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 and "Shenandoah Valley Living" Magazine. 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.

I stayed a single night and was very comfortable. The room had access to the front porch, where I had coffee and bird watched. Delicious breakfast was served. Owners have taken all COVID precautions so I was able to relax completely. Highly recommend!

We were impressed at how thoroughly they were prepared for visitors in this age of the virus. They have closed several of their rooms to allow for social distancing at breakfast and Jeff the owner appeared to be continuously cleaning. The B&B is in a perfect location -- walking distance to restaurants and shops and has a fantastic porch (with free port and sherry offered). Breakfasts were terrific. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely stay at the Berkeley House. It is roomy, beautifully decorated with antiques of all kinds, sitting rooms, and large bedrooms. The breakfast was top notch. It is centrally located so it is simple to walk anywhere in the downtown area.

Wow.. This is an amazing Bed and Breakfast. Jeff and Bonnie are superb hosts. The house is stunning and so well done. The rooms are extremely comfortable. It is a fabulous location. I could walk anywhere I needed to go. I was without a vehicle during the day but that was not a problem. I'm used to having a selection for breakfast (Europe has spoiled me) and I do have some issues with food. I went prepared.. my husband can usually finish my breakfast well not this time. The food was delicious. Every single breakfast was fabulous. We were there for 3 nights and we loved it. Without a doubt this is the nicest Bed and Breakfast we ever stayed in and there have been a lot. We always use this in our domestic and international travel. If you have an opportunity to stay here, please take it. Since we have family in the area, I know we will be back.

We stayed at the Berkeley House to celebrate our birthdays. Jeff and Bonnie were very hospitable, accommodating, and helpful. The home was beautifully decorated. The breakfasts and afternoon treats were delicious. The home is located in walking distance to various sites and restaurants. We highly recommend The Berkeley House for anyone vacationing Staunton Virginia.
