Philadelphia, The City of Brotherly Love, is chockablock with historic sites and contemporary cuisine, raucous nightlife and busy-bee tech types. But brotherly love? You'd be lucky to make eye contact with your waiter.

The city, however, is but a 30-minute ride on the River Line from Burlington, New Jersey, an impeccably maintained colonial town on the Delaware River that—dare we say—is the region's real City of Brotherly Love, a place where nobody's a stranger and the Georgian-style architecture gives Philly's Society Hill a run for its charm.

Stroll the quiet streets of this 17th-century hamlet—the same streets that Ulysses S. Grant and James Fenimore Cooper once traveled—on this week's Escape to The Lily Inn, a bed and breakfast just one block from the riverfront. You'll get a one-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($99) or Fridays or Saturdays ($150).

And there's more to love: You'll get a $50 credit toward an in-room massage and a $25 credit toward dinner at Café Gallery.

Choose between The Bird Room, The Samuel Allison Room, or The Mary Smith Room, each on the second floor of this five-room inn. Overlooking High Street, The Bird Room, done up in sky-blue hues, is appointed with two sleigh beds, rich hardwood floors, and a shower with tub. The Samuel Allison Room and The Mary Smith Room both feature queen-size four-poster beds, fireplaces, and showers.

Step out of the inn and across the street for dinner at Café Gallery, where you'll be greeted with a traditional French menu. Start with duck pâté or escargots, move on to filet mignon with seasonal vegetables and a glass of Cabernet, and finish with dessert. The restaurant is also open for Sunday buffet brunch and every day for lunch.

During the day, walk historic High Street and pop into any of the many antiques shops (such as Antique Emporium and Philip's Furniture), each inevitably run by genial shopkeepers who are as happy to chat with customers as they are to sell their wares. Or, rent a kayak for a paddle down the easy-flowing Delaware.

After an in-room massage tailored to your needs by a professional massage therapist, you'll leave this town of about 10,000 people feeling rested and rejuvenated. And, who knows, you might even leave having made a new friend.

  • "By far, this is the best B&B that I have stayed in. The place is beautiful—quaint town, rich in history, and the host and hostess absolutely make you feel like family. Would I stay there again? Without hesitation."
