In 1971, a group of local businessmen envisioned a grand, luxurious restaurant and hotel in a picturesque setting that was once an apple orchard. A Year later, that dream became a reality. A beautiful dining room with a glass wall overlooking the orchard, complete with cascading water fountain and sunken bar, were constructed along with a spacious, 25-room hotel. The view was impressive, the food was divine and the service was superb. However this was only the beginning.
In 1978 Architect Jerry Matthews finished his design of a breathtaking golf course that he has considered to be one of his best designs. The majestic pines and rolling hills that stood behind the orchard proved to be a hidden treasure for Candlestone’s beautiful fairways, lush greens and demanding obstacles.
