The inn is lovely-- gorgeously renovated in a way that kept its historic beauty while making it very comfortable for modern visitors. Patty and Mason are perfect hosts. Our room was large and beautifully appointed, with a big comfortable bed and immaculate bathroom. It is just a short walk to cozy restaurants. Breakfast was truly delicious. Overall a first-class experience.

Excellent location to downtown (3 miles), very pleasant reception upon arrival and introduction to the Inn and its amenities professionally handled. Bedding was very good and room was acceptably quiet. The Hearth common area was quite special as were all the common areas. The dining room comfortably sat eight and the breakfast was delicious. The inn-sitter Therese (call me T)... More

This inn is a most wonderful combination of graceful early American and modern convenience. The setting is beautiful and the architectural restoration is lovely. No details are overlooked from the littlest fittings to the fixtures and the furnishings. The Inn sitter -T-was a perfect host - accommodating our firefly storage needs while we were there and early departure with a... More

We were in the area for a wedding weekend. The Inn is charming, very quiet and immaculate with beautiful grounds. Patty and Mason are hands-on, gracious hosts attentive to every detail. The breakfasts were delicious served in a beautiful, formal dining room. Can't wait to come back for another visit since this truly exceeded our high expectations.

I stayed at the Inn when I was in Princeton for a reunion. It was a wonderful calm haven to return to after the excitement of meeting old friends. Patty and Mason are wonderful hosts and Patty's breakfast and snacks are mouthwateringly delicious! Looking forward to my next visit.

With all of the hubbub and heightened emotional involvement in a two day Commencement at Princeton University, what an absolute delight it was to retire for two nights in the calm and serenity of the Inn at Glencairn. Located on Route 206 between Lawrenceville and Princeton, it a perfect location for visitors to either township. Owned and operated by the... More

I recently stayed at the Inn at Glencairn, had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it! This historic Inn is lovely and the wooded property is so peaceful. The rooms and attached bathrooms are clean and beautifully decorated with antiques. The beds and linens are fresh and very high quality offering a restful night sleep. I grew up in... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay. Mason and Patty are warm and welcoming hosts. The food is excellent, and we especially enjoyed Patty's cookies and pretzels! We look forward to returning very soon.

My wife and I were thoroughly pleased with our stay at the Glengairn Inn. It is the perfect place to stay when visiting Princeton, and the service was spectacular. Historic & charming, but with all the amenities we love. We enjoyed checking in with a glass of wine and the personal attention of Patty & Mason. We will be coming... More

Such a delightful stay in the Princeton area in a warm and inviting inn with wonderful, attentive hosts....Patty, Mason and "T". The breakfasts and stimulating conversations around the dining table started our morning off to a great start! We were in the area to research "family roots" and coming back to the Inn at the end of a full day... More
