Hot Springs B&B “Cleans The World”

January 18th, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

At Lookout Point, we are committed to taking care of the environment in every way possible. We recycle,  we built the inn with green products, our cleaning products are eco-friendly, we use CFB’s, and the list goes on.

Last year, we partnered with Clean The World, shipping the unused portions of guest soaps to Clean The World. Instead of throwing unused soaps away, we now pay to ship them to Clean The World. These soaps are collected, sterilized, recycled and distributed to 48 countries to stop the spread of preventable diseases.

Every day 9,000 children around the world die from acute respiratory illnesses and diarrheal diseases that could be prevented

Recycled Soaps Clean the World

with simple handwashing. In 2011,  97 bars of soap were made from the little bars of unused soap from Lookout Point guests!

It’s an honor to do small tasks that can make a big difference in people’s lives.

8 Broads in the Kitchen Featured in Boston Examiner

December 18th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

As a member of the 8 Broads in the Kitchen, I was delighted to see our food blog covered in the Boston Examiner this past week. You’ll find some great holiday recipes on the site, including Evil Toffee (so named because it cannot be resisted, it’s so darn good).

The 8 Broads formed to create a fun food website, where we could offer tips and recipes to share with other foodies. In the process, we’ve become fast friends. In addition to the blog, we write for magazines, teach food demos, lead webinars, and have done radio shows.

I just posted to the blog my mother-in-law’s fabulous Christmas butterscotch marshmallow bars.

Butterscotch Bars

Only made at Christmas, these treats remind us of long-ago times in Winnipeg, filled with laughter and bitter cold weather.

Top 5 Ways to Stay Cool in Hot Springs

July 21st, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

With the “heat bubble” hovering over most of the U.S., Hot Springs is a pretty good place to have fun and stay cool. Here’s our top five suggestions:

1. Rent a boat, and head to Blakely Dam. The water temp drops to about 48 degrees, creating at least a 10 degree drop in air temperature. Really refreshing on hot summer days. Plus the water is so clear you can see the fish swimming. Try Marineland for boat rentals.

2. The Gangster Museum of America. Spend time indoors at this fun and quirky museum, exploring the unique, checkered history of Hot Springs.

3. Star gaze from the lakeside hammocks of Lookout Point. With a cool beverage and a breeze off the lake, you’ll definitely feel cooler.

4. Crystal Falls Water Park.

Water fun at Crystal Falls

With a lazy river, wave pool, and lots more water fun, Crystal Falls is a cool way to spend the day. Get discounted admission tickets from the inn, and there is no waiting in line for tickets, too.

5. Explore Mid-America Science Museum. More than 100 hands-on exhibits delight by kids and adults of all ages.

Keep Cool!
