For Unforgettable Fun, Combine a Visit to Yesterland with Our Texas Vacation Rentals

Heroes are all around us, though we don’t always notice them. They teach our kids, patrol our streets, guard our country, and battle blazes. We owe these brave men and women a debt we can never fully repay. But there are things each of us can do to show them how much we appreciate their service.

Things To Do In Canton | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

YesterLand Farms is doing its part by hosting a Hero’s Weekend September 21st and 22nd. Members of the teaching, law enforcement, military, and firefighting professions can get free admittance to the farm for themselves and up to three family members, simply by showing their work ID at the admission gate. The deal is a great way for public servants to save while stay at one of our Texas vacation rentals.

If you’ve never been to YesterLand, then you’re missing a treat. This special place is a real working farm that offers plenty of good times for every member of the family. Plus, its location makes it an ideal addition to our Texas vacation rentals.

Things to do at YesterLand include the following fun-filled activities:

  • Ride the YesterLand Express, a vintage train sized just right for both kids and adults to enjoy.
  • Enjoy fast-moving twists and turns on the Range, a classic roller coaster that takes passengers through an authentically-styled fort.
  • Take a trip on the Super Slide, a 65’ three-lane fiberglass slide that takes visitors over not one but two heart-pounding humps.
  • Go for a spin (literally!) on the Turbulence and Gyro-sphere attractions, both of which whizz visitors around in circles for some dizzying good fun.
  • Saturday nights in October are a treat! Bring your flashlight and an adventurous spirit to experience all of the fun YesterLand has to offer in a whole new light!

For those who prefer a more leisurely experience, YesterLand also offers wagon train rides, a pumpkin patch, a corn maze, and a mercantile filled with souvenirs and other fascinating merchandise. Plus, after you and your party have worked up a farm-sized appetite, you can enjoy a great meal at the Hog Wild Grill.

YesterLand takes its role as a member of the Canton community very seriously. One way it gives back is by joining with local schools to host field trips. Students can tour the grounds and work areas and see what everyday life is like on an American farm. Each year YesterLand dedicates its corn maze to a charitable organization. This year the maze features the 100th Anniversary of the American Cancer Society, and proceeds from the annual corn maze go to the organization’s efforts to find a cure. So, when you visit, you’ll not only be having a great time. You’ll also be supporting a family-centered business that’s striving to make our world a better place.

You can make your trip to YesterLand even more special by taking part in one of our Family Fall Fun Escape Packages. You’ll enjoy overnight accommodations in either a cabin or at one of our spacious RV sites. You’ll also get discounts on admission to YesterLand and full access to all the great amenities at Mill Creek Ranch Resort. You won’t find a better deal on Texas vacation rentals anywhere. So don’t settle for a bland, run-of-the-mill hotel room when you can stay with us. We look forward to having you and your loved ones as our honored guests.

Benefits of Staying at Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s Texas Vacation Rentals Vs. Hotel Rooms

When it’s time to get away from it all how do you decide where to stay and what to do? There are always those ‘vanilla’ hotel rooms that we tend to lean towards because it’s what we’re used to doing…OR you can spice up your vacation experience by staying in one of many Texas vacation rentals at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.

texas vacation rentals | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

What ARE the differences between Texas vacation rentals versus hotel rooms? There are some similarities: both commonly have televisions, coffee pots, comfortable beds, a community pool and a number of ADA units available for the enjoyment of their guests. But the differences are numerous and remarkable!

texas vacation rentals | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

Although hotel rooms generally have room for a bed to sleep in and a television to watch, Texas vacation rentals at Mill Creek Ranch Resort are upscale fully furnished cottage units with a fully equipped kitchen where all you need bring is the food! We also have a great living space where you can relax, much better than making that bed your sofa and recliner!texas vacation rentals | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

Hotels are usually surrounded by…more hotels! Texas vacation rentals at Mill Creek Ranch Resort on the other hand are surrounded by the peaceful great outdoors of Texas. Other outdoor amenities offered at Mill Creek Ranch Resort Texas vacation rentals that aren’t usually found at hotels are private covered patios and decks, many times with outdoor grills, to relax and enjoy your evening meal or to just sit and enjoy listening to the serene sounds of nature. Additional common outdoor amenities include fishing in nearby ponds, nature trails, picnic tables, playgrounds, bike rentals and outdoor games including horseshoes, lifesize checkerboard and disc golf.

If you want to enjoy an extended vacation at a hotel you’ll need to pack your whole wardrobe or plan on spending substantial down time at a local laundromat. At Mill Creek Ranch Resort Texas vacation rentals you won’t have to place your vacation plans on hold in order to get your laundry done. You’ll find a private washer and dryer in your unit so you can start the laundry in the morning on your way out the door to enjoy some fun, and finish the laundry when you come back in the evening.

Mill Creek Ranch Resort Texas vacation rentals provide privacy. There will be no maid knocking on your door first thing in the morning. You won’t hear annoying neighbor noise coming through the walls or from the hallway because you don’t have shared walls in a vacation rental unit. Unlike the cramped quarters of a hotel room you’ll have space to stretch out in your vacation rental unit enjoying a wonderfully modern and beautifully appointed living room, kitchen and bedroom(s). It is truly an upscale home away from home.

Rental rates of Mill Creek Ranch Resort Texas vacation rentals are comparable or in many cases better than hotel rates. So what are you waiting for? Book your vacation rental today so you can enjoy the peacefulness of that charming cabin in the woods along with luxury resort living!

Another Great Texas RV Park Recipe!

What goes along with summer fun while vacationing with family at a Texas RV Park? Great food of course!  If you’ve done much camping at Texas RV parks maybe you’re already a pro at dutch oven cooking, or maybe you’ve always wanted to try your hand at it, but have been a bit too intimidated to get started.

texas rv park | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

Roger L Beattie of the Backwoods Home Magazine describes dutch ovens: “squatting heavily in dank basements, drafty attics, and dusty, cluttered garages, these three-legged hulks from a bygone era wait impatiently to release their treasures.  Until then, they are pitted by time and tarnished by neglect.  For those who will uncover the mystery, their gaping caverns can once again be brimming with magic.

“From the birth of our nation, Dutch ovens have been an integral and versatile part of Americana.  Sadly today’s high-tech hustle-and-bustle lifestyle has all but forgotten the art of “leather-glove cuisine.”  The coal-black cast iron ovens appear outdated, unfriendly, and forbidding.  Interestingly however, with seven simple secrets revealed, the beginning camp cook and the consummate backyard chef can utilize these forgotten friends to produce a marvelous and unforgettable variety of succulent delicacies.”

Here is a helpful link for beginners and expert dutch oven cooks alike with Roger’s seven secrets of dutch oven cooking.

If the first thing that comes to mind when you think of dutch oven cooking is dump cake, think again!  Virtually anything you can cook in the oven, on the stove top, or in the microwave can be cooked in a dutch oven.  Dutch ovens are one of the most versatile pans you can own!  For those that are new to the art, here is a link to some handy tips from WikiHow on how to use a dutch oven.  

And for those of you who are ready for your next trip, take advantage of the RV specials  here at our beautiful RV resort, a top rated Good Sam Park for 2012 and who many call the best East Texas RV Park.  And while you’re doing your meal planning to decide what delicious food you’ll enjoy while you’re here, here’s a great dutch oven recipe for you to put on your menu list, Campfire Jambalaya, the grand-prize winning recipe from Scouting magazine’s national contest.  Complements of Kevin Young and Jim Brown, Scoutmaster and assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 44, in Heyburn, Idaho:

 

SEAFOOD JAMBALAYA

1 pound boneless chicken breast, cubed

1 pound mild Italian sausage, chunked

1 pound mixed seafood (shrimp, crab, crawfish)

1/3 cup oil

1 large onion, sliced and chopped

1/2 cup celery, chopped

2 small red or green peppers, quartered and sliced

2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped

1 14-oz. can chicken broth

3 cups okra, sliced

2 cups mushrooms, sliced

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon gumbo filé (powdered sassafras leaves)

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup orange juice

2 to 3 cups long-grained white rice 

* Option: Replace cayenne with crushed and dried hot red peppers.

Cook in a deep, 14-inch Dutch oven. Heat chicken and Italian sausage until cooked through, but not browned. In a separate pot, steam seafood mixture until done (shrimp will turn pink).

In the Dutch-oven lid or another pan, sauté onions, celery, and red or green peppers until tender. Add the sautéed mixture, along with the tomatoes, broth, okra, and mushrooms to the chicken and sausage. Mix thoroughly.

Add dry peppers, gumbo filé, and rice. Mix thoroughly.

Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Add Worcestershire sauce and orange juice. Add water as necessary to cook rice. Add steamed seafood mixture. Simmer for another 10 minutes.

 Serves 8 to 10.

Finding The Best of East Texas on the Piney Woods Wine Trail While Staying in our Texas Cottages

texas cottages | Mill Creek Ranch Resort Canton TXOnce known only for its wild grape species growing naturally for thousands of years along lakes, rivers and streams, Texas has matured to become a full-bodied and rich wine country.  No longer must you spend a fortune traveling to France or California, great tasting wine is made in our own backyard.
 One needn’t spend hours formulating a self guided wine tour in East Texas, the work’s already been done and for your next weekend getaway all you need do is follow the Piney Woods Wine Trail .  May we suggest an enjoyable afternoon trip, or a tranquil weekend tasting wine and then relaxing in one of the beautiful Texas cottages along your route?  But which route?

Finally head to Canton, Texas where the town of 3,581’s claim to fame is it’s tremendous growth once a month of up to 400,000 shoppers converging for the World Famous Trade Days which they tout as the oldest and largest continuously operating outdoor market in the United States.

But Canton is much more than a 4 day a month shopping mecca, it’s home to two of the areas’ superb wineries, Savannah Winery & Bistro and Texas Roads Winery & Roadhouse.  The Savannah Winery & Bistro  located at 574 E Dallas St, Canton, TX 75103 offers wine tasting any time.  If you agree that variety is the spice of life then Savannah Winery is the stop for you.  They carry wines from Brushy Creek Vineyards, Homestead Winery, Landon Winery, Los Pinos Ranch, Lou Viney Cellars and Messina Hof.

Planning a Reunion Near Dallas? Special Events Are Even More Special at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

special events dallasReunions can be a great way to gather your family and catch up with family members you haven’t seen in a while (or new ones you might not have met yet!). If you have a large group you’re trying to gather, the planning process can seem overwhelming. Here are a few tips to help smooth the process from the reunion planning pros at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, a Dallas special events venue.

First, if several families are involved, you will need to start talking to them early to gauge their interest and availability. You may want to start this up to six months to a year in advance, depending on how many people will be involved. While you’re talking to them, be alert for any signs that they might be willing to help! The more help, the better. Gather email addresses or start a facebook group for easier communication.

When you’ve got a good idea of when and how many people will be interested in attending, you can pick a venue. Keep in mind that Dallas special events venues can require plenty of advance notice for large groups, so call as soon as you can to make reservations for your 2014 weekend reunion. You will also want to be sure you are aware of any family members with special needs and make sure the venue you have chosen can accommodate them (wheelchair accessibility, etc). Mill Creek Ranch Resorts has kept our guests with special needs in mind in our facility designs from cabins to meeting spaces.

Once you have reservations, it’s time to plan meals and activities. Remember everybody who said they’d be willing to help? Put them to work! Some tasks to delegate could include ordering T-shirts, handling the money, organizing menus (or talking to the caterer), planning games for the kids or scheduling activities, games and prizes, handling presentations or acting as Master of Ceremonies. If you have a photographer in the family, see if they’ll take pictures. Keep everybody up to date on who’s doing what. If you’ve got an email or facebook group going, posting updates will not only keep everyone informed, it’ll keep everyone excited about the upcoming reunion. If you find that some of these things cannot be handled in the family, remember that our Dallas special events venue can help you with the planning.

At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, event planning is a big part of what we do. Don’t hesitate to call us and see what we can help with. Whether it’s ideas for activities, information about fun things to do in the area, catering services, or questions about our amenities, we love to help!

Call 877-927-3439 now to book your 2014 weekend reunion. Still want to give 2013 a whirl?? We are offering special rates for 2013 reunion events held on a weekday, or if your family prefers a cooler Fall weekend reunion we still have availability then too!

Our Vacation Cabins in Texas: the Perfect Place to Take a Break from it All

vacation cabins texasIf you have children at home, they probably can’t wait until school is out for the year. As summer vacation nears, they might even be able to tell you how many more days until the break! Have you reserved your Mill Creek Ranch Resort vacation cabin in Texas yet?
It’s a widely accepted truth that after a long school year, kids need a break from homework. But several studies show that grown-ups need vacations from work too — but we don’t always take them when we need them. That’s a shame, since according to CNN Money, Americans collectively leave 226 million vacation days unused, amounting to $34.3 billion of our vacation time wasted. Aside from the financial waste, consider the health benefits of taking time to recharge, reconnect with friends and family members, and enjoy life.

According to an article from CNN, taking just a few days of vacation every year results in better sleep quality, reduced job stress, and better reaction time. Women who take vacations regularly are three times less likely to be depressed and eight times less likely to develop heart disease. Men who regularly take vacations are 32 percent less likely to die of heart attacks, and 21 percent less likely to die early of any cause. Vacations reduce your body’s production of cortisol, a stress hormone that can age you prematurely.

Taking a vacation is good for our productivity, our blood pressure, and our relationships.
Getting away from it all can be as simple as loading the car with a few changes of clothes and our loved ones. Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s fully equipped vacation cabins in Texas are a great option for hassle-free, convenient getaways. There are activities and amenities for everybody, whether it’s playing a round of golf, riding bikes, paddleboats on Walden Pond, teaching the kids to fish in the stocked fishing ponds, or swimming, or relaxing in the hot tub without the kids. What could be better than just taking a nap in peace and quiet? Our vacation cabins in Texas are the perfect place for a vacation that’s as active or as restful as you want it to be.
Contact us today to make reservations for one of our beautiful vacation cabins in Texas at 877-927-3439 or book online!
