They made this a great time even with no snow and little happening. The courtyard smores was a nice touch. The service was top notch and they were so eager to please. This is our destination of choice.

We spent 3 nights at the Lilac and enjoyed EVERY MINUTE! The extras you provided were fantastic the breakfast was great and the way it was decorated downstairs just carried the theme of celebration. The hot dogs and smore's were great in the outside lobby and even made it more special that the proceeds went to the island school. It... More

Hi Kay, Thank you so much for this review! We loved getting the hotel open for everyone this Winter. Thanks to everyone's help, we raised over $250 for the Mackinac Island Public School from our Hot Dog Stand. We hope to be open again next New Year's 2015. Your positive feedback will help make that happen! Bart & Nikki More

I just loved the cute suite we got! It had a balcony overlooking the lake! It had beautiful flowers and great location! We had the top floor so we had no noise from surrounding hotels:) I would stay there again! Had a living space separate from the bedroom which was nice!

This awesome hotel, closed during the winter months, opened its doors and welcomed guests for the Christmas and New Year Holiday! What a treat! While not much else was open in this Winter Wonderland, the staff at the Lilac Tree made us feel like part of their family! 🎄 Rooms were well appointed, clean and we'll stocked! A complimentary breakfast... More

We stayed at the Lilac as well as another highly rated hotel on Mackinac Island. My family absolutely preferred the Lilac as its downtown location is much more accessible to shops, restaurants, and the Fort. The rooms were very colorful and we had enough space in the room sitting area to have an impromptu breakfast gathering with our family of... More

I did some looking around on trip advisor before I came to the conclusion to come to the Lilac. It was a great decision. The room was a good size and the bathroom was inviting. They also have really friendly staff. The Daughter that works at the counter "forgive me but I forgot her name for I'm writing this post... More

This was our fourth stay at the Lilac Tree. We spent two nights. New to us this year was being given cookies and milk before bed time. Nice touch. Having the two room balcony suite is perfect as we asked my brother and sister-in-Law to join us. There was lots of room and those who wanted to retire early felt... More

We loved the stay at Lilac Tree Suites & Spa! Arriving on a chilly weekend, awaiting was a friendly clerk at check-in, hot coffee and fresh Michigan apples. The hallway and room were beautifully decorated and the bedding proved to be very comfortable. Our room overlooked Main Street but noise was minimal. We loved the simple, but thoughtful turn-down service... More

We've been to Mackinaw Island many times but this was the first for The Lilac Tree. The room was a 'suite' and the price was very reasonable considering where you are. We took advantage of an off season 'deal' and weren't disappointed. It was the second week of October and things were quiet with many places a week or two... More

One suite has two queen beds in one room and one queen in another room with a large sitting area and a large bathroom between them.
