I called and made a reservation (They took my Credit Card), then drove there and they couldn't find it in their systems. They had no rooms available and basically told me I was out of luck. Where are we supposed to get a room late on a Saturday night? This was after driving an hour and a half to get... More

We spend two nights at the Pere Marquette Lodge this weekend. I was attending Ukin' in the Woods, an informal get-together of players that happens each summer at various locations around the midwest. The ukers were at the Potawatomie Campground, but my wife and I chose to stay in the lodge. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The whole... More

Loved it. Loved the ambiance, history and old with new. The lodge common area is so well done and beautiful. The room was spotless. The staff were sweet and helpful. The food and atmosphere was excellent. The only suggestion I have for the lodge is, as a marketing and traveling person, .....the gift shop needs "pere Marquette" labeled items. There... More

While hiking the trails in the state park we were delighted to see a number of families with small children. Guess they loved the challenges, because the ones we took were definitely moderate due to quick elevation changes. Nice view at McAdams Peak, 900 feet, of Stump Lake. After hiking we enjoyed lunch at the Lodge-- delicious salads with fresh... More

Our family had a wonderful getaway at Pere Marquette. We stayed in a quiet cabin. The lodge has such nice touches such as chairs and a fire pit for evening entertainment. The rain changed our plans for hiking but the chess, checkers and games available in the lodge made for a wonderful day playing games and generally being unplugged for... More

The location was gorgeous! Great to getaway and be in the great outdoors and unplug from electronics. The accommodations were perfect for our family. We got to have a cabin which was more spacious with a king size bed, bunk beds, and pull out couch. Plenty of room! Great package deal with Raging Rivers Waterpark as well. We received 2... More

We started two days here. First of all, don't stay in room 104. It backs on the pool and it was noisy almost all the time. The room was not cleaned well after the first night's stay. The bathroom was not touched and the floor was filthy. The beds were awesome. Super comfortable with great linens. We ate in the... More

Near the banks of the Mississippi, the Pere Marquette Lodge is a chance to step back in time or get away from it all....but not too much. Set within a state park, the rooms themselves are equipped with modern luxuries wifi, television, and coffee makers, while the lobby area offers more traditional entertainment such as giant checkers, a grand fireplace,...

The three of us were beginners. And also super excited. They placed us, and the remaining two of the group on what felt like the best matches for each. The guide took us for a 22.1 or 2.2 mile ride through Pere Marquette. It was very quiet, yet the sounds of the horses was beautiful. My own horse had "my... More
