The Lake Gogebic Motel was purchased by Casey Yesney on June of 2013 at the age of 22. Casey Yesney was born and raised in Bergland, Michigan and knows the area very well. Casey purchased the Lake Gogebic Motel when he moved back home from North Dakota, after working out there in the oil fields for 3 years. Casey was a mechanic and ran heavy equipment during his time working in the oil fields. After 3 years in North Dakota he decided that he wanted to be home close to family and friends, so he decided to become an entrepreneur. Casey decided back in 2014 to expand and start a snowmobile rental business, now known as Lake Gogebic Sled Rentals right next to the motel. Casey and Makenzie met back in high school after Makenzie moved to Bergland from Winneconne, WI. Makenzie and her parents moved to Bergland back in 2008 when her parents bought a local resort. In 2016, Makenzie and Casey started dating and Makenzie has helped Casey run the motel and sled rental business. Makenzie continues to move forward with Casey in all the business adventures. Casey doesn't just stop at being a motel and rental business owner, he is also a volunteer firefighter and helps his brother on excavating jobs. Recently in the summer of 2020, Casey and Makenzie made the move to take over Casey's fathers towing business. They are alway willing to help any business and the towns people with any project that takes place around town. When Casey and Makenzie aren't working they can be found outside on some kind of adventure. They love going for motorcycle rides, camping, boating, snowmobiling, and hitting the trails on the side by sides with friends. They have been able to meet so many amazing people over the years of owning the motel.
