                  An lovely and idyllic place. Great supervised outdoor pool where you can read and relax.

                  If you toss and turn like me, the beds are terrible. You quickly end up on the bare mattress. Don't look under the bed, the bogeyman left years of stuff under it.

                • Family with children
                  9.6

                  This was a very cozy lodge. The grounds were well preserved and easy to move around. The staff was extra friendly. We were able to take advantage of the pool and fitness area. Even considering the distance, we preferred Founder's Inn to the beach accommodations at Virginia Beach

                • Older travelers
                  7.8

                  I liked the overall atmosphere and decor. The view from our room was beautiful. Our dinner was excellent and I really appreciated executive chef Scott Simpson stopping by our table to ask how we were enjoying our meal. The pool was wonderful!

                  The bed was too high. I thought I was going to fall off every time I got out of bed. The a/c took a very long time to cool the room.

                  Really enjoyed the clean room & grounds are like an English garden. Over all very beautiful hotel! Annemarie & Jim

                  Will recommend to friends & family !

                • Family with children
                  7.0

                  Staff was excellent, friendly, helpful. The decor and grounds are pretty. The proximity to my relatives' home was the only reason I chose to stay here.

                  Poor mattresses on the beds. They need replacement; the middle of the mattresses were sagging from much use. The room and bathroom should have been cleaner.
