About Lori Draper

I am a retired banker and my husband is a retired teacher and coach. We originally came from Michigan and have lived in the Seward area since 1977. This property is still our home, but since our children moved out, it's big enough to share with you.

Lori Draper purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Lori Draper chose Jesse Lee Heights

We designed and built this home to move in from the mile 7 area of Seward to be closer to the school and to town, as well as to take advantage of a little less snow and and the extended garden season.

What makes this apartment unique

When we were laying out our house plan for this lot, we ended up with so many windows because there simply isn't a way to look that doesn't have a fantastic view. It's so convenient to be close to stores and down town. The North Wing has the best views of the ocean and Mt. Alice, but also has a view of Mt. Marathon and Iron Mountain from the West side. We also have easy access to hiking on the cross country running trails at Seward High School, as well as a short hike to a waterfall.

Perfect place to stay in Seward

  • 5 of 5

There is no better place to stay in Seward! It felt like a home away from home. The place is open and inviting with beautiful views from every window. It is beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable. The property is in a convenient location in Seward so you can get out and enjoy the beautiful scenery. But it's also a great place to spend stay in and relax. It is quiet and private. The owners have seen to even the smallest of details to ensure a wonderful stay. They are warm and friendly and make you feel welcome and at home. Upon arriving there was a wonderful surprise of homemade sourdough bread and jam. It was a delicious treat to enjoy during my stay. I cannot say enough good things about this place! I'm already planning my next trip to come and stay again!

Great place in Seward!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a wonderful place to stay at in Seward. It does not have a full kitchen, but there are lots of good dining options in Seward, so you'll never feel the need for one. It has a nice large couch, which you fully appreciate when the weather turns sour! Lori is a great host, she takes care of every detail, and could not be more helpful. If we get another chance to get back to Seward, this is for sure where we'll stay.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

This was a great space with two bedrooms, large living and kitchen area and one large bathroom. It was perfect for my husband, daughter, and me. It is very close to downtown, the water, and a grocery store. It was very clean and there were lots of added touches to make our stay more comfortable.

Great location, bright, clean, nice space

  • 5 of 5

Nice place, spacious, clean, comfortable. Note there is a longish set of steps to the door on the second level so not for people with knee problems but we loved it and there were lots of thoughtful little extras like a basket of toiletries if guests forgot something to flesh bread on the counter and a quiche in the fridge. We would definitely stay here again.

I can't begin to explain how great this place is. It is a great location in Seward. It is very nicely furnished, clean, comfortable, and spacious. We booked it last minute and we are so happy it was available, highly recommend it! And there was homemade sourdough bread and quiche waiting for us for breakfast, it was an extra special surprise!
