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.

We booked the Lily Inn because it looked nice online, and was in a great location for our needs. We had several family events to attend, and wanted a comfortable and clean place to stay- close to those events. The Lily Inn exceeded our expectations, from the room we stayed in, to the comfortable bed, the great garden area, with its warmth and charm, to the Inn keepers, Murray and Eugenia- we felt as welcome as family, and as comfortable as being home. Wayne and Margie Vogel
Hey Guys... ... thanks for the kind words. It's always nice to add to our family, and thanks for accepting us into yours. Hopefully will get to see you in the near future .. Murray, Gene & Harold ... HUGS!!!

I was greeted enthusiastically when I walked in. The initial tour was informational, fun, and entertaining. The building is beautiful and I wished that I could have explored the area more before heading home. I had to leave early the following morning so I was unable to enjoy breakfast - but I'm sure I would have been pleased with it if I could have stayed. The room was beautifully decorated, comfortable and the mattress on the bed gave me the best nights sleep of my trip. I will be back. Thank you again!
Thanks for the kind words and the good review. It was a pleasure to meet you and we look forward to seeing you again. HUGS!!!

We recently returned (July 13) from the Lily Inn and I had to write this review. Gene and Murray are the consummate hosts. Their both historical and lovely home is truly a home away from home. Our beautiful room was on the top floor with every amenity you would want for both comfort and convenience. Breakfast was one of sustenance and simply delicious. I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful historic B&B in Burlington, NJ. I plan to stay there the next time we are in the area. Thanks for sharing your lovely home and making our journey one of comfort and happiness!
We want to thank you for the review and the wonderful words and the nice and thoughtful things you posted. Looking forward to seeing you again ... HUGS!!!!

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.
Hey Guys... Thanks for the kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you and come on back for ...HUGE HUGS!!!

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
Het Ron ... Thanks for the kind review ...Big Hugs.. an hope to sing along together again

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.
Once again ... THANKS for you kind words. We are grateful to be admitted into your circle of friends. Looking forward to your next visit ..Genie,Harold and myself send you HUGS!!!

Beautiful Inn and a beautiful location. Murray was a walking history book and a fantastic cook. Learned much about the town and didn't have to take a test. We will be back!

I cannot recommend this inn highly enough. Burlington is a fascinating, incredibly historic town, and this B&B is in the heart of the historic district, within walking distance of restaurants, bars, beautifully maintained houses and churches, and the Delaware River. The B&B building itself has been meticulously restored inside and out, with none of the kitchy aesthetic you often see with B&Bs. The room I stayed in was gorgeous and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The innkeepers are fantastic -- very knowledgeable about the history of the town, and really easy to talk to. They're also great in that they're happy to chat if you want to chat, but also happy to leave you alone if you want a more solitary stay. I also appreciated the fact that you don't feel like you're staying in someone's private home, which is always awkward. The town of Burlington is relatively close to both Philly and Princeton, and this inn would be a great place to stay if you want to save a little money and avoid the noise and traffic of Philly. This inn ranks among the top of all the places I've ever stayed in. I'll definitely be back.
Genie and I want to thank you for the wonderful review. We are more than pleased that you liked our fair town, and the kind personal words you had to say about us. HUGS!! Murray, Gene and Harold

While in Burlington for a wedding, we hoped to find a convenient location in the Historic District for overnight. The Lily Inn was perfect. We were warmly welcomed into this meticulously restored historic house with a beautiful private garden. The room and bath were spacious, well appointed and comfortable, with good light for reading. Breakfast was delicious. We would highly recommend the Lily Inn and would happily return.
Never too late ...sorry it took us a while to respond to your review ... and thank you for your wonderful recommendation. Looking forward to seeing you again.. HUGS... Murray, Gene & Harold (the dog)
