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

Walking into the White Lilac Inn after a long, very hot day, we were greeted by Mari and welcomed with a short tour of the Inn and explanations of where to find whatever we needed for our stay. Fresh cookies were offered, along with refreshments in the refrigerator if we were thirsty. Our room was comfortably cool and the bed... More

I'm disappointed because I will never stay at what I'm sure is a very nice B&B. I made a reservation for mid-September for 3 nights (there was only one other reservation on the calendar) and less than 72 hours later, I called and left a message that I had to cancel because I accepted a new job. I asked if... More

Phyllis, Yes I am sorry will will miss out on having you stay with us. We are charged by our credit card processing both ways (taking a deposit and returning a deposit) that is why we have the service charge. Our Inn is small and we try not to accept reservations too far in advance. We do start taking reservations... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway for my birthday. What a lovely time we had at the White Lilac Inn. We enjoyed ourselves from the moment we arrived to the moment we sadly had to leave. The B and B is pretty, cozy, clean and quiet. Mari is warm and knowledgeable. Cant wait to go back!

I recently tried out this B&B with a friend of mine. I will say that the owner of the B&B is very nice and also allows you to do your own thing. The place was clean, beds were comfortable and we did have a porch outside our room - which was quite nice. Breakfast was tasty and the staff was... More

My husband and I came for our 20th anniversary. It was an absolutely beautiful bed and breakfast. Rooms were clean and Mari was very friendly and very willing to make our stay the absolute best. The breakfast was beyond delicious. What a treat! I would highly recommend this B&B.

My husband & I had the most relaxing 3 days. Mary, the Innkeeper was so informative on all the events going on every day and tips on great restaurants. We have been going to Spring Lake for 24 years and this year we ate at two different restaurants and we thought we hit them all.

While we weren't sure about picking a Bed and Breakfast when making arrangements, I can honestly say that the White Lilac Inn was a great choice and a pleasure to stay at. The Inn is kept wonderfully and the Innkeeper (Mari) was so nice and made you feel right at home. The beach was just walking distance from the Inn... More

The staff at White Lilac Inn are all very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I have stayed at the White Lilac Inn a few times and every room is very clean. It is a very quaint Inn with a lot of history and artifacts from the time. It is within walking distance from town as well as the beach... More
