Celebrating New Life on Lake Hamilton

June 1st, 2012 by Kristie Rosset

It’s been a busy spring here at Lookout Point, with our beautiful gardens sporting many signs of new life.

Just this week: baby robins, finches, and cardinals left the nests. A newly hatched duckling was feeding with mama under the bird feeder. And five young goslings visited the gardens during a wedding!

Of course, the flora provides eye candy in the gardens. Now blooming: balloon plant, hydrangeas, althea, roses, gardenias, lilies, and magnolias. It’s a sight for the soul! We’d love to welcome you to Lookout Point for your much needed R&R!

Sure Sign of Spring’s Arrival at Lookout Point Inn

March 27th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

For five years Ricky and Lucy have arrived by mid-March.  Last week we wondered, where are they?   These lovely mallards returned to their summer “home” in time to delight guests at the Innkeeper’s Reception on Friday.

Each year, these two become a bit more brave, although as you can tell from the photo Lucy still does not like to have photos taken.   This morning, they dined below the bird feed while guests enjoyed their breakfast.  Then off to the waterfalls & our pond for a swim and nap.

Ricky & Lucy aren’t talking about their trip, nor why they arrived more than a week late.  We’re left guessing.  And grateful for their appearance and the wonderful rhythm of life.
