  • Candlewood Inn is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Connecticut. The outdoor ceremony area with gazebo looking out on the lake was absolutely perfect. There was a chance of rain on our wedding day, and the indoor option with the same view would have been perfect had we needed to hold the ceremony indoors. Christian, our coordinator, and the staff at The Candlewood Inn made everything from planning to the actual day run smoothly. Everything was set up perfectly. They took the time to understand how exactly we wanted things to be displayed and double checked with us when they weren’t sure. The attendants did a great job of making sure our every need was taken care of the day of the wedding. We were kept aware of when events were going to take place, and they ensured that we had plenty to eat and drink throughout the day. The food was excellent, from hors d’oeuvres to entrees to the cake were perfectly prepared and presented. The day ended with the staff packing up a... Read more

  • I can not say enough about The Candlewood Inn! The second my husband and I drove into the parking lot to view it we knew it was the place for our special day! The view of the lake alone is breathtaking! Filomena and Christian were great responding to my emails before the big day. Marlene did and amazing job reigning our big group in for the rehearsal and made sure all of our last minute questions were answered. The day of Mario was there to help with anything and everything! He came out of no where at times to do simple things you wouldn't normally think about, for instance when I came out and was about to start my first dance I thought what do I do with my bouquet and then I looked up and he was there to grab it from me! We had two attendants Emily and Christina these two were absolutely amazing!!! While taking pictures the two of them made sure my bridal party was fed and had drinks as well as me and my husband. So I wouldn't get anything on my dress they actually fed me at one poin... Read more

  • Our wedding was on 9.16.16 and our guests are STILL raving about how much they loved everything about The Candlewood Inn! From start to finish the staff truly went above and beyond to make it the best day ever. Our friends and family all complimented how welcomed they felt and how exceptional the service was. The attendants throughout the night were so pleasant and I felt that they were truly happy to be there, celebrating with us:) Five stars is not enough to rate the quality of service!!! Leading up to and even the day of, the entire staff worked with us to understand our vision, and they offered helpful suggestions at every turn. They were incredibly accommodating and reassuring through every decision regarding our special day. The value of this venue is exceptional, everything was very reasonably priced and there were many options for add on's in addition to the meal provided. We will never be able to say enough good things about our wedding ceremony & reception thanks to The Candl... Read more

  • I cannot even put into words how amazing The Candlewood Inn and ALL the staff were. They followed through with every little detail we requested from serving beer in pint glasses rather than the bottle, to choosing a cake shape and design from two different cakes they offered. Everything was absolutely perfect. We were treated like royalty. I never had to go looking for a bridal attendant, they were always there to hold my bouquet, lipstick, bring a drink, etc. Special thank you to Christian for all his hard work. I cannot imagine having a better venue. The Candlewood in was beyond perfect. Thank you for everything! -Jodi and Barry

  • We knew before we got engaged that Candlewood Inn was where we wanted to be married just because of the absolutely gorgeous setting. We could not be happier with our decision. Everything was absolutely perfect! Christian was so great to work with leading up to the wedding and the day of. He made sure that everything ran smoothly and oversaw the entire day. Sabrina and Emily were dedicated to the bridal party, they were amazing! They were always there with a new drink when ours were getting low, they made sure we got to enjoy food from the cocktail hour, they made sure that we ate our dinners, they even helped my maid of honor bustle my dress!!!!!! Christian and his staff really made sure that we had the best time at our wedding. We knew that we were in good hands and we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. The food was amazing, we are still getting compliments from our guests. The food arrived to each person hot, which at weddings doesn't usually happen, the filet was cook... Read more

  • There are not enough words to describe how outstanding my wedding reception at the Candlewood Inn was! Christian and his team were absolutely incredible from the moment we first toured the property through to the moment we left after our wedding was over. The venue speaks for itself with the gorgeous lake views and stunning grounds. The inside was SHINING the day of my wedding, with a fresh coat of paint and newly washed chandeliers! Christian even took the time to help me decide on the perfect color for the uplighting that we added in, never losing patience with me and acting as if he had all the time in the world to help indecisive me decide on a color. As soon as the limo bus pulled up with my husband and our bridal party we were treated like royalty. Our bridal attendants took excellent care of us, always making sure we had water, beverages, and food nearby. When my bustle on my dress broke a few times throughout the night, they were always prepared to help fix it. The foo... Read more

  • We had our son's wedding on July 2,2016 at the candlewood Inn and it was magical. The entire staff from the first day of planning till the day of the reception, made us feel that our wedding was going to be spectacular..... And it was. The venue speaks for its self on beautiful Candlewood lake. We have a summer home on the lake and dreamed of having our sons wedding their with all the beauty the lake has to offer. Having amazing weather could only add to the special feeling that the venue offers. The food was 4 star, from the cocktail hour straight through to the Viennese hour that was top class. We would recommend this venue to any family looking to have an elegant wedding reception that truly became worry free for us. Many venues will promise you everything and when the special day arrives and you are disappointed, you can't redo the day. you have one chance to get it right and we are so happy we chose the Candlewood inn.

  • Our wedding at the Candlewood Inn was everything we could have hoped for and more. From booking to the big day everything went smoothly and Christian was great to work with. We arrived early for pictures and were welcomed with open arms. The bridal attendants went right to work making sure everyone was comfortable and hydrated, they blew us away. One of the attendants even found me on the bus as we were leaving with food in to go boxes for us to eat later! All the food was great, filet was our favorite! Our guests are still raving about the coffee cordial bar that they offer with dessert, highly recommended!

  • We got married at the candlewood inn on April 9, 2016. From booking with filomena to choosing the cake and food choices with Christian everything went smoothly. The day of our ceremony was perfect, the staff were so helpful and guests even complimented how everyone went above and beyond. The food and cake were delicious and the venue is gorgeous. We had our ceremony inside due to colder weather and it was still beautiful. We couldn't have asked for anything better from the candlewood and the staff.

  • Candlewood Inn was absolutely AMAZING! The weather was perfect, the staff was professional and the grounds are gorgeous! Anyone would be lucky to get married here! Christian is amazing, he is cool, calm and collected throughout the entire event. I don't think anything could rattle his cage. A truly great venue to get married at!

  • We got married in July at Candlewood Inn and loved the whole experience! Christian and his crew made everything so easy and stress-free! My husband and I both had attendants the whole night checking in with us, grabbing us drinks and even helping my MOH bustle my dress! My biggest fear was the food since we were not allowed to do a tasting before, but the food was great! We added the gelato station and a pretzel exit station which our guests LOVED! The venue was beautiful and we got great pictures on the lawn as the sun was setting. We couldn’t have asked for a better venue and staff!

  • If you are looking to have the most perfect wedding experience that won't break the bank, then DEFINITELY book your wedding at the Candlewood. The staff is beyond professional. They were very attentive and very caring. Our wedding went off without a hitch and it was all due to Christian, Mario and their staff. When we booked our wedding, I was a little nervous about the food, especially since there was no tasting, but everything was delicious and perfect. We ordered the filet mignon and the chicken piccata are our entrees and they were out of this world. The steaks were made to order and we like butter! And the wedding cake was included in the package!!!! The venue is also beautiful! What more can you ask for??? The space, the staff and the delicious food made everything perfect!

  • The candlewood inn did an amazing job for our wedding this weekend. Christian and his staff were absolutely wonderful and were so accommodating. It rained on our day but they made it just as special than if it were outside. Everything was more than I could have asked for.

  • You pay for the view/scenery at Candlewood, not the service. We recently had an afternoon wedding and the biggest turn off was how rushed we we're and how the matre d and wedding coordinator were so rude to our guests. An afternoon wedding ends at 5 pm however our guests were being pushed out by taking meals that were not yet finished at 3:45 pm and then being told to leave at 4 pm. The bridal attendants were the best and they were the only saving grace to this place. We paid for guests that didn't show up (which can happen) however they didn't give us their meal to take home. Our grandmother who has early onset of Alzheimer's asked for more food because she was hungry and they refused to serve her because the staff were already eating the leftovers to our food (we found this out later on). It's been a hassle since the beginning working with filomena who was rude from the onset to Christian, but the location/view mattered more to us, so please be careful and know what to expect!

  • Visit the Candlewood Inn and you will NOT be disappointed. From our first meeting for a tour through all of our encounters leading up to and included our wedding day, the staff at Candlewood were exceptional. They were friendly, professional, supportive and knowledgeable. Christian is beyond amazing. He extensive knowledge of the in's and out's of wedding planning and is right there beside you throughout the entire process. He ensured that everything ran seamlessly so that I could just focus on marrying my love and celebrating with my family and friends. The only minor flaw that I found throughout the entire experience was that we were not allowed to try the food or see a wedding as it was actually occurring. This being said the food was FANTASTIC. Our guests could not stop raving about it!! Also, on our day, the staff actually gave a tour to a couple and led them through our wedding. While I did not mind since this is common practice. I can't help but wonder why I was not afforded the... Read more
