December 3rd, 2009 by Ray Rosset

The Babes of Wine and RosesWafting through the inn today were the peals of laughter, carols sung in three part harmony, and the delicious scent of maple praline bread pudding baking.

These wonderful women, The Babes of Wine & Roses, celebrated time together with a luncheon at Lookout Point.  The organizer, Kit, commented in an e-mail to Lookout Point: 

Dear Kristie & Ray, On behalf of The Babes of Wine and Roses, many thanks for a terrific luncheon today.  We all agreed that you have a charming Inn and it was so much fun to take your tour.  Our luncheon was a great success due to your gracious hospitality.  Thank you for making this one terrific Christmas party for our group. We will definitely be letting our neighbors know what a gem you have there and also other Red Hat groups in The Village.  Thanks again.

Fall colors, according to the Arkansas.com website, for the Hot Springs area are at peak, or just peaked.  We’re seeing orange, yellow, brown, and some red leaves.  Many trees are stunning gorgeous, and some have lost most all of their foliage.  Bottom line, it’s not too late to experience fall colors here in Hot Springs.  The inn has a limited number of rooms still available for this weekend, including a couple of rooms available for the Friday night only.

The weather should be gorgeous–a perfect time to visit Hot Springs and do some hiking.  Or napping.  Or exploring art galleries.  Or….the possibilities are endless.

Beautiful Lakeside Wedding at Lookout Point

October 12th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

It it such a great feeling to be a part of a couple’s special day, and this day was very special for Stephanie and Rodney Gibbs.  According to the family of this recently married couple, their marriage has been a long time coming.  The couple has been dating since they were fifteen years old, which is a trend in the family, because Stephanie’s brother and his wife also started dating when they were fifteen.  An intimate ceremony took place on the peaceful labyrinth and the reception followed in the dining room.  A beautiful bride and her handsome groom both gleamed with joy as members of the family came forward and toasted the newlyweds.  It was a lovely wedding for this sweet couple and their loving family!

We wish you two the best of luck and a happy marriage filled with lots of love and gorgeous children.  Also, best of luck with the twin girls on the way!

Motorcycle Rally, Hot Springs
Motorcycle Rally, Hot Springs

Riders in Hot SpringsEach year, Hot Springs welcomes motorcyclists from around the region, celebrating the love of the road and the wind in the hair.  The Hot Springs area provides gorgeous scenic drives, with twists, turns, hills, and beauty. 

The 2009 rally starts Thursday, September 10, and concert highlights include Foghat and Blue Oyster Cult. 
Lookout Point Lakeside Inn loves to welcome motorcycle guests for the rally.  This year, covered parking is available for all bikes under the carport. 
In 2008, Hurricane Ike interrupted the rally—so this year’s rally offers T-shirts declaring “I survived Hurricane Ike”.  At the inn, power was out during the night, yet breakfast was ready and served to our surprised guests without a hitch.  (Of course, behind the scenes we were scrambling to improvise without electricity!)
We’d love to welcome the Motorcycle Rally participants to Lookout Point!  You can share in the fun and many activities of the rally in downtown Hot Springs, yet come away to the peace, luxury, and quiet offered at Lookout Point.  Plus your aching muscles might celebrate a soak in the jetted tubs. 
Sign up for the Hot Springs Rally, and come stay at Lookout Point for a fun weekend of riding.  Call 866-525-6155 to make a reservation, or book online  .
