“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2009

I am from Abbeville, and my family and I were in town for my 50th Birthday. Our 3 sons, daughter in law and granddaughter stayed at my mother's home and my husband and I stayed at The Caldwell. It was one of the BEST experiences of our lives. Mae was so very welcoming and The Caldwell was warm and inviting. The grounds were beautiful and Mae's Breakfasts were AMAZING! We have never stayed in a B&B before and I just don't think this stay can ever be topped-a true BLESSING! Thank you Mae.

We went to The Caldwell as a 60th
birthday celebration and we were not
disappointed by the way we were treated. We were made to feel as if we were home. The service and breakfast were the best. The only negative, and room for improvement, was the large stack of chairs, which are used for parties, stored in the corner of our room.

My wife and I held our wedding reception at the Caldwell, and our expectations were far exceeded! All of my wife's wants and needs as the bride-to-be were met, even surpassed. Mae Mayeux, the manager and event consultant, worked tremendously hard to make our special day everything that we wished it to be, and more. We found her to be incredibly helpful and accommodating. She was a very competent and efficient coordinator for a group of over 200 guests from 13 different states! The staff was very professional and inviting. The wait staff was wonderful, and made certain that our guests enjoyed themselves almost as much as we did. They treated every guest as if they were part of the wedding party. The bar service was spectacular. Dana Noel did an amazing job taking candid wedding shots and organizing our photo guest book.

The grounds were spectacularly manicured, and the decor was timeless. The backyard was tented so that our guests were not affected by the spring rain in Louisiana. The honeymoon suite was beautifully decorated, and prepared impeccably for our relaxation and enjoyment. If you are looking for a location for a special event in Abbeville, we highly recommend The Caldwell.

At The Caldwell House, your every need is attended to with comfort and ease by Mae and her competent staff. This is truly a gentle gem in Cajun Louisiana. There is personalized service in a grand old home that has been renovated to a beautiful B&B with a seasonal garden. Ideal for family reunions, weddings and intimate get aways. It is elegent, yet warm with delicious breakfasts! It is worth the trip to Abbeville just to stay at The Caldwell! I look forward to an excuse to return to Louisiana and The Caldwell.

There aren't enough kind word to describe The Caldwell and the manager, Mae. The house is lovely, and the rooms are spacious, beautifuly decorated, and immaculate. Mae was most welcoming, and made us feel right at home. I stayed with an infant, and although The Caldwell is not set up for infants, Mae was very helpful and willing to work with us. Our stay could not have been better. Stellar experience all around.
