“Whenever you go on a trip to visit foreign lands or distant places, remember that they are all someone’s home and backyard,” says Vera Nazarian, author, artist, and publisher. And the next time you enjoy your stay at a B&B, remember that’s also the home for the innkeeper. I’ve always enjoyed traveling and spending my time at an inn rather than a hotel. The personal hospitality of an inn and all the uniquely personal touches of each guest room is the way to go for me. Innkeeper Mari Kennelly of the White Lilac Inn in Spring Lake, knows a thing or two about hospitality and that’s a large part of what keeps her guests returning year after year. The Old Shamrock Lodge has come a long way! Spring Lake is a beautiful destination even if you already live at the Jersey Shore. A night or two at the White Lilac Inn makes a perfect romantic getaway (hint, hint). The fireplaces that burn ethanol(those are my personal favorite type of fireplace)…the whirlpool tubs…beautifully appointed rooms. I would happily spend a few days there and be a tourist in Spring Lake.
White Lilac Inn is located at 414 Central Ave, Spring Lake, NJ 07762.
