Family Friendly Spring Break in Texas

Monday, February 18th, 2013

We’ve almost made it through another winter! And what better way to celebrate the arrival of Spring than with a fun-filled family vacation? If you’re looking to plan a trip this spring, BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch is the ideal destination for a family friendly spring break in Texas.  Here at BlissWood, you can relax, enjoy the great outdoors, and create some lasting memories for you and your family.

You certainly won’t have time to be bored when you vacation at BlissWood.  We offer plenty of activities for guests of all ages, so every member of your family will have a fun-filled stay!

Moms and dads can sit back and enjoy the peaceful serenity of BlissWood – our scenic 650-acre working ranch is the perfect place to get away from it all.  And you won’t have to worry about entertaining the rest of the family. There’s plenty here to keep the little ones busy!  Your kids can enjoy a wide variety of activities on our Texas ranch.


There’s a lot of exploring to do on our ranch. You can always take a nature walk or go for a long bike ride around the property. And for the adventurous members of your family, we offer horseback riding lessons.  But if you’re interested in something a little more low-key, we also have catch-and-release bass fishing.  Or go ahead and plan a canoe trip for the whole family.  And for the animal lovers, don’t forget to take part in our animal feeding tour – kids love getting up close and personal with our animals!

And best of all, when you book three nights during the week of March 10-14th, you’ll get the third night at a 50 percent discount!  Start planning your family’s spring break today!  You can check availability online or give us a call at 713-301-3235.

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.

Give Romance for Valentine’s

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Now is the right time to plan a Romantic Weekend at our Texas guest ranch with your sweetie. After all, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner; can you think of a better way to say “I love you” than to whisk your darling off her/his feet for a night or two?

Have you ever spent the night on a Texas guest ranch? It is incredibly peaceful here. You’ll drift off to sleep listening to the breeze caressing live oaks. You’ll awaken to birdsong. You’ll find the time and the space to truly appreciate one another.

We offer a number of guest ranch specials to tempt the romantic in you; the Romance Special and the Valentine’s Day Special seem appropriate right now, but it may also be the right time to renew your vows, treat your sweetie to a horseback ride and picnic, or surprise him/her with a massage. We will strive to meet your romance requirements, whether they be champagne in the room, a horseback ride/wine picnic, or a dinner out.

Some people place a great deal of importance on Valentine’s Day, and some don’t. Yet everyone appreciates it when the person they love takes the time to plan something special. So why not do that this year?

At Blisswood Bed and Breakfast, even sitting on your porch is relaxing and romantic. So take a break from the daily grind and have a romantic few days here.
