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!

Everything a great bed and breakfast should. Individual attention and yet a warm community atmosphere. Thoughtful attention to detail and understated sincere hospitality. Our hosts Patty and Mason have first hand experience with what is available for restaurant fare and I would encourage anyone to take their recommendations

My husband and I were very pleasantly surprised to discover the gorgeous Glencairn! Situated in a serene country setting only minutes from downtown Princeton and Trenton, the high level of restoration and authentic attention to historic detail at this wonderful B&B was much appreciated, particularly given the oft-found overblown kitschiness encountered in some B&B's. Patty and Mason were warm and...

We visited the Inn at Glencairn during August of 2015 and had a very pleasant stay! Mason was a very kind, attentive host, and the new garden / private patio area he added to the yard was wonderful. Comfortable chairs, great atmosphere - even a string of lights! Room very clean, complementary wine...and delicious homemade cookies! Couldn't ask for more!...

Patty and Mason have done a wonderful job restoring this home and bringing back all of the historic charm along with modern amenities. My husband and I spent the weekend with my brother-in-law and wife and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Inn is conveniently located in Princeton near shops and restaurants, and on Saturday we drove to Lambertville (20 min) and...

Warm .. Elegant .. Historical .. Delicious .. Soothing .. Just a few words I would choose to describe the Inn at Glencairn. And, on top of all of that, Mason and Patti are not only first class hosts, but kind and compassionate people. Can't imagine a better bed and breakfast experience.

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...
