We stayed at the Candlelite Inn as a result of a Groupon. It is about a four to four and one half drive from our home in Ohio. We spent Saturday night in Holland Michigan which has a great downtown shopping area near Hope College. The drive up to Ludington on Sunday was pleasant with a stop at the beach... More

We absolutely loved our stay here! We had the Delux Romantic Retreat Suite which was priced very reasonably. It had it's own private entrance and temperature controls. Large 2 person jacuzzi style tub which I loved! Melanie and Gary are fantastic hosts and cooks! If you leave this place hungry there is something wrong with you as Melanie caters to... More

My husband and I have never stayed at a B&B before. We decided to try Candlelite Inn B&B because of some reviews we had read. We were welcomed warmly by Melanie and was shown around the house. Very quaint home, very big breakfasts! Her food is amazing! We stayed in the Ludington room which you can access from outside. It... More

Currently staying here for three nights and very happy with the experience. Ours is the Ludington Room, one of two pet-friendly rooms/suites. A bit small, but it has a private entrance that works well with pets. Hosts Melanie and Gary are great cooks, very cordial and accommodating. Would love to return.

We booked a 2 night romantic getaway here for our anniversary. It was perfect; lovely room, warm welcome from our hosts, Melanie and Gary. She is the gourmet chef, and he is the comic relief. The old fashioned charm is everywhere around you, as are desserts, candies, snacks, and beverages. No one walks away from this B & B hungry,... More

This was a gift certificate from our children at Christmas. It was great! We weren't sure about a b&b, but it was wonderful! We had the suite with jacuzzi.

Our room was comfortable and air conditioned. There is a private bathroom open to the rest of the room. The innkeepers had fresh baked goods in the dining room all... More

Candlelite was a delightful surprise... Melanie and her sweetie pie Gary welcome you in their cozy home as friends with decadent desserts, promptly fill you in about the lovely adventures you can have in Ludington, and tour you around, so you don't miss anything lovely. Their hospitality is warm and sweet, like the color palette that surrounds you in the... More
