About NETTA COLEMAN
Buckner Bunkhouse was purchased by my husband Ron and I along with my brother Bill and his wife Joel as a joint venture and to have a place large enough for family gatherings since we are gathering quite a few grandkids. My brother and I were raised in Santa Rosa, NM and have always had a great time together. It has been quite an experience doing the makeover of this house with them. We have made many great memories together on this project and hopefully we can make many more with our families. Ron and I live in Ruidoso and own/operate 3 other vacation properties. We love meeting our guests and making their trip to Ruidoso as enjoyable as we possibly can. We moved to Ruidoso about 15 years ago and we wouldn't trade it for the world.
NETTA COLEMAN purchased this House in 2015
Why NETTA COLEMAN chose Ruidoso
Since we have 3 other vacation rental properties and we feel that this is our niche in life as we like to accommodate our guests to the best of our ability to make their stay enjoyable and relaxing, we decided this house would be a great addition to the family. I enjoy adding all the extra touches to a house to make it a home. This house had been neglected for some time but we saw the potential that it had to offer and after many hard months of work on it-it has become the house that we knew it could be. It has a great floor plan so that large groups don't feel cramped or crowded since there is so much space to move around in. We know that our guests will find it to be a comfortable home away from home with all that these great mountains have to offer.
What makes this House unique
We looked at quite a few properties before this one-and the minute we walked into this one, we knew that we would love to own it and turn it into all that it could be. It is in a great part of town that is close to everything but yet located in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood. The back patio is so peaceful and enjoyable since you look out onto a private park setting with trees, bushes, grass and lots of deer. It is such a nice, peaceful retreat to sit out there and watch the deer and enjoy family and friends.

Really a great house
There is so much space in this house. We had 10 in our party and everyone fit very comfortably with a lot of space to spare. Location and neighborhood are good as well. Large kitchen with a lot of counter space. Seating in the breakfast nook (specifically the bench) left something to be desired, but it isn't terrible by any means. Very impressed with finishings in the kitchen. Property was neat and tidy. Would definitely recommend to others. Side note: I'm not sure what it is, but the exterior shots on this site hardly do the property any justice. Looks much, much better in person.
Perfect Place to Make Memories!
This beautiful home comfortably housed our family of 18 for a family reunion. We were pleasantly surprised by the many wonderful amenities and incredibly thankful to find a Crock Pot and large pitchers! We felt right at home. Very clean and nicely appointed, I would highly recommend this home!
We thank you for the great review of Buckner Bunkhouse. We do try to provide what we think our guests will need for large gatherings. We appreciate and thank you. Ron and Netta
Perfect for Large Families
What a great house for a large family gathering! It has something for everyone.
It is spacious and nicely decorated, very welcoming. The kids loved the game room and hot tub. The thing that I liked the most was how clean it was. I truly could stay all summer.
Our family looks forward to coming back next summer.
Thanks for opening your home to us.
Thanks so much for the awesome review. We haven't had any dissatisfied guests yet as we truly do put lots of effort and love into Buckner Bunkhouse. We are glad you enjoyed it.

Great for our large family. Easily accommodated 21, including kids.
Perfect Home for Large Family
Over the fourth of July weekend my family and I had the chance to stay at this wonderful rental. We had fifteen adults and three small children and the home provided plenty of space for everyone. The well appointed kitchen and gas grill allowed us to eat every meal at the house instead of trying to fight the crowds at the local restaurants. We especially enjoyed the pool table and all the outdoor sitting space. Just about every night and and most meals were enjoyed outdoors in the cool mountain air. I highly recommend this rental for all the amenities and the great price!
What a great review! You mentioned all the attributes we wanted to accomplish a Buckner Bunkhouse to make our guests stay the best. We continue to add things like the pergola on the back patio to make the property more accommodating. We appreciate and thank you, Netta and Ron
A SPECTACULAR home which was the perfect place for all 21 members of my family for our annual vacay!
We thoroughly loved this spacious and very well-appointed/stocked home in Ruidoso. It was perfect for our extended family vacation in June, 2018. It's very close to shopping/dining/golf. Our group ranged in age from 1.5 to 69 and every single person loved the house and the experience. Our hosts, Ron and Netta, were very responsive. When I texted that we were not locating the blender in the kitchen, they brought (a new) one by the house within the hour. We liked it so much, we are seriously considering putting it into a recurring rotation for our annual trek! Thanks, Ron and Netta!
What an awesome review. You all were great guests and we would love to have you back anytime. It is our pleasure to serve our guests the best we can to make their vacation a memorable one. We appreciate the great review and your patronage to Buckner Bunkhouse.
