This is a beautifully restored CCC-built lodge in Pere Marquette State Park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 2nd floor of the lodge with a nice view of the Illinois River. It was in the new addition to the historic lodge, but we would not have known it was new had we not been... More

We drive from St Louis every fall to see the leaves change and eat at the Lodge. We always get excellent photos and have a delicious meal. Fried chicken on Sunday. Amaretto cheesecake was outstanding. Not too sweet with great almond flavor. One of these years we'll stay at the Lodge but we're honestly waiting for an upgrade. The rooms... More

We had a queen sized, cabin room, which was very spacious. We had a nice breakfast the next morning. The office staff were nice. We were able to walk around the big area around the lodge and walk down to the river.

Took my sister to lunch here. It was as nice as I remembered as a child. Food was good, and server was very nice; even tried to give us a "to-go" drink. This place has been here for a very long time (my wife told me her parents honeymooned here in 1948). The upkeep must be very difficult, but it... More

Beautiful scenery, serene atmosphere, and wonderful service! Went here for a quick weekend getaway with family--hiked, went to the visitor center, lots of swimming and fun family games in the lodge. We had a problem with the heating unit in our room which was quickly remedied by the front desk staff. Great stay!

Arrived at 1:00 pm placed our name on the list, wait time 45". Checked out the dining room saw 5 tables ready and empty. Lots of people standing in the hallway waiting. 20" later still no one at those 5 tables. Hostess said they can't seat people 10" before shift change. That turned into 30" 5 to 9 tables open....

Such a great getaway, have been coming here for years. We used to stay in the rooms but have been staying in the cabins! Love it, just wish the cabins had Wi-Fi. Such a relaxing environment. Our favorite time of the year is the fall, when the leaves are changing and the air is crisp.

Beautiful state park setting. The cabins are a bit old and dated and no Wi-Fi. But the Lodge is beautiful and the rooms are updated and more spacious. The restaurant at the Lodge is very good and the staff is courteous and friendly.

Beautiful fall day and really enjoyed the lodge! We were able to play games into the night in the lodge and enjoyed ourselves. Wine tasting was fun and the area was gorgeous on the hiking trails. The restaurant's fried chicken was really good. And plenty of sides.

Such a beautiful unique place in a beautiful setting. We were there for a wedding which was outdoors with the reception inside, it was all so perfect! The rooms are large and the beds so comfortable. It was all I could do to keep from stealing the pillows they were so comfy!
