A Completely Unique Corporate Retreat

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

A unique company deserves a unique corporate retreat, especially when they’re bringing together employees from all over the world. And that’s exactly what this international corporation got when they decided to host their gathering at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast.

Employees from Canada, Australia, France, and Houston journeyed to our 650-acre Cat Spring haven for three days of cooking, wine tasting, trapshooting, archery, tomahawk throwing, horseback riding, and more. And they did it all while competing on teams. Not a bad way to enjoy a corporate retreat.

Here are a few more pictures of their unique corporate retreat experience…

BlissWood Crew Enjoys Horseback Ride

BlissWood Horseback Ride

BlissWood Horseback Ride

It’s fun and relaxing at BlissWood, whether you are working or playing.  Our BlissWood Crew gets to experience what guests experience at our Texas Bed and Breakfast, and recently our great crew took a long horseback ride and found out why guests enjoy their rides and come back for more.    Memories are made and savored, and especially for one of our crew, Jan from Canada.  She said she will never forget this wonderful experience on horseback, a great Texas memory to take with her on her continuing trek.

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.

Give Romance for Valentine’s

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Now is the right time to plan a Romantic Weekend at our Texas guest ranch with your sweetie. After all, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner; can you think of a better way to say “I love you” than to whisk your darling off her/his feet for a night or two?

Have you ever spent the night on a Texas guest ranch? It is incredibly peaceful here. You’ll drift off to sleep listening to the breeze caressing live oaks. You’ll awaken to birdsong. You’ll find the time and the space to truly appreciate one another.

We offer a number of guest ranch specials to tempt the romantic in you; the Romance Special and the Valentine’s Day Special seem appropriate right now, but it may also be the right time to renew your vows, treat your sweetie to a horseback ride and picnic, or surprise him/her with a massage. We will strive to meet your romance requirements, whether they be champagne in the room, a horseback ride/wine picnic, or a dinner out.

Some people place a great deal of importance on Valentine’s Day, and some don’t. Yet everyone appreciates it when the person they love takes the time to plan something special. So why not do that this year?

The Perfect Proposal

Monday, December 7th, 2009

There are as many ways to propose a marriage as there are future brides and grooms. Sometimes proposals are spontaneous, born out of the sudden realization that you must spend your life with the person before you. Often, however, at least one person plans a proposal, selecting the location and time with great care. I believe there is a certain amount of superstition around marriage proposals – the belief that if everything goes just right, she’ll say yes and the marriage will be blessed.

We were happy that recently Joe selected our Texas Guest Ranch as the place to pop the question to Amy. Amy obviously knew about their weekend together, but Joe kept the proposal a secret until the moment he asked for her hand. Joe made some arrangements to help set the proper mood: wrangler Carol guided the couple on a horseback ride to Enchanted Lake, where a bottle of champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries were waiting for them in the Gazebo.

Our Texas Guest Ranch offers several special packages for folks with marriage on the mind. There is a package for guests of the ranch, and another for couples who want a special location for the proposal, but plan to return home at the end of the day.

We understand how important this moment is, and we strive to create a unique and private experience for everyone.

Scrapbooking

Monday, October 26th, 2009

Our Guest Ranch outside Houston is a perfect place to gather with friends and get serious about scrapbooking. This past weekend, we had a great group of gals here for just that purpose.

We have ten cabins/cottages available, scattered throughout the guest ranch, several of which can comfortably house eight people. No need to try to cram all of your scrapbooking materials into one small room – take over the whole house! Heck, book all the cabins and take over the whole ranch. It could be a scrapbooker’s paradise!

When your eyes tire or you need to stretch out a bit, we have miles of trails for you. You can even mix things up with horseback rides if you like, or take the feed tour and visit the animals. Refreshed and invigorated, you will return to your work with renewed creativity.

Such a lovely place to scrapbook
