About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath home walking distance to Lake Greenbriar

Welcome to Deer Haven, located inside Holly Lake Ranch, East Texas' premier gated-vacation resort. There is a reason we call this gorgeous 3 bedroom, 2 bath home "Deer Haven". It sits on 3 beautiful wooded lots on which the deer love to roam! It is not uncommon to see does with their babies or a few bucks hanging out in this wooded area. Plus, Lake Greenbriar is just a short walk from this home for those outdoor enthusiasts who like fishing or boating.

This home is perfect for couples getaway or family gatherings. It has 2 king bedrooms and 1 queen bedroom. The large master bathroom has double vanities and walk-in shower. The guest bath has a large single vanity and shower/tub combination. The open concept living room is spacious and offers plenty of seating for families to gather. And to top it all off....the sun room is totally set up as a "man-cave" for those who want to enjoy a peaceful setting with an outdoor theme! The large open kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed for family meals, a breakfast nook with seating for 4, and modern appliances. The dining room has a large farmhouse table that seats 6-8 comfortably for meals or for family games. Enjoy morning coffee or an evening glass of wine out on the back patio while gazing at the wildlife and piney woods, far away from the hustle and bustle of city life! And you will never run out of things to do at Holly Lake Ranch....swiming pools, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, miniature golf, basketball, shuffle board, ping pong, hiking trails, activity center, 18-hole PGA golf course, plus restaurants. This home offers a quiet, peaceful setting in a resort community where there is something for everyone to enjoy!

About Joe and Carolyn Fields

We started off as college sweethearts and now have enjoyed 42 years of marriage. With 3 grown children, and 3 adorable grandkids, our home has always been the hub for folks to gather for food, fun and fellowship. We love offering a place for family and friends to gather, connect, and build great memories. The grandkids love coming to our lake home at Holly Lake Ranch to fish, swim, play and enjoy the activity center.

Why Joe and Carolyn Fields chose Hawkins

We first vacationed at Holly Lake Ranch in 2011 at a waterfront home on Lake Greenbriar. The fishing was great and we immediately fell in love with the beauty of the piney woods, private lakes, wild life, and resort amenities. So we bought a waterfront home here and rented it out as a vacation home (Dock Holiday) until ready to retire. Now as “retirees” we live in Dock Holiday and manage 5 other vacation rentals (all on “the Ranch”) and love providing places for relaxation, outdoor adventure, and great memories for family & friends.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at Deer Haven at Holly Lake Ranch over Thanksgiving Break, and it was the PERFECT Getaway! We felt so lucky to be staying in this beautiful and comfortable home (the home is even MORE awesome than the pictures -- it's just lovely, clean, and offers anything and everything that you would need for a vacay!!!) -- and truly, Holly Lake is such a lovely and peaceful place that we just didn't want to leave! Also, Joe and Carolyn are just the best folks to rent from -- so attentive, accommodating, and kind! Thank you so much, Joe and Carolyn, for allowing us to experience this fantastic home!
