We were warmly greeted by one of the most professional Bed and Breakfast hosts I've encountered and given a quick tour with clear yet welcoming instructions for what to expect during our stay at Glencairn. We awoke after a good night's sleep on very comfortable beds to an absolutely gorgeous, multi-course breakfast, including a coconut lime tea bread, fruit, yogurt...

About 18 months ago, my wife and I were headed to Princeton. I was speaking up there and she thought we might find a fun inn to stay at, rather than the usual hotel. I told her it had to be reasonably priced so my expenses would be approved. She found the Inn at Glencairn, which met that condition and...

My wife and I spent the night at the Inn recently and had such a nice time. The room was clean, quaint and comfortable. Lydia is simply amazing and the breakfast was the best I have ever had. I would highly recommend the Inn at Glencairn to anyone wanting to escape and relax.

We read the other tripadvisor reviews before we booked and, following our stay, are pleased to report that the positive, bordering on effusive, comments are all true. Attractive, comfortable rooms, welcoming host, delicious full breakfast and all around warm feel make this an ideal B & B choice in the Princeton area. Would definitely return.

First, the inn is 300 years old. That in itself is cool. Walking inside the place, one immediately feels its history. The floorboards are wide and comforting. The commons area, with its plastered walls, has a serene atmosphere with the original cooking hearth flanking one end. The grounds have interesting outbuildings, including a barn, which makes hoofing around out there...

I've just spent 3 nights at the Inn and was delighted by its charm and location, but most of all by hostess Lydia's superb breakfasts and her warm and engaging welcoming and care. Many thanks to Lydia for her gracious hospitality and delicious food. The Inn is an easy drive into the delightful town of Princeton and a decent drive...

My husband and I decided to take a last minute overnight trip to Princeton as one last getaway before we have a baby. We found the Inn at Gelncairn had great reviews and we could not have been happier with our choice. The grounds were beautiful, the inn was cozy, the rooms were so comfortable (and I'm 7.5 months pregnant!)...

When home renovations required that we find nearby lodging for 3 days, Glencairn came immediately to mind. We pass it often and found it appealing from the outside. After a 3 day stay, Glencairn ranks at the very top of a long list of B&B experiences. There are many reasons for this but it all comes down to lovely Lydia,...

The Inn at Glencairn is the best B & B that I have ever stayed in! It is a historic property located just outside of Princeton University. The Inn was very peaceful! The place was absolutely spotless! The innkeeper, Lydia, is the best! She was so friendly, helpful and offered wonderful suggestions for dining at things to do!!! The food...
