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 Marenisco

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, 800 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.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this beautiful home. The pictures are spot on. Very clean and definitely a well stocked kitchen. There was plenty of space for the 8 adults and child that were there.

Make sure you prepare your shopping ahead of time! Not that there aren't options around, they are just a drive. We took a few half day trips that were beautiful. Porcupine Mountains - the walk/hike to Lake Superior is a must. We brought kayaks with us, but were only able to use them once or twice as the water gets worked up. However, we did not need to go out in a kayak to see beautiful large eagles - they flew over the house many times a day! Oh, and did I mention the spectacular sunsets?!

The only thing that we could not seem to get to work was the small refrigerator downstairs. Completely my fault to keep forgetting to ask Jason about it because when I asked for recommendations in the area his response was immediate. So, I have no doubt had I asked about this he would have told me how to get it to work. We obviously did not need it!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five absolutely loved the lodge. It’s very well kept, clean and comfortable. The lake was very relaxing. The kids enjoyed jumping off the dock and swimming. We took our boat out several times and saw some great sunsets. It’s close to porcupine mountains, lots of gorgeous waterfalls and a zoo within an hour away! Lake Superior beaches were nearby and were really beautiful. It was a very low key relaxing stay. The home owner was helpful and takes great care of the property. Will definitely visit again.

Great location and great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Love the lodge. It has lots of room for everyone. The location couldn't be better for snowmobiling in the heart of the best trails in the UP.

Another perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth trip to Gogebic Lodge and the place looked as good as ever. Meticulously maintained and lots of room. I have stayed in places that said they could fit ten people but this one really can. Spread out over three floors with four separate bedrooms and a bathroom on each level makes this one of the best layouts I have ever rented. The owner was very helpful and responded to our questions very quickly.

Very easy access to the snowmobile trails and several restaurants close by. Looking forward to 2019!

Try any of a number of restaurants by boat (Root Cellar, Gogebic Lodge, Fishtales, Hoop & Holler).

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.

HUNTING - Access to thousands of acres of commercial and federally owned hunting lands across the street. Great hunting for Whitetail Deer, Bear, Ruffed Grouse, and others.

Numerous local waterfalls including Bond Falls.
