“Great place to unwind and relax...nature style!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This was definitely a pure Texas style ranch getaway and the timing could not have been more perfect. Spring was in the air, the bluebonnets were in full bloom, and the best part you ask? Absolutely no technology. There was no TV, no cell phone coverage (that's a good thing), and no interent. Exactly what my wife and I wanted. We celebrated our 24 yr anniversary at the Oasis. Our cabin was called Harriet's House. The accommodations were perfect. A beautiful 2 story cabin with a king size bed. I think we only saw 6 other people in the 3 days we stayed. We rented a golf cart and toured the ranch more than once. After seeing some of the other cabins on the ranch we plan on coming back again and staying on the ranch itself. And let's don't forget about Carol's Restaurant. That was one of the best steaks I have ever eat. If you looking for a peaceful and relaxing place to get away that's not that far from Houston or Austin, then Blisswood is the place for you!

Room Tip: If our looking for more privacy, then go with a cabin at the Oasis. You can't go wrong. It'...

Glad that you enjoyed our Oasis property and that you appreciated getting "unplugged" here. We all need that at times, and BlissWood is that place to do just that. Thanks for taking time to let us know how you experienced BlissWood.

My bride and I stayed at Blisswood 4/3-4/5/14 and purchased the Elopement Package. We had a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough that our trip coincided with the peak bloom of the wildflowers. The property is beautiful. The Enchanted cabin we stayed in was very cozy and clean. It is an unhosted property so you have a feeling of being isolated, but that's what want we wanted...a country get away. We wish we could have seen more of the ranch animals, though we did get up close and personal with a bison, and the grazing cattle were plentiful. I think the Elopement Package was a great value. Carol was our ceremony officiant and Skeeter took wonderful photos!! At times we felt there could have been more communication about how our wedding day would go, but it turned out to be perfectly in line with what we wanted...intimate & stress-free!! The flowers provided were great and the dinner/cake afterwards was amazing.

We look forward to returning in the future!

We just returned from an incredible week at Blisswood. We were looking for a place to get away from everything, decompress, spend time together and with God. We knew this was a special place the moment we pulled into the gate to be greeted by a pasture of bluebonnets. We stayed in the Texas Farmhouse, which was perfect for a couple that is dating, but seeking to honor God as well. The front porch was the perfect place for coffee and to catch the incredible sunrise through the trees. The pasture behind the house was where we enjoyed the sunset each night among the most beautiful field of bluebonnets we have ever seen. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed cooking breakfast together in the kitchen.

We took advantage of horseback riding, trap shooting, a couples massage on our back porch overlooking the bluebonnets, and an unforgettable picnic lunch at the gazebo at Enchanted Lake. Carol, Skeeter, and Armando were all so warm and helpful. They went over and above to make sure that we were well taken care of. We will never forget the long walks, our talks on the porch, and enjoying each other. This was everything we had hoped it would be. Blisswood has become very special to us and I just know we will be regulars.

Room Tip: Each house is different and unique. The videos on the website are a good guide. I narrowed it down...

If you're looking for THE authentic Texas country experience (and you also don't mind a healthy dose of luxury), then BlissWood is your next vacation getaway spot. As my lady and I are split between Austin and Houston, we wanted a convenient rendezvous somewhere in between for a weekend getaway. Suffice it to say, this spot blew us away on each and every front. The magic begins when you manually open the swinging gate (a required attribute of any Texas ranch), and travel through the sprawling grounds, painted with bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes and lush countryside, complete with cattle and horses and everything else you would find on a true blue ranch. Each cottage, individually situated throughout the grounds, offers a unique experience. We stayed in the Lotus Room, an Asian-inspired decor that had a shower and jacuzzi hot tub unlike any we've ever encountered. The tub filled from the bottom and the shower had a built-in radio and foot massage device - that should give you an ample idea of the caliber you're dealing with.

Anyway, we woke up Saturday and drove to the nearby town of Chappel Hill (home of the annual Bluebonnet Festival) and had a bite to eat at Bever's Kitchen, a quaint spot on the main street. Great sandwiches, excellent pie. We then drove around until we landed at a cool bar that appeared to be a nice little fancy restaurant as well. It was called "R Place at Washington-on-the-Brazos." A surreal experience as we relaxed on the back patio of this relatively isolated venue, taking in the last of the daylight.

On our way back to Blisswood, we spontaneously dipped into a restaurant called Carol's in Cat Spring. Come to find out, the restaurant is owned and operated by the proprietor of BlissWood, the lovely Miss Carol. Once we put the two together, it all made sense - she was the embodiment of the charm, authenticity and everything else that was uniquely BlissWood. Carol greeted us like long lost family, not only asking if we had everything we needed, but genuinely interested in what brought us there, what we thought about the place, and the like. It was one of those experiences that can't be replicated with lavish expense or so-called 5-Diamond service of say, a Four Seasons or an Aman property. It's that personal touch that makes BlissWood an unforgettable Texas gem.

So, if you're in search for a hidden country getaway spot, one that presents itself like something out of a Larry McMurtry novel, look no further than BlissWood.

Room Tip: Only stayed in the Lotus Room, which was amazing. I'm sure each cottage has something unique to...

Thanks for taking time to let us know about your experience at BlissWood. Sounds like the perfect place for you and your gal to meet between Houston and Austin. Glad you came at a time when the bluebonnets were in their peak splendor and glory here. Mother Nature blessed us doubly!
Hope to see you again soon.

I simply cannot describe what a wonderful time I had at the Blisswood ranch! All my life I have dreamed of visiting Texas and staying on a real working ranch. This trip did not disappoint. From the beautiful property to the cozy cabin in the woods, everything was just as I had imagined or better! Carol was an amazing hostess, I was made to feel very welcome. The TX wildflowers in bloom at the end of march were a sight that has to be seen to be believed! A photographers dream! Horseback riding across the ranch was a highlight. Sitting on the porch of my little cabin, with the sounds of cattle lowing in the distance, enjoying my morning coffee while gazing out across an incredible field of wildflowers was the most serene I have felt in decades. Everything about my stay evoked a sense of rightness. My only regret is that I could not stay a lot longer. I felt a real sense of renewal and reconnection with the natural world after my short stay. I can only hope that a week or more of Blisswood is in my near future.

My husband and I spent two relaxing and peaceful days in paradise at BlissWood Oasis in Cherry Blossom. The atmosphere rejuvenated our minds and spirits. The cabin is beautiful and must be quite new. Every detail was well planned - the lovely boxes containing our breakfast, the robes, and the perfectly stocked kitchen. We ate at Cat's one night and enjoyed a delicious meal- the salmon was superb. The second night we cooked in the cabin. Our porch/patio area is perfect for relaxing and is very pet friendly. There's even a mat out front - we can't agree about whether it's a yoga mat (for sun salutations) or if it's for a dog . . . and we forgot to ask. We highly recommend this gorgeous place to anyone who wants to get away from the rush and stress of city life and/or work. Just walking around the grounds and visiting the horses, llama/alpaca (?), bison, etc. was very relaxing. Fresh air and no traffic sounds made it perfect. It did rain Saturday, but that was nice in its own way.

Thanks taking time to let us know how much you enjoyed your stay in the Cherry Blossom Suite at the Oasis. It is one of our newer suites, and we enjoyed decorating it with its little details. The mat can be used for yoga or just to enjoy! Thanks for dining at Carol's at Cat Spring and happy you enjoyed your meal there. Hope to see you back in the future.

My husband and I retreated to Blisswood from Houston for a weekend away before our first baby arrives. It was the perfect quiet weekend, away from the city! We stayed in the Texas Farmhouse and loved its charm. We enjoyed quiet mornings on the wrap around porch, a picnic in a beautiful field of bluebonnets, looking at all the animals on site, and several walks on the gorgeous property. We even got to include out dog, who is very much a part of our family! This was a very special weekend for us, and we look forward to coming back for another weekend away, or bringing our son with us next time!
