As summer quietly fades away, school buses are on the streets once again, kids are back at school and
the hustle and bustle of what we call “the real world” takes hold. Even though my kids are now
young adults and out of school, I still have heart- felt memories of time we all spent together as
a family and how much fun we had, especially our vacations on Mackinac. If you love Mackinac
Island as much as I do, you probably dream with child-like anticipation if you should visit, one last time
this Fall. Mackinac in September and October is my favorite time of year and as we all say,
“there is no time like the present” , so maybe it’s time for you to go back one last time. Or maybe twice. : )
The crisp Fall air on Mackinac takes your breath away. And your suite with a magnificent view is
awaiting your return at the Lilac Tree Suites & Spa .
The thought of time travel always fascinated me from when I was a kid and many years later I
still think it would be great to be able to go back in time. And one of my favorite things about Mackinac
Island is that I don’t have to wish it because, I really can go back in time. A much simpler time
with no cars and a time when I can enjoy the innocence and magic of Mackinac. I really like seeing
friends that I’ve made over the years and Mackinac Island’s true sense of community reminds me of how
it’s supposed to be – like it was years ago when I grew up in a small town.
“Absence makes the heart grow fonder ” is a familiar expression we’ve all heard. When you come
back this Fall to the Lilac Tree Suites & Spa, your heart will grow fonder and really appreciate being back,
because like me, Mackinac is your home away from home. The Lilac Tree Suites & Spa has
luxurious master suites with large balconies where your view of the water will re-energize you
as you hear the clip-clop of horse carriages and bikes whizzing by. When you make your reservation, ask
for our new Turtle Room Suites that are specially decorated with beautifully adorned turtle
quilts. The new Turtle Room Suites coupled with our white wicker chairs and tables give
everything a warm, welcoming lake cottage look and feel. The cottage feel at the Lilac Tree
Suites & Spa will make you feel right at home, and home is where your heart is.
When you get here, you can rent a bike or bring your own, then start your adventure and enjoy
an amazing 8.2 mile journey around the island taking in the view. I also love exploring inside trails at
this magical time of year when Mackinac Island settles into a peaceful haven with a blended
orchestra of bright red, yellow and orange leaves.
It’s time to get away and come back for a Fall Get Away. The Lilac Tree Suites & Spa is also
home to the Lilac Spa. The Lilac Spa’s dedicated team is ready to melt away your stress. You work
hard and there’s no better place to unwind. After your bike ride, hiking or stroll through Main Street, you’ll

Facials and more. Make the cares of the world and your stress dissolve away. If you’ll be here on
September 10th to participate in Mackinac Island’s 8-mile Run & Walk, you’ll really deserve a
