Ranch on the Rio Bonito
Welcome to one of the jewels of the Capitan Mountains and Lincoln National Forest, historic Lincoln County and the Quarter Horse capital of the world. The Ranch of the Rio Bonito is a water-rich, multi-purpose property. The Rio Bonito and its 1853 water rights are lifeblood of the property, supplying water to the 42 irrigated acres of rich farmland and to the four large fishing ponds holding trophy rainbow trout and large mouth bass. The park-like setting of 42 irrigated acres, with 15 / more acres sub-irrigated, the four beautiful ponds, the winding live water stream, mountain views and wooded areas are among the many attractive amenities this property has to offer.
The main residence, a charming 3 bedroom ranch house, is complimented by five additional cabins sprinkled throughout the property, each thoughtfully nestled into ideal locations. A 4,600 sq. ft. building near the main residence once served as a bustling farm-to-table restaurant and is versatile enough to be used for a variety of purposes. The building features a spacious wood floor great room with a large stone fireplace and picture windows overlooking the main pond and lush farm. With all of the commercial restaurant equipment still on site, the building could be easily brought back to its former glory of serving fresh foods to hungry patrons.
