Lightwood House is an elegant Eighteenth-Century plantation house nestled in an ancient beech forest in rural Surry County, Virginia. The estate comprises one hundred acres of woods, fields, and streams, and is part of the land given by Chief Powhatan to Pocahontas and John Rolfe as a wedding gift in 1614.

Built in four different periods starting in 1760, Lightwood House is completely restored, and features exceptional, detailed woodwork and authentic furnishings, yet also offers all modern conveniences, inc...

About the neighbourhood
The world-class historic museums of Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Yorktown are only a short drive and free, 24-hour, 20 minute car ferry away. All three attractions are connected by the beautiful Colonial Parkway, which begins at Jamestown where the ferry docks, follows the James and York rivers, passes through Williamsburg and ends at Yorktown on the Chesapeake Bay. Many important Civil War sites are within an hour's drive, in the Richmond/Petersburg area.
River-front beaches can be found in Surry at Chippokes State Park, at Jamestown on the James River, and Yorktown on the York River leading to the Chesapeake Bay. Virginia Beach itself is a little over an hour's drive away. Williamsburg is also the home of Busch Gardens and Water Country USA theme parks. Surry County at...
