Our goal is to make our guests feel as comfortable as possible at The Candlelite Inn Bed & Breakfast. Many people, including ourselves, are non smokers and enjoy a smoke free environment. Due to health and safety reasons, smoking is not permitted in the inn. Guests are welcome to smoke outside on the deck only. Anyone choosing to ignore this policy will be asked to leave immediately, will be charged for the entire reservation, and will incur an additional $150.00 cleaning charge.

Responsible use of alcohol is allowed on our premises.

If any damages to the rooms or common areas are incurred, or if any items are missing, guests will be charged accordingly.

As pet lovers ourselves, we welcome well behaved pets in either The Americana Room, or The Ludington Room, ($10.00 pet fee per night) which are both on the second floor with a private outside entrance. For the consideration of other guests, pets are not allowed anywhere else inside The Candlelite Inn. Please see and observe all pet policies (listed below) if you are traveling with a beloved pet.

Pet Policies: Candlelite Inn - Ludington Bed & Breakfast

Candlelite Inn invites you and your dog to relax and wander among our colorful back yard with multiple sitting areas. We welcome your pet with his or her own food bowl, water bowl, and some yummy dog treats, plus an extra blanket for your bed so your pet can comfortably snuggle, and a doggie towel for toweling off and wiping those occasional muddy paws.  Your dog will also have his or her own soft fresh bed, fit for a prince or princess (these have washable covers). There is a modest $10.00 fee to help cover a thorough room cleaning.

Where can I walk and play with my dog?

Although we don't have the largest of yards, guests can walk their dogs (always on a leash) along the rear of our property, or enjoy a lovely walk along scenic Ludington Avenue and the surrounding area. Plastic bags are available to clean up after your pet’s “walks.”  

Can I go out for a few (or a lot) of hours without my pet?

Please do NOT leave pets alone in your room except during breakfast with well mannered dogs, as you can also enjoy your breakfast in your room. Crates may keep lonely dogs from damaging carpets or furniture, but it won’t keep them from disturbing other guests by barking or whining. If your pet is going to miss you and you suspect they may fuss, please make arrangements to leave your pet at home, as this creates a very stressful situation for your innkeeper.

Can my pet friend have breakfast with us at the dining table?

Sorry, pets cannot attend the breakfast table with you - health requirements, for one.

My pet is very well trained and socialized. Can he or she roam freely in the inn without a leash?

Sorry, but no. Some guests have allergies, and may be intimidated or fearful of dogs that are not under direct control. We need to be sensitive to every guest.

What about outside on the lawns?

Again, the rights of other guests have to be considered. Dogs must be kept on a leash outside at all times, and we sure don't want to have a pet run into the streets.

My dog isn't completely potty trained, is this okay?

Sorry, but pets must be potty trained. If we do incur any messes of any kind, or damage from chewing, owners will be charged accordingly.

What if my dog forgets his manners and gets noisy, or is aggressive toward other guests?

You may be asked to leave immediately and without a refund if your pet challenges other pets, frightens or intimidates other guests, or makes excessive noises.
