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...

Stayed there for one night only as I had a business meeting close by. The welcome is exceptional, even late check-in worked perfectly. The house has historic charm, the hospitality is just great. If you don't have a reason to go to nowhereland deep in New Jersey, the Inn at Glencairn is worth it, and Princeton is very near.

Thank you for helping us make the wedding of our dreams a reality. Everything was exactly how we imagined it and more. Lydia kept everything running so smoothly and helping us keep calm. The food was delicious, the setting was idyllic. We couldn't have asked for anything else. Thank you, Angel and Yasmin R.

We enjoyed our one-night stay very much. The inn is full of history, right down to the original floorboards and walk-in fireplace. Coffee, cookies and wine are available for guests in the oldest part of the house which acts as a common room. The room was lovely with a high, 4-poster bed and very soft cotton sheets. There was a...

We were visiting a student at Lawrenceville, this was a perfect location. Wonderful room and the breakfast was delicious. We will back to visit again, after Thanksgiving. I am looking forward to my family being able to enjoy also.

The inn is a short ride to Princeton. The room we stayed in was very comfortable - the bed was great and sheets were so soft. The bathroom was bright with nice thick towels. The best part of our stay were the delicious breakfasts created by Lydia. She is a fantastic creative chef and very personable too. I highly recommend...

This Inn is lovely, beautiful setting, very easy access to Princeton. But the absolute best part of our stay was Lydia. She is a welcoming, caring, comfortable presence. And the breakfasts were excellent--a cut above any other bnb where I have stayed. There is plenty of space in the common areas for reading and exploring, red wine and chocolate chip...
