About the Owner

Born and raised on a Texas ranch and after years in Houston as a court reporter, with the city lights “dimming” and yearning once more for the country life, Carol opened BlissWood Bed & Breakfast Ranch in 1990 after discovering a property reminiscent of her childhood home near LaGrange, Texas. Captivated by its charm, she delights in sharing this slice of country living with guests, witnessing their transformations as they leave their worries behind. The ranch’s energy, rooted in the outdoors and a love for animals, profoundly impacts every visitor, offering a privileged glimpse into nature’s healing power.
