Our stay at the Lily Inn was wonderful - it's located in a really neat downtown near the river, in a wonderful old building that is beautifully furnished. Our beds were a little small, but we slept well. The homemade breakfast was fantastic! Highly recommend.

Simply perfect visit. We came to visit my wife’s family and were pleasantly surprised, I would stay here any and every day over any hotel in the area. I did see negative reviews about traveling with children. This is not the case at all we came with our 9 yo and He loved his time here. Gene was incredible, room was immaculate, my wife (like anyone else) is a stickler for a clean room and this place passed with flying colors.

My husband & I along with our 9 year old son stayed here while visiting family. We are originally from the area but never knew of this hidden gem. The Pugh suite is lovely! Jean is very welcoming and so is Lucy, her little dog. Will definitely stay here again!

We decided to visit the area to do some house hunting and spent two nights in the Samuel Allinson room at The Lily Inn. The entire property has been lovingly restored while retaining it's colonial charm. The room was extremely comfortable with a view of the street below. The house and garden were very inviting. We enjoyed our Sunday afternoon and evening relaxing by the fireplace and having a refreshment in the garden. Our host, Jean, was very attentive and informative. We are looking forward to returning.

We stayed over New Years and had the most amazing stay. The Lily Inn is one of the nicest, most charming places I've ever stayed at. Jeane was an amazing host who paid attention to every detail while we were there. She greeted us and gave us a walk through of the property, which is located on the most quaint street. Every morning she had a home cooked breakfast ready and would occasionally check in with us to make sure we didn't need anything. We stayed on the third floor in a King bed room with a jacuzzi/shower. The room and bathroom were both HUGE and very clean. The bed was also extremely comfortable. The room was facing the street but you could not hear anything from outside (and I am a light sleeper). Plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance and the town has quite a bit of history. The original floors from the Lily Inn date back to the 1700s and the whole place has an amazing vibe. The dining room was spacious and also had a ton of charm. Also spent a good amount of time in the living room with the fireplace, which was extremely cozy. There is also the cutest little dog (Lucy) on property!! Next time I'm in the area, I will definitely stay at the Lily Inn again!
