Riding Lesson for Children

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Treat your child to a special holiday this spring or summer. Stay at our Central Texas vacation ranch and let us give your child horseback riding lessons.

Carol and her staff have years of experience teaching horseback riding and training horses. While it is fun to teach students of all ages, it is perhaps most rewarding to teach children how to ride.

Children are eager students. They love the horses immediately, and are gentle with them. At the same time, they are thrilled by the sense of power they feel when the horse does what they ask it to do. Horseback riding is incredibly empowering for children; it is a tremendous responsibility to have reins in hand. They’ll learn many lessons that will prove relevant in all aspects of their lives.

The horses at our Central Texas vacation ranch are gentle, and used to being ridden by all levels of rider. This is the perfect place to introduce your child to horseback riding.

Learning the ropes.

The joy on that face says it all.

Relaxing Shopping

Monday, December 14th, 2009

Christmas is around the corner, but there is still time to shop. Of course, now is the best time to avoid crowded malls, which tend to make us feel more scrooge-ish than anything else. Better to seek out interesting shops that are off the beaten path. There you will have room to breathe and let inspiration strike.

Just such a place exists close to our Houston area guest ranch.

Mustang Alley Antiques is located in an old general store between Sealy and Bellville. If you happen to be looking for cowhide this is THE place to go, but it also has other interesting items. Check out the fine collection of antique oak and walnut furniture, or look for something downright silly. This is a shopping experience that will put you in a good mood.

Instead of returning to whence you came right after shopping, why not spend a night or two at our Houston area guest ranch? Take time to treat yourself to an afternoon of horseback riding. Bring your knitting and finish that project while relaxing on the porch of your cabin. Forget about cooking for a change and enjoy a delicious meal at our Cat Spring restaurant – grilled bison and sweet potato fries anyone?

After all, you deserve a holiday, too.

A Hill Country Thanksgiving

Monday, November 9th, 2009

It is almost time for Thanksgiving, a time when friends and families come together to give thanks for the year’s bounty. This is a favorite holiday for many, yet it can be stressful for folks who enjoy gathering together many people but don’t feel up to the task of hosting.

Why not go horseback riding to your Thanksgiving Feast?

Why not go horseback riding to your Thanksgiving Feast?

If this sounds like you, why not come to the edge of Texas Hill Country and let someone else take care of Thanksgiving for you. Our Houston fine dining restaurant, Caraol’s at Cat Spring, will be serving a traditional Thanksgiving buffet from 11:00 am to 6:00 p.m on November 26, 2009.

The best part is that your whole family – and friends too – can stay at our Houston area bed and breakfast near the restaurant. Work up an appetite before the meal (while others do the cooking for you) by walking around the 600-acre ranch or enjoying trail riding Houston. Enjoy a post-meal rest (while others do the cleaning for you) in your comfortable, private lodging. Get together with extended family and friends when you like, but have your own space to return to when you need a little alone time.

This can be your best Thanksgiving ever. Don’t delay!

Reservations required for the Thanksgiving feast. Call 713-301-3235.

The Crotty Family Spends Labor Day at Texas Guest Ranch

Monday, October 19th, 2009

One of the things we like best about running a guest ranch near Houston is that we help create memorable experiences for the folks who stay here. Take the Crotty family, who have been coming to our bed and breakfast ranch for the past four years. Each trip they try something new: a different house, a new experience. This last trip, over Labor Day Weekend, they took the feeding tour – something their seven year old son found delightful. Read their own words:

“We have been going to Blisswood for the past four years, and will continue for years to come. Our son was 3 when we first went there and he still calls it ‘our ranch’. We usually take one or more of our dogs, who all love the new smells and fresh country air. It is a place for us to slow down and reconnect as a family. Being only a little over an hour outside of Houston, it is a world away from the bustle and rush of city living. The new staff are wonderful, too. And if you haven’t eaten at Carol’s restaurant, you are missing a great meal. ”

Pictured below is their son feeding Me-Me the fallow deer and Willie the Camel.

What an experience

Create lasting memories for you and your family. Stay at our unique Cat Springs Texas Guest Ranch, where horseback riding or feeding exotic animals will help you reconnect with nature.
