Explore Langwood - Your Adventure is Waiting...

Deep in the heart of Louisa County lies a hidden gem that we call: Langwood. This one-minute video will show you some of the highlights that Langwood has to offer. The area is available for rent this spring/summer/fall and winter.  Dates fill up fast so don't delay in making your reservation.  The area is perfect for scouts, church and youth groups, family reunions, rustic weddings, and more!  A huge thanks goes out to the Community Foundation of Louisa County, Eyework Studios, and everyone who is in this amazing video featuring Langwood!!
