  • Breakfast
  • Included in the full service room rate is an $18 breakfast certificate per couple, good at two 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. 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 you 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 require a credit card for the deposit.  Balance can be paid by Check or Cash to save a 4% credit card charge at the end of your stay.  


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. If you must cancel, we encourage you to rebook for an open future date within six months so that you are only charged the minimum $25 per night for the cancellation. 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 farther 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.

  • Cancellation prior to two weeks of your arrival , there is a refund of half of your deposit.
  • Cancellation within two weeks of your arrival, there will be a refund of half of your deposit if we are able to rerent the room, otherwise you lose your deposit. Remember, as stated above we encourage you to consider rebooking.
  • Cancellation of Longer Term Rental (Four days or more), requires a one month notice. Prior to a month you lose half of your deposit. Cancellation within one month, you may lose your entire deposit.  There is a refund of half of your deposit if we are able to rerent the room for the same period of time.
  • Wine Trail  and many Special Packages, we ask that you take full responsibility for your reservation and tickets.
