place to crash. And with 3 bathrooms and showers, we didn't have to wait in line.

The spacious living room allowed us to spread out and relax in front of the wood stove and watch TV or talk the night away.

The pool table was an instant hit with the kids as they practiced their shooting ability (or lack thereof) at all hours of the day and night. And with the wifi, they were able to get their daily dose of internet and keep them out of the adults' hair.

The well-equipped kitchen was excellent for cooking regular meals or just popping snacks into the microwave. And the outdoor grill helped to provide some variety in the cooking. We were able to save money on food, but still enjoy home cooking.

The biggest complaint - that we had to leave. After staying several days, the kids would have definitely called that place home if we gave them the chance.

I would definitely recommend this home for anyone who is planning on staying in the Hawkins area for a few days. But, be sure to stay for a while and enjoy the place. Otherwise you'd be missing out.

Thanks again Allen and Rhonda for opening your place to us. We hope to be back there again soon!

Regards,
Richard Munoz

Great house

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Holly Lake Ranch. The house was wonderful. It fit our large family gathering. The bedrooms were all upstairs, which made it nice when it was bedtime for the kids. The downstairs was the living space with the gameroom/living room area, dinning room, kitchen, and a full bathroom. We stayed for a long weekend and there was plenty to do: swimming, boating, fishing, putt putt golf, hiking, etc. The pool was a short hike from the house, so we were able to walk there. The owner, Allen, was super nice and helpful. He answered all of our questions ahead of time and was easily reachable during our stay. The description and pictures are accurate, although the daybed was downstairs during our stay, which was great for us. The property was clean and maintained. We had a great stay.

Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house, the view and the fact it was not that far inside Holly Lake was wonderful for my out of town family. We rented a golf cart and enjoyed all that Holly Lake had to offer. The house was very spacious and met all of our needs. We will definately be doing this again. The listing was exactly as it was described. Very clean and the music when we arrived was very calming. My family came from California, Alabama, Florida and Georgia and they all enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere of this property and the location!

My wife and I had all our children and grandchildren there for the weekend. Everyone had something to do which they enjoyed individually and as a group (grandchildren ranged in age from 2 to 13 (with two expectant mothers). The adults had a great time playing games at the house and less than a mile away was the lake (fishing, paddle boats), a walking trail, plenty of activities; i.e., miniature golf, basketball, volleyball, horseshoes, and a variety of gym activities which all ages enjoyed. The individual running the shop at the boat dock was very helpful and friendly. Found out he and I were both from West Virginia. And all the accessory items were free. The house was well furnished, plenty of towels, etc. and the kitchen had everything needed, along with good instructions on what to do and not do. Received excellent instructions prior to our arrival also. The security was very good. I liked the "old time" wooden doors in the house and the women raved about the decorations. The "game room", pool & ping pong tables were a big hit and got a lot of use. All the rooms were large, with very comfortable beds, The bunk beds were a nice touch also. The upper decked, accessed via two of the bedrooms offered a good gathering place to sit and relax and enjoy the evening. Couldn't have asked for much better weather. We didn't venture off the site except to go to the grocery store, where there was an abundance of friendly and helpful employees. Would have enjoyed more time, as we checked in at 4 pm on Friday and checked out by 11 on Sunday allowing only one full day to try to take everything in. My wife and I have already talked about coming back in a few years (when the newest members of the family will be old enough to enjoy). In the meantime, we plan on just the two of us coming back to relax and enjoy all you have to offer. Thanks for making this a most memorable experience for our family. Everyone sends their thanks.

Owner's Response: Well we sure enjoyed having y'all out. I agree, a weekend almost isn't enough to detox from the city - guess you'll just have to come back for a week sometime soon. It also explains why we bought a "weekend place" and ended up moving here - it's a beautiful place to live or to visit. Hope it's the first of many happy returns.
