Mason & Patty, the husband/wife Innkeepers were extremely pleasant, the room was beautifully decorated with "heavenly bed" type comforter and pillows, and the french toast for breakfast the next morning was to die for! (and mine made on gluten-free bread, per my request and I kid you not, it was STILL delicious!) The property isn't walking distance to Nassau Street...

Relaxed atmosphere, with nice common rooms where you can sit and read or chat. Comfortable. Not too fussy, not overly elegant, just-right decor. Good mattress, and well furnished room. Great breakfast. Hosts are accommodating and friendly, but not intrusive. Would definitely come back.

Rooms are very nice, great bathrooms. Historic house close to Princeton. Great place to stay to visit the area. Breakfast was great on both days that we stayed. We definitely will go back when we visit our son.

My family arrived late at night, but the innkeepers "kept the light on" for us. We were welcomed with homemade cookies and tea or a glass of wine, and enjoyed them in this home's beautiful living room. Our rooms were clean and comfortable, and we only wish we could have stayed longer! Wonderful breakfast as well. Hope to come back...

My husband and I stayed here for 1 overnight for my birthday getaway. I was blown away by Inn at Glencairn. It is so beautiful and authentic. We felt at home right away after meeting Patty and Mason. Great conversation and so warm and friendly. The Inn was close to our dinner reservations and the bike trail we were riding...

On a recent visit to NJ, I chose the Inn at Glencairn for a 7 night stay after considering local hotels and VRBO options. As I was travelling solo, I wanted a place that was well located, felt warm and welcoming and was safe. I made the right choice. The Inn is a beautiful old home with some parts dating...

We stayed in the Hunt room. The king sized bed was so comfortable and cozy! We had the best night's sleep. It was so pretty looking out the windows at the fall foliage in the morning. The Inn was immaculate and the breakfast and added treats were delectable. They thought of everything to make us feel at home. The Inn...

We visited the Inn at Glencairn during Princeton's move in weekend this year and it was a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of campus and Nassau Street, but just minutes away! The Inn is special, the grounds so peaceful, and Mason and Patty are wonderful hosts. Our rooms were well appointed and the beds were very comfortable. It...

Just returned from our visit from Princeton & was not disappointed! The room was great, we felt extremely comfortable! Mason and Patty are wonderful! We stayed in the Connah Room which had a back staircase down to the room where you can get coffee & cookies before breakfast!

This was a perfect addition to our overnight trip - charming, comfortable, clean plus wonderfully restored architecture in the 18th century timeframe. I can't rave enough over the breakfast prepared for us. This will be at the top of our list for return visits to the Princeton area. Photo of guests at breakfast!
