About The Owner

Michael and Susan Alston-Richardson

Lovin' life on the farm!

Why The Owner chose Roswell

I love living in the country and have always wanted to have a B & B. I like to see the reactions from people staying at our cottage when they experience our unique and beautiful view of Roswell.

What makes this cottage unique

You have a private separate Cottage in which to stay. It's cozy and fully equipped. Comfortable beds. A huge deck surrounds the cottage on three sides (two sides covered/one side open). The deck overlooks our pond which has fish, birds and other wildlife. The deck also overlooks our fields and the Spring River which also has abundant wildlife for viewing and provides a peaceful setting in which to relax.

This is a wonderful spot to stay in while visiting family or trying to find aliens in Roswell. We will definitely be back! The Richardson’s are the best hosts and I can only imagine the care they give to their family and friends they actually know. Ha! I was here for my birthday and had no worries in the world about anything. Just fabulous and I can’t thank you both enough! We will be back and I hope that is okay!

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing place to get away from everything this is the perfect place for that. The dogs just loved the pond. We will go back for sure.

Lovely oasis

  • 5 of 5

What a comfortable home away from home. We were able to spend several nights here with our son before classes started at NMMI. Susan and Michael are wonderful and attentive hosts. We will definitely be back.

The pictures don"t represent the property well. This dwelling had several other rentals on the property. With that being said, the inside of the residence had a musty and dirty odor.The inside needed painting and the appliances needed cleaning. The silverware and dishes were also dirty. The baseboards were dirty ,and there were bugs and spiders crawling around the baseboards. The A.C. cooled,but took some time. The outside deck was dirty ,and had bird poop on the railing. The BBQ grills were also dirty. The bedding also smelled like mildew. There was also a stench odor (sewer) comming from the tank area. THE IS VERY DIRTY RENTAL . Reccomendation would be to clean, wash and paint the property. You should also have an exterminator spray your rental for spiders and bugs.. This is the dirtiest rental I have ever seen . I ended up staying one night,but should have left.. These folks need to refund my $$$. Do the right thing and make it right. I doubt these folks will do the right thing. So, I'm out $$$$$ for a dirty and nasty rental. My advice is to stay away

Owner's Response: I am very disappointed in this renters review. The pictures of our property look just like the property itself. Many renters claim the property is much nicer then the pictures even portray. The Cottage is located on a 15 acre retreat center/farm. There are other rentals on the retreat center but only one other was rented to two quiet sisters that weekend and that rental is more than 150 feet away from the Cottage. The inside of the Cottage is not in need of paint and was clean and ready for them and linens freshly washed and clean. This property is in the country and an occasional bird comes in and out of the porch but all was wiped down before they arrived. When the renters arrived they had an extra adult guest that they did not tell us about.They arrived later than they planned due to car trouble and were angry about that when they arrived. We showed them around the Cottage and indicated how everything worked including the air conditioning. The renter called about and hour later and and asked if the a/c was working. I said yes and my husband went to the Cottage to check and make sure it was running properly. When my husband entered the front door he found the children jumping up and down on the furniture in the living room while the adults were imbibing on the back deck. He lowered the temperature on the a/c (as we had told the renters they could do if they wanted it cooler or warmer). The air conditioning was working perfectly. We regularly treat the rentals for pests. The "tank" the renter is referring to is a pond for fishing and irrigation. It doesn't have a "sewer odor". It's a pond not a swimming pool. All the previous renters have enjoyed the pond and view and many fish in it. We didn't realize that the renters hadn't stayed the second night until we got a nasty email from the man the next Monday and again a week after. They never complained or stated anything was dirty while they were here. They ruined towels and left dirt spots on the bedroom carpet (I have pictures of both). They broke the glass butter dish and threw it in the trash without saying a word. I found little pieces of the broken dish on the kitchen floor. This Cottage has been part of the VRBO rental system for 10 years and has always had 5 star reviews, as you can see. We have three full guest books with wonderful reviews form the many people who have stayed with us and loved it! I think this renter took the anger he arrived with out on us and our property.

Quaint and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time during our short trip during 4th of July holiday. The property was adorable, clean and comfortable. The bed was super comfy. The breakfast supplied was awesome. Nothing like farm fresh eggs. Owner was very nice and accommodating. Look forward to returning next time we visit my Dad.
