Two Ideal Locations

Here at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch, we keep our lakes stocked with a variety of fish, including Hybrid Striped Bass, Black Crappie, and Largemouth Bass! Enjoy relaxing catch and release fishing with premier accommodations onsite as well as everything you need right nearby. For offsite fishing, we highly recommend Stephen F. Austin State Park. Make sure and check out other activities the State Park offers, like hiking and historical sites, and plan a fantastic day trip!

Reel in a Good Time

Sit back and fish to your heart’s content at our onsite lakes stocked with plenty of fish for catch-and-release fun. For more experienced anglers we highly recommend bringing your own gear, but we do have equipment available to rent for those less versed in the art of the cast. We ask that visitors not swim in the lakes, so as to not disturb the fish. But if you want to get out on the water, we have an option for you! We have a variety of Kayaks, Canoes, or Paddleboards available to rent for the day, and nothing beats an afternoon picnic by the lake – that we pack for you! Make sure and reserve for fish privileges and other rentals with your lodging as we have limited availability.

A Comfortable Place to Stay

Make your fishing trip even more memorable with one of our special cabins designed for the perfect fishing experience. Both our Sunset Pond and Hideaway Cabins include access to a private fishing pond and pier exclusively for lodging guests. Request fishing privileges when booking and we’ll get everything ready for your arrival. Wake up to a delicious continental breakfast prepared with a selection of pastries, fresh fruit, and coffee of course, for those early morning fishing trips. Find your perfect accommodation in the great outdoors with unique modern amenities to enjoy the best of both worlds. Sit by a fire pit and roast marshmallows or cozy up next to a fireplace with a glass of wine at Hideaway. Soak your cares away in a private hot tub at Sunset Pond or soak up the cool breeze from the air conditioning. We hope to see you soon here at the Ranch and wish you good fishing wherever your line is cast next.
