Why a Texas Corporate Retreat?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Texas Corporate RetreatsDue to the rapid increase in the speed and variety of communication, the world of business has become a whirlwind of meetings, emails, phone calls, video chats, text messages, and more.

Yet, with all these forms of high-speed communication, we never get to sit down together and really talk.

Only in a calm, relaxed environment, away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, can we take the time to get to know the people we work with, learn their strengths and our own, and build a truly cohesive team.

That’s what corporate retreats are all about—stepping out of the office, relaxing with your coworkers and employees, and taking a good hard look at your business from an outside perspective. This is where new, ground-breaking ideas and stronger business teams are formed.

A World of Possibilities

No other place in the entire United States can offer you the fresh air and space you need for your corporate retreat than Texas—particularly in a place that’s away from the big city.

Imagine, for a moment, riding on horseback through rolling meadows and tall oak forests, across bubbling creeks and past serene ponds with the people you work with everyday, building stronger bonds through shared experiences that don’t involve client meetings and conference calls.

Maybe you would enjoy discussing the latest industry trends affecting your business while fishing for bass and catfish in a fully stocked pond, or building team cohesiveness by working cattle on a real Texas ranch.

On our Texas ranch, you can do it all:

  • Horseback riding
  • Archery
  • Trapshooting
  • Tomahawk/knife throwing
  • Paddle boat/john boat racing
  • Frisbee golfing
  • Catfish and bass fishing
  • Scavenger hunting
  • Working cattle
  • And more!

Every activity is designed to provide you with an opportunity to connect with your coworkers in a peaceful setting and focus on the goals that your team needs to accomplish.

Unforgettable Guests at BlissWood

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Everyone who finds their way to our Texas Bed & Breakfast is enjoyable. Some folks stand out more than others. We recently had a wonderful couple here, Pris and Jesse, who found Blisswood on line. Pris turned out to have a great eye for photography; she sent me some photos, which I share below. Pris & Jesse also enjoyed horseback riding around the ranch and our Official BlissWood Photographer, Skeeter Hagler, captured the moments for them.  More relaxation came with a wonderful couples massage, right in their own lodging.

Here is what Pris had to say about their stay:  “My husband and I just returned from a romantic Valentine’s weekend at Blisswood Bed and Breakfast, Cat Spring, Texas. Blisswood had so much to offer to help us relax and reconnect. I loved not having a TV and no other distractions because we were fully able to enjoy each other’s company. I highly recommend purchasing the picnic lunch at the Enchanted Lake! It was a most peaceful, relaxing, and delicious lunch, and it included a bottle of wine we thoroughly enjoyed. We brought our bikes with us and enjoyed riding all around the ranch, where I got some great photos! We also purchased a couples massage where they came to our cabin, it was amazing! Carol prides herself in giving her guests a great experience and her manager Debbie is so accommodating. Carol also has several exotic animals that you can help feed which was really cool! I even got to pet her kangaroo! We are planning to go back with our kids in the spring when the bluebonnets are in bloom. If you want to take a step back in time where you can enjoy nature, I highly recommend Blisswood Texas guest ranch. Oh, for some great food don’t forget to head to Carol’s at Cat Spring; you won’t be disappointed!”

Thanks Pris and Jesse! We look forward to meeting your kids.
