This was our second time staying at Candlelbay Inn. We like to visit the outlets and the Oxford Casino every year. We love it at the Inn. Very clean, comfortable and homey. It's in a prime location for shopping, right off Main St and all those shops!! Connie the Innkeeper couldn't be nicer, very accommodating and down to earth. Great...

We had an excellent experience at the Candlebay Inn! I wish we had arrived earlier so we would have had more time to enjoy the welcoming cosiness of this Inn. Connie made every effort to make us feel comfortable and welcome! The room was clean and cosy and teh Inn is located conveniently in the center of Freeport. A delicious...

Connie was a wonderful hostess. She checked in with us often making sure we were comfortable. She offered us extra plates, glasses, and utensils for when we "ate in" after picking up a wonderful meal at a nearby restaurant that she recommended. She had toys and towels for dogs to use. The breakfast each morning (we stayed 2 nights) was...

This is a lovely B&B in Freeport, ME. The room we had was great and easily accommodated the three of us. We arrived at a somewhat unsocial hour (around 22.00) and found the host to be very understanding and welcoming. I would have no hesitation in booking this B&B again. This B&B is only a very short walk from the...

This was a last minute reservation for a busy Fall weekend, and Connie was extremely accommodating as my plans firmed up. I stayed in the smallest room but was very comfy. Breakfast was superb, the grounds and garden delightful, and the little touches of a friendly historic B&B were wonderful!

Candlebay Inn was a delightful find! A historic home lovingly made into a welcoming destination. Our hostess Connie was warm and welcoming. We stayed in the smallest room, (the Clover room) but its size was still more that enough. With its own private bath and shower, the room was decorated warmly with everything we needed. A lovely sitting room with...
