"This house is a treasure"

"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."

"It will be a dream to once again sit and breathe in the soul of your wonderful old manse."


"From the moment we drove through your beautiful white gates we felt we had entered another world; completely enchanting and charming."


​​​Nestled deep in an ancient beech forest, Lightwood is a unique historic vacation rental, in rural Surry County, Virginia, close to Williamsburg and Jamestown.  With over 100 private acres of woods, meadows and streams, staying at Lightwood offers an unequaled experience for lovers of history and nature.
