The Soulhouse is closed

Jerry Veazey

The Soulhouse is closed. To most folks, that doesn’t mean much. But, to some of us who enjoyed going up to Montezuma on the weekends to bike, hike or four-wheel, it’s like the passing of an “old friend.” I’m going to miss Sadie’s fresh, homemade scones and steaming hot latte served in those big, oversized cups. I’m going to miss her ever-present smile and cheerful greeting when we walk in the door.

I’ll miss her husband Cullen, and her good friend, and ours, Jesse. I’ll miss picking up a few copies of the Summit Daily and taking them up with us each weekend and dropping them off on the big table for everyone to read. I’ll miss seeing Cathy, Derrick, Jamie, Anthony, John, Anne and many of the other “locals,” and some not so local, who would gather over a cup of coffee and visit and tell stories of their hikes and plans for the day. I’ll miss “Potsie” the shaggy cat, that greeted you when you walked up onto the porch and loved to have his head scratched. I’ll miss the big iron fireplace that warmed you when you came in from an especially cold and snowy day.

Somehow, Montezuma just isn’t going to be the same anymore. But I really hope that, somehow, we can continue to stay in touch and see all of these folks from time to time, because friends like these don’t come along nearly often enough.

The Soulhouse is closed, and with it, a really neat niche of Summit County has passed away.
