For our anniversary and husband's birthday we returned to the beautiful Pere Marquette Lodge. Our first contact was lovely Rose at the front desk, who greeted us warmly with the smile of an angel. Our spacious room was clean and the bed so comfortable, you felt as if you were sinking in a big cloud. Supper in the goregous dinning room in front of the immense fireplace, was great and our waitress, Crystal was so attentive and friendly. My husband enjoyed the succulent fried chicken and I ordered the French onion soup, that is like a first kiss; UNFORGETTABLE. We had such a great time, and I got some beautiful gifts at the craft fair. Our last meal was breakfast and our waitress Amy was a delight. She was so much fun, and we really enjoyed her gift of laughter to us. We hated to leave but before we left,we made reservations for next year with a gracious and beautiful Raynae at the front desk. We thank them all for making us feel so special and we highly recommend this beautiful place and wonderful staff. Carol and Jerry.....Decatur Il.
