The Beach is Waiting…

It’s been over 6 months since the beach has enjoyed toes on it’s sand, sand shovels and buckets, and sunbathers.  It is getting lonely.
The beach loungers and chairs are being washed and prepared for another season of fun in the sun.  By Memorial Day weekend the
gas grills, beach chairs, volleyball and tennis nets will be up and ready.  Will you be ready?
ENJOY SPRING RATES LONGER IN 2017!  The spring rates run through 6/15/17.  Therefore you can come and enjoy nice weather
and get quite a deal on your rate.  Remember we offer the Return Guest, Senior Discount, and midweek discounts through June 15th.
Don’t delay make your reservation.  Put your toes in the sand, build a sandcastle, catch some rays…  YOU DESERVE IT!!!

“A picture is worth a thousand words.”  And if that is the case what can these pictures tell us?

Glidden Lodge Beach Resort invites you to come and visit our beautiful, secluded waterfront resort.  Rest as the waves roll ashore.  Walk along the beach and watch the beauty of a Door County sunrise!  Check out our neighboring treasures at Whitefish Dunes State Park, Cave Point County Park, or Shivering Sands Preserve to share a quiet moment with nature.

You can enjoy the warm Spring weather yet still get the off-season prices PLUS you can take advantage of our SPRING FLING SPECIAL – stay 3 nights for the price of 2!  We are still at almost the lowest prices of the year.  It’s quiet, the weather is warming up, and you deserve a break!

Call (888)281-1127 to reserve your spring get away before spring rates and spring blossoms are gone!

A Fond Farewell to the Glidden Lodge Dock

It’s hard to believe that next time you stop in or drive by you will not see the old pier between Glidden Lodge Beach Resort and Donny’s Glidden Lodge Restaurant.  It was a difficult but necessary decision to remove the dock as it was breaking down after years and years of Lake Michigan winds and waves.  It was a steadfast landmark that people saw over the years as they came as children and as years went by they brought their children and so on.  But as they say there is a time for everything, and it was time to let this historic landmark go.  She helped break the waves along our shoreline, she was a walkway for lovers, she held wedding parties, and little kids who first cast their line in Lake Michigan for the first time.  She will be missed.
Come out and visit us.  See for yourself how the shoreline looks.  It still is beautiful and the beach is calling your name.

Winter Beach Vacation Reason #4: EMBARK ON WINTER NATURE CRAWL

There are so many reasons to take a winter beach vacation at Door County’s Glidden Lodge Beach Resort, so we’re going to lay them out one-at-a-time this week.

Reason Number Four: Embark on a winter nature crawl!

Our resort is close to some of Door County’s favorite outdoor destinations! Places like Cave Point, Whitefish Dunes State Park, Shivering Sands Nature Preserve (a short walk down the road) and our own gorgeous beachfront (see below). Plus the incredible Niagara Escarpment surrounds our grounds and much of northern Door County. We suggest spending some time at our gorgeous Lake Michigan beachfront resort in your own luxury condominium.

Step One: Spend 5 minutes staring at this photo

Step Two: Breakaway from from your daily routines and contact us (our winter rates are amazing). Then make a reservation to spend some time in Door County’s Great outdoors!

And remember: Spending time outside – even in winter – is good for your health!
