“For a stress free wedding call the Caldwell House.”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

My daughter was recently married at the Caldwell House in November of 2012. The Brides side of the family was from North Louisiana and we rented rooms at the Caldwell and found luxurious accommodations with excellent staff and gourmet breakfasts. We became sold on the Caldwell after attending a Bridal fair there in the Spring of 2012. Their secret ingredient seems to be a built in wedding planner, although they don't call themselves that. Since the mother of the bride was from North Louisiana while the bride was in South Louisiana, having a wedding coordinator looking into all of those little details was a huge stress relief for all concerned. All of the vendors we used for food, cake, music, bar, flowers and photography go through a trial to become accepted vendors used at the Caldwell. It was reassuring to know that the cake would be their on time, the D.J. would have the right music, the photographer was not known to be a no-show, and that the live flowers would be alive. The food and bar service were top notch. I could not recommend them more highly. Sincerely, Pam Gates ( Mother of the Bride)

Room Tip: Everyone enjoyed their stay. All rooms were luxurious. We rented the entire house. The fancy white r...

My son recently got married at The Caldwell and had his reception there. This was by far a most wonderful venue for such an ocassion. The staff was wonderful, the house and grounds were top notched and I can't begin to say enough of Mae. She handled everything with the utmost care to details. I was so very pleased that my son and daughter-in-law picked this place to have their wedding. I would highly recommend The Caldwell to anyone looking for a place for an event or just a stay!

Caldwel is an exciting bed and breakfast hub to the city. Everyroom tells a story with its decor.To the south of the house you have old abbeville with restaurants that I often walk to relive that old down town feel. If you plan it out you can cut through some of the old cemeteries which are beautiful. To the north you have the bypass with all the conviniences you may need. To the east of the house, along the wrap around porch, you will find a " hidden swing" in case you just want to sip and escape from the world of work. To the west, you will find the most inviting porch where I am sitting drinking a cup of fresh brew and writing this review.

This was our second visit to the Caldwell but a first for my sister-in-law. We were in Louisiana to celebrate a 60th birthday and could not resist spending a night at this wonderful B&B. We were warmly greeted by Miss Carolyn and made to feel right at home. We were the only guests that evening and with the place to ourselves we settled right in enjoying drinks on the beautiful porch with the fans casting a gentle breeze. We're from Canada so delighted in the very warm temperatures and since we were on vacation enjoyed slowing down to enjoy our surroundings. We were close enough to walk downtown to Dupuy's for an excellent dinner and strolled back to the Caldwell just as the sun was setting. The next morning we woke the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen and a scrumptious breakfast prepared by Miss Tammy. We highly recommend this charming and warm B&B where you can just sit back and enjoy.

My husband and I reserved a room at The Caldwell House for a long weekend getaway. The grounds were picturesque and the accomodations exceeded our expectations. The house was amazing, rich with architecture and history. And the staff went above and beyond to create a warm, and hospitable stay. The customer service was most noteworthy. Although we were in Abbeville visiting friends, we have already talked about returning to Abbeville solely for the opportunity to stay at The Caldwell House again. I would recommend this B&B to a couple looking for a getaway or a family. It was wonderful!

The only reason I gave 5 stars to The Caldwell is because they don't have 6 stars! We were in Abbeville for some weekend birthday activities hosted here & from the time we checked in on Friday until we left on Sunday, the experience at The Caldwell was nothing short of amazing! Party accommodations for 80-125 people on a Sat eve? Not a problem, the accommodations for outside catering & musicians ran smooth as silk! The covered & protected atrium outside handled the main stage perfectly when the evening turned a little "blustery". The rest of the time (Fri, Sat morn & Sun) we were able to enjoy "The Caldwell Experience". If you are a morning person, the east side of the grounds has a sitting area to "wake up" in & enjoy your morning coffee as you prepare for one of the best breakfast dining pleasures you will ever have. I don't know what YOU will have in the mornings, but based on our experiences, you will be more than pleased!! With the wrap around front & side porch and the beautiful grounds, any time of the day is perfect for relaxation. Mae, Carolyn and all of the staff are superb & you instantly feel like part of the family! A BIG Thank You to The Caldwell and all the staff for one of the best "get away" weekends we have ever had! We will be back! Preston & Marsha
