A Beautiful Romantic alternative to Cape May Bed and Breakfasts

5 on February 08, 2015

The Candlelight Inn is a charming and romantic find on the Jersey Cape located in North Wildwood just minutes away from Cape May. My wife Sally and I found it a wonderful alternative to staying in Cape May. We love staying in the B&Bs in Cape May but they have become a bit inaccessible due to the high traffic and serious lack of parking availability. The Candlelight Inn has its own parking lot, which would be such a plus on a busy weekend on the Jersey Shore. The house is well over 100 years old with all the charm of a beautiful Victorian home with one of the finest wrap around porches I have ever seen. I can imagine sitting on the porch in one of their rocking chairs or laying in the hammock taking in the gentile sea breezes. The house is adorned with antique furniture that brings you back in time to a relaxing time and place. We came for a weekend getaway in a snowy February. The gas-fired fireplaces looked like the real thing and provided a dreamy backdrop to catching up on teaching my online courses. I teach totally online for a number of colleges and universities so a high speed Internet connection is a must for wherever we go. There are so many special touches that will build special memories. Each room has a fireplace and a bottle of sherry. I loved the hot tub in our bathroom! What a romantic treat complete with bathrobes and plush towels. We stayed in the Drawing room on the ground floor, which opens to a sitting area with the working fireplace.

A beautiful inn with the nicest and most-accommodating innkeepers. Wanda and Michael were great and could not have made us feel more comfortable. We've already booked our next stay.


We love this place!

My wife and I haven going to the Candlelight Inn in North Wildwood, NJ for nine years now. We always stay at the Candlelight Inn and were worried about the new owners, but Wanda and Michael were very pleasant and accommodating. We will definitely be back.


Thanksgiving get away.

Decided to try something different for Thanksgiving. Wife and I came down to Candlelight Inn. Beautiful private stay, Innkeepers warm and welcoming. We are private people and were made to feel very comfortable and our stay was a pleasure. The food was very good.Just what we needed for a quiet get away. Mike and Wanda were wonderful.


Stil the best place to stay in North Wildwood

5 on November 07, 2014

I have stayed at the Candlelight Inn B&B many times before, always in the summer. This was my first off-season visit and the first with the new owners. Michael and Wanda bring new and delicious recipes to the breakfast table, and their enthusiasm to please their guests is boundless. For now they are keeping to the former owners' customs and habits which were efficient and worked very well. This is still the best place to stay in North Wildwood!


I'll be back!

My husband and I enjoyed everything about our stay at the Candlelight Inn from the moment we arrived until we had to leave. The Inn Keepers were amazing. Very friendly and really knew how to make you feel welcome. The food was exceptional, and they even went the extra mile to cater to my very picky ways. Afternoon cookies and wine was a very warm touch. And the location near the beach and Boardwalk was perfect even though it was off season. The stay was much more than We anticipated and we will be back!


Delightful B and B

Michael and Wanda were wonderful hosts and the room was charming. We would have stayed longer if we could. Breakfast was delicious.

Have you ever gone somewhere and met someone and you immediately felt of like mind and very at home in this new situation? This is what we felt when we walked through the front door of the Candlelight Inn. It doesn’t happen often but when it does it is amazing. We came to North Wildwood to go to a car show/race on the beach. We first met our innkeepers Michael and Wanda, who just took ownership of this beautiful inn in July. They were adorable and so excited to be on their new adventure as Innkeepers. The other guests all seemed to be going to the car show/race and if they weren’t, they decided to go just because everyone else seemed so excited about it. Breakfast was a blast with good food and GREAT baked goods and everyone talking at once as if we had known each other for years. This is a special place and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.


"Second time - Great stay - wonderful friendly NEW innkeepers!!"

5 on October 07, 2014

They saying "second time is a charm" is perfectly fitting for this stay. We just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay (September 29-Oct 3), our son and his wife and my sister and her husband, we all had a great time. We booked this stay back in May and the inn was sold in July, and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect but it was absolutely wonderful. The new Innkeepers Wanda and Michael are super and the place even more wonderful the second time around. We will be looking forward to another stay and already planning to stay in the Carriage house the next time. The Candlelight Inn is a beautiful Victorian home, there is a book in each room that provides you with the history and some features to look for thought-out the inn. We took a day trip to Renault Winery in Egg Harbor Township and at the end of that day it was great to return back to the peaceful ambiance of inn, fresh baked cookies and wine, which, we enjoyed while sitting on the wrap around porch. We also enjoyed our daily chats with Michael and Wanda, sometimes lasting into the late night hours. The outside hot tub is a great way to end the day and then turn in for a peaceful nights sleep. Rooms are very nicely decorated with comfy beds. There are chocolates and brandy in your room as well as high quality bath towels, robes and slippers for when you get out of the hot tub. We had a delicious hot breakfast every morning with hot pastries or muffins and late afternoon greeted us with fresh baked cookies, wine, tea and snacks. The Candlelight Inn is truly a home away from home. Thank you Wanda and Michael for such great hospitably and conversations.
