A Vacation Like No Other

Friday, January 31st, 2014

You’ll find a wide variety of options if you want to get away in Texas. We all have our own idea of the perfect escape. People choose to stay at BlissWood because we’re different. We’re a working cattle ranch as well as a beautiful B&B. BlissWood is the place to go for a unique ranch vacation in Texas.

There aren’t many inns where you have the option to do a little trapshooting. But that’s just one of the many onsite activities we offer here at BlissWood. And you’d probably get yourself kicked out of some B&Bs if you started throwing tomahawks! Not here. We offer a totally unique experience at BlissWood. And that’s what our guests love about their visits.

In addition to trapshooting and tomahawk throwing, you’ll find lots of other activities including horseback riding, archery, bass fishing, biking, and more. There’s never a dull moment at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch. From hiking and biking to animal feeding, we offer a totally one of a kind experience.

BlissWood is not overly formal or the least bit stuffy. Quite the contrary. We offer a relaxing atmosphere for people who like to get outdoors, kick back, and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Animals abound at our ranch, so be prepared to make some furry friends when you stroll around our property. That’s just part of the charm.

Of course if you’re coming for a special occasion, you can certainly enjoy a romantic picnic or even a candlelit dinner at our restaurant. Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant is a great setting for birthday and anniversary dinners. We also provide a perfectly unique location for weddings, retreats, reunions and girlfriend getaways.

You can give us a call at 713-301-3235 or check availability online. Start planning your perfect Texas vacation today.

Catch Some Fun (and Fish) at BlissWood!

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

We love summer, and it’s not over yet!  We have fun all year long at BlissWood Bed & Breakfast Ranch, but there’s nothing like a warm summer day for relaxing at the lake, enjoying a picnic, or playing some disc golf.  At BlissWood, we combine a real B&B experience with all the action of a family resort. You can have tons of fun at our Texas inn fishing, biking, and more. So if you’re looking for a peaceful getaway and great onsite activities, come on down to Cat Spring, Texas and pay us a visit!

When you stay with us, you might want to pack your bicycle. The ranch has plenty of room and easy terrain for a leisurely bike ride. You can even explore the nearby country roads if you want a longer ride. We also offer bicycle rentals here for just 35 dollars a day.  Of course, there’s no charge if you bring your own wheels!

And for many of us, nothing says summer like relaxing by the water and whiling away the hours with a fishing pole in hand. If that sounds like your idea of a perfect day, you’ll enjoy some catch-and-release bass fishing in our stocked lakes.  Again, we can supply the gear, or you can go ahead and bring your own.

Just the other week, a couple of our guests had an exciting day at the lake! This big bass tried to get away – he squirmed right off the hook. But that didn’t stop these determined young fishermen.  One of them actually jumped in the water and caught him by hand!  We’re glad he did, because it made for an excellent photo op and fun memories!

If you’re interested in booking your own fun-filled getaway, you can check availability online or just give us a call at 713-301-3235.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Horseback Riding Near Houston

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Blisswood is the perfect place for Houston horseback riding, since we are just an hour from the big city. Bring your own horse to the ranch, or use one of our South American gaited Paso Finos. We have over 600 idyllic acres and miles of trails on which you can lose yourself – although we won’t let you get lost. All rides are guided, and our guides will lead you through mature oak forests, across creeks and through meadows. Perhaps you’ll stop for a spell near a pond, to rest and relax. Lessons are also available, in the ring.
