Celebrate Birthdays With Friends in Hot Springs

June 20th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

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.

The East Side Girls of Little Rock

The East Side girls, all formerly of Little Rock, gathered from across the country to renew friendships and celebrate.   Friends since junior high, many of these women were the first graduation class from the Little Rock Central High School following integration.

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.

Hot Springs Music Festival Conductor Welcomed

June 17th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Last week Lookout Point Lakeside Inn experienced the joy of welcoming the talented guest conductor Pierre Simard, of Montreal Canada.  Joined by his enthusiastic wife, Nadya (a professional sopranist), the couple made fast friends with every person they met at the inn.  Hot Springs Music Festival Conductor, guest at Lookout Point Inn

Conducting the Festival Symphony Orchestra, Simard’s spirited gifts coaxed the very best of these talented musicians from around the world.  The opening overture, Wagner’s Tannhauser, left the crowd in holy awe, resulting in a standing ovation.  Well done, maestro!

He’s conducting a Valentine’s concert, with Nadya singing, on February 19 on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  Who wants to go?  We do!

Culinary Class for Innkeepers at Rockefeller Institute

February 22nd, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Lookout Point innkeepers Ray, Annette, and Kristie are attending the statewide Bed and Breakfast Association of Arkansas Conference 2010, kicking off with a lively cooking class.  Held at the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute high atop Petit Jean Mountain, the center provides a state of the art culinary and meeting facility.    The institute chefs demo’d Deconstructed Eggs Benedict, Roesti (a potato dish from Sweden), candied bacon, and breakfast parfait using baked oatmeal.    The eager innkeepers then gathered in the cooking lab to test our hands at the dishes.  The noise level soared, with 25 chefs seeking pots, preferred knives, and of course different spices to add our own take on the recipes.

And then we tasted the creations…yum!  We’ll definintely be adding Deconstructed Eggs Benedict to the Lookout Point menus.  Ray conquered his hollandaise fears!  And Annette’s Candied Bacon tasted divine.

Jan. 15 Birthday Celebrations at Lookout Point

January 9th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

CMartin Luther King, Jr.ome celebrate birthdays with cake and refreshments on January 15!  It’s a big day:  the hero of my childhood, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have turned 81 on January 15.  That’s reason enough to celebrate.  His life and his death had a big impact upon me and our country!

As a child moving to Arkansas during the days of segregation, I felt in my soul the pain of separation and prejudice based upon color.  I didn’t understand the separate drinking fountains and entrances.  Hearing Dr. King speak, stirrings of hope and truth rang clear. 

Believing that all life is a gift, I think the day of our births are worthy of celebration.  January 15 is also my birthday, and I’m honored to have been born on Martin Luther King’s day! 

I invite you to come stay at Lookout Point, have a slice of celebratory cake and a glass of wine or tea, and share a dream.  I hope to see you on my birthday.  :)

Fall Colors Peaking in Hot Springs

November 11th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Fall colors at Lookout Point

Fall colors at Lookout Point

Fall colors, according to the Arkansas.com website, for the Hot Springs area are at peak, or just peaked.  We’re seeing orange, yellow, brown, and some red leaves.  Many trees are stunning gorgeous, and some have lost most all of their foliage.  Bottom line, it’s not too late to experience fall colors here in Hot Springs.  The inn has a limited number of rooms still available for this weekend, including a couple of rooms available for the Friday night only.

The weather should be gorgeous–a perfect time to visit Hot Springs and do some hiking.  Or napping.  Or exploring art galleries.  Or….the possibilities are endless.

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?

Easter Sunrise at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn, Hot Springs

April 12th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

easter-09-001Every Easter, I have the great privilege of celebrating Easter with a sunrise service on our lakeside garden labyrinth. This morning the rains held off until after the service, the birds sang out in loud chorus, and we heard the holy resurrection story from the Gospel of Mark, in both English and Spanish. Guests, staff, and friends are gently invited to the service. Our guests tell us that they feel invited, but not pressured in any way to attend. Some watch the service from their windows, others savor much needed sleep.
A blessed Easter to all!
