About

Spend a day, a week, or even longer in the peaceful country setting amidst majestic Live Oaks in your choice of turn-of-the-century Texas Homes, completely furnished with antiques of their era... all on the Lehmann Legacy Ranch, over 650 acres of working ranch only an hour west of Houston. Enjoy the simple life in the calming surroundings, where animals abound on the ranch. For those who enjoy riding, we'll saddle up a quarter horse or a gaited Paso Fino from South America so you can leisurely ride across the meadows, through oak forests, across creeks, and past soothing ponds. Bring your mountain bike. Relax. Sip a refreshment on your guest house porch and watch the sun set. Then savor your own home-cooked meal or take a very short journey to BlissWood's own gourmet restaurant, Carol's at Cat Spring, where Chef Jaime creates delighful, delectable dinners. Take a midnight stroll through the meadows and moonbeams. Gaze at the stars. Do nothing. Do it all. Come stay with us and you'll understand why we call this magical place BlissWood. We plan wonderful weddings, family reunions, church retreats, corporate retreats for teambuilding and seminars. Call for pricing and please note that during holidays and special events (such as antiques weeks), our pricing is different than our regular published rates.

It was ok, but i was expecting more...

3.2 on April 21, 2014

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...


Neat location, secluded

Far off the beaten path - that and that bluebonnets were the best part. Neat place.


Great for families with animal lovers

4.4 on December 29, 2013

Loved our cabin-suite, the 'Dog Trot' two connected cabins. Stayed there over Christmas holidays and had an 1800's-ish southwest lodge-like fireplace warmth with our extended family - four adults and two toddlers. Very comfortable and we wished we had made more time for the trip there. Several days would have been good. Many interesting activities inside the cabins and outside - especially riding the horses and feeding the barnyard and exotic animals - peacocks, goats, turkeys, pigs, border collies, etc. Hope to come back in future.


What incredible people!

Me and my wife went to Blisswood for our honeymoon, and it was everything we could have ever hoped for. The room was spotless and beautifully arranged when we arrived. The land is absolutely gorgeous and really is the perfect get away from city lights and sounds. We enjoyed the honeymoon package including a wonderful picnic at the Enchanted Lake. If you stay here you absolutely have to go to Carol's restaurant for dinner, the food is incredible and the wait staff were enthusiastic and created a very joyful atmosphere. Still our favorite part of Blisswood are the people who run it; southern hospitality at its finest!


What an amazing place

4.8 on May 25, 2013

Blisswood Bed and Breakfast is top notch! My girlfriend ( now fiance' ) and I went over to Blisswood last weekend, and we had just a wonderful time. The room was clean, and very neat, well organized. We went and ate at Ms. Carol's restaraunt, and it was fantastic. The next day we went on a horseback ride to the Enchanted Lake where I proposed to my now fiance'. Ms. Carol as well as everyone at Blisswood took very good care of us, and we cannot thank them enough.
