Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Hot Springs!

December 8th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

New Year’s weekend is a great time to celebrate life and love at our Hot Springs B&B! At midnight, we’ll have a glass of bubbly sparkling wine

New Year's Toast

(our guests love the Toad Hollow Risque that we serve) for your toast, and even a pot of black eyed peas for extra good measure.

Create a memorable start to the New Year with your loved one. Here’s our suggestions for a perfect weekend:

Friday: arrive at Lookout Point & begin relaxing. Dine at Luna Bella (reservations recommended)

Saturday:  After your gourmet breakfast, visit the downtown Hot Springs National Park, and take a soak in the thermal waters at the Quapaw bath house. Explore art galleries and museums downtown

Return to the inn for the afternoon Innkeeper’s Reception (refreshments plus wine/tea). Take a little nap.

Visit the final evening of the Lights on the Landscape at Garvan Woodland Gardens with a lovely stroll through the gardens.

Enjoy a late dinner at Bohemia (continental cuisine). The New Year’s Eve special is 4 courses for only $24! Great food, and friendly service. Reservations required, and we’ll take of all concierge for you.

Midnight: celebrate at the inn with a complimentary toast and some black-eyed peas.  The night is still young! What a great way to welcome 2012.

Our silken microfiber sheets

We use these sheets at our Hot Springs B&B, and at our home. They get softer and softer as they age, the sheets wick moisture, and look like new for years to come. (Guaranteed by the company–if ever there is a problem, just let us know and we’ll take care of it!)

The sheets are available in white, ivory, tea green and chocolate colors. The Queen sets are $165,  King $179 and shipping to your home is free!  The set includes a deep-pocket fitted sheet, flat sheet and 2 pillowcases.

Favorite Ice Cream scoops in Hot Springs, Arkansas

May 30th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

Ahh, sitting outside on a warm evening, enjoying a great scoop or two or three homemade ice cream.

Triple Ice Cream scoops

Here’s our favorite ice cream spots in Hot Springs:

1.  Nom Noms, Mexican Grill-N- Chill. Who would have thought a Mexican grill rates with fantastic homemade ice cream? In a non-descript former fast food building, this place rocks. I tried the strawberry sorbet with cake batter, and Ray had nutella heath icecream.  Smooth as silk.

2. Scoops Ice Cream. Scoops is probably the better known, and is a very popular ice cream spot.  Great flavors and friendly service.

When you stay at our Hot Springs bed & breakfast, we promise to send you to ALL of the best spots in the area.

Our Hot Springs bed & breakfast hosts many significant birthday celebrations, and we love the joy and laughter surrounding the events.  This spring, two different groups of life-long friends celebrated in big ways.

You’re invited to celebrate a birthday at Lookout Point, whether in a romantic fashion for just the two of you, or with your dearest friends.

Staying Fit at Lookout Point: A New Partnership

May 7th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Meeting the needs of our guests is the top priority of Lookout Point. More and more travelers seek to stay fit while enjoying a vacation, so we’ve partnered with the nearby Hot Springs Health & Fitness. With the negotiated discounted rate, our guests will save some money, too.

With a certificate from the inn, our guests may participate in day long activities at the fitness center, from yoga and zumba classes to the wide array of exercise equipment and weights. An added bonus are the two outdoor pools (one for kiddos and a larger pool, including lap lanes).

Of course, you’re welcome to swim in the lake. Beach towels provided. Or nap in the hammock. :)

Yesterday we welcomed an ornithologist to Lookout Point.  Within an hour of his arrival at the inn, David spotted :

  • Canada Goose
  • mallard
  • great blue heron
  • turkey vulture
  • mourning dove
  • chimney swift
  • bank swallow
  • barn swallow
  • purple martin
  • red-headed woodpecker
  • tufted titmouse
  • American robin
  • cedar waxwing
  • great crested flycatcher
  • blue jay
  • northern cardinal
  • red-winged blackbird
  • brown-headed cowbird
  • common grackle (these could go away!)
  • rose-breasted grosbeak
  • song sparrow
  • chipping sparrow
  • house finch
  • house sparrow
  • carolina wren

Many of the birds are now nesting on the property, including the mallards.  Watching the birds helps me to not take life too seriously.  Somehow, I feel lighter.  Thank you, David, for identifying some of our feathered friends.

Muses Creativity Week Enjoys Tea at Lookout Point

April 3rd, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Lookout Point Lakeside In hosted the participants of the Muses Creativity Week for high tea and a labyrinth walk last Sunday.  While sipping on tea and savoring scones, the group delighted to the amazing music of Shana Norton, harpist from Austin, Texas.  This was a first for the inn–the soothing harp melodies wafting throughout.  Shana treated us to one of her own compositions, entitled “Spa Day” written after a day of relaxation at a Hot Springs bath house.   What a blissful moment!

The Muses, under the direction of talented Deleen Davidson, is a creative artistry project, blending fine art, classical music, and creative education.  The Spring Creativity Week embraced art, music, poetry, and dance.   How appropriate to end a dynamic and creative week with a walk on the labyrinth, offering a time of centering and peace.  Thank you, Muses!

Sure Sign of Spring’s Arrival at Lookout Point Inn

March 27th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

For five years Ricky and Lucy have arrived by mid-March.  Last week we wondered, where are they?   These lovely mallards returned to their summer “home” in time to delight guests at the Innkeeper’s Reception on Friday.

Each year, these two become a bit more brave, although as you can tell from the photo Lucy still does not like to have photos taken.   This morning, they dined below the bird feed while guests enjoyed their breakfast.  Then off to the waterfalls & our pond for a swim and nap.

Ricky & Lucy aren’t talking about their trip, nor why they arrived more than a week late.  We’re left guessing.  And grateful for their appearance and the wonderful rhythm of life.
