Polly and I have been truly blessed with the kind words shared here at Trip Advisor. We try very hard to make your visit here to the area as pleasant as we can. The truth is.....it's often mentioned we make you feel like family here but, really you make us feel like family to you. You've allowed us the privilege of sharing in your lives and we are truly humbled by that.
As always, thank you for finding our front door and being apart of our Inn.
Thank you Polly and Art

If you are looking for a home away from home then you found it! This is such a beautiful setting with the most accommodating couple that owns and operates the B&B. They make you feel so comfortable that you don't want to leave. We stayed in the Carriage house apartment and it was just perfect. I was so impressed by the condition and up keep of the property. There are wonderful walking the jogging trails along the inner coastal directly across the street if you are looking to get some exercise. Everything about our stay was wonderful and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

The wonderful couple, Art and Polly, that own and operate the B&B were like meeting "old friends". They were so welcoming and made us feel so special. There were complimentary sodas and water in the community mini fridge as well as adult beverages for purchase. Our room was bright and delightful. There is just not enough room to write about our wonderful stay. Polly has "Teas" during the month and I am excited about going to one with my daughter and granddaughter in the near future. Breakfast was delicious and we felt like we were in a five star restaurant. My husband and I went for a swim in the evening in the heart shaped pool and just marveled at the beautiful gardens surrounding the pool. We have stayed in dozens of B&B's all over the country and this is at the top of the list. We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front have a beautiful river view.

Our stay at the River Lily Inn was absolutely wonderful. When we entered we were greeted with a warm hug and a reminder that we were entering a stress free zone by the welcoming Ms. Polly. We were shown to our room and given a tour of the Inn, including the fridge with the complimentary sodas and ice cream. My husband and I enjoyed a great time of peaceful relaxation and woke up to coffee and an outstanding breakfast! It was like we were staying at our Aunt Polly's house.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Sea Breeze room with the verandah that overlooked the Halifax.

My wife and I wanted to find a B & B to celebrate our 15th wedding at. We decided on the River Lily Inn and picked the Seabreeze room. Let me start by saying I have never written a review for anything but I felt compelled to let everyone know just how good this place is. It is not just because of the beauty of this lovely home but of the owners themselves.
When we arrived we were greeted by Art at the door with a big welcoming hug and then once inside the same from Polly. This husband and wife have a sincere loving quality about them that cannot be faked. You do not find this quality too often anymore . Polly showed us around the entire Inn and then we settled in. The Inn is clean , well kept and has a wonderful soothing decor that is not too bright and not too dull. Just right. There are DVDs you can pick out to watch in your room and the house is set up where you don't have to look for anything. The neighbors on each side of the Inn are quiet and you aren't bothered by any noise as well as a waterfront park directly across the street where we got to see manatees and a dolphin. Although this Inn is located on a quiet street on the Halifax River, it is 5 minutes from the main strip at Daytona.
Art is an artist, as there are several pictures he has drawn around the Inn. His artistry comes out in the breakfast as well. It is hard to take the first bite since the food is prepared on the plate in such a way that it looks like it was done by a master chef on a cooking show. Of course it is delicious! As long as its ok with you, you are placed with other guests at the same table for breakfast. It was very fun as we all shared stories on where we were from and what are plans are. There are many neat things to do in the area and good eateries. Art and Polly can steer you in the right direction as they have favorites of there own. We decided to spend most of one day at Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and Museum which is a must see if you like that sort of thing.
In closing, this is the 3rd different B & B we have been too. When we get ready to go to another one will be returning here, as we already miss the Inn and the owners.

Room Tip: The Seabreeze room and the Bridal room next too it both have a shared Veranda that overlooks the wat...

Awesome people, Art and Polly own, operate, and enjoy the River Lilly In with you. Bedrooms have been fully renovated, the lot is beatifull, and the area of Daytona is gorgeous with the river views. The breakfast meals were outstanding and they are full meals. This is far better than a resort, the comfort of the inn and the hospitality Art and Polly make your stay a lasting memory in your life. Than you Art and Polly, we look forward to returning.

Just completed the most fabulous weekend at Art and Polly's River Lily Inn in Daytona. It was my friends birthday, and we were wanting to get away for a relaxing and fun weekend. Well, we picked the perfect spot! The River Lily Inn is Old Florida at its best, and has been lovingly remodeled to perfection by Art and Polly. There were beautiful furnishings everywhere, the most comfortable beds, and everything was spotless! The breakfasts were delish, and Art entertained us with his beautiful voice, singing the classics. We spent lots of Saturday in the heart shaped pool with the stone fountain. Polly and Art both are the perfect innkeepers - warm, friendly, and very hospitable. And we had a fun birthday celebration Saturday evening! None of us can wait for our next trip back to the River Lily Inn!!!!!!

Room Tip: The River Lily bridal suite is their premier room, and is beautiful. It is a large room in front of...
