History of the Lilac Tree Suites

The Lilac Tree Suites was completed in June 1991 and was the first hotel built on Mackinac Island in over 75 years. The Lilac Tree has 39 uniquely appointed suites which include a large bedroom, luxurious bathroom with marble trim, a living area (some with balconies), two televisions, three telephones, a wet bar with refrigerator, microwave and air conditioning. Each suite vividly reflects the French, English and American heritage of Mackinac Island with variations of wood, wicker, and iron antiques highlighting bold patterns and colors. No two suites are alike. The Lilac Tree Hotel, with its central downtown Mackinac Island location and modern day amenities, has become one of the more popular hotels on Mackinac.
