We had our wedding and reception for 180 people at the lodge in May 2017 and it was perfect. Cassidy was very responsive and accommodating. The staff were absolutely amazing - very polite, attentive to detail, and welcoming. The venue itself is breaktaking in all its natural beauty. And the food was so delicious - all the guests raved about the fried chicken. Highly recommend!Sent on 06/04/2017

I just had my wedding at Pere Marquette Lodge and a really great experience. The prices were very reasonable and we had excellent service. Erin Pea, the lodge wedding coordinator, was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls, and always had an answer to my questions. The lodge had far less rules than other venues I looked at and allowed us to start decorating the night before! While the food at the lodge restaurant was mehhh, the wedding food was actually pretty good and we had a number of people tell us so! The catering staff were super friendly and did an excellent job. Also, we had a couple of things go wrong (like our DJ not showing to name one!) that were not the lodge's fault, but Erin and staff went out of their way to help us despite it not being their fault! Lastly, it was really nice to get married at a spot that also provided ample lodging, and our guests loved hanging out in the beautiful Great Room and also enjoyed the hot tub, swimming pool, exercise room, and life sized chess game.Sent on 01/08/2014
