April 10th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

Heidi and Ryan married in the inn’s gardens, with azaleas blooming and Lake Hamilton providing a gorgeous backdrop.  In his dress blues, and her lovely gown, the couple exchanged vows and of course celebrated with a kiss.

The photographer (Kelley Wilde) captured Ryan’s adoring gaze at his beautiful bride!  With a variety of sites in the gardens for weddings, they chose to get married under the crepe myrtle trees right along the Lake Hamilton seawall.  It’s a beautiful setting!

Hot Springs’ Labyrinth Inspires Reflection & Poetry

April 7th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

One of the truly unique features of Lookout Point’s lakeside gardens is the 11-circuit labyrinth.  If you’re unfamiliar with a labyrinth, it is a historic form of walking prayer and meditation.  Unlike a maze, the labyrinth has no dead ends.  Ours is modeled after the Chartres, France labyrinth from the 13th century!

The Inn's labyrinth

Recent guest David R., after walking the labyrinth, was inspired to write this poem. We are truly honored!

A Place That Breathes Deeply

A place that breathes deeply that falls off the hill

Dionysus lays waiting to fend off your ills.

You yield to the magic  of natures great feast

And drink in the nectar that quietens the beast.

Alone in the garden the labyrinth stands round

To take you to places without any sounds.

A spot in the center, the middle is thine

The future is here, Yes, eternity shines.

Foggy Autumn Morning on Lake Hamilton

Fog shrouded Lake Hamilton throughout breakfast, then cleared to a brilliant blue sky day.  Just in time for “Captain” Ray’s boat tour of the lake.

Motorcycle Rally, Hot Springs, Arkansas Sept 10-13

August 15th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Motorcycle Rally, Hot Springs
Motorcycle Rally, Hot Springs

Riders in Hot SpringsEach year, Hot Springs welcomes motorcyclists from around the region, celebrating the love of the road and the wind in the hair.  The Hot Springs area provides gorgeous scenic drives, with twists, turns, hills, and beauty. 

The 2009 rally starts Thursday, September 10, and concert highlights include Foghat and Blue Oyster Cult. 
Lookout Point Lakeside Inn loves to welcome motorcycle guests for the rally.  This year, covered parking is available for all bikes under the carport. 
In 2008, Hurricane Ike interrupted the rally—so this year’s rally offers T-shirts declaring “I survived Hurricane Ike”.  At the inn, power was out during the night, yet breakfast was ready and served to our surprised guests without a hitch.  (Of course, behind the scenes we were scrambling to improvise without electricity!)
We’d love to welcome the Motorcycle Rally participants to Lookout Point!  You can share in the fun and many activities of the rally in downtown Hot Springs, yet come away to the peace, luxury, and quiet offered at Lookout Point.  Plus your aching muscles might celebrate a soak in the jetted tubs. 
Sign up for the Hot Springs Rally, and come stay at Lookout Point for a fun weekend of riding.  Call 866-525-6155 to make a reservation, or book online  .

August Special at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn

August 13th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

It’s back to school season, and perhaps you’d like to sneak away for a couple of days before life gets too hectic.   We’re offering an August Special:  stay two nights anytime through the end of August.  You’ll receive one-half dozen chocolate covered strawberries in your room awaiting  your arrival, plus a chilled bottle of French Sparkling Wine (Risque by Toad Hollow) or a chilled bottle of sparkling juice. 

As an added bonus, the gardens are still lush and green.   From our Texas friends and guests, especially around the Austin area, we hear how dry and brown the earth is from the continuing drought.   That certainly isn’t the situation here on Lake Hamilton!  We’d love to see you, and hope you can get away for an end of summer trip.

Be sure to ask for the August Special.

Fishing is Great at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn!

July 25th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

One of mother nature’s unexpected “gifts” is a water fountain “pond” filled with brim.   I’m not a fisherperson, but it’s those lake fish with a blue spot on their sides.  There’s probably 100 brim in the pond, plus the 30 goldfish.  We are continually inviting guests to fish the brim, and release them the lake—-or take them home in their own cooler.  I’m not cooking the fish! 

Today our wonderful guest Raymond enjoyed some fishing in our pond, and caught 3 brim in a short amount of time.  Yeah!  The one goldfish snagged was happily released to swim with his friends. 

If you want some easy fishing, come on to Lookout Point.  Pull up a chair, sit in the shade, and fish away.  Sip on a glass of wine or beer, and RELAX.  

I haven’t figured out how to have a fishing tournament in our pond.  Any ideas?
