Berkeley House Bed & Breakfast

Bonnie and Jeff moved in during November, 2013 and started renovations almost immediately. Their storied journey started in New Zealand and was highlighted in articles published by “The News Leader” newspaper twice, “Shenandoah Valley Living” Magazine (page 19), and heard on National Public Radio.

This magnificent Queen Anne is situated directly across the street from the birthplace of President Woodrow Wilson and was first occupied by R. H. Catlett and his family in 1896. Mr. Catlett worked at Virginia Military Institute for a number of years prior to the Civil War and was a close personal friend of Stonewall Jackson (a teacher at VMI). The Catlett family occupied the house for almost 77 years.

Because the proprietors, Bonnie and Jeff, painstakingly restored this grand old lady and turned her into on of Staunton’s best bed and breakfasts many historical details remain within its 8,000 square feet. The Berkeley House Bed & Breakfast is beautifully decorated for the period, but modern conveniences are available for your comfort. Reserve your room today.
