Inspiring Excellence: Our Journey to Select Registry

The Gold Standard. Five-star. Simply, the best. No matter how you riddle it, every business owner wants to be at the top of the food chain in their industry. That’s why our Cape Cod bed and breakfast had its eyes set on being a Select Registry member from the start. It’s with great honor that we have been a member since fall 2016. Being a part of this distinguished group of the most exclusive inns, bed and breakfasts, and boutique hotels has allowed us to constantly improve our property and enhance the guest experience. Our membership with Select Registry has impacted every aspect of our inn right down to the bed sheets and bathroom amenities. Staying at a Select Registry property is the best way to guarantee an unparalleled lodging experience. Experience top-tier New England lodging when you book a stay with us!

Candleberry Inn and Select Registry

Lets Set the Scene

We traveled across the U.S. for years staying in various bed and breakfasts before becoming innkeepers. With our joint travel experience and business knowledge, we knew that being a Select Registry property was the cornerstone to ensuring the best guest experience. After all, it takes a traveler to know a traveler.

So, when we purchased Candleberry Inn, we knew we needed to meet Select Registry members to tap into its full potential. With our combined knowledge of classical design, traditional restoration, global finance, and operations we knew we could take this historic Cape Cod bed and breakfast to the next level of luxury.

How We Scored

We first spoke to Select Registry representatives at the Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals (AIHP) conference shortly after we purchased Candleberry Inn. We had already planted the seed that we wanted to be a Select Registry property, and speaking with the organization was the water that helped the seed sprout.

The process to become a Select Registry property is similar to taking a test. Except, in the past, you didn’t know when the test was. Per SR’s strategy, an anonymous organization member booked a stay with us and came bearing all the trappings of a regular guest. We greeted them, showed them to their luxurious guest room, informed them of the amenities, served them breakfast, gave local recommendations, and more.

After their stay, we received the news. We received a very high score on the first review. We were, and still are, thrilled that Select Registry regarded our inn so highly. The score wasn’t perfect, but it was pretty close. After the review, we went ahead and made all the improvements that Select Registry suggested. We added eco-friendly, glass bottles filled with fresh Brewster water in each room and invested in top-of-the-line bathroom amenities like Malin + Goetz cosmetics.

Experience Excellence at Candleberry Inn

We are confident that the changes we made paired with our passion for curating an unforgettable guest experience has transformed our inn. We are one of only 17 Select Registry approved properties in Cape Cod. That’s not a distinguishment we take lightly.
