Texas Bed and Breakfast: More Spring Babies

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

Nature just keeps giving us more little surprises around the farm! These guys are REALLY cute! Here at Blisswood, we wanted to make a Texas Weekend Getaway that would be able to please families, couples, and friends too. So we keep lots of animals around, because this is a farm and doesn’t love baby animals, right?

We have nine vacation-rental style homes on the ranch; each with its own unique appeal. Some, like the Writer’s Cabin, are single bedroom and hidden back among the live oaks to make for a very romantic setting. Others, like the Sullivan House, have three bedrooms and can sleep up to eight.

We also offer a variety of specials and packages to enhance your visit to Blisswood B&B and add that extra charm. For a Texas Romantic Getaway, consider adding a “romance package” to your accommodation. It includes fresh flowers in your room, a chilled bottle of champagne with glasses to keep, chocolate covered strawberries and a cheese plate. You can also order a romantic dinner for two from Carol’s at Cat Spring and have it delivered to your room at Blisswood.

These are just a few of the wonderful amenities and additions we have here at Blisswood that makes us one of the best places to visit near Houston.

Texas Bed and Breakfast: Two Weeks Till Spring!

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

We have another adorable member of the Lehmann Legacy ranch family! This little guy is one of our miniature donkeys. We have a lot of animals around the farm, so be prepared for some fun when you come to Blisswood for your Texas Weekend Getaway!

I’m not sure how much you know about the Hill Country of Texas, but it is an amazingly beautiful area of the state and the nation. We have rolling hills and spring-fed lakes and rivers. In the summer time enjoy cool rains that stir up dust and cool off your skin. Watch lighting roll across the landscape and cuddle with your loved one during the thunder! Then, the next day, take a horseback ride and explore the landscape. All part of a Texas Romantic Getaway at Blisswood Bed and Breakfast.

With so much to look forward to, what are you waiting for? Use one of the links above to explore our site, or, explore what Blisswood at Lehmann has to offer as an outdoor Texas wedding location.

Texas Bed and Breakfast: Spring is coming!

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

As small flowering bulbs start to poke their heads out of the soil, and the crisp air takes on a welcoming aroma, it becomes more and more apparent: Spring is just around the corner!

Another way we here at Blisswood, the ultimate Texas Weekend Getaway, can tell that Spring is coming, is when our animals tell us. New life is showing up at Lehmann Legacy Ranch!

Here are some great pictures of the new calves in the fields around our Texas Romantic Getaway. We hope you will want to spend some time with us soon!
