The SpaceChatswood is a cozy suburb on Auckland’s North Shore where we lived for quite some time. We still have many friends in Chatswood. This room is one of our five luxurious chambers/suites and has a bright and airy appeal and was perfect for our collection of rattan furniture. The en suite has a claw foot tub as well as a shower. If you are looking for a bed and breakfast in Staunton, VA — a stay in the Chatswood Chamber would be an excellent choice. See our website for details of our other rooms as well as details on discounts and promotions. 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.

Interaction with GuestsBonnie 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. We love our guests. You'll find us around the mansion most of the time whether we're in the kitchen cooking and baking, outside gardening, moving around the common areas (parlor, music room, dining room, foyers, TV room) making things more beautiful, or just lounging around in our 3rd floor apartment. You'll always see us at breakfast where we'll have as many as 10 guests sitting around our large dining room table enjoying a home cooked full breakfast. We won't be eating with you but we're sure you'll love the food and the company of other guests of Berkeley House Bed & Breakfast. We haven't had the opportunity to generate reviews yet on Airbnb but here's what our guests are saying so far: "Thanks so much for a wonderful stay. The food was amazing, the hosts were gracious & accommodating, and our room was beautiful, comfortable and luxurious. Thanks for making our stay in Staunton memorable!" Mallory & Eric Young - May 2015 "We had a perfect stay! The house is just gorgeous and restored beautifully. We kept noticing details that we hadn't noticed before. Bonnie and Jeff were so kind and hospitable. Breakfast was delicious and the sweet treats in the afternoon were delectable! We will definitely be staying here again the next time we are in Staunton!" Mike & Lisa from Tennessee - May 2015 "What a lovely stay! From the phone conversation at booking to delicious brownies upon arrival and the gorgeous, cozy room, everything has been just perfect. Thanks so much!" The Sutherlands, Texas - May 2015 "We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this weekend. We love their place – it's beautifully decorated, wonderful location, great breakfast!

The room was so comfortable and breakfast was delicious! We hope to be back soon!" Aaron & Nicole Butt - April 2015 "The Woodrow Wilson Suite gave us such amazing views with the large deck and urban/historical ambiance. Every day was a culinary delight. We would recommend your unique property to anyone. We thank you again for the perfect balance of conversation and privacy." Christian & Vanessa - April 2015 "The house is a lovely Queen Anne style house with a wrap around porch and a wrap around deck on the second floor with panoramic views of downtown Staunton. It is across the street from the Woodrow Wilson home and also right next to the Mary Baldwin campus. It is only a short walk from the American Shakespeare Center. In other words it could not be better located. However, it is on a quiet residential street, so there is not a lot of street noise to keep you up. Jeff and Bonnie have beautifully renovated the home and decorated the entire place. The room was well appointed and had a great bathroom. There were freshly made chocolate chip cookies in the afternoon when we arrived. The breakfast was fabulous, a Dutch baby pancake with bananas. They also had homemade blueberry muffins. We definitely be staying here again when we are down in Staunton." Melissa B. - March 2015 The NeighborhoodThere are many things to see and do in Staunton.

Other Things to NoteBerkeley House 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 The City tax rolls claim there was a structure on the property in 1896 but other books state it may have been in 1897. Richard Henry Catlett owned the property but didn’t have the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful mansion much, if at all, as he died March 21, 1898 of Bright’s disease. His obituary stated that he was one of Staunton’s most prominent businessmen – “He was born in Fauquier County seventy years ago, the son of Robert Catlett. For a while he was in business in Orange County, and then moved to Lexington, where he was treasurer of the Virginia Military Institute, and while here studied law under Judge Brockenborough. While in Lexington he was the intimate personal friend of Gen. Stonewall Jackson.” At the time he died, he was married to his second wife Fanny Bowling Gay Catlett, a descendent of Pocahontas. According to “Historic Houses of Staunton, Virginia,” R. H. Catlett “served on Virginia Governor Letcher’s staff when the Civil War began and then served as a major in the Confederate Army. He stopped in Staunton in 1865 with General John Echols and was persuaded by Major Henderson M. Bell to form a partnership, Echols, Bell and Catlett, attorneys-at-law.” Other Notable Catlett Trivia: R. H. Catlett’s first wife was Mary Mercer Patton who’s great grandfather, Hugh Mercer, was a friend of George Washington and a Revolutionary War Hero. Charles Catlett, first son of Richard and Mary, donated funds in 1896 to construct a three story addition to King’s Daughters Hospital. He was one of the founders of the Woodrow Wilson Birthplace Foundation that opened the Birthplace to the public in 1932. Charles’ major legacy is Betsy Bell Park. He donated 50 acres in 1941 for the park as a “perpetual memorial…” and specified the site be maintained in its natural state. The house at 303 Berkeley Place remained in the Catlett family until 1973, with Amy Pendleton Catlett and her sister Elizabeth Gay Catlett living here until their deaths. It then passed to Ida Showker who used it for an assisted living home until the early 1980’s. Dan and Susan Ruffner bought it from Mrs. Showker and continued providing care to the elderly and disabled (Dan and Susan now run a B&B in Pennsylvania) until 1992 when they sold the house to Bob and Glynda Barker. Bonnie and Jeff bought the house from the Barker’s late 2013 to turn it into the Staunton Virginia bed and breakfast you see today.

The SpaceThe room is small and cozy as were farm houses in 1890's. The idea of the farm is to be green, self sufficient and chemical free. Room is furnished with up-cycled furniture, barn wood & pallet wall art, antiques and vintage items along with modern pieces. But spend time on the porch or outdoors! No TV, WiFi , air conditioning. Just peace and quiet. Guests will be served a country breakfast: range fed meat/eggs, chemical free and organic when possible. Guest AccessYou may access the living room, dining room, WC. You may also put items in refrigerator. In addition, you are welcome to wonder around the farm keeping in mind that it is a working farm. You will see deer and abundant birds and if you are lucky, a fox, groundhog, raccoon, possum, turkey, snakes and I once saw a bear in the distance. Interaction with GuestsYou are welcome to help garden if you like during the season or pull weeds. Someone should be available to help you with anything you need on the farm or in town. If you need a ride from the train station, I will pick you up. If you'd like a home cooked meal out of the garden, let me know. If you need ideas of places to visit or to borrow movies or books or tea and a conversation on Shakespeare, I'll try to accommodate. The NeighborhoodI live equidistant to Verona, Churchville and Staunton. This is a beautiful valley between the Allegheny Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is centrally located to many attractions. It is about 45 minutes to James Madison and also close to Mennonite Communities. Getting AroundMakana O Kalani is about 3 hours from inside the DC beltway. There are scenic routes or back roads to travel to get there or straight up the interstates. Let me know if you would like some suggestions. The train is also an option or the small airport and I can pick you up. Other Things to NoteThe farm is 20 minutes or less door to door to the BlackFriar Shakespeare Theatre in downtown Staunton traveling country roads at 40 miles per hour. The pace is leisurely and the point is to enjoy the country, but you are close to wonderful restaurants, music and entertainment.

The SpaceThe space available to you is a guest room with a double bed and a futon; both are very comfortable to sleep on. The living room, dining room and kitchen are also part of this rental. It is a lovely home filled with a collection of natural art and made art, all of which are special to me. I don't have a lawn but instead have chosen to plant for the insects, birds, and other creatures. Because of the garden I only allow certain dogs as guests so please don't bring your pet without my permission. I do smoke but only outside. This rule has always applied to me, my friends and my guests. Guest AccessI have my office and studio in a room upstairs. This is the only area of the house that is off limits to guests. My home and garden is my project right now and I spend part of my days working on it. I believe a big part of the beauty of shared economy accommodations for travelers is the human connection. Our world desperately needs that right now. Interaction with GuestsI'm usually available by phone if you have a question. Sometimes I'm out in the mountains without contact but will let you know if that is the situation before I leave the area. The NeighborhoodMy neighborhood is a beautiful mix of people. It's America. Getting AroundAll downtown attractions are within easy walking distance. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to the main shopping/dining areas and to Blackfrairs. A shuttle (25 cents) is a few blocks from my home.

There Is seating for at least 8 in the spacious kitchen and 8 more in the adjacent formal dining room, as well as outdoor dining option on large, covered deck. High ceilings, original moulding, wood floors, architectural details, some lead glass windows, and exposed brick preserve the character of what was originally a Mennonite farmhouse, while two full modernized bathrooms (one on each floor,) and recently updated appliances ensure comfort & convenience. Each bathroom has shower and tub, the upstairs bath has a heat lamp and mountain views; the downstairs bath is very spacious with a double vanity. The water pressure is quite good and makes for enjoyable showers. There are two queen-bed rooms, one upstairs and one down, a small bedroom with a twin bed downstairs, and a fourth bedroom with its own entrance on main level that can be configured with queen bed and/or used as an additional gathering room with sectional sofa, games, and television. (Please inform in advance if you'll use this fourth room as a bedroom, so it can be prepared accordingly. In photos, it is the room with turquoise & tan decor.) In addition to the large, rear deck with mountain views, there is a side porch with porch swing and an enclosed garden area with old well-pump. Original stone work paths and garden accents are being restored around the property, and there is ample off-street parking for a number of vehicles. There is a tree-fort which will be repaired this spring. Please do not use it while this notice is up, but once warm weather returns, it provides a lovely spot for relaxing and looking out over the meadow and into the 10 acres of woods behind the house.) Guest AccessGuests have access to full, private home and gardens: almost an acre of land, 1,800 square feet indoors, large parking area, deck and porch. There is Wifi throughout, and there are three flat screen/HDMI port televisions with DVD players & at least one TV with Cable & Netflix capability, as well as a small library of DVD movies. There is a Wii game system set up with some games available in the Family Room/4th bedroom. There are also a number of books, fiction and non-fiction, as well as a nice selection of children's books, for guests' use, and a number of board games & puzzles for your enjoyment. The kitchen is completely outfitted for cooking and serving full meals, with glass-top electric range and oven, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, blender, dishwasher, double sided fridge with ice-maker, and numerous, high quality pots & pans and ample dishes for serving a large group. Spices and basic staples are kept in the house, and you are welcome to use them as needed. If there is something you know you'll need in terms of cook-ware, etc., please feel free to inquire about whether it is there. Laundry room has Whirlpool washer & dryer. (Please use only High Efficiency detergent products.) There is also an ironing board and iron. There are plenty of extra towels, linens and blankets for your comfort. And for guests with infants or young children, please request in advance if you would like the high-chair and/or pack & play, etc. brought out of attic storage & prepared for your use. Interaction with GuestsOwner can interact with guests via email as needed, and is very available, unless otherwise noted on infrequent occasions, to respond to your needs. But the owner lives out of town and will most likely not meet you in person. Rather, a caretaker will be available if needed to make sure you are checked into the house and to assist if there are any needs during your stay. But, unless you need assistance, you will be able to enjoy privacy and seclusion while being close to everything the "Queen City of the Shenandoah" has to offer. The owner has prepared a thorough notebook/manual with all sorts of information about the house, as well as a thorough assortment of brochures, maps, menus, etc. regarding local attractions, services, restaurants & shops. And if there is anything that's not covered; don't hesitate to ask. Information available in fluent English & Spanish, & limited German. The NeighborhoodI lived in this neighborhood for over 10 years and have held onto my beloved home here for several years since moving away. I've been to 49 of the 50 states and twenty some countries thus far, and still consider Staunton, Virginia to be one of the loveliest places I've ever encountered due to its scenic beauty, historic charm, and the genuine warmth and friendliness of so many residents. Work has moved me a few hours away, but I visit and enjoy staying in my house often, and plan to retire here. I cannot say enough good things about the town and neighborhood; I suggest you visit and you might just fall in love with it all yourself; as I did many years ago. The house has been decorated & outfitted to serve as a therapy retreat location, and all guests can enjoy this warm, welcoming, & whimsical atmosphere which will stay with you long past the time you spend here. Getting AroundThe house is located less than a mile from the center of historic, downtown Staunton, and is quite walkable, though the hill up to the house is steep and you might feel it if you're not in decent shape. It's one mile from the Amtrak train station, and less than a quarter mile to the nearest public trolley stop. Just a few blocks off of historic Route 11, it's easy to find by car as well. Other Things to NoteThe house is less than a mile from Mary Baldwin College and Stuart Hall Boarding school. It is located 30 minutes drive from James Madison University to the north, Washington and Lee University & Virginia Military Institute to the south, and 45 minutes to the east is the University of Virginia. So, it's a great location for college, parent and alumni visits, graduations and reunions. Pets are allowed on an individual basis; please give me a description of your pet(s), and I'll let you know if I think the property is a good fit for your needs. There is a fenced in area, and some basic pet supplies on hand (dishes, small pet bed.) The house is a great place for children, though toddlers/pre-schoolers will probably not be a good match as the house is not child-proofed and there are a lot of breakable decor items. Older children who can follow their parents' directions and be careful with others' belongings will find games, books, and DVD movies they should enjoy, as well as wonderful outdoor space for playing. I've also provided some basic items to make it easier to visit with infants. Please don't hesitate to inquire about your specific needs.

    The SpaceQuickly's Retreat is a beautiful, old stucco home with beautiful hardwood floors and trim, made cozy with a mix of antique and homey furnishings. The living and dining spaces are large enough for a big group, and the quiet bedrooms upstairs assure that everyone can have some privacy when they need it. We've added two flat screen t.v.s (with AppleTV on both), a DVR and lots of movies, wireless internet, games, toys, and even an upright piano, so there's something for everyone. The kitchen is spacious, with all of the appliances, pots and pans, and meal service you'll need. The oven and cooktop are gas, and there's a microwave, toaster, blender, and Keurig machine. The walk to downtown Staunton is pleasant (about 10 minutes), but coming back is a bit of an uphill climb, so you'll get a good workout! Otherwise you can drive down in 5 minutes or less. Interaction with GuestsWe're always available by phone, text, or email. The NeighborhoodOur street is one of the loveliest and quietest in Staunton, so please respect the neighbors by keeping the noise down! We're also a short walk from Mary Baldwin College. Getting AroundGetting around Staunton by foot or car is a breeze, but there's also a trolley that makes a loop around the town, and you can catch it just a few blocks from the house. The city is conveniently located near the intersection of interstates 81 and 64, and Amtrak runs right through downtown.
