The accommodations at the house were very comfortable and clean. The linens/towels were nice, mattress was good, and the bathroom well appointed with everything you might need. There were a few minor things that I am not a fan of, such as carpet in the bathroom, endless knickknacks, and the owner's rule that one must take one's shoes off while... More

We enjoyed two comfortable nights at the Candelight Guest House. It is situated near Lake Ontario right next to a state park - offered a beautiful sunset. The hosts were inviting and friendly and made our stay relaxing. Room was cozy and comfortable - bathroom was a good size with a great shower. The hosts provided helpful information of where...

The Candlelight Guest House was as perfect as they come. Location, location... The house backs up to the lake and bike path which encircles the historic battlefield. 5 minute walk to any fabulous restaurant and shops. Quiet, clean and impeccably appointed.

This is the third time we have stayed at Candlelight and we feel now just the same as we felt back in 2009 on our first visit. The room was impeccable and our host, Alice, was as friendly and hospitable as ever. By being next to a beautiful park, the Inn offers great views of Lake Ontario especially in watching... More

Sweet place! Beautifully decorated, ultra clean and tidy. Surrounded by lovely grounds and flowers with places to sit outside. Good ventilation on hot summer nights with fans, a/c and windows that open. Alice has provided everything with great forethought. A fridge upstairs gives you a place for your snacks and drinks. Wireless is free. TV is good. Location is great...... More

We stayed at the a Candlelight in June 2015 for our anniversary. It was warm and welcoming. The view of the lake was beautiful and it is walking distance from many restaurants. Can't wait to stay here again.

Even my husband said that this was the best place we have ever stayed. Everything was perfect, room, sheets, view inside and out....the best was the owners Alice and Jerry. They are fantastic people. The room was very, very clean. A small town with friendly people.

The Candlelight Guest House is a wonderfully maintained historic house. We stayed there for our wedding anniversary and our first trip to Sackets Harbor. It's located a half block from the War of 1812 battlefield and Lake Ontario, a few short blocks to the harbor and great waterfront restaurants and shops. Alice was a friendly host. We highly recommend it.... More

My wife, and I have been visiting the Candlelight for many years and Alice is the gracious host you want to see at the end of a road trip. The Ontario Room is spacious and my wife truly enjoys a hot bath after settling in. Alice takes extra care to include anything and everything needed so the only thing on... More

A location next to the 1812 Battlefield, along Lake Ontario, is a lovely and quiet setting for the Candlelight Guest House. The host made us feel at home and relaxed in her comfortable, clean guest home. If you are a history buff there are many 1812 historical attractions in the quaint town, as well as good restaurants. (Even if you... More
