This is the reason we stay at B & B's. Service, hospitality, special touches, hugs, and warm hosts, interesting guests and good conversation. And to top it off the place was lovely, clean, and we had a great breakfast.

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 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...

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.

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!
