The Caldwell House
Ranked #1 of 2 Abbeville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 March 2011

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 didn't even miss going outdoors. The food was delicious, and Mae and Carol made us feel very welcome and comfortable. When the weather finally cleared we enjoyed exploring the quaint town and beautiful old church in the town square.

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 enough to do and see on a 2 night visit without using the car (we were doing enough driving).

The Caldwell is charming with beautiful rooms and good bedlinen. The staff could not have been nicer. Our only complaint would be the breakfast. There was no choice and the portions were too large and heavy for us. It would not deter us from recommending this B&B but I do think that they should review the breakfasts. We do not expect a huge choice, this is not an hotel, but everything was put before us rather quickly, including the fruit (with cream!) to start with. The staff were so lovely that I feel bad about writing anything negative but as I rely on honest reviews on this website, that I have included this comment.

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 for our family to spend the night after the wedding. We arrived to the Caldwell house the afternoon of the wedding day and enjoyed the bridal dressing room for dressing and pictures. It was the perfect place to enjoy such special moments and provided a wonderful background for pre-wedding pictures! Before departing for the ceremony we enjoyed refreshments provided by the staff at the Caldwell. The reception was a short drive away and after the reception we returned to pristine rooms and cozy beds! My daughter and new son in law enjoyed the honeymoon suite on the first floor which was included in the Bridal package and the rest of my family retired to one of a kind rooms with excellent bathrooms on the second floor. The next morning we all enjoyed coffee and a delicious breakfast in the dining room. As we enjoyed breakfast we told stories and shared memories about the wonderful night . Before departing the Caldwell we took a few pictures to capture our last moments of such a wonderful event! Mae and Carolyn were superior hostesses! Thanks to the Caldwell for allowing us to make such beautiful and lifelong memories!

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 was just great. The staff even took care of our laundry needs. In other words, they took care of every detail so that we could concentrate on our case. It was one of the best decisions we made in the handling of the case in staying at the Caldwell House. The rooms are wonderful, the setting terrific, and the staff took great care of all of us.

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 wait to enjoy my next stay there which can't come soon enough.

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.
