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.

I needed a place to stay for 9 days while visiting relatives in Seward. This was a perfect place with easy access to all Seward activities, very quiet and comfortable like being at home, and the freshly baked bread was fabulous. I would definitely stay here again!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place. It was like a home away from home. A wonderful loaf of bread with strawberry and rubar jam was waiting for us to eat. There was also a great tasting quiche in the refrigerator. Would stay again.

We loved this property! It was comfortable, convenient and we felt so welcomed by the hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We were surprised that this property was not right downtown when we first arrived however found it to be so welcoming and convenient to all locations. As we had to be at Aurora charters the next morning at 6am this property provided easy access. The hosts go out of their way to welcome guests by providing some essentials in the refrigerator along with coffee and tea. The loaf of homemade bread was absolutely delicious along with the jam and the quiche was perfect for an early morning breakfast. The furniture and beds were comfortable and I really appreciated that the property was heated just right and we never had to figure out how to regulate room temperature. We had a great stay! Loved the property that is kept immaculately clean and would definitely book this property again for our next stay in Seward. Thanks so much to the hosts!

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.
