Happy Father's Day!
Wow...can you believe this year is half way over?
Time to start thinking about one of the biggest weekends in Elephant Butte: the 4th of July!! Saturday, July 2nd, we'll celebrate on the East Lawn from 6pm - 9pm...great food,tons of fun, games and prizes and foot stompin' live music. Watching the fireworks over the lake from our lawn is spectacular! No reservations are required...the restaurant and lounge will also be serving dinner. You'll probably want to bring a comfortable chair. More information on details as we get closer to the 4th!
Our sister property across the street, Elephant Butte Lake RV Resort, is getting closer to opening...keep watching for new info...it's going to be an amazing Resort when it is all finished!
We hope this summer has been a safe one for you and your family...if you ever have a suggestion for something you'd like to see at the Inn, just drop me a note: email@example.com or reply to this blog! We always like to get input on how to improve our services for our guests and customers.
