We chose the Caldwell House for our daughter's wedding reception. From beginning to end, everything was perfect! Some of our out-of-town guests stayed in the upstairs bedrooms and they raved about the service and accommodations. The house and grounds are beautiful! So many places for great pictures. I cannot speak highly enough about the house manager, Carolyn. She is so... More

We stayed in the Garden View room it was very nice and comfy, The house is very clean and has an airy feel to it. No old musty smells. When I booked only two rooms were available but there was only 3 other guests travelling together. The master suite is very nice and very romantic perfect for an anniversary. If... More

I'm a New Jersey-born "yankee" myself, but fell in love with Louisiana culture, food, music and people over ten years ago! So glad you were able to experience both the excitement of New Orleans and our Cajun hospitality in Vermilion Parish. More

We went to Caldwell House as part of a first trip to Louisiana with a friend who is originally from Lafayette. The house itself is big, beautiful and each room is decorated uniquely with its own personality. I enjoying waking up to the smell of breakfast cooking and each breakfast served was freshly prepared and beautifully served. Linens were lovely... More

No other place would have been as special for our youngest daughter's wedding reception. From the moment we entered for the pre-wedding festivities to the minute we left after a wonderful evening... words can not describe our experience. 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
