Owner info

About the owner: I have been in the Vacation Home Rental Business for over 15 years.

Why the Owner Chose Roswell:
This piece of property has been in my family for 50 years, with an old garage/barn and a bunk house that was used many years ago. I decided that it would be fun to have a new home put on it and turn it into a vacation home. Roswell is now getting thousands of visitors a year. Just about everyone that has come and stayed has enjoyed, 'Roswell Roost'.
