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.

We spent the 4th of July weekend at the Pere Marquette lodge. We had cabin number 314. It was a great cabin with air conditioning, great shower pressure and a very comfortable bed. The bunk beds are a little harder, but kids don't usually care! Several things about the lodge: 1. Bring a flash light if you are in the... More

We spent one night at Pere Marquette Lodge. We stayed in the older wing in a room with a river view. You do have to take stairs to get to the older wing, so that meant hauling a suitcase up the stairs, but we were traveling light so it wasn't a problem. The room was comfortable and the only issue...

There are also individual, spacious cabins, but no kitchens or even refrigerators and the fireplaces do not work. thru have been permanently sealed off. You can drive or hike up to outlook spots for gorgeous views, or sit in the... More

Our family reunion of 53 people was here for 3 nights and we all enjoyed it so much that we've made reservations here for the next one. The building is immense and well built in the 1930's, with lots of space to spread out both inside and outside. We especially love to sit outside on the huge porch and watch... More
