Enjoy this spacious bedroom in a Civil War-era farmhouse on 2+ acres one mile from downtown Princeton. Feel at home with our extra comfy beds, fully-equipped kitchen, breakfast bar, large garden, bikes and nature trails.

The space

Your bedroom includes a king-size bed and a clothing rack. A full, private bath adjoins the room. There is a second, shared bath downstairs. Sheets, towels, toiletries and a bathrobe are available for your convenience and comfort.

A twin or double-sized aerobed can be provided for additional guests upon request (subject to availability). Room sleeps up to four.

Our house is situated on two and a quarter acres of sprawling lawn and 100+ year-old sugar maples, oaks, and pines. The house currently looks more 1950s than 1860s, but we hope in time to restore and reveal the house’s old bones. We are also currently working to replace some of the traditional, suburban landscaping with an organic fruit, vegetable, and flower garden). We keep chickens. Our property adjoins a nature preserve (great for trail running and walking).

Guest access

You'll share with us a kitchen, dining room, living room, deck, and sprawling backyard.

We've got a fully stocked self-serve breakfast & snack bar available throughout the day (cereals, fruit, yogurt, jam, tea, coffee, fresh eggs, sausage with many gluten-free/vegan/paleo options) and a kitchen with plenty of space for your groceries.

Cable TV + Netflix / Amazon Prime. High-speed Wifi both indoors and throughout most of the property. Board games. Lawn games. Chickens, flower garden, vegetable garden, young fruit trees & berries.

Ample parking. A limited number of bikes with helmets and locks are available for your use. Washer and dryer are in the basement.

Interaction with guests

We're a busy academic couple who enjoy opening our home to visitors from around the world. We rent several rooms, which means the house is always a little busy. Sometimes, we eat meals with our guests or a share a bottle of wine. There have been nights when the whole house has come together in fun and merriment around an open fire and guests leave life-long friends. At other times, we are scarce – traveling or hunkering down for a deadline or Jen may be experiencing a flare of her illness, in which case we appreciate your self-sufficiency. Sometimes our house is gorgeous and perfect. Sometimes, it's a little cluttered, the sheets are rumpled, and we run out of milk. In other words, it's a home. Every day is different, every stay is different. If you are looking for a professional hotel or bed and breakfast experience, this is probably not the right place for you. But if you'd like to stay in a pretty spot not too far from town and campus, close to nature, and with the possibility of being delighted, we look forward to hosting you!

Other things to note

We have a four-bedroom house and rent three bedrooms on the second floor. One has a private bath, the other two a shared, adjoining bath.

Jennifer and Onar's little farm is beautiful. It is really more of a bed and breakfast experience than your typical airbnb stay. The home is gorgeous, impeccably decorated, spotlessly clean, and only a few minutes from downtown Princeton and the Princeton University campus. My daughter and I stayed in room #2, which is enormous and could easily fit a kid or two on the sofa, in addition to the comfortable king-size bed. Everything one could possibly want or need was provided, from toiletries, to bathrobes and slippers, to numerous make-your-own breakfast choices including fresh eggs from their hens, and several gluten-free options. Even though they were gone when we were there, the communication was excellent and their lovely housekeeper helped us out in the mornings. I will definitely go back.

This house is lovely!! Jennifer and Omar pay great attention to the details of the home in order to make guests feel comfortable + have their needs met. It is on a great piece of property with beautiful scenery and the best porch! We loved our stay! Jennifer and Omar were also very communicative and quickly responsive.

Loved Jen and Omar's house! It's a welcoming farmhouse in a country setting. Although we didn't have the pleasure of meeting them since they were out of town on the holiday weekend, their communications were frequent, clear and sincere - most appreciated. The house is warm, cozy, comfortable - great commons area. The bedroom with en suite bathroom was large, comfortable and quiet. The location was close to Princeton, and close to local roads to explore other areas, like art (Grounds for Sculpture) farms & wineries (Terhune), breweries (River Horse) and other great towns. Parking is easy, outside grounds were easily accessible and lovely. We had one concern during our stay - which they promptly responded to and took care of immediately and with grace. So responsible and respectful - often don't see that in other airbnb hosts. Simply a wonderful weekend was had, and their home was a marvelous place to stay. We would stay again - Highly recommended.

Omar and Jennifer, I loved staying at your home. I felt like I was traveling in Europe. I loved staying in such old home. The bed was very comfortable. Thank you for breakfast, too. That was really nice. Thank you! Joy

The communication was fantastic and the ease of accessing the home was great and appreciated. While there were other guests present I never felt uncomfortable and felt like I had the house to myself. Any easy and nominal Lyft ride to campus. Would recommend to friends.

Jennifer User ProfileJennifer is a superhost.

I've recently moved to Princeton with my husband who is a professor. I'm an academic turned documentary filmmaker and sometimes homesteader.

This year we've harvested from our property: wild greens, berries, all sorts of vegetables, chestnuts (the most amazing you've ever tasted!), maple syrup, and the loads of fresh eggs daily.

This year we've seen on our property: loads of wild birds, vultures, hawks, great horned owls (they eat our poor chickens but make the most amazing sounds at night), deer, rabbits, groundhogs, and several species of turtles.
