Wow, this place is a gem! Great location with fantastic views in the commons areas and large deck. We stayed in the Sand room which had a lighthouse and beach views right from the bed. The room was very clean and comfortable with nice bedding and was very quiet for sleeping. Brian was a great host with good recommendations for restaurants and he makes a great breakfast. We stayed in early May so there was very light traffic in the big park across the street. You can walk to restaurants and shopping and access the beach and lighthouse easily. We will definitely stay here again.

Beth and Steve, thank you so much for your recent stay with us. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and loved our location and views. It's definitely different here in the shoulder or offseason than it is in the season and what you give up in weather, you gain in traffic and mostly get the beach to yourself. The Sand Room is our most popular room for exactly the reasons you mentioned. Y Thank you again for your stay and we look forward to your return.

Property's Favorite Review
I had a business trip and after 3+ months of staying at home due to COVID-19, I decided to take my wife and daughters along. The room was very nice. The view from the deck is better. Brian took great care to see that we had everything we needed for the girls to enjoy themselves at the beach while I was working. I loved having my coffee on the deck overlooking lake Michigan. What a pleasant place to stay.

Looking Glass was so amazing! The town is beautiful. The staff was so friendly and the house had the most amazing view! Breakfast and coffee on the deck while looking at a great view was perfect for a long weekend! I would definitely come back here in the future!

We were looking for a place to stay for Tulip Time but nothing caught our eye in Holland. We decided to expand our search to nearby towns and that's how we found the Looking Glass Beachfront Inn. The location is amazing. Not only it's around 30min from the festival, but also it has a lovely view of the beach in Grand Haven, it's within walking distance to several restaurants, and the pier. We weren't able to make it for the regular check in, but Brian made it so easy to do a self check in for us. And let's not forget about the breakfasts offered there! Such a treat. Definitely would want to come back there again.

Thank you so much for your recent stay with us during Tulip Festival. We get a lot of people for that since its so close but you are away from the Holland area. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the location we have near the beach and downtown. We are glad you liked the self check in process after check in time and it gives the guest the flexibility to take their time getting here. Thanks again for your stay and we hope you return again sometime in the future.

My daughter and I got away for a relaxing night at Looking Glass Beachfront Inn after spending the day at the Tulip Festival. Our room was beautiful! We thought the trolley outside was a fun and convenient touch. It of course was awesome to be able to see the water and sunset out our window! Breakfast was very yummy!

Thank you so much for your great review and for staying with us. We are so glad to hear that you had a great stay and had a relaxing time while in Grand Haven and visiting the Tulip Festival. That is what it is all about! We love having the trolley and its as useful as it is historic being originally put in back in 1948. We are also very glad you enjoyed breakfast and hope to have you visit us again in the future. Thanks again.
