My wife and just spent a long weekend at Glidden. The room was perfect, plenty of space and well appointed. We could walk out and enjoy the views of Lake Michigan from chairs by the shore. There were lots of families having fun down by the beach and in the water but we still had plenty of privacy. Sand flies...

Wonderful! We are so glad that your stay was beautiful and relaxing. It's also nice when Mother Nature cooperates with sunny days with a slight breeze to keep the sand flies at bay. We hope you are able to enjoy our facilities in the future. Take care.

We only stayed two days but wish it had been more! Beautiful place and so quiet and peaceful!! Would go back again in a minute! At first was concerned about the price but after staying it's definitely worth it. Will bring more of our food next time to save on dining out. Donnie's restaurant next door was the best!!

Sometimes 2 days doesn't seem like enough when you come and see the beauty of this area. It is especially hard when the weather is beautiful and you could experience another perfect beach day to read, sunbathe, or just listen to the waves. We hope you come back and experience Glidden again! Tell your friends!! Take care.

Very happy we chose this place for a beach vacation in Door County. Next to the gem of Whitefish Dunes state park and Cave point. We really enjoyed this. Amazing sandy beach to walk on for miles and the water and beaches were so clean. The condo room was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed with a gorgeous...

We had beautiful weather and a delightful view of the gorgeous daily sunrise over Lake Michigan. We enjoy our lobster dinner at the close by Donny's restaurant and a delicious fish boil at White Gull Inn at Fish Creek.

1, 2 and 3-bedroom condos with views of Lake Michigan and time shares that allow for short lets (a weekend or partial week). Great place to stretch out, enjoy Lake Michigan (small sandy beach and swimmable area - no life guards and even at the height of summer the water can be very cold). Housekeeping was consistent and unobtrusive. My...

What a thorough review of our lovely resort! Thank you for taking the time. It is very handy to be centrally located to all Door County has to offer, and at the same time quiet and tranquil as a vacation getaway. In summer we do see many families who return year after year. During the off season we see less...

We really enjoyed the Lodge and will definitely return. The beach is fabulous -- probably the best beach in Door County. Lots of nice sand -- protected from the larger waves you would experience in Whitefish Dunes state park. Beautiful views from the condo. I gave this lodge 4 rather than 5 stars partly because I am stingy with my...

Glidden Lodge is the perfect place for quite relaxation and fun with kids.

It is well run and great importance is placed on attention to detail. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful one, two, and three bedroom condo rentals on a sprawling white-sand Lake Michigan beach in a quiet, tranquil setting in Door County, WI. All units face the water and all are equipped with full kitchens, gaslog fireplaces, two-person spa tubs and most anything else you may need for a peaceful get-away or a family gathering. For those who can't leave their work behind, we provide free Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the resort. Forgot your laptop? No problem. We have a business center at your disposal off the lobby. Throw in an indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, fitness room and tennis court, and you can be as active as you want. Or just sit back with a good book while listening to the waves lap the shore. Donny's Glidden Lodge Restaurant is right next door and serves dinners only. Open year-round. ... more   less
