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

Our one-bedroom suite, which includes a full kitchen and bathtub jacuzzi, was more spacious than we envisioned, pleasantly surprising us ... the kitchen is fully equipped; enough tableware for a mid-sized family, barware, and cooking utensils ... makes for an especially easy in-suite breakfast/lunch prep ... plus, gas grills located a short distance from the porch door ... resort has...

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. It's very relaxing and I am glad you enjoyed your stay! Being in a centralized location to the area towns yet on the quiet side of the peninsula is a definite plus.... More

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.

Have been to Gladden Lodge several times in the past. Absolutely the place to go for quick access to a gorgeous and clean beach. Love being able to walk out the back door and right onto a beach for an hour stroll. Beach is also great for swimming. The kitchen in the condo comes fully equipped with just about everything...

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.

My family has been coming to the Glidden Lodge for 25 years. For many years we came with my three sons, and now it is my wife and me. Regardless of the circumstance, the condos are great, and the location relaxing. There are one, two, and three bedroom condos. All are nicely appointed, with full kitchens and living rooms. Owners...

My wife and I have visited Glidden Lodge for 7 years now, and each trip has always been excellent. The rooms are wonderful, the staff are always helpful and friendly, and the location of the lodge and proximity to the lake make it that much more grand. The past 4 years we've had our son with us, and have found... More

My wife and just spent a long weekend at Glidden. The room was perfect, plenty of space and well appointed. We could walk out and enjoy the views of Lake Michigan from chairs by the shore. There were lots of families having fun down by the beach and in the water but we still had plenty of privacy. Sand flies... More

We only stayed two days but wish it had been more! Beautiful place and so quiet and peaceful!! Would go back again in a minute! At first was concerned about the price but after staying it's definitely worth it. Will bring more of our food next time to save on dining out. Donnie's restaurant next door was the best!!

Sometimes 2 days doesn't seem like enough when you come and see the beauty of this area. It is especially hard when the weather is beautiful and you could experience another perfect beach day to read, sunbathe, or just listen to the waves. We hope you come back and experience Glidden again! Tell your friends!! Take care. More
