Wonderful Stay!

The Candleberry Inn is remarkable. The rooms are big, but cozy and very clean. The bed is so comfortable for a good night sleep. There are antiques throughout the inn. Outside the trees and gardens are beautiful Breakfast is home made with vegetables and fresh herbs from their garden. The innkeepers are fabulous! Stu and Charlotte are a wealth of information for things to do, places to see, and where to eat. They are very friendly and the hospitality is endless. Brewster is centrally located and a quaint town. If you go, you must visit the Brewster General Store. I would recommend the Candleberry Inn to anyone. It will be a stay you will always remember and want to go back to. Bill&Stacey

The Candleberry Inn was exceptional. The food was homemade and delicious. Charlotte was very informative about places to see and restaurants to go to. The rooms were very clean and cozy. The inn was conviently located to everything. Charlotte and Stuart were very friendly and accommodating. Our time spent on the Cape and at the Candleberry Inn was relaxing and enjoyable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when we come to the Cape. You must try, you won't regret it. Bill & Stacey


I loved my stay!

This is the place to stay in the Cape Cod area. The service went above what I expected. The food and drinks were fresh, home-made and delicious! The room was sparkling clean and had air conditioning. The location was close to the convention that I attended. I enjoyed riding bike and viewing the beautiful landscape on the property as well as in Brewster, numerous flower boxes and trees that provided shade. I enjoyed the personable service, the owners answer any questions you have and introduce you to other guests with common interest. This really made my trip since I was traveling alone and I made a new friend. How great is this! What I didn't like. There is no internet service or business office, however, this really was a positive because I got the much needed relaxation away from my computer. Sincerely, Michelle


Convenient and comfortable B&B

Felt like I was staying with friends

My stay at the Candleberry Inn was fantastic. The Innkeepers were friendly and accommodating and did everything they could to make my stay relaxing and enjoyable. They were knowledgeable about local restaurants and things to do. I would definitely visit them again on my next visit to the Cape!


You have got to stay here!

We've stayed here twice - once in the fall and once in the Spring. The rooms are so comfortable, the breakfast is so delicious, and the hosts are just the nicest people. The location is great - less than 45 minutes to Provincetown, and quicker to the beaches in between.


Lovely Brewster Inn

Excellent breakfast, extremely clean. We enjoyed our stay.


A wonderful surprise

4.8 on October 07, 2009

This was an anniversary trip and it started with a very reasonably priced full (not half) bottle of Moet. The room was much better than the website images, and weather permitting, the fireplace is a nice amenity. We typically stay in a B&B when we go away and this ranks at the top of our favorites list. Great dining from casual and fine are close by. And Brewster is more than charming with its antique shops and a quaint village mall just a short drive away. You will thoroughly enjoy your stay and this location.


Charmed in Brewster

Staying at the Candleberry Inn was an extremely pleasant experience. The Inn is beautiful and the central location on the Cape allowed us to see so much of the Cape in just a couple days.


Brewster's Best
