Spend some time at our Lake Michigan Beach this winter!

Our Door County beach in winter is as breathtaking as it is in summer...only colder!

Our Door County beach in winter is as breathtaking as it is in summer…only colder!

At Glidden Lodge Beach Resort, we realize that ‘winter’ and ‘beach’ may not summon as many happy thoughts as ‘summer’ and ‘beach’ – but we’d love for you to come visit us so we can change that perception!

Our 700′ of Lake Michigan beach frontage has as much charm in winter as it does in summer. Same beautiful beach. Same gorgeous vistas at sunrise and sunset.

Add to it the fact that STAYING at Glidden Lodge in winter costs less than summer – we have MANY packages that began on November 1. You can check them out here.

Finally, please download our eBook – A Door County Beach in Winter and get a look at the outstanding off-season scenery at our Lake Michigan Beach Front Resort!

A beautiful place to watch all phases of the moon!!!

supermoon-nov-14-2016

We are about to experience a spectacular sight tonight with the largest super moon since 1948.
Look up your moonrise time here so that you can be sure not to miss the moon at the beginning
of sunset.  It will be beautiful shining  on Lake Michigan!

But don’t worry if you aren’t here with us tonight to experience this moonrise, because Glidden
Lodge Beach Resort is the perfect place to watch all phases of the moon at any time of the year!

Come enjoy the night sky and the twinkling stars.  We are away from it all so you can see so
many more stars and constellations than you can in the city.  And this is just another way to
enjoy your time when you book a stay with us!

Outstanding nearby hikes: Shivering Sands Preserve

When you stay at Glidden Lodge Beach Resort, you are within 10 miles of some of Door County’s most beautiful outdoor destinations including Cave Point, Whitefish Dunes and Clark Lake.

However, just down the road from our beautiful Lake Michigan beachfront resort is Shivering Sands, a lesser known destination whose pristine wetlands are under the watchful eye of The Nature Conservancy. From their website:

The 3,400-acre Shivering Sands wetland complex encompasses three lakes, several streams and springs, forested sand dunes, lowland conifer forest, sedge meadows and fens. It is rich in rare plant life and is home to many birds, mammals, frogs and other wildlife.

Why did The Nature Conservancy decide to purchase acreage at Shivering Sands:

Located on Lake Michigan just north of Sturgeon Bay, the variety of plant communities at Shivering Sands Preserve provides excellent habitat for several rare plants and myriad wildlife and is exceptional in both size and diversity.

Details on hiking Shivering Sands:

There is a relatively flat, 1-mile loop walking trail, which can sometimes be wet in spots so wear appropriate footwear. Mosquitoes can be abundant in early summer, so repellent and long pants/sleeves are a good idea.

Contact the Conservancy office at 242 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay for more information or call (920-743-8695).

Book some time at Glidden Lodge Beach Resort so you can discover one of the Midwest’s most important wetland right here within walking distance of of your Lake Michigan beachfront suite!

About 5 miles from Glidden Lodge Beach Resort in Door County is a prolific example of the Niagara Escarpment. What is this awesome formation that has its origins near Niagara Falls in New York state?

From Wikipedia:

The Niagara Escarpment is a long escarpment, or cuesta, in the United States and Canada that runs predominantly east/west from New York, through Ontario, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Illinois. It is composed of the Lockport geological formation of Silurian age, and is similar to the Onondaga geological formation, which runs parallel to it and just to the south, through western New York and southern Ontario. The escarpment is most famous as the cliff over which the Niagara River plunges at Niagara Falls, for which it is named.

The Niagara Escarpment is the most prominent of several escarpments formed in the bedrock of the Great Lakes Basin.
