About Arlene or David

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

great property

i contacted your company a month before arriving to tell them we would be renting 5 days instead of 7. The company representative said I would have to get my refund from the owner directly. The owner was happy to do so, but when she sent the refund to me through Vacation Rentals--it never got to me. We loved the home, but what did you do with my refund! please investigate and get back my money. Thanks ! David Howell

Beautiful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect! It really is close to everything, we actually walked to downtown and short drive to tubing and skiing! it fit 9 people very easily! And didn't feel clustered at all. Very clean and neat would recommend to anyone and am for sure going to be coming back.

The house was nice, the floors and carpet could use a bit of cleaning but over all pretty good

  • 3 of 5

The house is large, except for kitchen. It's in a good location on a very pretty property over looking the river. We had a great time.

Great for our big group!

  • 5 of 5

My two kids, my husband, my Mother in Law, my parents and I all had a really wonderful Thanksgiving here. We toasted marshmallows and made S'mores over the fire pit, soaked in the hot tub, played billiards, played cards and board games, went hiking at Grindstone Lake, and relaxed a lot. The house was well appointed and very conveniently located with plenty of beds for our crew. My parents liked that they had a little apartment to themselves, while my kids liked that there were two beds in their room so they didn't have to share.
