Holiday Tip from Lookout Point

December 19th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

PoinsettiasHere’s an easy trick for keeping poinsettias looking fresh and beautiful for the entire month, and beyond.  Ice.  That’s it.  Simply place 1/2 cup of ice on each poinsettia in place of water.  Do not even think about watering these beautiful plants!

I learned this trick years ago when serving the church, and we had hundreds of poinsettias.  Most of the plants die, or begin looking wilted, from too much water.  They don’t like wet feet.  The ice slowly melts, providing a more constant source of nourishment.

Almost daily guests ask how we keep the poinsettias looking so lovely, and we’ve had the flowers for 3 weeks already.  Sometimes I think if I know something, then the entire world probably knows it.  Yet I’m learning this tip may not be so widely known.

I would love to hear your helpful hints for the holidays!  What makes your life a wee bit easier this month?

Hot Springs’ Famed Garvan Gardens Events in December

December 6th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Garvan Gardens Christmas lightsOne of the wonderful aspects of living in, or visiting, Hot Springs Arkansas is strolling through the Garvan Gardens in December.  This wonderland of lights never fails to inspire and strike awe for all ages of folks.

Our family enjoyed a long walk through the gardens, amazed by the variety of light displays.  On the chilly night, the complimentary cup of hot cocoa near the miniature railroad provided a warm treat.

In addition to the lights, Garvan Gardens hosts terrific concerts in the Anthony Chapel.  December 7: Holiday concert with the chorus of Ouachita Baptist University; December 8: Holiday concert featuring the Henderson University Chamber Chorale;  December 13:  Voices of Angels with the talented Deleen Davidson, 5:00pm; December 21:  Hot Springs Flute Ensemble; December 22:  Concert with vocalists Stephen and Denise Edds.

Fall Colors Peaking in Hot Springs

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.

Relax with dinner at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn

Fall is just weeks away, and it’s one of my very favorite seasons!  There’s a hint of coolness in the air at night, the humidity is down, and relaxing outside in the gardens of Lookout Point delights the senses. 

If you can getaway throughout September, we’re offering to provide your dinner for one night:  complimentary!  Many guests tell us that they don’t want to leave the inn, even to go eat.  To accommodate this request, we started serving simple and healthy fare from 11am-9pm.  A bowl of soup, organic green salad, or sandwich (chicken salad on croissant or grilled ham & cheese or grilled turkey & cheese) provide a lovely “dining in” experience.  You can sit by the waterfalls, and relax.

Stay two weeknights (Sun -Thur) in September, and you’ll receive a complimentary dinner for two (choice of two selections each).  The September Special is not available with any other promotions, and must be mentioned at the time of reservation.

We welcome the most interesting and kind folks in the world at Lookout Point!  Kathy (left) and Jennifer–a dynamic mother and daughter–completed ATA Tae Kwon Do competition in Hot Springs this week .  Best of all, Kathy won the World Championship in her age bracket (she’s adamant about including the “age bracket”.)    With a great sense of humor, Kathy shrugged off this huge achievement with “all the other competitors in my age bracket were in wheelchairs or on walkers!”    Congratulations!  Best of luck in all your future competitions.

Besides being great photographers, these guys are two of the kindest people in the world.  We just love having them around.  They captured incredible photos (soon to be placed on our website) of the new rooms, and also great photos of the gardens in springtime.    Abundant thanks to Matthew & Mark!

Guest Boat Tour of Lake Hamilton

Captain Ray & guests

Captain Ray & guests

What a glorious day for a boat ride on Lake Hamilton.  Sunny, gentle breezes, blue sky, and great people.  Steve & Shelley, enjoying their second stay at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn, decided to go for a ride with “Captain” Ray.    Taking guests on boat tours, sharing stories about the lake’s history, pointing out the amazing mansions and their stories, is one of Ray’s favorite innkeeping tasks. 

If only I could dock the boat, I’d share this hard duty with Ray.  :)  What a great place to live and work!
