There was no electricity on the mountain in 1941 when Jessica and Carl Dunham signed the papers to purchase the property by candlelight…thus the name…Candlelight Farms.
This magnificent 640 acre property which surrounds Candlelight Farms Inn (1843) is located on top of Candlewood Mountain. The ponds, gardens, the gentle slopes of the property make it an idyllic setting. It relieves some of the stress of everyday life. Come for a taste of tranquility and relaxation. Make it about you.
Our private heliport makes this an easy getaway.
The organic veggie garden and the eggs from our free range chickens complete your experience with a farm fresh breakfast.
Candlelight supports our local bakeries, farms, and our town farmers market. We are proud members of the Nature Conservancy, the Northeast Organic Farming Association, and the Connecticut Farm Bureau.
