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...

I work for an organization that routinely has to house visiting professionals. Normally we make reservations for our guests at a large (and frankly, plebeian) conference hotel on the other side of town. But, after speaking with friends I decided to contact The Inn at Glencairn for our next guests. The Inn at Glencairn is a small historic property on...

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...

The Inn at Glencairn is my first choice when I am in the Princeton area on business. It is charming, warm and immaculate. Lydia makes a mean breakfast and is extremely flexible when it comes to checking in or accommodating any need you may have. There are homemade cookies, wine, tea in the common living room always available. The Inn...

Loved my stay here. The room was very comfortable and kitted out with everything needed for a pleasant stay. The breakfast was terrific, but consider requesting in advance a dinner as well: Lydia went to culinary school, and her meals are outstanding. It was lovely to have a meal in the beautiful dining room with a fire in the fireplace...

We loved this Inn and our only regret is that we didn’t find it sooner. My partner and I have been visiting Princeton University at least once a year for the past 15 years, and used to not be entirely happy with the hotel options. The Inn at Glencairn is a 10 minute bus ride away from the University (in...
