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.


“I have been staying at the Jerico B&B every year since 2002 with a group of motorcycle friends for a long weekend of riding the lovely local roads. We have always booked the Lewis cabin for many reasons: the number of beds, large kitchen, a flat driveway with plenty of parking room, a fireplace for cold evenings, and the propane grill. But most of all, we like it there because of the hot tub. After a full day of riding the local twisties, nothing feels better than relaxing in the tub with the jets running full blast!

It is especially nice to sit on the front porch and watch the fireflies flit among the leaves in the evening. Falling asleep in the quiet of the woods is so easy. From the Lewis cabin, it is short walk to downtown Marlinton and the Greenbrier River.

Lindie and Tom have treated us like family even on our first stay; last year they treated our group to a magnificent ‘anniversary’ dinner at the Main House! We look forward to seeing them every year and could never stay anywhere else. I heartily recommend them to anyone staying in West Virginia – not to be missed!”
