Anniversary Weekend

5 on September 10, 2012

Found the white lilac online and was most pleasatly surprised when we arrived. Beautiful house in a quite neighborhood. Was greated by the owner Mari and her sweet dog, buddy. We stayed in the Gatsby's Getaway room. Large room with an amazing jacuzzi tub! Delicious breakfast in the sunporch was the perfect start to our days. Close to the beach and downtown Spring Lake. The staff were all friendly and knowledgeable about the local sites and restaurants. We will definitely be back for another stay at the White lilac!!!


Wonderful Stay

3.8 on July 09, 2012

We had an amazing time while visiting the White Lilac Inn. The staff was so accommodating and helpful, the room and bathrooms were both very nice/clean and the bed was very comfortable.


Serenity at its Best!

Serenity at it Best...Wonderful Inn, Quaint, quiet,relaxing, Wonderful Breakfast,Caring and Friendly Staff....Clean Rooms...everything you expect from a B&B and More..Beautiful location...Lake right across the Street...Shopping on Third Avenue...Whos on Third for lunch , Beautiful Park with two Bridges...romantic and peaceful......


Love this place .. Third visit .. Peaceful, clean, relaxing, at home

4.8 on June 08, 2011

My husband and I spent our 3rd wonderful weekend here to celebrate my June birthday and to relax after a busy week. The Inn is beautifully decorated, very homey, bright, and clean, with soft music playing and sweets awaiting from a day enjoying the beach or reservoir. Private and comfortable, always a treat. Go!


Weekend Getaway

3.0 on August 09, 2010

Beautifully decorated, quiet location. Breakfasts were very ordinary and unimaginative for this type of lodging. Those who stay at B & B's when traveling are usually pleasantly surprised by gourmet breakfasts. Innkeeper should probably think a bit more gourmet to go along with an otherwise pleasant lodging experience.


a trip back in time

3.8 on June 14, 2010

the White Lilac inn is absolutely beautiful and filled with beautiful antiques. the room was exceptionally clean and pleasant and Mari and her staff were gracious and accommodated our special diet. the inn is on a quiet block right of the lake.

White Lilac Inn Getaway

5 on August 14, 2009

The Inn is charming and spacious. The Inn Keeper ( Mari) and her staff are warm, attentive and professional. They really make you feel at home. Breakfasts are absolutely delicious in the Garden Room. We very much enjoyed our stay with the private balcony and double Jacuzzi.


Outstanding B&B

4.8 on August 13, 2009

We have stayed at the White Lilac for about 7 years, and we hope to continue this yearly escape. Every room is decorated superbly, the rooms are comfortable and spotless, and the food is great. Mari is gracious and extremely knowledged host. She can answer any question with knowledge and with a very personal touch for each guest. The town is charming, and, of course, the gorgeous beach a few blocks away makes for a perfect getaway. The White Lilac provides beach chairs, towels, bikes--no need to bring anything except a desire to relax. We can't wait to return. Mr. & Mrs. G. Hnath, NJ


A wondeful get-away!

4.8 on August 04, 2009

A tranquil setting, tastefully decorated and thoughtful amenities (beach towels, bikes, beach passes, umbrellas, etc.) make it the perfect get-away. The staff is wonderful and accommodating. I have stayed there three times and look forward to going back again in the future. I highly recommend.
