YOUR CHANCE TO BECOME A RUIDOSO BUSINESS OWNER.

This prime 1 ¾ + acre riverfront real estate near Midtown in Ruidoso, New Mexico, is close to lodging, dining and shopping. Surrounded by trees and the sound of the river in the background, the beautifully groomed, commercially zoned property has hosted Lincoln County’s most memorable events as well as enchanting weddings for brides and grooms.

Opportunity

This one of a kind New Mexico mountain destination event planning and services business established in 2010 includes the extravagant venue featured in this google earth link, photo gallery, wedding video, and drone tour.

The Logan wedding was an amazing event that was recently held at the Sanctuary. Video shared by Gray’s Studio of Amarillo, Texas.

The covered outdoor Pavilion seats 150 with a connected covered River Deck dance floor and an elevated DJ stage. The chandelier adorned gazebo is a favorite of brides even in the winter with dinner reception and dancing hosted in our organically inspired Greenhouse complete with church-style windows and gorgeous lighting. The Conservatory connects with a semi-transparent breezeway for a feeling of continuity with the dancing, dining and buffet area.

This unique facility is equipped to provide a semi all-inclusive venue with 60-inch round tables, white garden chairs, linens, sound system for ceremonies, as well as an on-site event manager. We have our own vendor website, GetMarriedInRuidoso.com to assist brides in booking a reputable caterer, floral designer, cake baker, photographer and lodging that are not included in the venue pricing.

   A steady and strategic marketing plan has been a constant at Sanctuary on the River since its inception. The property has received favorable press in not only bridal publications but also in larger, mainstream publications including New Mexico Magazine and Su Casa Magazine.

In our eighth year, the company makes consistently strong marketing efforts to promote their business. This includes wedding magazines, bridal shows in Texas and New Mexico and social media (Facebook, Pinterest, MyWedding.com) as well as amazing word-of-mouth from our satisfied clients. After establishing the company’s name throughout the past eight years, the current owner is approaching retirement and is ready to see a new owner take the company to the next level.

To maximize full use of the property and flesh out the concept more completely, a one-stop shopping concept could be very lucrative. For example, have a florist, cake bakers, DJ, wedding officiate and caterer on-site. Currently these services are all supplied by outside vendors.

Alternative uses to be considered for this prime property include, a brewery/winery and restaurant along the river with boutique concert performances, a drug/alcohol/rehab facility, or medical/dental offices.
