Stayed here with my daughter for a family visit. Set back from the road, it is a charming inn. The rooms were spacious, well appointed with all the amenities (nice robes), yet decor was in keeping with the historic character of the inn. Unfortunately, due to our schedule, we were unable to sample the homemade pretzels at the afternoon reception,... More

My husband and I live locally, but we went to the Inn at Glencairne for our wedding anniversary. We arrived early and enjoyed a glass of wine and just sitting in the beautiful yard relaxing. Our room was lovely, the afternoon cookies and breakfast delicious, and the staff friendly and professional. The next day, we again just sat out in... More

Okay, now my wife and I have been in scores of B & B's over the years, and most have been worth the visit, but I've never been in one where the older portion of the house is 275 years old, and the "newer" portion of the house is 175 years old -- and it looks better than I! But... More

Stayed with my wife here in April 2014. The Inn has a lot of character and grace. The beds are comfortable and the setting is "romantic". Every morning a different breakfast is served (not a buffet). They put a lot of effort into the breakfast, but it might not be to your liking and then you have little other choice.... More

Thank you for taking time to review the Inn. I am glad that you found the beds comfortable, the setting romantic and the Inn full of character and grace. However, I am sorry that part of your experience was less than stellar. Since your stay, we have new Innkeepers, Mason and Patty, who -- after only a few short weeks... More

My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Glencairn during Mother's Day weekend 2014. The week before we arrived, the inn went through an innkeeper transition. We received a gift certificate from a family member 2 Christmases ago for a night at the B&B, which had actually expired a month before making the reservations. The old innkeepers were nice... More

We stayed here after our wedding and it was the perfect little getaway. It's so charming! The innkeepers are very nice and made a fantastic breakfast in the morning. They also had delicious homemade snacks in a common area, which made it feel like home. The house has a lot of history and the room we stayed in was beautiful.... More

Mason and his wife were wonderful hosts. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated. Wine and snacks were available for us when we arrived in the evening. What a nice way to welcome us after a long day of sightseeing. The Inn Breakfast was fabulous. We will definitely be back.

I had called for a gift certificate for my husband for Christmas and the one I received was soiled, it looked as it had been used previously. I called to get another one and the innkeeper with whom I spoke was less than gracious. My husband and I just spent a weekend at Glencairn and the new innkeepers had only... More

We'd have loved to stay here longer. Beautiful inn with masses of old world charm, yet all the modern comforts required. Add to this an excellent breakfast and we're certain that THE new innkeepers - Patti and Mason - will make a real success of this.

Very friendly innkeepers, lovely setting and convenient. Room was quite comfortable and breakfast was excellent. Patty and Mason explained that they were the new innkeepers, only three days in, but made every effort to make our short stay pleasant. Very nice experience.
