Glidden Lodge is situated off Whitefish Bay looking out onto Lake Michigan, just north of Sturgeon Bay. The condo was beautifully appointed and the bathroom tub/whirlpool was big enough for the two of us! With Donny's restaurant across the driveway, there's no worries about avoiding deer on the way home! There is a kid-friendly pool with an attached hot tub,... More

Nice living room with sofa and 2 comfy chairs, gas fireplace & TV. Nice dining area and kitchen. Bathroom had a whirlpool tub and separate shower. Separate bedroom with a... More

Thank you for your great review. We are off the beaten path and, for most of our guests, that is a huge plus. For those who want the hustle and bustle of a busy tourist community, we may be a bit too quiet. That's OK; we like it that way. We hope to see you again soon. Bill Brown General... More

We love to stay at the Glidden Lodge. We mostly stay in the fall or the spring. Both times of year it is beautiful and very relaxing. We love the fireplace and the view and love walking on the beach and listening to the sound of the waves. My daughter loves to cook in the nice kitchen. Our only complaint... More

Thanks for your comments. I'm a dog lover myself, but our condo documents clearly prohibit pets. Even our owners have to leave their pets at home when they visit. There are several good kennel facilities in Door County to board your pets, and some of our guests use them. Also, there are pet-friendly lodging places in Door County; check out... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. Very nice place. It is condos that are rented out. Location was great and views were beautiful. Very clean inside and out. Had pool and sauna which we were not able to use but looked fantastic. Outside is right on the water. Saw beach area, lots of picknic tables and grills as well as... More

We rented a 3 bedroom condo (I believe they are all timeshares, or owner operated) it was very nice, up to date (flat panel TV, appliances) and clean. Front desk was helpful and professional, and lobby/hallways are well kept. Big plus was the beach just 50 yards from our room, and the views were fantastic (our unit faced Lake Michigan)... More

Ok so the view is amazing, albeit you have to get up early for the sunrise! The suites the two of us stayed in are set up great and have a cozy country feel! Walkout to the beach is great, however I don't think we've slept in a more uncomfortable bed!!! Staff is nice and very helpful, however the pool... More

Thanks for the feedback on the bed comfort level. Although we replaced mattresses in 2010 with a quality product, preferences and standards change quickly in the world of mattresses. And it's such a subjective issue. Rest assured (pun intended) the matter will be addressed. We hope to see you again soon. Bill Brown General Manager More

Beautiful one bedroom condo right on the lake. Nice indoor pool. Private beach with chairs lakeside. Great restaurant next door. The kitchen was fully equipped and we had a dishwasher. We will definitely go back. Love it.

It's great to have a dishwasher on vacation, right? It saves important time to relax and enjoy the surroundings of the trees and, of course, Lake Michigan at your door step. Please join us again when you get the chance. Thanks for your review. Bill Brown General Manager More

What a find! The Glidden Lodge has it all.....the lake is just a few yards from the units and we could see it from every room. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo with 3 bathrooms; it had a lovely well equipped kitchen, four balconies and lots of living space. The lodge is just 30-40 minutes away from most of... More

Your review is much appreciated, and it highlighted the restful and restorative nature of Glidden Lodge Beach Resort. Many of our guests share your opinion - why go anywhere else? I also share your love for the pan-fried walleye at Donny's Restaurant next door to the resort. My favorite! Hope to see you again soon. Bill Brown General Manager More

We stayed in a large, 2-story, 3 bedroom suite/condo. This was excellent--great views of the lake, beautiful property with nice amenities (pool, hot tub, sauna, workout room, sporting activities such as volleyball and bike riding, etc...), and free WiFi. It was beach-front, with a private beach on the property. Water was too cold to swim, but great to sit on... More

GLIDDEN LODGE is situated right on the beach at Lake Michigan. Pleasant, spacious, commodious rooms with kitchen, living room and walk outs to beach. Great restaurant located steps away at the end of the complex. Self contained environment. Leisure travel from there to explore rest of Door county , Wisconsin,.
