“Outstanding getaway”
Reviewed November 18, 2009

This magnificent B&B is very comfortable and service oriented (they let us pick satsumas and Meyer lemons from their trees). Our room was large, well appointed and not cluttered.
The breakfast was extraordinarily good and even featured sugar-free preserves (hard to find at run-of-the-mill places).

Nestled in the heart of an enchanting little town, this B&B manages to combine unparalleled luxury with good, old fashioned Southern charm to create the ideal experience. We arrived after dark and were immediately transported by a fairy-tale atmosphere of lush landscaping, twinkling lights, gas lanterns and elegant statuary. The Caldwell has been lovingly maintained with many original details and features, such as elaborate pressed tin ceilings, light fixtures and hardwood flooring. The interior is magnificently appointed with cozy nooks and seating throughout, making one feel completely at home to relax and soak in the airy and inviting atmosphere. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated with an artful mix of antiquity and modern, the result of which is pure luxury and comfort. Every traveler's needs have been considered with bountiful amenities and unique touches. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and attentive and each breakfast was a creative culinary delight incorporating locally produced ingredients - many of which I just had to purchase to bring home and use in my own kitchen. The surrounding town of Abbeville is ideal for a leisurely walk and offers a superb selection of enticing shops, boutiques and restaurants. Whether it is having breakfast in the graceful dining room, relaxing on the grand veranda with a cup of coffee, strolling the delightful gardens or sleeping in the most comfortable of beds - from start to finish The Caldwell House offers a memorable and captivating experience.

House is beautiful, rooms are spacious and very clean. Mae is a wonderful hostess and has spoiled us twice now. Coffee on the porch in the morning and wine on the porch in the evening, very peaceful.

My wife and I stayed at the Caldwell for our 10th Anniversary. The house is very beautiful and comfortable. Mae and Carolyn were absolutely wonderful Hostesses. Mae spent a lot of time sharing history of the house and the Abbeville area, very enthusiastically. The home is situated in the middle of town with quiet gardens to sit in. The upstairs balcony is a wonderful place to enjoy the early morning sounds while drinking a fresh brewed cup of coffee. The Breakfast's were WONDERFUL! Awesome Pecan Praline French Toast!! The rooms are very roomy and comfortable. I called ahead and had extras sitting in the room for our arrival to surprise my wife...also perfect. These ladies know how to take care of people and make them feel like family. We will be staying here again. The rooms are priced about the same as some of the name brand hotels. Thank you ladies for such a wonderful stay and the recipes.

We stayed a The Caldwell House due to a wedding we were attending...it was just for one night much to our regret....we would of liked to have stayed longer! We plan on going back to The Caldwell House...even it it's for a weekend getaway! The house was beautiful..loved our room"The Morning Glory Room". Mae the manager of the house was such a great hostess! She made us feel right at home! Her breakfast she prepared for us was simply divine! The owners of The Caldwell are lucky to have her to run and manage their place..She is doing a fabulous job!

After revewing the other hotels in Abbeville and seeing nothing that impressed me in the least, I decided to look for somthing a little different and came upon this B&B. Needless to say after looking at all the reviews and having spent the night, it was everything everyone said it was. One of my collegues had never stayed at a B&B and this was their first time and after meeting Mae and the wonderful accommodations, they are hooked on B&B's also.
If you have never been to a B&B, the is the place to start!

We had our wedding here in April. Once we saw the house, and met with the Mae, there was no other option. They were so "on point," no detail was missed. Mae thought about things that I had no clue about, and then she made them happen.

The day of the wedding the staff was hugely accomodating, (ie- I had a late bridesmaid that needed to shower) no questions asked, and it was done. Throughout the night, Mae would tell us when it was time for cake cutting, pictures, etc. based on what we had discussed prior to the wedding. I did not have to think about anything but my new husband and guests.

The Bridal suite/ honeymoon suite, AMAZING! I could go on for days about the attention to detail and accomodations....

I would reccomend The Caldwell anytime!
