Catch Some Fun (and Fish) at BlissWood!

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

We love summer, and it’s not over yet!  We have fun all year long at BlissWood Bed & Breakfast Ranch, but there’s nothing like a warm summer day for relaxing at the lake, enjoying a picnic, or playing some disc golf.  At BlissWood, we combine a real B&B experience with all the action of a family resort. You can have tons of fun at our Texas inn fishing, biking, and more. So if you’re looking for a peaceful getaway and great onsite activities, come on down to Cat Spring, Texas and pay us a visit!

When you stay with us, you might want to pack your bicycle. The ranch has plenty of room and easy terrain for a leisurely bike ride. You can even explore the nearby country roads if you want a longer ride. We also offer bicycle rentals here for just 35 dollars a day.  Of course, there’s no charge if you bring your own wheels!

And for many of us, nothing says summer like relaxing by the water and whiling away the hours with a fishing pole in hand. If that sounds like your idea of a perfect day, you’ll enjoy some catch-and-release bass fishing in our stocked lakes.  Again, we can supply the gear, or you can go ahead and bring your own.

Texas inn fishing

Just the other week, a couple of our guests had an exciting day at the lake! This big bass tried to get away – he squirmed right off the hook. But that didn’t stop these determined young fishermen.  One of them actually jumped in the water and caught him by hand!  We’re glad he did, because it made for an excellent photo op and fun memories!

If you’re interested in booking your own fun-filled getaway, you can check availability online or just give us a call at 713-301-3235.  We look forward to hearing from you!

A Fun-Filled Getaway in Texas Hill Country

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Texas Hill Country is the ideal place for an unforgettable vacation. Not only is it a scenic place to kick back and relax, it also offers plenty of exciting adventures! And when you visit us at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch, you can have it all.  BlissWood is a great destination for a getaway in Texas Hill Country.

Located in Cat Spring, Texas, BlissWood is nestled right in the heart of hill country. Just an hour west of Houston, it’s the perfect weekend getaway for locals.  But it’s not just Texans here. Folks travel from all over the globe to stay at our one-of-a-kind guest ranch.

Just this past weekend, we hosted a lovely group who travelled all the way from France.  They had a real American adventure and spent lots of time enjoying the great outdoors. They made the most of their visit, enjoying many of the activities our ranch has to offer.  They had a great time fishing in our stocked lake where we offer catch and release bass fishing.

They also had a blast playing games.  They tried their hand at some of our favorites including Frisbee golf and horseshoes.  And it wouldn’t be a BlissWood vacation without some horseback riding! It was a fantastic weekend full of  fun.

And after all that activity, they enjoyed a dinner at Carol’s at Cat Spring Restaurant.  Carol’s at Cat Spring has a menu with something for everyone, but it wouldn’t be a true Texas vacation without a steak dinner!  Our guests loved the ribeye!

Whether you’re coming from near or far, BlissWood is a great place to make some memories with your friends or family.  Plan your trip today!  Give us a call at 713-301-3235 or you can check availability online.  We look forward to seeing you soon!

Enchanting Texas Weddings

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Recently, a couple from Colorado choose our Texas guest ranch as the spot for their wedding. What follows is what the bride had to say about their Texas wedding:

A beautiful wedding at the ranch

“My husband and I have always loved the outdoors, so when we finally picked a wedding date, we knew that the ceremony would have to be an outdoor one. When we came across Blisswood’s website and watched the enchanting videos and viewed all of the amazing pictures of the ranch, we knew that we had found the place.

Our arrival was greeted by a couple of miniature donkeys and a peacock as we drove up to the nostalgic farm house in which we would be staying. The entire ranch was encompassed in towering oak trees and sparkling lakes. Our days were spent taking early morning walks through the dew-kissed fields where we could spot new born calves resting. Later in the afternoon we were fishing in the many lakes catching blue gill, bass, and our favorite catfish. Our evenings were spent swinging on our porch watching the blazing fire from our outdoor fire pit dance on the warm wind of Texas nights.

The staff of Blisswood catered to our every need during our stay on the ranch. Our house was tidied up and always stocked with breakfast for the following mornings. If we wanted to ride the white majestic horses, they were instantly saddled up for us, and all of the exotic animals on the ranch were just a short walk away. The owner of the ranch, Carol, also owns an amazing five star restaurant, where she mingled with her diners while they enjoyed mouth-watering dinners.

Our wedding day was the best day of our lives, and the most memorable. The whole place was dazzling in the afternoon sunlight, and as I walked up the aisle to my awaiting husband, I couldn’t have dreamed of a better place to be. Thanks to the on-site Pulitzer prize winning photographer, our memories will last forever. We were married by non-other than Carol herself, who is also an ordained minister, and had a wonderful party on the ranch with our friends and family afterwards. Our family and friends had paid for packages from the ranch that included roses in our house, chocolate strawberries and even champagne.

The most memorable time of our lives turned out flawlessly at Blisswood, and we cannot wait to go back to celebrate our new lives together.”

We are so happy they choose to have their wedding at our guest ranch Texas. It was a joy to share in their special day.
