Cute place in Princeton, NJ

3.2 on March 20, 2014

It's not the Ritz Carlton. There's no room service, or turndown service, and no restaurant. But I knew that when I booked, so I'm not complaining. It close to friends in town that I was visiting, and I wanted a clean bed. This place delivers a very comfy bed, cute and quaint house (it's very old - built in 1600s and 1700s), and the innkeeper Jon and his wife were helpful. I love how the floors creaked, but I suspect not everyone does. It was quiet (big plus!) and relaxing. I am not a breakfast person - it's Raisin Bran and soy milk for me. So fair warning - though the brochure advertises "full gourmet breakfast," there's no bacon and eggs here. Because of its charm and quiet location, I'd return again.


A wonderful get away!

This a beautiful inn. The rooms were impeccably clean and cozy. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and well presented. We will stay here again!


We love this inn!

4.6 on December 03, 2013

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.


Very hospitable :)

What a delightful B&B

4.8 on May 22, 2013

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.
