Make Our Texas Cottages At Mill Creek Ranch Resort Your Family’s Home For The Holidays!

family reunions dallas | Mill Creek RanchHave you got family coming for Christmas, Hanukkah or New Years?  Why not arrange a get-together they’ll never forget in our Texas cottages at Mill Creek Ranch Resort in Canton, Texas.  Not only will you give your family the best holiday ever, but the only thing you’ll have to worry about is having fun.  At Mill Creek Ranch Resort, we love hosting families of every size – from couples to extended families having once-in-a-lifetime reunions.

What makes having your holiday family gathering at Mill Creek Ranch Resort so great is that we have something for everyone, from toddlers to seniors and from readers to runners.  No matter what your family likes to do, we have it at Mill Creek Ranch Resort and because of our mild, Texas winters, even warm-weather activities can still be enjoyed around the holidays.  For the littlest ones, we have a gated kids’ playground and lots of green space and nature trails for getting their energy out.  For teens, we have volleyball, basketball, disc golf, swimming and, yes, even video games.  For adults, we have bird watching, fishing, paddle boats, biking and live entertainment.

For the whole family, we have old-fashioned hayrides, S’mores over an open fire and last-minute gift buying in Canton’s boutiques, shops and at the world-famous First Monday Trade Days.  To make the holiday experience complete, you can visit Yesterland Farm, one mile away from Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  At Yesterland Farm, the little ones in your group can talk to Santa, visit the farm zoo and play in the western ghost town.  For everyone else, there are old-fashioned mechanical rides like Santa’s Runaway Sleigh roller coaster.

As if all that wasn’t enough, when your family sees our Texas cottages, they’ll be even more impressed with your choice of Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  Each cottage has its own special charm but with all the modern conveniences that make life care-free – wifi, television, full kitchens, washers and dryers.  All of our rental cottages have queen-sized beds,  sleeper sofas in the living room and others have loft areas equipped with twin-sized mattresses.

Call our reunion events manager today at 877-927-3439  to make reservations for our Texas cottages at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.  We can make your family holiday get-together a memorable one.

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!
