    Great venue, even better people

    Although our journey with Candlewood inn has just begun, i can not express the happiness ive experienced working with them thus far. The general manager, Conor is so warm and welcoming. the minute we met her we were welcomed with open arms. the facility is beautiful and the price makes everything so worth it.

    Better than my dream wedding

    Our wedding could not have been more perfect. Let me start off by saying I have always wanted to get married at the Candlewood Inn since I was younger! My parents and I would pass by on the boat and I would point and say I am going to get married there one day! Sure enough we did and it absolutely exceeded my expectations!!! Being a COVID Bride and planning our 2020 wedding it was pretty heartbreaking when we heard we had to reschedule. The entire staff at the Candlewood Inn, especially Christian and Conor, made the transition and moving our date into 2021 much Less stressful. I know I must’ve called them 1 million times with a ton of questions but they always got back to me within the same day! when our wedding day finally came it couldn’t have been more perfect! Besides having a stunning location their food was absolutely incredible. We have had almost ever single guest come up to us and tell us it was THE BEST food they have ever had at a wedding. The day of staff and bridal attendants were so helpful and I couldn’t be more grateful for the reminders to make sure I ate my food (lol). I wish they day never had to end. Thank goodness for photos!!! Thank you Candlewood Inn for the most perfect wedding a bride could have asked for!

    No competition, the best venue in Connecticut!

    From the first time we saw it, the Candlewood Inn was the perfect venue for me and my wife. Everyone that worked there was incredibly informative, kind, understanding, communicative, and helpful, especially throughout the process of trying to plan a wedding during the pandemic. They consistently updated us on any potential changes or concerns (especially regarding the pandemic), answered all of our questions, accommodated special requests, and went above and beyond when providing for us both before and during our special day. Everyone that works there is incredibly kind, genuine, and supportive throughout the entire process (Thank you so much to Conor, Christian, and Kirsten!). When it rained on our wedding day, they moved everything inside seamlessly and made it look beautiful. The staff made sure that we had everything we needed and kept everything going smoothly throughout the entire day. They created the perfect atmosphere for our intimate wedding day without any problems, and they communicated with us throughout the entire process. And don’t get me started on the amazing food! Their menu options are outstanding and the food on our wedding day was delicious. A month later, friends of mine still ranted to me about wishing they could have the food again. When the event was over, they helped us move things out and shared such kind words and wishes to us as we began our marriage. I cannot speak highly enough of this venue and the people who dedicate themselves to making wedding days perfect and brides and grooms feel special.
