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.

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.
