Our family wanted to spend time together with enough space to be able to have separate places for the toddlers to chill out yet all of us to be able to come together. There are 16 adults and 6 toddlers and babies in our family. We rented 3, 3 bedroom units which was the perfect combo. Each unit was nicely furnished with beautiful views of the lake. 2 of the units had 1 bedroom downstairs and 2 bedrooms up. This was perfect for families with kids to be together with grandma and grandpa, yet be able to be separate from the grand kids at times. The rooms were right next to each other, so the kids could run next door to play with cousins. The beach was kid friendly, pool wonderful, and we were in driving distance of many attractions.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We are so glad to hear that the accommodations were what your family was looking for to make your vacation relaxing and create happy family memories. The 3 bedroom units sleep up to 8 people so by renting three 3 bedrooms you can fit up to 24 people in these units. And they are over 1500 square feet so you aren't cramped and you can get privacy by going to one of the other units. Sounds like you made a perfect choice for your family getaway. With being centrally located to area attractions as well as having a lovely scenic beach and water view Glidden Lodge is a great place for a family getaway. Thanks for choosing us. We look forward to seeing you again.

Excellent place to relax! Stayed in unit 109. Well appointed plus a great view. Walk along a soft sandy beach. Watch & listen to the gentle waves of Lake Michigan. Looking forward to visiting this place again. It’s the way Door County should be enjoyed!

This was our fir time staying at Glidden, we were in room 103. The view first of all is just amazing. The room was decorated beautifully, the bed was not very comfortable at all (kind of a downer) and the bed spreads were really old. Ours smelled like perfume very strongly. We are already planning a return trip but getting a 2 bed room and bringing both of our children.

Thanks for your review. We are upgrading any beds that need it before season 2019 so I apologize for your discomfort but we do listen to our guests and want their stay to be relaxing and comfortable. The bedspread is something we could have replaced if there was a perfume smell on it. We do have spares for this reason. We are glad you are looking at booking next year and bringing the family. Glidden has a tradition of enticing couples, families, and reunions to join us at our waterfront paradise. Take care.

For the umpteenth time over the last 40 years we have returned to Glidden for our family vacation. It is a fabulous location, quiet, huge beach, great accommodations and a favorite place.
Our sons are grown now and brought their families. We had three units and it worked out beautifully. I would recommend this place wholeheartedly but don't want it to become crowded. Love the remote location and the wonderful spot on Lake Michigan.

Room Tip: All are good

Thank you for your lovely review. We hear often that our return guests don't want to tell too many people about this beautiful vacation spot in Door County so that they still can get reservations!
We always enjoy seeing your family year after year. Take care.

Pros: Glidden Lodge was a beautiful place. It had a beautiful view of Lake Michigan in a great location. The suite had a lot of great amenities with a fully stocked kitchen (no food just pans, dishes, glasses, and coffee maker to name a few). I think they should supply ziplock bags for those using a cooler upon checkout to store unconsumed food. The room was spacious and the bathroom was huge and the shower had good water pressure.
Cons: The place has absolutely no sound deadening insulation. I could here constant pounding foot steps. My room was located next to a stairwell and the running up and down the stairs was absolutely annoying. Also because the folks above us were stomping and running around like crazy people I had to go complain (and we’re very tolerant but we hit a tipping point).
Also the bed was uncomfortable and my wife and I both woke up both days with back aches. As a result of the cons, we most likely won’t be staying there again. Too loud.

Sorry to hear that your stay was less than stellar. First floor units with guests above can sometimes be loud especially during the summer season. I would suggest a one bedroom with no one above you OR a 2 bedroom unit either first or second floor since these don't have guests above you.
Some guests really enjoy coming for a romantic getaway in the off-season so they feel they have the place to themselves rather than when more people are around and it's not as restful or relaxing.
For an uncomfortable mattress we can generally help this situation with a mattress topper. If you would choose to return in the future we can certainly put you in one of the units with our Verlo V3 Plush mattress sets which many guests have really enjoyed and hopefully can give you the right amount of comfort to start your day out right.
Our goal is that every guest enjoys their stay with us. We hope that you would give us an opportunity, maybe during a quieter/slower season, to enjoy our beautiful lodge. Take care.
