Our Guests

  • "We went to Caldwell House as part of a first trip to Louisiana with a friend who is originally from Lafayette. The house itself is big, beautiful and each room is decorated uniquely with its own personality. I enjoyed waking up to the smell of breakfast cooking and each breakfast served was freshly prepared and beautifully served. Linens were lovely and towels and bathrobe plush, high quality! Carolyn who is the house manager was a delightful hostess and shared a lot of local history with us. Carolyn is a special lady who is a big part of the experience of staying at the Caldwell, we had lots of great conversation and big laughs around the table! Many happy memories at a beautiful home with a warm staff, I would definitely give it 5 stars and return again!"

  • Best of Louisiana Southern Hospitality - We were able to stay at the Caldwell recently and were very pleased with the House and Carolyn our hostess. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome. But the best was her breakfast. My two friends and I were traveling around southern Louisiana judging cities for Louisiana's Cleanest City Contest. The Caldwell is a keeper!!

  • Magnificent House, Fantastic Staff! - We chose The Caldwell 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.

  • "The Caldwell House was more than perfect, it was a dream from the moment we walked in! It was not only elegant and beautiful, but welcome and comfortable all at the same time. We had our three month old twin boys baptism reception there...which was an elegant picture perfect venue (with delicious catering by Don's Custom Catering). Myself and my family, eleven in all...grandma, parents, teens, children, babies...also stayed there as guests and LOVED it. It was incredibly comfortable with just the right availability of privacy when wanted and visiting space too. The breakfasts were AMAZING!!!!! Although we were all on vacation, no one complained about rising early...because we all awoke to the delicious aromas calling us into the dining room! Even our two teenagers popped out of bed earlier than the adults to the smell of the BEST gourmet breakfasts I've ever had the pleasure to dine on."

  • "No other place would have been as special for our youngest daughter's wedding reception. From the moment we entered for the pre-wedding festivities to the minute we left after a wonderful evening... words can not describe our experience. The house is gorgeous, the staff beyond belief in hospitality and the reception perfect! The food was fantastic and the serving staff of both the food as well as the bar were exceptional. Mark, Darlene, and Carolyn were so welcoming and accommodated our every need. The spacious room on the second floor was a perfect place for the bridal party and mother-of-the bride to share special memories as we prepared for the wedding. Each time we pass by the Caldwell, only great memories will come to mind of the special evening we spent together celebrating a special milestone in our daughter's life."
