History of the Ruckman Cabin

image6 Ruckman Cabin West Virginia CabinsThe Col. Ruckman Cabin was named after John W. Ruckman, who was commissioned Captain in the 127th Regiment of the 20th Brigade and 3 division of the Virginia Militia by Governor Henry A. Wise.
On September 17, 1858, Ruckman was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel by Governor Henry A. Wise of Virginia.

During the Civil War, John Ruckmans regiment served mostly in the capacity of road and bridge clearance, construction and repair.

Katherine Ruckman McClure Beard was the great granddaughter of John Wade and Margaret Ann Moore Ruckman. It is admirable that she should have the original home of her great grandparents preserved by her cousin Thomas Moses Moore Jr., now the owner / operator of the Jerico Bed & Breakfast. The cabin was moved from the Ruckman Homestead located in Mill Point, WV, to the Jerico Bed & Breakfast in 2004, and opened its doors to welcome its first guest on July 1, 2015.


“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.”
