And They’re Off! Live Thoroughbred Racing at Oaklawn Jockey Club

January 10th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Live Racing Begins Jan 15, 2010

Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas launches the 2010 race season with four days of live racing, beginning Friday, January 10.   The annual back-in-time Saturday features bargain 50 cent corned beef sandwiches (Oaklawn has GREAT corned beef) and 10 cent soft drinks.  Such a deal, if you don’t mind waiting in line!

Oaklawn has the highest attendance of any live race meet in the U.S., with enthusiastic fans, trainers, and owners coming from all over the country.   Since I know nothing about racing, I enjoy watching the horses, jockeys, and people studying the racing forms.   While we serve breakfast at the inn, guests pore over the morning’s guides, circling in on their favs.

Come visit Lookout Point and Hot Springs during the race meet!  We’ll be happy to make reservations for you at Oaklawn Park.

December 10th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Hot Springs, Arkansas Bath House RowOur delightful and beloved town, Hot Springs, Arkansas was named one of the TOP FIVE travel destinations in the United States in 2010 by Trip Advisor!  According to Trip Advisor, the top consumer generated travel review site in the world, Hot Springs ranked #3 in their top travel destination for 2010, just behind Seward, Alaska and Hyannis, Massachusetts.   Completing the list of the Top Five travel destinations are Chinle, Arizona and Waimea, Hawaii.

Although we’re obviously partial, we think Hot Springs is one of the most beautiful and friendly places on the earth.  At the inn, waking up to the calming lake views and the low lying Ouachitas Mountains, hearing the birds sing, and smelling the freshly ground coffee brewing starts the day perfectly.  Yes, we’re partial. And we are so grateful to live in this fantastic town!  It’s a pleasure to see Trip Advisor recognize this jewel of a city.

Beautiful Lakeside Wedding at Lookout Point

October 12th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

It it such a great feeling to be a part of a couple’s special day, and this day was very special for Stephanie and Rodney Gibbs.  According to the family of this recently married couple, their marriage has been a long time coming.  The couple has been dating since they were fifteen years old, which is a trend in the family, because Stephanie’s brother and his wife also started dating when they were fifteen.  An intimate ceremony took place on the peaceful labyrinth and the reception followed in the dining room.  A beautiful bride and her handsome groom both gleamed with joy as members of the family came forward and toasted the newlyweds.  It was a lovely wedding for this sweet couple and their loving family!

We wish you two the best of luck and a happy marriage filled with lots of love and gorgeous children.  Also, best of luck with the twin girls on the way!
