The newly re-opening Looking Glass B & B is fresh and charmingly decorated and has delightful new owners. This morning I woke to views of the pinks and blues of dawn over Lake Michigan right from my bed. If only I could have captured that with my camera! Breakfast included freshly baked scones and shirred eggs in crispy ham shells....

Very cute place hidden away right by the beach. Cozy,peaceful, and great service! Can't beat the prices either! Oh and did I mention the free breakfast! Will be back again for sure. Can't find a better room for the price.

I ALMOST didn't book this B&B because I saw photos & worried that the view was just of a busy street & an ugly parking lot. Boy, was I glad that I changed my mind! The view was of a beautiful blue Lake Michigan with sandy beaches & the lighthouse in the background. Not to worry- the street in between...

My wife and I travelled to Grand Haven the week of August 22-26, 2016 and stayed at the Looking Glass Inn. This is our second visit, the first over 4 years ago. We were greeted by our hosts, Norma and Howie Glass. So many words to describe this couple. They are worth the stay. The Looking Glass Inn is about...

We stayed just one night but had a truly enjoyable experience! The hosts are very gracious and accommodating. Our room was very comfortable and inviting. Breakfast on the deck overlooking the lake was delicious and relaxing. Plenty to eat and the coffee was excellent! Highly recommend this B & B!

We had a great visit at The Looking Glass Inn. Howard and Norma are phenomenal hosts and treated our family well. The inn is impeccable -- great beds, nice bathrooms, comfortable common spaces. The deck overlooking Lake Michigan is large and picturesque. Norma, learning that our daughter had type 1 diabetes, provided sugar-free syrup at breakfast -- so thoughtful!! By...

So basically you're missing out on the amazingness that is the Grand Haven experience if you choose any other place to stay other than The Looking Glass. Norma & Howie are amazing and such great hosts!

We had two wonderful days at The Looking Glass. Rooms were very clean, comfortable and quiet! Norma prepared delicious breakfasts. Location perfect for touring Grand Haven. Loved the B&B experience. The house was built in 1927 and the trolley that took you up to the house, from street level, was installed in 1948. We could see the sunset from our...

Excellent property with wonderful hosts. Norma fixes a huge wonderful spread each AM while Howie keeps things running-like the rather critical trolley lift that did break while we were there and was fixed within hours. Beautiful views and great beach access. Try to get the front facing two rooms to be able to see the lake from your rooms. Highly...

This was our second stay with Howie & Norma and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The Looking Glass Inn offers a phenomenal view of Grand Haven Beach and Lake Michigan, and sunsets you can't put a price on. The breakfasts are delicious and the accommodations are beautiful.
