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.

More than I expected

  • 5 of 5

I had seen pictures and heard good things about this home but when we arrived and entered it was so much more than we expected. There was plenty of room to accommodate my whole family. We all had our own beds, even the kids. There was plenty of blanket and pillows, kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessary utensil for cooking. The home was so comfortable and clean. There view was beautiful and to make our stay so much more worth it was that it started snowing Saturday and we had the best time tubing and than coming back to a warm comfortable home. We had great conversation with Ron on Saturday. We were so satisfied with our stay and hope that we get an opportunity to book again in the summer for a different experience.

Owner's Response: Sunshine-what an amazing review! It sounds like your group had a great time at the property and that is exactly what we like to hear. The summer time is also beautiful here since the deck is over the river and the huge trees make it your private sanctuary. We invite you back anytime. Many thanks, Ron and Netta

We had a large group and the home accommodated us easily. The home and the surrounding views were beautiful. The deck was very peaceful and we spent a large amount of time there. Ron and Netta were very responsive to any needs that arose. I would love to stay there again!

Exceeded our expectations!

Verified Stay

This was our first experience renting through VRBO and this home exceeded our expectations! This house had everything from the spacious bedrooms, to the huge kitchen and dining area, and the super comfortable den. It was equipped with all the kitchen utensils and extra bedding and blankets to accommodate all our needs. On top of all that it was beautiful! The owners put a lot of work in making their home feel like our home away from home. We had 16 people in our group and we all had plenty of room to sleep, eat, and get ready in the morning without bumping into one another. The location was perfect and easy to get to. We bragged about this house to all our friends and family when we returned home and can't wait to book it again this year. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Sandra, You all were an amazing group to have at Racetrack Rendezvous. We have met many incredible people since using this house as a vacation rental. You will have to try it in the summer as it is a whole different experience during that time of year. Past guests have described sitting on the deck above the river as peaceful and relaxing and a great place to catch up on family and friend time. We invite you back anytime and appreciate you choosing Racetrack Rendezvous. Best regards, Ron and Netta

The pictures don't do this place justice !!! It is so amazing . The basket ball and volleyball courts are not even mentioned in the info on the website . But the youth group enjoyed both a lot . Our youth group wants to make this an annual trip !! All of our adults want to plan our family vacations here as well . It's a great place ! Very clean and we felt right at home ! We adults were talking and couldn't believe how we NEVER ran out of hot water! Even with 12 teenagers and 5 adults. All of the appliances are top of the line . The beds were very comfortable. The closets are so big , a young couple could make a pallet for a toddler or put a pack and play in the closet for an infant to sleep ,but would still have privacy for feeding time . The possibilities are endless. Sitting on the back deck , listening to the flowing river was sure nice . And a great scenery for morning coffee . I'm cold natured , but there were plenty of quilts and blankets there in the big closet . But if you felted the need for more heat there are 2 wood burning stoves there .but we didn't use them this visit . It was plenty warm . We we're here November 18-21 . we could not have found a better place to stay there in Ruidoso if we searched all year. If we can't stay here , we will change our dates of our vacation so we can be there at Netta's place . She was great !! A 5 star place for sure !!!!

Owner's Response: What an amazing review Gina! You all were a great group to host and watching the teens interact with the barnyard critters was awesome. I do need to update all the extras that we have added over time. As you mentioned, the volleyball and basketball courts really get used by our guests. We invite you back anytime and we appreciate you choosing Racetrack Rendezvous for your group get-away. Thank you, Netta and Ron

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.
