We found Holly Hill about 10 years ago when we wanted a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of touristy Jefferson...while visiting Jefferson. It was also our sanity away from our daily life in the Dallas area! We have been back many times over those 10 years...even though we have moved from the Dallas area to another east Texas town, we still enjoy the serenity of Holly Hill and the company of good friends! Jolene's breakfast ( and lunch and/or dinner if you choose) is never disappointing! You feel like you are "home" when you walk through the door!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Holly Hill Homestead Bed & Breakfast and its companion property, Parkers' Crossing Cabin is a secluded, rural getaway in the piney woods of east Texas. Famous for its 30-year herb and perennial gardens, Holly Hill is known by its regular guests for comfortable, relaxing accommodations, customized breakfasts and personal attention. The 1930's style farm house and property with its variety farm animals, nearly two acres of display gardens and over one half mile of deep-woods, walking trails offer restful relaxation and retreat. The two-bedroom, two-bath house is unpretentious and real, full of antiques and stories reminiscent of an earlier, quieter time of hard work and virtue. Parkers' Crossing offers more private accommodations with two queen beds in one private bedroom and a loft, a one-of-a kind, custom rain shower and beautiful view of the natural setting that is unique to Holly Hill. If you are lucky, you'll get to sleep to the soft, soothing sound of rain on the tin roof.Enhance your stay at Holly Hill with a pre-arranged workshop in herb gardening, cooking, decorating, design or other custom craft by request. Private dinners, luncheons and picnic baskets are also available with advanced notice. ... more less
