My wife and I had the pleasure staying for four months. The staff were friendly and treated us like family. They exceeded our expectations and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great lodging experience.

We went up to Door County for a romantic weekend away. I haven't been there since I was a kid. We looked up Glidden Lodge and booked it. Right when we arrived, Carolyn at the front desk welcomed us. She was so friendly. She gave us tips for restaurants to try. The room was beautiful. There was a nice guestbook to read from the owners. The views of the lake were AMAZING! We loved the hot tub and pool facilities also. We will definitely be back!

I just returned from a couple days at Glidden Lodge - a wonderful place to stay as the snow is coming down. The one bedroom we stayed in was perfect - as was the view looking out on the icy waves of Lake Michigan - while sitting in front of a warm fire. I highly recommend this place!

We have have been to Glidden Lodge several times over the years. We have visited in the summer with our children and in the winter with just my husband and me. Glidden Lodge is located on the much quieter "lake side" where you are just a short drive from all the dining, shopping and recreational activities that Door County has to offer. The condos are charming with a beautiful view of the lake including a private patio. In the summer we enjoy hiking, walking along the beach, navigating the corn maze, and golfing the many local courses with our boys. In the winter my husband and I enjoy visiting the local wineries and relaxing in the pool/spa area or in front of the fireplace on a cold winter day. Glidden Lodge has been a great place for our family to stay and we always look forward to a return visit.

Just what we needed! Beautiful, clean, can't-beat-the-view lodging. Our condo was awesome and we enjoyed the hotel's pool and hot tub. Right by Whitefish Dunes State Park and Cave Point County Park. Restaurant on the grounds - very friendly, good food, good value. Just like the rest of Wisconsin!

Yes, it's hard not to relax here at Glidden Lodge, what with the waters of Lake Michigan right outside your suite and the peaceful surrounding area. Thanks for your review. We hope to see you again.

We were there for a week in early October. It was our first time visiting Door County. The property was suggested by a friend who had stayed there before. There isn't much to add to the comments of others except to say that it was exactly what we had hoped for. The location was excellent for exploring the County. The beach was cool but very walkable. The bed was a little softer than we would have put in if we had furnished the place - but we didn't - and sleeping wasn't a problem. Our Trolley Tour guide insisted that the restaurant on the property (Donny's) was the best in the County (we didn't find a better one). For a couple hovering around 60, this was great.

We went to the Glidden Lodge In Sturgeon Bay Wi to celebrate our anniversary. We have never relaxed so much on a vacation as we have there! Each room is uniquely decorated in its own theme and faces Lake Michigan with a spectacular view! There is a wonderful sandy beach to walk or lounge on while relaxing. They have one, two and three bedroom suites. The ground floor rooms have their own private patio.The room is huge and spotless and will lit, with a fireplace, two TV's, a dining table, pull out sofa and two sitting chairs. There is a full kitchen, with everything you need, and a huge master bathroom and relaxing whirlpool! A nice indoor pool/whirlpool area off the main lobby, is clean and relaxing, and also faces Lake Michigan. Just a few short steps away is Donny's Glidden Lodge Restaurant, which is Fantastic! With a variety of unique menu choices, here too you can enjoy a delicious dinner, with a table facing Lake Michigan! The bar room is quaint, friendly relaxing and cozy. The dinners are Wonderful! We had a very enjoying a very relaxing dining experience. The hotel staff as well as the restaurant staff are friendly, and helpful. The Lodge is a great place to stay just a very short distance from all the traffic of Door County. After shopping and touring Door County for two days, returning to the Glidden Lodge Beach Resort each evening made our a trip to the Door County Peninsula an absolutely perfect vacation! Both the Lodge and restaurant is perfect for a couples get away or for a family vacation. The web site is very informative, and allows you to look at each rooms layout. Check for off season rates and packages for the lodge and hours of operation for the restaurant in the off season, as I believe the restaurant is closed Sundays after October. Just a small note, you may find the lodge just a slight bit more pricey then perhaps some other resorts in Door County, however all of Door County's resorts during the peak season are up in costs. We are glad tho we made the choice we did!! We are planning to add the Glidden Lodge Beach resort into our yearly vacations getaways twice a year! We travel often, with larger trips and many weekend getaways, and this was one of the best weekend getaways we have experienced! Tho the lodge is located down its own little road off a main road, we felt very safe at the Glidden Lodge. Even if you live in WI or are visiting Door County WI, do not hesitate to choose the Glidden Lodge Resort as your lodge to stay in! I have no doubt you will enjoy it as much as we did!
