Found this place just two weeks before planned getaway. I was not able to get the same room for both nights I planned to stay since it was the peak time at Door County. I agreed to move rooms when making reservations and was initially a little concerned since we had elders and kid in the group. The move turned out to be extremely smooth. Hotel staff moved our luggage cart and every piece of food in the fridge. The resort may not be contemporary but is certainly nice and comfortable. The cathedral Suite was so spacious. The beachfront location is great - I woke up to the beautiful sunrise on the water and quiet waves both mornings. Dining options are limited if you do not want to drive 10 miles but you can certainly cook your own food, order Sonia's pizza from room or dine at the onsite restaurant.

Thanks for your review. We're happy to hear that we could accommodate you, even in the peak season. Just a heads up - the first week of August is traditionally the most sought-after time to be in Door County in general and Glidden Lodge in particular. Our family-friendly two- and three-bedroom units are in high demand, with many of them being booked a year - and sometimes two years - in advance for dates around Aug. 1. We hope to see you again soon.

stayed here one night and while it's not really my kind of joint (too generic and no charm), our room (a 2-bedroom suite) was huge and well appointed and had a fabulous view of the lake. the beach out in front is spectacular too. the restaurant is much older than the lodgings, and uber charming, with quite good supper club fare. you're on the lake side of door county here, and for those who don't know this area well, this side is much colder and more likely to be fogged in, even in summer. that being said, the dunes and natural grasses in front of the resort were really lovely and you could walk for miles down the beach and check out all the great houses.

Room Tip: i think the first floor rooms might be better, as you can simply walk out onto the grounds from your...

Thanks for your review and feedback. Here's a little history: The "uber charming" restaurant right next to us was the first building of the original Glidden Lodge developed in the late 1930s. Donn'y Glidden Lodge Restaurant certainly does a great job; a great compliment to the resort, although a separate business. The existing lodge was constructed as a condo hotel in 1993 and 1994. Our ground floor is taken up almost entirely with one-bedroom units, with a few two-bedroom condos thrown into the mix. The rest of the two-bedrooms, and all of the three-bedrooms, are situated on the second floor. All units face Lake Michigan. And, just saying, we wouldn't trade our location with any other Door County resort. It's all about the beach and the view. Hope to see you again!

Great views from the room. I sat out every morning with my coffee. Lot of space to move around. Too bright in the mornings the blinds are not enough to block the light. We hope to return. The beach area is very nice.

We really enjoyed our stay at Glidden Lodge! The units are very clean, decor has been updated, the views are amazing! We like that it's a little quieter in this area of Door County but all the fun activities are just a short drive away. Great place to stay!!

We are off the beaten path, but that's what adds to our charm. Glidden Lodge is surrounded by trees and of course the awesome sand beach. The quiet road is perfect for biking or a leisurely stroll. And you're right - we're only a short drive from all Door County has to offer. Thanks for staying with us and we're looking forward to your next visit.

We stayed again recently at the Glidden Lodge Beach Resort and as always we were thrilled with our decision to return. We enjoyed being able to make breakfast and lunch in our condo and we had a beautiful view of the beach. The 1 bedroom condo we had was spacious, well appointed, and the beds were really comfortable. It was quiet during our stay and we enjoyed the peaceful and serene feeling of the resort. Can't wait for another getaway to this wonderful resort!

Glidden is an "amazing" place, isn't it? Many of the amazing attributes of the resort come from Mother Nature. We always try our best to enhance those attributes and not detract from them. We're happy you had another great stay and hope to see you again soon. Thanks.

We had a family reunion one weekend in June. We had a 3 bedroom condo which had great space for my family, sister-in-law's family and my in-laws. Beautiful property with views of the lake from all the rooms. Pool was great. Quiet and restful place to stay.
