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 romantic and memorable weekend!

A lovely house, but compared to others in Spring Lake very overpriced. The rooms are nice, and the balconies a plus, but the view is non existent. It's several blocks from the beach, and right next to the railroad. The breakfast was average at best. There are far better places to stay for less in Spring Lake, and for far more reasonable prices.

We highly recommend the White Lilac Inn for a relaxing getaway. My fiance and I needed some time away and this B&B had it all. Lovely furnishings, decor, flowers, grounds, location, lovingly prepared breakfasts. Aces all around. Don't hesitate, Mari will welcome you warmly .and suggest local "things to do" .. We will go back, and make it a tradition.

We stayed in the Victorian Treasure suite at White Lilac Inn for a long sunny weekend in September. The suite is beautiful, with two ambiance fireplaces, a private 2nd floor porch, a jacuzzi tub for two, comfortable bed and plenty of romantic charm. We took complete advantage of the optional (at no extra charge) room service breakfast offered to Suite guests at a very civilized 9:45 AM. The breakfasts were very good and varied each day.

Mari, the innkeeper, is an excellent host and provided several personalized touches that made us feel welcome and special. She seemed to always be available but was never intrusive as we enjoyed our weekend getaway.

Spring Lake is a beautiful town centrally located along this stretch of the New Jersey Shore. It has a non-commercial boardwalk that is perfect for morning walks or riding the bikes provided to Inn guests. We had dinner at two of the many top notch restaurants within a short drive from the Inn.

We highly recommend The White Lilac Inn.

We wanted to celebrate our Mother's Birthday in her hometown and surprised her with a weekend away. The rooms were teeny. We said we were going to be 3 to a room and we got the smallest and tackiest room ever. The Victorian design went a little overboard. Of course they do not advertise that the Inn is less than 1/2 a block from the train tracks where you hear the trains running until 11 pm! I would recommend many other places in better locations for the price. This place was very stuffy, but it's a matter of taste. I won't go back.

My Husband and I spent our Honeymoon at the White Lilac Inn. Mari, the Innkeeper greeted us as we arrived and made us feel like were were at home. The rooms were gorgeous, the breakfast was the best we've ever had and their hospitality, outstanding. We've already returned once and intend to return as often as we can. It's truly home away from home but even better!!!
