Marty and I were guests of The Silver Spur Resort, but as always, all opinions are our own.  We always provide true and honest insight into all travel activities and products we review.

Is there anything better than escaping your daily routine?  It could be as simple as enjoying a fun outing with friends or getting away for a relaxing couples weekend as we did.  Regardless, just getting away to recharge and rest is often exactly what we need. 

I know our visit to Silver Spur Resort came at the right time to allow us to do exactly that—Rest and Recharge!   We couldn’t wait for our stay in the cabins in Canton, Texas!

Canton is a great little getaway and one of the easy road trips in Texas.  Upon arriving at the Silver Spur Resort, I could immediately tell that we were in for a treat.  The property has this cute “old west” feel that gave us a big fat Texas welcome.

Guests check in at the General Store, and stepping inside, I could see that this was much more than a reception area.  The General Store offered everything you could possibly need for a great stay at the resort.

Forget your toothbrush? Don’t worry; they have that.

Need some ice?  Don’t worry; they have that too.

Want some wine to enjoy by the fire? Oh, yes, they have that also.  As a matter of fact, they are the sole distributor in Canton of Miranda Lambert’s Red 55 Wine!

I mean, seriously, this General Store had it all!  They even had a little sitting area where guests could come to drink coffee and play board games (games also provided).

After providing us with the key to our cabin, the staff took the time to tell us about the amenities offered at the resort.  In addition, they provided us with information about Canton trade days and ensured that we had everything we needed for our stay. 

They were truly so genuine and kind. We were definitely off to a good start!

Accommodations at The Silver Spur Resort

There are several different accommodation types to choose from at the Silver Spur.  Since they are a KOA Campground, they offer complete RV sites, tiny houses, cabins, and a large main ranch house for guests to choose from. They even offer covered wagon camping!

Marty and I were booked in a deluxe cab called the “Cozy Cabin.”  A little driveway leads you away from the General Store to the area where the cabin is located. We were so excited to see that our cabin faced the fishing pond on the property.

Upon entering the cabin, we had a nice open area with a small kitchenette (complete with a full-size refrigerator, sink, microwave, and coffee maker), a cute little dining table, and a good-sized sitting area.  The sitting area contained a couch and a set of bunk beds, so those of you with kids can also enjoy these cabins in Canton, Texas!

Off the sitting area, we found the master bedroom with a king-size bed and a good size closet.  Of course, I immediately flopped down on the bed.  It was so comfortable, and the linens felt amazing.

The bathroom was off the kitchen area and contained everything we needed for our stay.  There was a good size shower/tub combo, plenty of fluffy towels, soap, shampoo, and a hairdryer.

Granted, the inside of our cabin was great, but it was the outside area that I fell in love with.  The sliding glass door off the sitting area led us onto a large covered deck overlooking the pond.  At the bottom of the deck was a second sitting area with a patio table, bbq grill, and a fire pit!

I assure you we took complete advantage of this outdoor area.  I might have enjoyed a glass of wine or two out here during our stay ;).

Canton KOA and So Much More

As we mentioned above, the Silver Spur resort not only offers the best cabins in Canton, Texas, but they also offer additional accommodations just minutes from the famous Canton trade days.

The Resort’s Ranch House, “Durham’s Roost,” is a five-bedroom four-bath home perfect for a large group.  This house enjoys great views from the highest point on the resort’s property.  Complete with comfy beds, a private bathroom in each room, and a 32” tv with Dish; your group will feel right at home here.

In addition to the cabins that we stayed in, The Silver Spur also has several tiny houses to choose from.  The tiny houses are cute 24’ houses with a sleeping loft boasting a queen-size bed, a full bathroom, a kitchenette, and a breakfast area. 

Not only can you view and stay in their tiny houses, but they will also build one for you.  Just ask!

The most recent addition to the property is their Conestoga Wagons. Guests can enjoy a true glamping experience while staying in these cool wagons!

The resort, including the Canton KOA, has camping space for over 100!  Bring your RV, find the best parking spot, and call home for your time here. We found several RV spots including fire pits and lawn furniture!

Future expansions will also include the addition of several tree houses! Another reason that we will be back!

Amenities at The Silver Spur Resort

After sleeping for over nine hours straight…, you read that correctly.  I slept for over nine hours!  The bed was just so comfortable and nice and quiet on the resort.  I guess I was tired!

After sleeping for over nine hours, Marty and I enjoyed coffee on the deck before starting our day.  We decided today would be spent touring the resort and checking out its amenities.

The Resort Grounds

Of course, we started our day with a photoshoot.  We found cute places all over the property to capture some fun photos. 

There was a kissing booth, a cute water feature, interesting bridges, and a pond.  Guests can fish in the pond if you release the fish back into its habitat.  There are also paddle boats that you can rent!

Upon touring the property, we discovered they have two fishing ponds, a pool, and a basketball court.  There are also loads of outdoor games to enjoy, like Cornhole, outdoor checkers, and outdoor Jenga.

The Resort Wedding Facility

The Barn at the Silver Spur Resort is ideal for a stylish Texas wedding.  The space is large but cozy simultaneously, and the special touches in the décor make the barn feel dreamy.

I especially love how the light came through the little holes in the barn doors.  It gave the appearance of tiny stars!

If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, the Silver Spur can also accommodate that.  They have created a space out by the pond shaded by the large oak trees, perfect for saying “I Do.”

The Resort offers several wedding packages and can accommodate your special requests.  If you’re in the market for a wedding venue, you should call them.

The Escape Rooms

We were so surprised to find that the Silver Spur Resort has not one but two escape rooms on the property.  These real-life strategy puzzles challenge your brainpower and your ability to work as a team.  Guests can choose from two different themed rooms, The Apocalypse or The Treasure Hunter Room.

Unfortunately, time did not allow us to enjoy the Escape Rooms during our stay, but you can bet we will try them on our next visit!

Q and Brew Restaurant

Q and Brew Restaurant Canton, Texas

In addition to the other great amenities here at Silver Spur Resort, they also offer an outstanding restaurant.  Everyone knows that Texans love their BBQ, so of course, Q and Brew is serving up that and so much more.

Honestly, I could not wait to try the food here since the delicious smells coming from The Smokehouse permeated the property, teasing us all day.

We started our meal with the “Cowboy Stuffers,” fresh jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and brisket, wrapped in bacon, and deep-fried in panko seasoning.  They were incredible!

Marty chose a two-meat platter for our main dish, opting for jalapeno sausage and brisket.  He went for the smoked cheddar macaroni and cheese and the truffle French fries for his sides.

Having the pleasure of visiting on a weekend, we discovered that Q and Brew were serving their normal menu of fabulous BBQs and offering freshly grilled steaks and pork chops.  Of course, I had to have the steak!

I went outside, met the Chef, and watched him grill up my freshly cut 100% USDA Choice Beef steak.  You can see our “behind the scenes” tour of the Smokehouse and our talk with @chefdeezy13 on our Instagram.  Just go to our “Texas” story highlights.

All of our food was perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious.  Paired with one of their craft beers, or in Marty’s case, a craft root beer, this was a meal for the books!

Brewery at The Silver Spur Resort

Speaking of pairing my food with their beer, Silver Spur also boasts the first and only craft brewery in Van Zandt County right on site.

We enjoyed meeting the brewmaster, Garrett, and doing a tour with him.  Garrett taught us all about the beer-making process while showing us his equipment.  After the tour, we sat with Garrett and enjoyed a flight to sample his fabulous beers.

Our flight consisted of five beers: Peach Wheat, Orange Creamsicle, Bavarian Hefeweizen, Mexican Stout, and the rotating tap, an ice-cold root beer.

While all the beers were delicious, I especially loved the peach wheat and the hefe.  Marty enjoyed the Hefe and the orange creamsicle the most.

Garrett explained how he loves trying new and unique flavor profiles in his beer.  He recently made cookies and cream beer that we will definitely return to when he serves up the next batch!

The grounds were immaculately clean, and all the amenities offered at Silver Spur Resort delighted us.  These little cabins in Canton, Texas, were great!  Honestly, you really don’t have to leave the property if you don’t want to.

We love using CheapOAir, Kayak, and Kiwi to search for the best flight prices. We love using these search engines because they search the web for airlines worldwide to ensure you get the best deal! In addition to flights, you can also find great hotel prices on Kayak and Kiwi.

Book Your Vacation Package:

If you want to book an entire vacation package, we suggest using Expedia. We love how easy Expedia is to use, and we always find good deals on entire vacation packages on their site.

Another great site for vacation packages is BookVIP. BookVIP offers super cheap vacation packages to incredible destinations. You are sure to save money using their site!

For full guided vacations, including hotels, some meals, transportation, and guides, then we book with Trafalgar. Trafalgar is a trusted tour company that will meet all your needs while ensuring a great experience.

Trip.com allows you to book flights, hotels, train tickets, rental cars, airport transfers, tours, and more all on one site. Owned by the parent company that also owns Skyscanner, this is a trusted resource for travel booking and a great “one-stop shop.”

Book Your Accommodations:

We always begin our search by checking out honest reviews on TripAdvisor hotels. This allows us to narrow our search for specific properties once we are ready to book. Of course, you can also book directly on the TripAdvisor site!

There are several accommodation sites that we like to use. One of our favorites is Booking.com because it offers a wide variety of hotels and guesthouses at a good price.

Another “go-to” hotel booking site for us is Hotels.com. We love their loyalty program that allows you to earn free nights, and their “secret prices” for members are fabulous deals!

HotelsCombined is another cool site. They allow you to compare all the top travel sites with one search to ensure you find the best deal out there. Kayak works in this way as well.

If you want a luxurious all-inclusive vacation, consider checking out the Sandals/Beaches properties. Sandals properties are for couples only and Beaches are for families. We have visited Sandals in the past and absolutely love the attention to detail and the service they provide.

We love taking guided tours when visiting new places. Our go-to tour companies are Viator.com and Get Your Guide. Both of these companies have been in business for years and provide excellent customer service. You can trust booking tours from their sites for sure!

For a guided city tour, check out City Sightseeing and BigBus Tours. These bus tours are so much fun and easy to hop on and hop off at top attractions in cities around the world.

When we were RVing and staying at KOA we would see these little cabins all the time. I always thought they were adorable! Now that we don't have our RV but we still love road trips I could definitely see myself checking something like this out! I am fond of KOA!
