Health Is Wealth: Benefits of Investing in Cabins for Sale in Texas

Cabins for Sale in TexasShopping for cabins for sale in the Texas area is not only for the super-rich. The properties at Mill Creek Ranch Resort offer numerous physical, emotional, and financial benefits to single individuals, families, and real estate investors. If you are currently searching for a wise investment for your future, use this guide to understand the enormous benefits of purchasing a cabin.

Physical Benefits

If you invest in your own cabin, you will always have a place to get away from the daily grind. The cabin can be your own personal space, which you do not need to share with others unless you have a desire to.

Not only can you paint, decorate, and update as you see fit, but the cabin investment allows you to store the items you know you will need while on vacation. Be sure to leave your clothing, toiletries, toys, and other personal belongings in the cabin, so you do not need to spend time or energy packing when it is time to travel.

Having your own cabin allows you and your family to vacation in either a spontaneous or planned-in-advanced manner.

Emotional Benefits

An estimated 80 percent of workers are stressed on the job, but this workplace stress can also decrease your ability to rest and relax at home. Stress can affect your physical health, increasing your risk of high blood pressure, fatigue, pain, obesity, panic attacks, and depression. If you take prescription medications to ease your stress, you also may suffer from harmful, unhealthy side effects.

Visiting your own cabin on the weekends or periodically for a longer vacation reduces your exposure to stress due to work or home life. By decreasing this stress, you will reduce your risk of the dangerous effects it has on your health while also improving your quality of life.

Financial Benefits

Purchasing cabins for sale in Texas is also a smart decision for your financial future. While you can use this piece of real estate for your own enjoyment, you can also use it as a source of income.

Consider renting your cabin to vacationers to use during times when you know you cannot visit. Be sure to notify the resort’s management, so they can assist you through the renting process and help with marketing.

From a relaxing and enjoyable space for you and your family to an improvement in your financial wellness, investing in a cabin can be a beneficial investment. To learn more about cabins for sale in Texas, contact Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 877-927-3439 today.

The Benefits of Tiny Houses When Looking at Cabins in Canton, TX

Cabins in Canton TXAmericans love tiny houses! The tiny house trend continues to make news and add devotees as more and more people take the plunge–full-time or part-time–to tiny house living. A simple online search shows hundreds of websites talking about the amazing benefits of a tiny house, which is usually defined as having between 100-400 square feet. As one of the foremost purveyors of tiny cabins in Canton, TX, Mill Creek Ranch Resort strongly believes in these benefits:

  • Retirement ease — Tiny houses easily lend themselves to couples who have retired and/or hope to travel without the worry of home upkeep while they’re away. The reduced expenses of the tiny house, coupled with the lowered upkeep, make traveling easier to afford.
  • Environmentally friendly — In almost every way, tiny houses leave a tiny footprint on the planet. From low to almost no power usage, low to no chemical cleaner usage, and modern, environmentally sensitive building practices, a tiny house redefines what it means to “live green.”
  • Decluttering — If you elect to live full-time in a tiny house, you’ll necessarily need to downsize your possessions. The consensus among homeowners seems to be a huge sense of relief at being freed from so many things that required upkeep.
  • Traveling/ministry — Among folks who are heavily involved in ministry or who travel extensively, the tiny home lifestyle works perfectly. Instead of a home and possessions that require a lot of time to maintain, tiny homes become a retreat that affords plenty of time for other pursuits.
  • Change up decorations often — If you are a decorating enthusiast, the smaller “canvas” of a tiny home gives you the opportunity to restyle and restore more often without the huge expenses associated with redecorating a larger home.
  • Less time cleaning and organizing — you simply have less to do, giving you more time for more meaningful pursuits.
  • Tiny houses are so cute! — For many, this might be the most compelling reason of all! Each tiny house distils the essence of a larger home into its most unique and lovely parts.
Mill Creek Ranch Resort has long-recognized the value of a fully functional yet smaller space. Our cabins in Canton, TX, allow our owners to realize the benefits of tiny house living. Of course, we add our own benefits, too: upkeep, potential rental income, resort amenities, a spa on-site, and much more. When you’re ready to upsize your life with a tiny house lifestyle, call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 877-927-3439.

Cabins for Sale in Texas: Get Ready for Grilling Season!

Cabins for Sale in TexasGet ready to fire up the grill! Summer provides the perfect opportunity to grill an entire meal–even dessert–over the open flames of a grill. The abundance of fresh vegetables makes meal-planning and prep even easier and more flavorful, especially when their peak flavors are enhanced by the smoky goodness of the grill. Mill Creek Ranch Resort cabins are chock full of grills and fire pits, so we’ve gathered some of the best ideas for you to use during your next stay in one of our cabins for sale in Texas.

3 key ingredients to seasoning your meat and veg are olive oil, salt, and pepper. While fresh herbs make a delicious accompaniment if they’re readily available, the fresh taste of the meats and vegetables you’re grilling really pop with a healthy coating of olive oil, salt, and pepper.  One notable exception: hamburger patties are amazing with Montreal Steak seasoning rubbed in before grilling.

The 3 key ingredients to grilling an entire meal are preparation, preparation, preparation. Prep your meats, vegetables, bread and even fruit before you start placing any of them on the grill so that once something is ready to come off, you’re ready to place the next round of yummy goodness on the grill. It may be tempting to try to prep the next round of food while the current foods cook, for best results you’ll want to give your attention to the grill.

As a general rule, cook meats and any harder to cook veggies–like potatoes–first. As you remove the meat from the grill to rest, you can add faster-cooking vegetables like zucchini or asparagus. To add some unbelievable flavor to your meal, keep a cast-iron skillet handy and place it directly on the grill to easily char some onions and even grape tomatoes. As the vegetables finish cooking, toss a loaf of herbed French bread–sliced lengthwise–on the grill for the final five minutes.

For a dessert like no other, make sure to grab some mangoes or bananas along with vanilla or coconut ice cream. Once you’ve finished grilling your meal, place the unpeeled fruit over the dying embers to caramelize while you eat. Scoop up the ice cream, split open the fruit and scoop out the gooey fruit over the ice cream.

Mill Creek Ranch Resort looks forward to the sights, sounds, and–most of all–smells of your grilled dinner when you check out our cabins for sale in Texas. We expect you’ll be delighted by the easy living here. For a comfortably rustic experience at Mill Creek Ranch Resort, you’ll love Cottage 95 in the Red Tail Pond area of the resort. The barn red cabin decor boasts an antler chandelier and antler lights in the master bedroom, setting the tone for the lovely time you’ll have. With both front and rear deck areas, a fully-equipped kitchen, as well as a bank of grills nearby, Cottage 95 stands ready for summer grilling fun!

When you’re ready to fire up a grill at Mill Creek Ranch Resort’s Cottage 95, please call our sales staff at 877-927-3439.

Cabins for Sale in Texas: It’s Not Easy Being Green

Cabins for Sale in TexasGreen living.

Sustainable lifestyles.

Ecological impact.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Quite often, phrases like those above bring up thoughts of doing without and major sacrifices–particularly when we focus on “reduce” rather than reuse or recycle. While Kermit the Frog said, “It’s not easy being green,” being environmentally responsible doesn’t need to mean missing out on the great things in life. Unexpected benefits can be found everywhere, even in less obvious places like cabins for sale in Texas. (More on that later!) Focusing on the things you can do, rather than the things you shouldn’t do, makes environmental responsibility a positive force in your life. So, where’s a good place to start?

  • Grow a garden–you can start with a single tomato plant if a whole big garden feels overwhelming or you just don’t think you have room, but those tomatoes will taste so good and fresh that before long you might find yourself talking planting schedules and root vegetables with your neighbors who were inspired to start their own gardens after eating your extra produce. Good food is contagious!
  • Buy local–much like growing your own produce, buying locally grown or produced food benefits the environment by reducing the energy used to transport it. The food tends to be fresher and better quality, too. Local farmers also typically use organic products on their food, providing another great health benefit for you and your family. Win/win!
  • Go vintage–expand your definition of “reuse” to include reusing items that others have stopped using. Although styles come and go, vintage pieces tend to wear well and can add just the touch of quirky charm that makes a house a home, or makes your outfit pop. A little creativity and research can help open your mind to nearly endless possibilities for repurposing vintage finds. Who knew that being eco-friendly could be so fun? One super-fun place to shop for vintage finds is at First Monday in Canton, Texas. While you’re there, you can check out cabins for sale in Texas (more about that later…really).
  • Plant a tree–That’s it. Plant one. Water it so it stays alive. If you find that you enjoyed the digging and the fresh air and the sense of pride that comes from sustaining something beautiful that in turn sustains you and yours for generations, then plant another tree or find an organization that you can help to plant trees in public spaces.

What does going green have to do with cabins for sale in Texas? Easy answer–Mill Creek Ranch Resorts has Eco-Cabins for sale, like our Cabin 46. The manufacturer builds each Eco-Cabin with energy and resource efficiency in mind, making it easy for you to go green because they’ve done the work for you. All you need to do is accessorize it with a vintage find or two, perhaps?

In Cabin 46, you’ll realize you aren’t missing out on anything by being environmentally sensitive. The cabin boasts an open floor plan with the living and kitchen areas, a master suite with a Queen-sized bed plus a loft with twin beds, a fully-stocked kitchen, a large lot with outdoor furniture, a grill, and even a fire pit for use year-round. The views of surrounding nature are spectacular and will help inspire you to look for even more ways to keep your environment green.

To find out how easy and satisfying it is to “go green” with our Eco Cabin 46, call Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 877-927-3439.

Cabins for Sale in Texas: Design Trends for Your Cottage

Cabins for Sale in TexasWhat’s one of the most fun reasons to buy cabins for sale in Texas? Decorating your new space! Cottage decor continues to be a popular style, with loads of magazines and decorating websites devoted to sharing tips and ideas for making your home look like a cottage. Of course, if you have a cabin of your own, you’re halfway to having the cottage look already!

If you’re looking for new ways of making your home or cabin the perfect cottage retreat with just the right cozy style, here are a few tips to remember:

  • White and Warm–white-washing paint over distressed wood or existing paneling is one easy way to create a cozier look and provides a neutral yet stylish background to allow the details of your cottage style to pop
  • Whimsical accessories–a cottage is the perfect spot to let your personality shine, and First Monday in Canton provides the perfect place to browse for the unusual pieces that tell the story of your vacation life. A bright pottery collection, wooden angel statues, old windows and doors with loads of character–each adds interest to your interiors. Mix new finds with family treasures for the most visually interesting rooms.
  • Wicker furniture–although wicker is normally associated with outdoor furniture, using it indoors with more formal pieces enhances an air of rustic and casual elegance in your cabin.
  • Wooden DIY pieces–are you handy? Whether you’re an experienced craftsman or an enthusiastic novice, filling a cottage with hand-hewn items ups the charm factor considerably. Weathered–your pieces need not be new to add life to your cottage. Instead of chasing perfection, the cottage look celebrates the nicks and scratches that tell the storied history of the piece.
  • Wild–have you always wanted to try your hand at decorating with multiple patterns and bright colors? Grab a scrappy quilt or two, a braided rug, funky pillows, polka dot drapes, and a bunch of flower photographs in primary colors. You might be surprised at how vibrant and livable your space seems. The smaller scale of cabins for sale in Texas gives you the perfect chance to make a “test lab” for your decorating ideas. Who knows? You might find that you want to incorporate your newfound flair back home!
Mill Creek Ranch Resort has a fantastic array of cabins for sale in Texas that will allow you to test your hand at decorating, cottage style! You can make your own perfect getaway any time you want! Even better, you’re in a resort setting with amenities and activities to make each vacation memorable. No matter how you decorate your cabin, your time at Mill Creek Ranch Resort will be wonderful!!

Cabins for sale in Texas: Unplug Electronics and Recharge Your Life

Cabins for Sale in Texas“I need to check my email again.”

“I have 14 Facebook notifications!”

“Look! Another Snapchat!”

“Just google it.”

How many times have you heard these phrases from your family and friends…or found that you were just as plugged into your phone or netbook or tablet as they are? Can you leave your phone turned off during a family dinner anymore? Even during “down time,” are you streaming movies or playing games online? The lure to stay connected and reachable has reached epic proportions and shows no signs of slacking off. Should you consider a little slacking off, perhaps?

While technology has certainly improved the modern world, many compelling reasons exist to tone down the use of it, at least for a time. As you consider our outstanding cabins for sale in Texas, don’t forget the benefits that can accrue from instituting an unplugged lifestyle while you’re here!

  • Scientists are beginning to discover the brain benefits of silence, including increased growth in the parts of the brain associated with learning, memory, and emotions. Who doesn’t need better memory?
  • Comparisons can steal your joy. Nowhere else can you find more plentiful opportunities to compare your life and find it lacking than online. On social media, your friends post the perfect vacation photos, your old high school buddy bought a mansion, and your cousin found a dream job–the same job you would love to have. Websites abound with pictures of more and better and newer and on and on. Unplugging gives you the chance to appreciate what you already have.
  • As Ferris Bueller famously said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.” Unplugging gives you and your loved ones a great chance to look around and make some memories. You might even find yourself looking for great cabins for sale in Texas so you can do just that!
  • Most of the time spent online and electronics involves consumption, either of games or knowledge. Time spent offline, however, provides you with the opportunity to create: memories, art, games, photographs, laughs. The best part, of course, is creating those things with the living, breathing people you love beside you.

Mill Creek Ranch Resorts believes that one of the best places to unplug your life for a little while is in and around our Cottage 97. Built in a solid, classic Craftsman style, this cabin boasts a view of Red Tail Pond every time you walk out the front door and a gorgeous view of SouthPointe Pond off the spacious back patio. Imagine fishing or bird watching every day; the back patio has two rocking chairs ready for you right now! Imagine your family in the spacious feeling living room, playing a game one night while planning out the follow day’s schedule of disc-golf/horseshoes/cannonball jumping tournaments. You sure can’t do all of that online! If you have children, imagine them sharing secrets in the upstairs loft as they drift off to sleep after a full day of living life without a phone at the end of their wrists. Yes, Mill Creek Ranch Resort has cabins for sale in Texas, but we’re also hoping you’ll use your time in our family’s cabin to disconnect your electronics and reconnect with life.

To find out more about buying the fully furnished and lofted Cottage 97 (that sleep six people!) as well as all the amazing advantage and amenities that come with your purchase, please call the friendly staff at Mill Creek Ranch Resort at 877-927-3439.

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.
