History

The story of Candlestone unfolds in 1971 when a group of local businessmen envisioned a grand, luxurious restaurant and hotel in a picturesque setting that was once an apple orchard. They could see a staff that was committed to providing top quality food and service to their potential customers. In 1972 the dream became a reality.

Restaurant

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 and service wonderful, but this was only the beginning…..

Golf

Candlestone’s golf course was opened in June of 1978 and designer Bruce Mathews considered Candlestone to be one of his best designs. The majestic pines and rolling hills that stood behind the orchard proved a hidden treasure of beautiful fairways, lush greens and challenging obstacles. Years later, Candlestone has become to be known as one of West Michigan’s toughest and most beautiful golf courses.

Today

With new ownership in the summer of 2008, came many changes to Candlestone. Bogies Bar and Grill was remodeled and began anew as Water Tower Grille. In 2019, we completely redesigned the concept of the restaurant and brought in the Smokehouse. We kept some of the guest favorites from before, and added the best smoked foods in West Michigan. Throughout the changes, we are still providing you with an enjoyable, casual atmosphere, and delicious, quality food with top-notch service.
