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!

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 :)) Tom and Nancy Bash

Love the Caldwell House

5 on July 14, 2014

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

Comfortable rooms, and my family felt very much at home at The Caldwell. Breakfast was good, and we enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and wandering around the grounds.
