The town of Montague is located along the Heritage Montague River in what used to be known as Township Lots 52 and 59. It lies approximately six miles upstream from Cardigan Bay, allowing for easy access by water to the Northumberland Strait and the Atlantic Ocean. The river bisects the town from North to South, providing excellent small port access for transport, fishing and recreation, as well as enhancing the town's scenic beauty.

Kings County is the eastern most county of Prince Edward Island, and Montague lies considerably south of the main body of the Province. Its geographic position is in close proximity to the provincial capital, Charlottetown, and various important centres in Kings County has contributed strongly to its growth and development. The town is divided almost evenly by highway route #4, which runs in a north-south direction, linking it to many of the outlying communities.

The surrounding area is also picturesque, and has been termed the "Hills and Harbours" area by the Province's tourist authority. It is characterized by rolling countryside, peaceful rivers, great beaches and vibrant colours: the pristine white of winter snow, the brilliant violet of the Lupines that line the roadways in spring, the green of the summer grass and fields, and the many hues in the autumn leaves. Our back roads maintain the same colour throughout the year - the famous rich red which is characteristic of the Island. Much of the land is used for agricultural purposes, though there is a substantial amount of woodland, allowing for hiking, camping and bird- watching.
