We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Caldwell House, and everything was better than we could imagine. My bridal party got ready in the upstairs suite, and my husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite after. From our first meeting with Ms. Carolyn to days after the wedding, we were so happy with the venue and...

The Campbell House hosted my daughter's wedding, and did a marvelous job. The staff was incredible. The Campbell Cottage was a convenient place for us to stay for the night. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast location.

The Caldwell House was privileged to host the Sonnier-Russo wedding! Our spacious B&B, as well as The Caldwell Cottage, makes any event a "destination wedding" when family and friends choose to stay on the property before, during and after the festivities! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Caldwell.

This place is incredible!! The manager, Carolyn, is a terrific person. She makes you feel at home. The Caldwell is very clean, the room (Morning Gory) is very nice. The bedding is comfortable. I would highly recommend The Caldwell to everyone.

Not sure how you cannot like this place. I've stayed in each room; every minute and dollar was well spent. The staff kicks booty and when you leave you can call them family. It's nice to know I have a bed in my hometown to go to when I come in from Houston.

My wife & I spent a night here in May and our stay was first class. The home that houses the B&B is over 100 years old but was in excellent condition & spotless. We were welcomed by the manager and even given a bottle of wine since we had not gone to the store yet. The breakfast the next...

We needed a location for my daughter's prom pictures and she wanted something "out of the ordinary". She suggested "The Caldwell" and it was perfect! From the time we arrived we were treated like royalty. Carolyn, the manager, had amazing photo ideas and did everything she could to accommodate us. She even went as far as moving furniture, plants, rugs,...

I have lived in the Caldwell House in downtown Abbeville for more than 2 months, so I got to experience a lot what offers. First of all the house is amazing!

Great home, with trusting management that allowed us to stay on our own for night on our way through Cajun Country. Thanks to Skyla for making us a great breakfast. The Morning Glory room is very comfortable. Thanks too for keeping the Christmas decorations up for us to enjoy!
