take a recess from your busy life

Spend time in our tiny cabins, secluded by pine trees and let nature replenish you.


Recess, fresh air & imagination are key to a balanced life in the modern world.

We had them as a child and lost them along the way.

We brought them back and they restored us.

what guests are saying

"I stayed at Tranquil Cabins for two nights & it was every ounce of peaceful and quiet that I needed! I work in downtown Dallas and get so caught up in the hustle & bustle of city life. Being able to escape that, even just for two nights, did wonders for me! I came home feeling refreshed and ready for regular life! The property is just beautiful & tranquil! Stay here, you won’t regret it!!"

– Caitlin

"This was a great secluded getaway for us. Loved the big windows in the sleeping area. Adirondack chairs around the fire pit were very comfortable. It was a simple way for us to disconnect and unplug from our busy lives and just be together. I will definitely be back."

– Matt

we believe in recess

Recess has the power to give you a better attitude, more energy, increased focus, determination and confidence.


Make it happen! Pick your dates, decide who's joining you and pack your bags. We will take care of the rest.


Just breathe. Unclench your jaw and take a breath. Inhale. Exhale. Reset. Recover.


Immerse yourself in nature. Allow yourself to be inspired.
