Hotel Overview

An architectural masterpiece, this historic Lodge features 50 foot vaulted ceilings supported by a network of massive wood beams along with a life-size chess set and an immense, 700 ton stone fireplace. A wall of windows overlooks the Illinois River and an outdoor shaded terrace offers a quiet spot to take in the beauty of the view. Follow the peg and groove hardwood floors to the Pere Marquette Lodge Restaurant which is popular with fried chicken enthusiasts and anyone looking for classic American fare. The on-site Winery offers guests award-winning local wines while the indoor atrium pool features floor to ceiling windows and a stunning view of the river valley below. 72 well-appointed rooms and cabins include modern amenities with a decidedly rustic-air. Enjoy a cozy cabin room with limestone and wood walls, a historic wing room overlooking the lush river valley or a double queen room with a park view.
