“Didn’t Want to Leave!”
We stayed at one of the lakeside cottages for a week in late September, and loved it so much we actually considered changing our plans to stay a little longer, as we enjoyed it so much, we genuinely didn’t want to leave just yet!
Mark and Heidi are just perfect hosts – very warm and friendly, welcoming, informative and generous of their time.
The cottage is just as in the pictures. It was immaculately clean, spacious and very comfortable. Very well stocked with linens and towels. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils, has a full size stove and fridge. We made use of the outdoor grill – after all, not many restaurants in town offer that view with dinner!
We got up to catch the sunrise a few times… you only have to shuffle a few feet from bed and it’s so worth it for the spectacular dawn over the water. It was breathtakingly beautiful.
We’d highly recommend getting out on the lake – you really get a sense of the enormity of the lake. You also see that, compared to other similar cottages in the area, Candlelight has the best location!
As it’s away from the main road, it’s blissfully quiet too. The fire pit is a really nice bonus, with kindling and firewood provided. Speaking to some guests in our neighbouring cottages, we learned that some families (and fishing groups) have been going to Candlelight for over 30 years and their kids now holiday there with their own young families. Having spent only a week here, we can absolutely understand why.
“Kudos for CANDLELIGHT!”
Candlelight Cottages LLC in Bolton Landing features comfortable, very well equipped cabins and cottages. Often such housekeeping units are lacking some item, appliance, or amenity which would make the experience even more enjoyable. Not so at Candlelight. Our kitchen was replete with ample cooking gear, dishes, flatware, and all appliances. The new flat screen TV featured a variety of channels, and there was a local TV directory in the room as well. Our cottage was spacious, comfortable, and and lacked nothing.
This complex is on Lake George, and therefore has its own beach and dock. All manner of activities are available on site. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend Candlelight Cottages for a family or couples vacation.
“Great Place for Families & Fishermen”
Candlelight is a great place to stay while in the LG region. It has everything for a family vacation and also caters to the hardcore fisherman. Have been staying with Mark and Heidi for over 10 years and they take excellent care of returning guests. The cabins are very comfortable and are continually being upgraded with newer, modern features. The docks are set up with electric, so recharging is not an issue. You can also recharge yourself while relaxing on the deck/porch of your cabin.
My only regret about Candlelight is that I can’t get there more often. Thanks Candlelight!
We had a family reunion in late July and had to stay at different locations since there was limited availability at Candlelight Cottages. The families that stayed at Candlelight LOVED everything about it. When I asked if they had any problems, the response was a resounding “NO!” and one of them remarked that if there had been a problem, Mark or Heidi would have fixed it immediately. The cabins were very clean and comfortable, and the kitchens were well-stocked with pots, pans, glassware, flatware, plates, etc. The BBQ was conveniently located near the deck and the outdoor picnic table.
The lakefront was beautiful with very safe areas for the young ones to swim. Everyone made great use of the kayaks and row boats. On shore, there are new, colorful Adirondack chairs, a lovely gazebo, a fire pit, life jackets, etc. If we wanted something, it was sure to be available.
The youngsters loved the game room and had great fun playing ping pong, pool, shuffleboard, etc.
