Better Homes & Gardens Blog Brags on Hot Springs

February 26th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

The editor of Better Homes & Gardens Country Gardens magazine,

BHG Country Gardens editor James Baggett

James Baggett recently included Hot Springs, Garvan Gardens, and our inn in the  BHG blog.  It was our honor to welcome James to the inn!He’s been a magazine editor for 30 years, and he is full of life, and great ideas. Rarely one to sit still, when he had a few extra minutes James could be found in our gardens, deadheading flowers.

When James asked if he could re-pot our house plants, I was speechless! Within a week of his departure, our houseplants had all been lovingly tended.

Here’s James’ comments about our Hot Springs B&B:

But the highlight of my too-short visit had to be my impeccable accommodations at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn. Nestled in the Ouachita Mountains overlooking a serene bay of Lake Hamilton, the inn—built in 2003 in the Arts and Crafts architectural style—is surrounded by pretty manicured gardens and pathways and waterfalls that lead to the lake itself, where turtles gently paddle near the water’s edge. Innkeepers Ray and Kristie Rosset have created a labyrinth for guests to explore, above. (Remember, you get lost in a maze and find yourself in a labyrinth.) While I slowly followed the twists and turns of the labyrinth, hummingbirds were busy sipping nectar from the many flowering shrubs and perennials that line the paths that crisscross this idyllic getaway. Like I said, it’s especially comforting to reflect on just such an escape at precisely this time of year.

 

Thank you, James! We would love to welcome YOU to enjoy Hot Springs, Garvan Gardens,  our inn, and perhaps find yourself in our labyrinth.

Fall Colors Add Beauty to Arkansas

October 30th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

We chose  Arkansas for the site of our bed & breakfast inn, because it’s an extraordinarily beautiful state. Every autumn

Early Autumn on Lake Hamilton

I am awestruck by the sheer goodness of being here: perfect temperatures with low humidity, stunning views across the lake, and a riot of color.

Peak fall colors for our area are predicted for early to mid-November. Yet guests were still enjoying breakfast outdoors on the patio this week, while overlooking the lake and Ouachita Mountains.

For stunning yellow, red, and orange foliage, come on to Hot Springs. We’ll steer you to fantastic drives and hikes for the best views.

Wedding Couple Depart by Canoe on Lake Hamilton

October 2nd, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

Dressed in their wedding finery, Alicia and Michael decided to depart via Lookout Point’s canoe! It’s a bit tricky getting into a canoe while attired in wedding clothes, but this fun couple were determined, and no one got wet!

Just married!

Of course while out on the lake, Michael had to throw in a line.

Beautiful bride!

We specialize in intimate and unique Hot Springs weddings.  The inn’s lakeside gardens create a beautiful site. There’s even a stone altar in the gardens, for those wanting more of a “church” feel while outdoors.

Congratulations, Alicia & Michael! We wish all the best for you.

Labor Day Weekend Fireworks & Fun in Hot Springs

August 24th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

Labor Day Weekend, traditionally seen as the close to the summer season, finds lots of fun events in Hot Springs. Of course, water sports tops the list of a great way to relax and say farewell to summer.  If you’re planning to rent a boat, do so right away!

Friday evening check out Gallery Walk in the historic downtown. You’ll see gorgeous art in all prices, meet the artists, and sip a glass of wine. Fun!

Saturday morning our own “Capt. Ray” provides a 90-minute boat tour of Lake Hamilton for guests of our Hot Springs bed & breakfast. Hear the stories of the mansions, and history of the lake.

Fireworks over Lake Hamilton

Fireworks over Lake Hamilton explode on Sunday evening. I love to hear the resounding echoes of the fireworks, bouncing around the lake, off the docks, and the mountains! The best fireworks viewing is from either J&S Italian Villa (reserve early!) or the Bell Riverboat fireworks cruise.

A Little History Lesson on Our Beautiful Lake Hamilton in Hot Springs, Arkansas

July 28th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

Of course everyone knows of Hot Springs, Arkansas as the “The Spa City”. Hot Springs is ripe with day spas and massage parlors. Bathhouse row, located in the historic district downtown, is one of the town’s biggest draws with the historical significance in and of itself. But what about the lakes? Here in Hot Springs, we know how to spend the summer!

First, a little history lesson…

Hot Springs is home to one of Arkansas’s aptly named “Diamond Lakes”.

And oh how they sparkle! Look!

In addition to being truly beautiful, the diamond lakes are also useful! Who knew?! Lake Hamilton, for example, was created by Arkansas Power & Light in 1932 with the vision of harnessing the natural power of running water to generate hydro-electricity. This would ensure the town could continue to support growth. With the installment of Carpenter dam a success, Lake Hamilton was born!
Lake Hamilton is over 7,000 acres of fun and not to mention some of the best fishing in the state. Residents and tourist alike get out on the water to cool off during the summer. At any given time, one would see jet skis, inner tubes, pontoon boats and skiers taking advantage of the spacious lake. Off of the main channel, you can find residents floating along in their canoes, paddle boats, and even simple inflatable rafts. Much of the lake is lined with condos, houses, and restaurants.
Visit Hot Springs!  Relax! Experience the beauty of Lake Hamilton for yourself!
