We spent a night at the Inn at Glencairn celebrating our third anniversary. The host, Jon, greeted us warmly when we arrived. He gave us a tour of the house and told us all sorts of cool history about the building and grounds. Our room was lovely- warm, clean, and well-maintained. The big bathroom included a tub, which was so relaxing! Breakfast the next morning was delicious and fresh. Jon gave us recommendations for local places to visit and let us walk around the grounds outside. Highly recommend the Inn at Glencairn for a weekend getaway or just a quick night away.

The room was spacious, bright and cheery. Great food at breakfast. The house sits on 3 acres and so we took a lovely stroll about the grounds. Very easy access to Princeton. Friendly and helpful inkeepers (we got a few tips we will use on our own old house). The place is very well kept.

It's always fun to experience history at a B&B. Part of this home dates back to the time of Washington. I loved John's stories about the history and hearing about the garbage door, sized from the shortest available plank, and the candle placers in the shelves. The rooms are big and even the bathrooms are classy. I wish I had reason to be in this area more. I'd be back.

My Husband and I enjoyed our stay very much at Glenncairn. The Inn is really wonderful and the room and bathroom was clean and lovely. The care giver was filling in at the time Teresa was her name and she was lovely. She made a little cheese and fruit tray for my husband and me when we arrived as we were hungry. For breakfast we had sausage and a wonderful fruit french toast casserole. It was a warm and relaxed atmosphere and we both will return! Jennifer Keen and Lou Schoenike

The Inn at Glencairn exceeded our expectations. The home is lovely and a fine example of 18th century architecture that has been well preserved. The rooms are nicely decorated and uncluttered. The innkeepers, Susy and Jon are welcoming and very accommodating. Our breakfast was filling and delicious. We would return again!

I love history and this B&B was full of it! Apon checking in, Jon was there to give us a small tour and history of the home- showed us all the rooms...and offered us a glass of wine. Although we thought we were one of two guests there- we woke up to a full breakfast table with 4 other couples. The rooms were very clean and bright, the bathroom had nice updates that didn't take away from the homes character. My one desire for the breakfast, was toast or a slice of meat...we were served peaches with a cream(very good) and an egg souffle and a wedge of melon. I left a bit hungry and had to stop for food on the drive home! Otherwise, it was a beautiful home in a lovely part of NJ.

This was a disappointing experience. This inn looks much better on the website than it does in person. The rooms are okay, but not very well appointed. The "gourmet" breakfast was mediocre and offered no choice. We stayed here so we could have a night out in Princeton; next time we'll stay at the Nassau Inn. There is really no value for money here.

We arrived in the middle of the late October Nor'Easter Snowstorm of 2011. Arriving late, the Innkeepers made us very comfortable and ensured that our stay was memorable. Room & decor were immaculate and beautiful, breakfast was delicious. Jon and Susana helped tremendously with a special surprise for my wife's birthday. Fabulous Inn and wonderful Innkeepers.

Our time at the Inn was a comfortable visit to the area. The history of the inn as well as the conversation with the innkeeper made the trip memorable. Highly recommend a visit!

Everything was lovely. I can't recommend the place highly enough. I would love to go back sometime.

The Inn at Glencairn, like the small city of Princeton, NJ is very old, quaint and remarkably beautiful. My wife and I have stayed there twice now and hope to return again before too long. The innkeeper was an absolute delight. Very friendly and welcoming. The house is early 18th century magnificent, and the food was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in or near Princeton.

We just had a lovely stay at the Inn at Glencairn near Princeton. Bob was a very gracious host and quite accommodating. It's about a 10 minute drive to Princeton, which makes it the perfect distance away from most of the bus and traffic noise. The room was quiet and wonderful. The house is very charming, and we spent some time simply walking around taking pictures before heading to town. Our only complaint was that we could not open the windows because they didn't have screens in them yet. Of course, it would be the warmest day in weeks, so the air wasn't on yet. There were also problems with what I call "sticky bugs" -- bugs that attach themselves to carpet or any other fabric. We killed five in a two-night stay. I would definitely recommend the Inn at Glencairn. The service is fantastic, and it really is a great place to stay and enjoy a weekend.

We just returned from a two-nite stay at the Inn at Glencairn. The rooms and common areas were lovely- nicely decorated and more comfortable than many B&Bs we've stayed in. The innkeeper was accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was great. We would definitely return.

Timing was spring, everything was in bloom - it was beautiful. Bob, the inn keeper greeted my outside, and gave me a tour and history of Inn. Parts are original from the 1600's! Room was clean, bed was very comfortable, and having a flat screen TV was a bonus. I had guests meet me at the inn, and we sat in one of the open areas. I served wine, like a true host. I would return, and do recommend anyone to stay

We stayed at the Inn at Glencairn for my 40th birthday. The common areas are beautiful and nicely decorated with fine art and a mix of antiques and down sofas. The rooms are well appointed with the most comfortable beds and modern clean bathrooms. Breakfast was delicious and Bob the Innkeeper was helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone!
