Tesla Car Charger in Hot Springs!

August 30th, 2015 by Kristie Rosset

Thanks to Tesla Motors Destination Charging program and 170+ forward-thinking, business-savvy, and environmentally-conscious Select Registry member properties, road trips just got easier for Tesla Model S owners.  Our inn, Lookout Point Lakeside Inn, is one of those 170+ environmentally conscious properties!  We are pleased to have the new Tesla and Universal charging stations, available free of charge to our guests.

Electric Car Chargers


Select Registry is the first independent hospitality organization to enroll this quantity of properties all at once, and the only group that consists of unique and quality-assured lodging. Select Registry joins a rapidly-growing network in Tesla’s program, in which Tesla partners with hotels, resorts, and restaurants around the world, offering High Power Connectors at locations where drivers have time to charge their vehicles for a couple of hours, or overnight.  We are definitely proud to be a member of Select Registry, and to offer these new charging stations!

Tesla’s growing Supercharger network (now 425 stations along frequently-traveled highways) has inspired Model S owners to hit the road in increasing numbers. Owners can drive all day, charging for 30-40 minutes at Superchargers, and then stop at night to stay and charge at a Select Registry property with a Tesla High Power Wall Connector (this charger adds 58 miles of range per hour, topping off Model S’s full 265 miles of range in just a few hours.)

We look forward to welcoming electric car drivers, and making their trip a little more beautiful with a stay at our Hot Springs lakeside inn!

Gallery Walk is a Hot Springs Treasure!

August 6th, 2015 by Kristie Rosset

One of the most delightful evening strolls in Historic Downtown Hot Springs on the first Friday of every month is Gallery Walk. It’s an enjoyable event for those of us who live in Hot Springs and a very special outing for out-of-town visitors who just happen to be in Hot Springs on that Friday evening.
We have a significant number of art galleries in Downtown and they are grouped relatively close together. Gallery Walk takes place from 5-9 p.m. the first Friday of each month and includes wine, tea and lemonade along with appetizers for patrons of the arts who come to look and shop at the wonderful galleries. Each gallery is unique and offers such a great assortment of art.

A couple of my favorites that are next door to each other are Alison Parsons Gallery and Gallery Central, but I thoroughly enjoy browsing in them all. It’s always amazing to me how many new pieces the galleries exhibit from month to month. From Gallery Central, I’ve given various Houston Llew’s Spiritiles (glass infused on copper) as wedding gifts and baby gifts.
An added treat for us for the evening includes eating at Rolando’s, downtown. The food is always fresh and

Rolando’s for great food

delicious. I’ve never gotten a meal I didn’t thoroughly enjoy. Also, on Friday and Saturday nights Rolando’s has live music on their very unique and interesting outside patio.
So, my suggestion is to eat an early or late supper at Rolando’s and then mosey on over to the galleries to take your time and enjoy all the art Hot Springs has to offer.
An additional suggestion is to make it a getaway weekend and stay with us at our Arkansas bed and breakfast. We have our own art gallery at the Inn with our in-house artist, Robin Young, who has her incredible work on exhibit and for sale. In addition, every guest room has original fine art! You’ll also love our gourmet breakfasts and our luxurious rooms. Each room has its own individual personality with a peaceful and beautiful view of the lake. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help you plan a weekend to remember.

3 Reasons to Stay at a Bed & Breakfast :: Hot Springs Luxury Inn

May 19th, 2015 by Kristie Rosset

Remarkable summer vacations will commence within the next month for travelers that involve adventures, education, pure fun and great food. As travelers make plans for all the wonderful daytime activities, one way to make a vacation a trip to remember life-long, is to add a luxurious place to return to in the evening. Lookout Point Inn is one of those fabulous places to make memories.
Three terrific reasons to stay at a bed & breakfast is to have a place to come back not only to

  • rest in luxury
  • relax in beautiful surroundings,
  • and to have a place that encourages great conversation.

    Luxury Inn in Hot Springs, AR

    Daily Innkeepers Reception

In the afternoon we serve refreshments of wine, tea and appetizers for our guests at 4 p.m. not only to give them time to relax and refresh but to encourage conversation and allow time for guests to meet one another if they choose.
At the Inn we have several gathering places for all our guests. Our very bright and cheery sun room has comfortable seating, tables for playing cards or board games and a great place to converse with your traveling partner or group and with others staying in the Inn.
Next to the sun room is the living room, a quieter, more intimate setting with leather couches and chairs, bookcases with exceptional books and a fireplace. This room is a perfect setting for quiet conversation and reading. Books written by authors who have stayed at the Inn reside in one of our bookcases. So, bring the book you’re reading, pick up one of the newspapers or choose one of our books to read while relaxing in the living room.

Owners Ray & Kristie enjoying the sun room

While both the sun room and living room are great places to gather, I also love to sit outdoors outside the sun room and spend time talking with other guests about their day’s adventures. Near the lake we have a labyrinth, benches, a swing, a hammock and the dock, all of which attract lots of guests and great conversation.
It’s a little different to plan a place to stay that encourages great conversation. However, some of the best ideas and plans our family has ever made have come about on our vacations. So, why not add the component of places for great conversation to your summer vacation plans?
Hot Springs has so many great adventures, educational opportunities, fun places to visit and fabulous places to eat; add a great place to stay at the Inn and your vacation will be complete. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help make reservations for you.

Innkeepers in Leadership

April 9th, 2015 by Jenna Tackett

One of the truly unique things about staying at Lookout Point is the Innkeepers and staff dedicated to making your stay a memorable (and peaceful) one.

Lookout Point Lakeside InnThe two owners, Ray & Kristie Rosset, find it incredibly important to be involved in the hospitality industry. Ray has served as the President of the Bed & Breakfast Association of Arkansas for over a year; just as that role shifted, he became the President of the Garland County Chapter of the Arkansas Hospitality Association. He also serves on the board for the Arkansas Lodging Association.

Kristie, in addition to being a member of the 8 Broads in the Kitchen, is a member of the Leadership Board for the Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals.

The Rosset’s involvement in the hospitality industry increases their knowledge and passion for hospitality, while also keeping current in the field. Plus, they meet some great people along the way, and they come back to the Inn to share their passion with staff and guests.

If you’d like to experience the rejuvenation of our Hot Springs Bed & Breakfast, and meet Ray & Kristie in person, you can reserve your stay online or call 501.525.6155 for more information.

Planning for Arkansas Summer Vacations

April 5th, 2015 by Kristie Rosset

Crystal Bridges Museum ARArkansas has lots of opportunities for exciting, beautiful and educational experiences throughout the state. Some of my favorites are Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, William J. Clinton Library and Museum in Little Rock and Garvan Woodland Gardens in Hot Springs. Even though all three places are in different locations, they would be excellent choices for summer fun.

Crystal Bridges was founded in 2005 by the Walton Family Foundation for all to enjoy. The name comes from a nearby natural spring and the bridge construction is incorporated in the building. The amenities include:

  • Permanent collection of art spanning five centuries of American masterworks
  • Temporary exhibits featuring different artists
  • Restaurant on a glass-enclosed bridge overlooking the ponds
  • Museum store
  • Library featuring more than 50,000 volumes of art reference material
  • Sculpture and walking trails

Clinton Library ARWilliam J. Clinton Library and Museum is part of a unique heritage for preserving the documents and artifacts of our American presidents and offers historical insights from the time period in which they lived. The Clinton Library and Museum includes:

  • Replicas of the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room
  • Documents, photographs and videos
  • Interactive stations
  • Timeline and alcoves that highlight domestic and foreign policy and life in the U.S
  • Museum store and beautiful restaurant in the museum
  • Special exhibits

Garvan Woodland Gardens were donated by local industrialist and philanthropist Verna Garvan as an incredible gift to all people. They are botanical gardens situated in the Ouachita Mountains with outstanding seasonal displays of nature. The Gardens include:

  • A canopy of pines reaching skyward protecting delicate flora and fauna
  • Gentle lapping waves of Lake Hamilton with 4.5 miles of wooded shoreline
  • Anthony Chapel Complex
  • Restaurant and gift shop
  • Children’s area
  • Special exhibits and workshops throughout the year

These three magnificent places in Arkansas are some of my favorite examples of the beauty and wonder we offer visitors and guests in our great state. Hot Springs is a central location to stay while visiting all three places. We’d love to have you stay with us at our Arkansas Bed and Breakfast and make us your home base during your visit to Arkansas. Make reservations online or give us a call at 501.525.6155 and we’ll help you plan a memorable vacation.

Pi Day of the Century

March 14th, 2015 by Ray Rosset

Pie DreamsIt’s the Pi Day of the century today–3.14.15. Although our Hot Springs Bed & Breakfast loves celebrating Pi Day with pie more than the average person, we came across a blog that we’d like to share with you instead. This blog post, which you can read here, was written by Bill Penzey at Penzey Spices. We use those spices nearly every day at the Inn, and we absolutely love them.

Here’s one of our favorite quotes from the post:

In Pi, the number is all the value and beauty and wonder that is at the heart of the reality science holds. In the gift of a good slice of pie, the desert is all the kindness and compassion that our shared humanity encompasses. Pi Day really is ready to become so much more.

Don’t forget to enjoy a piece of pie while you celebrate Pi Day 2015!
