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

The space
Enjoy this rustic, four bedroom, three bathroom, Civil War-era farmhouse just a mile away from Princeton University campus and downtown Princeton. Ample parking. A limited number of bikes and helmets are available for your use. NOTE: We cannot host weddings.

The second floor includes a master bedroom with king-size bed and private bath, and two additional bedrooms with queen-size beds and shared bath. All of those bedrooms have twin XL trundle beds. The first floor includes a bedroom/study with full-size futon, a third full bath, large living room with fireplace, dining room, and eat-in kitchen. Laundry and dryer in the basement.

We also have a deck with a fire bowl and grill.

In total, there are three Queen beds, one King, two optional firm Queen sofa beds. Also, there are two Twin XL mattresses and one Queen aerobed that can be provided for additional guests upon request (subject to availability). Please contact us to discuss total number of guests.

Our house is situated on two and a quarter acres of sprawling lawn and 100+ year-old sugar maples, oaks, and pines. The house was initially built in the 1860s and then expanded with a large living room and master bedroom in the 1950s. With time, we hope to restore and reveal more of 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)..

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.

During your stay

We travel a lot and may or may not be around. If we are in town, we'll be on the grounds but staying in a tiny home (a separate, small cabin tucked away in the woods).
