This was our first stay on Mackinac Island. The Lilac Tree is perfectly located. Close to the ferry and on the Main Street. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms were clean and the staff was very helpful.

This is our third stay on Mackinac Island....you can have a different experience each time you visit simply by choosing a different lodging. This is a well done suite property located on Main Street. A bit pricey, but I think it is worth it. Very nice staff.....you are even offered 'Milk and Cookies" at turn down time. Recommend for families...

We have stayed on Mackinac Island at a few other places but this by far is the absolute best! They are all roomy suties. We went this time with our daughter and son in law. We had a sutie with a king size bed on the back side of the hotel and my daughter and son in law had a...

Great view of Main St and water view. Room has refrigerator and microwave. Jacuzzi is a in the bathroom and not very attractive. This hotel has air conditioning which is unusual for Mackinac Island! Loved the horse and buggy going by my window!

You have to get a balcony! You can sit on your balcony and hear the clippy clop all day and night! Doesn't get better than that! Plus, their porter, Archie is the best!!!! He never stops! He starts at 730 am, We will be back, also a quiet hotel compared to the others.

This was a wonderful place to stay. The living space and balcony made it perfect for my 94 year old mother to also enjoy our time on the island. She could sit outside and feel like she was part of the adventure. The accommodations were updated and very clean. Staff was accommodating and milk and cookies were a nice touch...can't...

My wife and I decided to get a couples massage at Lilac. We had been there once before and had a great experience then. This time around was no different. They were able to accommodate my wife who was 24 weeks pregnant at the time. Services were great, and our masseuses were very friendly. I would recommend Lilac to anyone...

My husband and I just returned home from our stay at Lilac Tree. We had room 202. We could see a bit of the lake from our balcony, which was really nice. We enjoyed sitting and relaxing on it. We chose to stay here for our 20 year anniversary trip. We had not been away as a couple since our...

The staff was very friendly and very quick to know the answers to all of our questions (this was the first time we stayed on the island). The room was gorgeous and the beds were comfortable. Located pretty much in the middle of the main street, it was wonderful for people watching off the balcony and we were able to...

Another great stay at the Lilac Tree Suites and Spa. They have now added new sleeper sofa's in each living room. This hotel still has the old world charm of Mackinac Island. The staff is always friendly and helpful if you have a question about the island. Do use the spa if your time permits. There is nothing like a...
