We stayed here for our annual B& B Anniversary weekend. The home was absolutely beautiful and the staff were top-notch. We had a blustery, rainy day one of our days, but we had the whole house to ourselves, as luckily, the only scheduled guests. That day we had a relaxing time, sipping tea and coffee, reading by the fireplace, and...

We stayed at The Caldwell House for 2 nights as part of a holiday in Texas, Louisiana and Florida. We always use Tripadvisor when booking hotels and the hotels rarely let us down. We chose Abbeville as it was a good half way stop between Galveston and New Orleans. What a good choice! The little town is relaxing, friendly with...

My daughter's request during the wedding planning was to find a venue that could be used for bridal dressing and possible overnight stay the day/night of her wedding. The Caldwell house fullfilled this request and so much more. After touring the Caldwell house and visiting with May we decided to purchase the Bridal Accessory package as well as booking rooms...

We had close to a one month trial in Abbeville, La. The Caldwell House is a short walk from the courthouse. The case involved a great deal of witnessess and attorneys. The Caldwell House proved to be the ideal setting for us throughout the course of the trial. Not only were the staff wonderful, they also arranged for catering which...

What an awesome visit. We enjoyed a mini- family reunion coupled with wife's high school reunion. I do not think the staff of the Caldwell House could have been any more accommodating. They are absolutely amazing. The food was excellent. I was able to go anywhere on the first floor with my scooter. The handicap accommodations are excellent. I can't...

Our recent family stay at the Caldwell House in Abbeville La couldn't have been better! Both Mae and Carolyn met our every need and then some! Their southern hospitality was five star! The rooms were sparkling clean and filled with warmth and charm! We are already planning our return visit!

We rented the entire house for our family reunion/homecoming weekend. The house is very comfortable and the food was wonderful. It was the hospitality of the staff that made the weekend so enjoyable. They treated us like family. We are planning to return next year.

My husband and I recently were married at the Caldwell in the east garden. We had a small ceremony with family and a couple of friends around 27 people total. We decided to have a more intimate setting after the ceremony with a sit-down dinner instead of a reception with a band or D.J. Mae (the event planner) took care...
