We enjoyed our stay at the Candlelight Inn. While there isn't much to explore in Dryden, it was very convenient to Ithaca and much less expensive than comparable places in Ithaca. Our room was very comfortable, with a good mattress and bright colors. The bathroom was a little cramped but fine. Breakfast was a feast beginning with fresh berry-orange scones... More

It seems that to stay in a B & B in the Ithaca area on weekends (and possibly along the Finger Lakes), you need to book it for two days. We were fortunate to get the Eagle View room for one night on a Saturday. It was a last minute reservation. The place is very well decorated and from what... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a lovely, two room suite with a great bathroom/double whirlpool tub. Despite being on the Main St. in Dryden, it was exceptionally quiet. The pool was lovely, and very close to our room. The breakfast on the weekend days we visited was one of the best we've had in many stays; really a brunch... More

Stayed for two nights in May. We were made to feel very welcome. It is an historic home, beautifully maintained and furnished. The rooms are extremely comfortable with every need anticipated. Breakfasts were delicious, served in a gracious dining room with relaxing music - a great way to start the day.. Doris was very helpful with recommendations and directions, and... More

We traveled from CO, CA to see family in mid Feb. It was below zero most days and this was a warm haven. Doris is wonderful, the property was clean and comfortable. I will stay again. Thank you Doris for a fantastic place to stay.

Went to Cornell University for my dog who was undergoing surgery. With limited knowledge of the area and limited funds, finding this place was a godsend. Doris was helpful in finding nearby places to eat, the room was clean and the place was pet friendly.

We were visiting our daughter at Cornell and decided to stay here after reading all the wonderful reviews. Our hostess Doris had forgotten we were coming but soon made us feel at home. She upgraded us to a larger suite as we were the only guests at the time. She explained everything to us clearly and pointed out some attractions.... More

My wife and I booked the Fireplace Suite for our 15th anniversary. The inn was recommended by a friend who said that it would be close to the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail and that friends of his had stayed here and thought it was wonderful. We were not disappointed in the least and the word "wonderful" does not begin to... More

Doris welcomed us in from the blustery night, with the warmth of a family welcome. Her recommendation and call ahead for our dinner reservation was just the tip of her hospitality. Her non intrusive presence was comforting. The Inn is spectacular and the pictures do not do it justice. Her attention to detail and concern for our comfort were above... More

Came here based on other reviews and I don't think they did it justice. Our room was lovely and immaculate. The Inn itself is charming and beautifully maintained. The breakfasts, alone, were worth the price! Absolutely delicious and so filling we didn't have lunch for three straight days. Doris, the innkeeper, is super friendly and helpful. She went out of...
