The Benton Area Rodeo Association sponsors the rodeo to help boost local tourism and provide funding for local charities, so it’s a great way to have fun and do good at the same time.

After a day at the Rodeo, it’ll feel great to come “home” to the quiet country setting of the Inn, where you can kick off your cowboy boots and relax in style. Give us a call soon to book your stay!
