We loved everything about the Lilac Tree. When looking for a place to stay on Mac Is, everyone said rooms were tiny & expensive. Not the Lilac Tree!! We had a completely separate sitting area plus a balcony overlooking the water #306. The suite was furnished perfectly for a resort --- charming! We loved the lilac soap & bath products... More

Room was very comfortable, heating and cooling seemed to work great, also a ceiling fan above the bed was nice. Water got hot right away, shower was... More

We stayed at the Lilac Tree in September and management sent a letter telling us that there would be road construction going on while we were there. Needless to say, we were quite upset - we had planned this trip for months and we were coming from Florida. After a few calls we were told that the construction would not... More

The Lilac Tree is a charming and delightful hotel on the Main Street of Mackinac Island. We stayed in a king size suite and could not have been more pleased. The rooms were very pleasing to the eye and quite clean. Desk staff was courteous and helpful. The location for us was wonderful. We would stay there again if we... More

Managed to adjust our stay to have an 'extra' night on the Island and were lucky enough to get a room at the Lilac Tree. They sell out a LOT so make reservations!

Love this place. All rooms are suites so plenty of room. This trip we got a room on the 4th floor, top floor, overlooking the lake. It is down town so close to everything we need. No pool but you have access to another hotels pool but the room is worth it. Great hotel.

The room sleeps at least six and the staff has been very nice. The bed is comfortable, the jacuzzi wonderful, and everything is very clean and accommodating. I would have rated it a five except the wifi is extremely slow and spotty. Don't k low of that's an island thing?
