I spent three nights at this lovely B&B while visiting Luding, MI. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the innkeeper, Melanie, is absolutely delightful. She is so accommodating and cooks a great breakfast each morning. A special treat each evening is dessert for her guests. I loved the chocolate torte and hate to admit that I had three... More

The owners of the Candlelite Inn are some of the nicest people you will meet anywhere. The breakfast was suburb. We stayed three nights and each morning was a new and delightful experience. We were treated to the best Monkey Bread ever, great varieties of french toast, souffles, fruit, bacon, etc. The quantity was almost overwhelming. All day and night... More

This B & B is an excellent location close to Lake Michigan beaches and state park. The host and hostess were friendly and good cooks. There was plenty to choose from for breakfast and the evening snacks were appreciated. It was very accommodating to be able to choose your own time to eat breakfast and it was nice to be... More

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night. Our hostess was very welcoming and accommodating. She made sure we had everything we needed or wanted, even asking us if she could pick up anything in town for us! We stayed in the "romantic suite" which is located at the back of the house. It was a nice, large room... More

To begin the food is amazing! The host is a terrific cook and you won't leave hungry. There are snacks set out all the time to munch on. The host is very accommodating and makes you feel at home. We stayed in the Victorian room and it was nice and cozy. We peaked at a couple of the other rooms... More

We stayed here recently with a number of family members (including my Dad and his sister, who are in their 80s). Our hostess was so kind and considerate and made us all feel right at home. We spent hours on the front porch playing cards and enjoying each others' company. I don't know how our stay could have been any... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay. The room was a littler smaller than the photo. The Hostess was super, the breakfast and snacks were ample .If anything was out t of kilter at times the owner was too pleasant.... is that possible? The beeches are great, unlike other western Michigan coast lines , white soft sand with not rocks... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week as a part of our honeymoon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Candlelite Inn. We stayed in two rooms during our stay, both of which were clean and comfortable. Melanie is the innkeeper and she is very personable and hospitable and made our stay in Ludington amazing. Since we stayed... More

We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast and decided that this would be our first. Melanie was so nice and accommodating and she just wants her guests to be happy. She makes amazing snacks and the breakfast is beyond words... We had the romantic retreat suite which is definitely the best one. You have a jacuzzi and the... More

I visit family in Ludington every summer and always stay here. The rooms are beautiful with a different theme for each one (and clean too!). Melanie, the innkeeper/hostess is the best cook and baker anyone could wish for and you should expect to gain a pound or two just from breakfast! One can enjoy it either in the Victorian dining...
