Fabulous Fall Escape to Hot Springs

September 6th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

One of my favorite times of year is quickly approaching. Cooler days and the beauty of the fall season bring such a refreshing change of pace. The break from the heat itself increases my energy level and makes me want to be outside enjoying the splendor that autumn brings.

Lookout Point Lakeside Inn

Autumn in Hot Springs

To honor the season we’ve prepared a “Leaves, Lakes and Waterfalls Package”, to encourage you to take a break and come spend a few days with at Lookout Point. Enjoy the colorful foliage in the Ouachita Mountains and the serenity on Lake Hamilton. The ducks, geese and birds are plentiful during the season and fascinating to watch in the early morning or late afternoon as they prepare for their migration.

With the cooler breezes and the gorgeous leaves comes a sense of relaxation and slowing of pace to let your spirits soar and your mind slow down. The great hiking trails leading to some awe-inspiring waterfalls are picturesque during this time of year.

Our “Leaves, Lakes and Waterfalls” package includes (avail Oct 1-Nov 30):

  • 3 nights at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn, recently named one of the top 10 B&B/Inns in the U.S. by Trip Advisor for 2012
  • Spectacular lake view from every room

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.
