Lookout Point featured in Dallas Morning News

April 29th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

romantic whirlpool tubsFrom the Dallas Morning News, April 17, 2009:  18 Romantic Getaways in Texas and Neighboring States.  Special Contributor Judy Wiley writes “Exotic honeymoon choices looked good about a year ago. And then, as if brides-to-be didn’t have enough to worry about, the economic crisis slammed into their wedding budgets.”  Cutting back on the dress, the wedding site, and the rings isn’t likely to happen.  So Wiley suggests great honeymoon destinations in Texas and the surrounding states.

Lookout Point Lakeside Inn is featured from Arkansas, and we’re honored!  Called a hot spot, and “mighty pretty”, Lookout Point offers several honeymoon packages and wedding packages.  Our rooms fill up quickly in the summertime, so if you’re seeking the perfect romantic and private honeymoon site, call the inn (501-525-6155) soon.

Visiting the PAII trade show, Atlanta

Ray & I are attending a terrific innkeepers conference–the annual meeting of the best minds in the innkeeping industry at the Professional Association of Innkeepers International  Conference, held this year in Atlanta.  Oh my gosh, my head is spinning with the terrific, cutting edge ideas that I’ve learned, particulary in the technology field.   Hmmm…. link the blog with my Facebook page and Twitter, plus upload area videos on 40plus sites.  When I entered this beloved profession of innkeeping, I had NO CONCEPT of the need to become techno savvy!   Yet I’m learning, and will continue to learn.  While still seeking to serve great breakfasts and the finest in care and hospitality to our wonderful guests. 

A very fun aspect of the PAII conference is the trade show.  Peter Deneen (0ur potter), featured in the photo, has created some great new colors of mugs that we ordered.  What other trade show can you tweak your online presence, order vacuum cleaners, taste waffles, and touch wonderful high thread count sheets?    Of course, when we attend these exciting conferences, we return to Lookout Point Lakeside Inn with about 50 action plans to implement.  We learn so much from fellow innkeepers.  Yet we also learn lots of tips and ideas from our guests.  If you have creative ideas for your favorite :) innkeepers, we’d love to see your comments. 
We look forward to our return to the inn on Saturday, and especially give thanks to our wonderful staff (especially Tricia, Warren, & Susan) for taking great care of the inn and guests in our absence.
