“Very homely cottage”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Our extended family of 4 adults and 3 children stayed at this lovely homely cottage for three nights. The location is superb being right on the beach front with views to die for. The cottage is equipped with everything imaginable for a relaxing holiday. As we had travelled from New Zealand with the bare minimum of luggage it was a godsend to stay here as the kitchen was fully equipped - herbs, spices, oils and all manner of condiments were available for our use so we only needed to buy the big items from the supermarket to cook our own meals. The bedrooms were cosy and well stocked with linen and towels. Books, toys, games were all there for us to use.
Great fishing a little further down the beach landed us some fat salmon. Would also recommend going out on a charter fishing trip.
Many thanks to Sue for her helpful tips and having such a great place to share.

“Sue's Slice of Heaven”
Reviewed 16 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

people found this review helpful

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!
