About Arlene Schneller

We built this lakeside home and make annual updates to add anything it needs. Each year we replace dishware, pots and pans, to ensure a clean and organized kitchen. As owners, we go through the home carefully before a busy season to perform deep cleaning in the spring and fall, just before our busy seasons to ensure the vacation home is always up to our high standards. We've been in the rental business for 30 years and also travel, so we know what guests expect. We enjoy Lake Gogebic with all its scenery, waterfalls, lakes, rivers, the Porkies nearby, the ski area, snowmobile trails and more. We live a half hour away in the UP but also visit Lake Gogebic frequently. My husband is from Milwaukee but I'm a born Yooper gal! We love hiking, boating and nature photography, love sharing our vacation home with others that love it as much as we do. Our son's Northern Lights Photography will also be featured on the walls of our rentals in 2016. Northern Lights are seen in our area more frequently than people know. We travel and stay in other VRBO rentals and have been in the vacation rental business for many years, we know what we like and what our guests expect.

Arlene Schneller purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Arlene Schneller chose Lake Gogebic

Our dream was to own a place on the lake, now we have two rentals on Lake Gogebic, Mallard Cove & Teal Wing plus our own private lake escape. We initially bought the vacation homes as investments for our children's college education, but now as new grandparents with another generation of lake lovers, we find ourselves enjoying the lake even more with family and friends. We kayak, boat, have campfires, fish, duck hunt, snowmobile, hike up to Alligator Eye, tour numerous waterfalls, visit our lake neighbors and the Porcupine Mountains...it's all such a wonderful setting. Perfect for photography too! We enjoy watching the northern lights, starry nights and bald eagles. The lake holds many great memories to share.

What makes this cabin unique

Lake Gogebic is the largest lake in the Michigan's Upper Peninsula, our guests love it. There's never a crowded feel because the lake is so big! We love hearing loons and its so relaxing at the lake. There's always something to go and see if you want to keep busy, plenty of outdoor attractions with so many amazing places within one million acres of Ottawa National Forest. It's centrally located to all the places we enjoy. We are so fortunate to live where we play! If it rains or you want a nice dinner or looking for a few places to explore, we update our cottage three ring binder information each year and provide updates on new places in the area as well as events. We know you'll have a great time in Michigan's Western Upper Peninsula.

Just as Expected.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this beautiful lodge overlooking Lake Gogebic. The cabin was just as described and very accommodating. We would definetely recommend this to anyone interested in visiting the UP.

Porcupine Mountains are just 25 minutes away!!

Thanks again!

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

We spent the week at Mallard Cove and have to admit for the money we spent on the place we were very disappointed. One of the biggest was the shore station for the boat (which was one of the reasons we picked this rental) once we got the boat on the shore station it was very difficult to get out onto the dock. It was over three feet from the dock. I have pictures if you need. The downstairs was damp, musty, had visible mold on walls and spiders. There is no way any of us would have slept down there. We landed the boat daily (because of the unsafe jump from the boat to the dock). I had to back in the driveway off of hwy 64 or back out on to hwy 64 ,because there was no way to turn around in the driveway. No instructions for TV (4 remotes , figure it out !), garbage, whether you recycle? Left 1 day early (frustrated) really feel like we should get refunded some money. I know of several rentals on Lake Gogebic for a lot less money and will be returning to those places.

Owner's Response: We do our very best to maintain our properties. We have checklists and experienced staff that live on the lake to ensure guests are happy and that any problem is taken care of quickly. We received one call from this guest and they updated us on something that they took care of themselves. Sorry we were not informed of anything further during that call. We have implemented a follow up plan since then. Many guests enjoy our lake homes year after year, we continue to strive for referrals and repeat guests as our main goal.

A beautiful place to vacation with family.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home after spending a week at this rental. Our two sons and family joined my husband and I here. We loved it. Cool morning breezes, coffee on the deck in the morning. Lake views are beautiful from the deck to the dock. Nice yard space for dogs and children. Trees along side of lawn for privacy. Scott was great about coming and checking and taking care of a small bee problem and making sure we were all fine. Friendly folks to rent from. The cottage was spacious and the kitchen was small but had every utensil a person would need for cooking. Close enough to stores, but far enough away from the rush and hubbub of every day life. Very peaceful and restful. We loved our stay. Several boat rental places within a few miles of cottage, several places to go out to eat if you want to and plenty of places to hike and explore.

Mallard Cove, Memorial weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at Mallard Cove. 4 couples with 3 fishing boats. Plenty of room for our trailers and trucks. Easy access to boat launch and bait shop. Walking distance to restaurant. Cottage very clean, well equipped, great deck, large sauna and reasonably priced. Owner/property management very friendly and accommodating. We also enjoyed our mountain bike rides between fishing! Looking forward to coming back.

Nice place to stay if your fisherman. We were ice fishing with six guys in our group. Plenty of room for us all. Great access down to the water with all of your gear.
