Special Announcement

To all the valued guests and patrons of Em-Te Town

Due to circumstances beyond our control, It is with great regret that we must announce the closure EMTE-TOWN effective immediately. Unexpected developments of a personal nature have recently occurred which prevent the owners from dedicating the time necessary to effectively manage and operate the facility for the upcoming season.

Em-Te Town has been put up for sale and now we must work to accelerate the process so that the new owners will have the opportunity to re-establish its operations as soon as possible, either in its present form or as a private retreat.

Any active confirmed event booking for the coming season has been, or will be, refunded in full. We truly apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, however our aim is to allow ample time for alternate arrangements to be made.

We are truly thankful to all of our patrons who have given us such great support over the past nine years. We worked hard to resurrect a decaying facility from 2008 onwards. We are proud of the many improvements that have been made since then which have helped make Em-te Town a truly unique and profitable western themed resort. All the varying integrated aspects of the Em-Te Town facilities complement each other to make it a very special place which has provided so much enjoyment to so many. We are grateful for the experience. Sadly our tenure has come to an unexpected end and so we must make room for the next custodian to take over and hopefully bring this very special place to a new level while retaining its old west character.

Thank you to the community of Alder Flats who are very much a part of this town going back to its original inception. Many have contributed through employment and other means and have put their heart into it. We very much appreciate it.

Itís been a great privilege in hosting all of your weddings, reunions, camping, daily visits, and special events. Thank you all for your past support.

Em-Te town has been under new Management since mid 2008. Since then we have completed numerous renovations and upgrades to the entire facility. These include a new modern kitchen and public washrooms. A renovated dining hall with entertainment system and a new expanded outside licensed covered patio deck. The cabins have new heaters and queen beds. Some of our campsites are now serviced with 30 amp power and water. Numerous town buildings and cabins have new roofs and some have been structurally repaired.

The Motel rooms have been renovated to serve you better. We hope you will enjoy the added comfort. The Cabins have been spruced up, some with new roofs, decks, and awnings. Much of the furniture has been replaced. The main shower house has a new roof and platform. These are just some of the new changes with more to come. 

Our new Grande Banquet Hall was completed in the spring of 2011. Since then many Weddings, Reunions, and other events were held in our new Hall. By all accounts it has proved to be a great success and a good time was had by all. Come on down and have a look, or check it out on our Facilities page. Information on booking your event can be found on our Functions page.

Additional 30A power & water sites have gone in across from the shower house, which will also have new lights for your comfort and safety. The gazebo has been spruced up and moved next to the church. A new petting zoo is in the works near the corrals. The store has more camping essentials, gifts, and fun stuff for the kids. Many more town buildings and boardwalks have been fixed up as part of our ongoing maintenance program to preserve and upkeep the Town.

 As part of our efforts to promote the new equine part of our business the entire corral area has been completely renovated. The barns have been cleaned and repaired. Also new fences and corals have been built. We boast a brand new full size Rodeo arena complete with bleachers. We are planning many new rodeo events for this season and beyond. Check our Activities and Special Events pages for updates.

Our goal is to preserve the unique character of old town going into the future. We also wish to continue to improve the standard of the rest of the facility for the comfort and pleasure of our guests. We appreciate your input and thank you for your support.
