The Lily Inn is all of the above. This historic 300 year old home is beautiful, comfortable and the hosts were more than accommodating. From the moment we walked through the front door, we felt at home. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous, the beds are super comfy and the bathrooms are to die for. I lived in the area 50... More

From the beautiful accommodations to the wonderful couple who hosted us, I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay! This jewel is located in the heart of historic Burlington adjacent to the waterfront and blocks away from the home of General Grant and the shop where Ben Franklin apprenticed as a printer. The house itself was meticulously restored. Featuring... More

This place is wonderful. The owners are friendly and accommodating above and beyond all expectations. The Inn is Historic, attractive, spotless, romantic and very comfortable. Old Burlington itself is a great place to visit year round, and the Lily Inn is in the heart of the historic district. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic. I will be staying at the Lily Inn... More

We stayed at the Lily Inn while visiting some good friends in Willingboro. The staff are extremely friendly and very knowledgable about the history of the Inn and Burlington. Built in 1709 and still has the original wood flooring. Beautiful!

We really enjoyed our stay at The Lily Inn. The hosts are warm and welcoming. The house, built in 1709, is beautifully & tastefully renovated. The rooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean.

I have stayed in quite a few B&B's, but I must tell you Murray and Genie are the perfect innkeepers. From the minute I entered their historic B&B, I felt welcomed.

Murray and Eugenia have saved and renovated a brick gem in a historic location. We took the third floor suite because we had our daughter and two pooches. There was a hot water issue that Murray indicated he'll fix immediately. Harold is their dog, blind put somewhat outgoing. Unfortunately we had to miss breakfast.
