We stayed in the delightful Room at the Top, with a large balcony with table and chairs and chaise lounges. Everything about the Inn is perfect, including Mari, the owner. When I became ill, she even arranged for someone to take me to the pharmacy. A convenient location, delicious breakfasts, warm and congenial atmosphere-what more could you want! We are... More

Summer winding down, and didn't want to miss a Spring Lake visit! My wife and I both love the White Lilac, and hope to be returning regularly. All the amenities we could hope for, in addition to the quiet and serenity. Breakfasts were sensational, and the room was spotless and very comfortable. Can't wait to return!

I loved our stay. My boyfriend and I went down to Spring Lake for his birthday and beach getaway for the weekend. We stayed in Jessica's Garden. It was hot weekend and the room was always nice and cold. We were a few blocks from the beach, in the quieter part of an already quiet town. We really liked that.... More

Very relaxing B&B located away from the beach on a quiet street near Wreck Pond. The Innkeeper is very accommodating providing great service to her guests. Breakfast were very good and ample. Nice sitting areas inside and a large porch to sit at and enjoy outside.

The White Lilac Inn was a suitable place to stay for a long weekend away from our children. It's about 4 1/2 blocks to the beach. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. We stayed in the Mary Chess. We had a TV that was real tiny for when we wanted to watch a movie. Not... More

This was our first b and b. We liked the experience so much, we are looking forward to staying in more b and b's in the future. The house is well over a hundred years old, but very well maintained. It was a welcome break from the boring sameness of chain-hotel rooms and layouts. The weather was terrible when we... More

We have been going to the White Lilac Inn for quite a few years & it's always a very comfortable stay. Mari, Buddy, Michele, Laura & the rest of the staff are very attentive and always give you a big welcome back. The coffee, muffins & breakfast is always delicious & when you return from a hot day on the... More

The inn was quaint and pleasant. The rooms were small, but comfortable. The location was perfect, only a few blocks from Spring Lake beach. The inn had bikes available to ride to the beach...nice touch. The only real negative were the breakfasts...not too impressed. However, snacks were available in the kitchen.

Although my husband and I were only there one night, it was a wonderful night! We tried for a second night, but unfortunately all the rooms were full. I will be sure to do a better job at planning ahead for our next trip to spring lake. We had the roof top room with a large private balcony and whirlpool... More

This is our 3rd visit to the White Lilac Inn and it continues to be our choice of B&B's at the Jersey Shore. The place is immaculate. Mari, the innkeeper is very welcoming and provides a good amount of information about the area and things to do. They have bikes for use and beach towels and badges are provided. Breakfast... More
