Room 22

Room 22, located in the Historic Annex (Vander Wagen family‘s original home), features a queen-size bed (with pillow-top mattress), has its own bath facilities, and an interestingly-shaped desk of Mexican, rustic design and solid, fragrant pine with many odd shaped drawers and curvaceous shapes! The bed is fitted with high quality linen, a colorful southwestern-patterned comforter and an original Pendleton Wool Blanket. Headboard by the Zuni Woodworking enterprize (located nearby, also a division of Zuni Shopping Center). A plush futon anchors this room (and can convert to a single, narrow bed for possible additional sleeping accommodation). Numerous lamps allow for lounging in different areas of the room. A wall mounted LCD television set driven by satellite-based DishTV network stands ready to inform & entertain guests.  This room is cozy and adequately sun-lit from the east: at certain times of the year, a single, well defined sunbeam bisects the room upon sunrise! Plush carpeting, colorful upholstery and “tongue and groove” knotty pine paneling enhance the warm, private yet spacious feeling of the room; this also makes this Room a favorite of Guests wishing to partake of a better selection of books: novels, Zuni reference material and assorted literary works occupy several shelves. Cooling is provided via a wall mounted,  refrigerated air conditioner, for those summer periods when Zuni does get somewhat hot! Heating is produced by a blown air furnace  which also serves the other 2 nearby rooms (Nos 21 & 23) and supplemented by a personal ceramic heater.  The hallway linking rooms 21-22-23 features a refreshment / coffee / tea station well provided for and including a refrigerator, a microwave oven and an icemaker.  It also leads to a spacious, tree-lined, elevated private deck: a favorite lounging spot during clement evenings! Original paintings by Zuni artists Chris Natachu, Herrin Othole (Art Instructor at Zuni High School) and Adrian Soseeah adorn the walls, along with a painting by  Elaine Thomas and cottonwood carvings by Alan Lewis: some of those items were produced by the artists during their formative years and were acquired from annual Art Shows held at the Zuni High School.
