MD Resort Bed and Breakfast
When Donna Davis Mixon's family has reunions, they don't mess around; the four- to seven-day-long affairs resemble a summer camp, with campfire cookouts, games, talent shows, and Christmas caroling. Donna and her parents sought to recreate this atmosphere when they founded MD Resort in 1999 on the grounds of a former emu and donkey ranch, where they converted the hay barn into a party house and installed a pool and luxurious main lodge. Now the ranch plays host to getaways and events of all kinds, from weddings to romantic corporate rendezvous. Each of the rustic rooms in the property's three lodges presents a different aesthetic charm, from the elegant four-post bed and jetted garden tub of the Victorian Lace Room to the Old West-style wooden cabinetry and pelt rugs of the Western Vista Suite.
When friends and couples emerge from their rooms, they can while away the time with interactive murder-mystery dinners and a slew of other activities, such as meeting the ranch's animals, gathering pecans, and soaking in the hot tub. The main lodge's game room facilitates friendly competition and shared laughs with its pool table, board games, and tournament-regulation rock-paper-scissors equipment.
