Lookout Point Package lifted off Wheel of Fortune

October 1st, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Yesterday’s ten seconds of fame for Lookout Point, featured on the Wheel of Fortune, flew by!  We appreciate all the comments that we have received from the friends and fans of Lookout Point.  The inn’s package on the wheel was on the way to being won by a contestant, until she lost her turn suddenly.  The Room With A View Week highlighted the gorgeous and calm lakeviews found at the inn, and the announcer butchered the pronounciation of the Ouachita Mountains, seen from the inn.  Of course, most people mispronounce the word, correctly pronounced “Waw’-chi-taw.

Watching the show was surreal, and the 10 seconds flew by.  Yet it was an honor to be asked to provide a package.   And we certainly wish a contestant had won.  What did you think of the show?

Lookout Point on the Wheel of Fortune, TOMORROW, Sept. 30, 2009

September 29th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

You are invited to watch Wheel of Fortune tomorrow, September 30, to see a prize on the wheel from Lookout Point Lakeside Inn!  It will be exciting to hear Pat Sajak and Vanna White talk about the inn.  Certainly we hope a contestant wins the week long stay packed with great Hot Springs activities.  We hope you’ll watch Wheel of Fortune tomorrow, and provide some feedback on this blog or Facebook.

Frequently we hear,  “Wow!  How did you get on Wheel of Fortune?”  Bedandbreakfast.com is the exclusive contact for bed & breakfast prizes on the Wheel.  In April, we were contacted by Bedandbreakfast.com, asking if we were interested in providing a package for “Rooms With A View” week.  With an enthusiastic yes, we provided the details of a weeklong package, B-roll (video used for television), plus photos and descriptions of the inn.  During the summer, we learned that Lookout Point was selected.  The show was taped on August 6, and now the time is here.  Thanks for watching!

Lookout Point Inn's September Special Offer

Relax with dinner at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn

Relax with dinner at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn

Fall is just weeks away, and it’s one of my very favorite seasons!  There’s a hint of coolness in the air at night, the humidity is down, and relaxing outside in the gardens of Lookout Point delights the senses. 

If you can getaway throughout September, we’re offering to provide your dinner for one night:  complimentary!  Many guests tell us that they don’t want to leave the inn, even to go eat.  To accommodate this request, we started serving simple and healthy fare from 11am-9pm.  A bowl of soup, organic green salad, or sandwich (chicken salad on croissant or grilled ham & cheese or grilled turkey & cheese) provide a lovely “dining in” experience.  You can sit by the waterfalls, and relax.

Stay two weeknights (Sun -Thur) in September, and you’ll receive a complimentary dinner for two (choice of two selections each).  The September Special is not available with any other promotions, and must be mentioned at the time of reservation.

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  .
