What a ripoff. We arrived little after 11am on a Saturday with 4 adults and two children, ages 2 and 4. Were seated, received our water and menus, ordered promptly because most know it is difficult to wait with kids these ages. When our order was taken there were very few other customers in the restaurant. We ordered just lunch... More

After a long drive, we thought we'd take a chance and stop to see if there was a room at the Lodge. There must have been a cancellation as there was one cabin left. ($159) It was a perfect little rustic room. We had a plumbing issue just as we were moving in (toilet was running as we came into... More

After a night of Camping at the State Park just up the road, we decided to eat breakfast at the Lodge. Amazing food, tremendous service, and priced very reasonably. I would recomend going in the fall of the year for the beautiful colors of the forest, scenic trails and driving, but i'm sure it's beautiful year round as well.

Pretty good food in the dining room Big grounds Good for hiking Large "main lodge" room to hang out in Now, let's swing to the other side: Pretty spidery entrance to our cabin Outlet near tiny sink - non functioning Coffeemaker - sort of...

Pere Marquette Lodge is a great venue for celebrating birthdays, weddings anniversaries, graduations, and so on. Four generations of my family stayed in cabins and used it to celebrate my 70th birthday last year; and, we returned this year for my 71st with dinner in the lodge, nature hikes and relaxation inside the main hall.

I stayed in a room with two other guys for the "Ride the River's Century" bike ride. I was very impressed with the overall stay at the lodge. The room was excellent as well as the staff. The outdoor activities and opportunities at Pere Marquette are abundant with great hiking, backpacking, and bike riding. Other people at the restaurant mentioned... More

If you have been to any of the lodges in Yellow Stone or National lodges this will certainly remind you of them with one exception. We just about had the place to ourselves. It's a small version of the grand lodges but with a super friendly staff from the receptionist to the maid services everybody was concerned that all our... More

The 10% off at the hotel and restaurant will probably be more useful than the discounts in the winery. I just wish we'd been able to join the club before we had to pay for the room. There are very few other discounts on room rates. Our dinner and breakfast were very good. No big problems with room 221 (2... More

The manager stated: "Maintenance has gone home for the day" that my TV would be fixed the next day. Is this anyway to run... More

We stayed in the lodge for a wedding. Very pretty location. The lodge is rustic and beautiful. Our room was in the historic wing and it was very nice. The bed was comfortable as well. My father stayed in one of the cabins and those were nice as well.
