Clutter's Cottages

Clutter's Cottages settled in Brother's Bay on the shores of Long Lake, Alpena, MI

Clutter's Cottages are 2 vintage log cottages on the shore of Long Lake in Alpena, MI. Step back in time with the modern conveniences of today. The cottages each sleep 4 adults with 2 bedrooms and 2 double beds. They are furnished with modern kitchen and appliances and each have a 1/2 bath. There is a two room shower house located behind the cottages one for each cottage. We have hammocks, fire pits, picnic tables, sandy beach, boat docks, and everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Our rental season is from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Art in the Loft

Watch as a community came together and created a landmark for our town...

Featuring the Community Mural Project Trailer... a story years in the making about an art project intended to beautify our town, but instead brought our community closer together through the act of creating.

Join us on July 20th for our first ever "Fishapalooza": A Celebration of the Mural... but more importantly a celebration of our Community!

Full Mural documentary coming July 2019!
A huge THANK YOU for the Video production by Steve Jakubcin

It's been a crazy but good Summer at Clutter's Cottages. We have moved to Alpena from WV and are trying to figure out where to put everything. We have some work to do, but the cottages are all ready for their long winter nap. Have a wonderful Fall, Winter, and Spring and we will see you next Summer
