My sister from Texas, aunt from New Orleans, and myself from Florida met each other here to visit relatives in the area. Carolyn, the hostess, made us feel more at home than actually staying with our own kin. If traveling in the Abbeville area, you will not want to stay anywhere else - we look forward to staying here again...

The Caldwell House was very welcoming and was absolutely beautiful. I rented the bridal dressing room for me and my bridal party to use before my wedding. The staff were very polite and checked on us often to make sure we were not missing anything. I could not have asked for anything better! I was so excited to spend time...

I was in town for a four day trial at the Abbeville Courthouse. The Caldwell is the perfect location, less than two blocks from the courthouse. The Caldwell provided us with more than any hotel: a quiet place to work, spacious and comfortable rooms, home made breakfast that would rival any gourmet meal prepared by the best restaurants, and a...

We had a great experience at The Caldwell. I grew up in Abbeville. I'm so happy there is such a great place to stay now. The entire house was immaculate and welcoming. Mae was so nice and accomodating. The grounds were lovely, even in December. The breakfast was AMAZING!! I cannot wait to visit there again!!!

I was lucky enough to get an extensive tour of the Caldwell house while home visiting family recently. Although I have not stayed there.......YET, I do have a few first impressions I'd like to share. I have been in the hospitality business for over 15 years.....everything from 5 star hotels to 10 room B&B's and I have to say that...

The two nights at The Caldwell was the highlight of my trip to Abbeville. The accomodations, the service, the ambiance were something I will always remember. The Caldwell is a must stay for anyone visiting Abbeville. Mae the Manager is the best.

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...

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...
