Dude Ranch Adventures – Cat Spring, TX

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Welcoming Great New Friends from Near and Far for Our Dude Ranch Adventures

A couple of months back, we had the absolute pleasure of having a guest from Malaysia who came to stay with us at Blisswood Bed & Breakfast. His son was getting married in South Texas, so his future daughter-in-law made special reservations to give her new father-in-law a real Texas experience. Our Malaysian visitor had a great time horseback riding, axe throwing, firing off a few rounds on the shooting range, and of course relaxing at our authentic Texas ranch.

The package his family reserved for him was part of our Dude Ranch Adventure Package, which is a great way for anyone to come stay in Texas and experience life as it should be on an authentic Texas ranch setting. The Dude Ranch Adventure includes horseback riding, a tour of the barn, trapshooting, archery, and a Tomahawk throwing lesson. It feels good to be out in the fresh air on our 650-acre ranch, even if you’re just visiting from nearby Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and other cities in Texas, or much further, such as our new friend from Malaysia.

South Texas Getaways


While he was here, our guest also dined at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant, where he was treated to a Texas BBQ dinner unlike anything he had ever tasted before. Oh yes, we gave him a “taste” of the Texas Wild West! Turns out, most everyone has a cowboy hiding somewhere down inside of their soul somewhere.


Texas Dude Ranch Adventure Getaways Start Here

Come to think of it, if you want something really cool and different to do while in Houston for business or pleasure, the Texas Dude Ranch Adventure is just about as good as it gets. We’re only an hour west of Houston in Cat Spring, Texas. Tourists come during the holiday spikes in spring, summer and autumn, or during the famous Rodeo week and after school lets out in late May.


Texas Dude Ranch

No matter if you are coming from Texas or somewhere within the U.S., or internationally, Blisswood Bed & Breakfast intends to make your Dude Ranch experience in Texas truly exceptional in every way.

A Mother’s Day Mother / Daughter Getaway

Monday, March 21st, 2011

What would your mom like for Mother’s Day? If she’s like my mom, she would most like to spend a little time with her daughter. For all you daughters who live far from your mothers, this blog is for you.

Consider treating your mother to a Mother / Daughter Getaway at our Texas Guest Ranch for Mother’s Day this year.

Mothers and Daughters enjoy time together at our Texas Vacation Ranch.

Our Texas Vacation Ranch Mother / Daughter Getaway provides a wonderful opportunity for the two of you to spend time together. Enjoy a horseback ride and a picnic in the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake. Unwind with massages. Linger over a gourmet dinner at nearby Carol’s at Cat Spring Houston Area Restaurant. You can even take a thrilling, scenic balloon ride together over Central Texas. Just think what broad swaths of fields covered in wildflowers will look like from the air.

The best part of the gift will simply be spending time with you. How often do you get to appreciate each other as adults and individuals? How often do you get to spend time together, just the two of you?

Since schedules are hard to align and you may have your own children who want to see you on Mother’s Day, you need not schedule your Mother / Daughter Getaway for the weekend of May 8, 2011. Any time will do, before or after Mother’s Day. It’s the time together that’s important.


Loyal Guests Rewarded at Texas B&B

Monday, February 28th, 2011

For every four nights you stay at our Central Texas Bed and Breakfast during a one-year period, you’ll receive one weekday night free. Extend one of your trips to our Houston Texas Guest Ranch, or come back another time – the offer is good for six months.

This is a small way to thank our loyal guests who stay with us again and again. So come with your sweetie, your family, or your friends. Ride horses, read a book, or get married. It doesn’t matter what you do, so long as you have a wonderful time.

Bring your daughter for her birthday, like Christine's 15th Birthday Surprise.

Weekday Travel Special at Texas Guest Ranch

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Our Central Texas Guest Ranch is currently offering a Weekday Special: a discount on two-night stays at the ranch Sunday through Thursday.

Traveling during the week has a few excellent benefits. Everything is less crowded (not that crowds are generally a problem here), and there is little chance you’ll be caught in Friday evening traffic. But best of all, you will feel like you are on a true holiday. Weekends away are glorious of course, but weekdays away are a vacation.

The next time you feel the need for some rest and relaxation, consider taking advantage of the midweek special at our Texas vacation ranch.

A tropical oasis awaits at our Texas B&B.

Not available during peak season, holidays, spring break, and special events such as Antiques Weeks. Not available for groups/corporate retreats. Not available for on-line bookings. Excludes our continental breakfast. Coffee & tea are included. Call for more details and reservations 713-301-3235.

Grandcation at Houston Texas Guest Ranch

Monday, October 11th, 2010

Our Texas Guest Ranch outside Houston is an ideal place for extended families to meet, and we’ve created a Grandcation Special with just that in mind.

The bond between grandparents and grandchildren is special and unique. Grandchildren can help grandparents step out of their routines and try new experiences. Grandparents can help children learn to be more patient and understanding. Bringing this relationship to a new place – one ensconced in nature and filled with fresh air, animals, and vast open spaces – adds to it.

Grandson loves horseback riding.

Summer Special at Texas Guest Ranch

Monday, August 16th, 2010

There are a few weeks left to take advantage of the Hot Summer Special at our Houston Texas Guest Ranch. Guests who stay for two nights (Sunday – Thursday) between now and September 2 enjoy 20% off; stay for a third night at 50% off. In addition, you’ll be automatically entered to win two nights at the Legendary Inns of Newport, in Newport Rhode Island.

Take a few days off to enjoy the last weeks of summer. Explore the 650-acres of our Central Texas Vacation Ranch on horseback. Share a romantic picnic – complete with champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries – in our gazebo on the lake. Try your hand at archery, or simply curl up with a good book on your shaded porch.

Cook for yourself in your cabin, or wander over to Carol’s Restaurant, which features amazing Texas cuisine. Tuck into sweet potato fries, cool off with chilled watermelon gazpacho, and try a Cornish Game Hen with jalapeno cream. The atmosphere is always fun and casual, and guests of the bed and breakfast rub shoulders with locals.

Come for a romantic getaway with the person you love, or bring your whole family. Children will love exploring the ranch before heading back to school, and parents will love having the kids to themselves. Couples may find romance in a hot-air balloon ride over the lovely Texas landscape, or walking hand in hand under the oaks.

It doesn’t really matter what you do once you are here – what matters is that you come in the first place.

Are You Expecting a Spring Baby?

Monday, March 1st, 2010

We are all anticipating the rebirth of spring here at our Houston area guest ranch, which makes our thoughts turn to our Babymoon special.

Be pampered before you break out the pampers.

The arrival of a child is a blessed event, and one that will be remembered and celebrated the rest of your lives. The weeks and months after the birth of your child will be filled with many joyous moments, along with many sleepless ones. The meaning of time will change. Some days you’ll feel triumphant simply because you managed to take a shower, make your bed and prepare dinner. Other days, you won’t.

We can’t make everything go smoothly for you after the baby is born. We can, however, help you to feel relaxed and pampered before baby arrives, which can make a big difference during delivery and those first weeks.

Our Babymoon special delivers “Bliss Before Baby”. When the nursery is ready and you have nothing to do but wait, head to our Houston area b&b for two nights of relaxing romance. Enjoy sparkling cider, chocolate-dipped strawberries (eat enough for two!), and flowers. Treat yourselves to a picnic at the Gazebo by Enchanted Lake, and linger over a gourmet dinner at our Cat Spring restaurant. Remove all stress with hand or foot relfexology, and convince the future dad to have a massage. After all, dads bend over changing tables, too.

Take this time for yourselves, even if you have other children. As families expand, sometimes mom and dad can forget that one of the most important things they can do for their family is to care of themselves.
