The apartments were clean, but could use updating. They were built and decorated in 1993, and have not changed. It was very nice to have a full kitchen and enough space for all of us to spread out. The kitchen came in very handy. The swimming pool was very nice, and the kids had a great time swimming. There wasn't... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your off-season get-away. Many people think that a beach resort is not an option in the winter but that is not true. The waters of Lake Michigan are very active and turbulent during winter and the sound of the waves crashing is like none other. We are in the process of more updates each... More

Great time - great place - great people! Our stay started off by being welcomed by Mimi, who is the most cordial front desk clerk! Explained everything we needed to know - things to do in the area, restaurant recommendations, etc! Our condo style room was fabulous - double whirlpool tub, fireplace, full kitchen, comfy furnishings, and a fantastic setting... More

Wonderful, romantic lodge right on Whitefish Bay. Glidden Lodge is fantastic. Have stayed in 1 and 3 bedroom condos right on the beach! Away from the crowds but close to everything. Will never stay anywhere else now. Has a great beach that you can walk all the way to Cave Point and Whitefish Dunes Park plus one of the best... More

This was our first time at Glidden Lodge Beach Resort. We rented a one bedroom condo. We came with our two children ages 10 and 8. It was so much fun. Our room was awesome.

Once again, GL was a wonderful visit. However, Mother Nature got the best of the beach, which was ruined during the recent storm. Hopefully they will rebuild it. Otherwise, it was a wonderful visit! Thank you for a great weekend getaway.

Yep. Mother Nature ate our beach. We had no room for our beach chairs this spring, so we performed a DNR-approved grading of the beach to make more room. In the last month, Nature ate that up as well. An article in the Green Bay paper a couple of months ago said Lake Michigan levels haven't been this high in... More

Front desk staff was cheerful, parking was easy, there was an indoor pool & hot tub (we did not partake) & the grounds were well maintained.
