Wed at Lookout Point, Now 5th Anniversary!

December 22nd, 2008 by Ray Rosset

Doug & Donna, of Little Rock, were married 5 years ago at Lookout Point in this very same spot–in front of the fireplace. When they entered the inn 5 years ago, scouting out a Hot Springs location for their wedding, Donna knew immediately that this was the place. Since then, these wonderful guests have become dear friends of Lookout Point.

Each year, Donna & Doug have returned to Lookout Point for their anniversary, and on other occasions. As a traditionalist, Doug wanted “their’ room each stay–the Romance Room, but with Donna’s encouraging they’ve also stayed in Evening Shade, Lakeview Terrace Condo, and the Hot Springs Room. These special guests have learned the names of every Lookout Point staff member. Donna & Doug provided consulting services to the inn, assisting Ray & Kristie in finding the perfect people to work at the iinn and share the mission & vision of the inn.

Happy Anniversary, Doug & Donna

One of our many favorite events in Hot Springs is the monthly Gallery Walk, held the first Friday of every month from 5-9pm. Many guests are surprised to learn that Hot Springs has been named the 4th top arts community in the U.S. (right behind Santa Fe, NM).

The excellent art galleries downtown are all open for gallery walk, and many serve refreshments throughout the evening. You’ll find original art in all prices ranges, with much of the art created by outstanding local artists. Here’s a few of our favorite galleries that are a must visit during Gallery Walk: Blue Moon, Gallery Central, Alison Parsons, Legacy, Dolores Justis, and the Arts Cooperative.

Stroll these downtown art galleries, meet a few artists, and top off the evening dining at one of the excellent Hot Springs restaurants. Or, pick up a meal to go, and return to the inn for your own romantic and private dinner setting.
