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. The mansion at 303 Berkeley Place has been historically known as the Catlett House; named for its first occupants. “The Catlett House” is considered “Staunton’s best example of the Shingle Style of architecture. Although there are elements of Queen Anne and turn-of-the-century classicism, its serene and well-proportioned design exhibits most of the characteristics of the Shingle Style – strong overall horizontality, stone foundation and first floor, patterned shingles, grouped windows and dramatic roof line.” – Historic Staunton Foundation
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, seen on ABC affiliate WHSV TV and heard on National Public Radio. 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.
Staunton is the perfect base from which to explore Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The city’s charming downtown is home to a vibrant arts and music scene, a sizzling reputation for local food and dining, and a cool array of independent shops and galleries clustered along the historic Main Street. After you’ve had your fill of outdoor adventure and scenic drives, enjoy a fun-filled night of theater at the American Shakespeare Center, step back in time at the Frontier Culture Museum, or explore the legacy of Woodrow Wilson at his presidential library and museum. Staunton delivers big time culture and small town cool – year round.
