Lake Holiday is a wooded, gated community of about 1,900 acres located amidst mountains 15 miles northwest of Winchester, Virginia. The community is built around a 240-acre man-made lake that offers a picturesque setting for sailing, boating, water skiing, kayaking, canoeing and swimming.

The lake and surrounding area are teeming with wild life, including eagles, great blue herons, wild turkeys, beavers, white-tailed deer and some of the best bass fishing in the state. Swans stop to rest for a week each year and ducks and geese are year-round residents. Community members enjoy beaches, a 91-slip marina, a beautiful lakefront clubhouse, fishing pier, basketball, tennis and beach volleyball courts, and a play area for children.

Lake Holiday was incorporated in August 1970. The site was created out of the riverbed of Isaac Creek, in an area with many natural springs. Shortly after the dam was built, Hurricane Agnes came through and filled the impounded area in just a few days.

The community is managed by an elected 11-member Board of Directors. Day-to-day operations are handled by a professional management staff consisting of a general manager and an administrative staff. Facilities are maintained by a maintenance crew that keeps roads, buildings and grounds in order.

Numerous volunteer committees offer a wide range of opportunities to serve and enhance community life. Residents participate in various clubs, potluck dinners, and activities for all ages. A highlight every year is the Fourth of July boat parade and fireworks display over the lake that residents watch from their boats and the picnic grounds at the clubhouse.
