About Allen Bryson Owner/Propertyanager

Retired Air Force Lt Col and wife, live in Georgetown TX and enjoy the mountains whenever we can. Married with 5 kids and 13 grand-kids. I was born and raised in Independence MO. My wife grew up in Albuquerque. We meet at college in 1967 and married in 1990…..I'm slow.

Allen Bryson Owner/Propertyanager purchased this condo in 2005

Why Allen Bryson Owner/Propertyanager chose New Mexico

We feel in love with not only Ruidoso, but also Aspen Run condos. They have the best of everything. Only a few blocks from town: shopping and dining. Right on the Cree Meadows golf course and country club (also good food and a good bar). Only a few miles from the Inn of the Mountain Gods and in the middle of the beautiful Lincoln Country mountains and Billy the Kid country. The view from the large patio is splendid: watch the golfers finish on hole 18, view of the 12,000' Sierra Blanca mountain, and watch the deer graze.

What makes this condo unique

Fully equipped condo that included central heat/air, a gas log fire place, a wine cooler, a large patio equipped with soft party lights and a heat lamp, King size beds in the bedrooms and a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room, and the master bedroom on the main level.

Enjoyable Experience

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five stayed in Ruidoso for spring break. We found everything we needed at the townhome from washer and dryer to coffee, from movies to wine. We definitely felt welcome and at home. We ventured out to partake in snow activities during the day, which weren't stellar at this time of year, but we loved coming "home" to a warm environment. The deck over the golf course and the stars at night were gorgeous. We enjoyed grilling and cooking our own meals as well as strolling around the neighborhood. We also enjoyed picking out DVDs from the home library. Our family enjoyed the memories we made in Ruidoso very much.

"Great place to stay"....

  • 4 of 5

The condo is very well equipped with everything you need. Located just a short drive into town for dinner, shopping, etc. Perfect for 2 couples and 2 small dogs. It was relaxing, quiet and cozy and we felt right at home! Condo is clean, the beds are so comfortable, just a nice place to stay in. We enjoyed the beautiful view of the mountains and the snow. Would have been perfect if only the patio chair cushions were better maintained which was fine as the cold weather did not permit us to sit outdoors. The owner responded quickly to my e-mail and offered to resolve the concern at hand.We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. Again sorry for the appearance of the cushion on the back patio. Although my housekeepers are very thorough there is no way to anticipate a stray dog/cat using the patio for a potty. We have corrected that problem and hope you will stay with us in the future.

Loved staying here!

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed in several places in Ruidoso over the years, but this one is the best. The location is quite good - very near shopping and restaurants, etc - without that grueling trip up and down steep and curving mountain roads. It has a lovely deck with a nice view of the golf course too.

We would definitely stay here again. This is one of several condo units available for rent in this location, and I understand they are all different, but I really liked the way this one provided so much for cooking and eating meals. The kitchen has a huge collection of dishes, pans, utensils, etc. I don't remember needing anything more and I nearly always cook several meals.

The beds weren't as comfy as some places we've stayed, and the bathrooms are quite small - this is the only reason I gave it a 4 star rating instead of 5.

But everything was clean and neat. I loved being able to just drive up to the door and use a code to get in. No keys to go pick up and turn back in, or to worry about losing.

Thanks for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind comments. This is the first comment I've had on the comfort of the beds. Can you tell me if they were too soft or hard. We stay there an don't find them uncomfortable, but them comfort varies from person to person. Let me know if you suggest an improvement. Thanks, Allen

Best in 50+ years...

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Ruidoso for over fifty years to take a break from the summer heat in Texas. This August was probably the most enjoyable that we have ever had, and we attribute that to this condo and its owners. The condo is great in every respect and the owners are people that you feel like you have known forever. This is truly a five star operation!

Could not have been better . . . .

  • 5 of 5

This is my first VRBO rental ever and if the rest are like this, I'm going to have some GREAT times. This condo on the golf course was clean, neat, and well stocked and supplied with all appliances and instructions on using them. The owners were responsive, courteous, and went out of their way to facilitate our short vacation. I absolutely plan on staying there again at the earliest opportunity.
