We have stayed at a number of bed & breakfast places and this one is a great place to stay in Spring Lake, NJ. The location is great too!! It's not far from the town of Spring Lake with its shops and restaurants or the beach. The town and the beach are actually within walking distance from the Inn, if... More

The White Lilac Inn is a terrific choice for a stay at the Jersey Shore. It's a respite from a busy, hectic life...quiet, eminently comfortable, charming, impecably clean and convenient to the beach or "downtown" Spring Lake. Not in the heart of town, but that's what makes it inviting. Mari, the innkeeper, has created a variety of guest rooms, each... More

A copy of Nancy Drew's Mystery at the Lilac Inn sitting on a table at the top of the stairs explained it all--I was now re-entering an era that understood the word, relaxation: A whitewashed porch with rockers to languish, a warm and welcoming parlor with couches and armchairs and footstools. Breakfast on the sun porch. Mystery solved--White Lilac Inn... More

I have stayed at many bed & breakfasts along the east coast and in California. This is an absolutely great place at the Jersey Shore. It's easy to find, and it's a pleasant walk to the beach and into the quaint town of Spring Lake. You can even take a ride with one of the Inn's bikes. Mari and her... More

This was our first time staying at a B&B; we were not entirely sure how it would compare to a traditional hotel. We were absolutely amazed at the service provided by the proprietor, Mari Kennelly, and her staff. We were greeted pleasantly upon our arrival and were given a tour of the home along with a historical narrative. The room... More
