What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews
Relax and recharge with today's Groupon, offering a $99 romantic stay at BlissWood Bed and Breakfast, cozy, turn-of-the-century Texas homes on a sprawling, 650-acre ranch. Roughly a three-hour drive from Austin, your romantic getaway includes fresh flowers, chocolate-covered strawberries, a bottle of chilled champagne, and continental breakfast in the morning. Your Groupon gets you any room normally valued at $199 or less, plus the aforementioned extras. If you want to bring a neighbor or a kid or two, there is an additional $35 charge per person after double occupancy. When you redeem your Groupon, you can upgrade to include horseback riding for an extra $40 (normally $69 per guest) and feed your horse all the champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries you want. The horseback ride takes you on a romantic, leisurely trip through meadows and forests, across creeks, and into gymnastics arenas.
The peaceful property houses 10 completely furnished homes. Families can bunk up at the Texas Farm House, a restored two-story with two bedrooms, kitchen, living, and bath featuring a claw-foot tub. Privacy-seeking scribes can shack up at the The Writer's Cabin, a small, single-room cabin ideal for churning out best sellers.
Take a nature stroll, spy beautiful birds, or pet ranch-dwelling critters during your stay. Venture out to the surrounding Texas Hill Country for prime antique shopping, historical attractions, and beautiful wildflowers. This Groupon is great for modern-day-Goldilocks types looking to enjoy the comforts of someone else's home, city-dwellers looking for urban detox, or couples hoping to cozy up in the country for Valentine's Day (subject to availability).
Esquire had this to say about BlissWood Bed & Breakfast:
- …if you want a true Last Picture Show sense of a Texas where you can have eggs and bacon in a gazebo as the mist rises off the lake, you've found it. – John Mariani, Esquire
- Absolutely relaxing and charming bed and breakfast in a country setting that is not too far from the city by any stretch of the imagination. It's like having the key to your own 650 acre ranch where you can relax and soak up the fresh air and choose to do a number of activities or nothing at all. – TexasTravelbird, TripAdvisor
- Blisswood [sic] is a perfect place for all ages, especially people who have lived in the city all their lives. It really opened my eyes and gave me a feeling of the open-area farm life. – BedandBreakfast.com user, 12/30/2009
