If you are looking for a quick getaway that includes beautiful scenery, rustic accommodations, indoor swimming pool and an on-site restaurant, then the Pere Marquette Lodge and Conference Center is the place to go. All our meals were good, with an extensive menu from which to choose. We stayed in the "newer" wing in room 115, which was near the... More

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

On a trip from central missouri to Chicago area we elected to spend a quick late afternoon and evening at the Lodge. We elected a river view room in the historic section. Room was large and comfortable as was King bed. Both dinner and morning breakfast were excellent with good service and very reasonable prices. Staying at the Lodge on... 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

We did not stay overnight, but did tour the lodge and conference center. We are planning to reserve a cabin for next year and go with our relatives, it is a BEAUTIFUL view of the river and relaxing! Inside the conference center there is a quaint winery, loved it! They have a tasty Moscato that we purchased and reasonable wine... More

We couldn't get over how quiet this place was with about 40 college kids staying there. We arrived expected a river view room . I opened the curtains and saw the filtration system for the pool.
