AN ADOBE ABODE
The suite inclues living and dining room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom which give you rather spacious living quarters during your stay with us.
The suite is an adobe surround with artistic traditional Northern New Mexico architecture. The entrance has a tree trunk as one corner support for the front porch. The front hand door was hand made by the architect, Roy Davin, with over twenty pieces of wood featuring a turquoise door knocker from Mexico which Roy gave to us and completes the artistic expression. On the east wall of the hall leading from the front door with the bedroom on the right and leading to the living and dining room, are three small windows, a traditional style for bringing in a little light when a large window does not work. The bedroom has a window looking out to the river and the cliffroses which are in bloom in May through June. One of the largest cottonwood trees can be seen from these windows which house a number of birds. In the bedroom you will find a queen bed surrounded by thick luxurious hand tied wool rugs, a closet whose doors are also hand made by architect Roy Davin. In the closet are shelves for storing your luggage pieces.
Mexican tile surrounds the sink and again in the shower of the bathroom. Our young friend, David Hamlow, used bicycle handle bars to create a hand towel holder for the sink plus a bath towel holder. David and his wife Heidi bicycled around the world in 2001-2002. David admits that bicycles likely saved him in his early teen years plus he is a master bicycle mechanic. David prepared Diana’s bicycle for her cross the country ride in 2009.
The living room combined with a dining room have as the center point a corner set of French doors which open to both the south looking upstream and west riverside. A red leather chair with accompanying reading light allows one person to stay in the bedroom for a rest while one lucky person reads in the living room. A day bed allows a second reader to lounge while reading or working on a lap top. This day bed serves as a twin bed with the possibility of a second twin bed to be made up allowing the suite to serve up to four persons.
Mexican tile again adds a decorative touch to the kitchen which includes a refrigerator, a stove top, a microwave plus kitchen utensils. The doors and cabinets of the kitchen and the bathroom were again, hand made by Roy Davin.
