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?

Lookout Point on the Wheel of Fortune, TOMORROW, Sept. 30, 2009

September 29th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

You are invited to watch Wheel of Fortune tomorrow, September 30, to see a prize on the wheel from Lookout Point Lakeside Inn!  It will be exciting to hear Pat Sajak and Vanna White talk about the inn.  Certainly we hope a contestant wins the week long stay packed with great Hot Springs activities.  We hope you’ll watch Wheel of Fortune tomorrow, and provide some feedback on this blog or Facebook.

Frequently we hear,  “Wow!  How did you get on Wheel of Fortune?”  Bedandbreakfast.com is the exclusive contact for bed & breakfast prizes on the Wheel.  In April, we were contacted by Bedandbreakfast.com, asking if we were interested in providing a package for “Rooms With A View” week.  With an enthusiastic yes, we provided the details of a weeklong package, B-roll (video used for television), plus photos and descriptions of the inn.  During the summer, we learned that Lookout Point was selected.  The show was taped on August 6, and now the time is here.  Thanks for watching!

Nancy & David wed at Lookout Point

On June 1, 2009 Nancy and David exchanged vows in the gardens of Lookout Point Lakeside Inn.  It was an honor to officiate at their wedding, and share in this high holy moment!   Following is an excerpt from Nancy: 

Just wanted to tell you how very pleased and happy we were with our wedding at your beautiful inn last week!  We couldnt have asked for a more lovely setting to begin our life together. The grounds are so beautifully maintained and the romantic Hot Springs Suite was a dream come true. We will both remember the extremely touching ceremony for the rest of our lives.

I wanted Ray to see how well he did snapping photos. These are just a few of them and they will all be treasured forever.

Words can’t express how appreciative we are for the kindness and grace shown to us by you, Ray and members of your staff.

Thank you again,  Nancy

 

We wish all the best to David and Nancy!

Things to do in Hot Springs

June 7th, 2009 by Ray Rosset


A great reason to stay at Lookout Point is because of our convenient location.  We are only about seven miles from the event filled downtown area.  Guests lodging with us take advantage of all the great activities that Hot Springs has to offer. 

Other than the usual activities offered in Hot Springs, like touring bath houses, looking at a bird’s eye view of Hot Springs from the Mountain tower, and shopping in the downtown shops, there is a calendar of scheduled events that take place each month.

Here’s a quick look at some of the upcoming events in Hot Springs!

The Hot Springs Music Festival is currently taking place.  Enjoy a walk  downtown and catch a musical performance or two. 

Magic Springs is a great place to spend the day on roller coasters and at the water park.  Ride rides all day and then catch a concert at night.  Little Big Town performed at Magic Springs last night.  If you did not get the chance to see that concert, then be sure to go see Colbie Caillat.  Caillat with be performing on June 13th at 8:00. 

From now until August 20th, Cedar Glades Park has a 35-foot climbing wall.  This wall is for all ages and skill levels.  It’s a great place for children to have an adventure, and a great place for adults to be a kid again!

The Miss Arkansas America pageant is on June 13th.  Come watch beautiful ladies from all over the state compete for the Miss Arkansas title and go on to compete for the national title of Miss America.
