The Inn at Glencairn is a gem tucked in Princeton. We pass the Inn daily, as we are locals. Wanting a needed getaway, but not able to travel far, we took our daughter's recommendation. She and her husband stayed at the Inn for their wedding. Mason and Patty instantly welcomed us, gave us a tour of the historic house, decorated... More

A beautiful, historic, and warm inn with genuinely gracious hosts. The rooms have cozy yet clean feel, with nice updates that only add to the atmosphere. The original part of the house is the room you will want to sit in for hours. When in Princeton, we will be staying here!

It's hard to add to the other glowing reviews. Patty and Mason are excellent hosts and they have a beautiful and well appointed inn. They took such great care and time to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed from the moment we walked in the door. We stayed in the suite with our teenage children and... More

We enjoyed our hosts Mason And Kathy. They were both very gracious and welcoming. The house is wonderful. Room was very comfortable. We were kept awake however, by some musical chime or clock that would sound at times through the night. I think it was a wind chime a big no no if you are paying for peace and quiet.... More

We stayed at the Inn at Glencairn as a gift from dear family members who wanted to treat us to a special time. The best gift ever! This was our first stay at a B&B so we didn't know what to expect. From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. The inn keepers, Patty and Mason, are perfect hosts.... More

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
