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.
