Spring is coming to Hot Springs Arkansas!

February 7th, 2011 by Kristie Rosset

We’ve certainly had some chilly temperatures the last few weeks in Hot Springs. It’s been nice to cuddle up beside the fireplace– just ask our recent guests! But now that Phil has decided that Spring is closer than we knew, it is time to start thinking about Springtime. The gardens at Lookout Point will be in bloom before you know it, with splashes of vivid colors all around. We can’t wait for all those early Spring bulbs! It’s just so exciting. Our friends over at Garvan Woodland Gardens have emerged  from a month long rest to prepare for “Daffodil Days” in which they will have over 230 different species of Daffodil.

Spring Daffodils

Just imagine! A 300+ acre botanical garden with over 200,000 of the  jonquil blooming bright and cheery in yellows and oranges. The daffodils will take center stage at Garvan Gardens from February 21st to March 20. Come stay with us at our Hot Springs bed & breakfast and we will make sure to give you a delightfuly splendid retreat!

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.

Daffodils Days at Garvan Woodland Gardens

February 4th, 2010 by Ray Rosset

Nothing heralds the beginning of springtime like the first blooms of spring!  Last week on a walk in the park, Ray & I saw a proud, yellow jonquil and I immediately felt more hopeful.

Hundreds of thousands of daffodils stand in full glory at the Garvan Gardens Daffodil Days.  From February 15 through March 7th, bask in the glorious display of color as more than 175,000 daffodils are showcased. Take a walk to the Three Sisters of Amity Daffodil Hill and see Mother Nature at her best with this magnificent showcase of yellow and white daffodils!

Of course, the Lookout Point gardens will be soon bursting forth with color also. We look forward to seeing you in the spring.

Hints of springtime at Lookout Point, Hot Springs

We are doing the happy dance as signs of approaching springtime are popping out in the gardens. The phlox are in full bloom, daffodils proudly produce yellow trumpets, yellow buds dot the forsythias, and even the weeds are a welcome sign of new life.

To top off this glorious day, the annual mallards (Ricky & Lucy) appeared during breakfast today. Guests were taking lots of photos, as the male and female ducks fed underneath the bird feeder. These ducks stay until late fall, and last year they nested and laid eggs. Maybe this year some will actually hatch!

We hope this day has been filled with love for all of you! Happy Valentine’s.

With the official start of spring only one day away, the gardens at Lookout Point Lakeside Inn are changing by the hour!
Lake Hamilton ( the lake surrounding Hot Springs Arkansas in the Ouachita Mountains) water levels have returned to normal just in time for fish spawning. Every room at the inn overlooks Lake Hamilton and these gardens.
