How to Celebrate Mother’s Day

April 15th, 2014 by Jenna Tackett

Each year for Mother’s Day, my siblings and I made the entire day a celebration: from breakfast in bed to a cup of peppermint tea before she went to sleep. Usually, we got her a gift and went fishing, mostly so she could relax by the lake. This year, you could pamper the strong ladies in your life in a similar way. There are several options Lookout Point can give you to consider this May.

  1. Lookout Point Cooking SchoolLearn new kitchen skills for your breakfast-in-bed plans by attending the Lookout Point Cooking School installment dedicated to Breakfast In Bed: An Art Form on May 9. Use quality ingredients to create a fresh, nutritious meal and a discerning eye to create a beautiful food presentation. As they say, pretty food tastes better! There is limited space for the class, so be sure to sign up soon.
  2. Bring your loved one to our Hot Springs Bed & Breakfast for a truly pampering getaway! Our guest rooms each have a view of Lake Hamilton, luxurious linens on comfortable beds, and a scrumptious breakfast each morning. You can take a walk in the garden, meditate on the labyrinth, or lounge in the sunroom and play a board game. Make the day all about relaxing, and all about her! (You can reserve your stay online anytime.)
  3. Give your beloved a gift certificate for a stay or an installment of the Cooking School ($50 per person, or $40 per person with a stay at the Inn). There will be several more classes this year, from Puff Pastry Magic on July 23, Cheesecake Heaven on Sept. 13, Soups—from Breakfast to Supper on Nov. 14, to Holiday Desserts on Dec. 6. We would love to welcome your loved one!

If you would like to learn more options for your Mother’s Day surprise, call 501.525.6155 for more information. We would love to help you plan your getaway!

Where to Discover Equine Art in Spa City

April 8th, 2014 by Jenna Tackett

Robin Young paintingRobin, one of the Innkeepers at Lookout Point, is known by our guests for her thoughtful hospitality in the evenings. She always has a recommendation handy and a smile on her face.

But before Robin was an Innkeeper, she was a professional artist. She had a gallery in Shepherdstown, West Virginia, and she exhibited her paintings at art festivals throughout the East Coast. Robin also served as Artist in Residence in Grand Teton National Park and Hot Springs National Park.

Within the past few months, Robin has started sharing her paintings in the Inn. These beautiful watercolors delight with their depictions of nature, and a few of them have actually found new homes with appreciative guests.

Although her landscapes are inspired by her travels through the American countryside, her new additions combine two of her passions—horses and painting. Influenced by her work with Give Me a Chance Equine Rescue, Robin is displaying an equine series in the common areas of the Inn. The art depicts thoroughbreds, influenced by the active racing season at Oaklawn. These pieces will certainly get you into the mood to see the Racing Festival of the South!

To see the full horse series, reserve a stay at our Arkansas Bed & Breakfast online or call 501.525.6155. Robin can give you the grand tour of her artwork while you enjoy a glass of wine from the Innkeeper’s Reception in the afternoon. She can even tell you about her favorite art galleries downtown, if you are interested in seeing more creative work while in Spa City.

Bird Watching in Arkansas

November 6th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

I believe one of the best bird watching places on the globe is right here in Hot Springs. One of the most effective ways to still your thoughts and slow down is to sit for a while and simply enjoy watching birds. Observing these fascinating creatures, especially in fall and winter, and paying attention to their life patterns recharges our battery, clears our mind and rekindles our soul.

With the holidays fast approaching what a wonderful way to calm our fast pace and enjoy the beautiful scenery by watching our fine feathered friends. At Lookout Point Inn we are seeing extraordinary birds on our feeders including finches, cardinals, tufted titmice, blue jays, woodpeckers and chickadees – to name a few.

We’d love to have you visit the inn and spend some time with our lovely array of Arkansas birds. Call for reservations @ 501.525.6155.

The Christmas Carol at The Rep in Little Rock

December 23rd, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

We immensely enjoyed The Christmas Carol (the musical) at Arkansas Repertory Theatre (The Rep) in Little Rock. “Our own” Adam Hose

Ray, Adam (aka Bob Crachit), Kristie, and mom

stars as Bob Cratchit, singing a tender duet with Tiny Tim. We call Adam “our own” because he is a beloved guest of Lookout Point.

Hailing from New York, whenever Adam is performing in the area, he considers our Hot Springs bed & breakfast home for an escape.

Congratulations to The Rep for a fantastic and successful production of Charles Dickens’ story of Christmas love. NOW I am ready for Christmas.
