Historic Texas

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Texas is a great state with a rich history. Located in lovely Texas Hill Country, our ranch in Cat Spring is just one of the many charming stops you might make on a historic tour of Texas.

Take a look at Sealy, Texas, if you will. Formed as a railroad town in 1879, our neighbors in the nearby city of Sealy recently received a Texas Main Street Program Grant. The grant was presented by Anita Perry, wife of Texas Governor Rick Perry. Along with a friend, BlissWood owner Carol Davis had the privilege of presenting the Texas and US colors on horseback.

Sealy was fortunate enough to be selected to participate in the Texas Main Street Program. The goal of the TMSP is “to provide technical expertise, resources and support for Texas communities in the preservation and revitalization of historic downtowns and commercial neighborhood districts in accord with the National Main Street Four Point Approach® of organization, economic restructuring, design and promotion.”

Across the great state of Texas, there are 84 official Texas Main Street communities. The program works with towns and cities of every size, ranging in population from 2,000 to over 200,000. And all that work is paying off. Texas Main Street communities have seen significant reinvestment into their historic downtowns.

It’s extremely important to support and invest in the downtown areas of our Texas cities. Downtown revitalization is key when it comes to preserving the economic and social health of a community. A well-preserved historic downtown is part of any city’s charm. It’s also a valuable source of cultural heritage.

We look forward to seeing the positive impact the program will have on the beautiful city of Sealy, and we’re honored to have been a part of it! Next time you take a trip to BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch, be sure to stop by Sealy!

Autumn Wine Tasting in Texas Hill Country

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Our Texas vacation ranch in Cat Spring sits on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, an area with more than two dozen wineries. Autumn is the quintessential season for wine tasting; the fall harvest and the fresh scent of the fall crush makes us crave a taste of that magical fluid aging in oak. We find ourselves drawn to visit any winery we pass, eager to replenish wine cellars slowly emptied during the past year.

Enjoy a glass of Texas wine at our Houston area fine dining restaurant.

Plan to visit several Texas wineries during a relaxing weekend or mid-week holiday at our vacation ranch Houston area. It’s fun to hit the wine trail with no specific destination in mind. You may stumble across Rosemary’s Vineyard and Winery, in nearby La Grange, where you’ll sip a variety of wines in a tasting room surrounded by acres of Muscadine grape vines. (more…)

Texas Bed and Breakfast: Two Weeks Till Spring!

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

We have another adorable member of the Lehmann Legacy ranch family! This little guy is one of our miniature donkeys. We have a lot of animals around the farm, so be prepared for some fun when you come to Blisswood for your Texas Weekend Getaway!

I’m not sure how much you know about the Hill Country of Texas, but it is an amazingly beautiful area of the state and the nation. We have rolling hills and spring-fed lakes and rivers. In the summer time enjoy cool rains that stir up dust and cool off your skin. Watch lighting roll across the landscape and cuddle with your loved one during the thunder! Then, the next day, take a horseback ride and explore the landscape. All part of a Texas Romantic Getaway at Blisswood Bed and Breakfast.

With so much to look forward to, what are you waiting for? Use one of the links above to explore our site, or, explore what Blisswood at Lehmann has to offer as an outdoor Texas wedding location.
