After a very stressful day ( car breaking down on the NJ Turmpike), I was tempted to cancel my reservation. I'm so glad I didn't, this was the perfect location to relax and no better a place to get stranded. Mari and her staff are lovely, so gracious. My room was cozy and immaculate, just perfect. Beach passes and chairs... More

My husband and I spent a perfect weekend at the White Lilac in Mary greeted us with such warmth into this whimsical home. She quickly got a dinner reservation. That was perfect. Location is convent to everything. The beach was immaculate. Delicious breakfast each morning. We will be back

Reserved a 2 night stay. You can feel the warm and personal touch of this place as soon as you pull up. Parking spots assigned to your room. The flowers just welcome you to the beauty of this place. Mary greeted me and was so polite. Showed me around and to my room. My room was beautifully decorated and spotless.... More

The White Lilac rests alongside a large pond dotted with large, graceful white swans. We were greeted by Mari's and Lara's pleasant smiles that never faded throughout our three-night stay. The room with bath was decorative in a Victorian manner and comfortable. The ocean was only three blocks from the inn and stunningly smooth and easily accessible. A long boardwalk... More

The room was very spacious and comfortable. (Loved the fireplace!) Breakfasts were delicious and filling. Mari, the owner, was friendly and very willing to answer our questions about the house and the area. The house is convenient to town and the beach.

Have been going there for many years. The innkeeper Mari is great. She is up to date on all the local events. Her employees are very cheerful. This Inn is within walking distance of the town. It is a quiet town. It is not that far from Long Island.

The Inn was very warm and inviting, Mari the innkeeper was most helpful and made us feel right at home. Very elegant and relaxing atmosphere, even down to the choice of soft music playing. (Classical is my favorite) Will stay again next time we are in Spring Lake.

I recently stayed here with a friend as we were attending a wedding in the town. We really enjoyed our experience in the "Gatsby Suite" and at the Inn. While we didn't spend too much time there, we really enjoyed the space and staff was extremely friendly. Great breakfast post a night of partying was also a great bonus!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the white lilac. Mari, the Innkeeper was very warm and friendly and served a nice breakfast. room was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely go back. The only drawback was that it was a bit of a walk to get to anything.
