Wanna get away but don’t want to hassle with traveling? No worries, just take a short drive to Mount Vernon, Texas (just under 2 hours from Dallas). There you will find Deer Lake Cabins Ranch Resort part of an 800 acre nature preserve in the beautiful piney woods of East Texas. There are several different cabin sizes and styles to choose from. The quaint Blue House or the Cozy Cottage for a couples getaway, or the Kangaroo Corner, Texas Star or Rambling Rose for a larger family or friends retreat. The cabins are located next to private lakes that are great for fishing, boating or just relaxing.

If ATV’s aren’t your thing, you can get a bike to explore the trails.

Once you are done relaxing and unwinding, you might want to take it up a notch and do some exploring on the 15 miles of nature trails around the area in your off road side by side (available for rent). There is a lot to explore at Hay Meadow and around the property. You can check out the different lakes as well as the stable area where you can take a horseback ride. If ATV’s aren’t your thing, you can get a bike to explore the trails. For the water loving folks, free use of kayaks, flat bottom boats, paddle boards and pedal boats gets you out on the lake for a scenic ride. There is even a petting zoo for the kids! There are guided tours available as well.

The cabins are fully furnished and have everything you need for a great stay! All you need to bring is some food if you want to do some cooking or barbeque on the grill – don’t forget the charcoal. You don’t even have to “rough it” since the cabins are heated and air conditioned. The cabins are pet friendly so bring your furry family member along. Reserve your cabin, get unplugged and reconnected to the ones you love.
