The outside of this historical B&B looks like a movie set facade, as does most of this street's shopfronts and homes. Built in the 1700's and keeping it's colonial charm, The Lily Inn is run by a lovely couple, Genie & Murray.

We only stayed one night, but it was enough to know that we'd love to go back! Genie and Murray were gracious hosts, welcoming us into their home as if we were family. We stayed in the suite, which was spacious and well-appointed; the bed unbelievably comfortable, the spa shower amazing! Breakfast was delicious. We had Murray's french toast with... More

Stayed here for a wedding. Murray & Genie were very hospitable. When arriving on May 1st, Murray gave myself & wife a tour of the inn, including the immediate properties surrounding the facility. Murray is a bit of a history buff and very knowledgeable regarding the significance of Burlington N.J., relating to the formation of America. We stayed in the... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Inn. It was a cold weather weekend but the fireplaces and period decor made us feel warm and cozy. The owners and Harrold are great. We look forward to returning to this classy Inn on the River!
