Love this place. Beautiful clothes new & used, jewellery and other items. The owner Sue is helpful and always has a welcoming smile.

Jean Garnier on 14-Oct-22
This is a feel good place start to finish The suite is so comfortable, loved the deck having morning coffee ( best is from Water Lily shoppe) while overlooking the river. Sue is a thoughtful and gracious host. The suite is evidence of her attention to detail and desire to make your stay memorable! The shoppe is full of carefully chosen items of clothing or decor or gifts. And did I mention the coffee Highly recommend the Water Lily

Paul Stevens on 22-Nov-20
Friendly service, great coffee and a real eclectic selection of gifts, jewellery, vintage items and clothing, both new and used. The customers are always friendly and helpful as well.

Kyle on 07-Oct-19
Quaint little country hideaway! We stayed at Sue's for a couple of nights for a wedding and it was perfect. Very comfy beds and nice toiletries in the washroom. The place is as central as it gets in Hastings and the hot tub was easy to use. Sue was also accommodating of our five month old daughter - she had a Pack and play all ready for us upon arrival.

Beverley Wistowsky on 31-Jan-14
The Trent Hills area is a wonderful place to live and meet people. The owners of the Water Lily are delightful people, with a shop that's pretty, practical, and always full of new, interesting inventory. I like to stop in for a coffee, say hi to Sue, and browse in the clothing area (downstairs). I've bought both new and used clothing, as well as garden accessories. Sue always has new, interesting gift ware upstairs, where I've bought for weddings and birthdays in the family. Great people, great shop!

Debbie Evans on 06-Jan-11
The Water Lily is a great place to shop, lovely atmostphere, great freshly roasted coffee, snacks and good quality gifts for both sexes and all ages. Sue is a great hostess and always greets you with a friendly smile. ps dog friendly.

The Water Lily guest suite is very clean, comfortable and roomy. It offers an ideal location for relaxation. Sit back and watch the boats go through the locks, enjoy the country atmosphere and the fresh air without leaving your porch. The decor store is very quaint. Beautiful gift ideas and fantastic icecream and coffee. The service is wonderful. The porch out front allows you to sit and enjoy a relaxed environment and just people watch. I would certainly recommend this location to anyone wanting to experience the Trent/Severne waterway up close and personal.
