The Caldwell, with its tastefully classic décor, creates a special environment for special occasions…baby shower, rehearsal dinner, class reunion, anniversary celebration. But this house can also be “all-business” – we can host your business strategy meeting or house your law firm during a trial at the nearby Vermilion Parish courthouse.

Our Guests

  • 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.

  • “Such a beautiful, comfortable experience!” - We stayed at the Caldwell for almost a week, and had the most perfect restful, fun and luxurious experience! The room spaciousness and décor was top notch, very tasteful, the bed so very comfortable and the hospitality just the very best I've ever experienced. It was like visiting family in a beautiful, stately Victorian home.

  • "We visited the Caldwell House this past weekend as a short getaway from our busy daily lives. The Caldwell House was beautiful with fantastic staffing and delicious breakfast. We truly enjoyed ourselves."

    Ashley K.
  • "We needed a location for my daughter's prom pictures and she wanted something "out of the ordinary". She suggested "The Caldwell" and it was perfect! From the time we arrived we were treated like royalty. Carolyn, the manager, had amazing photo ideas and did everything she could to accommodate us. She even went as far as moving furniture, plants, rugs, you name it. It was a truly wonderful experience and the pictures came out great!"

    Joy T.
  • "We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our wedding. From the moment our family and friends arrived on Friday for the rehearsal, everyone was impressed. The house, garden, pavilion and curb-appeal are welcoming and gorgeous. My favorite part of this venue was that we had a "get-away" weekend while feeling so at home. Our parents stayed in the rooms upstairs, so we were able to have breakfast together, visit, laugh, cry, and reminisce. It was nice for our families to have a chance to come together."
