The Parker House

About Us

The Parker House, a delightful piece of history, was originally constructed by James and Mildred Parker in the mid to late 1940s. Since those early days, it has seen several transitions, and we are proud to be the fourth owners of The Parker House. Our journey with this beloved property began on November 27, 2017.

Over the years, we've poured our hearts into restoring and enhancing this gem. Every cabin and the restaurant building have undergone extensive renovations, breathing new life into their vintage charm. Today, we call this picturesque retreat our home, residing in the house nestled by the serene lakeside.

Our commitment to providing exceptional experiences extends to our culinary offerings. We serve delectable breakfast and lunch dishes throughout our operating hours, and on Monday evenings, we invite you to savor our special dinner menu from 4:30 to 8:00 PM.

With a total of 10 rental units at your disposal, we offer a range of accommodation options to suit your needs. Whether you're seeking a weekend escape, a week-long retreat, or a month-long respite, we have the perfect cottage for you.

Join us at The Parker House, where history meets hospitality, and create lasting memories amidst the scenic beauty of Alpena next to Long Lake. Embrace all four seasons of adventure and make us your destination for special events, parties, and reunions, with our pavilion ready to host your gatherings.
