Surround yourselves with history, art and nature with over two miles of private hiking trails meandering throughout the forest. A true hands-on historical experience, .
Lightwood Forest is in rural Surry County, on the south side of the James River, a short, free car ferry ride from Williamsburg and Jamestown, which runs 24/7, all year.

Indawo
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 magnificent ancient 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 sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth, and early nineteenth-century art and antiques along with a few reproductions. Nevertheless we are both pet and child friendly, and children and pets are most welcomed. The furniture is sturdy, and has survived countless children and pets for centuries, so a few more won't hurt! In the past year we have added almost 30 period pieces to the Lightwood Forest Collection.

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. As already mentioned, while elegant, the furnishings are sturdy, so please don't be afraid of turning kids loose in the house. The house and furnishings have survived hundreds of years of children, pets, wars, revolutions, tavern brawls and much more, so another couple of hundred years of use won't do any harm. 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!


In over 18 years of offering Lightwood Forest as a vacation rental, we have had hundreds of reviews, and have never received less than a 5 star review- not one!


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.

Williamsburg, Virginia, i-United States

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.

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.
