  • There is no other word to describe the Candlewood Inn other than absolutely AMAZING. Ill start off by saying this was the first and only venue we ever looked at. We drove up to it and it's just so beautiful. The location of being right on the water is breath taking along with the landscaping is just stunning. We fell in love with it and booked it that day. Besides that fact of how beautiful the Candlewood Inn is the staff is most definitely the best part of it all. Christian was our coordinator and he did a superb job is making sure everything was perfect for our special day. The whole team was so amazing. The wait staff made sure we always had a fresh cold drink in our hands from the time we pulled up to the Candlewood Inn all the way to the end of the night. Tony and Phil taught us how to "Wobble" on the dance floor- now that is a staff you could only wish to have! The food was so declious, our guests are STILL talking about it now. It's been almost a month now since our wedding... Read more

  • The Candlewood Inn was amazing from start to finish. Christian and his staff were extremely attentive and very kind. Marlene was very nice and answered every question we had with a smile (and there were many). She seemed like she really likes her job. We did not have to worry about anything the day of. We were told to just relax have fun and they would take care of the rest... and they did. The food was delicious. The ceremony was still beautiful despite having to move inside last minute due to the weather. Our guests are still commenting on how beautiful the venue was. Overall we had an amazing time and if we had to do it all over again we would not change a thing.

  • Matthew & I had a winter wedding at The Candlewood Inn. We had SUCH an incredible experience planning our event there. Christian & Marlene were extremely helpful & made the process very easy for us. They are organized and had great suggestions. I never doubted that our event was in great hands. Our guests raved about the location, the food, the service and overall atmosphere of our event. The food was delicious, the menu options were awesome (and plentiful) and they created the exact look we were trying to achieve for our ceremony & reception. I didnt have to think or worry at all in the process; they had everything under control!! I absolutely recommend The Candlewood Inn and we plan to use this venue for a future event!!

  • We got married the Friday post Hurricane Sandy and we could not have been happier than we were with the level of service at the Candlewood Inn. The entire staff was fantastic and Christian did a great job keeping the flow perfect for our wedding day. On the final hour we decided to move the wedding from outside to inside and it definitely exceeded my expectations. The food was great, drinks were plentiful and the grounds were well kept! Thanks again to the Candlewood Inn staff! Jeff & McKenzie

  • The Candlewood Inn provided me with my dream come true wedding!!! Thanks to Christian and his team, I can honestly say that my wedding was perfect. From the very first day that I met Christian he was extremely friendly and helpful. I constantly had questions for him throughout the planning process and he ALWAYS responded immediately and made me feel very calm. I trusted Christian and his team with a lot especially when it came to the set-up on my wedding day and they did not make one mistake!! Everything was just perfect and beautiful. On my wedding day, I felt like a princess and had that one-on-one attention that is so important for all brides to have on their special day. I am from NY and I did not want to get married at the typical NY venue, so I discovered The Candlewood Inn and immediately fell in love with its beauty. Well, not only did I fall in love with its' beauty, but I also feel in love with the way that the entire staff made me feel from day one of planning all the way ... Read more

  • We could not have asked for more on our wedding day from the Candlewood Inn. During the year and half before our wedding day, Christian and his staff were extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. They were very organized and helped to keep us stress free. On the day of our wedding the staff was so attentive and ensured that our guests and us (the bride and groom) were having a good time. We even had two lovely staff members assigned to us all day. They brought food from our cocktail hour to the bridal suite to ensure that we were able to enjoy our cocktail hour. All of the food was excellent, all our guests were commenting on it. The cake that their in house bakery made looked amazing and was delicious. And one cannot forget the beautiful view of Candlewood Lake. Overall we could not have been happier with The Candlewood Inn and their wonderful team.

  • I could not have been happier choosing The Candlewood Inn as our reception venue. When looking at reception venues earlier in the planning stages, I had selected three in CT, and set up site visits at each- all booked for a weekend in January. The Candlewood Inn was the first place I saw, and I immediately cancelled my other site visits and booked! Their reception hall is immaculate, and is backdropped by a breathtaking view of Candlewood Lake. It was a wonderful spot for guests to relax and stroll the grounds with cocktails and hors d'oeurves, and our pictures set against the lake were amazing. The meal choices and appetizers were outstanding, the bar was well stocked and well attended, and the waitstaff was extremely attentive to not only our guests but to myself, my husband and our bridal party. They brought us cocktails and ice water, stocked us with our own hors d'oeurves, and even got my sister an icepack after she was stung by a bee during our photo shoot! Months later I am stil...

  • Candlewood was absolutely amazing. Our wedding day was magic thanks to Christian and his staff. The venue is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the service is incredible. I just cannot say enough about this place. They were so helpful and so flexible leading up to the event, and on the day of the wedding, they were more than attentive. Someone stepped on my dress and my bustle ripped, and before I knew it, someone was at my table to fix it. Candlewood exceeded all of my expectations, and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a gorgeous reception site, great food, and friendly, professional staff.

  • I fell in love with the candlewood inn when I first saw it! It is a gorgeous venue. Leading up to the wedding you deal with a couple different people. Christian was supposed to be the matre'd for our wedding but had the weekend off and left his two managers in charge. These two managers were lacking organization and did not study up on all the information that was left to them. The ceremony got rained out and they kept trying to postpone it till the rain stopped, cutting our time down for the reception (horrible decision making on their part). I rarely saw the lady manager, melissa, after the ceremony. The other manager, mario, came to me during our picture session asking when we were expecting the cake and didnt like when my husband told him he had spoke to the cake person and the candlewood people told her what time to come, he had no idea..... the two attendants that were assigned to the bridal party dissapeared after the dinner was served and I had to get my own drinks from the...
