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 Seward

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.

Great Property and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The quiche Lori made for us was fantastic and the peasant bread was also very very good. The place was clean and comfortable and perfect with the two bedrooms and a living room for all of us to lounge together.

Very pleasant stay at Seward. Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I, three of us, stayed at Lori's home for one night and we very much enjoyed it! It is quiet, spacious, clean, and cozy. It feels home and that's exactly what is needed on a trip! Lori is super sweet with home-made quiche and juice prepared in the fridge for us. Definitely recommend this place to stay when you visit Seward!

Wonderful place to stay in Seward.

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom private wing of the Draper's home was very comfortable. The beds were comfortable and bedrooms were well appointed. A large bathroom with double sinks and shower had the most luxurious towels ever! The living/dining area was great. It included a gas "stove" to heat the room! Lori provided a delicious quiche, English muffins, homemade raspberry jam, juice, tea, coffee and more. A full size refrigerator and microwave were available (the only thing missing was a cooktop). We loved our stay.

Private, spotless and roomy

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific place to stay in Seward. Though it's not right in the heart of downtown, or on the water, it's close and very private. It's larger than we thought it would be, very clean, and we were surprised to find a home made quiche and juice in the refrigerator. You have a private entrance - but it's up a flight of stairs. We loved it and would recommend it highly.

Nice Space

  • 5 of 5

This is a great find, perfect for 2 couples.

The entrance is separate from the main house, had a large bathroom, and good sized living space with a sectional couch. There were 4 of us and we were plenty comfortable. Lori and Cliff left us a quiche and some other items for breakfast in the fridge. It was such a pleasant surprise and the quiche and jam were delicious! I highly recommend staying here. The space is very clean, private enough, and fantastic hospitality!
