This is a great venue when we visit family in Abbeville. Great staff and wonderful location. Good walking area if you enjoy getting outside. The square around the church and courthouse is picture perfect.

Great place for a large family gathering -especially during the holidays!! Beautifully decorated, large rooms, each with its own private bathroom. Large, comfy outdoor areas. The kitchen and dining area made cooking and eating together easy and enjoyable. Carolyn was a great host.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. We had been here about 8 years ago and liked it then so we decided to return. We were in the Fleur de Lis room on the 2nd floor. It is nice and spacious. Caroline prepares wonderful breakfast and is so nice and friendly to talk to and offers ideas for things to see in the Area. We love raw oysters and there are 2 good places withing walking distance of the House. We highly recommend and will return again.

We're thinking fondly of all the guests whom we've been privileged to host before this temporary period of quarantine. Thank you so much for this generous review - we hope to be eating oysters in Abbeville soon!

The Caldwell House is exactly the place I was looking for when I planned my trip through Acadiana. I grew up in Louisiana but never ventured much west or south of New Orleans. so my trip west to Houston this time would be the very southern route. The Caldwell House in Abbeville is in farm land and swamp land. The hotel itself is on the edge of the historic district so I walked around downtown. The hotel itself is in the best of bed and breakfast traditions. The house has been restored and decorated in beautiful period pieces while providing comfort and modern amenities such as wifi. I ate breakfast in a fine dining room, praline french toast and fruit, including local oranges. Stay in Abbeville at the Caldwell to get a feel for fine Louisiana traditions.
