Also known as the Samuel Taylor Suit Cottage, the Berkeley Castle is more of a traditional castle in appearance instead of a cottage. It was built from 1885 to the early 1890s for Colonel Samuel Taylor Suit and his family to serve as a personal retreat and vacation home. It is located in Berkeley Springs in West Virginia, the same location where the Colonel met his wife, Rosa Pelham Suit.

The Berkeley Castle is composed of fifteen rooms with a ballroom that measures of 50 feet by 40 feet. It also has a dungeon that is popular for ghost tours. It is believed that the architect Alfred B. Mullett based his design on England?s Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire.

The Berkeley Castle used to be open for public tours, but it was again re-acquired and is now privately owned.
