Enjoy this cozy bedroom in a 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
Your bedroom includes a full size XL bed, a dresser, desk, and closet. Bathroom is just across the hall. Sheets, towels, toiletries and a bathrobe are available for your convenience and comfort.

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.

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.

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'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 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!
