Lovely Inn

5 on September 19, 2017

We had a very enjoyable stay at the Glencairn. The wine and fresh baked cookies were a nice touch in the great room. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was very clean. I needed a wheat free breakfast and Lydia accommodated my allergies with delicious home made oatmeal. Would definitely go back


Romantic get-away

We had a great visit to Princeton. I ordered the chocolate covered strawberries as an add on and enjoyed the extra touch. Breakfast was excellent right to the very end, with a homemade truffle!

My daughter and I loved our stay! Lydia was very warm and friendly. The home, while old, did not have that musty door that has often been our experiences at other. Glen cairn was very clean and comfortable.

We loved our time at this charming historic inn in the quaint and upscale area next to Princeton NJ. It is so rich in history! The rooms were lovely, clean and provided enough modern amenities to be extremely comfortable. Lydia with the outstanding breakfast and customer service made the Inn an outstanding choice that we would love to return again.

This inn is a breath of fresh air. We wished we could have stayed longer. I am hoping my daughter goes to college near by so I can go back to the inn.

Everything is made from scratch including pastries, quiches, frittatas, and her own version of Eggs Benedict. One reason guests come back: Her signature breakfast dessert…homemade Java Truffles!
