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.

Guest Ranch Welcomes Managers

Monday, February 7th, 2011

Debby and Ralph are the managers of our Houston Texas guest ranch. Debby has a great deal of experience in hospitality, while Ralph has had a varied career that includes construction and maintenance. In short, they are perfect for Blisswood. Ralph makes sure everything on the ranch is ship-shape, while Debby dedicates herself to ensuring that guests of our Bed and Breakfast Cat Spring Texas have all they need.

Both of these are big jobs. Our ranch is spread over 650-acres, and our B&B consists of ten turn-of-the-century homes. In addition, we offer many activities on the ranch for our guests, be it horseback riding, archery, fishing, or romantic picnics at the lake gazebo. Guests may choose to do nothing more than relax on the porch of their vacation cabin, or they may fill their time here with a host of activities. Debby and Ralph will help all happen smoothly.

Debbie and Ralph manage our Texas guest ranch.

Look for Debbie and Ralph the next time you stay at our romantic Texas guest ranch in Cat Spring, Texas.

Texas Guest Ranch Strives to make Guests Happy

Monday, November 8th, 2010

From time to time, happy guests of our vacation ranch near Houston write reviews on BedandBreakfast.com or Trip Advisor. We are always thrilled to see that – it means we’ve done our job.

The Happy Goddess with Sassy.

Below is one such review, posted on BedandBreakfast.com. At right is a picture of the guest with our dog Sassy.

“One word: Wow! We chose the Enchanted Cabin for our stay as I wanted something secluded and away from everyone else. This is EXACTLY what we got. In fact, when we drove down the road (with darling little handmade signs) we got to the end and my husband said, “Where is it?” The cabin was so nestled we barely saw it. (more…)
