Glidden Lodge Beach Resort

Certificate of Excellence
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.

Great resort to relax and enjoy the shoreline. It's a little dated but not bad at all. The suites are very nice size and could accommodate a family without feeling crowded. The restaurant on the premises is excellent.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We take pride in our classic decor and continue to update every year to meet our guests expectations. We have updated living room furniture, mattresses (this spring), lobby and reception area, as well as some individual renovations with fireplaces and counter tops. All of this while overlooking Lake Michigan and hearing the waves against the shore. The restaurant is separately owned and is called Donny's and they do have excellent food and serve dinners starting at 4pm. We hope you will come back and visit us again.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. And we are glad you keep coming back to stay with us. This time of the year is such a beautiful time in Door County when the leaves are showing their glorious colors and ah when the sun shines on those fall leaves it is magical. Any time of the year is a great time to go to Donny's Restaurant next door. And we enjoy couples, families, and singles alike. Hope to see you again. Take care.

Thanks for the review. The three bedroom layout that you stayed in was probably a cathedral 3 bedroom with 2 master bedrooms and 2 master baths. We have other layouts for our 3 bedrooms as well. It's nice to have the option to choose what fits your families needs the best. We hope to see you again. Take care.

An expansive view of our Door County beach awaits you from every room.
What about the Fall colors, is their a trail or park near by
The fall colors are beautiful at this time of year. And yes we are near Whitefish Dunes State Park which has beautiful walking trails plus it's right on the shores of Lake Michigan. Also Cave Point County Park next to Whitefish Dunes State Park is gorgeous for fall colors and picturesque bluffs and waves.
