Neumann’s Loafers Retreat offers lake front cottages for rent on Long Lake, located near Alpena in northeastern Michigan. This retreat accommodates vacationers looking for a relaxing area to fish and have family time. The Alpena area provides great fishing, annual events, shopping and dining. Come discover why others call Neumann’s Loafers Retreat “A Northern Michigan Vacation Oasis”! We have three cottages on the lake front, as well as our Lower Level unit of the main house – which also faces the lake. A larger cottage, The Loon, sits back from the beach and awards a bit more privacy. All cottages have kitchens, living areas with sleeper sofas, bathrooms with showers, docks with a furnished rowboat and sleep six people. Cottages rent weekly from Saturday to Saturday with a check in time of 2:00pm and a check out time of 10:00am. Weekend or nightly rentals are also available. A $100 dollar deposit is required (due at the time of booking) to hold your reservation. Rates vary depending on dates selection. Call to ask about our first-time fishermen special.
