About

The Candlelight Inn is a beautifully restored Queen Anne, Victorian Bed & Breakfast that concentrates on making its guests feel relaxed. Your innkeepers, Wanda and Michael O'Brien live on premises. A private home for 80 years, today the Candlelight Inn can be enjoyed by couples seeking a romantic getaway. All guests rooms in the main house have private baths, two with a whirlpool tub, and all have romantic electric fireplaces. Both rooms in the Carriage House have their own gas fireplaces and private, double whirlpool tubs. Most rooms have ceiling fans, and all are air-conditioned. Central Avenue offers the perfect setting for the Candlelight Inn. With its wide borders and beautifully landscaped islands, it lends itself well to our quiet residential section of North Wildwood. Our spacious porch provides just the right spot for you to take in the view and be surrounded by cool seashore breezes. Come and relax in our outdoor hot tub anytime of the year. In addition to the beach and boardwalk that are three blocks from the inn, there are plenty of other attractions and restaurants within walking distance and Cape May is a fifteen minute drive away. Time spent at the Candlelight Inn is always remembered as special. It is your home away from home at the Jersey Shore. We have a Tesla and a universal charging station for electric vehicles.

54 Years With Mary

4.8 on August 12, 2016

I booked our two night stay for our 54th anniversary and I was not disappointed. Wanda and Mike were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were wonderful and the other guests were very enjoyable to talk with. The room was very nice and the town was as clean as a pin. We are no longer beach people, but there are other things to do like sightseeing or whale watching and also shopping. There are also many good places to eat. Loved it.


Visit the Candlelight Inn

We were able to secure a last minute reservation. We had passed the Candlelight Inn often but this was our first visit. It was wonderful in every sense! Within 12 hours we decided that we would visit annually, and after learning it's open throughout the year, we plan to enjoy winter at the Jersey Shore at the Candlelight Inn. Don't miss it.


Convenient and delicious

This was our 10th stay at the Candlelight Inn. When you find a place that has everything you want, you keep returning. The convenient location, off street parking, delicious breakfasts, friendly hosts and just some of the reasons we stay at the Inn. We'll be back!


At home Feeling

4.6 on July 29, 2016

Everything was great from the moment I woke up to the moment i went to sleep. The one thing that i would change is the shower stall,to confine. Also the shower head was to high up. Loved the Cookie o'clock-it was a nice touch in the latter part of the day, always a surprise, a delicious one at that.


Great stay, rooms, and hosts; definite coming back

5 on July 21, 2016

Was our mini honeymoon and Mike and Wanda were great. Rooms were clean and very cute; rest of the house and outside jacuzzi also. Breakfast very tasty and they had great suggestions for restaurants and attractions. Really nice wine and cookies in the afternoon, mini-fridges with sodas near all the rooms. Very close to the beach and neighborhood is great; pretty and clean. Can't even think of any complaints or improvements. Will definitely be coming back.


1st Timer

5 on July 01, 2016

This was the 1st B&B my wife and I had ever visited. We were nervous at first, and not sure what to expect. As soon as we got there, we were greeted by the innkeeper and we felt at home very quickly. The Brides Room was beautiful and we had great food each morning for breakfast. At night we enjoyed relaxing on the large wrap around porch. It's was home away from home.


Excellent service and accommodations

5 on June 21, 2016

Well maintained and decorated establishment with all the extra accommodations you would want while traveling or on vacation. Friendly, welcoming atmosphere and the service was excellent. If you love to eat this is the place to stay, we were offered snacks, beverages, bedtime sweets and a gourmet breakfast.


Fantastic last minute find!!

4.8 on June 20, 2016

walking distance to the beach and boardwalk but far enough away to be a quiet joy. Fantastic breakfast with a fruit course, bread course and entree. Cookie time is wonderful. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. Only minuses are that the building has many stairs and the showers are small. Everything is clean and well tended and the food is fantastic. They even provide Sherry and chocolates before you retire. We will be back.


Love this place!! And the people are amazing!!

I've never stayed at a better place than this!! 110% amazing hands down


Candlelight Inn

My husband and I spent our 16 year wedding anniversary at this beautiful inn over this past weekend. It was not our first stay, it was our second within the past year. We spent last years anniversary celebration here as well. I typically like to try new places every year, beings we only take one weekend away by ourselves a year without our children, however we were very impressed with our first experience that we decided to come back and and I'm so glad we did. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing getaway in walking distance to board walk activities and the beach then this B&B is worth looking into. It is close driving distance to Cape May without the hassle of difficult parking. You will receive a warm welcome from both Michael and Wanda upon your arrival. They are very down to earth and take pride in their ownership of this inn. There is also a hot tub on the premisses. This time we stayed in the Quarter Deck in the carriage house and absolutely loved our room. From the delicious breakfasts to the afternoon baked goodies that Wanda prepares you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back.
