The house is gorgeous, the staff beyond belief in hospitality and the reception perfect! The food was fantastic and the serving staff... More

The Caldwell House was an awesome place for my wife and I to stay. She is from Abbeville, but there were too many family members already staying at her parents house. We stayed Friday and Saturday night. Our room was gorgeous. The bed was comfortable. My wife's sister and all of the bridesmaids were able to rent the room across... More

We were able to have drinks first and then leisurely... More

We had our three month old twin boys baptism reception there...which was an elegant picture perfect venue (with delicious catering by Don's Custom Catering). Myself and my... More
