About Cynthia Robinson

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

Why Cynthia Robinson 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'.

Thank you for letting stay in your home. The accommodations were perfect!

I want to complement you on your style and decor, your home is decorated beautifully and has a sense of warmth that many people can not pull off.

It was fun to find the Aliens thought the house and property. The sunsets out the living room window were breathe taking.

We would recommend your home to others traveling in the area.

Thank you again,

Good experience

  • 4 of 5

Roswell Roost worked very well for us. The home was clean and kitchen was well equipped for cooking. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms were nice. Not sure where we'd have set up the rollaway bed if we'd have used it. The rollaway isn't the most ideal option for another adult if they want privacy. The bed would have to be put away each day in order to move around the house. Great alternative to a hotel for a small group.

Roswell Roost

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect house for us, it was clean and cozy. When we turned from Broadway onto Ryan, I thought what have I got myself into. But then I saw the house, inside fenced yard.

Everything was perfect in this house. Can't say anything bad.

Go check it out for yourself.

As Comfortable as Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time staying at the Roost and we absolutely love it. We booked our stay during what turned out to be an unseasonable heat wave ( I saw 110F at the bank in town) but between the 6% humidity and the cold AC at the house we barely noticed. This year we had a family of quail in the yard every morning and my son finally got to see an elusive horned toad over by the AC condenser outside. I ate breakfast in the cool morning air while gazing out at the mountain in the distance from the front porch chairs, and actually got to enjoy the hammock in the back this year. We also made good use of the gas grill out back. We had a small glitch with the WiFi one morning, but a quick text to Cynthia and she had it taken care of within the hour. The house is, as always, clean, comfortable, and very well equipped. I look forward to returning again!
