A Unique Family Vacation Destination

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

Summertime is just around the corner, which conjures up memories of good old-fashioned family vacations. Remember packing up the car and waving goodbye to the house?  It’s a wonderful way to spend time with your loved ones and create some lasting memories.  Our charming Texas ranch is a unique family vacation destination that truly has something for everyone. Just an hour outside of Houston, Texas, this peaceful country setting is the perfect place to unwind and spend some quality time with your family.

And while BlissWood is a great place for mom and dad to kick back and relax, there’s plenty to keep you busy while you’re here!  We offer a wide variety of exciting outdoor activities that will entertain the whole family during your stay.  And with 650 acres of land, there’s plenty of room for adventures.

A family vacation at BlissWood is a truly unforgettable experience. When you visit our ranch, you can bike, fish, hike, and so much more. If you’re looking for a real Texas ranch experience, we also offer horseback riding. You can even try your hand at archery or just paddle around the lake on a Jon boat or a canoe. Whatever you do, it’s an experience your family will be talking about for years to come.

With all the activity, you’ll definitely work up a healthy appetite.  So make sure you pay a visit (or two) to Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant during your stay. Carol’s delivers fine dining cuisine in a friendly, casual atmosphere.  The menu offers an array of top notch dishes, with everything from juicy steaks to classic pastas. And don’t worry – we have a kid’s menu, too.

Start planning your trip today! You can check availability online or give us a call at 713-301-3235.  We’d love to help you have the family vacation of a lifetime.

 

Guest Ranch Welcomes Managers

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Debby and Ralph are the managers of our Houston Texas guest ranch. Debby has a great deal of experience in hospitality, while Ralph has had a varied career that includes construction and maintenance. In short, they are perfect for Blisswood. Ralph makes sure everything on the ranch is ship-shape, while Debby dedicates herself to ensuring that guests of our Bed and Breakfast Cat Spring Texas have all they need.

Both of these are big jobs. Our ranch is spread over 650-acres, and our B&B consists of ten turn-of-the-century homes. In addition, we offer many activities on the ranch for our guests, be it horseback riding, archery, fishing, or romantic picnics at the lake gazebo. Guests may choose to do nothing more than relax on the porch of their vacation cabin, or they may fill their time here with a host of activities. Debby and Ralph will help all happen smoothly.

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.

Archery at our Texas Bed and Breakfast

Monday, July 26th, 2010

Archery may be the world’s oldest sport. What started as a clever tool for obtaining food has evolved into an extremely graceful sport (of course, people still bow hunt, as well). Guests of our Houston area bed and breakfast may now hone their archery skills on the ranch.

Pictured below are Matt and Rose, two WWOOFERS from South Africa and New Zealand respectively. Matt’s father owns a competitive archery range in South Africa, and while staying here at our Texas guest ranch, Matt set up a professional archery range for us.

We happily welcome Wwoofers and Workampers here at our Houston ranch. To learn more about these programs, visit WWOOF and Workamper.

A graceful sport.
