Brief History Of Candle Light Farms Inn

Jessica and Carl Dunham, Sr. acquired the Farm in 1941. During that time, there was no electricity on the
mountain, and their lighting was made possible by none candlelight (hence, the name). The owner’s son, Carl
Dunham, Jr. has committed his life to creating a vision for this estate — a beautiful place where guests can have
absolute tranquility, spirituality, and well-being. He pictured the Farm to be a place that promotes a peaceful
atmosphere. His efforts ultimately paid off. Today, Candle Light Farms Inn is regarded as one of the most
picturesque locations in Western Connecticut.

experience. Candle Light Farms Inn ensures you will have someone to be with you onsite on your wedding day.
Since this property offers exclusivity, you can enjoy full access to this Connecticut wedding venue for your
