Making & Capturing Memories at Mountain's New Event Venue

A new event venue, designed with the purpose of making and capturing memories, opened Sept. 1 in Mountain. Mountain Memories, 13073 Highway 32/64 in Mountain, offers space for up to 65 guests to gather for bridal showers, birthday parties, holiday gatherings, and other special events. Owners Roger and Cheryl Lambert renovated a bar and restaurant, Tracy’s Place, into a venue for private gatherings and corporate events. They look forward to hosting a variety of family and community gatherings, providing a welcoming atmosphere and friendly customer service.

“We both love to talk to people. We like meeting new people and getting to know them,” Roger said.

But Mountain Memories isn’t your typical event space. With four bedrooms, three-stall shower room, bathrooms, and a full kitchen, Mountain Memories offers “friendship community” sleeping arrangements for up to 18 overnight guests. The handicapped-accessible facility has a three queen beds and a dozen twin beds. The Lamberts provide bedding and towels for visitors.

Because of its large gathering space and overnight accommodations, Mountain Memories is a perfect setting for groups of 18 guests to gather for scrapbooking, quilting, or enjoying another shared hobby. An avid scrapbooker for nearly 20 years, Cheryl established Mountain Memories as a place where she can share her passion with others. Those who enjoy scrapbooking are invited to attend Mountain Memories’ scrapbooking weekends.

“We’d like to invite people to join in,” Roger said. “The scrapbookers just sit around and have a great time.”

Roger prefers snowmobiling to scrapbooking and is thrilled to have the ATV/UTV/snowmobile trail right outside the front door. Oconto County has over 450 miles of scenic trails to enjoy.
Before turning their attention to launching Mountain Memories, the Lamberts owned rental properties for 15 years. Cheryl is employed as plant manager at Midwest Textile in Suamico, and Roger is retired from a career in industrial HVAC. Because of Roger’s professional background, Mountain Memories incorporates smart technology that’s programmable and responsive to users’ needs.

Roger and Cheryl, of Suamico, have been visiting Northern Oconto County for years, and they’re anxious to share their love of the Northwoods with others.

“We encourage people to come up here and stay here. We love the area,” Roger said. To book an event or multi-day stay at Mountain Memories, go to For more information, visit Mountain Memories’ Facebook page.
