The Victorian Candle
Ranked #1 of 1 Hollywood B&B and Inns
Reviewed 9 December 2013

We, along with four friends, visited Southern Maryland (Solomon's Island) and stayed at this B&B.

Coincidentally, it was our 48th anniversary which was thoroughly enjoyed. Adding to the

enjoyment was the proprietor's personality and exuberant manner. The rooms were great and the

breakfasts excellent. A great visit to St. Mary's County from those of us from Baltimore County.

Room Tip: All the rooms on the lower level of this large and interesting house are very good selections.

What I loved most about my stay was the owner, Susan. Upon arrival we couldn't get over the wonderful smells from the kitchen. She was hosting a dinner party and invited us to come grab a plate of food later in the evening if we were hungry (we had dinner plans or we gladly would have). We mentioned to her that we would not be able to attend breakfast since we had to leave early, and she told us she would get up early and cook us up something.

We stayed in the Penthouse Suite which had a private outdoor entrance and two floors. It was clean and quiet, with a tv and a full bath.

The breakfast was delicious. She used her homemade spices in a sausage and egg scramble, and served it with waffles, and various meats. She let us try her smoked turkey and one bite was enough to convince us to buy one for Thanksgiving!

Overall, the room was clean and spacious, nothing special. The quality of the food and hospitality was outstanding and that is what will bring me back in the future! My only complaint is that the coffee was terrible (I'm a coffee snob!).

Room Tip: Penthouse Suite has a private outdoor entrance.

Really enjoyed our time at the Victorian Candle. Our penthouse suite was quite cozy and private, and the breakfast was superb. Enjoyed chatting with the proprietor, Susan. Conveniently located for exploring southern Maryland.

My wife and I stayed at the Victorian Candle B&B as a weekend getaway for our 25th anniversary. The house is absolutely gorgeous, relatively new (built in early 2000's) and very comfortable. We stayed in the Rose Room on the bottom floor and we had our own private entrance (all rooms have a private entrance). The room was nicely sized & had all modern furnishings. The bed was comfortable, the sitting/TV area was spacious and the bathroom was neat and clean. They had cable TV and wifi. The breakfasts were great! Susan (the owner) cooked all the breakfasts and served more food than we could eat. She served waffles, french toast, pancakes (blueberry and plain) omelets, sausage, bacon and fruit. Coffee, teas, juices also. It felt like being a member of the family. The house is in a nice location off the beaten path but close enough to the areas we wanted to visit. It was reasonably priced. We would not hesitate to stay there again!

Room Tip: Try to get a room one room in from the end of the house if the sound of AC/Heat Pump units is bother...

I picked this B&B on a whim. It turned out to be a very rewarding experience. I had the entire place to myself as I stayed during the week. The room was clean and spacious, with a separate outside entrance. The food was excellent! My hostess Sharon was charming and engaging! I will definitely add this spot to my favorite vacation places!

My husband and I spent a Saturday evening at the Victorian Candle to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the "Penthouse." We had a separate entrance at the back. You go up a steep flight of stairs to a sitting area and the bathroom and then another steep flight of steps to the bedroom. I would have preferred the bathroom to be on the same level as the bedroom, but overall the accommodations were nice. Breakfast was bountiful, and the owner was charming. She was very eager to show us photo albums of the home's construction (it's only 10 years old) and the weddings hosted there.

My girlfriend and I stayed at this place when we recently attended a wedding. We had forgotten to inform them that we are vegan but called on our way. They did their best to accommodate us on short notice and were quite gracious hosts. Price is sort of par for the course with this sort of thing. The best thing was that it was five minutes away from the wedding. I would recommend this place.
