An East Texas Resort for Spring Break? Yes!

east texas resort for spring breakSpring break is right around the corner. If you’re hoping to get away, it’s not too late to book a family trip to an East Texas Resort. Spring break is the perfect time to recapture the slower pace and family closeness you shared over the winter holidays while enjoying the freshness that comes from spring weather as nature starts to wake up.

What can your family do outdoors?

  • Play disc-golf! It’s the perfect opportunity for the kids to learn some finesse from grandpa or mom. Ramp up the fun (and competitive) factor by having “closest-to-hole” prizes on certain holes. A prize bucket with candy provides the extra motivation to hone your flinging skills.
  • Take a nature walk. Spring is the perfect time to look at the daily progress trees make as their leaves unfold more each day. What a perfect opportunity to talk about turning over a new leaf, fresh starts, and the beauty of the natural world. Bonus: who can spot the most types of trees? Bigger bonus: who can spot the most bird nests?
  • Paddle boat races! If that’s not your speed, perhaps some paddle boat dawdling while you enjoy the water will do that trick? Either way, paddle boats are a great way to get on the lake. Bonus: you can introduce your family to life without electronics for a while!
  • Whether you’re a novice or experienced angler, fishing in a stocked pond is always a springtime pleasure.
  • Early spring evenings are often rather nippy; gather around a fire pit and make s’mores! Who can resist that warm, gooey, chocolatey goodness?
  • Don’t forget to pack a swimsuit! Whether you hit the gorgeous pool or relax in a hot tub, the water is always a great place to spend time with the family.

What can your family do indoors?

  • Board games and puzzles provide the perfect way to sit down and connect with your family during spring break. Whether you’re working on an intense game of chess or laughing at charades, your family can make memories and strengthen bonds from the comfort of your own cabin.
  • Take time to cook together. Does your family have a special recipe you’d love to pass down to your kids? Using your “extra” time on vacation to teach and feed your kids provides a lifetime of memories for them, and it’s also nice on the budget.
  • Color! Coloring books for all ages are the rage right now. They’re easy to transport and great to have on hand for the unexpected rainy day. Bonus: let everyone have the opportunity to DJ your coloring time and start learning to appreciate all the styles of music your family enjoys. You may find your tastes are more similar than you had thought.

East Texas might not be the obvious choice for spring break, but a few days at a cabin in the beauty of the piney woods could be the perfect way for your family to enjoy the beginning of a new season. The Mill Creek Resort Ranch offers your family all of the options mentioned, and many more, too! You won’t want to miss all the activities our events coordinator is cooking up–excursions, crafts, and more. Let Mill Creek Resort Ranch host your family for a spring break vacation filled with memories for a lifetime, all at an

Canton Cabin Rental 19 – A Nature Lover’s Dream!

Cottage 19 is one of our executive cabins that sleeps 6 and its location couldn’t be more advantageous to the nature lovers in your family.  Nestled under the trees, Cottage 19 has a great view of all of the scenic beauty the Canton area has to offer; plus, it’s only steps away from the walking trail, North Pointe Pond and Morning Dove Pond.  When you walk up to the front of the cabin, you’ll see that it was built for this woodsy setting with the look of a log cabin.  

Your Cabin In The Piney Woods

There’s no doubt you’ll feel like you walked into a Texas ranch house when you step through the front door.  The decor is rustic with cowhide and Lone Star accents in almost every room; but that doesn’t mean you’ll be roughing it.  Cottage 19 boasts all of the comforts of home and then some.  In the kitchen, you’ll find all of the appliances you need to whip up a great meal.  The living room and bedroom and loft area all have flat-screen TVs and the loft even has a WII to keep your kids entertained at the end of a long day of outdoor fun.  Want to wind down in the living room or master bedroom with a good book or a glass of wine?  Turn on the electric fireplaces in either room to make the cabin a relaxing and cozy hideaway no matter what the weather outside is like.

Room For Everybody

Because Cottage 19 sleeps 6, you’ll have room for the whole family.  The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed while the loft has two twin beds, just right for the kids.  The living room sofa is a sleeper with a memory foam mattress that will be great for parents, friends or anyone else staying with you.  When you have 6 people in one cabin, you need a great outdoor space where everyone can spread out.  Cottage 19 is equipped with a large, flagstone patio, fire pit, grill, tables, chairs and even a bench swing.

Resorts in Dallas: 5 Must-Know Kid Friendly Travel Tips

Resorts in Dallas | Mill Creek Ranch ResortWhether it’s a staycation or a vacation, heading to any of the best resorts in Dallas with the kiddos in tow doesn’t have to be met with a groan from the parents. The “family vacation,” for better or worse, sticks in a kids memory all the way through to adulthood. Remember your family vacations as a kid? Here’s how to make sure your kids remember the family vacation for the better.

Take it slow: Plan a little extra time for everything than you normally would if you were traveling solo or as a couple. Breezing by a national monument in the car while taking photos out the window may be okay for you, but the kids will actually want to see it up close. Or at least stretch their legs. Recognize that hiking and walking with kids will be slower, and take advantage of this opportunity to stop and smell the roses.

Keep their needs in mind: If the kids still need naps, plan around the naps. Honestly, what’s worse: missing one site on the route or having a cranky kid that makes seeing said site a miserable experience? Same goes for eating.

Pick a kid friendly hotel: And stay more than one night. There is nothing more exhausting than packing and repacking every single day on a vacation, nevermind all of that will only slow you down in the long run. A kid friendly hotel will help keep the kids from getting bored. You don’t necessarily need to find a hotel with a full fledged water park, just make sure there is at least a pool and/or game room.

Find something with a kitchenette: Whether it’s an extended stay or B&B or apartment rental, remember how much faster and cheaper breakfast will be with your small children when you can throw together some cereal instead of going to a restaurant.

Plan a little “alone time”: Keep in mind people get tired of each other. Especially families. Many hotels and resorts in Dallas offer babysitting or have kid-friendly activities so everyone can take a little breather from each other.

Head to one of the best resorts in Dallas for the whole family. Mill Creek Ranch Resort has swimming, nature walks, kids activities in the summer, fully equipped kitchens and grills for cooking, and a whole host of activities in the area that are fun for kids and adults alike! Call 877-927-3439 for more information and availability!

Rustic design ideas when considering cabins for sale in Texas

cabins for sale in texas | Mill Creek Ranch ResortMill Creek Ranch Resort’s cabins for sale in Texas do come fully furnished and outfitted with modern appliances and rustic yet modern finishings, but the interiors and decorating aesthetic are entirely left up to you. The biggest trend in design for cottages is definitely to take it rustic all the way. To make your cottage a cozy rustic getaway, here are a few design and decor tips.

Consider your materials: When it comes to rustic design, think au naturale, and go for a lot of wood. There are tons of creative uses for wood, old or new, unpolished or reclaimed. This is also a wonderful way to go green and recycle. A little sandpaper and paint on an old door can make a charming coffee table top or headboard. When it comes to fabrics, consider natural fibers like linen, cotton or burlap.

Pick your palette: A rustic design usually centers around a palette of neutrals, especially those that reflect your surroundings, like browns, beiges, grays and sometimes green. If you are a color hound and find neutrals a yawn, definitely add some character with color. An otherwise neutral palette makes one or two accent colors really pop. Pick an accent wall to paint, or use bright colors in your linens (bed and/or table), throw pillows, etc. and you can even change them out seasonally.

Fine found finishings: A wonderful way to snazz up your rustic getaway, especially in the kitchen, is with those one-off unique bowls, vases and bottles that never seem to have the right place in your permanent residence (but often hold sentimental value). If you don’t have any items of this nature, never fear. Just come down during First Monday and find something unique at the nation’s biggest flea market, or take advantage of the numerous antique stores in Canton. If all else fails, invest in a few different sizes of mason jars to use as glassware, vases, cotton ball/toiletry holders, or anything else you can think of! Then send the kids on a flower and foliage hunt when you arrive to display inside or on the patio during your stay.

Remember that at Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s cabins for sale in Texas, we take care of all the maintenance inside and out, both while you visit and when you’re away. You won’t even have dust-on-arrival. Contact us for more information on purchasing a vacation cottage or to schedule a tour.
