We most loved the Great Room! Beautiful and historic. We felt like we had gone back in time. The grounds are beautiful! Love the barn! We hope to... More

We stayed here one night to get away from it all. The innkeeper was very polite and courteous. Our room was spacious, clean and very quiet, with a grand view of the grounds (complete with barn). You can relax in the common area downstairs and have wine, water, coffee, etc. any time you want. The innkeeper will make a custom... More

We needed to be at Princeton Seminary for an event and stayed at Inn at Glencairn. It was a lovely experience. The inn is tastefully restored but not overdone and the innkeeper so welcoming. We would highly recommend this convenient location to any one visiting the campus.

My boyfriend and I were at the inn last weekend for a wedding and stayed saturday night. The inn was beautiful and well kept. We met the owners of the inn who gave us the entire history of the home and the role it played for George Washington and his troops! Very cool. But regardless, the rooms were very cozy... More

My daughter and I chose The Inn at Glencairn as our home base for visiting Princeton University. Located only three miles from town, it was a quick Uber ride to Nassau Street and back. What we might have missed by being right off campus, we surely gained in the lovely quiet of the Inn and the PHENOMENAL breakfasts Lydia made... More

We were in town for my brother's graduation and all the hotels were booked (luckily!) came upon the Inn at Glencairn and we are so glad we did!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn for the second time. New innkeeper, Lydia, welcomed us and made us feel at home. Her breakfasts were superb and the fresh chocolate chip cookies in the study a real treat. We will be staying at the Inn again - each time we visit family in Princeton.
