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

My wife and I recently stayed at the white lilac. I was extremely disappointed in the place. When you stay at a b&b you expect fancy, clean, and old finishes. Instead they have cheap decorations and finishes. The carpets have noticeable pee stains from pets and overall you don't feel like you are somewhere nice. The breakfast was also cheap,... More

My girlfriend and I recently spent a few days at the White Lilac and had a wonderful time. It's the second time we've stayed there and this visit was a great as the last one two years ago. Clean, charming and a great staff. We stayed in the "room on the top" which was great and had a large balcony.... More

My husband and I wanted a overnight retreat from our busy lives and picked this inn from the web site. We were not disappointed. It is truly a well kept, clean, and inviting place to stay. Our room even had a small balcony! The inviting little refreshment area on the 1st floor was a nice touch. They have a bulletin... More

My husband and I had such a great time! They accommodated our food allergies, place was clean, nicely located & the owners were super friendly. The coffee was delish - most B&Bs we have been to the coffee usually tastes like rusty water. We were well rested and refreshed! Thank you!
