First time back to Door County in about 15 years, it was a family vacation spot and I brought my friends back for a girls trip before my wedding! Glidden Lodge was beautiful! Breathtaking views, amazing sunrises and an all around great experience! Staff was super friendly and the condos were decorated wonderfully as well! Already looking at when we... More

We go with family every year around X-Mas, always a wonderful place to stay. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Donnys Glidden restaurant is about fifty feet away. Great food. Very GOOD home made soup.

We fell in love with Glidden Lodge almost 18 years ago, when we stayed here for a family reunion! My parents rented 2 3 bedroom condos for all of us and it was the best vacation ever! The setting is beautiful! The lake was perfect because it is shallow and sand based, which the kids loved! The condos are large,... More

Beautiful view of Lake Michigan, excellent amenities - pool, sauna, hot tub, all overlooking the lake! Workout room, and a business room! This place has everything, especially great food and drinks -Donny's next door with some of (if not the best) food in all of Door County! Will keep coming back, and highly recommend to anyone. Worth every penny!

Hey Caleb J! Thanks for your review. As you now know, Lake Michigan changes its mood almost daily, so it's never the same display from our condo rental units, all of which face the lake. And it's right there! You don't need binoculars, unless you want to catch some of the ships sailing by on the horizon. We hope you... More

Glidden Lodge is on the lake rather than more activity filled bay side. We considered this to be a plus. The condo was very comfortable and the large windows make it possible to enjoy the lake even during bad weather. We could look at that lake forever. Staff was warm and professional from our initial inquiries to check out. Very... More

We love it on the lakeside, too! Thanks for your review and your comments about our resort and our staff. Our views of Lake Michigan are mesmerizing and unparalleled. Man, if my office faced the lake, I wouldn't get much done. We hope to see you again soon. Bill Brown General Manager More

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 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
