A summer highlight for guests is viewing terrific fireworks
Fireworks over Lake Hamilton
over Lake Hamilton on the long holiday weekends (Memorial, July 4th, and Labor Day). This past weekend, Lookout Point Inn joined forces with other business leaders to sponsor the fireworks show.
Many of our guests enjoyed the show from the deck of The Belle Riverboat (they offer a fireworks cruise). She departs about 30 minutes before the fireworks begin, and provides an awesome view. Another great viewing option is from the outside dining area of J&S Italian Villa. But you’ll need to make reservations early!
Of course, we gladly make reservations for our guests at either location for viewing the fireworks. We invite you to stay at our lakeside Hot Springs B&B for a fun summer vacation!

Many vacationers from around the globe will visit the new world-acclaimed Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art
Crystal Bridges Art Museum
in Bentonville, Arkansas, this summer. The highly-touted museum opened in November and has masterworks ranging from the Colonial period to current day and includes such well-known artists as Norman Rockwell, Andy Warhol and Georgia O’Keeffe and has received significant funding from the Walton Family Foundation.
For those planning to visit the museum, why not add a couple of days onto your trip and boogie on down to Hot Springs – only 200 miles from Bentonville? We’d love to have you stay at our luxury inn on Lake Hamilton and play in our town at the many fun, interesting places in the area.
One of my favorites is the Garvan Woodland Gardens, a spectacular outdoor botanical nature area featuring gorgeous flora and fauna, 4 ½ miles of wooded shoreline on Lake Hamilton and the beautiful floor-to-ceiling glass Anthony Chapel situated inside the gardens. There is nothing quite like it!
Of course, there are other fun things to do in Hot Springs as well, including:
- Magic Springs theme park
- Mid-America Science Museum
- The National Park and Bath House Row
- Water sports and fishing on the beautiful lakes
- Excellent art galleries in the historic downtown
- Fine Dining
Pairing a visit to the world-renowned Crystal Bridges Museum with a trip to Hot Springs and a stay at Lookout Point Inn would certainly seem like the perfect vacation.

At Lookout Point, we provide comprehensive pampering and concierge services. Which means that we make dining suggestions every day. Fortunately, Hot Springs enjoys a multitude of really good restaurants!
Here’s our FAVORITE FIVE and WHY we love them:
1. Luna Bella. Fabulous food, artfully and freshly prepared by a top-notch chef, in a lovely setting. Added bonus: very convenient and close to Lookout Point. Type of food: Italian American Fusion. Try: pear endive salad or buttery scallops.
2. Bohemia. Described as continental cuisine, and located north of the historic downtown in a funky building. Chef/owner really cares about his food. Try: Petit Jean lamb (local).
3. Central Park Fusion. Located in the historic downtown, featuring world class dining. Type of food: fusion from around the globe. Try: one of their steaks. Note: nice decor but can get quite loud on busy nights.
4. Rolando’s. Downtown. Check out their outdoor dining option, tucked into the side of a mountain, with live music in the evenings. Type of food: nuevo Latino. Try: the cubano platter.
5. J & S Italian Villa. Great views of the lake from this friendly restaurant. Bonus: piano bar with live entertainment, plus it’s close to the inn. Type of food: Italian. Try: chicken verona.
Of course, we’ll be delighted to make reservations for you when you are enjoying a great stay at our Hot Springs B&B/ inn!

In honor of the special Mom or Dad in your life, we’d like to suggest a weekend at Lookout Point Inn as your unique gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day or as a combined gift for both of them.
Pamper your Parents with a special weekend or weekday gift at the inn to say “thank you for all you’ve done to help me become the person I am today.”
Most Moms love chocolates and wine, a massage, time in the gardens at the inn or walking the labyrinth. Of course, there’s always shopping in downtown or visiting Garvan Gardens.
Dads can make it a golf weekend, schedule an outing with Captain Ray on Lake Hamilton , take the canoe out for the afternoon, or get the knots out with a relaxing massage.
Sunsets at Lookout Point are spectacular followed by a gourmet dinner at one of the fine dining restaurants in Hot Springs.
Give us a call @ 501-525-6155 or 866-525-6155 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how you’d like to honor your special Mom or Dad. We’ll offer suggestions, help you make all the reservations and send you a gift certificate for their stay.

In a stroll through the gardens on this fine day, the blooms are truly eye candy. Besides the magnolias, hydrangeas, gardenias, Brazilian verbena, lilies, and butterfly bush, our feathered friends provided amusement.
Cardinals, ducks “Ricky & Lucy”, finches, mourning doves, robins, and scores of other birds were feasting, playing, and bathing in the gardens. The nest of baby robins will soon be empty.
We invite you to come enjoy a splendid space for relaxation and beauty at our Hot Springs B&B!

If you haven’t stayed in a bed and breakfast or an inn recently or ever, you’re missing pure pleasure in travel adventure.
Years ago bed & breakfasts conjured up visions of old Victorian houses that smelled funny and had white doilies (looks like a crocheted placemat that your grandmother made) on every table top. That just isn’t the case anymore. Take a look at the Death to Doilies video and make your next reservation at a bed and breakfast. We would especially love having you visit us at Lookout Point Inn in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Here you’ll have an escapade of pure pampering and luxury.
Lookout Point is the vision Ray and I had years ago to provide a beautiful, serene setting on Lake Hamilton that would serve as a sanctuary of peace and tranquility for our special guests who were looking for a place to relax and unplug.
If you have never had a bed and breakfast experience or it’s been a long time since you treated yourself, you’ll be amazed at the extraordinary opportunity that awaits you. —- by Kristie Rosset

On a gorgeous April day, with a perfectly blue sky and slight breeze, Jeff and Tracy exchanged vows at Lookout Point.
Congrats, Jeff & Tracy!
Standing before family and friends, the couple chose the lakeside labyrinth for the site of their lakeside garden wedding.
Tracy’s stylish bridesmaids carried yellow bouquets, and the chairs were also adorned with yellow pom-poms.
Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish you all the best.
There are many good reasons to choose a stress-free intimate wedding. Give us a call, and we’ll be pleased to assist you.

At Lookout Point Inn we love dogs and because of that we really love to welcome pooches at the inn along with their owners.
Ray and I have had numerous dogs in our lives throughout the years, each with funny and touching stories. When we were planning the inn, we decided to make sure we could accommodate dogs – from tiny to large breed – when they traveled with their owners.
When we have our guests’ special four-legged
Water loving dog, Nikki
friends stay with us, they are welcomed with a gift including custom-made doggie treats. Of course, they also receive their own personal welcome letter.
Please let us know you’re bringing your furry friend when you make reservations and we’ll be sure you are reserved in one of our dog-friendly rooms (four of our rooms are dog-friendly with direct access to the gardens). We can help plan a perfect dog-friendly itinerary during your stay in Hot Springs.
As far as we know, Lookout Point Inn is the only Hot Springs B&B/Inn to welcome dogs. We look forward to pampering your special family member on your next visit.
