The Glen is very special. You feel it as soon as you turn off Durward's Glen Road. It's hard to imagine it is so close to the Interstate and the Dells because it's like being in a different world. Places like this just don't exist anymore. I can't say enough about the ambience and feeling you get here. Very healing. Exactly what we all need for refreshing ourselves - body and soul.
My wife and I have spent numerous days (and nights) at Durwards Glen. There is a mantle of peace and quiet that permits one to relax and renew your soul. We recommend it highly!
It's very private and provides both nature and holiness if you so desire.
Durward’s Glen is located in the heart of the Baraboo Range National Natural Landmark near Baraboo, Merrimac, Wisconsin Dells, and Portage.
