Morning

We are a near-retirement couple from Erie, PA and will be staying in Elephant Butte, NM for the month of September 2007.

We will be looking to retire in this fair city. Any information will certainly be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi BEB:
I typed the date wrong in the first thread. We are retiring in 2007 but we are staying in Elephant Butte September of this year 2006 at the Enchanted View RV Park.
Have been looking at the ads, and will probably see a realtor in September. Thanks for a name.
May I ask what area you bought in??
We will have to meet in Elephant Butte in 2007, for coffee, lol.
Take Care,
SAS

Hi again...We bought on the golf course,Nice older area but once again the new golf course is going in and we have a beautiful view of the fairway.We looked in many areas including beach front property but decided we wanted to be away from the sport side of things.EB is small but some holiday weekends it goes to over 100,000 people.Have you been before??If not you might want to check out Lakeside R.V. Park..The people are the BEST and My husband and I loved it there.Dave was the manager for 3 years and he is very familiar with the area.Hodges restaurant is the place to meet EVERYONE in EB.We love it there to..Best Huevous Ranchero in the state!!!Will see you there Sept 07.Check out the Turtleback Mountain Resort site and Lakeside R.V. park too.

If you want to get a lot of info about E.B. stop by the Church at the Butte an ask for pastor Robert Rachuig (last name pronounced) rockway, he knows almost everyone in the eb area an he knows what is going on in the city he is a member of the Rotary Club of EB. The church is right across the street from the postoffice. I moved here from Mich. ten years ago an it is a very nice place to live. Also BeB is right about the Lake Side rv park it's the best in town an i've seen them all. also check out the newspaper at www.heraldpub.com for local news an weather the paper is located in TorC but that is only 5mi away from us. I live in the second filing area zoned R-1a. Elephant Butte hasn't been a town that long about 6 or 7 yrs. I try to take the Pastor fishing about once a wk throughout the summer an fall, the fishing is good if thats what you like to do. We also do some off roading up in the mountains in the summer an fall.

We are also relocating to Elephant Butte from Colorado, hopefully by mid-next year. WE recently purchased some horse acreage about 10 minutes from town. We subscribed to the Herald recently and it helps with the transition. Gives you a feel for the community. A few blogs exist that can be informative as well, as is this forum. Good luck!
