Glidden Lodge and resort has a wonderful restaurant with stunning views of Lake Michigan. It has nightly specials and an early bird option at discounted prices from 4:30-6 pm. All dinners include a great soup and salad bar. We both love the food and the view. It's best to make a reservation at least a day ahead of time. We... More

My husband's family has a yearly tradition (over 20 years now) of staying at Glidden Lodge every summer. This is my 3rd year attending. We tend to pick the same suite on the 2nd floor each year. Wonderful stay, as always--quiet, clean, peaceful--right on the water (although too cold to swim!!), very relaxing. The pool and hot tub is very... More

We've stayed at the Glidden Lodge for over 25 years. Even during the busy season we find the peace and solitude we want with the Glidden's private beach on Lake Michigan right outside our door. We always have an immaculate condo and common areas, plentiful amenities, a very responsive staff that remembers your names and treats you like their friends,... More

This was our second stay at the Glidden Lodge and we will be back. It's very roomy for our family of four, and has everything we need. We can prepare all our meals if need be in the fully furnished kitchen. The condo was very clean and had a perfect view of Lake Michigan. The beach is beautiful and the... More

Thank you so much for describing what our private sandy beach looks like. Travelers who have never been to Glidden Lodge don't realize how beautiful and clear the water is. And time spent on the beach is not time wasted! It is time to be a kid again, regroup and relax, talk and reconnect. We hope to see you for... More

Twenty of us gathered at Glidden from the east coast to the west coast and the midwest for a week long reunion. We had four units in close proximity and staked out a little corner of the beach for all the grandchildren. It was perfect for such a gathering, close but separate enough for sanity. We had a big family... More

Thank you for the review! We are known for family gatherings as there are many room types to accommodate couples, young families, plus grandma and grandpa. Many of our return guests bring their families year after year and it becomes a tradition and their "home away from home." We look forward to seeing your group again. Take care. More

Thanks for your review. So many guests enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine on the private patios and balconies while enjoying the beautiful view.

Desk staff, cleaning staff, everyone is so friendly and willing to talk with you. The beach is clean. There are plenty of lounge chairs on the beach. The pool area is clean and the chairs in the pool area are so comfy.

We've been staying at The Glidden since 1991 and have stayed there more than a dozen times. It's the perfect location on the peninsula for relaxation and family fun. The views of the lake, the proximity to an amazing beach and the beautiful rooms keep us coming back.

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.
