The on-site pool at the Dog Trot House is for Dog Trot House guests only.
Is there anything special I need to know?
Accommodations are not equipped with WiFi. You can get Internet service in the area of the Show Barn. Because we honor your privacy and we are a working ranch, you may not see anybody except occasionally a ranch hand going by. We want it that way so you can enjoy our quiet environment, and BlissWood was created just for that purpose. Please also understand that you are in the country, and you will encounter critters and things that were here long before we were. We just honor their space and co-exist peacefully with them. Also our country roads are bumpy and you will encounter those bumps. We think it adds to our country atmosphere and charm here, as we are not a pristine country club. We are located on a ranch in the country.
