This inn is dripping with history! Over 300 years old, it is so interesting and yet completely comfortable. Very beautifully appointed and yet true to the original colonial spirit. Bed was so comfy, hostess so nice, and breakfast was delicious. Lots to see and do in the Princeton area.

We have been in many b&b establishments before and after my husband who has been deployed to many combat zones. This has been far best one of the best. Pros-- very friendly inn keeper (Danielle). Tasty breakfast. Cons-- if you have knee or other mobility issues (beds require a semi-jump) perhaps use a chair in the room.

My husband and I stopped here on our way from MA to VA. It was just before Christmas and we decided to give ourselves a bit of a treat from our RT 95 travel. It was one of our best ideas ever. The inn is a delight from its historic sections to its modern baths and incredibly comfortable beds. The... More

We stayed at the Inn at Glencairn for six days over Christmas, while visiting family nearby. Everything was perfect. We enjoyed reading with a glass of wine in the common room in the oldest part of the house at night. The breakfasts were amazing and Danielle was very gracious.

We stayed in the Gulick Room and could not have been happier. The inn was quiet, well kept, and very comfortable. Danielle was very sweet and her breakfasts were delicious. We also had the opportunity to meet some very interesting people during our stay. You can't beat the distance to downtown Princeton and all that it has to offer. We... More

The Inn at Glencairn was built in three stages beginning in the the 1700's. The renovations have brought together the old with the new. Many antiques along with modern bathrooms make this Inn a gem to behold. We stayed in the Gulick room and had the best night's sleep! The breakfast was delicious especially the berries with granola in a... More

Mason & Patty, the husband/wife Innkeepers were extremely pleasant, the room was beautifully decorated with "heavenly bed" type comforter and pillows, and the french toast for breakfast the next morning was to die for! (and mine made on gluten-free bread, per my request and I kid you not, it was STILL delicious!) The property isn't walking distance to Nassau Street... More

Relaxed atmosphere, with nice common rooms where you can sit and read or chat. Comfortable. Not too fussy, not overly elegant, just-right decor. Good mattress, and well furnished room. Great breakfast. Hosts are accommodating and friendly, but not intrusive. Would definitely come back.

Rooms are very nice, great bathrooms. Historic house close to Princeton. Great place to stay to visit the area. Breakfast was great on both days that we stayed. We definitely will go back when we visit our son.
