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.

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.

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.)

Maintenance: All the cabins at Mill Creek Ranch Resort are maintained year ‘round by our staff.

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. There are, however, a ton of other things to do and “must-sees” in East Texas that you don’t want to miss when renting vacation cabins in Texas. 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 kids:

Heritage Park Outdoor Museum is a quick drive from Canton and provides a little window into what rural life was like in East Texas in the early 1900’s.

Check out the life and times of alligators at the East Texas Gators and Wildlife park, where you can watch them feed and see eggs and baby gators in addition to a variety of other animals.

Over the holidays, Yesterland Farms provides holiday activities over the fall and Christmas season with a little old-fashioned flare.

For the adults:

Check out Canton’s wonderful selection of boutiques and antique storefronts. Our favorite is the Dish Barn.

Texas wine isn’t just in the Hill Country anymore. Take a wine tour at the Texas Roads Winery to experience the wonderful vintages from North East Texas.

Hit a few balls at the Twin Lakes Golf Course, one of Texas’ top 10 facilities and one of North Texas’ most challenging. Groups welcome.

Over the summer:

During June and July, head to Blueberry Hills Farm or The Berry Bush (or both, they are right next to each other) to “pick your own” variety of East Texas berries, farm fresh and syrupy sweet.

Head out to Lake Fork, hailed as one of Texas’ best lakes for trophy bass fishing. They also have catfish, crappie, sunfish and bluegill, or you can always just enjoy a day on the lake.

During the summer, head to Splash Kingdom Waterpark for fun in the sun. Mini golf is open year-round.

Fun times for everybody, all year long:

Book one of our lovely vacation cabins in Texas at Mill Creek Ranch resort. Our cozy country cottages have modern amenities to make your stay relaxing and comfortable.

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? There are always those ‘vanilla’ hotel rooms that we tend to lean towards because it’s what we’re used to doing…OR you can spice up your vacation experience by staying in one of many Texas vacation rentals at Mill Creek Ranch Resort.

texas vacation rentals | Mill Creek Ranch Resort

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.

If you want to enjoy an extended vacation at a hotel you’ll need to pack your whole wardrobe or plan on spending substantial down time at a local laundromat. At Mill Creek Ranch Resort Texas vacation rentals you won’t have to place your vacation plans on hold in order to get your laundry done. You’ll find a private washer and dryer in your unit so you can start the laundry in the morning on your way out the door to enjoy some fun, and finish the laundry when you come back in the evening.

Mill Creek Ranch Resort Texas vacation rentals provide privacy. There will be no maid knocking on your door first thing in the morning. You won’t hear annoying neighbor noise coming through the walls or from the hallway because you don’t have shared walls in a vacation rental unit. Unlike the cramped quarters of a hotel room you’ll have space to stretch out in your vacation rental unit enjoying a wonderfully modern and beautifully appointed living room, kitchen and bedroom(s). It is truly an upscale home away from home.

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!
