Box Car Ranch Retreats

How We Got Our Start

Owners Amy and Laura Turner opened Box Car Quilts Quilt Shop in 2017 with a goal of opening an overnight retreat facility one day.  Instead of purchasing new land, the Turner's decided to convert half of their working ranch into retreat accommodations.  Construction started on their Ranch in late 2020 and Dean's Cottage officially opened in 2021 and Maxine's Manor opened a year later in 2022. 

About the Ranch

Our retreats are located on a beautiful 50 acre working horse ranch located in the heart of Horse Country, USA just 6 minutes north of Denton, Texas.

Dean's Cottage is located on the front side of the property, and just across the pond is Maxine's Manor.

Dean's Cottage

Lovingly named after Amy's mother, Dean's Cottage is a 3,000 square foot home that has been converted to a modern farmhouse retreat.  With accommodations for up to 8 guests, the Cottage is the perfect setting for your next intimate retreat.

Maxine's Manor

Lovingly named after Laura's Mother, Maxine's Manor is in a large 6,400 square foot building that has been converted to every crafter's dream.  With accommodations for up to 24 guests, the Manor is the perfect setting for large groups, or for individuals to come and meet new friends.

Cornell and Ward's General Store and Quilt Shop

Named after Amy and Laura's fathers, the General Store will have an assortment of items that anyone might need for their retreat including snacks and quilty goodies.

Check the Home Page for the dates/times it will be open!
