My husband and I went for an overnight trip. Great hiking, nice lounge with local wines. Great lobby / socializing area and other amenities such as gift shop, restaurant, games. Good restaurants and shops nearby in Grafton, IL as well. Rooms were nice size and staff very friendly.

Pere Marquette is truly beautiful any time of year and this lodge is just gorgeous! We had a wonderful time enjoying the indoor pool, hiking the nearby trails, renting bikes from the lodge and eating in the very nice restaurant!

We wanted to be unplugged and have family time and that is what we got! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. It may be an older hotel, but don't let that stop you from staying here. It was a great place for family bonding time and to be outdoors!!

We chose Pere Marquette Lodge for Easter brunch this year and it was the best choice we could have made. We did not have a reservation, yet we were able to be seated almost immediately (lucky). The buffet was in their banquet room and was quite the spread. Their cold station had fruits and salads and shrimp and cheeses and...

Beautiful lodge and well maintained. Restaurant was so convenient and very good. We flew in to St. Louis and drove up the Great River Road. Would stay there again but have no reason to come back this way.

Since it was my birthday week and Pierre Marquette had a wonderful package going on we drove there. Check in was easy, and our cabin was the best. Their flowering trees were beautifully blooming ,and the bumblebees were buzzing. I totally believe they have the best housekeeping staff anywhere to be found. Thea nap I took was so comfortable and...

The staff was nice and the room was clean. I found the food to be mediocre. The vegetables at dinner were cold. Breakfast buffet was just okay. If you are okay with a lot of small children running everywhere, and I do mean everywhere, then this may not be the place for you. Lot's of very loud families who have...
