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.

Chocolate at Lookout Point

August 5th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Chocolate Covered StrawberriesIt’s that special day of the week at the inn: Chocolate Covered Wednesdays! Around here, we love Wednesdays. If you’re a chocolate lover, what’s not to love about this day?

This morning for breakfast we served strawberry fruit sundaes with chocolate syrup drizzled on top!  At our reception this afternoon we will have chocolate cookies and chocolate covered strawberries. Our guests will return from dinner to a small chocolate bag of hearts on their door. Chocolate kisses and M&Ms are also located throughout the inn.

Chocolate covered Wednesdays are a perfect way to heal a chocolate craving. To cure your sweet tooth, call Kristie at the inn and reserve your room!


More Fishing at Lookout Point in Hot Springs!

July 26th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Coffee in hand, two fishing rods, bucket of fresh worms, and a small pond filled with fish—what more could a fisherman want early in the morning?  Fishing at Lookout Pointprize catchRaymond caught at least a dozen bream (or blue gill, as I’ve been informed).    He was heading home to provide a fish cookout for friends this evening.  Thank you for thinning out the lake fish from our pond!  12 down, over 100 to go. 

Our gardener, Pat, tells us that he’s actually seen a bass, at least 16 inches long, in the pond.  Who knew???

So, you’re welcome to bring your rod and reel, and fish the lazy way at Lookout Point.  Catch & release (into Lake Hamilton) OR take ’em home.   When Ray & I created a luxury inn with lots of amenities, we did  not know just how many amenities Lookout Point Lakeside Inn would actually include!  Ha…


Lookout Point Wedding on Lake Hamilton

July 3rd, 2009 by Kristie Rosset

Katie and JoshuaIt was a joy to be a part of the Jennings wedding last Sunday at Lookout Point.  Katie looked gorgeous in her gown as she walked down the aisle on her father’s arm.  Her daughter Analee walked in front with her miniature bouquet.  She was a beautiful little angel!  

Katie’s brother played the guitar as Katie walked down the aisle.  The ceremony took place in the garden near the waterfall.  The couple and Analee participated in a sand union using white, black and pink sand.  The sand unity was just lovely, and the perfect touch for their wedding. 

Congratulations Katie and Joshua on your marriage!  Best wishes for a long happy life together!

Congratulations to a lovely couple!

Congratulations to a Lovely Couple!

The rain ceased in time for Valerie & JC to celebrate their wedding outdoors, with great photos taken in the gardens. Photographer Kelley captured this lovely photo, highlighting Valerie’s soft pink dress, and radiant smiles. Surrounded by loving parents, the couple exchanged vows under the shelter of the outdoor dining plaza, in front of the waterfalls. It is such a privilege to participate, even in small ways, with these great moments in life.

Best wishes to great folks, in all your new adventures in life!

April 18th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Lake Catherine State Park, waterfallsOn a recent hike to Lake Catherine State Park, just a short 20 minute from Lookout Point, Ray & I enjoyed the many different waterfalls. After recent rains, the water was briskly flowing! The hike provided a great opportunity to talk, appreciate the beauty of Arkansas, and laugh. This moment ispired us to create a “Waterfalls & Picnic Package”. The package includes a map to the best waterfalls, an excellent backpack stocked with picnic fixings, plates, silverware, wine–and you get to take the stocked backpack home. Also included are admission to the Garvan Woodland Gardens, another great site to enjoy waterfalls. Call the inn (501-525-6155) to reserve your Waterfalls & Picnic Package, and get out there to enjoy nature.<

Arkansas Derby Today at Oaklawn, Hot Springs

April 11th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

akransas-derby1It’s quiet at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn this afternoon, with most of our guests attending the Arkansas Derby today at Oaklawn Jockey Club. Folks at the inn have travelled from Florida, Illinois, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Arkansas to attend the biggest race day of the year for Oaklawn.

The day is splendid, without a cloud in the sky. With spring is bursting forth in radiant splashes of color, with azaleas, dogwoods, cherry blossoms, irises, and even the knockout roses blooming. We could not ask for a more perfect day to spend outside. Best of luck to all of our guests! (We’re told that the horse, Point Lookout, won a race yesterday. Made us happy that our “namesake” won the race.)

Tomorrow: Easter Sunrise service at 7:00 on the Lookout Point labyrinth.


Hot Springs Wedding Destination

April 5th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

A beautiful spring day welcomed Christie and Brian to the start of their married life.  The wedding was held lakeside, with immediate family and two lovely little girls attending the wedding. 

Joyful smiles!
Joyful smiles!

Of course, at the end of the wedding ceremony I invited the happy couple to celebrate this moment with a kiss.  And little Jaylyn squealed, “No, don’t!”, grimaced, and turned away.  Pretty funny. 

All of us at Lookout Point sincerely wish abundant blessings to Brian and Christie throughout their married life.  We consider it a true honor to welcome and host weddings at Lookout Point.  Plus I enjoy officiating and creating the wedding ceremony that is personal for each couple.
