Explore Hotel

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.

Step out of the Pere Marquette Lodge & Conference Center, BW Premier Collection and into Pere Marquette State Park which is the largest State Park in Illinois with over 8,000 acres available for visitors to explore. Many choose to hike the infamous trails to breathtaking views of the river valleys and beyond, others tour the park by motoring along the winding scenic drive with areas to pull off and enjoy amazing views. Horseback riding, rock climbing, fishing, hunting, biking and boating are also popular park activities. Stop by the on-site Pere Marquette Park Visitors Center to plan exciting excursions and learn about the Bald Eagles that frequent the area January through March.

In Grafton, guests can enjoy a variety of wineries, restaurants and pubs, many with live music. Shopping is a popular pastime along with ziplining, river boat tours, picking produce at Eckerts Farm and touring around historic downtown on foot. Other nearby excursions include Cahokia Mounds, the St. Louis Arch, the Science Center, the Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower, the St. Louis Zoo, the City Museum, the Confluence Museum and more.
