About John or Christine Luxton

We are a married couple who gave up the stress of city living for the comfort and solace of the Northwoods. We spend our time fishing and boating on our pontoon boat (The Pugtoon) with our three pugs. When life gets too stressful, we enjoy our time on the back deck with the waves of Lake Gogebic gently rolling onto the shore. There is nothing a little nature can't make better.

John or Christine Luxton purchased this house in 2013

Why John or Christine Luxton chose Marenisco

We have been vacationing on Lake Gogebic for over 20 years. Every vacation we would rent a cabin to get our nature fix. We spent a lot of time boating around the lake fantasizing about living up there someday. We started spending more and more time in the UP so In 2013 we purchased our own piece of heaven, Whitecap Shores. The plan was to use this as our vacation home until we retired. We started spending as much time as we could on Lake Gogebic and realized that we were always sad when we left to go back to our lives in Madison. In 2016 we took a leap of faith. We were not going to wait for retirement to start living our dream, so we moved to Lake Gogebic permanently. We do not want to part with Whitecap Shores, as we really love the house. We opened it up in 2016 as a vacation rental, so that we can share this amazing piece of heaven with others looking for the wonderful experience that is the UP of Michigan.

What makes this house unique

Clean and equipped with everything you need. Open floor plan with a lake view from everywhere.

Very Nice Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Not fancy, but very clean and comfortable. We’ve stayed at 2 motels in the area last fall and while they were clean, they also had threadbare blankets and a variety of non-functioning items. Not here - everything was in good order and nice. We appreciated the open floor plan, making the cabin seem much bigger, and all the nice windows. Did not need to communicate with the owners at all since the whole process was so smooth and easy.

Snowmobiling heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit. It had great access to the snowmobiling trail. Loved all the windows that provided a view of the lake. It was bitter cold outside, so we really appreciated the fire place, jetted bath tub, and heated blankets on the beds. Thanks for a relaxing holiday visit!

Mesmerizing view of Lake Gogebic

  • 5 of 5

Great communication with Owner's, no problems at all. Amazing views out several windows in the home. The home was equipped with everything needed, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Nearby we ate at JW's BBQ it was excellent, and also had a great fish fry at Fishtales. We ventured out to see Porcupine Mountain State Park and had some breathtaking sights. We also went on the Black River Scenic Byway and viewed the waterfalls....gorgeous! We certainly would recommend this home as a place to stay. Thanks for a great weekend

Great Lake House and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed out this house from 10/11/17 thru 10/14/17 and had a great time. The house was perfect, very comfortable and had everything we needed. My buddies and i go to this area every year on a grouse hunting trip. We have stayed in resort cabins for the last 5 years. This is our first time we renting a house and it was great. John & Chris are great owner and went out of their way to make our experience great.

We are "Raving Fans" of White Cap Shores and we will be back next year.

Thank you John & Chris for let us stay at your wonderful house,
