We've stayed at this remarkable condo-resort property many many times and have never been dissatisfied. We've had everything from the one bedroom to the three. This time I was with my son who is a strongly autistic young guy so we just had the one bedroom. The view is INCREDIBLE. The one bedrooms are all on the first floor which is the nicest because you feel you could just touch the blue blue Lake Michigan water and it's so nice to be able to walk out on the lawn directly from your patio. He could be enjoying his new laptop while I walked the lawn taking pictures, and I was never out of his sight. I've told many friends (and they don't always believe me right off) the beach at the Glidden rivals any I've seen in the Caribbean or Mexico. Yes, the water is too cold to swim in most of the year but on the flip-side, it's not ever so hot that you feel you need to actually get in. I generally don't love an indoor pool but the one here is really quite lovely - very warm with an even warmer hot-tub with fresh towels and a shower. And when it comes to clean - I will say without a doubt that the maids must have super-powers. I have never seen a cleaner kitchen, not to mention the entire rest of the condo. I know that the 'other-side' of the peninsula might be the more quintessential Door County in terms of the Cape Cod feel. But I say, go stay over there a few nights for that experience but then come to the Lake Side and stay at this fantastic property and experience the vast beauty that is Lake Michigan. Fabulous!
