We stayed at PML on an "eagle-watching" weekend. The lodge was comfortable and clean with extra amenities that appealed to all of us (12 years old to 75 years old). The kids loved the pool and all the games. They had plenty to do, from ping-pong, to chess, board games, swimming and hiking. The weather was great and we saw...

We stayed in a cabin which, unfortunately, felt old and tired. The lighting was very poor, the TV picture was fuzzy, the furniture was beat up, and the bathroom was tiny. The food in the restaurant was OK, but we had a bad experience on Saturday night. We called and tried to order take-out food over the phone. We were...

There were 12/14 of us that stayed the night. We utilized 3 rooms. They were comfy rooms and we had many laughs together. The lodge was amazing! I really enjoyed the the beautiful decor and we enjoyed playing the games with our kiddos! My nephew proposed, to his now future fiancee while we were there, in front of the fireplace,...

We lodge is located right off the Illinois river and is in a beautifully wooded area. We were staying in the older section of the lodge,...

My wife and I travel extensively, and as such have have had good, bad, and occassionally..."wonderful" surprises. Our trip this week to Pere Marquette Lodge to partake in their "Bald Eagle Tour," was truly one of those wonderful surprises. Driving onto the Pere Marquette property is the first surprise. Set on the banks of the Illinois River and nestled into...

Enjoyed a fun winter weekend at Pere Marquette Lodge. Spent the night in one of the lodge rooms (newer section). Room was clean, comfortable and nicely appointed. We had a good "fried chicken" dinner served family-style in the restaurant and a great buffet breakfast. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. All gathered in the great room for...

We got the cottage which it was a step away from the amenities. I loved the thick limestone walls; we didn't hear any outside noise. It really feels to be away from everything since there was no internet connection. I personally enjoyed it. Food at the restaurant was like home made cooking. The place in general was really clean. We...
