The Caldwell House has an excellent location and is only a short walk from several great restaurants such as Blacks and Dupuis. However, the rooms, while quaint, needed renovations and perhaps a few upgrades. The bathroom had a tub but no shower curtain so the water tended to splash onto the floor. The fixtures needed replacement as did the tiles.
Breakfast was a disappointment. The meal consisted of bacon, eggs, and potatoes. Having been in hundreds of B/Bs, I fully expected fruit, toast with jelly, and a variety of teas to accompany the main courses. Such was not the case.
Value is also an issue. Though we enjoyed our stay and had a wonderful conversation with the housekeeper, the overall experience was pricey.

Dear Guest, while the overwhelming majority of our guests rate The Caldwell House high for experience and value, we take it seriously whenever we fall short of any guest's expectations. We regret that hostess may not have offered your choice of tea, toast or fruit; we also realize that staff was in the process of installing new shower curtain liners during your stay. We sincerely hope that you will visit again and enjoy the full guest experience at The Caldwell House.

We stayed two nights and had to leave too early in the morning to have our second breakfast We were traveling to Austin. We enjoyed dinner in Abbeville. Felt like we were in a small town especially as we drove around in the area. Went to Avery Island to visit the Tabasco plant and also the Jefferson House. The breakfast that was served was creative and plentiful.

Great weekend getaway

There was a wedding reception for a local couple scheduled the night of our first night's stay. The family of the bride invited us to join them and we had a great time. Saturday it rained all day and we all sat out on the front porch and read books visited, and just had a very relaxing day. The local restaraunts were amazing.
Takes you back to another time.

This is a like finding a diamond in the rough. The rooms are hugh and our bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was nothing special (there were only 2 of us there), but the hospitality was fantastic. The house was already decorated for Christmas and every room (reception rooms, bedrooms and dining room) had decorations and a tree in it. The furniture, decor, lighting fixtures were all antiques and transported one to another less hectic time. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
Lavish home setting in Abbeville!

The review website won't let me enter OUTSTANDING, so I want to be clear that the rooms really are OUTSTANDING. My sisters & I felt that we were being welcomed into a lavish family home. Beds are super comfortable & Gretchen prepared a fantastic breakfast for us. Thank you!
Eloquent B&B in beautiful Louisiana.

My wife and I were in town for a wedding. We were made to feel at home in this beautiful B&B.

Thank you, Carolyn. It was a joy meeting you. Our breakfast conversations were a highlight of our Southern journey, and learning about the area from your personal stories was so valuable.
Thanks for baking the pecan French toast too :))

Love the Caldwell House

My husband and I recently spent two nights at The Caldwell House in the Fleur de Lies room. We had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast and were not quite sure what to expect. We absolutely loved it! Carolyn made us feel so welcome. Our room and bath were clean and comfortable, plenty of room. The breakfast both mornings was delicious and the dining room so pretty. When we left we felt like we had spent two days visiting in the home of an old friend! If you are anywhere near Abbeville, La we recommend staying at The Caldwell House.
A wonderfully unique place

The Caldwell House is delightful, and Carolyn is a great hostess, whose knowledge of the area ensures an entertaining and educational time in this neck of the woods. And breakfast was more than excellent.
