While we are not frequent visitors of state park lodges, tending to stay at hotel chains usually, we understand that Pere Marquette is quite nice for a state park lodge. The lodge is located in a quiet, riverfront location just steps from the state park visitors' center and some trailheads. It has a charming, rustic public area in the lodge... More

Pere Marquette Lodge is a pleasant place! Lovely lobby with gorgeous quilts hanging from the ceiling, wonderful fireplace, comfortable chairs. The rooms are typical motel rooms with WIFI, coffee--the usual. My only critique is the restaurant! The food is less than mediocre...and since good restaurants in nearby Grafton are very few and far between, the Lodge would be doing itself... More

I stayed here one night in December for a girls' weekend. There is not much going on in the town of Grafton in the off-season, but we had a great time at the lodge. We stayed in one of the cabin rooms. It was very spacious and comfortable. Considering that the lodge has been around for a long time, it... More

We stayed on a Sunday night with the Throwback Eagle Package. For around $115 ($99 plus fees and taxes), we had a one-night stay, dinner, breakfast and alcoholic beverages for two. We used to stay at Pere Marquette Lodge every year when our children were young, but it had been several years since we had stayed overnight here. Our room... More

The lodge has lots of character as well as conveniences. It has a pool, hot tub, exercise room, wine room, 2' chess pieces and board near fireplace, great views of river, marked hiking trails and a very nice restaurant. The room was a little chilly with heat on high. Bed and pillows were super comfortable. Large rain shower head. The... More

This February we enjoyed the Eagle Watching Package. For about $100 for two, we had a cabin room and breakfast and dinner. The meal selection was limited and simple but good. Beverages, including one drink in the restaurant or winery, were included. Meal selections included fish, pot roast, pork, salad, etc. Breakfast selections included pancakes, eggs with bacon or sausage,... More

I have been going to Pere Marquette Lodge for years now, First for their Holiday buffets, but for the last 4 or 5 years we have added spending the night up there before the holiday meal. You can not beat the scenery both inside and outside. The staff is nice and helpful. Rooms have been updated so the amenities and... More

Surprising amenities and large comfortable rooms. Great base camp for a weekend of eagle watching in Jan/Feb (one day go north to Hardin and come down to Brussels, the next day go south toward and past Alton (or visa versa). Close enough for a nice getaway, far enough (from STL metro) to unplug and recharge. Staff was very attentive and... More
