We were looking for a weekend get-a-way and this inn totally fit the need! The inn itself has a lot of character based on its history. The grounds are beautiful and allow for a nice stroll outside. The inn is comfortable and welcoming while being elegant and beautifully decorated. But to us the highlight was Patty and Mason - they... More

I recently took a short trip to Princeton to attend a community event with my daughter, and had booked a night at the Inn on her suggestion. Mason was friendly and helpful from the minute we arrived, and gave us a great tour of the Inn. We enjoyed meeting Patty a bit later on, who was just as friendly and... More

Large and tastefully decorated room, well equipped bathroom, great hosts attentive to details, set in a charming location a few minutes away from Lawrenceville and Princeton. The Inn at Glencairn provides the special charm of an Italian B&B in the context of a large New England historical house. Highly recommended!

Wonderful B&B that tastefully blends the uniqueness of a historical house (250+ years old) with modern amenities, comforts and service. And to top it off, breakfast is amazing, the best french toast I've ever had. Patty and Mason are wonderful hosts and given the choice, I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Princeton. I'm an Princeton University alumni and I plan... More

The Inn at Glencairn is a lovely and historic inn. We stayed in the Gulick room, a comfortable and charming queen in the back of the house. Mason and Patty are charming hosts who go out of their way to make your stay comfortable, including local dining suggestions. We were in town for a corporate meeting but the Inn would... More

Sadly our stay at the Inn was only one night, but Mason & Patty made sure it was memorable. We stayed in The Baldwin suite, a lovely 2Bdrm, with the most comfortable beds and updated bathroom. The furnishings were consistent with the period and simply charming. Innkeepers Patty and Mason are incredibly kind and hospitable. Patty serves up some killer... More

We needed a place to stay in Princeton but didn't want to stay at a standard hotel in a corporate park. Thankfully we found the Inn at Glencairn. While not in Princeton's downtown, it's a short straight-shot drive right in to town a couple miles away. There's no corporate parks in sight! The location is great, but the inn and... More

On a 9 day emotional road-trip back 'home' to NYC and NJ...this lovely Inn was the last stop for us for 2 incredible nights! Mason and Patty are perfect hosts! They give you some history of the lovely Inn, show you to your super-comfortable room with modern bathroom, have amazing pretzels and homemade cookies, wines, teas, etc. available in the... More

Stayed at Inn as a base for Princeton University visit along with some other sightseeing. The location is convenient for University activities as well as easy 45 minute drive to Philly airport. The Inn is charming and historic with comfortable modern amenities. The breakfast meals are the best that I have ever eaten - fresh and impressive. The innkeepers are... More
