My mom and I were happy to find this Bed and Breakfast for a last minute overnight stay in Grand Haven. The views are probably among the best in town. It has a great, private location and parking. You are directly across from the beach and lighthouse. Downtown shopping is only a mile walk. Our room had plenty of space for both of us with a nice bathroom. Very clean! Breakfast was great! Our host, Brian, gave great recommendations for the area. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Fabulous weekend at Looking Glass! Brian and his family were amazing hosts...our “Water” room had a million dollar view (see photo!), the food was delicious, the house has wonderful amenities, and Brian offered many great local tips and recommendations for our weekend! We will definitely be back and loved the house and our hosts!

My wife and I returned to the Looking Glass B and B after a three year absence. Brian the new owner has made several upgrades to the property and it is beautiful. We request the Sand Room which faces the west and offers a great view of the lake. Brian prepares a wonderful breakfast that provides for a great start to check out Grand Haven. The deck has the best view of sunsets. You have a great oppportunity to meet new people and share conversations over breakfast or sitting on the deck. Parking and free wifi are on site for the guests. Thank you Brian for a great stay.

Rebecca, thank you for your email and great review. We appreciate you returning to stay at the Looking Glass again and are very glad you enjoyed all the updates and renovations. It has been a busy few years with changes and we still have some future plans. We are so glad that you enjoyed the breakfasts and deck as well. Meeting new people from around the country or world is still one of my favorite things about Bed & Breakfasts and its nice to hear guests appreciate it as well. Thanks again and we hope to see you again soon.

Initially we were disappointed as it seemed the pictures weren’t what we found. The room was small, fairly sparse. It didn’t have the amenities we enjoy. However, the view was amazing. We enjoyed quiet evenings on the deck enjoying beautiful sunsets with a glass of wine. The breakfasts were good, fairly basic. The stairway is long, good exercise! The very old lift worked fine if the stairs aren’t an option. Love the proximity to the beach, the views, but would like to see more comfort, books, magazines, blankets.

Joanna, thank you for staying with us and for your review. We are very glad that you enjoyed the view and the stay overall but are very sorry to hear that you were initially disappointed. We would love to hear what amenities you would like to see in the rooms as we definitely value guest feedback. We have recently added more movies, board/ card games, beach chairs/ umbrellas/ and towels because of guest feedback and are always looking for more recommendations. We do have a book area in our 3 seasons porch and keep a variety of magazines in the common spaces but will consider them for the rooms as well. Thank you again for your stay and review and hope to see you again sometime.

The home is amazing! Situated on top of a 6-story dune, the Looking Glass B&B is very homey and inviting. The views are spectacular. We really appreciated the extra amenities that were available such as beach chairs and beach towels! This was our kids' (ages 13 and 14) first B & B experience, and we couldn't have had a more perfect (Dunegrass) room. Brian was a friendly and accommodating host. Meals were delicious and there were always snacks and beverages available for us. We appreciated the selection of DVDs and family games, which were great in the evening!
