We are a family with 4 boys living the American dream and very thankful for our good fortune to have this Resort in NM, The Land of Enchantment! We live in Northern VA and fell in love with the peaceful isolation of the NM desert in an area they call the bootheel of NM. The picture is from our own family reunion. The heated pool was a favorite hangout for everybody, especially the kids!
Glen purchased this estate in 2009
Why Glen chose Rodeo
John McAfee put this property up for auction in the crash of 2009 with the auction was featured in an article in the NY Times where we read about the property. We decided to attend the auction and were absolutely blown away by the peacefulness of the area and the quality of the layout and construction of this estate. Believing it would make a great getaway resort we placed the winning bid for this former private estate and turned it into The Painted Pony Resort.
What makes this estate unique
The Pained Pony Resort is a great choice for the budget conscious who want the Southwest Desert experience but not the commercialism and or prices of Tucson and Phoenix. Weddings can be done economically using locals for food and other services. For family reunions, it is a great place because everyone tends to stay on the resort and re-connect. We love PPR for its beautiful setting and the calm and peaceful spirit it promotes. This is a perfect place to get away from the rat race and get spiritually recharged. Small to medium sized groups, artists, astronomers and university staff on sabbatical have come to hold their meetings at PPR. They find that our facilities are economical and their members love the quite beauty. Several groups are returning each year at the requests of their members.
