Jim Allmon purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2015
Why Jim Allmon chose Ruidoso
We have been to over 30 countries around the world but we love the mountains of NM and Colorado the most. We are in a high stress industry so we have always dreamed of having a home in the mountains to go to relieve that stress. We have looked at dozens of houses throughout NM and CO for many years. Ruidoso appealed to us due to it's proximity to Waco, TX where we live, it's great airport for private aircraft, 6 golf courses, live theater, two casinos, horse racing in the summer, skiing in the winter, wine tasting and so much more. This house at first seemed too small for what we wanted but we quickly fell in love with the coziness as well as the amazing views. We believe there are couples like us who just want to get away for a few days or a few weeks to relax and enjoy the mountains. Why stay in a condo in town with no views but a street and a parking lot when you can just soak in the majesty of gods work, smell the pinions, watch the multitude of wild life pass by the back deck as you sip a glass of wine or a hot cup of coffee on a cold winter day? Your stress and tension just melts away with every passing hour.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Mountain views - I just can't talk about it enough. Just amazing. Stars. More than you have ever seen from a city. You can almost see the nebulas. Wildlife everywhere. A challenging golf course all around you. Hiking trails that give even the most fit person a good workout. Comfortable memory foam mattresses with Egyptian cotton linens, top of the line appliances and high speed internet. Wine just tastes better in the mountains next to a warm fire.

Amazing views, close to town, beautiful home
We honeymooned here, wanting an escape. We definitely got it. The home is in a very quiet neighborhood with beatiful views of the mountains. We enjoyed the hot tub almost every night, even once in the snow. It was truly an amazing experience. We were close enough to town that a trip to the shops in Ruidoso is just a few minutes up the road. There is plenty to do around town if you’re interested in exploring. Hope you have better luck at the casinos than we did!
Thank you Jennifer. We were honored that you chose our home for your honeymoon. Hope to have you again soon!
Our family stayed at Casa Del Aviator the week of Christmas. As soon as we walked in we were WOWED and got "you did awesome mom" from our 19 and 12 year old. The kitchen was fully equipped with all necessities. The bedrooms were super roomy with great beds and bathrooms. The house is in a quiet and nice area. The location was close to be able run into town for groceries, tubing, skiing or casino. Our favorite part of the house was the back deck. It was great to sit out in the morning with a cup of coffee or in the evening with a glass of wine while being kept warm by the fireplace. This house was just warm, cozy and inviting. We were sad to leave. The "Thank You" note with bottled of wine were appreciated. Mr. & Mrs. Allmon have a gem of a house.
Thank you! We are happy that you enjoyed our home!
Perfect home in an excellent location!
We loved our stay!
The house is situated in such a way that you are able to enjoy a spectacular sunrise every morning, as well as a beautiful sunset every evening.
We slept with the windows open every night and let to the sounds of an elk's bugle put us to sleep.
The house is laid out perfectly with a great kitchen and two fireplaces. Very comfortable.
Great hiking nearby, and it's in a perfect location to be able to make day trips to places like the White Sands Desert and nearby petroglyphs.
We will definitely visit Casa del Aviator again.

Little Bit of Heaven
What a wonderful time we had at this beautiful Rainmaker mountain home. The peacefulness of this community was so enjoyable and sitting on the patio taking in the magnificent mountain views was beyond description. The furnishings in the home were top notch and it was fun discovering all the decorations that were geared toward the aircraft and rustic cowboy theme. We have rented vacation homes for 5 years and this tops the list of the best home we have rented. It was immaculate and Jim was always available via text or phone if we had any questions. If you enjoy cooking, the kitchen was stocked with everything you would need. We met lots of neighbors in this community while we were there and everyone was so friendly. We have visited Ruidoso for 40 years and we love staying in the Rainmaker/Alto Lakes area. Golf is great here if you enjoy it but always try to play early in August because there is always a chance for afternoon showers. Lot of good golf courses to play with Rainmaker being one of the best.
Thank you John and Kathy. We appreciate your comments and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The club personnel loved having you here and having Kathy participate in the book club as well as the dog show. Hope to see you again soon.

Great Week at "Casa Del Aviator"
It was very clean and included all items you would have in your own home. Decor was fantastic. Golf course is beatuiful but very challenging. Food at the clubhouse is excellent but a bit pricey. Lots of good restaurants downtown Ruidoso along with grocery shopping at the local Albertsons. Strongly suggest attending local concerts at a theater just before you enter the Rainmaker property. Great and relaxing week.
Beautiful...amazing views. Loved everything. Would definitely stay again on our next visit to Ruidoso.
Thanks Charles. Glad you enjoyed it. See you again soon. .
