About Montgomery Bay Lodge

Our family is originally from Lower Michigan, but relocated to the Milwaukee area a few years ago making the western Upper Peninsula a viable option for our recreational pursuits.

Montgomery Bay Lodge purchased this house in 2012

Why Montgomery Bay Lodge chose Lake Gogebic

We fell in love with this property because of the privacy and tranquility it provides, its perfect location, and the abundance of natural beauty and wildlife. It is rare to visit without seeing 2-3 Bald Eagles fishing our bay!

What makes this house unique

Montgomery Bay Lodge has the perfect location: sunset views, a protected bay, 400 ft of private frontage, direct access to snowmobile / ATV trails, and within a mile of gas and a public boat launch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for a great week at your home! What a great way for our "extended" family to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. We found the home had plenty of space for our group of 10 and something for everyone. The guys had fun hunting in the local area, playing cards & watching football in the lower level. The wives really enjoyed the views over the lake, cooking Thanksgiving Dinner in the gourmet kitchen, and taking day trips to Boulder Junction for the Winter Festival and shopping.

I loved the house and how roomy it was for a family of four and a family of six.

  • 5 of 5

The home had everything you need when renting a vacation property: linens, towels, some supplies, and kitchenware. It is nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. Everyone had room to spread out. The kids especially liked their own basement area which included their own bathroom. The shore line is rocky so make sure you take water shoes. The windows and view are awesome but it can get a little hot inside but knowing this we brought our own fans which when added to the fans the property provided, kept the temperature inside comfortable. Some of the towels were a little musty smelling but nothing that a little bleach couldn't fix. We loved staying here and would definitely recommend it to anyone who asks. Thank you for sharing your up north home with us!

Great house, very private, great swimming and sunsets on the dock

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 10 had a great week at Montgomery Bay lodge. The house is well appointed and was a great fit for our group.

We swam, boated, water skied, and tubed on the Lake. We brought ATV's and did a trip to Bond Falls. The Root Cellar is just up the road and has a great fish fry. All in all a great week in the U. P. We'll be back in Winter for snowmobiling.

The owner was available by phone and email and very accommodating for any questions we had.

Thanks again for s great trip.

Excellent accommodations, well maintained property, very clean and ready for our vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 adult brothers who really enjoy snowmobiling together, and we found Montgomery Bay Lodge to be a perfect fit for this event. Its location on Lake Gogebic provided access to hundreds of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, Porcupine Mountain, Lake in the Clouds, as well as several restaurants & bars, gas stations etc. which made it ideal for a winter vacation. The house is a wonderful place to stay, with its 4 generous bedrooms and spacious kitchen and living area. The winter sunset view is awesome!

We liked it so much, that we are considering Montgomery Bay as a destination to bring our respective families for a summer vacation stay as well. Our thanks to Jason & Julie for sharing their vacation paradise witjh us!

Very Nice Place to Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience staying in this lodge. It was very clean & spacious with a great view of the lake! The king size bed was very comfortable upstairs. It had great lake access for snowmobiling. It was well lit up at night and we could find it very easy driving across the lake. The owners were super nice and accommodating. We would definitely recommend it to others and rent this lodge again.
