A very enjoyable weekend. Norma and Howie Glass were great hosts and very pleasant. This 1920's cottage with a beautiful view and spacious deck is very clean and well maintained. With a nice, friendly group of folks staying at this B&B, our trip was made all the better! Breakfasts were yummy too !

My wife and I were looking for a B&B in the Grand Haven area for a long weekend to celebrate our 20th anniversary....we found the Looking Glass Inn and were not disappointed.

My wife and I decided to spend our first wedding anniversary in Grand Haven. It was one of the best traveling experiences we've ever had! When we arrived Norma and Howie were outside sprucing up the outside. They the nicest, most genuine people we could've asked for. Besides having a comfy and clean room, and being next to the beach,...

This was also my first time staying at a B & B and it was wonderful. Our room was very clean and spacious. We faced the lake and the view from our room was awesome, especially at sunrise and sunset. The only thing that could make the stay better were the owners! What a marvelous couple Howie & Norma are....

Absolutely great house with a beautiful view on Michigan lake. Room was very neat, clean and beautifully decorated. I was traveling with my 7-year old grandson, and he did not want to leave the house. Very friendly atmosphere. Owner's hospitality was outstanding. Breakfast was served on the porch, and it made the breakfast even more enjoyable. I will definitely recommend...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Looking Glass Inn mid week and loved it. It's a B&B across the street from the beach in Grand Haven, situated up on a bluff. Access is by stairs (79, I think, easier than it sounds), or by a tram that serves their home. Not an issue at all. This provided...

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...

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...

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...
