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.

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!!

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!!

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.


One Word - EXCEPTIONAL!

5 on May 20, 2016

This was a return visit for us - there's nothing not to like. The friendly, professional hospitality, the elegant multi-course delicious breakfast, the attention to detail 'period' accommodations; and it's all a short few blocks from the beautiful ocean beach of the "Jersey" shore! Wanda and Michael are attentive and most friendly. You'll love it.


A Great B&B Choice

Highly attentive host & hostess. We stayed in a 1st floor room, which means ground floor below the main level - if I had known this, I might have chosen another room, but I am glad I did not. The 2 room shared sitting room for the ground floor is a nice touch. Hot tub is very nice. Location is quiet. Amenities are 1st class.


Great Weekend

Great place, friendly and easy going Inn Keepers, very attentive to the guest, very involved with all the guest during Breakfast


Inn Keepers made this a relaxing weekend

5 on April 04, 2016

The Candlelight Inn is simply fabulous with its doating inn keepers, warm and cozy décor, convenient location and tasty breakfast. This inn was just perfect for my wife and me to get away and relax from it all. We prefer inns to hotels because we enjoy taking with the inn keepers. I have to say that Michael and Wanda were very gracious and just bent over backwards making our stay very pleasurable. Michael is a character and after talking with him for about a half an hour you feel as though you have become best friends. One couple from Pennsylvania said this was their third time within the last year. The décor was very cute as they have lots of nooks. The amenities included everything you would need if you stayed for a week. They had lots of common space where you could just sit and read, watch TV or movies with other guests or just hang and play some games. There is a hot tub but we elected to enjoy the large covered porch. The location was much better than we expected. It was a short few walking blocks from the north end of the boardwalk. My wife and I enjoy walking the beach any time of the year but having the boardwalk there in inclement weather would have been plus. Decent restaurants and a sports bar were also within walking distance making our stay carless as we walked everywhere. At night it was quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was amazing. They served unique dishes every morning that were tasty. I heard from one of the couples that during their Murder Mystery Games Michael served a fantastic dinner, which is enough of an incentive to return. Thanks for a relaxing weekend Michael and Wanda. We’ll see you again this summer. Bill & Holly
