New Hot Springs Restaurant, Luna Bella, a HIT!

August 29th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Our guests are raving about the new Luna Bella Restaurant, located only 1/2 mile from Lookout Point. The Italian American fusion cuisine puts a great twist on Italian fare.  Recently I enjoyed their special of the evening, a pan-seared tilapia.  It was cooked to perfection, and perfectly seasoned.

Luna Bella’s upscale decor allows for conversation in a setting reminiscent of Hollywood during the 1950′s. With enough well-placed lighting to actually read the menu, the atmosphere is great for a romantic occasion or a business dinner.

Hot Springs is graced with fine restaurants!  Here’s a few more of our favorites:  J&S Italian Villa, Central Park Fusion, Rolando’s, Via Roma, Jason’s Burgers & More, McClard’s Bar-b-que….and lots more.

We’re pleased to be your full concierge service when you stay at our B&B inn.

Hot Springs Music Festival Conductor Welcomed

June 17th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Last week Lookout Point Lakeside Inn experienced the joy of welcoming the talented guest conductor Pierre Simard, of Montreal Canada.  Joined by his enthusiastic wife, Nadya (a professional sopranist), the couple made fast friends with every person they met at the inn.  Hot Springs Music Festival Conductor, guest at Lookout Point Inn

Conducting the Festival Symphony Orchestra, Simard’s spirited gifts coaxed the very best of these talented musicians from around the world.  The opening overture, Wagner’s Tannhauser, left the crowd in holy awe, resulting in a standing ovation.  Well done, maestro!

He’s conducting a Valentine’s concert, with Nadya singing, on February 19 on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  Who wants to go?  We do!

Hot Springs Music Fesitival May 30-June 12

May 31st, 2010 by Ray Rosset

One-of-a-kind in concept and execution, the Hot Springs Music Festival brings together over 250 international musicians each June to our wonderful city of Hot Springs. Lookout Point Lakeside Inn delights in sponsoring the Music Festival, and whenever possible we try to catch a concert or rehearsal. Rehearsals are FREE!

The Festival, now in its fifteenth season, pairs world-class mentor musicians from major orchestras, chamber ensembles and conservatory faculties with especially talented pre-professional apprentices–all of whom receive full scholarship plus housing; the two groups play “side by side” in orchestral, chamber, solo recital, vocal, choral and chamber opera repertoire. For two weeks, these musicians form a unique community, presenting 20 concerts and over 250 open rehearsals for music lovers from across the globe.

We invite you to enjoy the amazing Hot Springs Music Festival! The extraordinary talent inhabiting Hot Springs during these two weeks takes my breath away. This is a time to feed the soul!
