My husband and I stayed at the Caldwell one night with another couple from Austin. We so enjoyed having a drink on your porch and being able to walk to dinner. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The highlight was breakfast and getting to talk with Caroline. Wonderful person.
From the moment we arrived, the hospitality and care we received from Deborah who owns The Guest Room in Abbeville, LA was exceptional. She and I texted on my way to the home about some of my concerns and I felt an immediate rapport with her. When we arrived she was there with a flashlight. It is a lovely room with everything you could possibly need. The furnishings are comfortable and appropriate. There is a wonderful patio with beautiful plants. The bathroom is well appointed and comes stocked with bath salts Deborah makes herself. There was homemade quiche in the refrigerator with fresh fruit for our breakfast each morning of our stay and coffee, juice and water are provided. We had a lovely time staying at The Guest Room and would highly recommend it to anyone else making their way to this part of the country. Deborah will make sure you have plenty of recommendations on where to go and eat.
The place was very beautiful, quite, and very comfortable! The people that worked there were very helpful and generous offering to help in any way possible. They really made our stay worth while. The food provided along with the service in the morning was great and was punctual with the time frame given. If you are looking for an elegant, comfortable, and quiet place to stay I would totally recomend this place. My bride and I were very pleased with our choice to stay there.
Our family of five stayed in the cottage for a wedding in town. We were very comfortable and found the manager Carolyn to be welcoming and friendly! The cottage was attractive and well furnished especially the kitchen where we prepared our own meals and snacks. We would recommend this for an Abbeville getaway.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
My wife and I, along with some friends, stayed at the Caldwell House for our first visit in this area, and we couldn't have been happier with our selection. John and Dena were wonderful hosts, and we enjoyed out time together during the wonderful breakfasts. We enjoyed the other guests, too! Our room, the Moodna, was perfect for us. We had a small issue with the billing, but John took care of it quickly with no complaints. I cannot recommend highly enough the location, room, and hosts of the Caldwell House.
The Caldwell is situated in the neat town of Abbeville, La. It is a very pretty B&B and the staff was most accommodating. A few things could stand some updating, but considering the structure is 100+ years old, it is delightful. I would definitely plan to stay there again when I am in the area.
Four generations of our family, ranging in age from 2 to 83, had a great stay at The Caldwell House. Everything was wonderful, including breakfasts, hospitality and wonderful nearby restaurants. We highly recommend The Caldwell House!
This was our first time at a bed and breakfast. What an amazing experience it was! Caroline the inn keeper was absolutely amazing. The house was breath taking and immaculate.....Which is a biggie for me! It really felt like you were at home while there! The breakfast was top notch too. When we left the next morning we were sent away with warm hugs. We will definitely be making plans to stay at The Caldwell House again. Perfect B&B experience!
Our stay at The Caldwell was wonderful; the staff was very accommodating (Carolyn, etc.), the room was excellent, great location in town, food by Don's catering was most enjoyable. We highly recommend!
We stayed here for a century cycle race and their rooms are spacious, clean and charming in a delightful way! We started looking for other reasons to come back! The service was friendly and we truely felt like we were a guest in someone's home.
