              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: Elizabeth purchased The Woodward as a crumbling mansion in a neglected neighborhood in 1994 with the dream and duty to restore her to her original grandeur. Delighted but weary from a 17-year career in politics (after starting the first woman-owned Lobbying Firm in Kansas), she sought to save one old stately, gorgeous mansion from ruin. Her passion extended to most of a city block and has taken every minute for 20 years!! Now her Village (Queendom in her words) hosts the nicest events, guests and magical memories!! As a mostly one-woman show, Elizabeth and her friends, offer a since of old-fashioned pampering and individual attention to guests and their families!

              Why the Owner Chose Topeka:
              The Woodward Inns on Fillmore offers enough lodging, big enough or little enough, just right for every lodging need, from one room for a short stay to full Inns to extended stays. The Woodward Inns are close to everything and in the middle of America, easy for all families to reach. One guest said upon entering The Woodward Inns Village, 'I feel like I've just stepped into a Novel!' The Woodward Inns offers relaxation and rejuvenation apart from the rest of the world - something we could all use!!

              The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
              While elegant and beautiful, The Woodward Inns also offers the guest a moment with no pretenses, a quiet experience of a day gone by. Kick off your shoes, get comfy and just be yourself in a homey get-away, mansion style!!
