“Mary Ann’s house is wonderful with a breathtaking view! I would definitely stay there (if I did not already have a house in Seward. I also take Belly Dancing classes from her she is an amazing teacher. We not only learn to dance, we learn the history behind the dance and thoroughly enjoy ourselves! If you have ever wanted to make jewelry but did not know where to start you can take a class. I have been to her house to make the type of jewelry I make and she showed me several ‘tricks of the trade’.Mary Ann is a fantastic lady one who will make your life richer by knowing her!”  Judy Nerup, Seward Alaska
