Overview

About the property

A/C 3500 Sq. Ft. Home Handicap Accessible With 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 2 Living Areas

Our home is your home. We offer you a sprawling 3500 sq. ft ranch style home with level entry and handicap accessibility located on 1.5 acres. There is plenty of level parking and easy year round access to the property even with snow.

The home has many attributes to offer including newly installed A/C, 3 bedrooms with 1 king, 5 queens, 1 full, 1 twin and plenty of room to accommodate two deluxe queen air mattress that are provided when needed. 3 very nice sized bathrooms tastefully decorated. Large living area with a wood burning stove, a bar that leads out to patio/deck area. Office area has another sitting area with 2 sleeper sofas, WiFi and internet available for your use. Very large kitchen with every gadget imaginable and all new stainless steel appliances that includes a huge refrigerator and ice maker. The kitchen has an RO system installed so ice and drinking water taste great. No need to haul drinking water. A huge plus for Ruidoso! An open floor plan between the kitchen and dining area provides plenty of sitting for all. The dining area also has a wood burning stove for your enjoyment and beautiful log stairway that leads to loft area.

The home also has radiant in floor heating throughout so there is a constant comfortable heat without the noise of a heater kicking on and off. Since the home is located right next to the river, it stays very cool in summer but A/C is available if needed. There is a large laundry room for your use if needed. The hot tub room is situated closest to the river and has built-in surround sitting benches and lots of windows that provide a light, airy atmosphere that makes a perfect place to curl up with a good book. The deck is built over the river and has lots of seating available to enjoy under the canopy created by the huge ash and walnut trees. It is so peaceful and secluded-it makes you feel as though you are in your very own paradise. Ducks frequently swim by as you enjoy the deck and its peacefulness. The patio is next to the deck and has a BBQ grill with propane included, patio tables and a fire pit where we enjoy sitting by the fire in the evenings while roasting hot dogs and marshmallows and breathing in the mountain air. The grand kids love this spot. On the front of the house there is a covered porch where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee and watch horses and chickens and 2 dwarf Nigerian goats (Tripod and Grover) start their day and do some bird watching with the numerous finches, hummingbirds and robins that frequent the area. We have a large yard with lawn and flower bed areas and has been described as an oasis by many. This home has been a work in progress since we bought it in 2004 and we have customized it from ideas from ranch homes from my younger years on ranches in northeast NM. Summer of 2015 we added a volleyball area and horseshoe pitching pit both with sand and a mini basketball cement court. All game accessories provided. We would love you to come and experience some ranch hospitality at Racetrack Rendezvous that is located at 112 Highlands Lane, Ruidoso Downs, NM. If coming from Roswell direction take Service Ln. on right that is just past the bronze statue horses of the museum, turn right on Joe Welch and go past blue Sports theater building and across the river. Turn left on Highlands Ln and proceed to 3rd house on left (112 Highlands Ln). If coming from Alamogordo or Ruidoso direction head east on Hwy 70 passed Walmart and right passed racetrack look for Sport Theater and Veterinary Hospital sign and Franklin Veterinary Clinic on the right--turn left onto Service Ln. and proceed to Joe Welch and turn left and go passed blue building (Sport Theater) and cross the river then turn left on Highlands Ln to 3rd house on left and you have arrived at your destination.

About NETTA COLEMAN

I grew up in the northeastern part of NM and had the opportunity to live/work on several different big ranches in the area where one learns that there is never a stranger at your doorstep. There is always plenty of coffee and grub for anyone that may show up. I am a lab tech at a local hospital and my husband is a commercial electrician that travels lots with his job. We have several long term rental homes and all of a sudden the Golden years started to creep up on us so we decided to use our home as a vacation rental which is way too large for the two of us, to help pay off things since those sneaky Golden Years are obviously not going to go away.

NETTA COLEMAN purchased this house in 2004

Why NETTA COLEMAN chose New Mexico

If you want unique and comfortable (no cookie cutter design) then this is the place for you. After much searching for a property when we moved to the area in 2002, we finally found this little piece of paradise. After coming from the flat country of NM, we wanted some flat so we wouldn't have to battle steep terrain constantly but yet also wanted trees and the mountain feel and look. We wanted something somewhat rural but yet close to town and that is exactly what we got. We never even knew this subdivision was here those 2 years since it is tucked down in a canyon next to the river. We love the climate here in Ruidoso and all the unique charm that it has to offer so we began to make it our new hometown and have not ever regretted the decision. We have put lots of little extras into the home and property and it will always be a work in progress probably because of the dang HGTV shows. So come enjoy all the little extras.

What makes this house unique

This house is so sprawling that it accommodates huge crowds easily. There is plenty of separate areas that groups or individuals can retreat to for a quieter atmosphere if they wish. It seems as though there is plenty of space for all without the cramped, crowded feeling. We liked the fact of 1.5 acres on the river in a quiet neighborhood and several groups have enjoyed fishing out of the river with some success. Tripod and Grover, the dwarf Nigerian goats love attention from anyone who will give it to them. Kids seem to really enjoy interacting with them.

Owner's Response: Beth, Children always seem to gravitate to our mini zoo. Believe me the zoo animals love all the attention they get from guests. We love our little piece of paradise on the river and enjoy the peace and quiet that it has to offer especially out on the deck amongst what I think looks like the amazon jungle during the summer. So glad to hear you all enjoyed Racetrack Rendezvous and hope you come again, Thanks for the great review, Ron and Netta

Outstanding in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year to stay at Racetrack Rendezvous. It is our family's favorite vacation spot because there is something for everyone and the location is excellent. The children love the animals and the expansive green lawn is ideal for soccer and wiffle ball games. The back deck on the river is great for relaxing and nightly s'mores. And the home is basically one level which is very convenient for those with limited mobility. This home is a winner!

The dwarf goats Tripod and Grover miss them when you all leave as does Lucy the dog. Thanks for the awesome review and hope to see you all next summer. Thanks, Ron and Netta

Enjoyabel Stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice house for a big group. Had problems with the AC but it was fixed by the 2nd day.

There is no hand soap or body wash so pack your own. The house also lacks dish and hand towels. It's nice they have a pack n play & highchair!

What makes this house awesome is the deck! It's shaded so it's cool & the view of the river is beautiful! We would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: JoAnna, I am terribly sorry about the AC but mechanical issues do happen and we did try to get it addressed as soon as possible. Also the house is located on the river and it does stay quite cool with the ceiling fans going plus it was 70 degree weather. We were away during your stay so while the cat is away-the mice will play as we always make sure there is plenty of hand soap in all the bathrooms and dish soap in the kitchen. I am not sure what the housekeepers did with the soap or the dish and hand towels since I always make sure there are more than plenty. I assure you that I will address this with housekeeping. We hate leaving when we have guests because we personally go through each house to tend to each detail but we had a trip with the grandkids planned so we relied on the housekeeping crew. This is our first review that has not received 5 stars and I do not take that lightly. Hope to have you as guests again. Thanks, Netta and Ron

excellent!

This was a comfortable and beautiful home- we enjoyed our stay immensely! The children enjoyed petting the goats and dog in the pen adjacent to the property! Beautiful setting on the river! Back porch was divine for relaxing!

Owner's Response: Aleta, The house has been so busy that we have not been able to partake in the serenity that it has to offer. After your stay, we were tending to the flowers and actually got to sit out on the deck for a bit. We had forgotten how peaceful and relaxing it is back there. You can actually feel the stress slip away. We appreciate you and would love to have you back anytime. Many thanks, Ron and Netta

2 museums and 2 casinos located within 5 minutes. Breakfast/lunch favorites Tina's cafe, Cornerstone Bakery, Village Buttery & Pena's. Dinner faves Cattle Baron, Farley's, The Ranchers, Grace O'Malleys Pub & K-Bob's. Smokey B's restaurant located at Apache Travel Center/Casino has great food. Recreation: Fun Trackers have miniature golf and other activities. Numerous golf courses nearby. Inn of the Mountain Gods is a must-see. Apache ski resort and many hiking trails in the area. Spencer theater is about 15 minutes away for live entertainment. Vast array of shopping available in Midtown Ruidoso. Ruidoso Downs Racetrack where racing season begins Memorial Day weekend and last through Labor Day Weekend. The All American (the richest Quarter Horse race) is ran on Labor Day. Explore all the natural beauty Lincoln National Forest has to offer. The Iris Farm in Hondo Valley is a few miles down the road. Many art galleries with local talent are found throughout the area. Biker rallies are held in May and September and for added historical adventure- take a drive out to White Oaks and experience the 'No Scum Allowed' bar. For your dancing pleasure, Ruidoso has the Win, Place and Show bar for country western dancing and The Quarters for the younger crowds music taste. Grace O'Malley's Irish Pub has a unique menu and is a fun place to try. One of my favorites is their Irish Nachos. Bet you haven't ever had anything like 'em. The Flying J Wranglers is a very nice dinner show for some good ole country music and entertainment. The meal is excellent and it is reasonably priced so the whole family or group can afford to enjoy our local talent. Area lakes include Grindstone lake and Bonita Lake both of which offer good fishing and just experiencing what nature has to offer. Lots of wildlife can be seen along the way. A drive up to Ski Apache during all seasons is absolutely breath taking. One cannot imagine the vast distances and the views that can be experienced atop Sierra Blanca at 12,000 ft. above sea level. The drive to Ski Apache is 21 miles and is about a 45-50 minute drive, depending on traffic and weather. The Inn of the Mountain Gods offers fishing, golf, gambling, entertainment and great food in a gorgeous setting. This is a must see location.
