Innkeeping Staff



With a rich tradition in the hospitality industry, Annette has worked on dude ranches and in restaurants from Texas to Wyoming. She moved from Texas to join the team at Lookout Point in February, 2016 and fits right in. You’ll love her calm demeanor and genuine kindness!



Sheila relocated from Dallas to Hot Springs in the summer of 2016, and luckily she found her way to Lookout Point. Following years in the banking industry focusing on customer concerns, Sheila is a natural fit to provide great hospitality at the inn. She loves to cook, and has a definite artistic flair.



Alana is our newest team member joining us in the summer of 2017. She came to Lookout Point after working for five years for a luxury boutique hotel group in the Northeast.  Recently settled into Hot Springs, Alana loves travel, hiking, the outdoors and recently embarked on a quest to visit every national park in the country.
