The White Lilac was charming & very clean. Everyone there was very helpful! Breakfasts were great! The only downside is that is close to the railroad tracks so it's hard to sleep in! Would stay there again!!

The White Lilac Inn is a handsome victorian home that's very well taken care of, and is chock full of interesting knickknacks and antique items. You can't walk through a room without looking at and studying Mari's (the proprietor) many treasures. Mari is also a wonderful, pleasant host who offers a lot of detail about the immediate area's many interesting... More

We visited the White Lilac Inn as we were attending a Wedding in the area. We found the hospitality at The White Lilac Inn to be first class. The Innkeeper, Mari Kennelly, is a trove of local knowledge. The food and accommodations met, indeed exceeded, our expectations. We also enjoyed the location - we found the town and surrounding area... More

We had a lovely stay at White Lilac Inn. Mari was hospitable and friendly, helping us with dinner reservations and exploring ideas. We enjoyed the porch each afternoon. Our breakfasts were superb. Early morning coffee was available. I would love to do a return visit.

Once again a beautiful and delightful stay with our wonderful innkeeper Marie. Try the White Lilac Suite-it doesn't get any better-from the delicious breakfast to the private terrace! Ride the free bicycles, enjoy the boardwalk and the pristine beach and fine dining at the many local restaurants. Diane and Basil

Great innkeeper and wonderful staff. Loved this bed and breakfast. Liked the quaint and beautiful town of Spring Lake. This inn has lovely rooms. They provided bicycles and tags for the fantastic beach of Spring Lake. We had a chance to stay in two rooms due to a slight problem of plumbing that was resolved the next day. We loved... More

Overall, our stay was great - no issues with parking, proximity to the beach, collecting beach passes/towels, checking in/out, breakfast etc. The room was a touch small (Jessica's Garden), so we ended up having to leave some suitcases in the car. Overall - great house and service!

This was a perfect mini getaway for my husband and me. It is always like going home. Mari, our innkeeper, is knowledgeable and very friendly. The rooms are clean and welcoming. There are several terrific restaurants nearby. Of course, the beach is our favorite.
