The Lodge's Great Room & view of the IL R. from the patio are beautiful. Ditto the surrounding area. Staff is great. Rooms are large & comfortable. However, the rooms need small refrigerators and perhaps microwaves. Calling to make reservations is impossible. The phone system cuts out & extension nos. cannot be heard. For 2 yrs. I' was told a new phone system was coming. Our group of 24 had problems with the restaurant & meal orders & the requirement that"no individual checks" could be issued for a group our size. My TV didn't work although the maintenance man quickly figured out that the problem was in a non-working plug-in, making me wonder if this is a common problem in the rooms. My bedside lamp could not be turned on. And I was in the new wing!

Great family get away at beautiful Pere Marquette Park Lodge. Special thanks to Melissa,Sabrina and Darlene. They helped make our family stay very enjoyable.
Kids loved the large indoor pool. Food and service at the lodge restaurant was outstanding. Looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Get rooms close to pool

We spent two nights here in February (37th wedding anniversary). The lodge is a lovely space, a 1930s CCC project that has been updated and very well-preserved. There is a range of lodging options, and we chose a king room with river view. Ended up on first floor facing river, but had to look over or around the air handling units hidden behind stone walls--I would ask for 2d floor room next time to avoid this. Room comfortable and large, with foldout couch if we'd had another person along. Very quiet overall. The only room issue was lighting--bring your own bulbs if you want to read--it was dark! Also, the unsecured free wifi worked OK, but because it was unsecured, I could not send work-related emails through my employer website. I could only receive them. Had to use phone to send. We ate all our meals at the restaurant, which was reasonably priced and adequate. Do not expect gourmet food, but solid choices, overall well-prepared. The buffet breakfast on Saturday was the best deal--fruit and lots of basic choices for only $7.95 each, though one could also order from the extensive menu. The only thing about dinner I did not like was the strip steak--tough piece of meat. We enjoyed our stay there--hiked and slept a lot, which was exactly what we needed after and before hectic weeks at work. Recommended for couples in particular, though it is certainly good for families with children--nice pool, lots to do outside, extremely pretty setting, nice people.

Room Tip: I would ask for 2d floor room if you want river view.

As always Pere Marquette Lodge is the place we go when we want rest, quiet, great food, wonderful atmosphere. We have been staying at the lodge for the past 20 years and love to meet friends there too. Close to the river and towns with great antiquing.

We stayed in one of the cabins which was very spacious,and comfortable. From the moment we arrived to the min we left it was so relaxing!
The food was good too. Ive always wanted to stay overnight here, and now can cross this off my bucket list !

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the cabins which was a short walk to the lodge,but very private.
