We visited the Caldwell House this past weekend as a short getaway from our busy daily lives. The Caldwell House was beautiful with fantastic staffing and delicious breakfast. We truly enjoyed ourselves.

The Caldwell House was more than perfect, it was a dream from the moment we walked in! It was not only elegant and beautiful, but welcome and comfortable all at the same time. We had our three month old twin boys baptism reception there...which was an elegant picture perfect venue (with delicious catering by Don's Custom Catering). Myself and my...

We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our wedding. From the moment our family and friends arrived on Friday for the rehearsal, everyone was impressed. The house, garden, pavilion and curb-appeal are welcoming and gorgeous. My favorite part of this venue was that we had a "get-away" weekend while feeling so at home. Our parents stayed in...

The Caldwell staff could not have made our reception any more amazing. The home was elegant and beautiful. The staff was extremely pleasant and was excellent in the organization of all the reception activities. They allowed for the family to visit with guests and enjoy the evening while they attended to all the details. I would highly recommend this anyone....

Stayed here last month for a baby shower, such a wonderful experience! Felt like I was visiting with family. The staff is so warm and friendly, and the food was amazing. Great location. Great venue for parties, big or small. Farmer's market around the corner on the weekend. Safe neighborhoods to run in. The rooms each have their own charm...

I worked with out-of-town lawyers on a two week jury trial in Abbeville in August 2013. The Caldwell and its staff could not have been better suited for the lawyers, witnesses and support staff. It was a great place to work and equally suited to relaxing when the schedule allowed. Carolyn and staff treated everyone like family, and our group...

We stayed at the Caldwell for almost a week, and had the most perfect restful, fun and luxurious experience! The room spaciousness and décor was top notch, very tasteful, the bed so very comfortable and the hospitality just the very best I've ever experienced. It was like visiting family in a beautiful, stately Victorian home. We had lazy morning coffees...

We had a wonderful two night stay at The Caldwell House!!! The seven of us ranged from 2 to 83 years young, and Carolyn could not have made us feel more welcome!!! The rooms were charming and the breakfasts were delicious. Luckily, no one was married on this trip, but another family was having a wedding the day we left...

We were able to stay at the Caldwell recently and was very pleased with the House and Carolyn our hostess. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome. But the best was her breakfast. My two friends and I were traveling around southern Louisiana judging cities for Louisiana's Cleanest City Contest. The Caldwell is a keeper!!

The Caldwell House is a lovely, gracious residence in a beautiful section of town. Breakfast is absolutely scrumptious. Miss Carolyn, the Manager, as well as Gretchen, made us feel so much at home, and suggested places to visit. The Caldwell House is within walking distance of Shuck's - a superb seafood restaurant. We spent 4 fabulous days in Abbeville. Our...
