More Fishing at Lookout Point in Hot Springs!

July 26th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

Coffee in hand, two fishing rods, bucket of fresh worms, and a small pond filled with fish—what more could a fisherman want early in the morning?  Fishing at Lookout Pointprize catchRaymond caught at least a dozen bream (or blue gill, as I’ve been informed).    He was heading home to provide a fish cookout for friends this evening.  Thank you for thinning out the lake fish from our pond!  12 down, over 100 to go. 

Our gardener, Pat, tells us that he’s actually seen a bass, at least 16 inches long, in the pond.  Who knew???

So, you’re welcome to bring your rod and reel, and fish the lazy way at Lookout Point.  Catch & release (into Lake Hamilton) OR take ‘em home.   When Ray & I created a luxury inn with lots of amenities, we did  not know just how many amenities Lookout Point Lakeside Inn would actually include!  Ha…

Fishing is Great at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn!

July 25th, 2009 by Ray Rosset

One of mother nature’s unexpected “gifts” is a water fountain “pond” filled with brim.   I’m not a fisherperson, but it’s those lake fish with a blue spot on their sides.  There’s probably 100 brim in the pond, plus the 30 goldfish.  We are continually inviting guests to fish the brim, and release them the lake—-or take them home in their own cooler.  I’m not cooking the fish! 

Today our wonderful guest Raymond enjoyed some fishing in our pond, and caught 3 brim in a short amount of time.  Yeah!  The one goldfish snagged was happily released to swim with his friends. 

If you want some easy fishing, come on to Lookout Point.  Pull up a chair, sit in the shade, and fish away.  Sip on a glass of wine or beer, and RELAX.  

I haven’t figured out how to have a fishing tournament in our pond.  Any ideas?

Nancy & David wed at Lookout Point

On June 1, 2009 Nancy and David exchanged vows in the gardens of Lookout Point Lakeside Inn.  It was an honor to officiate at their wedding, and share in this high holy moment!   Following is an excerpt from Nancy: 

Just wanted to tell you how very pleased and happy we were with our wedding at your beautiful inn last week!  We couldnt have asked for a more lovely setting to begin our life together. The grounds are so beautifully maintained and the romantic Hot Springs Suite was a dream come true. We will both remember the extremely touching ceremony for the rest of our lives.

I wanted Ray to see how well he did snapping photos. These are just a few of them and they will all be treasured forever.

Words can’t express how appreciative we are for the kindness and grace shown to us by you, Ray and members of your staff.

Thank you again,  Nancy

 

We wish all the best to David and Nancy!

Captain Ray & guests

Captain Ray & guests

What a glorious day for a boat ride on Lake Hamilton.  Sunny, gentle breezes, blue sky, and great people.  Steve & Shelley, enjoying their second stay at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn, decided to go for a ride with “Captain” Ray.    Taking guests on boat tours, sharing stories about the lake’s history, pointing out the amazing mansions and their stories, is one of Ray’s favorite innkeeping tasks. 

If only I could dock the boat, I’d share this hard duty with Ray.  :)  What a great place to live and work!
