Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Ruidoso, NM, USA:
Easy access--sleeps 13 max- close to everything. Jan- Feb Ski Free at Ski Apache. We will give you 2 FREE passed to Ski Apache for reservations made in Jan- Feb. We are an easy access property. You'll love the river that runs behind the house all year long. Wild life fresh air and a comfortable environment. Our separate master suite is perfect for those in your party who want or need a little added privacy. 5minutes from everything you want or need.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are close to town , shopping and all kinds of fun activities. River runs all year long
