About the Property

Year Round Vacation rental on Lake Gogebic and snowmobile trail.

Almost a Castle on Lake Gogebic L.L.C. is a large, newer lake home on beautiful Lake Gogebic, a 13,000+ acre lake, famous for Walleye and Perch fishing. It is open year round and is right on the snowmobile trail. UTV and ATV riders use the Forest service road system which directly connects to the ATV trail system. That road system enters the woods directly across the road from our property. You will feel like a king and queen in this very large lake front home with over 4,400 sq ft of combined living space on the main floor and second floor. With 5 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, 3.5 bathrooms, fireplace, and 300 ft. of shoreline, you will get the vacation you want instead of being packed into a small cabin. In the winter we close off the bathroom in the master bedroom to prevent the water pipes from freezing. It is available the rest of the year.
If it is starting to feel expensive, look at our rates and you will see it costs about the same as most places half it's size. Many guests split the cost with another family. We set a limit of 12 people but make exceptions on occasion if there are young kids. The absolute maximum number of people is 13, but on occasion we approve up to 15 if there are 5 or more young kids. The rates posted are for up to 10 people. Additional guests beyond the first 10, costs $30 per person per night.


Our location has good wind protection because we are on the West Shoreline and behind a large point sticking out into the lake. This is an important feature on a large lake because the East Shoreline can have really large waves making it hard to go boating. Our shoreline (the West shoreline) is often calm even when the East shoreline has large waves.

Call us at: 608-575-1343

Come see this area's great waterfalls and beaches, ride ATV's, snowmobile, hike, swim or fish. Catch Walleye's right from our pier or shoreline and then have a campfire while overlooking the lake.

Bedrooms: The master bedroom is enormous and overlooks the lake. It is approximately 25 feet wide by 30 feet long. There is another bedroom that overlooks the lake that is about 25 feet long by 20 feet wide. Both of these rooms have a king size bed and at least one twin bed in case one of your kids needs to be near you. Two other bedrooms are easily large enough to have a queen bed and at least one additional twin bed. There are 4 bedrooms upstairs and 1 bedroom downstairs. The downstairs bedroom has two twin beds and it's own bathroom.

There is a large living room upstairs, (33' x 14') that we call the Eagles Nest because it has a birds eye view of the lake. It has lots of large windows and a great view of the lake. On the main floor there is also a living room attached to the kitchen and dining room with a fireplace all overlooking the lake. Together they make a great central place for people to eat, hang around, play cards etc. On the main floor there is also a rec room with air hockey, and a basketball game, and TV all overlooking the lake. There is a separate room just for playing ping pong upstairs. The upstairs living room and the rec room have satellite TV's. You will appreciate having multiple living rooms on cold or rainy days so kids have a place to call their own.

Location: It is located about 15 miles North of the Wisconsin border, North of Presque Isle, WI., and about 30 minutes West of the Cisco Chain of lakes near Watersmeet Michigan. Minocqua and Eagle River are both about 45 miles away. This means less boat traffic, more privacy, more fish and a better price for you. We are directly on the snowmobile trail and this area averages over 250 inches of snow. That's is over 21 feet of snow a year. All that water helps keep this lake full even in dry years.

Fishing on Lake Gogebic: Fishing magazines frequently state that some of the Midwest's best perch and walleye fishing is on Lake Gogebic. Every gas station, restaurant, and business in the area has lots of jumbo perch fish mounts on their walls, with some perch over 2 lbs. There are a lot of 11'- 14' perch in this lake. This is one of the best Walleye fishing lakes in the Midwest. There are a lot of 16-22' Walleyes in this lake. The Michigan DNR approved a lower size length for 2016. It appears that 2 Walleyes can be 13" or larger, and the rest of a person's daily limit must be 15". There are too many13"-14" Walleye's in this lake and they want to reduce the number of fish in that size range. Please read the MI DNR's fishing regulations to be sure what the new rules are. Catch them from our pier or in one of the boats we provide at no cost. There are also some trophy Northern Pike and some very nice bass in the lake.

Boat Landings: There is a free public boat landing 150-200 yards away. There is also a state and a county public boat landing that can be used provided you have the appropriate sticker. The lake is an all sports lake so you can use canoes, kayaks, sailboats, jet ski's and motorized boats.

Snowmobile and ATV Trails: Want to ride your snowmobile? We are directly on the trail so you won't have to trailer up once here. Ride to Lake Superior which is about 35-40 miles north. The trail system goes for many miles in all directions. Ride on the lake. Once frozen properly this lake becomes a giant 18 mile long adventure land. You can rent sleds and ATV's from several places near our cabin. We have plenty of parking space for all your toys and have a detached garage with openings at either end so you can drive right through it without having to turn your sled around. We and many others use the small forestry road across the street to access the official ATV trail system. Most township roads, and county roads are fair game to ride on provided you follow the rules and drive responsibly. Get an ATV map to make sure you are legal and don't get lost in this vast area of wilderness.

Downhill and Cross Country Skiing: Downhill ski on some of the best skiing east of the Tetons while only driving 30-40 minutes to ski resorts like Indianhead, BlackJack, Big Powderhorn, Norway Mtn, Pine Mtn, Porcupine Mtn. State Park, (downhill and cross country), Whitecap Mountain, and Mount Zion. Did you know that this area's average annual snowfall is approx. 250'. There are several places to cross county ski. Check the Lake Gogebic Chamber of Commerce's web site for active cross country trails. We like to cross country ski down to the Lake Gogebic State Park or the County Park. This stretch has lots of undeveloped shoreline.

Waterfalls,Hiking trails, and Mountain Biking: The U.P. is filled with waterfalls. Some of the best ones are 30-60 minutes drive from this cabin. Hike along the Lake Superior shoreline which is filled with beautiful quartz rocks polished smooth to skip on the water. Agates and other pretty rocks are hidden treasures for you and your kids to find. We really enjoy going to Lake of the Clouds which is in the first range of mountains from the shoreline of Lake Superior. That park has many miles of hiking trails with some leading deep into wilderness and others requiring little effort to overlook the Porcupine Mountains and Beautiful Lake Of The Clouds. Many people come to the area just to see the waterfalls. From Saxon Harbor North along the Lake Superior shoreline, there are many waterfalls to visit. Most waterfalls have trails, bridges and other improvements to help people view them. These tend to be great hikes for kids because most are approximately a 1-3 miles long and they have lots of fun walkways, bridges, terraces etc. for kids to run around on. Our regular website has lots of pictures of waterfalls in the area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife and I have owned vacation rental properties since 2001 and have enjoyed renting our properties to many families. We love being up North with our two boys. Over the years we have learned what families need and want for a vacation rental and we try hard to provide not only an exceptional place to stay but things for the entire family to do while there.

Why the Owner Chose Marenisco, MI, USA:
Compare this property to most others and you will see it has bigger rooms, more space, a great view all at a price similar to what people pay for 2-3 bedroom vacation rentals in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Large bedrooms and lots of space. Have you ever slept in a bedroom that measures more than 25 feet by 30 feet? We have two bedrooms that are about this size and two more that are also extra large. The smallest bedroom is still large. There are two living rooms and a rec. room with a basketball game, air hockey, and a ping pong table in a separate room. There is something to do for everyone right here at our place. Our place can have up to 15 people.
