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

This was our third time staying at this historic lodge - we love lodges from this era. The state park, Illinois River and close proximity to St. Louis make Pere Marquette an excellent stop for a driving vacation. The main lodge is my favorite part - many comfortable chairs for reading and relaxation. Try to do at least two nights,... More

We spent two nights in Pere Marquette Lodge and it was the perfect place for a writing retreat. It was quiet, it had a good restaurant. Service in the restaurant was quite good. The dinner was all right but cheap and the breakfast was excellent. There were a lot of nice trails to walk on. By the size of the... More

While we are not frequent visitors of state park lodges, tending to stay at hotel chains usually, we understand that Pere Marquette is quite nice for a state park lodge. The lodge is located in a quiet, riverfront location just steps from the state park visitors' center and some trailheads. It has a charming, rustic public area in the lodge... More

Pere Marquette Lodge is a pleasant place! Lovely lobby with gorgeous quilts hanging from the ceiling, wonderful fireplace, comfortable chairs. The rooms are typical motel rooms with WIFI, coffee--the usual. My only critique is the restaurant! The food is less than mediocre...and since good restaurants in nearby Grafton are very few and far between, the Lodge would be doing itself... More

I stayed here one night in December for a girls' weekend. There is not much going on in the town of Grafton in the off-season, but we had a great time at the lodge. We stayed in one of the cabin rooms. It was very spacious and comfortable. Considering that the lodge has been around for a long time, it... More

We stayed on a Sunday night with the Throwback Eagle Package. For around $115 ($99 plus fees and taxes), we had a one-night stay, dinner, breakfast and alcoholic beverages for two. We used to stay at Pere Marquette Lodge every year when our children were young, but it had been several years since we had stayed overnight here. Our room... More

The lodge has lots of character as well as conveniences. It has a pool, hot tub, exercise room, wine room, 2' chess pieces and board near fireplace, great views of river, marked hiking trails and a very nice restaurant. The room was a little chilly with heat on high. Bed and pillows were super comfortable. Large rain shower head. The... More

This February we enjoyed the Eagle Watching Package. For about $100 for two, we had a cabin room and breakfast and dinner. The meal selection was limited and simple but good. Beverages, including one drink in the restaurant or winery, were included. Meal selections included fish, pot roast, pork, salad, etc. Breakfast selections included pancakes, eggs with bacon or sausage,... More
