Come Visit our Expansive Sandy Beach!!!



Visit our Sandy Beach!!!

Welcome back sandy beach!!!  Summer 2016-Glidden Lodge Beach Resort


    While many of Lake Michigan’s sand beaches are underwater and/or filled with beach grass, Glidden Lodge Beach Resort’s beach has been rejuvenated in 2016 by a combination of storms and rising lake levels which removed the reeds and relocated sand all the way up to the grassy lawn area.

  If you or someone you know visited our beachfront condos in 2015 you may be hesitant to return due to the rising lake levels a large portion of our beach was under water!  Also since the water level was higher, the water lapped all the way up to the beach grass.

However, this year we are enjoying a wider, more expansive beach than we have had in the past several years and our guests couldn’t be happier!!!  Here are some of our recent guests’ comments:

“Wonderful!  Most beautiful views of Lake Michigan with beach access.  We couldn’t have chosen a better location.”

“Glidden Lodge is a perfect vacation destination.”

“This place continues to maintain it’s excellence year after year.
We feel so fortunate to have found you!”

“Thank you for again making our stay a delight.  The resort upgrades i.e. the new beach chairs, linens…etc
help make Glidden our favorite vacation spot.”

Admit it, you want to wrap yourself in these lush, new towels.

  If you are looking at a relaxing, beachfront vacation in a secluded location that is centrally located to all Door County has to offer – look no further – Glidden Lodge Beach Resort is your vacation destination.  Give us a call.  Your beach chair is waiting.

We saved you a seat!
