  • Summer Vacation

    "Great time of year to visit Candlewood Lake. The private beach area was never busy and boating was pleasurably not hectic. I recommend a visit to Chicken Rock for a nice jump and the rope swing nearby. The house is in a quiet friendly neighborhood. Not luxurious, but definitely cozy!"

  • Spacious house in good location

    "We enjoyed our stay on Candlewood Lake while staying in this house. It is large enough to accommodate six to eight people. Our favorite room was the screened in porch which had a good view of the lake. The community beach is just a short walk from the house."

  • Lovely and very comfortable

    "Every year for past 25 years my 4 sisters and I have gone away together to have a long weekend together. We stayed at this charming home And could not have been more pleased. Living room was so comfortable, beds are wonderful, master bath fantastic ,kitchen updated and plenty of room for all of us to be together preparing meals. We loved all the charming touches of many built in shelves and cabinets. Second full bath near kitchen came in very handy. The bedroom with curtain, which is much larger than it appears in picture, with large closet and door to patio was such a hit we had to draw straws to see who would be the lucky one to call it their own for weekend. Overall we wish we had more time to spend there. I would definitely return. Owner was very easy to work with and even had a bottle of wine for us from a nearby vinyard."
