FAQ

What are your prices?
Our prices range from $99 to $179 per night (based on double occupancy) and depend on the day of the week and the time of year. Please call for our Front Desk staff at 618-786-2331 to check in on availability and pricing.

Why won’t my phone work?
We are located in a heavily wooded area surrounded by hills and bluffs. Because of these beautiful surroundings, some cell phones will not receive signal while at the Lodge. Every room is equipped with a land line so that guests can make calls from their room. The Front Desk can activate your in-room phone so that you can make calls to the outside world.

Is there wifi?
Yes, but due to our thick limestone walls, not every room is able to access the wifi. It is available in the Great Room which is open 24 hours a day. Simply log onto the Pere Marquette Lodge network and click through the portal. There is no password necessary.

Is your Restaurant open?
Yes, our Restaurant is open every day of the year including major holidays! To make a reservation, please call 618-786-2331, extension 502. Visit our Restaurant page for more information.

What about smoking and can I bring my pet?
All guest rooms are non-smoking. No pets and/or animals other than service animals are allowed indoors. We love pets and they are more than welcome on our outdoor grounds, such as our winery patio and Lodge terrace but not inside.

What is the room capacity?
Rooms accommodate a maximum of four adults or five people if one is a child. Additional charges apply for more than 2 adults.

What does it cost to add more than two people to my room?
$10 per additional person, children 17 and under are free.

What if there are not enough beds?
Roll-away beds are $10 per night and Pack-n-plays are available at no extra cost.

Can we stay for one night on the weekend?
Some weekends have a two night minimum but we do have some exceptions. Please inquire, we will be happy to check for you, 618-786-2331.

What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations must be made 7 days prior. No penalty with 7 days prior notification. If less than 7 days prior and we are unable to resell, penalty is room & tax.

What is check-in and check-out? Can we get early check-in or late check-out?
Check-in time for lodge rooms is at 3:00pm and check in for cabin rooms is at 4:00pm. Check out time is 11:00am for all rooms. We make every effort to honor early check-in. Depending on occupancy, sometimes we can get you in your room before your designated check in time.

Can I get a specific room?
We guarantee room location as far as lodge, cabin, or handicap. Other room type requests are not guaranteed simply because we do not know if, or when, a specific room may temporarily go out of service.

Are their microwaves or refrigerators in the rooms?
We do not have those amenities in the rooms but we do have a microwave located at our front desk which you are more than welcome to use. We also offer refrigerators for $10 a night.
