We loved our stay! Enjoyed the home away from home feel. Very clean. Very friendly staff. Pool and spa could use some deep cleaning, overall very nice place to stay. We enjoyed our visit so much we plan on staying again soon!

Hello. Thanks for the lovely review. And the pictures listed on your review post were breath taking. We are getting to that time of the year where the pool and whirlpool will be deep cleaned. Sorry you noticed the wear after a busy season. We will look into that accordingly. We hope to see you back. Our staff loves to...

Stayed for an anniversary weekend in a 1 bedroom suite. I have nothing negative to say at all. The suite was clean and comfortable and perfectly provisioned. We would definitely stay again and recommend to others. The view of the lake was fantastic and the pool and hot tub were a bonus!

Our condo was literally steps away from the Lake Michigan beach where we could walk a long way in either direction. We loved waking up and seeing the Lake while laying in bed. The property is older but well maintained. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub - and we are hot tub snobs. :-) Each unit is individually owned...

Over the years I have heard of what a lovely view we have but never right from bed - WOW what a wonderful way to wake up!!! We are so glad you enjoyed the beachfront accommodations. Next time we can put you in a unit in the south wing that overlooks Lake Michigan but may have less foot traffic. Thanks...

Excellent property. Superb view. Very quiet. Accommodations perfect. Restaurant vey good as well. Stayed with my husband. Very relaxing. Good access to all of Door County. Strongly recommend for both families and couples if you are looking to be a slight bit away from the hustle and bustle of some sections of Door County

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I couldn't agree more with your observations. We are close to all Door County has to offer but we are in a quiet and secluded location. We hope that we will see you again in the future. Take care.

We've been coming to Door Co all our lives and very well might have bought a property there some years ago. But, Glidden is the next best thing to owning. The people are really fantastic and the condos are the cleanest in the world. I don't know how the housekeeping staff do what they do...i.e in all our stays in...

Thank you for your honest review. Yes we are in the midst of finding replacement mattresses and hope that this can be something that is done sooner than later. We agree that the view of Lake Michigan is second to none. And sometimes renting is less headache then owning so we are happy to be your "home away from home"...

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...

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...

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,...

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.

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...

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.

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
