This is one of the better places I've stayed. Stayed for a business trip. The host was excellent and it felt like staying at grandpa's farm house. I'd go again.

Nice if you like historic inns

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Susie and John, the hosts, were wonderfully gracious and served excellent breakfasts. The other guests were friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed, and the house had plenty of rooms to sit, read, work on PC. The inn dates back to the early 1700s and has antique-looking furniture. I didn't rate it excellent in all categories because I'm not a fan of creaking floorboards, small showers, and plank closet doors. Princeton is spread out and woodsy so the inn is not in or close to town, the train station, and restaurants -- a 10 minute drive at best.
