Favorite Hamburger Spots :: Father’s Day in Hot Springs, AR

May 25th, 2015 by Kristie Rosset

With Father’s Day coming June 21, there’s no better way to celebrate your ol’ Dad than treating him to a really good burger. In Hot Springs we have quite a few fabulous places to choose from. It all depends on how you like your burger.

Three of Ray’s favorite Hot Springs hamburger places are:

BubbaLu’s Bodacious Burgers & Classy Dogs in Historic Downtown Hot Springs offers old fashioned burgers made from Black Angus beef. The name itself makes me stop and smile and so do the cheeseburgers and onion rings. I added a diet Coke, but I understand the malts and milkshakes are delicious. So, if you’re downtown cruising with your Dad, treat him to one of Hot Springs’ finest – a bodacious burger from BubbaLu’s.
KJ’s out on Airport Road is my all –time favorite Hot Springs burger. The 1/2 –pound burger is a little ominous, but they are perfectly prepared and utterly delicious. Add fries or onion rings and I guarantee your dad will walk away having thoroughly enjoyed his Father’s Day treat. The desserts are also scrumptious, but there was no way I had room for dessert after a 1/2 –pound burger.
The Ohio Club also in Historic Downtown Hot Springs offers several varieties of tasty burgers. The mushroom, Swiss burger was mouth-watering and the fries and onion rings completed the meal. The Ohio Club is the oldest bar in Arkansas and it is quite authentic. The food is great and the atmosphere is plenty of fun, with live music daily. The drinks from the famous bar are refreshing and go great with the burgers.
There are plenty of additional places to enjoy burgers in Hot Springs, but these are three of our favorites. They are all quite different in atmosphere, and the food in all three places is exceptional.
While celebrating Father’s Day, Dads would also enjoy staying at Lookout Point Inn. We offer gourmet breakfasts, our own custom ground coffee and lots of treats available throughout the Inn. There are lots of places to sit and watch birds, to enjoy a ride in our canoe on Lake Hamilton or to take a boat ride on the lake with Capt. Ray. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help you plan a great Father’s Day celebration.

St. Patrick’s Day Celebration Update Hot Springs AR

March 10th, 2015 by Jenna Tackett

swon brothers hot springs arThe First Ever 12th Annual World’s Shortest St. Patrick’s Day Parade has a few more surprises up its sleeves. Not only have they gotten NASCAR driver Mark Martin to lead this year’s parade, but they are altering the route slightly to make him feel more at home. For the first time ever, Hot Springs St Patrick’s Day Parade will make it a point to turn left. This means the marking of the parade route that traditionally happens at 6:25pm will be more interesting than ever.

Plus, this year there is a free concert after the parade ends. At 7:30pm you can see the Swon Brothers, famously tied to Blake Shelton’s team when they were on The Voice, as they bring country music to the celebration. They are nominated for the Vocal Duo of the year by the Academy of Country Music, and they have been touring with Brad Paisley since January. They are sure to be a delight for all ages!

The parade has also adopted its own mascot, and he’ll be keeping the crowd in the right spirit throughout the race. Be sure to get to the parade spot early so you can see all the action. The Blarney Stone kissing contest starts at 4:30pm, special guests start performing at 5:30pm, and the Swon Brothers will kick off the parade (with Mark Martin at the lead) at 6:30.

There are only a few rooms left at Lookout Point for parade week, and we would love to share our favorite moments of the event with you. You can enjoy a gourmet breakfast in the morning and rejuvenate in a luxurious bed in the evening. Reserve your room online or call 501.525.6155 for more information.

February 1st, 2015 by Jenna Tackett

Spring Flowers Hot Springs ARSpring is a time of renewal–with blossoming flowers, green leaves, and an optimistic spirit. Hot Springs National Park is the perfect retreat to enjoy the beautiful season.

The first stop for you on your trip should be Garvan Gardens. The gardens have gorgeous botanical landscapes for you to explore and enjoy on a Spring afternoon. For those that prefer hiking, Hot Springs has many trails to offer. One of our guests’ favorites is at Lake Catherine State Park; it has four different trails for you to choose from, in varying lengths. The great feature of Lake Catherine, other than beautiful views of the lake, is the Falls Branch Waterfall that can be seen from some of the trails.

Next, you should plan for a day digging crystals at Ron Coleman’s Crystal Mine. Spend an afternoon digging at this mine to unearth the possibility of taking home a unique, and beautiful, souvenir. Plus, you can always add an element of adventure by taking advantage of the new zip-lining attraction at Ron Coleman’s as well!

For an evening treat, you should visit Maxwell Blade’s Magic Theater downtown. The show will dazzle people of all ages, and have you laughing as well! For a special treat, try eating Cuban/Ecuadorian food at Rolando’s or authentic Mexican food at Vina Morita before attending the show.

Spring Break trips fill up fast at Lookout Point, and not just because we have a canoe that’s always waiting for an adventure. You can enjoy a gourmet breakfast before your adventures each day and rest in a luxurious bed in the evening, all while looking at a breathtaking view of Lake Hamilton.

‘Voices of Angels’ Concert is a Heavenly Experience

November 30th, 2014 by Kristie Rosset

Last year Ray and I along with friends attended the “Voices of Angels” Concert in Anthony Chapel at Garvan Woodland Gardens. It was probably the highlight of the Christmas season in Hot Springs for me. The talented musicians were very gifted and delivered a performance in the lovely chapel that I will always remember. Some of the beautiful songs in the concert were traditional and some were new to me, but each one touched me to my core.

I highly recommend the “Voices of Angels” 9th Annual Christmas Concert this December performed by The Muses Creative Artistry Project at 6 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Muses Cultural Arts Center, 428 Orange St., and at 3 p.m. Dec. 14 at Garvan Gardens. This is a treat you’ll enjoy and remember throughout the season.

Last year as I sat and listened to the concert I truly felt as if I had been in the presence of angels. My mind was quiet, my body was still, my heart was light and my spirit soared. No other holiday event I attended captured the essence of Christmas quite like the “Voices of Angels.” I was truly blessed to be in the presence of angels for a short while.

This year the Muses will also incorporate ballet dancers from the Hot Springs Children’s Dance Theater who will perform excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker.” For more information or tickets call 501.609.9811.

I urge you to consider attending the concert. And a great coupling with the “Voices of Angels” Concert would be to plan to stay with us at Lookout Point Inn for the weekend. We offer a quiet meditative Inn to restore your spirit and help you return to the peaceful, joyous holiday season with renewed hope and full of love. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help you plan a great weekend that might even become a tradition. We plan to make the “Voices of Angels” a tradition in our family.

Magic Screams In Hot Springs AR

September 30th, 2014 by Kristie Rosset

Magic ScreamsWhere can you find zombies and ghouls kind enough to take pictures with? Magic Screams! Each year the theme park in Hot Springs AR transforms from Magic Springs into a haunted adventure for the month of October.

Filled with family-friendly fun, Magic Screams has a Trick-or-Treat trail, contests, and spooky shows for you to enjoy. The live shows play in the evening on Saturday and Sunday, and they include the “Reunion of Souls: Apocalypse” and “Captain Ghoul and the Gang.” There are also fright flicks on the movie trail; these vary each weekend, beginning with Despicable Me 2 and ending with Monster House.

No Halloween event would be complete with a haunted house, and Magic Screams has several. There are four to choose from, including the bridge, lakeside theater, and a family-friendly pirate themed house across from Plummet Summit. Check the schedule before you go in, because some of these haunted houses have a “chicken hour” on purpose!

The Magic Screams event takes place every weekend from Oct. 11 to Nov. 2 (including Halloween Night). On Saturdays, the park is open from 4pm to 11pm; on Sundays, it is open from 4pm-9pm. You can find out more about admission prices on the website.

While you are in town, dressed up in ghoulish fun, we hope you’ll consider adding a stay at Lookout Point. The tranquility will be a lovely break from the fright-tastic fun you’ll be having all weekend. Plus, each room includes a gourmet breakfast in the morning, a gorgeous view of Lake Hamilton, and the Innkeeper’s Reception in the afternoon for a great snack. You can reserve your stay online or call 501.525.6155 for more information.

Pet Friendly Hotel Honors Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

September 9th, 2014 by Kristie Rosset

Hot Springs AR Pet Friendly B&BAt our award winning Hot Springs bed and breakfast, some of our favorite guests have paws. When dogs arrive they are greeted in the room with treats and their own welcome letter. Each pet friendly room has direct access to the gorgeous garden (and Lake Hamilton, for those water-loving pups), as well as a porch.

Dogs at the Inn have a great time with their owners—from walks in the garden to trips in the canoe, to breakfast by the waterfall. The Innkeepers help them plan a dog-friendly getaway to Hot Springs National Park, which can include a trip to Garvan Woodland Gardens or Lake Catherine.

In honor of Adopt a Shelter Dog month in October, when you visit our Hot Springs Bed and Breakfast with your furry friend, the dog lodging fees will be donated to the Garland County Humane Society. The GCHS is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing unwanted, abandoned, and neglected/abused pets. Lookout Point is proud to offer assistance to this organization, and we hope that you will join us in supporting them.

Reserve your dog-friendly Arkansas getaway at Lookout Point online or call 501.525.6155 for more information. We would love to welcome you and your four-legged friend to this beautiful city as autumn sets in!

Historic Downtown Farmers Market

June 5th, 2014 by Kristie Rosset

Hot Springs AR Farmers MarketA wonderful growing trend throughout Arkansas and the country is the revival of farmers markets. We are lucky in Hot Springs to have a wonderful Farmers Market every Saturday morning in our Historic Downtown area. It is a delightful place to spend some time buying local produce and much more, enjoying local musicians, sipping some coffee and visiting with the local farmers and neighbors. It has become a mainstay for many Hot Springs residents and a special attraction for visitors to our city.

Some of the offerings at the Market include quality home-grown produce, fresh herbs, plants, flowers, eggs, meat products, fresh-baked breads and desserts, local honey, jams and jellies. Art, furniture, jewelry, clothing, knife sharpening, soaps and creams, and more are also available on any given Saturday. During the summer the Market is also open on Tuesday evenings.

The Farmers Market has roots back to the mid-1970s, was dormant for a while and reopened in the mid ‘90s. In 2006, Hot Springs received a grant along with donations and built its permanent open-air pavilion at Broadway and Orange streets. It has since become a leading Farmers Market, receiving state and national recognition. It incorporates landscaping by the local master gardeners and a state of the art Cairn Fountain designed by Bennett Brothers Stone. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Summer hours for the Farmers Market are 7 a.m.-noon and Tuesday nights 5-7 p.m. For more information online visit www.hotspringsfarmersmarket.com.

So if you’re planning a vacation to Hot Springs we hope you’ll consider adding a trip to the Farmers Market to your local fun places to visit list. We’d love to have you stay with us at Lookout Point Inn when you come to town. We offer a beautiful Inn situated on Lake Hamilton with all our rooms offering a view of the lake. Our rooms are individually decorated and named after Arkansas towns. The beds and linens are luxurious and our breakfast is superb. Reservations can be made online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help you plan a wonderful Hot Springs vacation.
