We'd recommend the Inn at Glencairn to anyone. Beautiful old home in a gorgeous location, delicious breakfast and other goodies, and ran by a fantastic couple with experience. Will definitely be back.

We have been to several B&Bs, and our weekend at the Inn at Glencairn was absolutely the best B&B experience we’ve had, in every aspect. The house itself is beautiful, full of history and atmosphere. The place is spotless, the beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are clean and modern. The innkeepers, Mason and Patty, are so warm and hospitable,... More

We were looking for the perfect Bed and Breakfast to gift a weekend stay to my Brother and Sister in Law. I spoke with Patty regarding the Inn itself and the many options offered in the local area. The gift certificate purchase occurred through the mail, making it very convenient for us as we don't live in the area. This... More

I loved that this inn not only allows children (ages 10 & up) but that it even offers a family suite to accommodate families. The room with the hearth from the 1600's was a lovely place to sit and sip the wine that was provided. Our kids also enjoyed playing board games that we had brought with us in that... More

At the last minute, we decided to stay during our day trip to Princeton and so glad that we did! We had such a warm welcome. The place is so cozy and the remainder of the snow outside made it even more picturesque. The room was beautiful, clean and there was also complimentary water and waffle dressing gowns. There was...

I am at a loss to understand the "average" reviews. The living room "gloomy"? It is a large, comfortable room with a hearth from the 1600s where the Innkeepers set out white and red wine, coffee, tea, and snacks for the guests, gratis. The furnishings "hotelish"? There are antiques throughout where I wanted them, and modern "hotel" quality beds -... More

We checked into a hotel nearby that was so bad that at 9pm we left the room immediately, called the Inn at Glencairn and although now late at night, they welcomed us to the Inn, even prepared a wonderful late night supper for us, had white wine waiting in the guest room on ice and a great red. The Inn... More

My wife and I, local to the Princeton area, spent an overnight at the Inn at Glencairn and had an absolutely wonderful time. The Inn is both historic and beautiful. The innkeepers, Patty and Mason, immediately make you feel welcome; we spent the first couple of hours of our visit unwinding in the comfortable Great Room and enjoying a glass... More

The Inn at Glencairn was a wonderful place to stay. The house has a ton of history which can be felt as soon as you walk through the doors. The Inn is a short, 5-10 minutes, from Nassau St in Princeton. Mason and Patty make guests feel right at home. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The innkeepers are the perfect balance between being welcoming and friendly without being over the top or overbearing. They also have a good sense of how much history to chat about without getting boring. There is a lot of interesting history to be felt and admired at this inn, whether you want the nitty... More
