Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • A laidback house, a large, comfy bed, AC, minutes from keys sites, like Princeton U. and the D&R Canal. Two large dogs were at first intimidating, then harmless.

  • The neighborhood was fine, the host seemed fine. The house was not clean, and after killing 5 large insects in the bedroom I was in, I checked out.

  • Mitch and his wife were friendly and warm hosts. Mitch reached out the day before my arrival via email to ensure I had proper directions to his home, and in general, was easy to get in touch with. The room was spacious and clean, with good wifi connection and a bathroom directly across the hall. The Rucko's have two large and friendly dogs waiting to greet you with barks and wagging tails, so I would recommend you feel comfortable around large animals (and don't have pet allergies) if you are interested in staying at this AirBnB. The neighborhood is quaint and there is an excellent pizza place walking distance from their home.

    Response from Mitchell:

    Thanks, I do mention the 2 large dogs in the description, but I will look at revising it.

  • Mitch is great, very welcoming and helpful. I would certainly recommend his place to stay. The house is on a quiet street, but not far from amenities.

    June 2014
  • Great stay and very affordable. We were mostly out of the house for events on Princeton's campus. Mitch was kind to stay up late to let us in on our first night, and we communicated by phone/text easily.

    June 2014
  • Mitchell's place was easy to find and his wife welcomed us into their home. They are located near the Princeton campus and in a very safe and residential area. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to meet Mitchell, but he was easy to contact and coordinate with.

  • I've really enjoyed my stay with Mitchell and his family. They were all very hospitable, and helped me around the area. They offered rides to Princeton University, and I've had dinner and breakfast with them, on several occasions. I felt very comfortable with the family and we had talked a lot about different subjects in the mornings or when I came back in the evening.
    The room was nice, clean with a comfortable bed, a desk and a TV. The shower was good, and they provided me with clean towels, soap etc.
    The house is conveniently located close to the bus that come from New-York.
    This was my first experience with AirBnB, and after this very positive experience, I believe that I'll use the service again.

  • Mitchell and his family are great hosts. They are all very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Mitchell even gave us a ride when we needed to get to and from Princeton. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was tasty, and the hospitality was top-notch. Overall a great place to stay!

  • It took me a little time to get familiar with the family, but Mitchell is very kind and talkative so things went fine. They were all very friendly to me, gave me rides to the university (5km, a long walk…) and also lend me a bicycle. I found in the room a delicious wood-house scent that reminded me of my grandfather's house. Thank you!

  • I had a great time staying with Mitch and his family. Quite honestly, I can see no reason why anyone looking for a place to stay in the Princeton area would look any further. The house and the room are clean and in perfect order, Mitch and Debbie are quite nice and easygoing, and the breakfast is a very nice touch. I stayed for two days and felt thoroughly welcome and comfortable.

    In addition, if anyone out there is worried about the presence of cats--fear not; I'm allergic to cats but had no issues with my allergy while staying with Mitch and his family. Granted, I did take my daily dose of Claritine out of precaution, but the cats were never even near my bedroom.
