Vacation Rentals In Dallas TX: 5 Decorating Tips for Cottages

vacation rentals dallas tx | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

Are you thinking of buying a home that you can use for vacation rentals in Dallas, TX?  All you have to do is drive an hour east of Dallas to the Piney Woods of East Texas to find Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we have new cottages and resale cottages to choose from.  Each could be your home-away-from-home when you’re ready for a getaway from the big city and an income earner when you’re not there. Because you want your cottage to be a top rental earner, you need to add decorative touches that will make it appealing to everyone.  What’s the best way to do that?

  1. Choose wall colors like whites and creams that will make your little cottage look bigger inside and give you a neutral color background.  Remember that any color statements can be made with accent pieces.
  1. Embrace a theme that will set your cottage apart from the others.  Many of the Mill Creek Ranch Resort vacation rentals in Dallas, TX are a combination of modern and rustic, which makes them ideal for a Texas ranch theme or a cabin-in-the-woods theme.  While you want your home to have that unmistakable theme, you also don’t want it to be so overpowering and cluttered that potential renters will be turned off by it.  Pick one theme and run with it.
  1. Don’t be afraid of a little color.  White walls, wooden floors and cabinets are nice and neutral; but a pop of color is what gives your vacation cottage personality.  Bring in bright bedding, linens and rugs.  If your home is a mini-ranch house, throw a colorful quilt on the bed and lay down a patchwork rug.  If it’s a Caribbean cottage, teal, lime green and fuchsia can add the visual interest you need to make renters take notice.  Add your colors in the bathroom and in the kitchen, too.
  1. Accessorize to match your theme.  Add lodge-themed accessories like baskets filled with pinecones, carved bear figurines and rustic light fixtures to compliment the woodsy feel of your cottage.  If you’re going for something a little more nautical to reflect your love of the water, add seashells, colorful lanterns and framed boating prints.   Keep in mind, though, that your cottage will also be a vacation rental, so don’t choose anything too personal –  don’t choose anything irreplaceable.
  1. Don’t forget the outside.  If you have a covered porch or deck on your cottage, you know your renters will spend a lot of time there.  Add the two things that no vacation cottage should be without – deck furniture that’s comfortable, durable and attractive and a grill for family get-togethers or when they’re just craving Texas barbeque.  Adding a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and S’mores is a huge attractions for renters.

There is no better place to buy vacation rentals near Dallas, TX than Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  We take care of every detail like the lease of the land, security, lawn maintenance, housekeeping, garbage pickup, water and sewer, WiFi and cable television.  Best of all, we also take care of rental marketing to keep your house rented when you’re not there.  You pay no property taxes and no HOA dues.  So, don’t wait to buy your vacation cottage.  Call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at (877) 927-3439 to speak to, our cottage sales manager today!

RV Park Texas Travel Tips for the Newbie from Mill Creek Ranch Resort

RV Park TX | MIll Creek Ranch Resort

If you’ve just bought an RV, we know you have visions of the open road, seeing the country, and all with your happy family right there with you in the ‘ol camper. And while it’s called “camping,” no tent setup is required at your favorite RV Park Texas, you don’t have to sleep on the ground, no carrying everything you need in a backpack that’s bigger than your oldest child, and going to the bathroom doesn’t require a shovel. You couldn’t be more excited.

However, there are a few rookie mistakes people make when taking their first few trips that can turn your fun family vacation into something that you need a vacation from. Here are a few tips for the newbies. Just because we’ve made these mistakes doesn’t mean you have to.

Plan your route ahead of time: Planning your route ahead of time and spending just a few minutes with google maps before you leave can help save you time on the road and help keep you from getting lost. Research which RV park Texas you’d like to stay at and book ahead; some of the really popular parks do fill up and it’s no fun to scramble for another place to go, especially if you already had a setback and get in late.

Time: It’s incredibly important to keep in mind that this is a vacation, not a race to the finish. Don’t schedule 7-8-9 hour drives, at least not for your maiden voyage, because seasoned RVers know that there can always be hangups along the way that will have you setting up camp in the dark, with no staff to help you orient yourself. Maybe you forgot something and need to stop at Wal-mart, then there’s always unexpected traffic, unexpected weather, unexpected “uh oh, where’s the dog?” Keep your driving days to 4-5 hours. Stop and take pictures along way, stop for a picnic or enjoy more time at the RV park Texas once you get there.

Become familiar with your equipment: This tip can really have an article all on its own. Make sure you know your RV, inside and out and this includes knowing how to drive it (this seems obvious, but you’d be surprised). It’s probably even worth the annoyance to give it a spin in the rain before embarking on your first road trip.

Be careful, have fun, and don’t forget to visit us at the best RV park Texas has, Mill Creek Ranch Resort.
