Welcome, Otto!

Paws in Prison

Sweet Otto

The newest addition to our family is a gentle guy with the sweetest disposition. Otto appears to be a one year old black lab/boxer mix, and he is recent stellar graduate of the Paws in Prison program. After being rescued from a kill shelter by CARE (Central Arkansas Rescue Effort), and placed in the prison program.This amazing program is such a win-win. The selected prisoners are taught by a professional dog trainer, and the dog is placed with the prisoner 24/7 to be trained. Otto comes to us house trained (we didn’t have the time nor energy to train a pup), knows many of the AKC commands, doesn’t pull on a leash, and we just love him! Most days Otto spends his time at Lookout Point Inn, tucked away in a back office. But if you need a dog fix while you’re here, you are welcome to take Otto for a walk! He would love it, and probably will share a slobbery kiss.

Earlier this year, our dog Nikki adopt a dog(a yellow lab mix) was diagnosed with lymphoma. While she lived several more happy months, she passed away at the beginning of summer.

We are grateful to our extremely thoughtful and kind staff for placing a tribute to Nikki in the garden. She’s facing the waterfalls, appropriate since she loved to romp in the water. Thank you so much to our very special team at Lookout Point!

If you are seeking Hot Springs, AR dog friendly lodging, you’ll love it here. Four guest rooms are available to folks traveling with their four-legged friends. We would love to welcome you!

A Dog’s Perspective of Hot Springs Dog-Friendly B&B

April 27th, 2013 by Kristie Rosset

When we turn onto Central Avenue in Hot Springs, I can’t help but sit up in my seat to watch the buildings pass. We are here twice a year, so I know exactly where we are going. As the wind blows past the windows, I see Lake Hamilton in the distance. Just thinking about the all the grass and flowers waiting for me makes me SING. Really loudly.

The other dogs I see just don’t understand. They must not be going to Lookout Point.

 When we round the curve to park in front of the inn, I am anxious to get out the door. As soon as I am inside the room, I want to eat all the treats waiting for me, but my master insists I look at the note written for me first. “Dear Lany,” it says, “enjoy a pawfect stay.” I ignore all the stuff written in the middle because there is a hammock outside calling my name.

Whew, naptime!

It really is the perfect spot for a nap, even if I have to share it. Sometimes I like to go for a swim.

Alert on the labyrinth

Splashing around in the water makes my masters laugh. They don’t get upset if I get them wet because we each have our own beach towels, but I like to sit in the labyrinth and let the sun warm me up.

I play for as long as I can, running on the path in the garden and by the waterfall. I make sure to keep an eye on all the birds that like to eat from the feeders at the top of the hill. One of my favorite things about staying here is exploring the garden. There are always flowers to sniff and grass to sit on.

I know we just left Lookout Point, but I am ready to go back right now.

Dogs & Dog Lovers Welcome in Hot Springs

April 19th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

At Lookout Point Inn we love dogs and because of that we really love to welcome pooches  at the inn along with their owners.

Ray and I have had numerous dogs in our lives throughout the years, each with funny and touching stories. When we were planning the inn, we decided to make sure we could accommodate dogs – from tiny to large breed – when they traveled with their owners.

When we have our guests’ special four-legged

Water loving dog, Nikki

friends stay with us, they are welcomed with a gift including custom-made doggie treats. Of course, they also receive their own personal welcome letter.

Please let us know you’re bringing your furry friend when you make reservations and we’ll be sure you are reserved in one of our dog-friendly rooms (four of our rooms are dog-friendly with direct access to the gardens).  We can help plan a perfect dog-friendly itinerary during your stay in Hot Springs.

As far as we know, Lookout Point Inn is the only Hot Springs B&B/Inn to welcome dogs. We look forward to pampering your special family member on your next visit.
