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

We enjoyed our stay here. Plenty of room for all of us. Location was great. Very clean and well maintained.
I would rent this house again in the future. Good communication with the owner, very nice.
Plenty of room and beautifully decorated. Enjoyed the rain while sitting out on the patio. The creek in the back was awesome. We plan on staying here again in the future.
Upon our arrival we found there were no keys nor complimentary wine. This is not a home for small children due to the slope in the floor, no railings on the stairs, the one short railing was loose as was some of the wooden chairs. The yard was not well maintained, broken outdoor lighting, the play house for the kids was full of spider webs and mouse droppings. I know in the outdoors there's going to be critters but the uncut grass was full of large spiders. The bbq grill was quite dirty, had to clean it prior to use. The only issues I reported to the owner was about the keys and wine, the rest I didn't because we only had the house 2 days and I didn't want to spend that time getting repairs done not to mention these issues looked like they had been existing for some time. Also there was a handful of remotes for the tv and dvd players but could not find one to operate the tv and had no clue how to operate the sound system (would have been nice if there was instructions). In spite of all this we made the best of our time there, thank goodness for the game room and go cart track! One more note, it states it sleeps 11-13 we were allowed 9.
The property was great and so convenient; home had a lot of character and a great backyard with fire-pit near the river. The game room and hot tub were an added bonus to the home, which was clean and comfortable. Home owner even left us a gift basket with wine!
We had a great weekend and would definitely stay here again!
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.
