The Benefits of Tiny Houses When Looking at Cabins in Canton, TX

Cabins in Canton TXAmericans love tiny houses! The tiny house trend continues to make news and add devotees as more and more people take the plunge–full-time or part-time–to tiny house living. A simple online search shows hundreds of websites talking about the amazing benefits of a tiny house, which is usually defined as having between 100-400 square feet. As one of the foremost purveyors of tiny cabins in Canton, TX, Mill Creek Ranch Resort strongly believes in these benefits:

  • Retirement ease — Tiny houses easily lend themselves to couples who have retired and/or hope to travel without the worry of home upkeep while they’re away. The reduced expenses of the tiny house, coupled with the lowered upkeep, make traveling easier to afford.
  • Environmentally friendly — In almost every way, tiny houses leave a tiny footprint on the planet. From low to almost no power usage, low to no chemical cleaner usage, and modern, environmentally sensitive building practices, a tiny house redefines what it means to “live green.”
  • Decluttering — If you elect to live full-time in a tiny house, you’ll necessarily need to downsize your possessions. The consensus among homeowners seems to be a huge sense of relief at being freed from so many things that required upkeep.
  • Traveling/ministry — Among folks who are heavily involved in ministry or who travel extensively, the tiny home lifestyle works perfectly. Instead of a home and possessions that require a lot of time to maintain, tiny homes become a retreat that affords plenty of time for other pursuits.
  • Change up decorations often — If you are a decorating enthusiast, the smaller “canvas” of a tiny home gives you the opportunity to restyle and restore more often without the huge expenses associated with redecorating a larger home.
  • Less time cleaning and organizing — you simply have less to do, giving you more time for more meaningful pursuits.
  • Tiny houses are so cute! — For many, this might be the most compelling reason of all! Each tiny house distils the essence of a larger home into its most unique and lovely parts.
Mill Creek Ranch Resort has long-recognized the value of a fully functional yet smaller space. Our cabins in Canton, TX, allow our owners to realize the benefits of tiny house living. Of course, we add our own benefits, too: upkeep, potential rental income, resort amenities, a spa on-site, and much more. When you’re ready to upsize your life with a tiny house lifestyle, call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 877-927-3439.

Cabins for Sale in Texas: Get Ready for Grilling Season!

Cabins for Sale in TexasGet ready to fire up the grill! Summer provides the perfect opportunity to grill an entire meal–even dessert–over the open flames of a grill. The abundance of fresh vegetables makes meal-planning and prep even easier and more flavorful, especially when their peak flavors are enhanced by the smoky goodness of the grill. Mill Creek Ranch Resort cabins are chock full of grills and fire pits, so we’ve gathered some of the best ideas for you to use during your next stay in one of our cabins for sale in Texas.

3 key ingredients to seasoning your meat and veg are olive oil, salt, and pepper. While fresh herbs make a delicious accompaniment if they’re readily available, the fresh taste of the meats and vegetables you’re grilling really pop with a healthy coating of olive oil, salt, and pepper.  One notable exception: hamburger patties are amazing with Montreal Steak seasoning rubbed in before grilling.

The 3 key ingredients to grilling an entire meal are preparation, preparation, preparation. Prep your meats, vegetables, bread and even fruit before you start placing any of them on the grill so that once something is ready to come off, you’re ready to place the next round of yummy goodness on the grill. It may be tempting to try to prep the next round of food while the current foods cook, for best results you’ll want to give your attention to the grill.

As a general rule, cook meats and any harder to cook veggies–like potatoes–first. As you remove the meat from the grill to rest, you can add faster-cooking vegetables like zucchini or asparagus. To add some unbelievable flavor to your meal, keep a cast-iron skillet handy and place it directly on the grill to easily char some onions and even grape tomatoes. As the vegetables finish cooking, toss a loaf of herbed French bread–sliced lengthwise–on the grill for the final five minutes.

For a dessert like no other, make sure to grab some mangoes or bananas along with vanilla or coconut ice cream. Once you’ve finished grilling your meal, place the unpeeled fruit over the dying embers to caramelize while you eat. Scoop up the ice cream, split open the fruit and scoop out the gooey fruit over the ice cream.

Mill Creek Ranch Resort looks forward to the sights, sounds, and–most of all–smells of your grilled dinner when you check out our cabins for sale in Texas. We expect you’ll be delighted by the easy living here. For a comfortably rustic experience at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, you’ll love Cottage 95 in the Red Tail Pond area of the resort. The barn red cabin decor boasts an antler chandelier and antler lights in the master bedroom, setting the tone for the lovely time you’ll have. With both front and rear deck areas, a fully-equipped kitchen, as well as a bank of grills nearby, Cottage 95 stands ready for summer grilling fun!

When you’re ready to fire up a grill at Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s Cottage 95, please call our sales staff at 877-927-3439.

Vacation Rentals in Canton TX: Diving into Summer at the Water Park!

Vacation Rental Canton TXSummer has arrived and with it the anticipation of summer heat. Even if you aren’t a fan of Texas’ often-blisteringly hot days, relief can always be found when you jump right into your local water park. As you’re pondering what to do during the time you have a vacation rental in Canton, TX, consider these tempting reasons to get your water slide moves perfected:

  • You’ll feel like a kid again. Water parks are replete with life guards and safety features and life jackets. Your only responsibility is to enjoy the ride, the cool water splashing over you…and to keep your suit in place! Speaking of suits…
  • You’ll be free of your work suit, whatever that might be. A swimsuit, however, stretches and moves and gives you the ability to react to the bend in the water slide, swim laps in the pool, or bob up and down in the wave pool. Unless you’re already a lifeguard, your swimsuit is likely far more comfortable than your normal work clothes.
  • You can stretch yourself. Were you scared of the high diving board as a child? Now you can work on overcoming some of those fears. Instead, challenge yourself to have as much fun and thrilling experiences as you possibly can.
  • You can remember how much fun it is to get completely, utterly, soaking wet.
  • You can’t take your phone with you! You’re “forced” to stay in the moment–the screaming your head off, forgetting about real life moment–and you can step out of time for the day. You can enjoy your friends and family face-to-face.
  • You might remember what it’s like to be completely tired of having fun! While kids often play until they are exhausted, adults usually try to conserve their energy. Not at the water park! You can leave it all on the water slide.

If you’re looking for a vacation rental in Canton, TX, this summer Mill Creek Ranch Resort has teamed up with a fantastic water park, Splash Kingdom, to offer a great special for summer. Stay a night in one of the adorable cottages (or two nights in our RV area), and you’ll also receive four passes and four meal tickets for Splash Kingdom, and access to all the amazing Mill Creek Ranch Resort amenities. Please call our friendly staff at 877-927-3439 for rates (at least 72 hours in advance).

Splash Kingdom offers all the best rides and attractions such as a wave pool, lazy river, a kids area, racing slide and water slides galore! What are you waiting for? Book your vacation rental in Canton, TX, at Mill Creek Ranch Resort in Canton, TX, and take full advantage of our splashy summer deal!

Events in Canton, TX: Corporate Retreats–Mixing Business and FUN!

Events Canton TXAre you in charge of planning your company’s corporate retreat? With so many factors to consider for your group, there are probably several questions about where to go, what to do, and how to keep your employees well-fed and well-entertained while accomplishing the specific goals for the retreat. The secret to having a corporate retreat that brings your team together and strengthens your company is all in the location.

  • Is the venue within driving distance of your company? A venue closer to the office will help the bottom line budget for the retreat while hours spent traveling might keep you from all of the activities and team-building efforts that are the crux of your corporate retreat. If the retreat is too close, however, your employees might be tempted to go home or leave early. Further, they may feel as if the familiarity of the area didn’t provide them with a sense of “being away from it all” like they might have hoped.
  • What does the venue offer in terms of meeting space and catering? Your chosen venue should have ample room for not only the whole team but also breakout spaces suitable for smaller group projects and meetings. The staff able should be able to keep your group well-fed so that your whole team can stay focused during meeting times.  Make sure the venue has technical help on call for audio-visual or technological needs. You’ll also appreciate an experienced helper as your retreat liaison, working to proactively plan for the needs of your group.
  • What does the venue offer in terms of attractions and amenities? Because your employees won’t be in meetings or team-building activities around the clock during your retreat, make sure the place you choose has plenty of options for fun and relaxation, both on-site and in the surrounding area. You’re pulling your employees away from their day-to-day lives; make sure they are compensated by having fun options, both indoors and out. Also, be sure to give them a place to actually retreat, have some time to relax and recharge.
Mill Creek Ranch Resort believes that you can find the answers to these questions in our cottages, meeting spaces, amenities, and local events here in Canton, TX. With a location about an hour from Dallas, TX, we are budget-friendly for the company yet far enough outside the Metroplex to give the true sense of being on a retreat. Our meeting spaces work for groups of 10 to groups of one hundred. Our corporate manager stands ready to help you with all technical needs, catering needs, as well as great ideas for fully utilizing our facilities and amenities. We have always been known for our amazing amenities such as hiking, fishing, swimming, disc golf, games, and s’mores at the fire pit!

Cabin Rentals in Canton, TX: A Puzzling Time Can Be Fun on Your Vacay

Cabin Rentals in Canton TX“The human race is like a puzzle: Everyone fits in somewhere, it just takes a while to figure it out.”  Jen Leaman

Although jigsaw puzzles have been around for centuries, the Industrial Revolution really put them on the map–literally! The first puzzles were educational aids in the study of geography. Since that time, puzzles have become a mainstay of American life. Puzzle enthusiasts might even be considered the original “gamers.” According to the widely cited MacArthur study, puzzles–whether backed by wood or cardboard–can be a great boon to your mind’s health, both intellectually and even emotionally. Bring one with you to your cabin rentals in Canton, TX, and start accruing these benefits:

  • Memory retention–you can help stave off dementia, memory loss, and even Alzheimer’s by using your puzzling powers.
  • Organization and self-talk–mindfully solving a jigsaw puzzle can increase your awareness of your own self-talk and help you to use it more effectively for organization (I’m going to put all the sky pieces in this pile) and discrimination (that piece is too dark for this area).
  • Meta-cognition–thinking about your thinking skills–can be carried over to other aspects of your life and help you problem-solve there, too.
  • Concentration–today’s fast-paced, high-tech world often leads to distraction. Attending to a puzzle for ever-longer periods of time can counteract those effects, as can spending time in gorgeous cabin rentals in Canton, TX. Coincidence? Of course not!
  • Perseverance and goal-setting–completing a puzzle takes time and effort, but the reward includes a feeling of accomplishment that can then lead to a desire to complete a bigger or more difficult puzzle. Continuing to set more goals is a wonderful life skill to have at any age.

“I wanna make a jigsaw puzzle that’s 40,000 pieces. And when you finish it, it says ‘go outside.’”  Demetri Martin

With cabin rentals in Canton, TX, at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, you’ll have the perfect place to work on your puzzle-solving skills. Your family would love taking Cabin 22 for a spin! Including the loft, it sleeps six and includes the usual amenities–fully equipped kitchen, open living area, lovely decor. Cabin 22 also includes extras like a large patio with a lot of outdoor furniture and even a bar.

Your stay at Mill Creek Ranch Resort should be a boost to all of you–mentally, physically, emotionally. Use your time to indulge in puzzles for your brain, long hikes followed by a refreshing massage for your body, and time away from the cares of home to relax your spirit.

Are you ready to treat your whole self with cabin rentals in Canton, TX? Please call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 877-937-3439 to book Cabin 22!

Campgrounds in Canton Texas: Happy Campers

Campgrounds in Canton TXOver the past few years, camping and RV vacations have experienced an uptick in activity and popularity. Whether you’re visiting campgrounds in Canton TX, or places around the USA, you’ll notice some wonderful differences from the stereotypical, old-fashioned camping experiences that only seem to involve a rickety tent and a can of beans! Campgrounds–and even the campers themselves–have changed in ways big and small. Here are a few interesting new trends:

  • Wifi–you can find it in coffee shops, malls, schools, and even…campgrounds? While folks used to view camping as a way to get away from it all, now they can also see a benefit to staying plugged in and having instant access to great information about camping, troubleshooting, starting a fire, first aid, bug or bird or critter identification. Honestly, the list could go on for days! While most people probably want to keep their online time to a minimum while exploring the great outdoors, sometimes a little information goes a long way and augments the trip.
  • Value-added attractions–in the past, visiting campgrounds in Canton TX, or other campgrounds was viewed as an economical way to have a vacation. Most campgrounds fed into that mindset and offered very little in the way of amenities beyond the natural beauty (or not) of the surrounding environment. Today’s campgrounds often attract new campers on the basis of their amenities such as stocked fishing ponds, paddle boats, swimming pools or hot tubs, golf cart rentals, and even weekly dances or live music in very cool venues.
  • Camping to build relationships–the modern camper looks to the positive experiences of camping more than the economic benefits. They expect camping to provide opportunities for their family to “do life together” for a few days away from the demands of daily living, and camping really does provide that occasion.
  • Diversity–Camping now attracts far more from different backgrounds than ever before, and the numbers are only increasing. The camaraderie of a campground makes it the perfect spot to meet new people, discuss commonalities, make new friends and–best of all–make sure everyone gets a s’more!
Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s RV campgrounds in Canton TX, stays on trend to benefit the lucky campers who stay there. In fact, The Spa at Mill Creek takes the resort to a new level of indulgence, or–dare we say it–making us trendsetters. If you’re ready to experience all that modern campgrounds have to offer, call Mill Creek Ranch Resort 877-927-3439 and reserve a place to live your camping dreams.

Cabins for Sale in Texas: It’s Not Easy Being Green

Cabins for Sale in TexasGreen living.

Sustainable lifestyles.

Ecological impact.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Quite often, phrases like those above bring up thoughts of doing without and major sacrifices–particularly when we focus on “reduce” rather than reuse or recycle. While Kermit the Frog said, “It’s not easy being green,” being environmentally responsible doesn’t need to mean missing out on the great things in life. Unexpected benefits can be found everywhere, even in less obvious places like cabins for sale in Texas. (More on that later!) Focusing on the things you can do, rather than the things you shouldn’t do, makes environmental responsibility a positive force in your life. So, where’s a good place to start?

  • Grow a garden–you can start with a single tomato plant if a whole big garden feels overwhelming or you just don’t think you have room, but those tomatoes will taste so good and fresh that before long you might find yourself talking planting schedules and root vegetables with your neighbors who were inspired to start their own gardens after eating your extra produce. Good food is contagious!
  • Buy local–much like growing your own produce, buying locally grown or produced food benefits the environment by reducing the energy used to transport it. The food tends to be fresher and better quality, too. Local farmers also typically use organic products on their food, providing another great health benefit for you and your family. Win/win!
  • Go vintage–expand your definition of “reuse” to include reusing items that others have stopped using. Although styles come and go, vintage pieces tend to wear well and can add just the touch of quirky charm that makes a house a home, or makes your outfit pop. A little creativity and research can help open your mind to nearly endless possibilities for repurposing vintage finds. Who knew that being eco-friendly could be so fun? One super-fun place to shop for vintage finds is at First Monday in Canton, Texas. While you’re there, you can check out cabins for sale in Texas (more about that later…really).
  • Plant a tree–That’s it. Plant one. Water it so it stays alive. If you find that you enjoyed the digging and the fresh air and the sense of pride that comes from sustaining something beautiful that in turn sustains you and yours for generations, then plant another tree or find an organization that you can help to plant trees in public spaces.

What does going green have to do with cabins for sale in Texas? Easy answer–Mill Creek Ranch Resorts has Eco-Cabins for sale, like our Cabin 46. The manufacturer builds each Eco-Cabin with energy and resource efficiency in mind, making it easy for you to go green because they’ve done the work for you. All you need to do is accessorize it with a vintage find or two, perhaps?

In Cabin 46, you’ll realize you aren’t missing out on anything by being environmentally sensitive. The cabin boasts an open floor plan with the living and kitchen areas, a master suite with a Queen-sized bed plus a loft with twin beds, a fully-stocked kitchen, a large lot with outdoor furniture, a grill, and even a fire pit for use year-round. The views of surrounding nature are spectacular and will help inspire you to look for even more ways to keep your environment green.

To find out how easy and satisfying it is to “go green” with our Eco Cabin 46, call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 877-927-3439.

Events in Canton TX: What Makes Great Texas Music?

Events in Canton TXTexas has a style all its own. Whether you’re eating the incomparable Tex-Mex, buying high-fashion cowboy boots, or admiring a home built with dazzling Austin stone, you always recognize the Texas “style stamp” of approval. In much the same way, the music of Texas–played in Texas or played by Texans at events in Canton TX–has an unmistakable air of Texan authenticity. Also much like the visual arts, pinning down exactly what makes it unique to Texas takes some work. Like most musical genres, however, the Texas style has had various influences over time:

  • Country–Because most of the folks who originally settled in Texas were from other Southern states, they naturally brought their country music with them. They also brought stringed instruments, some of which–notably the banjo and fiddle–had African roots.
  • Fiddles–Ironically, it was the band Alabama who noted, “If you wanna play in Texas, you’ve gotta have a fiddle in the band.” Perhaps some things are clearer from a distance? Fiddles in the Texas music genre are characteristically slower, although it wasn’t a hard and fast rule because of the region’s love of dancing to fiddle music, too.
  • Western swing–As a response to the love of dancing, bands incorporated more instruments and added a jazzier tempo. Early purveyors of the Western swing were known to enjoy black musicians and tried to fuse that style into pieces that their audiences could dance to.
  • Outlaw music–Even as the relatively genteel Western swing orchestras entertained dance houses across the state, smaller bands of musicians put forth a rougher strain of country music for their patrons in honky-tonks. By this time in the 1970s, musicians were able to access musical styles beyond the former geographic constraints. Rock music came to Texan ears by way of radio and TV and musicians eagerly blended it into the country style they had grown up hearing and playing.
  • Tejano–as with most of the arts in Texas, no list would be complete without mentioning the significant influence of Mexican artists. From Mariachi bands to horn- and voice-driven musical groups, Tejano music has been both a style of its own as well as an influence on more traditional Texas musicians.

Naturally, in a state as big and diverse as Texas, no one style of music can lay claim to being more authentic. Nonetheless, musicians continue to consider their sound “authentically Texan,” as does their audience. In most cases, those musicians have been heavily influenced by some or all of the historically Texas sounds. Throughout Texas, and specifically at events in Canton TX, the music that speaks to the traditionally Texan soul of the state gets played to great acclaim.

Mill Creek Ranch Resort proudly showcases authentic Texas music every Friday night at The Creek. Whether you’re a dedicated music aficionado or simply looking for truly enjoyable events in Canton TX, a concert in a spectacular lodge-like setting overlooking the gorgeous infinity pool at The Creek sounds like a winner. To answer the question about what makes Texas music great, Mill Creek Ranch Resort responds: Texan musicians, great food and drink, and an enthusiastic audience. To find out who’s playing on a given Friday night, call us at 877-927-3439.
