  Time is flying and 2008 is almost gone.  New Years is upon us and we still have availability at Glidden for you to ring in the New Year while enjoying lovely accomodations on the shore of Lake Michigan.  The waves are still crashing against the shore and we do have some ice shelves but it is always wonderful to see the water all year round.   There are New Year’s and New Year’s Eve activities happening around Door County.  Enjoy dinner over at the tempting Donny’s Glidden Lodge Restaurant.  Go out for the night or stay inside your nicely appointed suite and spend a relaxing time celebrating the New Year.
