“First Class Throughout”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Polly and Art were friendly and warm from the time I phoned for information, to the big hug we got when Karen and I said goodby. The B&B is beautiful and shows great skill in pulling all of it's eclectic pieces together. We stayed in The Seabreeze Room which had a view of the inter-coastal from the veranda, a jetted tub and a kingsize bed with the softest sheets. Polly had fresh coffee outside of our room at 7:00 am. Breakfast was at 9:00, with many inovative items on the menu. The atmosphere throughout our stay was like we were part of Polly and Art's family. If you are looking for a first class experience, this is where you want to stay.

Room Tip: Any room is a good choice, an a great value.

My wife and I just spent two days at the River Lily Inn and had a wonderful time. Art and Polly were very nice and provided great service. The location is great and the Inn is beautiful. Breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommend.

The setting - breathtaking. The hosts - gracious, accommodating and exceptional. The view - spectacular. The room - exceptional. My first experience with a B & B; I've only read about them and hoped it would be memorable. Wow! Sitting on the front porch in rocking chairs overlooking the Halifax River - able to walk across the street to a private park. Art & Polly made it AWESOME! Can't wait to go back! Steve & Jamie

Going to the River Lily B&B is like a weekend in paradise! Art & Polly are the best Inn Keepers and make you feel at home from the time you enter the Inn. It is surrounded in beauty and the decor is warm and comfortable. Art & Polly are terrific cooks and we look forward to our breakfast each morning! Across the street is a nice fishing pier or you can turn left or right and find the BIG Piers to fish off. Only about 5 minutes away from Daytona Boardwalk - the time just goes too fast - with all there is to do around there. A great place for weekend romp or a week of vacation - You will return time after time - I am sure! We Love you Polly & Art!

We were doing a bit of a road trip exploring the coast and had the opportunity to book in with Art and Polly. Those familiar with Daytona know that it can often live up to the Nascar and Biker reputation. Art and Polly have created a fantastically classy yet totally friendly oasis. Their attention to detail is clear and their property makes you feel instantly at home. Directly across from a fishing pier if you choose to do so, or just to watch the world go by. Breakfast was accompanied by music from Art, very gifted. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We are from Canada and frequently stay at B&Bs. This was our first time staying at a B&B in the States and we were not disappointed. The River Lily Inn is exceptional in every way....clean, well-decorated, and peaceful with beautiful surroundings. Art and Polly were wonderful hosts and we truly appreciated their hospitality. Art serves a scrumptious breakfast .......huge portions for us Canadians. Should we ever pass by Daytona again, we would not hesitate to stay there! Thank you Art and Polly!

Take all the reviews we read, discount the one and only negative review, add the rest up and multiply by two and you get how terrific the hosts are...the rest goes without saying. What an incredibly nice surprise to finish up with a perfect breakfast accompanied by Art's carefully nuanced and expressive guitar playing. He's an artist capable not just of beautiful music but, even more importantly, capable of gauging his audience and tailoring his music to augment rather than interfere with the pleasant atmosphere of a quiet morning breakfast. Wow!!!
