We just spent four wonderful nights at the Lodge. Our room was quite large, king size bed, and at the end of the hallway which was very quiet. The pool was amazing and we had it to ourselves! We stayed Monday - Thursday night and since this is "off season" we pretty much had the place to ourselves. The staff... More

Stayed in a cabin and killed over 20 mosquitoes during the night in the room. The floor lamp did not work nor did the remote work completely. The carpet was dirty and needed cleaning. The bathroom was very, very small. The wifi connection in the cabin was so poor our devices would not work. Would suggest staying in the lodge... More

We rented a cabin and enjoyed 2 nights at the Lodge. You can join two rooms together if you book in advance. The grounds are nice and shady. The pool was indoors. It was clean and the water was perfect. The fried chicken was really good. But they serve the same fried potatoes with everything. The winery is just a... More

This resort is very clean, staff nice, and grounds are beautiful. The fried chicken and cold slaw are exceptional and servers do a good job. We stayed in cabin 310 and unless your a skinney person I don't recommend it. The bathroom is very small. We had stayed in their other cabins and they are larger, so this was a... More

This is my second stay here this year. This time we stayed in a cabin. We rented all three units in one cabin. The employees were very friendly at the front desk and immediately sprayed the mosquitoes that had gotten in the cabins as they were bad this weekend due to all the dampness. We took advantage of hiking, biking... More

We always enjoy the serenity and peace of staying at Pere Marquette Lodge near Grafton, IL. The on-site restaurant and winery add to the enjoyment and convenience of the stay. You can do as much...hiking, sightseeing, eagle watching, playing the oversized games in the great room...or as little...enjoying a glass of wine and a good book on the veranda or... More

This is a great "out of the way" location but still close enough to other attractions to make it good for a base to explore the area. Depending on your time of year visiting, we took in a Cardinals ball game, went downtown grafton and walked main street shopping and lunching, etc. We arranged a dinner for the family in... More

This was just the most charming little lodge!! If you rent a cabin you will feel more secluded, however the restaurant & pool are in the main house. Very good place if you want to unwind. No phone signal at all. I didn't have dinner there, but breakfast was really good. If you're not boating there's not a whole lot... More

Great cabin. Nice romance package (box of chocolates, champagne, and $50 voucher for dinner at the lodge). Everything was well done. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because we had no WiFi service in the cabin. Do not know if it had WiFi or it was broken.

I wished I could have stayed longer but the availability was limited. I love the rustic look and the state park area. We took the ferry across to Missouri. If we lived closer I would like to take advantage of their weekend events like Mystery dinners and seasonal activities. They say this place is haunted but nothing would scare me... More
