Run as fast as you can to Runaway Bay, Texas. Hurry to Honey Hollow Ranch. I’m not sure how else to say it: You must go!
Confession: I did not learn about Honey Hollow Ranch until this summer when something on Facebook caught my attention. After a little digging, I knew Fort Worth Moms and Honey Hollow Ranch needed to be friends. (I’m happy to report that friendship is indeed budding.) I also knew I needed to spread the word about this oasis so near Tarrant County.
The FWMB executive team stayed at Honey Hollow Ranch for our 2019 planning retreat. For two nights and three days, we enjoyed the main house on site that features multiple living spaces, a fully stocked kitchen, seven bedrooms, and well, we lost count of the bathrooms. The house is decorated with stunning artwork throughout. There was also a game room, bar, heated pool and hot tub, fire pit, and — the biggest hit of them all — an electronic massage chair that every mother dreams about.
Honey Hollow Extras
The main house sits on numerous acres of land about one hour north of Fort Worth. Not only is the stunning house part of H0ney Hollow Ranch’s allure, but also the land (hello, nature), the quiet and quaint feel, the livestock, and the gazebo area make it the perfect spot to get away — and in our case — get some work done.
Near the house are also 4,000 square feet of multi-purpose banquet hall space. It is a beautiful canvas easily converted to the venue of your dreams. Honey Hollow Ranch is most known for its weddings, which can be all-inclusive thanks to the vendor relationships curated by its staff. But Honey Hollow Ranch has so much potential BEYOND the wedding scene.
Our minds started going crazy with ideas. It’s the perfect location for team and corporate retreats like ours . . . family reunions . . . birthday parties (sending subtle hints to my husband for my 40th here) . . . retirement celebrations . . . holiday parties . . . church retreats . . . and on and on. With the built-in catering options it offers too, you can mark “feeding people” off your list. Oh, did we mention they can provide tables and chairs for 200? Everything you need — whether it is a small gathering of 10 or a group of a couple hundred– Honey Hollow Ranch can accommodate you.
Not only did Honey Hollow Ranch make our work retreat one to remember, but several other brands also showed their support of moms. Simply Soothing kept us mosquito-free and provided products for pampering. I mean, we HAD to use all those jetted tubs. We received other treats from J. Rae’s Bakery, Savor Patisserie, and Mama Baer Bakery. Signature Cuffs, Melt Spa and Massage, Modern Maison, DryBar, The Watershed Studio, Athleta, Jolin Promo, and Pogo Pass DFW provided prizes for the weekend.
I’d be remiss not to mention the jewel of a restaurant we discovered in Bridgeport: The Mask House. Y’all it was BEYOND DELICIOUS. (My love language is good food.) The old house turned chef-run eatery is darling. The dinner and wine were a home run. You might just find me there again for a date night with the mister.
While the rattling off of these perks from the FWMB retreat weekend may seem like a brag fest, it’s not. I promise. What these businesses did for us — seven moms who juggle all sorts of things in life — is priceless, really. They supported us by allowing us a quiet place away to focus on our work of supporting and encouraging families in the Tarrant County area. They refreshed us by providing places to sleep uninterrupted, products to relax and rejuvenate us, good food and sweets we didn’t have to share (ha!) to refuel us.
This weekend honed our focus and plotted our course for the ways we want to impact our community. These brands supported us in this endeavor, and we want to do what we can to share their passion with you, for you to know these are brands you can champion too.
