A Mother’s Day Mother / Daughter Getaway

Monday, March 21st, 2011

What would your mom like for Mother’s Day? If she’s like my mom, she would most like to spend a little time with her daughter. For all you daughters who live far from your mothers, this blog is for you.

Consider treating your mother to a Mother / Daughter Getaway at our Texas Guest Ranch for Mother’s Day this year.

Mothers and Daughters enjoy time together at our Texas Vacation Ranch.

Our Texas Vacation Ranch Mother / Daughter Getaway provides a wonderful opportunity for the two of you to spend time together. Enjoy a horseback ride and a picnic in the Gazebo at Enchanted Lake. Unwind with massages. Linger over a gourmet dinner at nearby Carol’s at Cat Spring Houston Area Restaurant. You can even take a thrilling, scenic balloon ride together over Central Texas. Just think what broad swaths of fields covered in wildflowers will look like from the air.

The best part of the gift will simply be spending time with you. How often do you get to appreciate each other as adults and individuals? How often do you get to spend time together, just the two of you?

Since schedules are hard to align and you may have your own children who want to see you on Mother’s Day, you need not schedule your Mother / Daughter Getaway for the weekend of May 8, 2011. Any time will do, before or after Mother’s Day. It’s the time together that’s important.

Texas BB Welcomes Guests from the Skies

Monday, October 18th, 2010

We never know who will stop by our Houston area guest ranch. Read on and discover how some folks recently dropped in on us.

One of those surprise Texas thunderstorms appeared, and a helicopter was heard overhead, very close by. After the whirling sound suddenly stopped, a ranch hand ran to the pasture and found the helicopter on the ground; the two men in the helicopter had to quickly find a place to land, as they were in the skies in the rain, with no doors. They put a tarp over the copter and got a tour of the ranch until the thunderstorm passed. Of course, they were invited to ride some horses, eat at Carol’s Cat Spring Restaurant, and spend the night at BlissWood Texas Vacation Ranch; however, they were on their way to Austin for business and needed to get on their way, promising to return soon!

One rainy day, a helicopter and passengers dropped in to say hello.

Fall Creek Vintner’s Dinner in Cat Spring

Monday, September 20th, 2010

On September 29, 2010, Carol’s Houston Area Fine Dining Restaurant will host the Fall Creek Vintner’s Dinner. Plan a mid-week getaway around this dinner now; take advantage of the Mid-week special at our Texas guest ranch and receive a discount on a stay of two or more nights.

Enjoy Award Winning Meritus at the Fall Creek Vintner's Dinner.

Fall Creek Winery is located in Tow, Texas. This Hill Country winery was created by Ed and Susan Auler in 1975, after the Aulers visited France and noticed a strong similarity between some French wine country and the Texas Hill Country in which they lived. Fall Creek has been producing award winning wines since 1982 – a testament to the accuracy of the Auler’s observation.

The Fall Creek Vintner’s Dinner starts at 7pm and costs $79 per person (excepting tax and gratuity). The menu features mouthwatering combinations paired with Fall Creek wines. Diners will feast on seared scallops and sip Sauvignon Blanc; they’ll dine on succulent roasted antelope paired with the award-winning Meritus. Five courses. Five wines. Heaven.

Compliment the meal with a stay at the adjacent Hill Country vacation ranch, located just a few miles from the restaurant. You won’t want to travel any farther than that after such a feast.
