From the moment we arrived on Memorial Day, we felt right at home. Norma was kind enough to have us settle in before giving us the grand tour of the inn. The B&B was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We highly recommend this inn for your trip to Grand Haven.

We were not disappointed at this Bed and Breakfast. Norma and Howie were great hosts and the deck was a fabulous place to watch the sun set. Close to the Grand Haven State Park Beach and the trolley up he hill is worth the visit. Excellent breakfast (served buffet style) with plenty to eat and drink. We ate outside on...

As others have already mentioned, the breakfasts were quite delicious. The rooms were very clean and the house was charming. Parking was a breeze, and walking to the beach was quick and easy. The hosts were amazing, and we really enjoyed our brief time getting to know them. It's been a few days, and tonight our 2-year-old asked, "Where's Howie?"...

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...

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...

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.
