Unique Texas Vacation Ranch

Monday, November 29th, 2010

Guests of our Houston Texas Vacation Ranch come here because we’re unique. We’re a working cattle ranch in beautiful Central Texas, with private cabins that sleep as few as two or as many as eight people. We’re situated on more than 600-acres with rolling grasslands, ancient live oak groves, and picturesque ponds. We’re an ideal location for weddings, corporate retreats, or girlfriend getaways, offering horseback riding, archery, and a host of other activities.

When next you visit our Texas Vacation Ranch near Houston, be sure to ask about our morning feeding tours. How often in your life will you find yourself face to face with a friendly, hungry kangaroo?

This is Roger Roo. He is a special kangaroo who resides here at our guest ranch near Houston. When you stay here, you’ll have an opportunity to get close to him and learn a little about these amazing animals. Roger Roo is just one reason guest ranches like Blisswood are so special – they help you to step outside your everyday experience.

Come meet Roger Roo. You may even decide to join his fan club!

There is a special resident of our Texas Guest Ranch – Roger Roo the Kangaroo. What follows is one woman’s experience with Roger that bears repeating.

“January 13th, I drove two hours to beautiful Blisswood. Upon arrival one of the first things that caught my eye was a camel. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing here on the Texas plains! Carol took us around to view a few of the cottages and I was very patient but what I really wanted was to meet this kangaroo. So I finally blurted out…where is the kangaroo?” “Oh”, says Carol, “you want to meet Roger.” Roger! It was the first I had heard his name. A few minutes later Carol comes carrying a big pink diaper bag. She handed me the bag and says, “get him up/ he is napping.” I opened the flap and all I could see was ears, legs and tail. Roger was curled up lying on his back sound asleep. Finally he opened his eyes and slowly crawled out still half asleep and up onto my shoulder like a child waking from a nap and still wanting to be held. Well! It was love at first sight! Roger looked right in my eyes while I talked to him and just let me hold him on my lap…a perfect stranger!

After I left Blisswood (video of Roger in hand), I wanted to tell everyone about Roger. We stopped at a restaurant in San Marcos and told the waitress and several patrons about our Roger adventure, sharing the video much to everyone’s delight and amazement. The next morning I sent Carol a note and thanked her for her hospitality and asked if Roger said anything about me or if he missed me. Carol called to say she enjoyed meeting me as well and that, “You and Roger really did have a special connection.”

Fan Club 3I had to see this special kangaroo again, so I traveled back to Blisswood with my family in August. It was a glorious morning, all of us enjoying Roger and his antics. He clearly recognized me and I got several kisses.

It was hard to leave but we will be back in the Fall. Everyone should have the Roger Roo experience. One you will never forget and will want all your friends and family to enjoy.

We love that guests of our Houston area guest ranch have these kinds of experiences. We think it is what sets Blisswood b&b apart.

New Family Member at our Texas Bed and Breakfast

Friday, December 19th, 2008

We are so excited to have a new member of the Blisswood family! Welcome “Joey”, our baby Kangaroo! We are so excited to have this little guy at the ranch and think he will be a new star around here!

This little guy is only 6 months old!Right now little Joey (we haven’t picked out a name for him yet) is a lot like a little human baby: he wears diapers and likes to be held often. I carry him in a big diaper bag, to reproduce the experience of a pouch. He just likes to sleep a lot and is extremely cute! People just fall in love with him when they see him! I hope he will get along with the dogs, cats, horses, miniature donkeys, peacocks, bison and camel that already live at Lehmann Legacy Ranch.

You can see from the pictures how powerful his back legs will become! It will be fun to see him grow as the months pass! I hope you can come out to our Texas Bed and Breakfast soon and meet the new family member!

A 6 pounds, he's just like a little baby!
