Cabins and Candlelight was an absolutely idyllic place to spend our anniversary weekend. Each of the two cabins is tucked back into its own secluded grove within an open meadow area, and the cabins (we stayed in the one with the green roof) have everything you could ask for to make a perfect getaway. From the jacuzzi tub, to the back screened porch, gas grill, front porch, and even a selection of breakfast items, we loved this place. And to top it off, no wifi or cell service, so we unplugged completely, which was just what we needed. Highly recommended!
We have stayed at Cabins and Candlelight twice in the past few years. Typically, my wife and I stay at Select B & B's. The experience at Cabins and Candlelight is unique, in that breakfast isn't cooked for you. You have everything you need to cooked breakfast yourself... To you taste, at your time. Not only breakfast, but other meals as well... All of the "extras are there"... Bring your meats and special ingredients, and literally everything else is there. Very clean and comfortable, close enough to get to places within a short drive, but far enough out there to make cell phone service limited. Promotes creconnection time, which for us is valued. We will definitely return... We recommend this as a stop to all!
My husband and I spent our first (if many more to come) get away in this beautiful cabin in the woods. This wasn't your typical cabin though as it was meticulously manicured both inside & out. From the moment we drove up to this secluded piece of paradise we were in awe. The owners thought of everything from music playing when you walk in, campfire ready for the evening, to books, CDs for music, old classic DVDs (think Casablanca, singing in the rain, etc). Porched patio in the back to watch and hear wild life, hummingbirds, squirrels, raccoons (we didn't see raccoons though) hundreds if lightening bugs and a sky so dark you could see many stars. In the front glider you could hear the cows mooing from far far away on the other side of the woods (thankfully no smells though). There were trails to the river and throughout the woods. Stocked kitchen full of little surprises and candles throughout. A little piece of heaven for sure. We will miss this place and will return again. I have very high standards for cleanliness and this exceeded even my standards. We will treasure the memories we've shared here for a lifetime. Thank you Chuck and Rhonda for providing such a lovely retreat. Sincerely, Chuck & Sue (Michigan)
This was our third trip to Cabins & Candlelight and we plan to continue this tradition. We can't ask for a better getaway! The privacy and limited internet signal is absolutely heavenly. To find a getaway where you can have this type of isolation, but still be close enough to to other towns for excursions, is rare and very valuable in our eyes. We appreciate having a wonderful place like Cabins & Candlelight to hide away for a few days.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to go to for a quiet, peaceful & romantic getaway! All you have to do is pack your bag of clothes & THATS IT! Everything else was included.. anything you could possibly think of, was there. Completely fell in love with this place & can't wait to plan another trip there very soon! I highly recommend this to anyone! Especially if you're looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway that's unlike any other!!!
This must be the cleanest and most homey place we have stayed. If you love solitude, nature and pure relaxation, this is a must. Everything about it is wonderful, even the option to have them provide a top notch supper for you to prepare in your quiet little cabin when & how you want it. We have gone 3 times and plan to go back.
This is the perfect place to spend some quality time with the one you love. Peaceful and comfy atmosphere where you can just relax. My husband and I have visited Cabins & Candlelight twice now, and we will definatly be back.
What a way to spend a night away. We saw 5 deer and multiple Cardinal sightings within the first half hour of our time. The cabin was beautiful and the candles added great ambiance to our time there. The options for breakfast were abundant and we enjoyed getting to fix it at our leisure. We would definitely return.
My girlfriend booked a cabin with Cabins & Candlelight Jan 2nd-5th 2016 as a total surprise to me. After arrival, and inspection of the cabin, it's amenities and the grounds...the seduction was complete. We were totally impressed with how clean it was, and how cozy and comfortable it felt. Indianapolis residents, if you want a getaway that is only 45 minutes from Indy, yet literally in the middle of nowhere...this place is for you. Cell phone reception (Verizon) was basically nonexistent, and we didn't care. The grounds are very well kept, and I can only imagine how beautiful it would've been with a fresh snowfall, or how nice it is in the summer months. It was sunny a couple of days we were there, and a bird feeder in the back gave us plenty to observe as several species of bird sampled it's offerings. If you're a star gazer, the pitch black nights give you quite the display...a telescope would be worth bringing. Shades State Park, and Turkey Run State Park are about 45 minutes away for hiking, or to enjoy nature. But...if you prefer, you can simply enjoy the quiet ambiance the cabin and grounds provide. There is a television, a dvd player, and stereo. They offer a selection of movies (we brought some) as well as board games, puzzles etc. There is also a land line telephone in the room, so the lack of cell service isn't an issue. I could go on and on, but as you might be able to discern, myself and Sherri were truly happy, and satisfied with the cabin, and the total experience. I trumped up a reason to meet Rhonda who was prepping the adjoining cabin, and she was very nice and welcoming. If you're looking for a quiet getaway...Cabins & Candlelight is definitely worth considering. Kevin Cheatham & Sherri Bucher :-)
From the second we walked in, we were thrilled with the cabin. The charming, rustic-yet-modern decor, the music playing as we walked in...we felt at home instantly! The cabin was spotless. Having a full kitchen was a definite plus! We are already planning our return visit.
I found this little gem about 4 years ago and keep coming back. two little cabins nestled away in the local middle of nowhere makes for a great 1 or 2 night escape from reality. Perfect modern cabins, wonderful property to roam. Soft warm beds. The perfect getaway from life for a while.
I booked a weeknight surprise getaway to the cabin for my wife and I. Due to our own busy schedules, there was some back and forth with Chuck and Rhonda but to my pleasure they communicated well and promptly and we were finally able to get a night that worked for all. All I told my wife was that our place was close to home, which immediately perked the interest of all her coworkers. One great thing about Cabins and Candlelight is that it is so close to home that we could go from work to the cabin and then go back to work the next morning. Talk about a great convenience! After a quick 35 minute drive, we arrived to find our cabin well lit and ready to go, including it was a toasty 72 degrees inside. A flip of the switch and our fireplace was on and the mood was perfect. My wife was in love and I hadn't even brought in the luggage. We enjoyed the entire evening in the cabin including making our steak dinner, a soak in the whirlpool tub with candles illumincating the cabin, and some romantic movies and wine. After sleeping in the Sleep Number bed, we got to wake up and make up and some breakfast without the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. What a great time to just relax each other. The cabin was so well stocked, we even took home stuff we brought just in case the cabin didn't have it. To be honest, the worst part of the stay was that we had to leave. I know we will be back at least once a year for a long time. Thanks Chuck & Rhonda for such a great place to getaway and I am not sure we will find many other places that compare.
The secluded cabin was actually very easy to find. The outside appearance was very nice, I loved the green roof. And when we actually walked in, i gasped. It was so neat and clean, and cool, and spacious, and beautiful. We loved the high ceilings, and the openess of the cabin. They table for 2 was set beautifully, soft music was playing in the background, and the cabin had a wonderful fragrance. We enjoyed the atmosphere so much. I took my husband there as a surprise for his 40th bday, and he said it was the best surprise of his life.
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful time at Cabins and Candlelight!! The cabin was immaculate and beautifully decorated. The atmosphere was perfect for a romantic getaway. We had beautiful music playing in the background on our arrival. The kitchen was stocked with everything from milk and OJ to eggs and cinnamon rolls. The fireplace was gorgeous and the view of the woods created a peaceful sanctuary for us. We will definitely becoming back!!
