The Inn was very warm and inviting, Mari the innkeeper was most helpful and made us feel right at home. Very elegant and relaxing atmosphere, even down to the choice of soft music playing. (Classical is my favorite) Will stay again next time we are in Spring Lake.

I recently stayed here with a friend as we were attending a wedding in the town. We really enjoyed our experience in the "Gatsby Suite" and at the Inn. While we didn't spend too much time there, we really enjoyed the space and staff was extremely friendly. Great breakfast post a night of partying was also a great bonus!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the white lilac. Mari, the Innkeeper was very warm and friendly and served a nice breakfast. room was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely go back. The only drawback was that it was a bit of a walk to get to anything.

We've had the opportunity to stay at numerous B&B's over the years. Mari, the host at White Lilac Inn, knows the perfect balance between being available to her guests, and blending in to the background and allowing her guests to be alone. Some B&B hosts never seem to know when to back off. While we didn't hear any other guests,... More

I recently stayed at the White Lilac Inn to celebrate my birthday with family. Since the Inn came highly recommended by a close friend of mine, we rented two rooms. I came in with high expectations, which were actually exceeded. We had an amazing stay from start to finish. Mari was so warm and welcoming. We were pleased to note... More

The bed and breakfast is kept very clean. The meals and waitress service were excellent. The Victorian decorations were very nice. The town is very quaint, the beach in walking distance. It's a quiet getaway. I highly recommend this B&B has I have gone several times.

The White Lilac Inn is our "go to" destination when we want quiet privacy coupled with warm and wonderful attention by a hostess who understands when to share information and when to let you find your own way. Mari is the perfect innkeeper-she never fails to let us know when something new or special is happening in town and checks... More

We have stayed a couple of times at this charming B&B and have absolutely enjoyed our stay each time. This lovely inn/b&b is a short walk from thr ocean and the lake.

Last Tuesday my wife and I spent a wonderful overnight at the White Lilac Inn! The accommodations were very comfortable and extremely clean. Being only a few blocks from the ocean made it a perfect location especially for a summer stay. Mari the innkeeper was a very gracious host! I would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful old inn!... More

Quiet room which was small but very clean. The breakfast was very good and the staff were helpful as well. Location is about a half mile from Spring Lake beach and there are bikes you can use to get there. Felt we had decent privacy. Highly recommended.
