The team at The Lilac Tree Suites & Spa has decorated the hotel inside and out in true
Christmas spirit to welcome everyone with festive evergreens, ribbons, bows, lights, ornaments
and stockings. The Mackinac Island Christmas Bazaar took place on the first weekend in December and
it was great that the Lilac Tree Suites & Spa was open again and our team loved welcoming our guests.
Everyone loved the annual lighting of the Mackinac Island Christmas Tree and the crisp air was filled
with the sound of Christmas carols after the tree was lit.
Moments in time like this on Mackinac remind me of the past and what true community spirit is all
about. We’ve had a great 2016 season and we thank all of our guests for making this possible.
On Mackinac Island and at the Lilac Tree Suites & Spa, we are one big family. We’re thankful for our
great people at the front desk, the housekeeping and maintenance teams, and our dock porters- you
are the best! We also want to thank the people at the boat ferries, and the Mackinac Island Police and
Fire Departments for all you do. Our family is close and far and after the season ends, many leave
Mackinac Island. Some go back to the mainland to their homes, many return to college and other family
members live far away and return to their homes in Jamaica where they get to be re-united with
their families after a long season.
Now, we’re pumped and are getting ready for our grand re-opening on December 29th
through January 3rd. Have you ever had a Winter wonderland on Mackinac Island? We still
have a few rooms left before and after the New Year and it would be great to have you here
again. Mackinac Island during the Holidays is everything you would imagine. After a full day and
fun-filled evening, and looking forward to your warm, cozy bed, you’ll be greeted with our
Holiday turn down service with steaming hot chocolate and candy canes. The next morning, you’ll wake
up to a hearty Continental breakfast and get ready for another beautiful day on Mackinac Island.
We host special Holiday movies with coffee, hot chocolate and games for all in our lower level then watch
one of my favorite movies, “Ice Bridge”, a documentary about the hidden beauty of Mackinac Island in
