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

BlissWood B&B Ranch: Corporate Retreats Houston Style

Monday, January 5th, 2015

Does your team lack enthusiasm and passion? Are your sales suffering as a result of employee burnout or negativity? Ignite the fire with a Business Retreats near Houstoncorporate retreat, Houston style!

Does Your Staff Have Anything to Look Forward to in 2015?

One major reason for employee burnout is simply from doing the same job, day in and day out, with no hope for anything different. As a leader of your organization, it is your job to instill confidence in the workplace, as well as reversing any negativity that may result from boredom or complacency. When employees are miserable, this can translate to lower sales, more customer service issues and complaints, as well as high turnover among staff members.

It costs companies a lot of money to train new employees, not to mention the high costs of the hiring process itself. Wouldn’t it be better to spend those resources on a Houston corporate retreat? Give your staff a reason to love working for you, while improving and strengthening your organization.

Why a Texas Corporate Retreat?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Texas Corporate RetreatsDue to the rapid increase in the speed and variety of communication, the world of business has become a whirlwind of meetings, emails, phone calls, video chats, text messages, and more.

Yet, with all these forms of high-speed communication, we never get to sit down together and really talk.

Only in a calm, relaxed environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, can we take the time to get to know the people we work with, learn their strengths and our own, and build a truly cohesive team.

That’s what corporate retreats are all about—stepping out of the office, relaxing with your coworkers and employees, and taking a good hard look at your business from an outside perspective. This is where new, ground-breaking ideas and stronger business teams are formed.

A World of Possibilities

No other place in the entire United States can offer you the fresh air and space you need for your corporate retreat than Texas—particularly in a place that’s away from the big city.

Imagine, for a moment, riding on horseback through rolling meadows and tall oak forests, across bubbling creeks and past serene ponds with the people you work with everyday, building stronger bonds through shared experiences that don’t involve client meetings and conference calls.

Maybe you would enjoy discussing the latest industry trends affecting your business while fishing for bass and catfish in a fully stocked pond, or building team cohesiveness by working cattle on a real Texas ranch.

On our Texas ranch, you can do it all:

  • Horseback riding
  • Archery
  • Trapshooting
  • Tomahawk/knife throwing
  • Paddle boat/john boat racing
  • Frisbee golfing
  • Catfish and bass fishing
  • Scavenger hunting
  • Working cattle
  • And more!

Every activity is designed to provide you with an opportunity to connect with your coworkers in a peaceful setting and focus on the goals that your team needs to accomplish.

Business Success at BlissWood B&B

Why not escape from the stress of the big city for awhile and reconnect with your coworkers? You will have a stronger, more formidable team because of it with new ideas and lower stress levels to take back to the office with you.

Let us help you design a custom package that caters to your next corporate retreat. We have detail-oriented event coordinators on hand to help with planning and to make your corporate retreat a fruitful success.

BlissWood Bed and Breakfast is a great place for brainstorming, team building, and having fun. Accommodations include 14 houses, cabins, and suites and plenty of open space on our 650-acre working ranch.

Snow in Texas? Sometimes.

Snow in Texas? Yes, and frost, too!

A couple of weeks ago, guests at our Texas Bed and Breakfast woke up to a frosty morning. It was a little early for a White Christmas, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t appreciated. One of the benefits to living in a warm climate is that you can greet the arrival of snow with a sincere smile.

It’s always a treat to be able to use our fireplaces, and this was one of those times. Smoke wafted out of many chimneys that weekend, giving a pleasant, woody fragrance to the air.

Our Houston area lodging was hosting a corporate retreat when the snows started to fall. The group proved they could be flexible, opting out of scheduled paddle boat races and enjoying indoor team building activities instead.

Balmy weather is back, but we are keeping firewood on hand, just in case.
