River Lily Inn – Bed and Breakfast – Sitting on an historic estate with 1.5 acres of land, the building housing the River Lily Inn Bed & Breakfast dates back to 1888 and maintains its classic elegance while providing modern amenities. There are six rooms with unique appointments, private bathrooms, luxury towels, fine linens, flat-screen TVs with cable, DVD players, high-speed wireless internet, irons, hairdryers, full-length mirrors, clock radios, and Fairfax multi-function showerheads. Guests can ask for a newspaper to be delivered to their door and borrow DVDs, books, board games, playing cards, a garment steamer, or a land-line phone. The property’s swimming pool is certainly unique as it is heart-shaped. Explore the property, admiring the oak trees that are hundreds of years old. Begin the day with the full breakfast either in your room or the dining room. If you plan your visit for the right dates, you can also plan on attending a traditional tea at Polly’s Tea Room.
