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.
