Guest Policies and Terms of Service
No Smoking: BlissWood is a Smoke-Free environment.
Pets may be allowed (with advanced notice)
At BlissWood we understand that you love your pets, so we strive to be pet-friendly lodging, with prior arrangements and an extra charge. If considering bringing your pet, be aware that there is a "family" of domesticated dogs living on the ranch that may not get along well with your pet. As well, some ranch animals and pets just don't "mix". Please contact us first if considering bringing your pet.
Two-night minimum stay required on weekends and holidays. When a holiday falls on Thursday or Monday, a three-night minimum stay is required. At times a one-night stay may be permissible for an extra charge. Any lodging at the Oasis can be booked for a one-night stay at any time.
Our policy is intended to be fair to our guests, yet prevent the loss of income to our business. Our location is such that we do not have a large volume of traffic past our exclusive B&B. We rent our accommodations by advanced reservations only. Once we reserve a guest house for you, we remove it from the market, refusing all other requests.
For cancellations received 14 days or more prior to arrival, deposit may be applied to stays from Sunday night through Wednesday night, and you may use that deposit within one year from date of cancellation, excluding holidays and special events.
For cancellations received less than 14 days prior to arrival, no refunds will be made.
Although we feel that seasonal Texas weather brings out varied views of beauty around the BlissWood property, we can't be held responsible for the weather being satisfactory to everyone. Keep in mind the old saying about Texas...If you don't like the weather... just wait, it'll change soon.
This cancellation policy does not apply for weddings and other events. A separate cancellation policy included in the wedding contract will apply.
To secure your reservations, a deposit of 1/2 of the lodging is due at the time of making your reservations. The balance is due 14 days prior to arrival, at which time your credit card will automatically be charged for the balance.
If reservation is made less than 14 days prior to arrival, full payment is due at the time of making the reservation.
Prices exclusive of 6% Texas State Room Tax.
Please note: This payment policy does not apply to weddings. There is a separate policy and contract for weddings, and usually has to be paid for much further in advance than two weeks. Please contact us early during your wedding planning stages for information and reservations.
Any damages done to any BlissWood property by guests or persons visiting or staying with guests or any damages done by pets will be the responsibility of the person who made the reservation, and by your confirmation of the receipt of e-mail from BlissWood, you agree to make restitution for such damage.
Very Important Vehicle Tip:
Please stay on the interior ranch roads (in your own vehicles or golf carts). Driving off the roads or in the pastures puts you at risk for getting stuck, wet or dry, as we have sandy soil. If it becomes necessary for us to remove you from a stuck position, there will be a charge of $150 for labor and to repair the grounds. If you get a wrecker to assist you, then we will charge $60 for grounds repair.
SPECIAL NOTE: BlissWood was created as a place to rest and relax, in a peaceful country setting; therefore, there are no TVs or telephones in the guest houses. Most cell phones have reception here, and AT&T works the best. 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. Also our country roads are bumpy and you will encounter those bumps. We think it adds to our country charm and atmosphere here, as we are not a pristine country club. We are located on a ranch in the country.
BlissWood does not assume responsibility for special circumstances due to people having allergic reactions to anything related to the property. It is possible that BlissWood personnel or previous guests may have prepared foods that some people are allergic to, such as foods containing peanuts, on our property. Although our properties are thoroughly cleaned regularly, anyone with allergies or special conditions are warned that BlissWood will not be held responsible for any health problems. Persons should also consider that this is a working ranch, and as such has many different species of animals and plants on the property that some people may find they are allergic to.
Being a large working ranch, there are inherent dangers on the property. Considerations for safety should be taken by visitors at all times. You may encounter insects, spiders, snakes, and animals (some quite large) that can possibly pose a serious threat to humans. Visitors are responsible for their own safety and should take necessary precautions while visiting our ranch. (As examples; please don't try to pet the Bison or swim in our lakes. If hiking, beware of thorns, insects, bee nests, snakes; etc.). If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact us for detailed information.
