The Caldwell House
Ranked #1 of 2 Abbeville B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 August 2013

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 and character. Can't wait to stay there again the next time I'm in La!

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 could not have been more pleased. It was also a great value compared to renting several traditional hotel rooms that would not have included the splendor of this great place. A real jewel in the heart of historic downtown Abbeville. Highly recommended! Paul Moresi III

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 on the large porch every morning- with a beautiful view of the magnolias and ferns ,.then ate ourselves silly on Carolyn's fabulous breakfasts. Can hardly wait to go back!!

Room Tip: They are all exceptional!

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 for the Big Easy. We can't imagine a better place to stay in Abbeville, or the entire State of Louisiana. If you're looking for seafood, Dupuy's and Shucks we're outstanding!!! Be sure to sample all the oysters. When we return,Carolyn has asked that we bring her a box of Round Rock donuts from Texas.

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 stay at the Caldwell House was unforgettable.

Room Tip: Only one room has a king size bed. The others have queen size beds.

We had the honour of staying at this beautiful hotel in March of this year.
Our son was getting married to a lovely lady from Abbeville and they chose the Caldwell House hotel as the venue for their marriage. Seven Brits decended upon this hotel and from the minute we arrived to be greeted by Mae and Carolyn, our stay was luxury itself. The bedrooms are marvellous, very in keeping with the style of the Old Colonial House. Carolyn, the Manager....what a lovely lady...could not have been more helpful having a lovely hot breakfast ready for our party each morning. The Hotel offers bed and breakfast only but there are a number of restaurants to eat in Abbeville, Dupreys being one which we can thoroughly recommend. With our side of the family residing in England, the wedding planning was handled mainly by the brides family but with the excellent help of Mae the wedding planner. The wedding was beautiful and we couldn't have done it without Maes help who was there throughout the wedding in case she was needed. My sons wedding ceremony was held outside although in case of bad weather the Caldwell House has a beautiful interior.There is also a lovely hairdressers across the road which also offers a make up service, this we can highly recommend! A marvellous venue for a wedding with plenty of Louisiana hospitality!
