While visiting family in Traverse City, my daughter and I decided to make a quick overnight trip to the island. From reservations, Josh our porter, to the desk staff everything was perfect. Our room was a delightful suite with a balcony overlooking main street and the water. Falling asleep listening to the clip-clop of horses was a bonus! We will be back. Thank you

This was our first trip to Mackinac Island and we fell in love with both the Island and with Lilac Tree Suites. We were met at the island by a very nice man who took care of our luggage both when we arrived and when we departed. We loved the roominess of our suite, the friendly service, the lovely decor, being within walking distance of everything and mostly sitting on the balcony in the morning listening to the clip clop of horses hooves. How quaint! We will definitely be returning.

Great vacation in a wonderful hotel. Centrally located, can listen to the clip-clop of the horses, or close the door for peace and quiet. My favorite place on the island.

What an absolutely WONDERFUL place to stay! I loved hearing the clip-clopping of the horses while I sat on our balcony. And the suite setup is so convenient for everyone. I will never stay anywhere else, now that I have been at the Lilac Tree Hotel!

What a wonderful hotel. I love sitting on the balcony in the evening drinking wine & then drinking coffee in the morning with that great view. I meet Bart at the front desk and he is a great ambassador for the Island. He should be the Governor of the Island.

This was our first time on the island during New Year's. It was a blast. The island takes on an entirely different look covered in white! Beautiful! This certainly will not be our last trip during the New Year holiday. The Lilac Tree was a perfect spot to celebrate! Wonderful accommodations!

Harms, Caledonia MI
We spent two relaxing days in a beautiful, top floor suite - with a captivating view of the town and the harbor, which were simply wonderful. The hotel staff were very courteous and helpful, and the spa package was just what we needed. The included breakfasts at the Pink Pony were excellent and started the day just right! We truly hated to leave, but we hope to be back soon!

This was my first time at Mackinaw Island. The hotel was wonderful. There were so many hotels to choose from.. I am glad we chose the Lilas Tree Suites. The room was VERY clean and gorgeous. My husband said it reminded him of a romantic doll house! We will return!

Schweiger, Wayne MI
We visited the island on our 10 year wedding anniversary and were very pleased with our entire stay. The room with the jacuzzi tub overlooking the beautiful bay and shopping strip was perfect. The Pink Pony restaurant was the best dinner we've had in years and the island's many attractions and horsedrawn carriage ride was superb! We brought our own bikes and rode around the island too, amazing beauty! This hotel is one we will recommend to anyone booking an overnight stay on the island. Thank you!

You're staff and the cleanliness of your hotel is why we return. The island is magical and your suites with balconies make our trips special.Overlooking Main Street and the harbor is the only way to stay.

Colby, Danville IL
We have been to the Island several times, but this was our first stay at the Lilac Tree. We were very impressed with everything, and loved our stay, especially sitting on the balcony. We sat there every morning for 4 days and listened and watched the town come to life. An experience we will never forget. This was an unforgettable 25th Anniversary gift to ourselves. I must not forget Archie, he was fantastic and so very friendly as were the rest of your staff. We hope to come back again soon.

We have stayed at many of the hotels/B&B's. This was our first time at the Lilac Tree and will never stay anywhere else. We were so pleased with the 2-room suite with an overlooking balcony. It was a breathtaking view. We wanted to take the beds home they were so comfortable. The desk staff were so helpful and sweet. Our luggage was taken care of by Archie who was wonderful. The location of the hotel is so convenient for whatever you want to do. We have absolutely no negatives with this stay and we highly recommend it to everyone. We well definitely be back!

We enjoyed our trip to your island and staying at your Resort. The room itself was well kept with the exception of the air conditioning had an issue. Your maintance person reacted very quickly and resolved the issue. The service we got was excellent. We did enjoy all aspects of our trip and your resort helped this greatly. Thanks again and we would highly recommend you to anyone wanting to travel your direction.

Butterfield, North Branch MI
This was our first stay here and it was wonderful. It was a girl's weekend and it was such a beautiful room. Location is excellent. We could take Mom back to rest easily. We had a balcony overlooking the street and it was fun to hear the "clomp, clomp" of the horses and to watch the bikers. We could also see the harbor very well. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. I would definitely try to get our exact same room next time. Staff were very helpful and room was spotless.

Starzyk, Troy MI
We have stayed on the Island many times and have tried many of the island's hotels and B&B places. Our stay rates at the top of all the hotels. There were 4 of us and the room was spacious enough to where we didn't feel like we were walking over top of each other. Rooms were clean. Will definitely put this place on the top of my list to consider the next time I plan to stay on the island.

This was our first time on the island. I am so glad that I picked the Lilac Hotel. We loved sitting on the balcony and watching the people go by, the clip clop of the horses. My mother, who is 88, requested Mackinac Island as her vacation and so having the balcony, such a great location, and excellent staff was extra special!

It was my husbands first time on the island, but I had been there many times before and had stayed at the lilac tree. He was impressed with the central location, amenities, cleanliness, and style that the lilac tree had to offer. I was impressed with the updates that lilac tree has made to their rooms, such as the new furniture. Great hotel!

Michalski, Tawas City MI
This was our second stay here on the Island, and our second stay at the Lilac Tree. I would highly recommend the Lilac Tree. It's a wonderful hotel and you can't beat sitting on the balcony and watching the day begin, and the freighters going by. We won't stay anywhere else when we visit next year.

I have stayed at other hotels on the Island over the years, but yours is by far the best I've found. I loved the decor and cleanliness of the rooms.

We were moving our daughter to the Island for the summer and decided to stay at the Lilac Tree because of location. We Loved it! We have been visiting the island for years, it is part of our summer tradition. This was the first time we had stayed at the Lilac Tree and it was Wonderful! The suites were spacious and exceptionally clean. The staff was amazing and so helpful. We will be visiting our daughter often this summer and plan to stay at Lilac Tree again. It was Fabulous!

Ziemniak, Saint Clair Shores MI
Your hotel is one of our favorite places to stay and the staff is exceptional. I wish we could afford to visit more often. We showed a group of friends our room (who had four rooms at the Harbor House) and you will have four new customers next summer. We visit the island the last weekend in September every year and would love to hear about package deals so we could afford to stay longer.

My husband and I went up to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and had the BEST time!! The hotel was right downtown and easy to get to. The bed was very comfy and the relaxing.

Halverson, Hillsboro OR
This was our first stay here and I certainly would come back! Everyone was so friendly. The decor was charming and the beds were comfy. There were 6 of us in our group, including a 4 month old. The 2 room suite worked very well and the hotel provided a pack-n-play (play pen) so we did not have to drag ours to the island. The location is central so we could walk easily to everything. I can't wait to come back!
