Would you ever consider doing an old fashioned Christmas on a ranch? I certainly would! I think it would be an amazing thing to take the kids to a real ranch, with horses and cattle and see what life is like. You can do that this year! I have some info, below on Texas style Holidays on a ranch!
If you’re seeking a country-style old fashioned Christmas on the ranch with a dash of nostalgia, all the trimmings, and plenty of socially-distanced activities, keep reading.
The Blisswood Bed and Breakfast Ranch in Cat Spring, Texas, a 500-acre working ranch set up as cabins/cottages, has created an incredible getaway for its guests — complete with a special lighting of the BlissWood Christmas tree with Santa and Mrs Claus on December 4th. The getaway spans all of December and includes a country “SleigHay” ride, which is a makeshift sleigh.
