Candlelight Lodge Policies
  • Reservations for certain suites at the Candlelight Lodge usually requires a two night minimum on many major holidays, summer and Wine Trail Weekends.
  • For Weekly Stays in our four Vacation Rental Suites with kitchens there is no 8% NYS sales tax.
  • There is a discount for longer term stays or there maybe for special accommodations.  In using the  Reservations and Availability link you may need to contact us directly by telephone at 1-716-326-2830 for this discount.
  • We offer suites not rooms with more spacious accommodations. We have quality antique furnishings and each suite also includes more modern amenities such as a microwave, DirecTV with premium channels, wireless, AC, mini-fridge and coffee machine. Still, we only accommodate two guests per suite.
  • Children over 14 are welcome as guests, sorry no pets. We have four suites which will accommodate a third person and all of our suites require, if there is a child, full time adult supervision.
  • We reserve the right to later charge your credit card for any losses or damages beyond normal wear incurred during your stay.

  • Smoking is permitted only on the patio and outside porches (5) of both of our Landmark  Inns.
  • As the oldest continuously operated B&B in Chautauqua County since 1986 we have always tried to support, promote and contribute to our local businesses and larger historical organizations. We are not paid members of any larger organization that selectively promotes others through their advertising or encourage individuals to promote us through paid reviews.
  • Vacation Rentals We offer 4 suites at Candlelight Lodge and the whole of the Captain Storm House next door as Vacation Rentals by the week at a discounted price - no breakfast, only midweek maid service and no NYS sales tax, only a County Bed tax. Each has a fully furnished kitchen.
  •  Check - in is between 2 PM and 6 PM  otherwise please make arrangements in advance. Please No Check -ins after 8 PM. The privacy of our guests is important and we are a Bed and Breakfast, not a Hotel and do not offer late night services.
  • Reservations, please try to give us at least 24 hours advance notice. Many weekends are busy and present additional difficulties. We also need time to make your experience a special one.
  • We try to confirm with email all reservations made within 48 hours. Certain reservations made within a few days of your arrival may be difficult to timely confirm.  For example, we may not be able to confirm a reservation with an incorrect email address, credit card number or a wrong telephone number.  
  • Please call when you are 30 minutes from Westfield so we can meet you upon arrival and check you in. We also like to have time to personally show you the Inn, answer any questions and make you familiar with interesting places in the area to visit.


  • Breakfast
  • Included in your room rate is an $18 breakfast certificate per couple, good at three local restaurants, personally selected that specialize in breakfast. This certificate is valid at Jack's  in Barcelona Harbor next to the Lighthouse and Pier on Lake Erie (oldest gas Lighthouse on the Great Lakes), one mile from Candlelight Lodge. Barcelona Harbor is Westfield's best kept secret, walk the Pier or Lake Erie shore and enjoy magnificent sunsets. Across from Jack's is When Pigs Fly, a Barbeque Restaurant and Westfield Fisheries for fresh and smoked fish. This certificate is also valid at the Main Diner in Westfield, an original 50's diner, two short blocks from Candlelight Lodge, easy walking. Lastly this certificate is valid at the J&B Mayville Diner in Mayville NY (5 mi.), on Chautauqua Lake and a few miles from Chautauqua Institution. These restaurants specialize in breakfast and serve from 7 AM to 11 AM and have a more complete menu.  Perhaps they can help you also  address a more specific food issue. 
  • Choose a different scenic location for breakfast, enjoy what you prefer and when you would like to have breakfast.  If not a breakfast fan, you can also use these certificates for lunch. This allows yoy an opportunity to explore Chautauqua County, its businesses and unique shops and meet our friendly people.


  • One night's deposit in advance or 50% of the reservation, whichever is greater - Visa or Master Card. We charge your credit card when the reservation is made. Balance at the time of arrival.
  • Wine Trail and many Special packages requiring tickets or other special arrangements need full payment in advance.
  • We accept credit cards, Visa or Master Card. Balance by Check or Cash is preferred to save a 3% credit card charge at the end of your stay. No additional charge for deposits.


Cancellation Notice two weeks prior to your arrival

As a small business, any cancellation affects us greatly. Please understand, we must maintain a firm cancellation policy. You are responsible for your reserved stay - we have held the room  for you to the exclusion of others and have made whatever arrangements necessary for you prior to your arrival. B&B's normally are booked much longer in advance. Given a much shorter period of time to rerent and the fact that you may be staying multiple nights makes it more difficult for us to fully rent the room to others.

  • Outside of the two week reservation notice, there is a full refund of the room deposit less a minimum $35 cancellation fee per night, per room reservation.
  • Cancellation within two weeks of your arrival, if we are able to rent the room, your full deposit minus the $35 cancellation fee will be refunded to you.
  • If unable to rent the room within the two week notice you forfeit your deposit and 50% of the remaining balance due will be charged against your credit card. You will then be issued a gift certificate for this additional amount charged on your credit card towards a future similar stay. If you return at a later date you will lose only 50% of your original reservation.  Many other B&B's  hold you completely responsible for your full reservation. We specify our cancellation policy in detail and make it easy to find.  Gift certificates are honored for one year only.
  • Longer Term Rental (More than three days), cancellation if not made outside of a month, you lose your deposit due to the difficulty of not being able to fully rerent. Unlike other B&B's we have larger accommodations, kitchens etc. and specialize in longer term rentals.
  • Wine Trail  and many Special Packages, we ask that you take responsibility for your full reservation  due to our need to purchase tickets, hold the room to the exclusion of others further in advance and make special arrangements, etc. If able to re-rent all of the reservation will be returned, minus the cancellation fee and any other special charges.
