Among the choices of Bed & Breakfast spots in Red Wing, MN, the Candlelight Inn is cleaarly a standout. There are many tangible reasons why this is true, including the beautiful Victorian era home and amenities to the location/proximity to downtown Red Wing. However, it's the intangible aspects of the Candlelight Inn that provide the real draw and contribute to the high level of satisfaction one receives for a stay. Without a doubt, the B & B experience is as much a reflection of the passion of the owner/propriters as is the physical characteristics of the residence itself. Lynette and Zig Gudrais of the Candlelight Inn are warm, inviting owners/hosts. They provide the added touches that separate a good B & B from and excellent B & B. It's not an easy vocation to manage a B & B but Lynette and Zig make it look easy. Yhe rooms are unique and impeccably furnished and maintained. The wine and cheese and other assorted small plates each evening are a great touch. The morning coffee & tea cart, along with fresh-baked pastries are fantastic. And the breakfasts are absolutely kick-butt :-) You must stay here - a wonderful, romantic place to get away for a night or a week.
