Everything about this place is perfect. The inn keeper is amazing on all fronts. It is incredibly clean. You feel completely welcome. All possible needs are anticipated. Comfortable beds, lovely details, phenomenal food.

Scrumptious and Beautiful

It has been awhile since I stayed at IAG. And while I typically loathe travelling for business, I certainly have no qualms coming to Princeton if there is availability at the Inn. Besides the beautiful, well cared for surroundings that have been a constant over the many years I have been going there, on a recent visit I especially enjoyed the delicious, inventive breakfasts that were prepared from the freshest local ingredients. Some of the guests opted for the "spa breakfast," which seemed more standard -but still fresh and delicious- fare, but I went full monty each day I was there; and each breakfast seemed (unbelievably) better than the one before it. I can't say enough about the hospitality of the staff and the tranquility of the environs. It is truly a special place.

Inn was overall very nice. We had the suite and it was a good setup. Beautiful Grounds! Breakfast was plentiful and the chocolate home made truffle was first rate. However, the breakfast entree was disappointing. It was polenta with fried eggs. The polenta was not anything special and the eggs were runny and not appreciated by all our group. We think the eggs should have been offered cooked hard and we really thought they would go with the polenta better if cooked that way. The bottom line is not everyone likes runny eggs. The peppers and onions were a bit on the greasy side and added nothing to the breakfast. The bacon was excellent.

Great bed, great breakfast

Very convenient to Lawrenceville, and felt more like a special trip than we when usually stay at the Hyatt. It's an old building, so you can definitely hear your neighbors, but everyone was very considerate. Would definitely recommend, and the breakfast too!

history meets comfort

our relatives in nearby lawrenceville have long recommended this B & B to us, but for many years we traveled with our dog, and pets are not allowed. we were finally able to book our first stay for this past weekend and it was worth the wait! because we were busy with a family event, we did not get to spend much time at the inn beyond sleeping, showering and breakfast. that and the fact that it rained pretty heavily all weekend kept us from exploring the grounds, which are beautiful and serene. i especially wanted to see the barn, which looked to me to potentially be a fabulous, rustic place to host an intimate gathering. the inn itself is warm and welcoming and steeped in history. the floors are creaky and uneven, which only adds to the charm. our room (the suite) was spacious and comfortable, had all the modern conveniences, and felt very private (2nd floor of the stone portion of the building). breakfast (a choice between 2 options) was delicious and skillfully prepared by lydia, the friendly and informative innkeeper & chef. she thoughtfully prepared a vegan-friendly breakfast option for our daughter, who sadly at the last moment was unable to join us. lydia's after-breakfast chocolate truffle was fabulous & right up my alley!! the inn is very convenient to shopping and dining in princeton, while being far enough out of town (3 miles?) to be a peaceful and quiet haven (rumors of a friendly resident ghost notwithstanding)! we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return, hopefully in better weather.
