History of the Main House

Aaron Moore acquired the farm on the fourth of December 1865, during the period of the Civil war.

The Main House was built in 1900 by John William Moore, he was one of four brothers in a family of seven children who were descendants of the great pioneer, Morse Moore, who settled in Pocahontas County around 1760. The Moses Moore Marker is located near the birth place on Route 92.

In 1991, the original house was remodeled by the great nephew of John, Thomas Moses Moore Jr., owner/operator of the Jerico Bed and Breakfast.


“This is my second visit to the Jerico. My wife and I stayed at the Jerico about 14 years earlier in the Rebel Cabin. It left such a positive impression on us that I am a returning guest. This year 2015, I stayed at the Jerico in Nov for 3 nights as a stop over on my way to Florida. I stayed in the Rebel cabin again!! This cabin is located in a private area with a beautiful mountain view. Being I love my morning coffee, it was so relaxing sitting on the front porch watching the animals enjoying my coffee. In the evening, sitting by a fire roasting hot dogs and marshmallow was a great way to end the day. You just can’t beat the fresh crisp cool air while warming your toes by the fire. A quick dip in the hot tub turned out to be a little longer than expected! The warmth of the hot tub with the cool air made it so relaxing. The hospitality can’t be beat! The accommodations very clean!!

The Rebel was just a wonderful experience in a 1800 cabin with a touch of nostalgia. The fireplace is very romantic with the lights turned low, and watching a movie. The ambiance of romance was there, but my wife was not able to join me on this trip. In the morning I ate breakfast at the Main House lodge and was treated
to a home cooked meal of fresh in season fruit cup, waffles, bacon, eggs, juice, coffee, toast!! You sure get a great start to the day, and you never leave hungry!! I highly recommend staying at the Jerico Cabins! I look forward to my next visit in the near future. Thank you to the owners and staff for a very enjoyable stay. They went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable.”
