Room Spotlight – Candlemaker’s Cottage

This week’s blog post – written by our Assistant Innkeeper, Abby Kutscher – shines the Room Spotlight on one of our Medieval Village Cottages, the Candlemaker’s Cottage.

Are you looking for an intimate getaway for two, or perhaps a place to spend some time alone? If you prefer a bit more seclusion than the castle provides, then the Candlemaker’s Cottage is the spot for you!

The recently renovated Candlemaker’s Cottage is a quaint and intimate accommodation located in the middle of the Medieval Village. Decorated in yellows and blues, the Candlemaker’s Cottage is the epitome of comfy country living.

The front door opens into the main room which contains the kitchenette and bedroom. The bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed and small velvet settee, and opens onto the master bathroom, outfitted with a luxurious whirlpool tub.


The kitchenette has a small kitchen table for two as well as the requisite mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee-maker. As with all of our castle suites and cottages, the Candlemaker’s contains a gas fireplace to provide that extra bit of coziness!

The front porch of the Candlemaker’s Cottage overlooks the Medieval Village gardens, which are abloom with irises, daffodils, and peonies in the spring. There is even a tree that grows in the middle of the porch itself, making for a unique architectural design! And of course, the porch does have a table and chairs so that guests can sit outside and enjoy the beauty of their surroundings.

So whether you are looking to spend some time cozied up next to a loved one or just want to escape on your own for a weekend, the Candlemaker’s Cottage provides the perfect atmosphere of comfort and quaintness. Check it out the next time you visit Ravenwood Castle and see for yourself!
