My husband and I have stayed at the White Lilac Inn many times and have been so pleased with the accommodations as well as the friendliness and courtesy of the staff. The rooms are always very clean with a unique theme attached to each room. We always look forward to breakfast which always contains a creative combination of eggs/bacon or... More

The White Lilac Inn and Spring Lake offered the perfect respite after a stressful week. We escaped to the shore in the hopes of sitting on the beach, swimming and reading. It was cold and rainy all weekend so we never made it into the water. It did not matter. Our room (Room at the Top) was wonderful with a... More

I found the White Lilac Inn while searching online for a place to stay. I prefer B&B's to hotels since I like to escape to a more peaceful environment whenever I'm on vacation. The White Lilac Inn is the perfect escape! I stayed in the Bonnie Brae room on the third floor. The room was very quaint but totally accommodating.... More

My husband and I have spent two wonderful weekends at the White Lilac Inn and can't say enough about the lovely accommodations and personable staff. Last fall we reserved rooms with two other couples and found the inn's seaside location to be perfect for a stroll to the beach or bike ride through this quiet community on a crisp autumn... More

I recently stayed at the White Lilac Inn with my two college age daughters for an impromptu one-night visit & was comfortably accommodated in the Gatsby Suite. We have been exploring Spring Lake weekends for the past several summers & always seek out places that will give us an authentic summer experience. White Lilac Inn is one of those places...innkeeper... More

We stayed at the White Lilac Inn for two nights. I want to start by saying that we used to love the Sandpiper Inn in Spring Lake, and were so sorry that it closed. My comments are therefore in comparison to the Sandpiper. There were many positives about the White Lilac Inn. Mari and the staff were very nice and... More

We've been going down to Spring Lake for years and have stayed at the White Lilac Inn many times. Mari and her staff couldn't be nicer and accommodating! There's always a very nice breakfast, with excellent homemade muffins, coffee, some kind of French toast, pancakes, or omelet and we feel like it's our home away from home. If you need... More

We returned to the White Lilac Inn for our fourth visit. Although it was short, every moment was lovely--literally, from the moment we made the reservation to the moment we departed, everyone worked hard to be sure that we felt welcomed, attended to and pleased with our get-away. The breakfast was delicious and the ambience at the Inn was calming.... More

We stayed two nights at the White Lilac and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The owner and staff were attentive and welcoming…great hospitality all around. We loved Spring Lake…a relaxing gem of a seaside community. We walked to the ocean through tree shaded non-commercial neighborhoods. The Inn is tucked away in a serene corner of the world, couldn't have been a nicer... More

My sister and I stayed at the White Lilac last week and enjoyed it very much. The overall experience was excellent- from the early morning coffee on the porch to tucking into bed at night. Mari and staff are so welcoming and helpful with reservations, directions, beach badges, bicycles, beach chairs. I will return with my husband later in the... More
