“Tripadvisor did not lie”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

We found the Candlelight on bandbfinder looking for a reasonably priced bed and breakfast to begin a week away. Nancy and Bill were tremendous hosts. The room was wonderful. The front porch was inviting. And the three course breakfasts were remarkable. Though I do think the second most requested muffin, pistachio something hot from the oven, was better than number one! Will recommend.

The Candlelight Inn is a lovely and charming Inn that is within walking distance of the boardwalk. They have a parking lot, so you do not have to worry about finding a spot during the busy summer season. It is in a perfect location Nancy greeted us and took us to our room, which was the Seashore Suites located in the Carriage House. It was definitely a luxurious suite. We enjoyed sitting on the large wrap around porch while we had a glass of wine and delicious cranberry pumpkin bread. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Nancy and Bill did everything to make our stay a memorable one! Visit the Candlelight Inn, you won't be disappointed!!

The Candlelight Inn is the perfect location for a romantic getaway. My girlfriend and I spent a couple of nights; if we had the opportunity, we would have extended our stay.

The grounds and room are very, very well kept. The bed was clean and comfortable. There was a whirlpool tub in the bedroom and a hot tub outside. The bathroom was very clean as well, and the shower had plenty of space. (I'm 6'2", so showers are sometimes a problem for me at places like these.) The "living" room of our suite was very nicely laid out. With the fireplace going, the adjustable lighting dimmed, and a movie playing, it couldn't get much better for a nice night in.

Breakfast was served each morning in a dining room with the other guests. Everyone - Bill and Nancy especially - were very kind and open to conversation. The food was excellent and served hot when you came in.

The location is also nice. There are a bunch of shops along a "main street" kind of road; it's just a couple of blocks away from Candlelight. The town is nice and it was fairly quiet while we were there. There are plenty of options for ordering in or dining out and there's a Wawa that's not too far away.

Overall I am more than happy to give the Candlelight Inn a perfect 5/5. My stay was incredible and I'm excited to go back as soon as I can.

Bill & Nancy made our 4 night stay at the Candlelight Inn one of the best B&B experiences we have had. They are so friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning conversations over breakfast. BIll has some great stories to tell. They really were interested in our feedback on our experience with their B&B as well as other select registry inns. Breakfast was delightful every morning. Fresh fruit, homemade muffins and breads, and creative egg dishes started everyday off on the right foot. We stayed in the Seashore Suite which was a very comfortable suite with all the amenities. We really liked the extra touches like the complementary beverages in the refrigerator, the decanter of sherry, and the daily chocolates. The location of the Inn is perfect. Walking distance to the beaches and various restaurants. The Inn is spotlessly clean and that is so important to me. We liked the off-season experience. Very peaceful and relaxing. Thanks Nancy and Bill for a wonderful stay!

This was one of our first B&B experiences in New Jersey. They turned us on to one of our very favorite restaurants, Alfe's, on our first visit. We had a comfortable stay and breakfast was ready when we woke up. Everything was just as comfortable, ready and available. We did forget to call on the phone and waited a little in the foyer but we just didn't read the sign. lol They go over and above to make sure you have everything and enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: This time we stayed downstairs. Very quiet and had a little couch/sitting area. Porcelain and Brass...

My wife and I have been making the Candlelight Inn an annual vacation destination for over 14 years. During that time we have also made several getaways during the "quiet season." Throughout those years and visits we have seen many improvements to the physical appearance of the inn, but through it all there has been one constant, i.e., the hospitality, the warmth, and the friendliness of Nancy and Bill, the innkeepers. We were once asked at breakfast by another couple why we keep returning to the Candlelight Inn year after year, we told them it was Nancy and Bill who keep us coming back time and again. Our most recent trip was at the end of February 2014 for a belated Valentine's Day gift to each other, and although we didn't stay in our usual Seashore Suite accommodation, the room we stayed in, the Drawing Room, was wonderful. We can state that unequivocallly about the other rooms we have stayed in over the years as well. In December of 2013 my wife had major surgery and as part of her recuperation I surprised her with a 2-day trip over New Year's Eve and Day. It was just what the doctor ordered! She was able to relax and not worry about her surgery or work. And I almost forgot - the breakfasts are great too!

Room Tip: For long stays consider one of the large suites in the Carriage House, otherwise rooms have either a...

The inn and the inn keepers were lovely! The rooms were comfortable, homey and very well kept! Also, they really went out of their way to make sure our needs we're met! I am vegan and they worked with the local health food store to come up with a delicious breakfast (vegan eggnog french toast). It was amazing and much appreciated! Would definitely recommend this place when visiting wildwood or attending an event at the convention center (which is very close). Great experience!
