Glidden Lodge Resort’s beachfront location continually lures guests to the Lake Michigan shore. Spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom condo units include gas fireplaces; whirlpool tubs; full kitchens; and sliding glass doors leading to patios or the lake. Families take full advantage of the indoor pool and hot tub, the shallow lake water and the picnic tables.
Resort package deals are the way to go; they include extras like craft store gift certificates, golfing at Horseshoe Bay, spa packages at Saguaro Day Spa, state park admission, wine tasting or winter trolley tours. The broad beaches of Whitefish Dunes State Park and the rugged shore of Cave Point County Park are both within a five-minute drive—each beautiful in the summer, but equally attractive in winter when Whitefish grooms 9 miles of trails and fantastic icicles hang from the caves.
Visitors frequent historic Danny’s Glidden Lodge Restaurant next door for romantic dinners. Afterward, open the windows to let the sounds of the Great Lake surf lull you to peaceful sleep. Rates run $140 to $255 in the winter; $240 to $395 during the summer season.
