“Tea--riffic!”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We loved many things about the White Lilac Inn. The porch, the bikes, the wonderful breakfast and of course the dedicated hot water spout for tea!

Our son and his girlfriend stayed there as well. You won't regret it.

My husband and I have stayed 3 times. Each time we chose a different room. All were clean, with nice decor.
Mari was great telling us good places to shop and dine. The Staff is very kind and helpful. My Husband and I went bike riding when we stayed in October

Beautiful Inn! We rode bikes to the beach (they provided everything-towel,beach badge, bikes to get there and Mari even let me borrow some sun screen!) After a long hard day relaxing on the beach, we had chocolate chip cookies on the porch.
The next day we came down to breakfast and had pancakes, muffins fruit and coffee!
Had a great time and will def be back!

Room Tip: Room at the top-if it's available had a beautiful view from the private porch off of the room

My wife and I had a delightful weekend at The White Lilac. The room was cozy, clean and comfortable. Mari and Laura were very helpful and prepared in offering evening dining choices. The breakfasts and snacks were wonderful and the was always a variety of snacks and beverages available. The sitting room was comfortable and there were a variety of books and DVDs for entertainment. A great place for a weekend getaway!

Mari,the owner and Laura the cook were very gracious hosts for our one night stay last night. The White Lilac is a 10 bedroom,beautiful victorian B+B situated in Spring Lake Heights NJ. I always get a kick out of seeing the worst reviews on the places I have stayed at-so to address them FYI-YES the train is fairly close by ,but it seems to stop around 11PM and it is not very noticeable at all in my opinion-so that's a non issue. The top floor bedroom we did not sleep in so I can't say how good or bad that room might be.We had the whole house to ourselves and it was still BEAUTIFULLY decorated for Christmas.We stayed in the 2nd floor suite,one of 2 and Mari upgraded us for free ,so that was very nice of her.The breakfast was very good blueberry pancakes prepared by the very pretty and sweet Laura. We are having a terrible cold snap here in NJ but Mari kept the house nice and warm.The room was nice and big and you can tell Mari thinks of everything,so all that you might need is supplied in the room AND instructions for this and that are right there to ,say, make the dvd player and tv work together properly.So this was my first B+B experience,so I didn't know what to expect but it was a VERY POSITIVE first experience.Kudos to Mari and her staff.

Room Tip: Your GPS may lead you down the wrong end of this discontinuous street-it dead-ends into the railroad...

My husband and I have stayed in many beds & breakfasts and the White Lilac Inn is one of the nicest ones we've ever stayed in. The inn was charming with a beautfiul room that all our friends could sit in together. The owner was very friendly and very accomodating. The breakfasts were very good. We can't wait to go back.
