About Cynthia Robinson

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

Why Cynthia Robinson chose New Mexico

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'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Couldn't have asked for better accommodations. We were visiting our grandson who is attending NMMI and he loved the place. Everything was perfect with a fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room. Would recommend this house to all of my family and friends.

Understated from the exterior...lovely, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

The initial impression when arriving at the gate is a little hesitant. The neighborhood is a bit intimidating until you realize the brilliance of the owners design. It is simple outside therefore does not attract attenrion. The yard is comfortable and large and the house is lovely and very comfortable. You immediately feel at home and the kitchen is very well stocked.

The living room furniture is comfortable, the master was the only bed we used, but it was very comfortable with quality linens. The bathrooms were well equipped and the filtered drinking water was a real plus.

We has two small dogs and the fenced yard was a real plus when taking them out.

Overall this is a wonderful rental and we do not have any second thought about recommending it to anyone traveling to Roswell.

A well thought out, realistically priced, family rental.

Again, Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Roswell Roost in the last 2 years and it was an absolute delight. We stayed 7 nights and loved every relaxing minute of it.

We're a family of five with boys 15, 12, and 8. Everyone was comfortable and had an excellent time. The kids love the Foosball table and the board games! The house itself is roomy, clean, and comfortable, the kitchen fully stocked with every dish, pot, pan, and cooking spice imaginable. The fridge had a full complement of condiments as well as a basket of eggs. Previous guests have left staples like flour, butter, and sugar in the freezer as well, and there were even tea bags for iced tea in the cabinet. All we had to do was pick up burgers and steaks for grilling on the patio and make sure to restock whatever we used up. The yard is neat and well kept with mature shade trees, patio chairs, a hammock, and a ready-to-cook gas grill. Watching the storms roll in from the west the front porch while enjoying burgers was like watching 4th of July fireworks over the plains. The area itself may be a bit old and worn, but we always felt safe and secure at all hours. The neighborhood is quiet and the streets clean, and shopping was just down the road. The Roost is a tidy little gem on the edge of town. Cynthia is easy to work with and has a Welcome Book with everything needed right on the counter when you walk in. We will definitely be back again!

Hidden gem in Roswell

  • 5 of 5

Roswell Roost is everything it's advertised to be and more. It's beautifully decorated, child friendly, and it served as the ideal base for our family trip to Roswell. From the kids enjoying the foosball table to watching sunsets from the porch, it provided a wonderful memory making experience for our family. We have traveled and stayed in hotels, but never again. The convenience coupled with the privacy that this afforded us means our hotel days are over. The next time we come to Roswell I know where we'll be staying. :)

Truly a home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

From the first interaction with Cynthia, this was a great experience. She was very thorough with explanations and how-to's. Upon arriving at the property, we found everything exactly as promised, and were delighted to have this home to ourselves for a few days. The many little amenities were appreciated, and we will definitely stay at Roswell Roost again when we return!

I stayed here with 2 friends last week. We had an excellent visit and really enjoyed the accommodations. I have never rented a house so well equipped and so well decorated! This house has everything you will need. The surrounding neighborhood was a little scary looking upon driving in to the rental but we had no problems whatsoever. We really appreciated the fenced in property for our dogs. Thanks so much, we are really looking forward to returning!
