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

For a quick getaway with friends, the Candlelight was perfect. Walking distance to the area shops and restaurants, beautiful spacious rooms, and private bathrooms fully stocked with amenities we might have forgotten. My friends who had never been to Sackets Harbor felt as if they were staying at a friends house but without the crowded shared bathrooms other Inns have.... More

I decided to look for a unique and quite place for a business trip overnight, in lieu of the standard hotels in Watertown. I love the Village of Sackets Harbor and drove through town and found Candlelight Guest house! The experience was terrific from the moment I arrived. Alice and Jerry have made their guest home cozy and inviting. The... More

My wife and I enjoyed the lovely Candlelight Guest House in Sacket's Harbor, NY, the night before a triathlon in the town. Not only was the location a mere two small blocks away from the race venue and local dining, it was right beside the race course and the Sacket's Harbor Battlefield and Park. Such convenience was not to be... More

A wonderful place to stay. It is situated on the battlefield and walking distance to the great restaurants in the town. Quiet, clean, and comfortable. When my father in-law couldn't make it at the last minute, Alice worked hard to fill his room so we would not be charged. He was very happy upon our return and we were grateful.... More

My husband and I stay at the Candlelight Guest House each summer for an extended weekend when our family is holding a family reunion in Henderson Harbor. It is definitely the nicest place to stay in the Sacketts Harbor area. Quiet, clean, comfortable and a nice location next to the battlefied/park. The rooms are outfitted well with all the expected...

We just returned from a Labor Day weekend stay at Candlelight Guest House. We found it to be delightful, and since we were in Sackets Harbor to run a race and the finish line was across the street, we had the best location in town. Our room and bathroom were large and meticulous. Alice our hostess was very accommodating. A... More

Although my wife and I travel a lot, we usually don't bother to write reviews. This is only our second one. The first was highly favorable. This one is not. The first warning was the sign that read :"Please remove shoes." OK. She's protective of her house. We can live with that, even though you could have eaten toast off... More
