Cedar Creek Lake is a popular go-to location for North Texans who need a little time by the water. It’s a perfect spot to while away a three-day weekend, take the boat out, maybe paddleboard a little. For us, you can’t do much better than Long Cove, a fantastic community of gorgeous luxury properties that make lakefront living a breeze.

“Long Cove was made with family in mind. Beyond the homes and amenities, the heart of our community is focused on reconnecting with those closest to you. Forge meaningful conversations and create lasting memories without any distractions,” said sales director Josh Ellis. “We wanted a place where you can escape close to home and build relationships with new families like yours. We’ve created a haven where you can be a kid with your kids and let the family feel safe to run free, as you once did.”

Doesn’t that sound dreamy?

El-Corazon

Santa Fe is one of my favorite rubber-tire escapes. I can get there in about 9 hours (10-plus if we make a stop in Amarillo and Cline’s Corners), and it’s worth every minute in the car. The thought has struck me lately that maybe it’s a good idea to consider a vacation home in Santa Fe …

Of course, it’d have to be close to the plaza, near shopping and restaurants, and have great amenities. Fairmont Heritage Place El Corazon de Santa Fe fits all the criteria in a gorgeous package. Seriously, this fractional second home development has some of the most beautiful units, and you can purchase a 1/8 undivided deeded interest in one of these gorgeous condos.
