We just has such an enjoyable stay at Blisswood. The staff is friendly and helpful. The place is simply beautiful. It's great for couples or families or even if you want to get away alone. We went horseback riding, enjoyed a romantic picnic at the Gazebo, and rode around the endless acreage in a golf cart just enjoying the scenery and many birds. The homes are very unique and cozy to stay in. We also enjoyed dinner at Carol's restaurant. We will be back soon!
What an amazing place to spend our moms getaway Weekend! The moment we walked in, it felt just like home! Rodney went out of his way to make our stay special. He had delicious snacks and drinks waiting for us when we arrived. The homemade quilts and charming decor were incredible. Can't wait to come back and stay again!
Wonderful place to unwind and unplug. Pam was a wonderful hostess. She was very knowledge about events in the area. We watched several fireworks show from the front porch from the area around the B&B. The outdoor sitting area was very inviting and comfortable to sit and enjoy the breeze. Spec (cat) and Jez (dog) were glad to accommodate us in scratching their ears and heads as we kicked back in the lounge chairs. Will come again and recommend to our friends.
This is the perfect place to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of normal life. We enjoyed our walks around the property, the picnic in the gazebo, and an amazing lobster dinner at the restaurant.
The Oasis has a beautiful & romantic setting. The property itself needs a little TLC. As a person with asthma & allergies the room & bedding could have been fresher(the sheets where fresh & super soft... it was the comforter & fancy pillows that could have used a steam cleaning & a good mopping) But that does not overcast the beautiful ambiance of this property. The staff was extremely helpful & kind.(you are our in the country... so there is a lot of privacy) I was disappointed in the breakfast... at least it was not what I expected for $269 a night.(2-bagles,2-muffins,2-oranges,2-granola bars,2-OJ,2-apple juice,2-pks cream cheese) this is in your fridge in a cute little box upon arrival. We drove to the closest grocery store(about 25 minutes) & my husband made all our meals... honestly that was romantic:) I have to say the highlight of our trip was the greenhouse swimming pool. surrounded in plants...Very Romantic.
My wife and I were looking for a B&B convenient to the 4th of July festivities in Chappell Hill, TX and Washington-on-the-Brazos State Park, and we found the Brazos B&B. We were pleasantly surprised to find a wonderful place to stay with a wonderful, gracious host, Diane Hunter. We arrived late on the 3rd, but she had a nice snack of wine and cheese ready for us. The breakfast we had the next two days were outstanding, also. The stay at the Brazos B&B was exactly what we were looking for, and we look forward to staying there again in the not-too-distant future
We loved our stay in the Oasis. The Cherry Blossum Suite was beautiful. We had dinner brought to our room one evening. The food was delicious. We also experienced a picnic by the lake. It was so peaceful and quiet. The massage in our room by Cheryl was fantastic!! The pool was great. We hope to make more trips back to this quiet and peaceful Oasis in the country. The only thing that I would say needs improvement is the grounds and plants. The grass was overgrown and the view from our back patio was very overgrown.
We wanted to celebrate our 20 years wedding anniversary and choose bliss wood for the weekend outside of the city. My husband is a big fun of agrotourism and I prefer to have comfort and style. At bliss wood we have found everything we looked for! Host was exceptional and felt like at home. Also romantic package was excellent and really put the right mood into the weekend.
Lovely stay at Country Place Cottage. Room was very nice with the added bonus of a sunroom and use of a full kitchen. Lots of privacy for a romantic getaway. The grounds were beautiful. Very serene.
We opted to do a romantic getaway with our stay to celebrate our anniversary. Barbara exceeded all expectations. We will go back. Farm is close enough to spend time in Brenham and Chapel Hill. Thank you Barbara!
My husband and I just spent three days at the Murski Homestead. Our room was perfect, welcoming with the king size bed (with great pillows), modern amenities such as wifi (needed to download my books), and beautifully decorated. We had a snack prepared for us in our room when we arrived and fresh juice in the refrigerator. Pamela welcomed us, and gave us the tour and made sure that we were comfortable, then left us to relax.Our room, the Lavender Room, had a private porch that we really enjoyed. We had breakfast on the porch each day and we were serenaded by so many birds. Pamela's meals are amazing and we are planning to return for a cooking class. We would highly recommend Murski's Homestead to anyone.
We stayed in the Lanai House which is located in the Hawaiian themed Oasis part of the B & B. We loved the Lanai House with its wrap-around deck and spacious living room/kitchen. It had a full kitchen and a very comfortable bed. My husband and I sat on the deck every night to listen to the frogs and talk while our toddler slept. It was very nice! I liked very much that there weren't people bothering us, no loud noises and there is no cell phone reception or wi-fi in the Oasis. I loved all the bamboo, too.The Greenhouse pool was great, however, the waterfall in the pool did not work and that was disappointing because I think it would have really added something nice to the experience. Also, there was a beautiful fountain that appeared to have a leak. We filled it up a couple times with the hose, but it quickly lost water and we could hear the fountain engine struggling. There were a couple more greenhouses in the Oasis that I was hoping to see full of plants and flowers, but it seemed that almost everything had died over the Winter. Also, the biggest structure in the Oasis--a house attached to the pool greenhouse--looked abandoned and not taken care of. It seemed like an awful waste of space to me. It could be more rooms or a banquet hall or….? Overall we loved the Oasis area, but it has potential to be even better Since there was no reception in the Oasis (at least for us), it would be nice if there was some sort of main "call button" that you could press if there was an emergency or if someone needed something. The Dining experience was not great, but my husband and I are very picky foodies. The ambiance was great but the food was not. It was just ok, nothing special. It was not an exciting menu whatsoever The breakfast they give you is very generous and it includes bagels, fruit, yogurt and juice. But the coffee in the room was weak and not good and it would have been nice to have nicer breakfast treats like a croissant or some toast and butter with jam.
We spent a nice relaxing weekend in the Oasis section of Blisswood B&B, howver this area is nowhere nearly as appealing as the online videos and photos lead one to believe, as it is in need of work. The area has so much potential to be a true oasis. There are what could be lovely waterfalls and water features but none of them were working. The atrium area with the pond/pool was very just not kept up. Pool water sitting still and not at all inviting. The owner did upgrade us to the Lanai from the Aloha as we had reserved. We appreciated that as there is much more space and a kitchen that is very well equipped. The a/c and fans kept us cool and comfortable. The jacuzzi was nice. Even though the property does need attention to detail, the trees and bamboo are very pretty and the house had a soft green light from outside. We enjoyed the big porch and cooking out. There was lots of bird song and frog calling. We went over to the ranch on Saturday but did not spend much time there. The property is beautiful. We wanted to rent a golf cart to explore around but were unable to connect with anyone to do this. I suggest making firm arrangements ahead of time. We had dinner Saturday night at Carol's Restaurant in Cat Spring. (The owner's). This is a lovely place with a charming ambience and very good food. We had salmon and ribeye and salads. The service was very good as well. We hope to go back, but will stay on the ranch when we do.
My family and I have stayed at many B&B's, but this one is definitely our favorite! The tranquility, the quaint 'ole farmhouse, and Charlotte, the hostess and owner, make for an unforgettable stay. If you're looking for a place to renew body and soul, Quebe Farm is the place. We've been here so many times that it always feels like we're coming home when we return. Thanks Charlotte for all you do!
This place was amazing, they had gave me several options!!! I was able to get dinner sent to our room every night and lunch setup at their beautiful Gazebo. Me and my wife also scheduled horse back riding, a personal golf cart to get around the property everyday and amazing full body massages for both us in our room. The room also had a jacuzzi and a private outdoor pool. The name was the magnolia suite. It gave us a chance to live the dream of what it would be like to retire in a beautiful setting like such in the country. I would highly reccomend this place to everyone and anyone who wants relaxation and time away from the city life especially!!!
My husband and I stayed in the Enchanted cabin for our 5th anniversary. He was so pleased as was I with this encredible place. We had a lake right across from our cabin. It was so secluded and beautiful! The roses around the Gazebo made the view picture perfect. We grilled out and enjoyed the fabulous hot tub. We rode the horses and I believe Armando is the one who took us on the trail ride. He was so friendly and very educated about horses. My husband and I are planning another trip and we would recommend this place to anybody. Don't forget to stop and eat at Carol's restaurant. Carol herself cooked us an amazing steak! I couldn't have a chosen a better place to celebrate our 5 years of marriage. Thanks Kevin & Shanon Moore
This bed and breakfast has the three P's of good bed and breakfasts: Privacy, Personal Touch, and Pretty. I loved that the place is hidden in the trees. You know you have neighbors, but you don't even see them. The front porch has privacy curtains for the hot tub and the swing. I thought I wouldn't like the idea of not getting breakfast prepared, BUT it was nice to be on our own schedule and not on the b and b's. Breakfast fixings were available (great ones). The view was amazing, the cabin was darling (we stayed in the Homestead). We never saw our hosts, but when we managed to get lost (twice), Noruh (I think that was her name) kindly put us back on track. It was peaceful, quiet, restful, everything I needed. I especially appreciated being able to set up a massage and having it in room (I highly recommend Christie Beamon on the site). The only negative I can say is that the king bed downstairs was a little harder than I prefer, but overall I give this a definite five star. I do recommend you follow the directions on the SH website, because your GPS will NOT get you there! Take it from one who stayed lost for about 40 minutes.
I tried not to rate their food because on the house breakfast was a country cafe off property. their food was great. Morning coffee in the room and breakfast when you want is as you leave to tour the city.
Everything went above and beyond my expectations. We stayed in the sage room in mid-April of 2014. When we arrived Pamela, gave us a nice little tour and gave us a map of good places to eat dinner that night. The bed was like sleeping on a big comfy cloud. The bathroom was big and roomy and the antique claw foot tub was such a nice touch and gave a lovely bath. We paid a little extra to have breakfast in our suite that morning. The breakfast blew us away. SO tasty. All in all it was amazing. We will be going back and if you are ever in the area, you should totally check this place out.
We stayed in the School House. The minute I walked in the door I was captured. The atmosphere was great and the room so spacious and open. One of the many delights was choosing which china pattern I was going to use for the next meal. Really can't say enough about our stay. Susan is a delightful person and goes out of her way to make sure her guest's stay is the best it can be. Definitely going back!
We went to celebrate our anniversary... we stayed in one of the cabins of the oasis, the cabin was really good... it was what we were expecting, but for me was really disappointed to see that area really neglected... the beautiful pool area that you see in the video and pictures of the oasis was terrible, all the plants were dead and it was very duty...we never saw all the animals that the ranch have... we only saw 3 buffalos and 2 mini horses... in our picnic they should reserve the gazibo for us, but they didn't put the sign until 25 minutes after we arrived, so there were another 3 couples in there and it wasn't so private at it should be... for the other side the massages were great and the food in carols restaurant it is really really good...
