The Place to Be 

Caldwell 1908

The Caldwell House, built in 1907, still bears the tradition of being "the place to be". From those early years through today, families and friends have enjoyed quiet conversation in its generous parlor, dining in its elegant dining room and relaxing on its deep porches.

Today, over one hundred years after it was built, people are amazed at its beauty, history and original features such as the tin ceilings, wood floors and pocket doors to name a few.   



Family whole house rentals at The Caldwell House have become very popular in recent years. When planning your next event in Abbeville, whether a wedding, family reunion or class reunion, consider renting the entire home for a memorable experience for all.  (Read below for more information.) 


A Perfect Place to Stay    

Family Gathering 

Family and friends coming to Abbeville to attend a wedding or family reunion have found The Caldwell House to be a perfect place to stay. Quite often, the entire home is rented by a family so that they can enjoy being together to share the wedding fun in private lodging which they don't have to share with strangers. Our staff is there to assist them with anything they may need as well as serve a hot gourmet breakfast each morning.  


The Caldwell's five oversized bedrooms, each with private baths, provide comfort and luxury guests will appreciate. Most rooms are double occupancy, but the Fleur de Lis bedroom has a daybed to accommodate a family traveling with a child. The dining room offers ample space for meals, and the deep porches overlooking the gardens and pavilion offer a relaxing space to enjoy with friends. 


Whether a wedding and reception is held at The Caldwell or at a nearby church or hall, The Caldwell's various packages add a unique opportunity to complete a wedding package.  Family and friends can stay in our large bedrooms, the bride and her party can dress in the Bridal Dressing Room, and the bride & groom can enjoy their honeymoon night in the Evangeline Master Suite.  After a long and exciting, but tiring day, our guests often tell us how glad they were that they did not have to drive very far to rest for the night.  Breakfasts served at The Caldwell House the next morning often last for hours with all the guests eating together, sharing memories of the wedding and reception, and lingering as long as possible before saying goodbye and departing for home.
