About The Inn

Consistently earning the highest reviews for overnight accommodations in the Princeton area, Inn at Glencairn features the modern amenities of a boutique hotel in a meticulously renovated 1736 Georgian manor.

Guests are pampered with pristine en-suite baths, comfortable new mattresses and featherbeds featuring silky soft linens and down duvets, flat screen televisions as well as complimentary and reliable WIFI. Relax in our common areas and guest rooms which are graced with original art, eclectic antiques, and Oriental carpets. Grab a glass of complimentary wine to enjoy in our 19th century barn, or enjoy some peace and solitude wandering our nearly three acres of grounds.

Indulge in our complimentary farm-to-table breakfast featuring locally sourced and organic ingredients. Arguably the “best breakfast in town,” your feast may include our made-from-scratch fresh strawberry and raspberry preserves, nutty granola or buttermilk biscuits and berry scones. Showcasing farm fresh produce, our seasonal healthy breakfasts are so plentiful, you may decide to skip lunch altogether!

About The Innkeepers

Lydia Oakes

Lydia Oakes

After nearly 20 years of owning and operating her own business, Lydia returned to school to become a trained chef. That, along with her passion for travel and meeting new people, led to her career as an Innkeeper. (And, boy are we glad!) Innkeeping has taken her from Seattle to Paso Robles with stops in Friday Harbor, Colorado and Pennsylvania along the way. After over three years at the Inn at Glencairn, she still loves Princeton and will tell you just about anything you would like to know about the area. (She knows more than most natives!)

Lydia spends her spare time (of which there is little) dreaming up breakfast creations. Our breakfasts have NEVER looked this good, and we are so grateful she has “raised the bar” so high! Everything is made from scratch including pastries, breads, pancakes, quiches, frittatas, and French toast. The “locals” constantly ask if they can come just for breakfast, but we only serve our lucky overnight guests! Plus, not only will she cater to the most finicky of dietary restrictions, Lydia will create something everyone can enjoy.
