Roger says: “Life is what you make of it. Grab what you can while you can. Heck, the chickens come around when I’m trying to eat my banana; if I drop a bite, they are there to peck it up quickly. One must always be vigilent. Grab it first with no hesitation.” Life on a Texas Guest Ranch.

Guests of our Central Texas Vacation ranch sometimes have the opportunity to watch cowboys and cowgirls at work. Below you can see our herd of purebred Angus being rounded up. This time we used a jeep and a golf cart; other times we use horses.
Our Houston area cabins are situated on a 600-acre ranch, meaning there is plenty of room to roam. Guests may watch us at work, participate in a morning feed tour, or simply relax on the porch in the shade.
Guests of our Houston Texas Vacation Ranch come here because we’re unique. We’re a working cattle ranch in beautiful Central Texas, with private cabins that sleep as few as two or as many as eight people. We’re situated on more than 600-acres with rolling grasslands, ancient live oak groves, and picturesque ponds. We’re an ideal location for weddings, corporate retreats, or girlfriend getaways, offering horseback riding, archery, and a host of other activities.

We never know who will stop by our Houston area guest ranch. Read on and discover how some folks recently dropped in on us.
One of those surprise Texas thunderstorms appeared, and a helicopter was heard overhead, very close by. After the whirling sound suddenly stopped, a ranch hand ran to the pasture and found the helicopter on the ground; the two men in the helicopter had to quickly find a place to land, as they were in the skies in the rain, with no doors. They put a tarp over the copter and got a tour of the ranch until the thunderstorm passed. Of course, they were invited to ride some horses, eat at Carol’s Cat Spring Restaurant, and spend the night at BlissWood Texas Vacation Ranch; however, they were on their way to Austin for business and needed to get on their way, promising to return soon!
Our Texas Bed and Breakfast sits on a working ranch – one with cattle and a variety of animals on its 650-acres. While here, guests enjoy the animals as much as the beautiful setting and tranquility.

The resident kangaroo of our Houston area guest ranch has wise words to impart.
Roger Roo says “Pretend every single person you meet has a sign around his or her neck saying, ‘Make me feel important!’”
We strive to make guests of our Cat Spring TX bed and breakfast feel welcome and important. Private cottages, hundreds of acres, and nearby fine dining help. We’ll help you schedule activities both on the ranch and off-site that will make your stay here special.
Thanks for the reminder, Roger!
