Unplug at Our Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

“Unplug’’ used to mean switching off the radio and turning off the TV. These days, many of us feel inundated by the constant barrage of information from our smartphones and other devices. That’s why it’s important to unplug from time to time – to go low-tech or no-tech for a weekend.

Blisswood – a Texas Hill Country bed and breakfast on a working ranch an hour west of Houston, Texas, is a great place to rest, relax, renew the spirit, and be present. Connect with our natural surroundings instead of your Facebook friends and Twitter followers!

These pictured friends and guests came from the city to our Texas Hill Country to “unplug” for a weekend. They stayed at the Lanai House at Blisswood’s Oasis, our sister property. The Lanai House features one bedroom, a large living area overlooking waterfall and pond, a bathroom with jacuzzi tub and a fully equipped kitchen. The one thing it doesn’t have is a TV!

Among the things guests can do to “unplug” at Blisswood:

Ride a horse. Saddle up and enjoy a horseback ride. Spread over 650 acres, there is plenty of scenery to take in. All rides are guided, and the cost is $69 per guest for a one-hour ride. Visit the Activities at the Ranch section of our website for age restrictions and other information.

Take a walk or hike. You might catch a glimpse of grazing deer or a herd of American bison. Animals abound on the ranch. Besides horses (naturally!), you might also see miniature donkeys and peacocks.

Enjoy catch-and-release bass fishing.  Fishing enthusiasts can catch-and-release bass in the ranch’s stocked lakes. If you bring your own gear, the cost is $29 per person for 3 hours. If you need to rent gear, the cost is $49 per person for 3 hours.

Have a picnic. Give us a call, and we’ll be happy to make arrangements and pack a picnic for you to enjoy at the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake, or elsewhere on our property.

Dine at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant. The dress is casual, the mood is country, and the menu and food are classy. If you like Texas beef, you’ve come to the right place. Carol’s also offers chops, seafood and pasta – something for every taste and craving.

Explore Cat Spring. Cat Spring, in Austin County, is one of the first German/American settlements in Texas. History abounds here, and opportunities for “retail therapy’’ include several antiques shops. Learn more at the official Cat Spring website.

Treat yourself to a massage. In-room massages are available – all we ask is that you make arrangements in advance. Please visit the Weekend Getaways in Texas – Specials & Packages section of our website or call for more detailed information.

Essayist, novelist, and travel writer Pico Iyer has said of our busy lives: “The more ways we have to connect, the more many of us seem desperate to unplug.’’

Texas Elopement Packages Found at Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Texas Elopement PackagesWeddings take considerable time and effort to plan, and many brides and grooms don’t want to say “I Do’’ to the stresses and pressures involved. Let’s elope, they say. Let’s avoid the hassles of planning a wedding.

To the rescue: all-inclusive Texas elopement packages offered and perfected at our Texas Hill Country Wedding Venue.

Our Romantic Texas Hill Country Bed and Breakfast is situated on a 650-acre working ranch an hour west of Houston in Cat Spring, Texas. With the Texas Hill Country as a backdrop, it’s a perfect setting for elopements, Texas weddings, or a simple romantic weekend getaway.

Richard and Joy didn’t have much time to plan a wedding. The bride is a nurse with the Air Force, serving in Afghanistan. BlissWood took care of all the elopement details: the flowers, the ceremony, the cake, the romantic accommodations.

The couple was married October 6, 2012, in an intimate ceremony at the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake. They exchanged their vows before BlissWood owner Carol Davis, who is also an ordained minister.

They enjoyed champagne, a gourmet dinner at Carol’s Restaurant, a Cat Spring Favorite, and a “tropical’’ mini honeymoon at Kit’s Bungalow, one of the options nearby at The Oasis at BlissWood. The Oasis is a tropical setting among the rolling prairies of Texas Hill Country. It truly is an oasis, with a waterfall, orchids in bloom and scenting the air and a small, unheated pool.

Skeeter Hagler, BlissWood’s official photographer and Pulitzer Prize Winner, captured many moments of the couple’s idyllic elopement, which they will have for the rest of their lives.

A wedding at BlissWood – from intimate elopements for two to elaborate events for dozens of guests – is an affair to remember.

Give us a call today at 713-301-3235 to start planning your elopement, wedding, or vow renewal event.
