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.

"Rooms facing the street get the morning sun."
"We stayed in the single main floor room. We heard a few creaks from upstairs, but nothing serious, and the convenience was nice."
"Very little difference in rooms. I think the price depends on the location within the house."
"All rooms looked beautiful and comfortable."
"Again, this is an experience, not just a room for the night. Come prepared for a quiet, relaxed high end B&B time"
