My husband and I just celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Candlelight Inn, and all we can say is if you don't have a wonderful experience here, you have no one to blame but yourself! We may not be "avid B&B vacationers", but we know true hospitality when we experience it. We had the rare opportunity of having the entire... More

The Candlelight Inn is a charming and romantic find on the Jersey Cape located in North Wildwood just minutes away from Cape May. My wife Sally and I found it a wonderful alternative to staying in Cape May. We love staying in the B&Bs in Cape May but they have become a bit inaccessible due to the high traffic and... More

Jim, We appreciate your insights and knowledge about the area. We agree that North Wildwood is a wonderful "quieter" alternative to Cape May. Plus you can still enjoy all that Cape May has to offer a short drive away. We hope to host you and your wife again soon so you can enjoy the ocean breeze on the verandah, Wanda... More

Thanks to Wanda and Michael for a great stay. The inn is beautiful and authentic and the hosts could not be any friendlier and accommodating. And the hot tub under the stars in winter is unbeatable. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for our anniversary and we will return if the occasion arises! The hosts were wonderful, the breakfast was delicious, the room was nice, clean, comfortable and quaint. Great stay! For pet lovers they have a pet friendly area. It is close to the boardwalk, the hosts are very helpful with information and will make reservations for you.

We have been guests of the Inn since 2007, and this visit was just as wonderful as every other! Wanda and Michael have stepped right in as if they have owned the Inn for years. Breakfasts were delicious. It was very enjoyable to try some new dishes. We were very happy to enjoy wine and homemade cookies each afternoon. Our... More

I have stayed at the Candlelight Inn B&B many times before, always in the summer. This was my first off-season visit and the first with the new owners. Michael and Wanda bring new and delicious recipes to the breakfast table, and their enthusiasm to please their guests is boundless. For now they are keeping to the former owners' customs and...

We had a very enjoyable 3-day stay at this Inn. The owners, Wanda and Michael, were very friendly, helpful and immediately made us feel welcome. There were many stories and much laughter shared during our time there. We had a choice of two breakfast dishes each morning and they were all delicious. We are looking forward to returning to this... More

Valerie, We were so pleased you chose to spend your husband's 80th birthday here! One of the joys we have as innkeepers is hosting important milestones in our guests lives. Your time here was special to us. We look forward to seeing you both again soon. Wanda and Michael More

We were surprised to see high ratings for this bed & breakfast. My husband & I spent 5 nights there & have no plans of returning. The inn was recently purchased by the new owners Wanda & Michael. Our opinion? Skip this bed & breakfast. You'll be better off spending an additional $25/ $35/night in a spacious apartment 1-2 blocks... More

We were surprised to see this review and we ask folks reading it to read the other reviews written since we took over. Except for this guest expecting us not to charge them for a day they “mistakenly” booked there were no complaints during their stay. The Candlelight Inn isn't simply a business to us -- it's our home. And... More

Have you ever gone somewhere and met someone and you immediately felt of like mind and very at home in this new situation? This is what we felt when we walked through the front door of the Candlelight Inn. It doesn’t happen often but when it does it is amazing. We came to North Wildwood to go to a car... More

They saying "second time is a charm" is perfectly fitting for this stay. We just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay (September 29-Oct 3), our son and his wife and my sister and her husband, we all had a great time. We booked this stay back in May and the inn was sold in July, and to be honest... More
