I was with some friends at the Damsite Marina Bar & Resturant, (we went just for a day trip) had a nice meal there in the restuarant and then moved over to the bar for a drink and a game of pool. The bartenders drinks were so good when offered another, we had to decline due to the long drive home, he told us they now owned the cabins and the lodge located right behind the restaurant overlooking to water and the Marina (perfect view of the Elephant Butte Rock in the middle of the water) and the prices for the cabins were really reasonable! They own the lodge too (newly remodeled and located same spot overlooking the water) and for a 2 bed queen it was $95.00. We will definitely return there! The Damsite restaurant also served breakfast and there is a bait store down by the docks and awnings and Brad and Neal can help you out with what is biting that day and some bait. As long as you arrive while the bar is still open, there is no issues with checking in late. They didn't have anyone checking in our room the next day and even let us sleep in. Very friendly accomodation, clean, no bugs and perfect view, and best part, after having drinks you don't have to drive anywhere and you can wake up to a nice lake view.
