“Wonderful get-away”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

We chose this B&B for 4 days and enjoyed the time immensely. The breakfasts were wonderful and our hosts were very accommodating--even put oour blue ice in their freezer so that we could take fresh food home. They also helped by pointing out area attractions, etc., for us that we wouldn't have known about otherwise.

Our room, Pastorale Suite, was great. The room included a sitting area and it was on the first floor, which was very handy for us--we went in and out during the day. There were beverages and goodies in the afternoon and we enjoyed getting to know other visitors during breakfast.

We recommend this B&B. The other guests were repeat visitors.

This is an incredibly lovely area and great for a "time away."

Close to all the Lancaster attractions, comfortable, and friendly. I've stayed here a number times throughout the years, and never been disappointed. Period furniture and a great breakfast - isn't that what you want in a victorian B&B?

Room Tip: Rooms in the back have the best view.

We booked this B&B for a one-night, mid-week stay in August, 2012. The owners were away when we made the reservation, and it took three days to get a call back from the covering person to confirm our reservation, after repeated calls and emails. Their vacation covereage process needs to be improved. We booked the one room with a king bed which is on the front of the property on the second floor. The B&B is located diagonally across the street from an all night diner which attracts trucks and motorcycles. Additionally, there is a red light not far away on this busy truck route (rte. 30). Consequently, we were unable to sleep the entire night because we had to listen to trucks running through their gears as they started from the stop light, and motorcycle traffic at the diner. Another couple staying in one of the rooms facing the rear said the noise did not bother them. Avoid the rooms facing the highway unless you want to stay up all night.
The owners state on their website that the property is up for sale, and the lack of overall maintenance shows, especially on the exterior. We experienced missing light bulbs in our room, and our toilet ran constantly (the original ball cock valve and flapper have never been changed). I had started to make a maintenance list but gave up when I ran out of paper. The bathroom consisted of a 2 foot plastic shower stall and toilet crammed in what appeared to be a former closet, and a pedestal sink in the room itself. The bed was comfortable enough and the room was clean. The covering employee left for the evening so you were basically on your own, unless you called the employee's home phone.
On the plus side, the hostess offered us lemonade and a home-baked treat upon arrival, and she prepared an excellent hot entre breakfast the next morning (asparagus souffle). When she arrived in the early a.m., she cheerfully allowed us to move up our 9 am scheduled breakfast to 8 a.m. so we could leave earlier than planned, having not slept all night. The B&B is conveniently located among the major PA Dutch country sights, and borders a picturescque farm.
This property definitely needs a new investor who hopefully can install noise protection in the front windows, and the entire place needs updating and serious maintenance. At least the rates here are moderate, as they should be.
I would not recommend using the on-line reservation system as you may find yourself waiting for confirmation up to three days after forking over your credit card information. This caused us stress, when we were looking for a pleasant get-away. Just call and make sure the owners are present and not on vacation....If you book a room on the rear you may have a very nice experience. Just stay away from those front rooms..... I won't be staying there again, and I suspect the noise issue is a major reason why they lose potential returning guests....All the reviews I read on this property were positive, so I did not benefit from a true review regarding the noise. I hope this review saves others from our bad experience.

Room Tip: Do not book the noisy front rooms (trucks and motorcycles)

Our host was very hospitable and friendly. He allowed us to check in early and keep a few items we purchased from an Amish Farmer's Market in the kitchen refrigerator. The Inn offered complimentary Amish baked goods in the parlor and cordials in our room. Our breakfast was delicious and served in a lovely, quaint sun porch. There are fantastic views of farmland on either side and to the rear of the Inn. The Inn is a nice escape with no TV or internet in your room, which is not very common these days. It's located on the main highway, however, so you're not totally away from it all.

My girlfriend and I come to PA every few months. We have tried several B&B's and motels. After years of doing this we have finally settled on Candlelight Inn. This is a beautiful place with a very warm feel in the winter time. There is delicious hot cider, chess, checkers, cards, and a tv in the living room. The first time we were here we stayed up late just playing chess and drinking the cider. The owners are very nice as well. My only gripe is that the beds seem a bit old and therefore are very squeeky. If you wake up in the middle of night and roll over or get up the squeeking is easily heard and makes me feel bad for waking up my lady. However, that is certainly not enough to stop us from continually visiting this place. Enjoy your stay!

I saw good reviews and booked my stay there. But clearly it was very disappointing experience.

We stayed at this place and did not have good experience. Hosts were good, but the house was not in good condition.

Here is why our stay was NOT as we expected
(1) House from inside was really dark + decor was not appealing
(2) It had a strong smell of candles and room freshener.. Really Strong
(3) Squeaky floors..
(4) We took Allegra room and it was really dark. Look ok in pics, but in reality, its very very dark
(5) Bathroom door knob was broken. My husband fixed it at 10:30 in the night, as the door was not closing at all. Knob came into my hand.
(6) Ceiling fan was constantly making noise
(7) House was right outside the highway. Not much of nuisance, but you will be constantly reminded that you are on highway
(8) Bathroom was really small. If you standing under the shower and if you dare to lift your arm or move, then BOOM!!
(9) Sorry for TMI, ppl on the next room were doing it and you can hear, the walls were that thin.. yikes..

This was my experience.. Hope this helps.. If you are someone who is ok with the above listed points, then this place is for you!

I found the Candlelight Inn on line and called for reservations. We arrived early for check in and Tim was very hospitable with coffee and hot cider and cookies and we sat with our friends in the parlor and visited until time to go to the theater. Tim recommended a very nice restaurant for dinner after the show. Breakfast the next morning was more than expected and our beds were super comfortable! Loved the Victorian decor and I highly recommend this B& B!!
