4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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... More

Glidden Lodge is the perfect place for quite relaxation and fun with kids. We stayed there for nearly a week and were so content that, even though it is out of the way (perhaps a blessing,) we will undoubtedly try to return there in the future. It is well run and great importance is placed on attention to detail. The... More

My family has stayed at the Glidden for five or six years. The condos have all been in excellent condition, very comfortable, and full of amenities. The beach is lovely, and Donny's Glidden Lodge is our traditional and wonderful last meal of each vacation. The staff works hard to make sure every visit is lovely.

Great facilities in Door County's absolutely best setting. Condos, beach, lake views are all outstanding. Will continue to visit here in coming years with our family. They all love the beach here and spend the daytime sunning.

Whenever we go to Door County, we always stay at Glidden Lodge. We love being right on the water - we walk down the beach all the way to Whitefish Dunes State Park. The view from our second floor room was fantastic! The unit was very spacious and had everything we needed. We plan on asking for the same unit... More

the three bedroom condo with kitchen was well equipped with all of the essentials needed for a three day stay. Flat screen TV's worked and the channel selection was more than enough for us.

The Glidden Lodge was a very relaxing experience for my husband and family. We took all of our family ( including 6 adults and 6 grandchildren). The kids had a wonderful day at the beach. The view is spectacular. The only issue was I was expecting a room with the cathedral ceilings which I had looked at prior to booking... More

Glidden Lodge is perfect for Door County vacationers who want to be nestled away from the tourist hubbub. Our stay occurred prior to the beginning of the summer season. As a result few people were in Door County in general, and we had the expansive beach by the resort almost exclusively to ourselves. Every condo has a breathtaking view of... More

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
