The moment I pulled in the parking lot, wow this place is Beautiful! OMG! My friend & I were looking to stay here a few yrs. ago & were booked. I finally had the opportunity to stay here 2 days. What an experience.. From the moment I walked into the kitchen & met Bonnie, Mike, their employees family/friends &"Patches" their dog, adorable. Sings & says "I love you". I felt like I was at home. They were so inviting warm & friendly. The accommodations were superb!! Spacious rooms & decor all beautiful. Bonnie & Mike thought out every detail & design both inside & out. Great for family,kids,& pet friendly.. Also, weddings,parties etc.. The grounds are spectacular!! Stunning!! When you walk in the front of the property the lake view, love the sand beach,swimming area, sitting areas, waterfall, huge fire pit,deck & the Lighthouse.The sunset Awesome!! At night when all the property is lit up with lights. Amazing!! This place is so relaxing. Bonnie is a Fantastic cook. The breakfasts were delicious!! Bonnie took the time out of her schedule to show Carrie & I the Cottages that are separate from the Lighthouse Lodge. Perfectly done to the tee. Decorating & accommodating for bigger families/handicap accessible & pet friendly too. Bonnie & Mike took me on a Pontoon Boat ride with"Patches" & Gunner my dog. What a beautiful day..Showed me the views and homes. Took pics & I enjoyed very much.Think Gunner did too!! This place is great!!. I can't say enough. I am looking forward to coming back again. Great memories. Bonnie & Mike are the most incredible hosts. If you want to stay at a Bed & Breakfast.. This is it!! You will Love it.. Thank you, Sandy
I found this place purely by chance! At first, I thought it was slightly pricey. But once we arrived there - I NEVER regretted it. I ended up renting The Cottage on the Lake (sleeps 7 people). It was a newly remodeled 2 bed, 1 bath, full kitchen, sofa and a Murphy bed house. It had a beautiful porch, lawn chairs, grill, fire pit, unforgettable view of Lake Shafer. The house had EVERYTHING one can possibly think of. The owners of the Lighthouse, Bonnie and Mike, were VERY nice, hospitable and accommodating. The Lighthouse Lodge is huge. They have few cottages and multiple rooms for rent. They have docks for boats if you have your own, plenty of parking space, beautiful grounds, small beach for little kids to play, beach toys, pontoon for rent incl captain. They also have beautiful event facilities. The weekend we were staying, there was a wedding - the party seemed very pleased with all the arrangements. Nearby there is a boat/jet ski/pontoon rental place with reasonable rates. Also, Indiana Beach Amusement Park is within 10 min drive, golf course, camping grounds...Our family had a blast and we are planning to come back next year.
We have stayed here four times now and will continue to go back every single year for our anniversary! It is a PERFECT getaway that is close to home but feels like you're in another state! You will not be disappointed! Check and Rhonda provide execellent service and their attention to detail is amazing! ¿¿
My husband and I love staying at Cabins & Candlelight! The accommodations are always exactly what we need! It is so peaceful there. The perfect place to relax and unwind! We will definitely come back again and again!
My husband and I wanted to get away for the night but did not want the hustle and bustle of Indiana Beach. After checking out the Lighthouse I reserved the Hawaiian room with a balcony looking out at Lake Shafer. Bonnie's breakfast was awesome with many of her own homemade goodies. Mike spent time chatting with us while sitting in the screened in patio. It was like being part of the faimily. I would recommend renting a boat and crusing around the lake for the day as well.
We were looking for a quiet, relaxing, distraction free short trip and we found the perfect spot here. It was very clean, everything you need to cook and prepare meals, we loved getting away from it all for a couple of days. Loved being off the grid with no cell phone service!! We will definitely return, hopefully over the winter!
Stayed her with my husband 2 days for my birthday & then we went cabin hopping to another cabin. I would of rathered stayed at this 1 for the 3rd day because Chuck & Rhonda's cabin was so much nicer! They had a sleep # bed so we both slept perectly & if wasn't I certainly could of curled up on their carpet & take a nap as it was the softest carpet I have ever felt. We are going back next month for 3days for my husband's birthday & I can't wait!!!!
This is a wonderful place to stay to get away and enjoy peace and quiet! The cabin is very comfortable and cozy. The cabin is stocked with a variety of breakfast foods and it is always so clean. We love to set on the glider swing on the front porch and enjoy the scenery around the cabin. Also, the screened in back porch with the lounge chairs is a great place to take a nap. Love the Jacuzzi and all the amenities that make this a place you will want to return to year after year.
After spending three days at the Lighthouse Lodge, we booked another reunion for next year. The grounds are beautifully maintained, there are multiple areas for family and/or groups to gather, and there is plenty to do. Between the two sides of our family, we have attended over twenty reunions, and the Lighthouse has the best set-up and amenities by far. We can't wait to head back!
Cabins & candlelight is a wonderful gem. A stunning cabin located in a beautifully private setting. From the moment we arrived the cares of everyday life disappeared. We took a moment and sat on the front porch to listen to nothing but the birds sing. The cabin itself is perfect. From the quaint dinner table to the screened in porch. This place is the perfect getaway! We especially enjoyed the critters of nature at dusk and dawn!! I would like to add that the cleanliness of this cabin was impeccable! They really go out of their way to make their guests feel appreciated and special. We will definitely be back!! P.S. the cell reception is nonexistent but who cares, you are there to get away!!!
Our weekend at Cabins and Candlelight was by far one of the most relaxing and serene weekends we have experienced. The setting is perfectly nestled in the beauty of God's creations. The property is manicured to perfection and the cabins are beautiful and clean, and did I say clean......like new! The well stocked kitchen was absolutely delightful, we had no reason to leave the entire weekend. We enjoyed the long walks and the beautiful Sugar Creek. We will be making this one of our regular getaways..... Thanks Chuck and Rhonda A +++
My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend at the cabin! We are both into our electronic devices - smart phones, video games, movie streaming so you'd think we'd be bored right?? WRONG!! It was amazing to unplug from all of it! We read books and played scrabble by the fireplace, watched movies, and grilled outside. The cabin was absolutely beautiful! You can tell Chuck and Rhonda take pride in providing 5 star customer service and all the comforts of home! We are already planning our next stay!
My husband and I just returned from a short getaway. Because it was still off season, it was very quiet and Bonnie was able to give us a history of the lodge and the area. Another guest decided to stay an extra night in the room we had booked and Bonnie upgraded us to another room. It was just delightful. Huge room, nice views, wonderful breakfast......we were so glad that we found this B & B not too far from home. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends.
We had the pleasure to stay in the first cabin, and it wasn't a disappointment. The cabin was meticulously cleaned and maintained. You can see the thought of each piece of furniture and décor. The hot tub was fantastic, and the fireplace was easy to use and perfect for a movie and cuddling with your loved one. The fridge was stocked for our stay with plenty of breakfast foods. We opted for the steak dinner and sides, and we were very happy with the results. There was a private outdoor grill that we were able to use, and the kitchen was well stocked with all cookware to finish the rest of the meal. There was also a full array of dinnerware, utensils, and cutlery available in the cabin. Needless to say, the experience was fantastic!
"Cabins and Candlelight" are beautiful, remote, clean cabins that offers peace, relaxation, nature. Our cabin was immaculate, offered a comfortable bed ,large Jacuzzi tub to soak in, bird feeder that attracted many birds, and all the comforts of home (well supplied kitchen, beautiful clean bathroom). The gas fire place was warm and cozy as well as the whole cabin atmosphere! The cabin was remote enough to enjoy peace and quiet but near enough to Turkey Run State Park, Lafayette, Crawfordsville, Indy, and even Brown County State Park. We would love to go back and highly recommend these cabins. Just beautiful! we enjoyed our stay!
My husband & I spent 2 days at Cabins and Candlelight and we were very impressed. As we walked in, there was beautiful music playing on the stereo with a soft light on. This place is truly a dream come true. Nicely decorated and cozy; loved the fireplace and the whirlpool. Liked the fact that everything was furnished and we didn't have to bring hardly anything. We really enjoyed the screened-in porch off of the bedroom. We loved watching the birds and squirrels. This place was so peaceful and a perfect get-a-away for us to have some quality time together. We definitely want to come back and are telling all our family & friends about it. Thank you for everything.
We were celebrating our 19th anniversary... and loved the serenity of the cabin. We enjoyed a crab dinner by candlelight and several "soaks" in the spacious hot tub. This was not our first visit and will not be our last. What a wonderfully romantic place!
We were celebrating our 18th anniversary and sorta our "first" honeymoon. I did not know what we were doing and was amazed and awed at the wonderful plans my hubby had made for us. It was WAY more than expected and was wonderful, peaceful, romantic and just what we needed! Only after an hour, I was ready to return! After 2 days, it was definite!
This is an excellent seclusion area with time alone to catch up with loved ones in this case my wife room was huge the scenery was perfect !! The breakfast was great we love the fellow ship with others there our stay was so good we are planning our next visit for 2017
My husband and I visited Cabins and Candlelight and our only complaint was our time there wasn't long enough. It was clean, comfortable, romantic and had everything we could possibly need available to us. The bed was very comfortable as well which is always important when sleeping outside the comforts of home.
We had visited another resort on this site in the 1960's and returned to see what the Triplett's had done to the location. WOW! An outstanding facility for individual fun, reunion, wedding, get-away, etc. We loved the room and the incredible hospitality. Then to top it off, an awesome breakfast from Bonnie. A hidden treasure of Lake Shafer.
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!
