East Texas Cabin Rentals

East Texas Cabin Rentals - There are many interesting places to visit in Texas, but the Piney
Woods area of East Texas is a beautiful setting for any cabin rental getaway. Each year I plan a
special weekend getaway with my son and I was looking for a log cabin rental fairly close to Dallas.
November, 2011, both the cabin and the location worked out just great and the weather in mid-
November was in the mid 70's and very comfortable for outdoor activities.

Pine Cone Cabin is located about 100 miles east of Dallas just north of Hawkins and Tyler,
Texas. It is located in the gated
Holly Lake Ranch community, which has on-site security, an 18
hole PGA golf course, lakes, restaurants, and an activity center where you can sign out sports
equipment and other items. There are also hiking trails in the community, putt-putt golf, tennis
and many other activities available here. Although there is much to do at Holly Lake Ranch, the
surrounding towns provide many opportunities to explore, eat out, or catch a movie. Tyler State
Park is a beautiful area to visit and is just a little over 10 miles south of here.
The cabin was equipped with everything that we may have wanted or needed. The owners include a
helpful binder in the cabin with maps and other useful information. It contains helpful tidbits about the
cabin and the surrounding area. They were also very good about including items that we may have
forgotten (e.g. sunscreen, a hairdryer).

All and all my son and I had a wonderful time. The cabin had everything we needed and it was a great
base camp for exploring the area. One night we just hung out and relaxed around the fire watching
some TV, talking and enjoying a pizza from the Activity Center. While we were there we golfed,
visited Tyler State Park and spent some time in and around Tyler.

Although, many of the homes in the community are fairly
close together, the cabin is located in a very secluded,
densely forested area at the end of the road. The cabin is
nice log cabin with a great front porch to sit back and
relax ,and enjoy the scenery. It has an open living room,
dining room, kitchen area, along with two bedrooms and
one and a half baths. There is a nice wood stove in the
living room that we made good use of. It was great to relax
and visit with a nice fire crackling in the fireplace. In fact,
when we arrived the fireplace was already loaded with
wood and kindling, so that all we needed to do was open
up the draft and light it.

If you are looking for a nice place to get away and relax, then you may want to consider renting the Pine
Cone cabin in East Texas for your next trip. It was a great stay for us, and both the cabin and the area
have much to offer.
