What a wonderful weekend we had! Norma and Howie are outstanding and offer great service to their guests. Norma made us feel right at home as soon as we arrived and we can not say enough about her delicious breakfasts. The rooms are super clean and the house is located across from the lake. The inn is within walking distance... More

The view of Lake Michigan from the deck of the Looking Glass Inn was gorgeous. The inn is located directly across the street from both the state and city beaches. We were able to walk everywhere---to the beach, to the boardwalk and lighthouse, and to dinner in the evening. The hosts were most gracious and the breakfasts were yummy.

My son and I were looking forward to a modest weekend holiday. We had not made plans months in advance, as is usually necessary to find anything good close to the beach. But, we both had time off and the weather was predicted to be good. There was a vacancy for one room at this B & B. We had... More

A bed and breakfast on the beach is not easy to find, but we found Looking Glass here on TA. Lovely in every way but mainly because the owners, Norma and Howie, go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. The views are spectacular. We could wake up every morning and watch the skies lighten... More

We were visiting Grand Haven to meet up with friends and family and had originally booked a room at a local hotel. On a whim, we researched Bed and Breakfasts in Grand Haven and found the Looking Glass Inn. Changing reservations turned out to be a great decision. Howie and Norma Glass are the proprietors and ensured that our stay... More

After reviewing the bed and breakfast options, I chose the Looking Glass Inn and it was the perfect choice for us. Celebrating our 38th wedding anniversary there was relaxing and enjoyable. Especially the view from the deck each morning...so beautiful! The house is an older, nicely remodeled 3 level home high on a hill with gorgeous views and a trolley... More

I wanted to go to a beach setting for my birthday but did not want to take a day to travel to the East Coast or Florida.
