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.

  • 5 of 5

very well set up the house is more then anyone could expect . the Fishing was grate and the locals are out going . you would want to bring things to cook for meals as most restaurant's around the lake after 1st September do not stay stock a lot of things on menu's they are out off. But with this log home and on lake side you want to eat at there and enjoy the lake

God's country

My wife, three adult children and their spouses and mother and father in law had a great week at Montgomery Bay Lodge. The place was exactly as described. It is an absolutely beautiful setting on the shores of Lake Gogebic. The home is beautiful and more than met the needs of our family. Having the shore station was great! I was able to get my fishing fix in during the morning hours while everyone was still sleeping and then enjoy the lake later in the day without having to load and unload the trailer. We had great evenings around the fire pit and then board games later in the house. The sunsets were amazing. We went out to eat locally at two different places and they were both great. Most of the evenings we spent making home cooked meals in the fully supplied kitchen.

I would recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect size and location for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with all the comforts needed for our vacation. Walk out side the back door to fish or hop in your side by side to explore the trails! It was an awesome stay and would highly recommend to anyone looking for the perfect secluded location with endless activities for the outdoor enthusiasts. Many thanks to Jason; owner, for making our stay so enjoyable! We hope to visit agin.

Very clean, super nice place!

  • 5 of 5

There was 11 of us staying at the lodge, and there was plenty of room for all of us. We brought our boat. The launch was just down the road. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was stocked with all the things we needed. The Only minor issue was ICE. The ice machine was not working and all the ice cube trays were cracked. The mini fridge down stairs was broke as well. The closest store for ice was a long drive!!! We did a lot of hiking and saw all the beautiful waterfalls. Amazing! Jason the owner was very helpful. We contacted him a few times. Overall this house is a great find! None of us wanted to leave. It's very quiet, and the deck wrapped around three sides of the house. There is always plenty of sun or shade. We would totally recommend this place for your next vacation. We would love to go back again next year!

It was beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

There was 10 of us and the place was definitely big enough and very comfortable. It was stocked with everything you need and it was very clean. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful area to vacation. We fished off the dock and rented a boat nearby for the week. We spent a few days site seeing in the area as well.

I would stay at this house again!

Beautiful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our first family vacation with adult children and grandchildren. Perfect private location. Beautiful large house. Clean, well stocked with essentials. Its home away from home. We will definitely be going back to fish and hopefully do a snowmobile family trip too.

SNOWMOBILE / ATV: Access to marked snowmobile (Trail 13) & ATV trails at the end of the driveway or via the lake. Premium gas available nearby at The Root Cellar.
