Meet Your Candlebay Inn Innkeepers

We are a charming, dog-friendly bed and breakfast within walking distance of many outlet stores and restaurants located in the village of Freeport, Maine. At Candlebay Inn, we offer all of our guests a homelike experience with personalized attention and approachability. Wake up each morning and be greeted by a hearty and homemade breakfast to start your day.

Purchased in 2014, this inn represents a lifelong dream of mine. In my former life, I was responsible for running the operations of two very busy veterinary specialists’ offices, which is why it was so important to me to keep the inn pet friendly. We are one of just a few accommodations in the Freeport area to allow your family dog to stay with you.

Our staff is small, consisting of myself, my daughter Stephanie and my granddaughter, who helps us out when she is not in school.  Stephanie is our kitchen manager and is a phenomenal pastry chef, sometimes whipping up some amazing confections for breakfast and throughout the day. She has managed and worked in restaurants before moving to Maine.  One of her popular dishes is a delectable hash brown quiche! (

We are happy to try to accommodate dietary restrictions, so please let us know of these when you book your reservations so that we can plan ahead.

We look forward to welcoming you to the new Candlebay Inn.

While you will see pictures of our Shetland Sheepdogs “Liam”, “Gideon” and “Miss Mollie”, you may never see them. Our dogs do not roam through the B&B, they reside in the owner’s residence. Should you like to meet them, just ask and we would be happy to bring them out!
