The Inn at Glencairn is a perfect example of why we love B&B's. Patty and Mason are charming, helpful hosts - from orienting you to the inn and the local sights and restaurants, to preparing and serving yummy breakfasts. We stayed in the Connah room and found it spacious and comfortable. We loved the chalk board in the garden area...

Beautiful comfortable rooms, warm and guest-focused attention from Mason and Patti, quality beverages and wine when you need it, and breakfasts prepared and served with care; none of those self-serve buffet breakfasts! We stayed there as base for a cycling vacation organized by NJ Bike Tours, who worked in with the Inn regarding timelines, bike storage, and protein-loaded breakfasts!! A...

Best B&B we've stayed in. Highly recommended! Patty and Mason were amazing hosts, and treated us like family. I highly recommend trying one of their supplemental services (we did the cheese basket)--it was beyond perfect!

We stayed here while visiting family in the area. It was the perfect solution for us to also enjoy a nice vacation. The house keeps its historical charm, but it has modern comforts. Breakfast can't be better, and coffee and wine in the common room made it even more comfortable.

As experienced B&Bers we are well aware that the realities of the experience sometime fall short of the web-site descriptions. Not so in the case of the Inn at Glencairn! The web site description falls well short of the actual experience. We are repeat guests at the Inn (Patty and Mason probably consider us repeat offenders), having stayed there during...

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....

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)...

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...
