My husband planned this getaway for the two of us recently, as we both just needed a break from life. This was such a wonderful surprise! Not only because my husband planned it, but because we were made to feel right at home at Lily Inn. Murray, Genie, and Harold were delightful company and outstanding hosts. The Inn is simply...

We stayed at the Lily Inn on the last night of our vacation; we had spent the last eight days running around from Philadelphia to Williamsburg to Washington DC. We chose it because it offered a room with a spa tub, and felt we deserved a little bit of decadence to be able to relax. The Lily Inn offered exactly...

This place is a hidden gem! The innkeepers are friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of Burlington homes and locations, volunteered information on where to eat and were extremely helpful, provided maps, directions and suggestions for walking. The room was enormous, beautifully decorated, with modern amenities like flatscreen TV and a beautiful, very modern and large bathroom. Our room...

What can be written that hasn't already been said? Our room had character unlike anywhere else we've stayed, matched only by the shining personalities of the owners and rich history of the Inn. Breakfast was delicious and served with engaging conversation between us and the Burlington Official Hugger i.e., Murray. We stopped in to celebrate our three year anniversary and...

The Inn is welcoming itself and the lovely husband and wife makes you feel like family. There is much history to the Inn as upon check-in, I walked into a history lesson being given to another Inn owner that had property right across the water in PA. This was my first stay at an Inn and a wonderful experience it...

We stopped at The Lily Inn on the way home from a holiday celebration in Virginia and Maryland with family and friends. This was our third visit, and The Lily Inn is now officially our favorite B&B. Murray and Genie are the best hosts - warm and friendly, very professional - and Murray's breakfasts are, well, out of this world....

Hard to find words to describe our wonderful stay at the Lily Inn. We discovered this hidden jewel 3 years ago on our back from Florida to Montreal. The Inn is charming and beautifully decorated.

The Lily Inn is the best B&B we ever stayed in. Nestled in the historic district of Burlington, the setting along the Delaware River feels like a giant step back into history.
