Hello and welcome to the Candlelight Inn in Red Wing, MN where you are heartily invited to partake of the warmth and beauty of an 1877 Victorian Home. Here we delight in sharing our personal quality of hospitality to create for you a restful and memorable getaway!
We are David and Eve Baer, your eager and accommodating Innkeepers, whose dream of caring for a charming Inn and welcoming guests into our home became a reality in July 2018.
The Candlelight Inn has been a B&B since 1989 and we endeavor to continue the gracious reception that was shown to the many guests that have entered these doors throughout the past years.
We also take great care in preserving the pleasurable experience of a three-course, sweet or savory, breakfast that has been part of this grand house’s history. Our first course might be a Raspberry Shrub that is meant to cleanse one’s palate or a warm Apple-Pear Soup that has been described by one of our guests as “a warm hug”. The second-course might be our popular Wild Rice & Bacon Quiche with a homemade flakey crust or a Blueberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast topped with a blueberry sauce. A petite dessert tops off this ample breakfast – Pot de Creme with fresh whipped cream, or a Vanilla Panna Cotta served with blackberries soaked in a wine sauce. Our desire is that you leave the breakfast table pleasantly filled with delicious food and gratifying conversation.
As you drive up to the three-story white victorian home take note that it is a short walking distance to the historic downtown area of Red Wing where an array of distinctive restaurants, shops, historic places and parks await your visit while you R&R at the Candlelight Inn.
Once inside, take in the elegance and tranquility that emanates from the period lighting, the intricate original woodwork and beautiful stained glass windows. Refreshments are laid out of crackers, cheese and wine to invite you to unwind while the quiet of the library or the rich hues of the parlor beckon you to settle in and feel at home.
Each of the five guest bedrooms are designed for comfort, rest and beauty. Take a book from the library and settle in your room and notice the quietness of the house or climb into your comfortable bed for a tranquil nap. Some of our rooms have whirlpool tubs for a long relaxing soak; our handmade soaps and bath salts add a special touch of elegance.
Whether you come to Red Wing, MN for the many attractions and activities that this appealing town has to offer or to take in the surrounding natural beauty while wanting a time of respite, the Candlelight Inn is a most excellent choice for a remarkable and memorable getaway!
We look forward to your visit!
David and Eve Baer
