3 planning tips for corporate retreats Texas at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

corporate retreats texas | Mill Creek Ranch ResortMaybe you are doing general team building, or maybe your company has a project that will require a little more time than one (way too long) meeting. Corporate retreats Texas are a great way to do both, and with the facilities at Mill Creek Ranch Resort we are here to assist you in taking care of business while taking a little bit of a load off. Here are a few tips to make your next corporate retreat productive, successful and fun.

Plan ahead. Keep in mind that you are taking people away from their homes and their families for a work-related event. You owe it to them to make sure the retreat is both productive and at least somewhat entertaining. Make sure you’ve done extensive research and planned ahead, creating an itinerary of any seminars, speeches, meetings, team building activities or brainstorms so the day or weekend runs smoothly.

Keep your eye on the goal. If your goal is to have ample time together to go through any number of phases of a big project, keep your focus on that. Plan activities and tasks that work towards completing your project as a whole group, in smaller groups, and then regroup as a whole to consider your progress. Do not plan an afternoon of trust falls if your main goal is to get ahead on a big project. On the flip side, do not plan on working on projects if your main goal is team building. Trust fall away!

Location, location, location! The location of corporate retreats Texas is especially important if you are planning an overnight stay. While the purpose of the retreat is to work and/or team build, you are not going to be doing that until your team falls into their beds at night. Book your retreat at a place that has a few things to do after dinner and/or work time.  Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s corporate retreat facilities include low-key activities such as nature walks, roasting marshmallows over a campfire or relaxing in the hot tub so your team will find the retreat fulfilling for both work and mental rejuvenation.

With a little planning and a little help from our corporate sales manager and our activities director, Mill Creek Ranch Resort is the perfect place to plan corporate retreats Texas. Between our state-of-the-art meeting rooms, full catering options, and tranquil luxury resort, let us help you plan a successful, productive and enjoyable corporate retreat.

Worry-free cabins for sale in Texas at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

Texas vacation homes for sale | Mill Creek Ranch ResortBuying a cottage is not quite like buying a residential house; there are a lot of caveats, questions you wouldn’t even think to ask (like, is the water drinkable?), and accessibility considerations. When looking at cabins for sale in Texas, finding a community that’s attached to a luxury resort is a growing trend so you can find secluded peace in the woods, fully loaded with amenities.

In addition to purchasing a beautiful vacation cabin, all the facilities at Mill Creek Ranch Resort are available to you any time you visit. This includes a luxury resort style pool, spa, concierge service, stocked fishing ponds, paddle boats, nature trails, a fenced in dog park/off-leash area and all kinds of children’s activities. Joining our community at Mill Creek Ranch is like having your cabin in the woods and a resort vacation all in one. (We like to call it, having your piece of pie and eating it too.) When purchasing cabins for sale in Texas with Mill Creek Ranch Resort, there are other advantages than buying from a private seller. Here are just a few of the things you won’t have to worry about:

Sewer/septic system: The septic system is often a hot button issue when buying a cabin. At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, you don’t even have to think about it. We take care of all your sewer and water, and it’s all included in your purchase price. (Yes, our water out of the tap is very drinkable.)

Accessibility: At Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s cabins for sale in Texas, you definitely don’t have to worry about being on land locked property or going through the headache and paperwork of obtaining the right of way to access your property. While we are located on 200 acres of woodlands, we are still located in the wonderful small community of Canton, TX and all of our cabins are accessible by very well maintained roads.

Maintenance: All the cabins at Mill Creek Ranch Resort are maintained year ‘round by our staff. This means we take care of housekeeping, garbage, etc. while you are here, and lawn maintence, phone, wifi, land leases, etc while you are away. We even handle everything to rent out your property (giving you an opportunity for extra income) while you are away. In other words, you don’t have to do anything but show up and have a great time.

Call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 1-877-927-3439 for more information on purchasing one of our cabins for sale in Texas or to schedule a tour.
