“Exceptional Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2009

The Candlelight Inn is a beautiful home, but it is Nancy and Bill's attention to detail that makes a stay with them so exceptional. I cannot imagine a request they have not already considered and prepared for. Breakfast is delicious, the rooms are neatly appointed, parking is convenient and anything a guest could want is available. If you are planning a trip to the Jersey Shore stay at the Candlelight.

Just returned from a wonderful but too-short visit to the Candlelight Inn in North Wildwood. We had a business meeting to attend, and were delighted to be able to stay in such a charming inn. Bill and Nancy were wonderful, welcoming hosts. Our room was the Drawing Room, on the lower level, which had been recently redecorated with pretty green wallpaper. Fabulous bathroom with double whirlpool tub. Great ocean breezes from the two windows almost made us want to turn on the cute romantic fireplace. Nice flat-screen TV. In fact, they've thought of everything. Right outside our door was a little refreshment center, with complimentary cold sodas, which were very welcome. There was also an individual coffee brewer by Braun which we used to make our wake-up cups of coffee in the morning, and a computer with printer which we used to check our email. After relaxing on the patio right outside the door, we enjoyed a walk to the Boardwalk just a few blocks away to stretch our legs. The Candlelight Inn's location is perfect-close enough to the beach and boardwalk, but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle. Bill & Nancy recommended a fabulous restaurant in North Wildwood, Claude's for dinner. We enjoyed great seafood in the Italian style, including delicious desserts. Luckily we saved room for their great breakfast the next morning after a comfortable sleep. We had a choice of sign up times, so we chose 9:30, since our meeting wasn't until later in the day. We had eggs benedict with pork roll, a seashore tradition, and peach granola pancakes. Both delicious. But that wasn't all. The meal started with warm grapefruit halves broiled with honey, then huge, warm pina colada muffins. Of course lots of juice and coffee from serve yourself pitchers on the table, plus great conversation with the other two couples at the table. We were sorry to have to leave, but look forward to another visit to North Wildwood and the Candlelight Inn, and especially Bill & Nancy's hospitality.

We stayed at the Candelight Inn for three nights and had the most wonderful experience. Upon arrival, we were promptly and warmly greeted and given a thorough explanation of where to find everything. We were made to feel at home and welcome. Each morning we were treated to a wonderful breakfast and hospitality by the hosts and staff. It seemed that every detail of what a guest would like to have was thought of and available. Bill and Nancy really care about their guests and that the guests have a very positive experience. The Inn is beautiful and spotless! The rooms extremely private and comfortable. We particularly liked the afternoon wine and freshly baked cookies every day at 5:00, which we enjoyed while we sat on the beautiful and spacious front porch. We would recommend the Candelight Inn to anyone and we will definitely return again.

The owners Bill and Nancy make you feel at home once you step into their establishment. They provide a gourmet breaksfast every morning, with Eggs Benedict on Sundays! Every afternoon they have coffee, tea or wine and delicious cookies to feast on! The inn is well cared for and provides a very cozy environment with all the amenities.

5 stars doesnt do the Candlelight justice! The inn is located on a quiet peaceful street The house is architecturally Victorian. Each room is as wonderful as the next offering many amenities. The bed and linens are as soft as butter! The food is oustanding and unique. You are made to feel right at home, and will want to return again and again!

This is our 3rd year visiting the inn. My husband and I come down for our anniversary and the Roar to the Shore bike rally. The inn is great place to come back to and relax. The innkeepers, Bill and Nancy are always great, but this year they went beyond! We got held up in a bad rain storm, and they made sure our bikes we secured and made being cooped up tolerable. Breakfast is always great, 3 courses. And an afternoon of homemade cookies, hits the spot!

Thanks alot Bill and Nancy!
see you again next year!
