Lilac Tree Suites & Spa
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Mackinac Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 September 2012

From the moment we caught our first glimpse of the Lilac Tree on the Main Street of Mackinac Island, we knew that we were in for a wonderful Island experience. The cottage style decor, the qualify amenities, and the friendly, helpful staff made our stay at the Lilac Tree most enjoyable. Located in the middle of Main Street, a short walk from the ferry docks, The Lilac Tree is a great value, with cozy suites and comfortable beds. We are looking forward to another stay at The Lilac Tree.

From the minute we arrived at the dock we knew this would be special. Archie met us at the dock and took all our luggage. As we were walking to the hotel, approx a block, we saw Archie ride past with all our luggage on a bike, it was fun to see. Hotel check in was easy and the room they were originally going to give us was not ready so they moved us up a floor. The balcony room was great, getting to watch all the hustle and bustle on the street was entertaining. It was wonderful having the two rooms, When one person wants to go to sleep you have the ability of being able to sit in the living room without waking them. My daughter was surprised when the one night there was a knock on our door and they were there with milk and cookies. An unexpected treat. Would definitely stay at the Lilac Tree again.

My family and I really enjoyed our night at Lilac Tree Suites. It was just a short walk from the ferry dock. We arrived around noon and our room was not yet ready. They encouraged us to leave our luggage, there, but it just sat in the small lobby along with several other families luggage. A room for storing luggage would have been nice, but I suppose on a small island space is at a premium. The staff was very friendly and helpful at recommending places to visit. The Lilac has reciprocity with the Chippewa, so we were able to use the 25 person hot tub there. When we went it was 23 small children and two adults, and I saw an older couple leave after five minutes muttering about how disappointed they were (the water was also not particularly hot). I think if you are looking for a romantic weekend, it's better to wait until the kids are back in school In any case, we liked the suite with a large bedroom with two queen beds and a sitting room. The decor was a bit too flowery for my taste, but I'm sure my mother-in-law would have loved it (I'm not complaining because when you make a last minute reservation at a place called the Lilac, you pretty much know what you're getting yourself into). I enjoyed grabbing a beer at the nearby Pink Pony. I also had a really good massage by Chelsea at the spa. This is a very solid hotel on the island!

This hotel had nice size rooms and was very quiet even though it is right in the middle of downtown. The hotel offers service to all the shuttles. The staff was very accomodating, and not over bearing. We did try to get into the Chippewa hotel which has lake view rooms and the Pink Pony lounge. We enjoyed every moment of our stay.

The Lilac Tree is the perfect hotel. Within walking distance to shops, restaurants, carriage tours, Fort Mackinac and even the Grand Hotel. Arnolds Ferry is right around the corner. Very convenient. Everyone at the Lilac was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and beautifully decorated. The balcony overlooked Main Street and was a nice place to sit and enjoy a cold beverage after a long day of sightseeing. We also enjoyed a wonderful massage and facial at the spa before heading home. A perfect way to end a perfect vacation. Keep up the good work Lilac Tree!

Room Tip: We chose a top floor suite with a balcony facing Main Street, not too near the elevator for less noi...
