Accommodations
The George Walker House welcomes only one party at a time, whether you are one person or a crowd.
The back bedroom has a double bed. The front bedroom has a double and a twin bed. A queen size
air mattress and two Camp cots are also available.

Woodstoves and WiFi!!!
We heat with wood in the winter - but WiFi is available year-round thanks to VTC and Winston's Router.  
You can e-mail and Skype to your hearts content!

Kitchen Essentials
The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, an electric range, a microwave oven, a toaster, and a coffee
maker. Dishes, glassware, pots and pans, cutlery, and all of the usual utensils are also provided, as are
dishtowels,  paper towels, dish-washing supplies, and aluminum foil.

Groceries
The refrigerator is stocked with milk, eggs, orange juice, bagels or English muffins, jelly, butter, ketchup,
and mustard. In the cupboards you will find coffee, tea, cold cereal, oatmeal, raisins, crackers, several
packages of soup, macaroni and cheese, and spaghetti, and such staples as oil, vinegar, honey, sugar,
and spices. Bring your own fresh produce, meats, and special dietary needs.

Bath, Bed, and Laundry
The bathroom cabinet is stocked with towels, facecloths, soap, tissues, and a first-aid kit.

The bedrooms are supplied with sheets, pillows, quilts, and blankets (down comforter during the chilly months).
 We provide window fans during the summer months.

The laundry room has a washer and a dryer, and is equipped with laundry detergent and bleach.

Entertainment
There is no television reception at the George Walker House, but a VCR and videotapes on birding
and other natural history topics (plus a couple of cowboy movies), and an extensive and growing library
of field guides, books about Southwestern flora, fauna, history, and culture, and some mindless novels
provide a pleasant substitute to the evening news. Several games and puzzles are on the bookshelf as
well.  The closest source of a local newspaper is the Rodeo Grocery, in Rodeo, New Mexico, fifteen miles
from here. USA Today is available at the Portal Store.

Gasoline
Gas is available in San Simon, Arizona, and Animas and Lordsburg, New Mexico. Please plan accordingly.  We do not keep gas
on hand.  Rule of thumb is to gas up when down to a quarter tank no matter where you are.
