wife and I went away labor day weekend just to relax and this place refreshed us completely. The minute you drive up to the house'which is on the river you left the hassle of everyday life.A beautiful 2 story old fl. home with many large oaks and peaceful landscaping. We were greeted by Richard who told us a little about the ammentities the property had to offer: small library,games, movies then showed us to our room. The room had two skylights over the bed which was great even though it was cloudy most of the nights.We went downstairs and in the living room was a baby grand piano.We later met the owners Polly and Art who just made our stay fantastic.They were able to help us locate areas around Daytona. Theytold us of happenings going on for the weekend.If they didn't havethe answer they found out for us through their ntwork of neighbors.Home was beautifully decorated and had a very relaxing atmosphere.Front porch had rockers which was pleasant to sit and view river.On river there was a small park with 30ft pier .which we used early in morning for the sunrises. Breakfast was outstanding- fresh fruit ,omlettes ,french toast, belgum waffles, muffins. Every day was something new and enjoyable.Also coffee tea and local paper was brought upstairs for guests.The inn was very quiet,restful and just a joy to stay.Came back renewed and refreshed.Can't wait to get away again.Polly and Art made us feel like family they were a great blessing .You can't go away dissapoin atted the the River Lily Inn.

What a wonderful place to stay for a weekend to get away from it all.
Polly and Art are great hosts and the breakfast that they served was fantastic. We stayed in the Sea Breeze room and it was beautiful with a great view of the river, Polly even went so far as to contact the restaurant we were going to that night and our dinner was that much more enjoyable for it.
There is no question that we will return for another stay.

We were in Daytona to watch our daughter and her college dance team in the NCA/NDA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championships. It is a fun time with lots of youthful energy invading the streets and beaches of this infamous resort town. But having done this before, we knew that at the end of the day we would be ready for some peace and quiet.

That's why this year we chose to stay at the River Lily Inn, just five easy minutes across the Intracoastal Waterway / Halifax River from the Daytona "strip" that is Atlantic Avenue. A short drive and you're there, in another world. With views of the Waterway, the River Lily is situated in a residential area back off the main road and nearly hidden by the beautiful old live oaks and palm trees. The house itself is beautifully restored and the rooms tastefully decorated. We stayed in the Gardens View Room and the bed was quite possibly the most comfortable we've ever encountered. And the linens were of a very high quality too.

Outside, the grounds are lovely and off to the side of the house is a heart-shaped pool....a nice touch for a bed and breakfast. We had one free afternoon from the dance competitions and spent it lying in the warm Florida sun by the pool, which felt good to this Cincinnati couple, still cold from another hard Ohio winter. The pool at the River Lily was so much more relaxing than lying on the beach with all the college kids and the cars that are allowed to drive up and down this beach. And while reading and relaxing by the pool, our hosts brought us an afternoon snack.

Which brings me to the best part. The innkeepers, Art and Polly, were so warm and friendly that we felt like family in their home. They made it a point to remember and address us by our names, asked each day how our daughter's team did, and served up some of the most delicious breakfasts we've ever had at a bed and breakfast. As we departed at the end of our three-night stay, Art and Polly gave us each a hug. Did I mention that they make you feel like family?

We would highly recommend the River Lily Inn to couples looking for a quiet, peaceful alternative to the hustle and bustle of the Daytona Beach that exists just across the river. This is definitely the mellow side of Daytona. We're glad we chose to stay here.
