What to expect here at Candlelite Inn: A Ludington Michigan Bed & Breakfast:
One of our recent guests happily said "there is something new to see around every corner". Your innkeeper Melanie and our family wants you to have a getaway to really remember, and we strive to stand out from other lodging facilities and Michigan B&B's. We put plenty of thought into all of the smallest details. That is something that is so much fun for us as well. We are always purchasing different items that we think our guests will enjoy. During your visit, please make sure to help yourselves to the assortment of treats you will find throughout the common areas.
Another guest termed the atmosphere here at Candlelite Inn Bed & Breakfast to be one of casual elegance, which definitely fits, and we want you to feel comfortable and right at home from the moment you walk in the doors. As the parking is in the rear of the inn, just continue into the driveway to the back upon arrival. You will find plenty of space in the Candlelite Inn private parking lot off of the avenue.
There is really no need to come to the front of the inn unless you prefer. There are vintage doorbells at both the front and the back. It is easier to enter at the back entrance where the kitchen is located. The kitchen here is never closed so you can pop in at any time and get ice and ice creams from the freezer, or use the microwave to heat something up or pop up some popcorn.
Besides your room key, you will have your own key to one of the entrance doors, to easily come and go as you wish and when you wish.
We are often asked if breakfast is included, and it certainly is! Please let us know your favorite foods, or if you wish to be surprised for breakfast. Also, let us know when and where you wish to eat, and if you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions we need to be aware of.
Your innkeepers love to cook, and prepare a delectable full classic breakfast served on fine china at your time of choosing. Over the summer and into fall, as many food items as possible are purchased from the local farm markets, and we shop daily so as to have very fresh and best possible ingredients sparing no expense. We serve your full delicious breakfast family style at your time of choosing, and you tell us your favorite breakfast dishes and beverages, or if you wish to be surprised.
You will have the same lovely breakfast whether you are rising early to go boating or fishing, or sail on the SS Badger Ludington car ferry, or if you are wanting a nice late breakfast. Besides enjoying the lovely formal dining room, the front porch is used much for the year. From spring through early winter, the enclosed front porch is a favorite breakfast spot. Guests also relish being able to sip their coffee or other favorite beverages outside on one of the decks.
Freshly baked desserts, snacks, and beverages are always available for you to help yourself to.
Another question we are asked often is if there are shared bathrooms. Candlelite Inn Bed & Breakfast is blessed with seven uniquely themed guest rooms and ten bathrooms in all. Each guest room does have its own in room bathroom (no sharing or walking down a hallway), although the baths in the Lace and Garden Rooms are rather creative. There are detailed descriptions of each room and two photos of each on the website.
Candlelite Inn is also an eco friendly Michigan bed and breakfast. We are a long standing certified Partner with Michigan Green Lodging. Candlelite Inn was the first green bed and breakfast in the entire Ludington area, and is one of a small handful of lodging establishments in Michigan that is certified by the state.
When you arrive, we will give you a quick tour to show you where various amenities are located within the inn. This is your home away from home, and we want you to just relax, enjoy yourselves, help yourselves to treats, ask if you have any questions or need anything at all, and just have a fantastic, memorable getaway.
