Okay, now my wife and I have been in scores of B & B's over the years, and most have been worth the visit, but I've never been in one where the older portion of the house is 275 years old, and the "newer" portion of the house is 175 years old -- and it looks better than I!
But that's not the only reason we loved this Inn. It's located about three miles away from downtown Princeton and, of course, the University, so one doesn't hear lots of noise while trying to sleep, but it's a hop, skip and a jump to lots of fun stuff to do and see. Also, it's just a mile or so from Lawrenceville, with a number of great little restaurants. It's also close to other areas that we didn't have the time to see, but will do so on our next trip the the Inn.
Perhaps the best reason for staying at this Inn is the incredible care and love that goes into taking care of it by the husband and wife team. When we stayed there (May, '14), they had only been there a few weeks themselves, having moved on from ownership of their own B & B in North Carolina. The point here is that this isn't their first rodeo, and even though they don't own the place, they care for it as if they do. Both are very personable, and the breakfasts are award-winning. The room where we stayed was quite comfortable and spacious, and I have absolutely no doubt the other four are just as good. There's even the offer of a suite of two rooms, I believe in the older section of the Inn.
All I can say is that you won't be disappointed when you stay at the Inn at Glencairn -- for the comfort, the location, the food, and the friendship.
