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.

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.

Your East Texas Checklist When Renting Vacation Cabins in Texas

Vacation Cabins in Texas | Mill Creek Ranch ResortYes, most people breeze through town during the First Monday Trade Days, leaving with their wonderful finds and never thinking twice about it.

A stay at Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s beautiful grounds offers a relaxing sanctuary to rest after a day full of activities. Here are some of the reasons to come to Trade Days, and then stay a while.

For Unforgettable Fun, Combine a Visit to Yesterland with Our Texas Vacation Rentals

Heroes are all around us, though we don’t always notice them. They teach our kids, patrol our streets, guard our country, and battle blazes. We owe these brave men and women a debt we can never fully repay. But there are things each of us can do to show them how much we appreciate their service.

Things To Do In Canton | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

YesterLand Farms is doing its part by hosting a Hero’s Weekend September 21st and 22nd. Members of the teaching, law enforcement, military, and firefighting professions can get free admittance to the farm for themselves and up to three family members, simply by showing their work ID at the admission gate. The deal is a great way for public servants to save while stay at one of our Texas vacation rentals.

If you’ve never been to YesterLand, then you’re missing a treat. This special place is a real working farm that offers plenty of good times for every member of the family. Plus, its location makes it an ideal addition to our Texas vacation rentals.

Things to do at YesterLand include the following fun-filled activities:

  • Ride the YesterLand Express, a vintage train sized just right for both kids and adults to enjoy.
  • Enjoy fast-moving twists and turns on the Range, a classic roller coaster that takes passengers through an authentically-styled fort.
  • Take a trip on the Super Slide, a 65’ three-lane fiberglass slide that takes visitors over not one but two heart-pounding humps.
  • Go for a spin (literally!) on the Turbulence and Gyro-sphere attractions, both of which whizz visitors around in circles for some dizzying good fun.
  • Saturday nights in October are a treat! Bring your flashlight and an adventurous spirit to experience all of the fun YesterLand has to offer in a whole new light!

For those who prefer a more leisurely experience, YesterLand also offers wagon train rides, a pumpkin patch, a corn maze, and a mercantile filled with souvenirs and other fascinating merchandise. Plus, after you and your party have worked up a farm-sized appetite, you can enjoy a great meal at the Hog Wild Grill.

texas vacation rentals | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

YesterLand takes its role as a member of the Canton community very seriously. One way it gives back is by joining with local schools to host field trips. Students can tour the grounds and work areas and see what everyday life is like on an American farm. Each year YesterLand dedicates its corn maze to a charitable organization. This year the maze features the 100th Anniversary of the American Cancer Society, and proceeds from the annual corn maze go to the organization’s efforts to find a cure. So, when you visit, you’ll not only be having a great time. You’ll also be supporting a family-centered business that’s striving to make our world a better place.

texas vacation rentals | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

You can make your trip to YesterLand even more special by taking part in one of our Family Fall Fun Escape Packages. You’ll enjoy overnight accommodations in either a cabin or at one of our spacious RV sites. You’ll also get discounts on admission to YesterLand and full access to all the great amenities at Mill Creek Ranch Resort. You won’t find a better deal on Texas vacation rentals anywhere. So don’t settle for a bland, run-of-the-mill hotel room when you can stay with us. We look forward to having you and your loved ones as our honored guests.
