While we enjoyed our time at this inn, I couldn't help leaving with the impression that it is run rather perfunctorily, without the personal investment and enthusiasm it takes to create true hospitality. The innkeepers were agreeable but we would have appreciated a bit more "hands-on" approach to asking about our interests and needs. There is enjoyment in residing in... More

Our stay at this inn was wonderful. It's gorgeous place, beautifully restored, with modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. The breakfasts were large and delicious, and what can I say? We'll stay here with Susanna and John again; they were great. When there was a possible snafu with the wifi, it turned out someone had just kicked a cable. And while... More

Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the comfortable surroundings as well as our Innkeepers hospitality. I am relieved that the exterior painting did not affect your stay. It was something that we tried to coordinate so that our guests were not disturbed. I hope that you will come back again... More

We arrived at the Inn at Glencairn in Princeton in the middle of the winter storm Janus, the innkeepers Susana and Jon graciously gave us the historical house tour. Our guest room was warm and cozy after the nervous drive in the snow storm. Luckily enough we did not have to go back out into the storm as they; invited... More

I have been coming back to IAC for several years. I enjoy my visits every time and promise myself to write a review. The original Innkeeper, Bob, moved back to the west coast a couple years ago, and now with Jon and Suzy at the helm the Inn has continued to operate at its always excellent standard. The Inn is...

From the bedding, to the showers, to the amenities this place was superb. Although not centrally located in Princeton and is actually located outside of Princeton in Lawrenceville, it still was a nice location right down the road from Princeton proper. Looking forward to spending more evenings there in the future the next time we are in the area. And... More

This is a truly amazing hotel located a few miles from Princeton. The hotel used to be a private house from 1700 century but are now converted to a very small boutique hotel. The hotel has only 5 rooms, each room is different. But they have kept the old 1700-1800 style in the entire hotel. Very friendly staff and personalized... More

Very nice one night stay -- feels more like a boutique hotel. Very nice tile work in the private bath and nicely selected furniture and fabrics. Very professional feel and very clean. Restaurants in Lawrenceville are all very good (some dry) with free public parking -- much less crowded than Princeton. Perfect price point. Would stay again.

The Innkeepers, Jon and Suzy, provide a welcome, warm environment in this restored stone home. Their generosity shows in their great breakfasts, their willingness meet a guest's special requests from food to easy permission to work from the dining room during the day. My room's four-poster was more comfortable than any bed I've stayed in recently. I travel five days... More

I recently stayed here with a friend while in town for an event. This inn was the perfect choice - good location, friendly innkeepers, beautiful setting. We really enjoyed it. Take the time to chat with the innkeepers to learn about the property and the area!
