What’s Blooming at Lookout Point?

May 10th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

In a stroll through the gardens on this fine day, the blooms are truly eye candy. Besides the magnolias, hydrangeas, gardenias, Brazilian verbena, lilies, and butterfly bush, our feathered friends provided amusement.

Cardinals, ducks “Ricky & Lucy”, finches, mourning doves, robins, and scores of other birds were feasting, playing, and bathing in the gardens. The nest of baby robins will soon be empty.

We invite you to come enjoy a splendid space for relaxation and beauty at our Hot Springs B&B!

Tulips Blooming at Garvan Gardens, Hot Springs

March 6th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

Yesterday Ray & I went to the Garvan Gardens,

Lookout Point Inn sends guests to Garvan Gardens

Awesome Beauty

expecting to see the last of the daffodils. Instead, we were treated to a feast for the eyes: seas of tulips in early bloom. The sight is breathtakingly beautiful.

The riotous colors tickle the senses, and invite us to stop, pause, and just take in the wonder.

As an added bonus, the handsome peacocks were strutting their colors at the entrance to the gardens. Doesn’t get much better than this on a lovely spring day!

If you can getaway on March 7 or 8 to see the tulips, Lookout Point has a special offer. We also have a very few rooms remaining available for Friday, March 9 (one night stay).

Happy Birthday to Lookout Point Lakeside Inn!

February 14th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

Happy 9th Birthday to Lookout Point! Today we celebrate nine years

Happy Birthday!

of opening our doors to the best guests in the entire world. On Valentine’s Day, 2003 we opened to a full house. While some guests were out to dinner, glass shower doors were being installed. With construction delays, the gardens and waterfalls were yet a vision in our minds at that time.

The first day of serving breakfast, Ray sliced his hand on a new knife –he was not used to handling sharp knives–and had to drive himself to the ER for stitches and then surgery.

We’ve learned so much in these 9 years, and the most important lesson is the comforting reassurance that we love, love, love being innkeepers and welcoming people to this oasis of peace & tranquility.

You’re invited to come stay at our Hot Springs B&B/Inn!

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.

November 11th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

We would like to thank the many military personnel who spent their Veterans’ Day with us today at Lookout Point!

We welcomed  veterans and those serving in active duty with a free Arkansas getaway in honor of their service.  Our special guests today included men and women from all branches of the military who have served in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hundreds of innkeepers participated in this B&Bs for Vets campaign, sponsored by the Better Way To Stay,  to recognize those who have made sacrifices for our freedom.

Thank you veterans!

As an on-going thanks to America’s service men and women, Lookout Point always offers a 10% discount Sunday-Thursday for active military.  We thank you for your service to our country!
