Grants Pass, Oregon
Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

Charming, comfortable lodging in a house built in 1907. Rates are fair. A few things missing...soap and such. Nice coffee maker (Keurig I believe) but cups hard to find as well as the small coffee packs. Nearly a five star with correctable problems.

Kathleen, there's no review that can match the compliment of repeat visits! It's heart-warming when an Abbeville native can consider The Caldwell a "home base" when you come "back home"! See you next year!

We stayed at The Caldwell House December 30th-31st. The house was decorated beautifully for the holidays and was perfect for our romantic night away. We stayed in the Evangeline room; I highly recommend this room. It is spacious, has a king size bed, fireplace, shower, and Jacuzzi tub. While there was one other couple staying long-term upstairs, we felt like...

We recently had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Caldwell House, and everything was better than we could imagine. My bridal party got ready in the upstairs suite, and my husband and I stayed in the honeymoon suite after. From our first meeting with Ms. Carolyn to days after the wedding, we were so happy with the venue and...

The Campbell House hosted my daughter's wedding, and did a marvelous job. The staff was incredible. The Campbell Cottage was a convenient place for us to stay for the night. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast location.

The Caldwell House was privileged to host the Sonnier-Russo wedding! Our spacious B&B, as well as The Caldwell Cottage, makes any event a "destination wedding" when family and friends choose to stay on the property before, during and after the festivities! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Caldwell.

This place is incredible!! The manager, Carolyn, is a terrific person. She makes you feel at home. The Caldwell is very clean, the room (Morning Gory) is very nice. The bedding is comfortable. I would highly recommend The Caldwell to everyone.

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.
