“Sue's Slice of Heaven”

We just returned from our 6th trip to Alaska, and our 3rd stop at "Sue's Place". For us, it is simply the best place in the Seward area to stay. Her charming cottage is actually past Seward and out on Lowell Point, which is a good thing to us. Seward is a neat little town, but it can get overrun by cruise ship folks. So, it can be a bit crowded by people "on a schedule". Lowell Point, however, is completely laid back, mainly because there is not much there besides vacation houses, campgrounds, a state park, and Miller's Landing (for charter fishing, kayaking, etc...).

Plopped right on the beach of Resurrection Bay, pictures can't even convey the ever-changing view of different colors bouncing off the water and mountains. Porpoises, sea otters, bald eagles, and sea lions are frequent visitors, and all you need to do is sit and wait, inside or out.

The cottage is a "cottage", with age and personality. We love the homey feel and the warm fireplace, but you'll be disappointed if you're expecting The Ritz. Of course, you probably wouldn't be visiting Seward/Lowell Point if that was your expectation!

Thank you, Sue, for allowing my family to share your slice of heaven!
