I have been coming to Pere Marquette Lodge for 50 years. Its a quiet retreat along the Illinois River and I've built so many memories here. I will continue to return and enjoy the tranquility, sights and sounds of nature and the wonderful service by the staff. I have never had a bad stay here and have enjoyed the fire...

This place is not luxurious by any means, BUT we love to come here, we have for years and will continue to do so. We have stayed in cabins with the bunk beds and also the main lodge. It's an old lodge with so much charm. We love to hang out in the main lobby, play cards, drink wine let...

We love this place. We've been visiting for over 10 years, usually to celebrate our wedding anniversary in mid-January. It's a fantastic CCC structure with lots of history and charm. The last few years we've shared the lodge with a very large family reunion, that likes to gather in the common areas. The people seem very nice and they certainly...

We did not get to use any of the amenities we booked this hotel for because the staff allowed everything to be taken over by a group that completely took over the great room and pool area with food and drinking and obnoxious behavior and let it spread throughout the hotel without concern for any other paying guests. We could...

Dear Mr. Williams, Thank you for your time in expressing your concerns to us. Christmas at the lodge is a time where family's come to gather and celebrate the christmas season. We want all of our guests to enjoy themselves. Unfortunately it seems that the enjoyment experienced by one group of guest dampened your enjoyment of the holiday season. Best...

This is a wonderful location for a family reunion. We will come back year after year!! We had a family group of 26, from babies all the way to seniors and we felt totally comfortable. The pool and hot tub are great. The restaurant is a big plus.

Stayed in the cabins, so cozy. Could've slept for a month in there if I didn't have to leave on Sunday. Recommended for any traveller, but probably not if you're planning on getting fired up and loud, very relaxing and peaceful.

Avinas N, Manager at Pere Marquette Lodge & Conference Ctr, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review

Dear Gustavo-Fried, Thank you for your nice review and compliment of our cabins. I know it is difficult to go back to normal after a relaxing weekend where you are detached from every day stress. We look forward to having you stay with us in the future. Sincerely, Avinas N. Assistant General Manager

This was the perfect venue for my daughter's wedding. The wedding food was complimented by all. We also ate the night before in the restaurant and had a great family style chicken dinner. Staff was very helpful. Beds and rooms were comfortable. There is lots to do, swimming, ping pong, table games, etc. Great family place.

We stayed in December 2016 in one of the cabins. We really enjoyed getting and staying here. The cabins are smallish but cozy and you have all of the comforts you need: heat/air, TV, shower/bath, hairdryer, on site restaurant. One factor to take into account is wifi; since we stayed in a cabin, we weren't able to connect at all...

“the cabins are rustic, the old section of the lodge has great river views and the new section is near the pool. something for everyone.”
