image7 Patton Cabin West Virginia CabinsPatton enlisted into the service of Virginia on May 8, 1861, and became captain of Co. H, 22nd Regiment Virginia Volunteer Infantry. Two months later he received a promotion to lieutenant colonel. He held this rank until his promotion to full colonel in January 1863. On September 19, 1864, and the Third Battle of Winchester dawned, Patton again found himself in command of Echols’ brigade. When the engagement opened, Patton’s brigade supported Confederate cavalry north of Winchester near Stephenson’s Depot, but as the day progressed he gradually moved his brigade south toward Winchester. By late afternoon Patton’s brigade anchored the Confederate left flank near Fort Collier. The massive Union cavalry attack aimed at the Confederate left sent Patton’s men fleeing through Winchester. As Patton tried to rally his tattered brigade in a street he received a wound in the leg. It proved mortal.Patton writhed in agony until Union soldiers captured him and took him to the home of Philip Williams on Piccadilly Street. There, Union surgeons recommended that Patton’s leg be amputated. He expired six days later amid the enemy that had inflicted his mortal wound.His body was interred in the Stonewall Cemetery, in Winchester, in sight of where his wound was inflicted. He was buried next to his brother—Col. Waller Tazewell Patton of the 7th Virginia Infantry—who was mortally wounded at the Battle of Gettysburg.

The Patton Cabin came from the Rapp Diary Farm in Greenbrier County, WV.

Testimonials

“When skiing at Snowshoe Mountain, I always choose to stay at the Jerico. Being around the crowds all day, it is so nice to go back to the quietness of the B&B. I have been staying at the B&B for several years during ski season. The Jerico is pretty perfect! Its in a very nice country setting. The owners are kind and make sure vacationers are taken care of. Can’t beat the hospitality! The food is really good, and I look forward to the big home made breakfast that they have. My favorite room is room 4. There is also a hot tub at the Main House for guests to sit back and relax and with the soft lights surrounding the porch you can watch the deer eat the corn in the snow.

My favorite cabin is the Yank. It has its own private out door hot tub and there is a stream next to it. There are some mornings were you may be greeted by the cows at the fence with curious faces. The rates are much lower than Snowshoe Resort I look forward to my return each year and would highly recommend the Jerico to anyone.”
