Say ‘Happy Anniversary’ at BlissWood

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Anniversaries are an affair to remember at BlissWood, our Bed and Breakfast Inn and event destination in the Texas Hill Country, an hour west of Houston.

Couples of all ages come to BlissWood Bed and Breakfast at Lehmann Legacy Ranch to relax, unwind, rekindle the romance – perhaps even renew their vows — in the peaceful surroundings of our rooms and guesthouses, located on a 650-acre working ranch in Cat Spring, Texas.

Some couples like to leave the planning to us and splurge on BlissWood’s anniversary package ($159, plus the price of lodging). Consider it a second honeymoon. The package includes fresh flowers; a bottle of champagne (plus keepsake glasses); cheese and crackers; chocolate-dipped strawberries; and a catered picnic in our Gazebo at Enchanted Lake.


 BlissWood guests celebrating wedding anniversaries can schedule a photo shoot with our official photographer, Skeeter Hagler.

For an additional $75, this couple who celebrated their anniversary at our guest ranch made lasting anniversary memories by scheduling a photo shoot with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Skeeter Hagler, BlissWood’s official photographer.

They enjoyed a relaxing anniversary and weekend in Texas Hill Country and took the time to post a review of BlissWood Bed and Breakfast on Bedandbreakfast.com:

“What a special place…and just an hour outside of Houston! If you like spending time outside, you will love this place. We celebrated our anniversary here and couldn’t have asked for a better place to do so. It was very quiet, quaint, and peaceful.

“Just roaming around the ranch was wonderful, but the highlights of our trip were dinner at Carol’s Restaurant, the morning horseback ride and the unbelievable photo shoot with Skeeter (Hagler). …The staff was helpful and engaging and made us feel right at home. We enjoyed great conversation with both Carol and Skeeter. What a special group of people they are. We just can’t wait to go back!’’

We look forward to welcoming  couples celebrating anniversaries and other life milestones and special occasions to our bed and breakfast inn. Let us help YOU plan a special Hill Country getaway. Visit our website or give us a call at 713-301-3235.

At BlissWood, good things come to those who bait

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

Most visitors come to BlissWood, our vacation ranch and bed and breakfast inn in Cat Spring, Texas, for a weekend (or more!) of trail riding. We are, after all, a 650-acre working ranch.

But BlissWood, our property an hour west of Houston in Texas Hill Country, also boasts several pristine lakes stocked with bass. We encourage guests to take the bait and go fishing. It’s a great way for city slickers of all ages to forget the hustle and bustle and connect with nature.

While some people fish for sport — or for supper — others fish as a way to simply relax and unwind. Fishing at BlissWood promotes peace and quiet and serenity of the mind and is calming to the nerves. Leave your cell phone behind or put it on “silence.”

Both experienced and novice anglers are invited to take advantage of BlissWood’s catch-and-release bass fishing option. If you bring your own gear, the cost is $29 per person. If you would like to use our gear, the cost is $49 per person.

Our catch and release policy is of benefit to both the fish and our guests. The fish are released back to their own environment, giving other visitors to BlissWood a chance to catch the same fish again.

So go ahead. Post a note on your guest house or cabin door that reads: Gone Fishin.’ Catch You Later.

Bass fishing is one of many relaxing activities here at BlissWood. To learn more, give us a call at 713-301-3235.

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.

Romantic Getaways Near Houston

One of our favorite places for weddings is the Blisswood Oasis. Nestled in the rolling prairies of Texas Hill Country, the Oasis is a romantic retreat reminiscent of a tropical paradise. A wonderful wrought-iron greenhouse known as the Conservatory houses an intimate pool surrounded by lush, tropical flowers. A waterfall fills the space with the sound of cascading water. Perhaps you will choose to have your ceremony in the nearby Orchid House, surrounded by the ethereal beauty and heady fragrance of these remarkable flowers. It is an ideal place for weddings in Texas, and for romantic getaways in Texas after the ceremony.
