Inn at Glencairn, they have thought of every detail to make your stay inviting and personable. Patty & Mason were friendly and very accommodating. The Inn is comfortable enough to bring your family and romantic enough for two. The rooms were clean and luxurious and the breakfast was delicious! We won't hesitate to stay again when we're in the area.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Glencairn. Breakfasts were delicious, and the rooms were lovely. We especially enjoyed using the historic hearth room, playing Scrabble with our friends. The seasoned pretzels and home-made cookies and wine were an added bonus. Easy access ( approx. 3 miles ) to downtown Princeton with great dining and shopping. Patty and Mason are great hosts....

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

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.
