We stayed again at the wonderful White Lilac Inn in Spring Lake, NJ, and, as always, the staff was cheery, helpful and delightful. The breakfast was outstanding and creative, as always, and the ambiance was perfect. We love staying with Mari at the White Lilac and have been back numerous times over the years. Three cheers to the best B&B... More

White Lilac Inn is my favorite vacation retreat destination on the east coast. It is like booking a massage for your spirit! As soon as you step through the doors of the Inn all of your needs are attended to. Mari is warm and attentive without making you feel like you're at camp! Everything from bathrobes to beach towels to... More

I have been vacationing in Spring Lake for the last 3 summers, and I will never return to the White Lilac Inn. The staff is the main reason I will never return. They were insulting and rude. My room was incredibly small and the rate was over $300 a night. I would reccommend booking early and staying at any of... More

Very friendly and nice. I... More

Wanting a quick getaway to the Jersey Shore, I made reservations at the charming White Lilac Inn in beautiful Spring Lake, NJ. Mari, the innkeeper of this lovely bed and breakfast made us feel welcomed, providing us with lots of info on activities and restaurants in the area and giving us a tour of the inn. The 3 story building... More

My wife and I just returned after 5 nights at the Inn, in fact we only booked 4 nights but after the first night there we wanted to stay as long as we could but alas could only stay one more day due to other things we had to do. The Inn is so tastefully decorated by Mari and feels... More

We booked the Mary Chess Room on the day of our trip and was greeted by Mary as soon as we entered the inn. She made us feel right at home during our entire stay. She was very hospitable with food, drinks, and the free bikes in the shed that we could use the ride around the town. We wanted... More

This Inn is lovely! The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the innkeeper was a doll. We have no complaints about our stay at the Lilac Inn. Everything was readily available as in beach chairs, towels, bikes, novels to read, dvds, and snacks galore! A wonderful experience.. The only downside was the hefty price tag. We stayed in the "studio". It... More

White Lilac Inn is, in my opinion, one of the best Bed and Breakfasts down the Jersey Shore! Mari, the hostess, is such a nice woman, and her Inn is warm, charming, and beautiful down to every detail. We stayed in the "Bonnie Brae" room on the 3rd floor. Small, but cozy, this room met our needs. It was immaculate... More

The perfect relaxing weekend. We took full advantage of our jacuzzi tub and big comfy bed. My husband really enjoyed the early bird coffee on the wrap around porch, allowing me to sleep in! The staff was helpful making diner reservations for us and the rooms very clean and comfortable. The little extras will definitely bring us back for another... More
