The day of our dreams
I can’t say enough about Candlewood Inn. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous, the staff was incredible throughout the process, and the food was incredible. We’ve received so much feedback from our guests about how amazed they were with the views, the food and the ambiance of the venue. Christian (event planner) and his staff are extremely accommodating, helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you for such an amazing day!!Sent on 09/01/2019

Beautiful venue, great service
We searched extensively for a reception venue that would be not only beautiful, but top notch quality and service. We found all of that and more at the Candlewood Inn. Christian and the bridal attendants and assistants were amazing. They ensured we were fed throughout photos and the cocktail hour, refreshed with drinks and water, and even carried a small table around with us with food and drinks during the family photos. They were amazing with helping to carry my train, bustle the dress with my sisters and positioning the train for numerous photos. We felt 100% taken care of throughout the reception, as they were there to check on us and make sure we were fed and happy with our dinner.Sent on 08/11/2019
The food was absolutely delicious. Our guests raved about the new england seafood station and shrimp cocktail station, the hors d'oeuvres, and main entrees. The cake was SO good, and beautifully presented, and the cookie/pastry trays were a perfect touch for after dinner!
We lucked out with a great weather, and everyone was loving the venue setting on the lake. This place is beautiful, and will be the perfect spot for anyone looking for a picturesque wedding. Thank you to Christian and all the staff! We strongly recommend the Candlewood Inn!!
We've performed many of weddings here over the years. Food and service here is of the highest quality, one of our favorite venues for sure! 3 thumbs up!
We've had the pleasure of performing at The Candlewood Inn for dozens of weddings over the past few years and are continually impressed with the level of service and professionalism this venue exudes! This place is the farthest thing from a wedding factory and I think many couples will enjoy its originality and prime waterfront location. If you're looking for a venue that is unique yet conducive to a fun wedding reception, I would seriously consider The Candlewood Inn! You won't be disappointed.
This venue is one of the most amazing places to host any kind of event. The staff is amazing and the food is mouthwatering. The atmosphere is second to none. You must make this venue your top priority to see. You will not be dissapointed. Jim Nuzzo Dance To The Music Entertainment
