My name is Arlene Edwards. My parents built the house the year I was born in 1959. My father Alfred and mother Cidelia raised 8 children in this house, with 1 bathroom --just imagine.
I purchased the house after my mother died in 1985. She was 46 years old. I bought the house and finished raising my 5 younger brothers and 2 daughters in this same home. This house holds lots of wonderful memories and brought lots of joy to our family. We still celebrate our Christmas together in this home, with as many as 5 christmas trees, more food than can be eaten and sometimes as many as 100 people. No, we don't have a sit down dinner but we do play lots of musical chairs thoughout the night. If you get up you basically loose your seat. We totally enjoy our time together as we watch the younger children attack Santa when he comes in the door. So we continue to make special memories year after year. We hope that you, your families and your friends enjoy this house as much as we have through the years. We also hope that you find peace and relaxation and hurry back to spend time at Rio Del Oso our special home in beautiful Ruidoso NM.
Arlene or David purchased this house in 1985

Our family - 9 of us - LOVED this property! The bedrooms were all separate enough for privacy, but the communal areas were roomy for us all to gather and visit. We played foosball and pool, fished out the back door and enjoyed the hot tub and grill. I wish we had more time to enjoy the creekside fire pit, but it was a quick trip for us!
House is beautiful. The back yard is too beautiful. I hate that we couldn't use the fire pit due to fire risks. The house was clean and so was the yard. I would use this house again if I rented the same places, but I like to rent different cabins so we can get to know Ruidoso better. The only thing that disappointed us was that the A/C didn't work in the separate bedroom and it was hot. The toilet paper was not enough (which is fine cause we didn't mind buying it) but it was stated that it was provided. The trash bags were not available either and it said it was provided also. We don't mind buying that stuff. I would recommend it to others. It is a beautiful place.
Beautiful!! The pictures accurately depict the property. The outside is just as beautiful as the inside. The picnic table was a great place for the 15 of us to sit together. The house and property were clean and well maintained. Arlene was great to work with and very patient with all of our questions and concerns. We did not find the ping pong table top but we did not need it with all the other amenities. The Master suite was the perfect place for our parents to have some quiet time while the rest of us stayed up late!! We enjoyed going to the Flying J Ranch, Funtrackers, and the local shops. We also enjoyed just being together at the house. Several commented they were worried we would feel cramped or on top of each other but we did not feel that way at all! Plenty of room! I would recommned this property!!
I forgot to mention in my previous review the lack of noise from the neighbors. We really loved being able to send the older kids to Funtrackers without having to attend. It was right next door. Not that that was bothersome, in the house, we heard nothing!!!! When we were outside, Funtrackers was closed so there was no bother at all! Do not be afraid that your stay will be impeded by the location. It will not!
Several times a year, we get together in Ruidoso with friends from high school. After 20 years, we now all have kids and we need space for them as well. This was perfect. It is right next door to Funtrackers. We sent the older kids over with money and it was awesome!!! Grownups didn't have to go! There was plenty of lounging space in the house with multiple couches and extra chairs to pull up to a table that is already oversized. The kids loved the game room and since they aren't experts at anything, they didn't care about the condition of the pool table. They had fun and that is what counts. The kitchen is small but we used the table for extra prep space when needed. No big deal. Too many cooks in the kitchen is irritating anyway. The back yard is awesome and we have already decided we need to come back for the summer when we can lounge at the picnic table. Although the fire pit did get used!
I will also say that Arlene was the best to work with! We had a family matter that prevented us from using our original date and she was spectacular in working with us for another weekend.
Our family of 12 decided to for go the usual Christmas, running around shopping, spending an excess of money and cooking for hours to have it end all to soon. So we decided to have a family get away that would allow us to just be togather as a family and enjoy something different. This home afforded us just that! 4 beatifully decorated bedrooms, plenty of space & a gameroom. This home is very unique, beatifully decorated for the holidays and convienently located. We spent some time in town, tried our hand at snow boarding/sking, ate out, but for the most part we stayed at the home or close to it where we did a little cooking, enjoyed the homes' gameroom; where we played pool & fooseball and walked over to the Go Cart Track. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in the spring/summer with the creek running just out the backdoor, the outdoor sitting area & BBQ pit we didnt get to enjoy due to the winter cold. This home is as advertised! We would stay here again and recommend it to others, just keep in mind the kitchen accomodates only one cook & there is only one bathroom located in the main house, So relax and enjoy what life/this home has to offer
We are kid friendly and have the cutest play house you've ever seen out back.
We have a custom 16 ft and a 8 ft picnic table near the river for everyone to enjoy the river and a tire swing.
