The Destination
Dug from the sandy loam by German immigrants in the 1900s, Cat Springs, Texas, wears its history on its sleeve—and the result is a quintessential Texas town brimming with character and charm. An hour from Houston and peppered with gins, mills, shops, antique shops, and churches, this hamlet on the prairie melds together the tight-knit closeness of a small town with the wide-open expanse of the rugged Lone Star plains, where you're just as likely to have your pick of wildflowers as you are a view of the undisturbed night stars.

The Digs
BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Inn on Lehmann Legacy Ranch may elude GPS satellites, but its tranquil silence and awe-inspiring grounds provide more than enough stimulation. The lodgings at this 650-acre working farm range from 1800s-style log cabins, writers' residences draped in oaken isolation, and even a fully restored two-story Texas farmhouse. Each residence boasts period antiques, immaculate baths, fully furnished kitchens, and unabridged privacy, some even offering Jacuzzis, fireplaces, and the occasional 1920s-era gas stove. Happily pet-friendly, the ranch provides ample space for family pets to roam alongside the barnyard gang of Angus cattle and antelope as well as an extended menagerie of alpacas and peacocks. Here, sipping refreshments is best accomplished on your front porch or on the Enchanted Lake's inlaid island gazebo whose romantic aesthetic is no accident—it was built for a wedding.

  • "I couldnt have asked for a better experience! [Our suite] had a full kitchen and grill out back. There are tree swings everywhere... We loved sitting on the front porch drinking coffee in the mornings. We will definitely be going back!"
