 Lightwood is one of America's most beautiful and unique historic vacation rentals. We are now engaged in making the house and grounds into an historic wedding and events venue. Intimate, romantic, elegant and surrounded by nature's splendor, Lightwood is the perfect place for your special occasion of up to 150 guests.

Exchange your vows in a woodland setting, enveloped by the majesty of the forest. Only steps away is a spacious lawn large enough for a 40 x 80 tent, and ideal for hosting receptions, dinners, and dancing. The ground floor of the house, the garden, and back patio are available for the use of guests. For those who would like to enjoy a romantic walk, we have over two miles of walking trails on our 100 beautiful and private acres.

We believe that an event as special as a wedding should never be rushed, so the estate is exclusively yours from 12:00 noon on Friday to 12:00 noon on Sunday. This leaves plenty of time for decorating, rehearsing, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and even a Sunday morning brunch. Also up to six overnight guests are welcome to stay at Lightwood.
