I just returned from a weekend at the Elephant Butte Inn and was so wonderfully surprised by this quaint, friendly family-owned spot. The view of the lake is awesome, so serene and quiet. The hike to the lake is easy and gives you a great feel for the desert. I saw rabbits, quail and lots of other birds on the way.
The rooms are large, clean, comfortable. I especially appreciated having a mini fridge and microwave in my room. I ate delicious meals in the restaurant there - the steak and salad combo were outstanding!! And the staff - you really couldn't ask for more! They were so helpful, accomodating, friendly and made me feel right at home. I enjoyed a massage at their new "Ivory Spa" and it was heaven! I haven't had a ton of massages before, but this was one of the best I've had.
Elephant Butte may be off the beaten path, but it's worth a trip!
