Hello Friends & Happy November!

October was a fun-filled month; Balloon Fiesta was a great success & we enjoyed every second of the two hectic weeks. We’re already excited to see all our repeat ballooners as well as some new faces for next year! It’s never too early to book your room for the most popular Albuquerque travel event of the year so give us a call & or make a reservation now for your room or townhouse for next year’s Balloon Fiesta.

This year there were a couple of new Balloon Fiesta services we learned about, including: The A Club Limosuine service, which picked up right at our front door & dropped off right outside the Balloon Fiesta gates. The cost was slightly more than the cost of using the city’s Park & Ride service, but  all our guests who used this service said the convenience & friendly staff made it worth every penny! Also, we found out that ABQ Trolley provided tours that dropped guests of directly at the park as well (but only for the nighttime events); what fun! Furthmore, ABQ Trolley Co. also offered Albu-Creepy city tours for Halloween (spooky fun for the whole family!). For outdoors people interested in alternative transportation for Balloon Fiesta next year, Routes Bicycle Rentals offered a guided bike tour from Montano directly to the park. This option includes the cost of a bike rental & avoids all motorized vehicle traffic; using a bike & pedestrian only designated path directly to the Fiesta (it’s a gorgeous ride, although slightly chilly!).

In a tough economy, we’re incredibly grateful to all of the guests who chose to stay with us or are considering staying in the future. We simply adore our repeat guests as well as our first timers & we strive to provide a perfect, comfortable stay every single night. To show our appreciation for our guests, we’re extending our offer of 10% off for reservations of two nights or more & if you mention this blog post when booking your reservation, we’ll include a $20 voucher to Slate Street Cafe.

We look forward to welcoming you to Mauger Estate B&B soon!
