This door is never locked. Once in hallway turn right and enter door to basement. This door also is never locked, but keep it closed and you may lock it from the inside behind you. The hallway has doors to a powder room, laundry room and door to rest of the house (always locked). Go down stairs and you will see Kokopelli, Hopi patron of hospitality and long-distance ties.

Off Limits and Nearby
Guests are not allowed in the owner's private quarters (first and second story), on front porch or back deck. Always enter and leave through the garage. Smoking is permitted on the blue bench. If you want a quiet meditation space or picnic area, there is a park a half-block west with connecting hiking trails along a brook with mountain views.
To conserve resources, change your towels and bed linens only as needed, not every day. We provide a fresh supply at the beginning of your stay and make up your bed, but you are on your own after that. Do not throw damp towels in laundry basket as they may spoil; hang to dry before depositing them there. There are extra blankets, including an eiderdown in the wardrobe and blanket chest. There are also a small fan and space heater (which also works as a fan in summertime). If you are using the futon or davenport, double or queen sheets fit the futon and twin sized fits the davenport (love seat). There is an ample supply in the closet.
All windows can be opened. At night most seasons you'll want to sleep with them open to get the benefit of that delicious mountain air. During the day when air conditioning is on, please insure the windows are closed. Do not open windows when heat is on. The basement is usually 2-3 degrees cooler than the rest of the house--nice in summer at least. In winter, use the small space heater or let us know to adjust the thermostat (located upstairs, there is no separate thermostat for the basement). You can also turn on the oven for a few minutes to take the chill off in winter. The stove and oven are gas.
Trash and Garbage
There are several trash cans throughout the apartment. Use them and empty them when full. Put recyclables in the container in the garage. At the end of your stay, empty refrigerator, collect all garbage and take out to garbage can just inside the gate where you enter the backyard.
Some Special Notes
The futon lets down very easily, just pull and lift. It can be temperamental putting it back up, do not force.
The TV has a standard entertainment lineup from DirecTV, complete with local channels, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)BC, AMC, Turner, BBC etc. and recording and "watch from the beginning" features. Do not order any Pay-for-view programs. You are welcome, however, to set recording for programs you might otherwise miss.
There is a fold-out card table or work table and inflatable double bed in the adjourning storage room. Ask before using. There is an ironing board and iron in bedroom closet.
Please do not handle or remove any of the artworks or American Indian decor. Replace books on shelf after use for the next guest. Put board games back in their place.
Check-in time is 3 p.m. of the day of your arrival. Check-out time is 12 noon of the day of your departure.
Lock the door behind you and leave the key in the place you found it.
