Dear Dedicated Casa Somerset Family,
You folks quickly got our attention so, a very special thanks from the Woodward’s is in order! To sum our romantic 2 days and 2 nights getaway/hideaway at the beautiful Casa Somerset…. Cheri and I had a 2-XL, double whammer of a time!
It was May 20th, 2010 when the Lord providentially led us to beautiful Casa Somerset. Showing up unannounced, Christine and Michael stopped their laborious yard work and welcomed us. Secluded in the tall trees near a town by the same name that doesn’t exist, with opened arms they gave us a private tour of their unbelievable 7,000 square foot newly built Tuscany Manor. After our tour we immediately made reservations for May 20-22, 2011, celebrating another year of life, cancer free! All glory and honor goes to the precious Name of Jesus!
When we arrived last Friday the 20th, Michael greeted us and got us settled in Casa’s beautiful Raphael Room. We then joined Michael atop the Casa’s 1600 square foot wrap around veranda and got better acquainted. And what better way to relax and get to know folks, pop open a good bottle vino and enjoy some of Mike’s delicious appetizers. When Christine arrived it didn’t take long to join in the celebration of what is going to be a new and cherished friendship!
Meeting the entire extended Hursey family felt like a good ole fashioned family Christmas. What a great time we had with Joe Hursey Saturday morning. His private tour of the Paola’s Civil War Museum, telling us about each exhibit was an enriching education in the colorful heritage of native culture that has surrounded Miami County for over 150 years. The fabulous foods prepared by Christine’s son, Chef extraordinaire Jeff Thomas will also be long remembered. And to observe the way the entire Hursey family pitched in to help Chef Jeff do his magic was a true testimony to the love of family. We assured Jeff, Cheri and Woody will be the first to sign up for Jeff’s cooking classes that will begin this August.
Next year’s May 20th 2012 Casa Somerset celebration is already on the books. But we won’t wait that long to gather up friends so they too can share in a fabulous 2-XL meal and truly blessed fellowship with the Hursey’s and company. Be assured Casa team we will not stop talking about the wonderful time we had, our very special friends we now consider family at the Casa Somerset B & B.
So to our friends, make your reservation and take the short drive to the old abandoned town of Somerset Kansas. Relax, kickback and enjoy delicious food, beautiful settings, and the elegant accommodations in one of the private rooms the Hursey’s have waiting for you. Because at Casa Somerset, you are family.
Very Pleased Customers, and now dear friends, and now family,
Woody and Cheri Woodward
