The Looking Glass Inn is a fantastic getaway in Grand Haven, with an amazing view of Lake Michigan, delicious food, and two outstanding owners in Norma and Howie. The room was very comfortable and clean, with a beautful updated private bath. We were there to celebrate our anniversary and found Norma and Howie to be so welcoming and helpful when... More

Enjoy an awesome view while staying at this B&B. Howie and Norma are very friendly and accommodating. Their breakfasts are delicious. We stayed over Labor day weekend and loved being able to just walk across the street to the beach while everyone else was looking for a parking spot.

Friendly people with a house having a super view of lake and beach. Lake noise is stunning via the windows and surrounding area. Bed and breakfast is located up high on a sand dune which affords the panoramic view .

Norma and Howie are the friendly owners of this B&B who really love what they do. I spent four days here with my husband and two young children during the first week of September. The location is ideal, right across the street from the beach, with a beautiful view to be taken in while enjoying the delicious daily breakfast. Norma... More

We stayed at the Looking Glass Inn in late July '15. Like every other review states, the views from the deck were second to none. We enjoyed just relaxing there or having our meals on the deck. The rooms, while not large, were very clean and welcoming. The owners, Norma & Howie, really make everyone feel at home. The breakfast... More

This is a great place! Great couple that run it! Rooms are small but very clean! They serve a great breakfast, and the view is amazing! I think no matter the time of year you visit you will never tire of the view.

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.

Our hosts were very accommodating with our late arrival,and provided a delicious and satisfying breakfast every morning. The view of the lake is spectacular but the town center is a bit of a...
