My boyfriend and I stayed at the Candlebay Inn for a long weekend and couldn't have been more impressed. Connie, the innkeeper, was very sweet and welcoming and instantly had us feeling at home. She was very helpful with suggesting activities in the area as well as the good (and bad!) places to get a lobster roll! Every morning there... More

My dog Sam and I took a 3 day vacation up to Maine and choose the Candlebay Inn as our home base. It was the perfect choice. Connie, who runs the the inn, clearly delights in helping people discover places to go or whatever else they need. I needed to run up to LL Bean to return a coat and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with two of my teenage children. It was very clean and the owner is hospitable and helpful. Off the main road in Freeport so you do have to look for it. One of the few B&B's with more than one bed in the room. We had a great stay.

Stayed here one night and it was great. We had two kids and stayed one night and it was great. The room was large and clean and our host was excellent. They accept dogs but you wouldn't know it cause the rooms were immaculate and well kept we would definitely stay here again

We totally enjoyed our night with "Innkeeper" Connie at the Candlebay Inn. It was our first experience at a B & B and we were delighted to have such a wonderful hostess and nice accommodations.

The Candlebay Inn in Freeport, ME, is a great place to spend a night or more if you have the time. My family of four spent a night and really appreciated the friendly, helpful attitude of the proprietor. The room was clean and bright and very comfortable. Breakfast was prompt and delicious. There was coffee and tea and hot cocoa... More

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend here with our dog, Molly, and Connie could not have been more helpful. I inquired about a local dog walking service, as we were going to be out for the better part of one of the days, but Connie offered to walk Molly herself. Also, to meet our dietary requests, the chefs... More

We stayed in late April, 2015, under the new owner Connie. She was a wonderful hostess. The Inn more than met our needs. There are a few cosmetic tweaks that need to be made (Connie is aware and working on it), but for the price, location and ability to take my pet, it was a great choice. I would recommend... More

Rooms have a private bath which is a huge plus. Owners extremely accomodating. Breakfast was wonderful. Close to downtown shopping area if you wanted to walk. Price was reasonable although we have a complimentary gift certificate. It was easy to find and parking was adequate.

This inn, renamed the Candlebay Inn by its new owner, is a wonderful place to stay. Connie and her family are a pleasure to stay with, the inn has wireless with quick connectivity, and is off the main road in Freeport (easy access from the highway) so it is very quiet. Only the most recent reviews represent this wonderful inn... More
