Not sure how you cannot like this place. I've stayed in each room; every minute and dollar was well spent. The staff kicks booty and when you leave you can call them family. It's nice to know I have a bed in my hometown to go to when I come in from Houston.

My wife & I spent a night here in May and our stay was first class. The home that houses the B&B is over 100 years old but was in excellent condition & spotless. We were welcomed by the manager and even given a bottle of wine since we had not gone to the store yet. The breakfast the next... More

We needed a location for my daughter's prom pictures and she wanted something "out of the ordinary". She suggested "The Caldwell" and it was perfect! From the time we arrived we were treated like royalty. Carolyn, the manager, had amazing photo ideas and did everything she could to accommodate us. She even went as far as moving furniture, plants, rugs,... More

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
