We were traveling as a couple. Our unit was very clean clean and comfortable, and we just loved the book on the coffee table about Door County Art. One of the most wonderful moments of our stay was watching the sun rise over Lake Michigan. Beautiful sand beach, we walked all the way to Whitefish Dunes State Park. Resort staff...

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...

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...

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.

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.

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
