Step back in time to an age of quiet elegance. Enjoy a stroll along the river, shop or dine at one of our fine establishments. Return to our restored 300 year old lovely inn, and enjoy 10' ceilings, original white cedar plank floors (complete with creaks), and original blue marble fireplaces. Walk in the foot steps of many American legends: Benjamin Franklin, Ulyssess S. Grant, James Fenimore Cooper, and Captain James Lawrence to name a few. Learn about Elias Boudinot, J. Howard Pugh, and the Underground Railroad. View Burlington Island. Settled in 1626 by the Walloons it is the site of the first recorded European settlement in New Jersey. Walk the streets of this wonderful, charming historic town, and return to the Inn for an evening of comfort and relaxation.

amazing place, wonderful people

5 on July 10, 2014

It's like a throwback 300 years ago, the place is gorgeous. Murray and Genie were great, the warm hugs of Murray will make you feel very welcome. Genie fed us with not just nutritious breakfast but shared her knowledge on the history of Burlington and nearby towns, just perfect for our 4th of July weekend.

The charm and history of Burlington is enhanced by the wonderful hospitality of The Lily Inn. Murray and Genie are perfect hosts that make you feel like family! Enjoy a glass of wine on the back patio in the serene setting. Take in the history of the Burlington area! This is a real gem! Best B&B I've ever stayed at, hands down!!! Ask for the famous French Toast! With much affection, R. Boylan

The Best Darn B&B in the universe, known and unknown.

If heaven has a B&B this would be it. From the second we arrived at the Lilly Inn Jean and Murray made us feel like family. The rooms are the cleanest we've seen anywhere, the breakfast was outstanding and our hosts were extremely accommodating. Whenever we return to the Philly area you can be sure that the Lilly Inn will be our only choice to rest our heads and fill our stomachs and most of all visit our new best friends, Jean and Murray.

Innkeeper Response
