Thing couldn't work out better, Christian was spot on with hi team. They were reponsive, helpful, courteous and always smiling. Steak was the main course and we received comments from a lot of guests that it was the bet steak they ever ate.

The best venue for any event, particularly on a sunny day. The views of the lake are unsurpassed, the food delicious and the service first class all around. If I had any daughters left this is where they would be married! All of my guests echoed the same. A great time was had by all!

My daughter's wedding was Memorial Day weekend. There is no other venue worth looking at in Connecticut as Candlewood Inn has it all. The setting is amazing. The staff was absolutely incredible, especially Christian. Christian was the person we dealt with every step of the way, especially the rehearsal and evening of the wedding. He was incredibly attentive and wonderful to deal with. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. All of our guests were blown away by this wedding venue. Most people said, why would anyone look any place else. I would recommend Candlewood Inn to anyone without any reservations at all.

The choice to get married at Candlewood Inn was an easy and obvious one! The venue speaks for itself. We had only visited a handful of other places and instantly knew when we drove up that this was where we wanted to say "I do." My husband and I got married over Memorial Day weekend. From the very beginning Christian and his staff were more than helpful and accommodating. They walked us through the entire planning process and helped alleviate some of the stress of planning a wedding. The weekend of our wedding Christian and his staff were by our side from the rehearsal dinner all the way through the end of our reception. From the ceremony through the reception Christian was there making everything run seamlessly. He was so much fun to work with! The biggest worry I had prior to the wedding was that they do not offer food tastings. If you are concerned about this, don't be! The food was fabulous. Our guests are still talking about the filet and how it was so tender it could be cut with just a fork. Thank you to Christian and his staff for a wonderful and memorable day! We couldn't be happier.

Since the very first day we came and speak with Filomena, we knew this is "our place". The place is beautiful and breath taking. Christian, Marlene, Hillary and all the wait staff were great and very attentive to our need. They were beside me and my fiancée all night to make sure everything were taken care of. People are still talking about the great meal and fantastic time they had at our wedding. We are sooooo happy that we picked Candlewood Inn. Cant wait for our beautiful pictures :)

We made the decision to have our wedding at the Candlewood after only visiting 3 other venues. Why? Because some things just feel right. We were married here on 10/6/2013 and never could have imagined such an amazing experience. I want to get on to something important so first, allow me to quickly sum up the food & service: our guest list was comprised of 150 picky Greeks and Italians. Most of which work within the restaurant industry, It is now February, and people are still raving. Start to finish, everything was top notch. But the food is not why you need to get married here. From the day we signed w/ Filomena, to the day we first met with Christian right through the end of what was a dream wedding there was no way we could have asked for more effort, dedication, attention to detail or higher quality anything, No, our only issue was with mother nature. ten months of excitement about getting married lakeside, and we woke up to rain and fog leaving us to make that decision that those who want an outdoor ceremony fear the most. It was at that point Christian went from wedding coordinator to hero. clearly upset for us, but remaining calm cool and collective, he created a breath taking indoor ceremony, and even with guests starting to arrive for a 3:30 pm start he told us it was our call up through 3:15 pm when he came in from a steady drizzle with the weather app open on his phone and assured us that he could still set up outside within 15 minutes if we wanted to chance it. For the sake of our guests we chose to remain inside and still had a ceremony too beautiful for words. The dedication and support we received from Candlwood was something you don't see very often. There's a reason anyone in CT you mention it to asks if you're working with Christian. This time last year he was our wedding coordinator. By our wedding day he was family. And he always will be thanks to his amazing character and giant heart.

We had a Saturday wedding during the day at Candlewood Inn and everything was picture perfect!! The staff were attentive, asking me if Id like a drink or if they could retreive anything for me. They even made a new batch of Chicken Satay because we missed cocktail hour doing pictures. Christian organized everything, I felt doted on like a celebrity the entire time! Theres a beautiful suite upstairs for the bride to get ready in with a private bathroom. There was not a single mistake, the staff was professional, attentive, efficient and friendly. They really made me feel like a Queen. The food was also Excellent! I was so pleased with the feedback from my guests. But the number one thing this venue has going for it is its view. BEAUTIFUL! Photo ops everywhere, beautiful sparkly lake, just perfect. I would choose this place over and over again. You really do get what you pay for.

The Candlewood Inn was beyond amazing! The staff was fun, respectful and organized. They kept things on time and moving throughout the whole day. We have gotten SO many compliments on how beautiful the venue was inside and out, how amazing the food and cake was and how much fun the staff was. Christian and Marlene were excellent to work with throughout the year. We had a Saturday day wedding with the ceremony on the lake at the gazebo. A day wedding at Candlewood is so reasonable and the service is the same as a night wedding which is $45 more a person. I looked at 11 other venues and Candlewood by FAR offered the best of everything. We had two attendants assigned to us and they even helped bustle my dress! A Saturday day wedding is an amazing deal at Candlewood and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an impressive venue on a reasonable budget. We keep hearing "That was the best wedding we have EVER been to!!!"

I am a little late on the review but my Husband and I got married at the Candlewood Inn June 9, 2013. It some how was the most gorgeous day despite the weather the rest of the week. The day couldn't have been more amazing and ALL of the staff was perfect at The Candlewood Inn. Everyone made me feel like a princess on my day, something I wasn't sure I would want... until I got it :) My husband and I were never without something to eat or drink. The timing of all aspects of the ceremony and reception had all be done perfectly, anything we had wanted had been executed. We did a sparkler exit without much planning but the staff made it a wonderful experience. Growing up taking the boat out on candlewood lake is some of my favorite childhood memories and The Candlewood Inn made it possible for such a beautiful lake to be a part of my life forever. I wouldn't have wanted my wedding day to have been at any other location, even the grandest in the country! The simplicity and elegance were simply breathtaking and the staff is unbeatable. I felt as if they were all my best friends by the end of the evening. Thank you Candlewood Inn for making our wedding day a perfect one!

There is no other word to describe the Candlewood Inn other than absolutely AMAZING. Ill start off by saying this was the first and only venue we ever looked at. We drove up to it and it's just so beautiful. The location of being right on the water is breath taking along with the landscaping is just stunning. We fell in love with it and booked it that day. Besides that fact of how beautiful the Candlewood Inn is the staff is most definitely the best part of it all.
Christian was our coordinator and he did a superb job is making sure everything was perfect for our special day. The whole team was so amazing. The wait staff made sure we always had a fresh cold drink in our hands from the time we pulled up to the Candlewood Inn all the way to the end of the night. Tony and Phil taught us how to "Wobble" on the dance floor- now that is a staff you could only wish to have!
The food was so declious, our guests are STILL talking about it now. It's been almost a month now since our wedding and everyone that went is still talking about it saying that is was one of the most beautiful and best overall weddings they've attended. All the credit goes to our vendors and The Candlewood Inn of course :)

So if you're a bride and groom out there looking for a venue, look no further, The Candlewood Inn will make your day more special than you could ever imagine. We couldn't have been happier!

The Candlewood Inn was amazing from start to finish. Christian and his staff were extremely attentive and very kind. Marlene was very nice and answered every question we had with a smile (and there were many). She seemed like she really likes her job.
We did not have to worry about anything the day of. We were told to just relax have fun and they would take care of the rest... and they did. The food was delicious. The ceremony was still beautiful despite having to move inside last minute due to the weather. Our guests are still commenting on how beautiful the venue was. Overall we had an amazing time and if we had to do it all over again we would not change a thing.

Matthew & I had a winter wedding at The Candlewood Inn. We had SUCH an incredible experience planning our event there. Christian & Marlene were extremely helpful & made the process very easy for us. They are organized and had great suggestions. I never doubted that our event was in great hands. Our guests raved about the location, the food, the service and overall atmosphere of our event. The food was delicious, the menu options were awesome (and plentiful) and they created the exact look we were trying to achieve for our ceremony & reception. I didnt have to think or worry at all in the process; they had everything under control!! I absolutely recommend The Candlewood Inn and we plan to use this venue for a future event!!

We got married the Friday post Hurricane Sandy and we could not have been happier than we were with the level of service at the Candlewood Inn. The entire staff was fantastic and Christian did a great job keeping the flow perfect for our wedding day. On the final hour we decided to move the wedding from outside to inside and it definitely exceeded my expectations. The food was great, drinks were plentiful and the grounds were well kept!

Thanks again to the Candlewood Inn staff!

The Candlewood Inn provided me with my dream come true wedding!!! Thanks to Christian and his team, I can honestly say that my wedding was perfect. From the very first day that I met Christian he was extremely friendly and helpful. I constantly had questions for him throughout the planning process and he ALWAYS responded immediately and made me feel very calm. I trusted Christian and his team with a lot especially when it came to the set-up on my wedding day and they did not make one mistake!! Everything was just perfect and beautiful. On my wedding day, I felt like a princess and had that one-on-one attention that is so important for all brides to have on their special day. I am from NY and I did not want to get married at the typical NY venue, so I discovered The Candlewood Inn and immediately fell in love with its beauty. Well, not only did I fall in love with its' beauty, but I also feel in love with the way that the entire staff made me feel from day one of planning all the way through my wedding day. If you want to have a magical wedding and deal with a friendly, and personable staff then plan your dream wedding at the Candlewood Inn! Thank you Christian and the entire staff for making my wedding the most amazing day of my life!!! P.S. The food was amazing as well!!! From the Fried Mac and Cheese and Goat Cheese Medallions to the Filet Mignon and Ice Cream Bar...OMG!!!!! Loved EVERYTHING!!

We could not have asked for more on our wedding day from the Candlewood Inn. During the year and half before our wedding day, Christian and his staff were extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. They were very organized and helped to keep us stress free. On the day of our wedding the staff was so attentive and ensured that our guests and us (the bride and groom) were having a good time. We even had two lovely staff members assigned to us all day. They brought food from our cocktail hour to the bridal suite to ensure that we were able to enjoy our cocktail hour. All of the food was excellent, all our guests were commenting on it. The cake that their in house bakery made looked amazing and was delicious. And one cannot forget the beautiful view of Candlewood Lake. Overall we could not have been happier with The Candlewood Inn and their wonderful team.

I could not have been happier choosing The Candlewood Inn as our reception venue. When looking at reception venues earlier in the planning stages, I had selected three in CT, and set up site visits at each- all booked for a weekend in January. The Candlewood Inn was the first place I saw, and I immediately cancelled my other site visits and booked! Their reception hall is immaculate, and is backdropped by a breathtaking view of Candlewood Lake. It was a wonderful spot for guests to relax and stroll the grounds with cocktails and hors d'oeurves, and our pictures set against the lake were amazing. The meal choices and appetizers were outstanding, the bar was well stocked and well attended, and the waitstaff was extremely attentive to not only our guests but to myself, my husband and our bridal party. They brought us cocktails and ice water, stocked us with our own hors d'oeurves, and even got my sister an icepack after she was stung by a bee during our photo shoot! Months later I am still getting phone calls and emails about how beautiful our wedding was, and The Candlewood Inn was the perfect location!

The staff at The Candlewood Inn was amazing. They took care of everything for me, and the entire event went off without a hitch. I couldn't of asked for anything better. From the moment my husband and I arrived to the very last dance they catered to my every need. I felt like a princess. The food was exceptional; especially my cake (YUM!). The atmosphere was elegant, with breathtaking views of the sunset over the water. My guests couldn't stop raving about what a fantastic time they had. It was a little on the pricier side, but well worth it. If I could do it all over again I would definetly have my reception at Candlewood!!

My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Candlewood Inn in the beginning of October. From the start, Christian and Christina were extremely helpful and open to what we asked for during the 10 months it took us to plan, which simplified what can normally be a very tedious job. The actual night of the wedding couldn't have been more amazing. The setting of our ceremony was absolutely stunning, and the professional staff went above and beyond to ensure that not only my husband and I were taken care of, but that all of my guests felt important during their time at our reception. I am still receiving rave reviews from family and friends about the delicious food, the service, and about how beautiful the venue was for our wedding. I want to thank the entire staff of the Candlewood Inn for making our special night the best night of our lives!

We had our wedding reception at The Candlewood Inn and were blown away by all of the individual attention and professionalism of the staff. All throughout the planning process the staff could not be more helpful and did all they could to make the planning easy and transparent!

On our big day everything went so well thanks to Christian (Event Manager) and all of the staff who made everything so easy and special. This venue is one in a million, the setting on the lake side is unbeatable, the food is delicious with great portions, and the staff are so friendly and helpful. They truly went above and beyond to include all of the unique special details that we wanted for our day. When we walked into the reception room we were speechless to how beautiful everything looked!

We couldn't imagine our event happening anywhere else!

10 out of 10, I would rate The Candlewood Inn a 20 out of 10 if I could. The food was delicious, my family and friends are STILL talking about it. The view is the backdrop for most of our wedding photos, and even though we got married in March, the pictures are GORGEOUS. The sunsets are out of this world, rain, sleet, snow, or shine, this place steals your breath. The service was impeccable, so much so that I actually took a moment to thank all the people bussing the tables and cleaning up at the end of my reception. Courteous and professional, they went above and beyond and knocked our socks off!!

During the reception you didn't even notice the staff, but right when I needed something they would appear out of nowhere to help. Christian was my coordinator and he was fantastic. Every detail was taken care of, everything was beautiful, and thanks to him, everything flowed beautifully.

The Candlewood Inn is an idyllic setting for a wedding. Right on the lake- beautiful! I think what stood out most for us with them was the service- they waited on us hand and foot all day- not just us, but our parents too - my Mom said they treated her like royalty. They took care of all of my special requests, and were two steps ahead of us, anticipating our needs, etc. They really just went above and beyond what I expected - and I expected a lot!

On top of all of this- our guests also said that the food was excellent! This place is worth every penny!!

They were attentive, detailed oriented, nice, and efficient. The were able to do everything that we asked from the set up of many individual items, to the handing out and organizing of our sparkler grand exit. All of the food was delicious and served at the same time. They worked seamlessly with our other vendors! The were always two steps ahead of us handing us drinks, appetizers, pulling out our chairs. I could not have asked for a more perfect day or a more perfect place. They operated to perfection!

From the moment we saw the Candlewood Inn, we knew it was the place we wanted to have our wedding. The view and location are a large reason we chose this venue but the service, professionalism and attention to detail are among other things that were amazing. Christian and his team are professional and good at what they do. The venue was set up with every last detail exactly as we had asked for. They were extremely flexible in letting us bring our own decorations and even our own napkins and chair bows which they set up. There are no "hidden" fees and the staff is eager to make your day the best day possible. The service is unbelievable - I don't think I went more than a minute or two without a drink throughout the whole evening. Overall, a great venue and great staff! I would highly recommend it!

Christian and his team are professional and good at what they do. The venue was set up with every last detail exactly as we had asked for. They were extremely flexible in letting us bring our own decorations and even our own napkins and chair bows which they set up. There are no "hidden" fees and the staff is eager to make your day the best day possible. The service is unbelievable - I don't think I went more than a minute or two without a drink throughout the whole evening. Overall, a great venue and great staff! I would highly recommend it!

The Candlewood Inn was the perfect venue for my daughter's wedding with 225 guests. We were seated comfortably even though we took up much of the seating area. The service was wonderful, especially Christian who attended to the needs of the bridal party and the appetizers and dinner was outstanding, especially the filet (cut it with butter knife). It is a beautiful venue to get married at and the pictures on Candlewood Lake are outstanding! Doing a day wedding is very economical (and who would not want to see the lake during their wedding)!! What a lifetime of wonderful memories my daughter will have thanks to The Candlewood Inn!

Our wedding was absolutely amazing because of Candlewood. The place is gorgeous, the staff was unbelievable (especially Christian) and the food was phenomenal. We truly had a fantastic experience. Even with regular wedding bumps in the road, we never felt an ounce of stress because of the great employees at Candlewood. Our guests are still raving about the food and drinks at the venue. Our pictures were perfect, we had corn hole out back, and there was enough room for a 240 people wedding to party! I can't say enough about Candlewood Inn! It was amazing! The only reason they didn't get 5/5 is because they didn't provide a large variety of beers to choose from, so we had to purchase some colors light and bud for the picky guests in the family! Otherwise, they were literally amazing. We are so thankful that we chose to have the wedding there and would recommend it to anyone!

The Candlewood Inn is a picturesque location to have your wedding. We had both our reception and our wedding ceremony at the Inn. Our wedding took place outside in front of the lake by their beautifully decorated Gazebo. The weather was a bit overcast, but because of the pure beauty of the area it couldn't take away from the day. The staff is incredible; on top of every need. The personal attendants taking care of all the brides needs in the suite before the ceremony, to after the ceremony bringing out appetizers and drinks. It was wonderful. They truly catered to every need, and thought of everything. The food was excellent, the staff was on top of it all - everything went to schedule perfectly... I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. It was truly the best day of my life. I'd say that the only thing that could have been improved was the wedding cake. The bakery that they use isn't that good. We didn't even keep the rest of the cake - we just threw it out. I can bake better; but the rest of the food was excellent! If having a mediocre wedding cake is the worst of it... that's a good deal, especially since you have the option of ordering your own cake if you like, and they will provide complimentary truffles in its place. If my husband and I had taken the time to go over and sample their cake prior to our wedding we would have special ordered our cake elsewhere, oh well. Not like we really need to be eating all that extra left over cake!!! LOL It's a blessing in disguise! =)

We had the most amazing wedding day ever! The people at the Candlewood Inn took care of every last detail and I had to worry about nothing at all over the course of the day, or even leading up to the event.

The food was spectacular and I can not begin to tell you how many compliments we got on our choice!

The Candlwood Inn was very beautiful we had an amazing wedding day. The staff professional and catered to our every need the day of the wedding. The staff was extremly flexible to additional things we would like to bring in or add to the package. I took a 1/2 star off for flexiblity b/c the place books up extremly quick. We booked The candlewood Inn 18 months ahead of time and we still couldn't get the date we wanted. We fell in love the place so much we were willing to change the date and it was so worth it!

This vendor was very easy to work with and made planning our reception a stress-free experience. The event went off without a hitch - the food was great and the views are amazing. Our guests kept commenting on how beautiful the space was. The staff was attentive but unobtrusive. This vendor was very professional and worth the price. Lastly, the staff took such good care of the bride and groom - they were great!

I fell in love with the candlewood inn when I first saw it! It is a gorgeous venue. Leading up to the wedding you deal with a couple different people. Christian was supposed to be the matre'd for our wedding but had the weekend off and left his two managers in charge. These two managers were lacking organization and did not study up on all the information that was left to them.
The ceremony got rained out and they kept trying to postpone it till the rain stopped, cutting our time down for the reception (horrible decision making on their part). I rarely saw the lady manager, melissa, after the ceremony. The other manager, mario, came to me during our picture session asking when we were expecting the cake and didnt like when my husband told him he had spoke to the cake person and the candlewood people told her what time to come, he had no idea.....

the two attendants that were assigned to the bridal party dissapeared after the dinner was served and I had to get my own drinks from the bar.

other wise the venue was awesome when the rain cleared up. my videographer said the food was better then it had ever been. from what i was able to eat, it was amazing. brazilian station def worth it! drinks were being poured a little light but it was open bar included in the package.
