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.

Visiting Canton for First Monday Trade Days? Stay in our Texas cottages at Mill Creek Ranch Resort

Texas Cottages | Mill Creek Ranch ResortOne of the big draws for Canton is the First Monday Trade Days flea market that takes place on the weekend preceding the first Monday of every month. People come from far and wide to look at (and purchase) oozits and whatzits galore. While Canton is a mere 60 miles from Dallas and many people from DFW day-trip it for the Trade Days event, coming to Trade Days is a great excuse to get away for a night and stay in our quaint Texas town at one of our cozy upscale Texas cottages.

Today, First Monday Trade Days is one of the oldest and largest flea markets in the country, but its roots lay in the mid 1850’s when the circuit judge would come to Canton to hold court (as this was Canton’s designated day). People naturally gathered at this time to watch the court and conduct business, and thus “First Monday” was born.

Today, “First Monday” takes place on the four days preceding the first Monday of every month (no doubt to better accommodate our busy weekday schedules and to help with crowds). It occupies about 450 acres and consists of over 7,000 vendors, so saying this once little flea market has grown is a bit of an understatement. The vendors prices and products can variety from low end to high and so can the prices. Some are stingy with the bartering, but haggling is still always welcome and it doesn’t hurt to give it ago. The event’s Wikipedia page also offers some great tips to first-timers, like coming on a Thursday or Friday for a better selection and to avoid crowds.

Seeing most of the booths and vendors can take more than a few days  (especially if you count on getting a little lost if you are not familiar with the market and pavilions). After a long day of window shopping, haggling and buying, the last thing you want to do is drive over an hour back home. Luckily, our resort and cozy Texas cottages are a mere quarter of a mile from the Canton Marketplace (the northernmost building in the Trade Days complex). Not only is this convenient, it also means you don’t have to deal with parking (and, of course, don’t have to pay for parking). You can come and go from the market as you wish, or power through the whole thing and come back to the resort for some rest and relaxation.OUr cottages have a fully furnished kitchen and several cottages have grills on the back patios for grilling.  Why fight the crowds at the restaurants, grill a steak and drink you favorite beverage, all at the comfort of your very own cottage.  We suggest the hot tub to soothe tired legs! We also offer complimentary shuttle service.  So, come out and stay in our beautiful Texas cottages and enjoy a great First Monday weekend.

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?

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.
