4/10 Fair

Disappointing stay
We didn’t get the email with access details as we should have, so we couldn’t get in the building for a while. We tried the phone numbers posted on the door but no one answered initially. We left messages but no one called back. Eventually, someone answered one of the numbers and came to let us inside. Once we did get in, we couldn’t find the key to the room. Candace was very helpful and helped us get in, but she didn’t seem to know about our reservation. The breakfast on the first morning was lacking. There were bagels but no spreads/cream cheese/butter. There was juice and water but no glasses. There was coffee but no options for tea. Other than the bagels, there was yoghurt, muffins and fruit. Breakfast on the second day was non-existent. We were told breakfast was between 8am and 9am. We went down within that time but there was no food out and no one around to ask. Not what you expect from a bed and breakfast. There was no cleaning service, so our trash was not collected and beds were not made on any of the 3 days we stayed there. The Lily Inn is a gorgeous building; we stayed here earlier in the year and had a much better experience, which included a welcome to the inn and a hot breakfast, so we didn’t hesitate to stay here again but this time we had a very different, and disappointing experience.

Charming, comfortable stay
What a perfect, charming, fun find. We were just passing through, so unfortunately didn't get to stay longer. From the robes and fireplace in the room to water, tea, coffee and snacks always available in the kitchen, it really felt like staying in someone's home, not a hotel. Highly recommend and next time we will stay longer.

This was one of the nicest, cleanest and most comfortable Airbnb we've ever stayed. The morning breakfast was excellent with several options. Sanee was easy to work with even with our last minute reservation changes. Housekeeping staff was extremely accommodating. The rooms were big with lovely furniture and very comfortable beds. We loved the coffee maker which is always available and the daily snacks. The location was very walkable with free and easy parking closeby. Restaurants are excellent with live music across the street of interested. Loved the Lilly Inn!! No reason to stay anywhere else.

The Lily is very clean. The furnishings are wonderful antique and the artwork that adorns the walls adds such a warm feel to an already gorgeous B&B. A very sort walk to beautiful views of the river and the Riverview Tavern across from he street has great food and drinks at affordable (but not cheap), prices. The Lily is very clean, very comfortable, and thoroughly relaxing. The only negative in my mind is that they no longer do hot breakfasts on weekdays. However, there are good breakfast options in the area. I chose Amy”s, which is the former Burlington Diner back in the 60”s when I was a kid. It’s worth a 4 or 5 block drive from The Lily.

A little gem in a charming town. The house is immaculate with sitting areas, coffee and tea available any time, and beautifully appointed rooms. Walking distance to many restaurants. Only disappointment was the tv - could not access cable news channels, but that was minor.

Awesome 1-Night To Celebrate Birthday
I really enjoyed my 1-night stay. It was in celebration of my birthday. Self check-in was seamless. The accommodations were charming, only a block away from the park and water. If you're a single female like myself (and you will be out late), just account for needing to walk a minute from the free parking to the Inn. Breakfast was amazing, and I really appreciate the owner accommodating that I don't eat pork. I will be back sooner rather than later since when my kids saw the picture of my breakfast they said they want to go here!
