Жилье
Nestled in an ancient beech forest, Lightwood Forest is a beautiful eighteenth-century house in rural Surry County, Virginia. The house sits in a private 110-acre park of woods, fields, and streams, which was part of the wedding gift of Chief Powhatan to his daughter Pocahontas, and her English husband, John Rolfe. The property can be explored via our two miles of hiking trails. The house is furnished with seventeenth-, eighteenth-, and early nineteenth-century antiques and reproductions. Originally the home of a Revolutionary War soldier and his family, the house was the center of a prosperous tobacco estate in the eighteenth century. Lightwood is beautifully restored, featuring wonderful original woodwork, and has all modern amenities, including satellite TV, air conditioning, WIFI, washing machine and dryer, etc.

Children love exploring the nooks and crannies of this venerable old house. While elegant, the furnishings are sturdy, so please don't be afraid of turning kids loose in the house. Children's toys can be found in closets, and there is a children's play area out back with swings, slide and play tower. There is even a fairy tree in the forest where children can tie wishes...which might come true according to the legend! Up to two canine companions are also welcomed to stay.

Be sure to enquire about our Treasure Hunt quest in ancient Lightwood Forest! For children, and for grown ups who are still young at heart, join a search for the treasure hidden by fairies, who, according to legend, came from far off Scotland centuries ago, and settled amongst the ancient beeches, poplars, and oaks in Lightwood Forest. Be on the lookout for an ancient parchment scroll, beribboned and heavily weathered, which contains, lore be told, a mysterious treasure map, containing fascinating and elusive clues to the location of the treasure itself. This treasure, protected through the centuries by ancient fairy magic, is contained within a wooden chest that verily brims with a stupendous hoard of jewelry and sundry other baubles, which can be shared and taken home, with, of course, all the good luck and very best wishes forever and ever from the fairies! This one-of-a-kind and once-in-a-lifetime experience for adventurers of all ages costs $250 and can be enjoyed all year long!

There are very few houses of this period in this country available for vacation stays. Usually vacationers would need to go to Britain or Europe to stay in such an historic treasure. Lightwood Forest is a rare opportunity to experience both history and nature first hand. It is one of America's most beautiful and unique historic vacation rentals.

Due to the Covid issue, events are not allowed

Что доступно гостю
The entire house and grounds are rented to your party. The house is one mile from the town of Surry, and 3 1/2 miles to the free, 18-minute car ferry to Jamestown and Williamsburg. The ferry leaves frequently, runs 24 hours a day, and docks at Jamestown on the north side of the river, giving a good view of historic Jamestown Island during the trip. Jamestown is 1/2 mile, and Colonial Williamsburg 6 miles from the ferry dock. Busch Gardens is about 12 miles away.

BEDROOMS- There are five bedrooms, and two large bathrooms, one up and one downstairs. If your party is close to the maximum of 10, I like to let you know the bedroom details, to make sure the bedroom arrangements will work for you. There are four bedrooms upstairs- two larger bedrooms each with a queen-sized bed, one small bedroom with a double bed, and one attic bedroom with two twin beds. The attic room adjoins one of the queen bedrooms, and one needs to go through the queen bedroom from the attic room to get to the upstairs bathroom. It often serves as a type of family suite. There is one more very small bedroom downstairs with a double bed. The bed is against the wall, so it can be difficult for the "inside" person to get out over the "outside" person in the middle of the night. There are two large bathrooms, one up and one downstairs. The upstairs bathroom has a tub/shower arrangement, and the downstairs bathroom has a six-foot jetted tub, as well as a separate walk-in shower. There is only one closet and one wardrobe in the house, but each bedroom has a chest-of-drawers. The stairs are steep in case someone in the party might have trouble with them. The rest of the house is large enough to spread out in, with a large dining room, large entrance hall, and comfortable living room. There is a large fenced-in front and back yard, and 100 acres of forest, meadows, and streams to explore on our two miles of hiking trails.

Вильямсбург, Виргиния, Соединенные Штаты

Surry, although in the Williamsburg area, is another world from the rapidly growing town across the river. It is rural, traditional Tidewater, Virginia. The population of the county is almost exactly the same as listed in the first census of 1790. Many of the local names can be found on the lists of the first settlers at Jamestown. It is a friendly, laid-back place of farms, forests, and fields, but only a short ferry ride to Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown, and their many attractions. Lightwood is definitely rural, but is only one mile from the town of Surry.

You can also visit our web site, which you can find by searching online for Lightwood House.

I am a professional musician by trade, one time professional opera singer, having sung many leading roles in the U.S. and in Europe. I still regularly perform in early music ensembles, specializing in the popular music of the 17th and 18th centuries. I love early/classical/traditional music, history, antiques (especially early long case clocks) and early architecture. Joy loves old houses, the English countryside, rescue animals, growing wildflowers, and especially loves being a mom to our wonderful sons.
