Suscessful surprise get a way for my husbands birthday! Inn keeper had freshly made biscotti in the room at my extra request for my hubby. The master river lily suite was amazingly beautiful with large windows and skylight. we enjoy natural light but if you like to sleep in and want darkness this might not be the room for me you. The room was also on the warm side during the summer day due to the windows but cooled down just fine in the evening. had a shared balcony with the adjoining room but still very private. The pool is a bit older but was clean and surrounded by nice vegetation. Very close to downtown Daytona activities. House is located on intracoastal and near to jet ski rentals. Great breakfast!!! Will plan to visit again

Wonderful Anniversary Stay!

From our arrival on our 37th wedding anniversary, to our leaving the next day, every aspect of our stay at the River Lily Inn Bed and Breakfast was A+! We were greeted by Polly and Art like welcomed family. The home and grounds are beautiful, inviting and clearly lovingly cared for. Our River Lily room was comfortable, spotless, well appointed and gorgeous! We really enjoyed the balcony off the room for coffee and reading. We enjoyed the crystal clear pool and towels provided for it. Our host's recommendation for dining for our anniversary evening was spot on (Caribbean Jack's Restaurant and Bar.) and their breakfast the next morning was delicious! We were sorry to leave after only one night and we look forward to staying at the River Lily again someday!

Very comfortable!

The innkeepers are wonderful and always make you feel at home. I cannot think of one thing that they need to improve! 100% satisfied! Can't wait to stay there again.

We have stayed at the River Lily many times and find the owners, Art and Polly, to be extremely helpful and accommodating. They consistently go the extra mile for their guests. Breakfast is a culinary delight served with a smile and live background music provided by talented Art. We have recommended the River Lily to friends and family in the past and will continue to do so in the future. At the River Lily you are treated like family!

I booked this location as stopover during our trip around Florida in May 2016. The place, house, rooms and breakfast are awesome. The owners are very friendly and helpfull. Unfortunately the weather was not the best during our stay and due to this it was very "quiet" on Daytona Beach and downtown. For those who are looking for a relaxing place to stay, we can recommend the River Lily Inn warmly. D. Hoda, Switzerland

Lovely place to stay!

This cute little inn is tucked away across from the Halifax River. The innkeepers went above and beyond to make you feel 'their house was our house.' Art provided dining music and a few jokes. Polly was a delightful hostess and helpful, warm and friendly. If you are ever in the area, stop by this lovely little place even if it is for afternoon tea.

Polly is the best!

Great place, awesome hosts! I was served the same breakfast as during our last stay that I didn't like then either.

My stay was definitely better than any other bed and breakfast I've ever been to. I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the property is and how immaculate the rooms were. They made it very easy for me to come in late night hour and even though I wish I had more time to enjoy the property. Everything was clean and beautiful. They had everything in the bathroom I needed. Breakfast was amazing and they were so friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back! Oh, the bed was the most comfortable and luxurious I've ever slept in.

Sea Breeze Guest Room 2

The Sea Breeze has a West Indies kind of feel. It gives off a “let your cares melt away” atmosphere. Open the glass doors that lead to the verandah, breathe the salt air and let the sea breeze gently blow across your face. Lounge on the verandah and enjoy the sweeping views of the Intracoastal Halifax River. You feel like you are in a tropical paradise as you overlook the river, heart shaped swimming pool and gardens. The view doesn’t change as you sit in the jetted tub that overlooks the river and the gardens. Let the soothing water jets gently massage you’re your body. The Sea Breeze is the perfect romantic place.
