My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised to discover the gorgeous Glencairn! Situated in a serene country setting only minutes from downtown Princeton and Trenton, the high level of restoration and authentic attention to historic detail at this wonderful B&B was much appreciated, particularly given the oft-found overblown kitschiness encountered in some B&B's. Patty and Mason were warm and... More

We visited the Inn at Glencairn during August of 2015 and had a very pleasant stay! Mason was a very kind, attentive host, and the new garden / private patio area he added to the yard was wonderful. Comfortable chairs, great atmosphere - even a string of lights! Room very clean, complementary wine...and delicious homemade cookies! Couldn't ask for more!... More

Patty and Mason have done a wonderful job restoring this home and bringing back all of the historic charm along with modern amenities. My husband and I spent the weekend with my brother-in-law and wife and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Inn is conveniently located in Princeton near shops and restaurants, and on Saturday we drove to Lambertville (20 min) and... More

Warm .. Elegant .. Historical .. Delicious .. Soothing .. Just a few words I would choose to describe the Inn at Glencairn. And, on top of all of that, Mason and Patti are not only first class hosts, but kind and compassionate people. Can't imagine a better bed and breakfast experience.

The Inn at Glencairn is a perfect example of why we love B&B's. Patty and Mason are charming, helpful hosts - from orienting you to the inn and the local sights and restaurants, to preparing and serving yummy breakfasts. We stayed in the Connah room and found it spacious and comfortable. We loved the chalk board in the garden area... More

Beautiful comfortable rooms, warm and guest-focused attention from Mason and Patti, quality beverages and wine when you need it, and breakfasts prepared and served with care; none of those self-serve buffet breakfasts! We stayed there as base for a cycling vacation organized by NJ Bike Tours, who worked in with the Inn regarding timelines, bike storage, and protein-loaded breakfasts!! A... More

Best B&B we've stayed in. Highly recommended! Patty and Mason were amazing hosts, and treated us like family. I highly recommend trying one of their supplemental services (we did the cheese basket)--it was beyond perfect!

We stayed here while visiting family in the area. It was the perfect solution for us to also enjoy a nice vacation. The house keeps its historical charm, but it has modern comforts. Breakfast can't be better, and coffee and wine in the common room made it even more comfortable.

As experienced B&Bers we are well aware that the realities of the experience sometime fall short of the web-site descriptions. Not so in the case of the Inn at Glencairn! The web site description falls well short of the actual experience. We are repeat guests at the Inn (Patty and Mason probably consider us repeat offenders), having stayed there during... More

Inn at Glencairn, they have thought of every detail to make your stay inviting and personable. Patty & Mason were friendly and very accommodating. The Inn is comfortable enough to bring your family and romantic enough for two. The rooms were clean and luxurious and the breakfast was delicious! We won't hesitate to stay again when we're in the area.... More
