A Virginia Woodland Preserve

Lightwood...More Than a House...A Magical World

Nestled deep in an ancient beech wood, Lightwood Forest is an historic eighteenth-century vacation rental estate in rural Surry County, Virginia, close to Williamsburg and Jamestown. With over 100 private acres of woods, meadows and streams, the estate offers an unequaled experience for lovers of history and nature. One of America's most beautiful and unique historic vacation homes, Lightwood Forest is also available for weddings and other fine events. 

"On the first night at Lightwood I felt as if I were going to sleep in the cradle of our nation; tonight I had the precious opportunity to rock my grandson to sleep in this house, where so many have dreamed."
