A Virginia Woodland Preserve
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Lightwood House can sleep up to ten guests in five bedrooms. Four are upstairs and include two large bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed; one smaller bedroom, with a double bed; and one attic room, with two single beds. The attic room adjoins one of the queen bedrooms and can serve as a family suite. In order to get to the upstairs bathroom from the attic room, one needs to go through the queen bedroom. Another very small bedroom with a double bed is located downstairs. The bed is against the wall, so it can be awkward for the "inside" person to get out over the "outside" person at night.
Lightwood also offers two large bathrooms: one upstairs with a tub/shower arrangement, and one downstairs with a six-foot jetted tub and separate walk-in marble shower with built-in bench. There is only one closet and one wardrobe in the house, but each bedroom has a chest of drawers. Stairs are steep but have strong hand railings in the event that a guest might have difficulty climbing stairs.
The rest of the house is spacious, with a large entrance hall, large dining room and comfortable living room. Both front and back yards are fenced in, and over a hundred acres of woods, streams and meadows complete the outdoor scene.
"This estate will forever stand out as a sublime destination."
“Lightwood is as close to heaven on earth as you can get.”
“Lightwood is a total enchantment.”
