One Of New Mexico's Best Kept Secrets

Dec 20, 2007
Surrounded by the lush pine valley landscapes and Southern Rocky Mountains, Rainmakers is one of New Mexico's best-kept secrets. Located in Ruidoso, Rainmakers sits high above the surrounding towns and city for an almost birds-eye view of the towns and scenic landscapes below. With comfortable temperatures year round, it's easy to see why this resort town has quickly become one of the world's most coveted mountain vacation destinations.

Golf and sports enthusiasts can enjoy a variety of venues and resorts throughout the foothills of the Southern Rocky Mountains. Rainmakers will soon boast one of the finest golf courses in the entire southwest. The community's highly anticipated 18-hold championship course has been designed by internationally renowned course architect Robert Trent Jones, II. It is scheduled to open this spring. In addition to golf, The Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino offers music and entertainment, while the Cree Meadows Country Club is perfect for taking in a golf lesson and more beautiful scenery. Horse racing, horseback riding, and biking on the Fort Stanton Trails are just a few more outdoor activities to take part in while in Ruidoso.

Taking a tour of Ruidoso is just one of the many opportunities to explore and enjoy the area's cultural attractions. Tours and day trips are a chance to experience the White Sands Loop, Valley of Fires, and the Lincoln Loop to understand the history of old New Mexico at its best. Bed and breakfasts and traditional eateries are scattered throughout the town, and it's easy to take a short drive out to neighboring communities and learn about the American Southwest firsthand. Popular attractions include the spot where 'Billy the Kid' was born, and visitor centers around some of the country's 'deadliest' streets. From Fort Stanton to White Oaks, there's no shortage of adventure and exploration, all accompanied with an unforgettable history lesson.

For hikers and biking enthusiasts, The Three Rivers Trail and The Fort Stanton Trails are some of the best places to enjoy the spectacular natural surroundings. Rainmakers is easily accessible to both, and the array of activities doesn't stop there: camping, swimming, panning, and history tours are just a few more pursuits to indulge in as a visitor or resident at Rainmakers. The natural beauty of the Ruidoso area offers breathtaking views and scenes every season; spring and summer feature fresh blooms and lush fields throughout the hills. Cooler months bring rain and gusty winds but it's still possible to enjoy clear-blue skies to take in the miles of mountains and hills surrounding the area.

For those interested in sampling the area's nightlife, Ruidoso is home to a number of restaurants, live music venues, theatres, lounges and bars. From a matinee performance to a complete dining experience at an upscale restaurant, there's no shortage of unique locales to choose from. Of course, one of the area's most popular venues is The Spencer Theatre for the Performing Arts. Adjacent to the main entrance at Rainmakers, the Spencer hosts touring Broadway shows, musicals and dance performances in an architecturally stunning $23 million state-of-the-art facility.

With a four-season climate, outstanding golf club facilities and so much to do both on and off property, Rainmakers is ideal for a primary residence, second home or retirement getaway.
