I loved that this inn not only allows children (ages 10 & up) but that it even offers a family suite to accommodate families. The room with the hearth from the 1600's was a lovely place to sit and sip the wine that was provided. Our kids also enjoyed playing board games that we had brought with us in that... More

At the last minute, we decided to stay during our day trip to Princeton and so glad that we did! We had such a warm welcome. The place is so cozy and the remainder of the snow outside made it even more picturesque. The room was beautiful, clean and there was also complimentary water and waffle dressing gowns. There was...

I am at a loss to understand the "average" reviews. The living room "gloomy"? It is a large, comfortable room with a hearth from the 1600s where the Innkeepers set out white and red wine, coffee, tea, and snacks for the guests, gratis. The furnishings "hotelish"? There are antiques throughout where I wanted them, and modern "hotel" quality beds -... More

We checked into a hotel nearby that was so bad that at 9pm we left the room immediately, called the Inn at Glencairn and although now late at night, they welcomed us to the Inn, even prepared a wonderful late night supper for us, had white wine waiting in the guest room on ice and a great red. The Inn... More

My wife and I, local to the Princeton area, spent an overnight at the Inn at Glencairn and had an absolutely wonderful time. The Inn is both historic and beautiful. The innkeepers, Patty and Mason, immediately make you feel welcome; we spent the first couple of hours of our visit unwinding in the comfortable Great Room and enjoying a glass... More

The Inn at Glencairn was a wonderful place to stay. The house has a ton of history which can be felt as soon as you walk through the doors. The Inn is a short, 5-10 minutes, from Nassau St in Princeton. Mason and Patty make guests feel right at home. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The innkeepers are the perfect balance between being welcoming and friendly without being over the top or overbearing. They also have a good sense of how much history to chat about without getting boring. There is a lot of interesting history to be felt and admired at this inn, whether you want the nitty... More

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
