Everyone was a delight from checking in, serving food, adding additional table and chairs. Colleen provides accurate information and offered to reduce our space size due to lack of attendance which was a huge cost savings for all! I appreciate everyones help at making our event a memorable one! Excellent customer service!”

-The Young Family Reunion

Pere Marquette Lodge proved to be a great choice for our family gathering. We had a group of 60+ people of all ages attend. Many ate all of their meals at the restaurant within the Lodge. There was a general consensus on satisfaction with the food and pricing. Check in and out went smoothly. The staff was helpful. The campfire on Thursday night was a big hit. It was a perfect setting. I also heard positive comments on the rooms and accomodations. A special thanks to you (Colleen) for guiding us through the contracting and planning phases and being there as needed during the event.”
