Visiting from England, the Lily Inn was our first stay during 10 days of a hectic trip, and it was a hard act to follow! Hosts Murray and Gene were extremely kind and helpful, making sure we made the most of our stay in the area. We found the family suite to be exceptionally comfortable and ideal accommodation for four... More

It doesn't get much better than this for hospitality (Gene & Murray's); charm; and one delicious breakfast (specifically, Murray's French Toast!) We were visiting family in nearby Cinnaminson, and this was the perfect place to stay. I have no doubt that we shall return,

I stayed there for five days while visiting my mother who lives close by. The house has all the modern amenities in a very old, and well restored, Colonial home. It has been lovingly restored by Murray and Gene, who are very warm and welcoming hosts. It is all done in an understated, beautiful way which makes you feel welcomed... More

We went there for my birthday. The room was comfy yet elegant, and we stayed in the room with the jacuzzi tub. It was lovely being able to immerse myself in the water. Genie and Murray were excellent in every way possible, kind, easy to chat with, and Murray makes a great omelette. There is not enough praise I can... More

We recently returned (July 13) from the Lily Inn and I had to write this review. Gene and Murray are the consummate hosts. Their both historical and lovely home is truly a home away from home. Our beautiful room was on the top floor with every amenity you would want for both comfort and convenience. Breakfast was one of sustenance... More

We were recently in the area for a family funeral, and arrived, late evening, from the sunny southwest, to a gloomy landscape. Arriving on High St., the warm glow of the inn's light was lovely. Our innkeeper, host, and chief hugger, Murray, greeted us with a smile, a tour of the historic house, and a great history lesson about the... More

We stayed at the Lily Inn on our trip from Virginia to Boston. It was the perfect midway point, and we were delighted with the Lily Inn. Our hosts made us feel completely at home. Murray and Gene seemed to have mastered the art of hospitality. Their Inn is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We spent time in the upstairs... More

We arrived on Burlington Day. A little fair by the river and lots of crafts/ shops/foods to eat. When we entered the Inn we were greeted very warmly by Murray. The inn is absolutely beautiful and charming. There was a harpist in the back garden. Amazing! The garden is beautiful and peaceful. Wonderful get away. Very old school romantic! Great... More

We stopped here on our way back to New York and home. Murray & Gene (Eugenia) are first class hosts, you will receive a very warm welcome and indeed a "Murray hug" into their beautiful home, also a history tour, fabulous. The decor is great, original wood floors and the bedroom is super, spacious, clean and the bed is to... More

We stayed with Murray and Gene (Eugenia) this past week en route north from the DC area. They welcomed us with open arms (literally--Murray has a plaque on the wall declaring him a "hugger"!) and we felt like we were catching up with old friends. The building was gorgeous--beautiful refurbished floors and decor, but it was the innkeepers that made... More
