  • Introduction

    BlissWood Bed and Breakfast - Cat Spring, Texas

    Spend a day, a week, or longer at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Inn—an unbelievable Texas Hill Country bed and breakfast at Lehmann Legacy Ranch, a 500-acre working ranch an hour west of Houston, Texas. Unwind in the peaceful country amidst majestic Live Oaks in your choice of charming Texas guesthouses, furnished with antiques, baths, kitchens, and privacy! Everything you will need for your next Texas vacation.

    Enjoy the simple life in the calming surroundings of this magnificent Cat Spring, Texas ranch, where animals abound, including horses, Angus cattle, miniature donkeys, peacocks, black buck antelope, and even American Bison. Relax with catch & release bass fishing in our stocked lakes. Watch swans, ducks and geese glide by on the pond. Rekindle a romance with romantic getaways in Texas, or have a picnic at the gazebo overlooking the Enchanted Lake. Take a midnight stroll through the meadows and moonbeams, gaze at the stars, do nothing... do it all!

    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 and your hiking boots for some more adventures.
