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.

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!

Snowmobile Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been returning to Montgomery Bay Lodge for several years now because of the great accommodations and fantastic snowmobile conditions we have had consistently since finding this place. The property was again meticulously clean with all the comforts of home. The location is right off of the Gogebic snowmobile trail system making it a great place to start and end a great day of riding. Also, we find the little towns, restaurants and bars we visit to be full of character and incredibly welcoming to us. We recommend Dutch's in Marinesco and JW's in Bergland to name a few. Our snowmobile rental from Timberline Sports was easy to arrange online so the trip is always something we look forward to throughout the year. We have always returned to this location for snowmobiling but there are many other options including ice fishing, downhill skiing and cross country skiing in the winter. If you are looking for a beautiful lakefront property for any season, I believe the Montgomery Bay Lodge is one property that will exceed your expectations!

Excellent. As usual.

  • 5 of 5

I stay here two or three times a year. The home is perfect for me, my family and friends. It’s right on the lake and has easy access to trails. Sadly this year (2018), the snowmobile trail just east of the house’s driveway (Trail 13S) is closed going north due to logging. A minor inconvenience. But to the south it’s open. The owner can’t control that. But as usual, the lake is frozen and can get you anywhere trail access wise. You literally drive right into the lake with your sled from the houses property. Awesome.

The house easily sleeps 8 couples and the loft, finished basement, kitchen, dining, and living room are wonderful. There isn’t any Wi-Fi, so unless your phone has coverage (Verizon worked great, Sprint not so much), you will be off the grid. However the cable TV worked great. The driveway was able to easily accommodate my SUV and trailer. I’ve been there with three trailers and it was big enough to handle it.

The beds are comfortable. The linens are nice. The home is toasty warm. So warm, we had to turn down the thermostat in Janauary. The owner is accommodating and obviously cares about the guests by resolving any issues promptly. The flatware, glasses and dishes are excellent. There is a washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, refrigerator and stove. All worked great. I will be staying there again. Many times.

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.
