So first let me say that the property really is beautiful and the town of Grand Haven is a really fun place to visit. It's probably good that I spent 90% of my waking hours on this weekend trip either on the beach or in town. The house was really nice and I thought the little lift up the giant... More

Middle of February, in Michigan, during a snowstorm, got us thinking of a summer vacation near a lake. A first time bed and breakfast weekend stay sounded like a wonderful idea. We searched the internet and what we found was more than what we could ever imagine. The Looking Glass Inn located in Grand Haven. We made reservations and was... More

We could not have asked for a better place to stay for the first night of our Michigan trip. With its perch high up on a hill, the view of Lake Michigan, the pier and the lighthouse are nothing short of spectacular.Howie and Norma Glass were wonderful hosts, making us feel comfortable in their beautiful home. The rooms were tastefully... More

There could be no better location in this little town than the Looking Glass Inn. Situated at the top of a towering hill, the views of the lake are magnificent any time of the day. They have an array of games available to entertain at any hour and I LOVE playing games. Breakfast was pretty good. Sometimes too sweet (and... More

My fiance booked us a room at The Looking Glass Inn this summer to complete his surprise beach proposal. I had actually been staying in a different condo with my family and he was supposed to be eight hours away back home but little did I know he had a completely different plan!! My family and I had gone to... More

Recently spent two nights with Norma and Howie at their lovely B&B, the Looking Glass Inn. Can't beat the location or the hospitality. Norma's breakfasts are to die for and Howie is pure entertainment. Each morning the guests meet around the breakfast table and share their experiences from the day before, while Howie and Norma give ideas on what to... More

We loved our experience at The Looking Glass Inn! Howie and Norma were wonderful and gracious hosts, and their home was the perfect setting for our first experience on the Lake Michigan coast. We enjoyed our stay there very much. The sunset views from the deck gave us wonderful photo memories, and the delicious breakfasts and great conversations around the... More

It was our first time in Grand Haven, and since my wife and I are expecting our first child we wanted a relaxing, quiet get away. This is exactly what we got! The only reason that I give it 5 out of 5 stars is because 6 is not an option! The first thing we noticed upon arriving was that... More

The panoramic views of Lake Michigan make this BB a beautiful place to stay while visiting Grand Haven. Norma and Howie Glass are warm, welcoming and helped make our stay special. Their charming home has rooms that are clean, comfortable, and cutely decorated. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts served on the deck where the views of the lighthouse are fabulous. We... More

Great stay for a 2 night stay in beautiful Grand Haven. The Glass family was very warm and welcoming. A different and very tasty breakfast was served each morning. My wife and I were able to enjoy our breakfast on the front deck overlooking the beach, pier, and lake Michigan. I would highly recommend this B&B.
