This was a home visit back in 2011 and we selected to stay at Pere Marquette lodge. It was convenient for us as it was close to family and within travelling distance of other attractions. The rooms were very nice and layed out in cottage format which we loved. There is also a restaurant on site as well as a... More

Really impressed and will definitely plan another visit. Our 4 year old loved it! Recommend getting a cabin during the week. Very reasonable. Enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. Ran on the trails along the river. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was excellent. Lots of games to play in the main room, including a giant chess board and Connect Four.... More

We went here for breakfast and just a general little self-guided tour. The dining room was wonderful and the breakfast was very good, and very reasonably priced. The park is a really nice place to just walk around and soak up the history. The visitor's center is very helpful and has a lot of displays to look at. Although we... More

I very much enjoyed this facility. It's a neat CCC-built lodge not too far from St. Louis. The hotel itself is really beautiful. The great-room is fantastic, with gorgeous fiber art hanging from the ceiling and gigantic board games to relax and play with friends. The business meeting rooms were very nice also. The staff were quite kind.

I've stayed here a few times and have, for the most part, enjoyed my experience. The rooms are nice, there is a good pool, it's close to the state park, and the place has character and charm. The most recent time I was here, the breakfast fare at the restaurant wasn't spectacular. We also discovered a mouse in our cabin!... More

My husband and I rented a cabin at this location. It was very rustic and roomy. It had a separate living room, bedroom and decent bathroom. It was walking distance to the lodge. The lodge has a winery, gift shop and restaurant. The food at the restaurant was pretty good. The wine was a little weak for my taste. Overall,... More

My husband and I recently spent the weekend in the Grafton area for the first time. We loved the area and will return. Pere Marquette State Park is beautiful. The Lodge is unique and I'm sure "back in the day" it was a luxurious place to stay. The room was clean and comfortable, but definitely overpriced in comparison to nicer... More

My partner and I stayed here for the night on a Wednesday at the end of May in 2014. It was pretty empty, except for some older women playing a card game, but I was more than happy to have that- made it nice and peaceful which was what were after. We had driven from Springfield, IL and stopping for... More

My Husband and I just spent the night here. We purchased a Romantic package in a cottage. It was ok. Pretty dated. Seemed clean, just old. It was about $200, however it included a $50 dining certificate. We didn't experience any issues with the pool area. The dinner was mediocre. We did have a cook to order breakfast that I... More

Our extended family stayed at the lodge in March. Our rooms were clean and other than we did not get adjoining rooms for one family with 3 children as requested, we were satisfied with the rooms. One of the things we were not happy with was our daughter sliced her toe open on a piece of glass in the pool.... More
