    Fabulous

    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.

    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

    Fabulous

    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.

    Very good

    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.

    Fabulous

    Hotel mit großartiger Parkanlage, geschmackvoller Inneneinrichtung im historischen Stil, großzügige Lobby, reichhaltiges Frühstücksbuffet mit vorzüglichem Omelett, gute Freizeitanlagen

    Hotel baulich nicht mehr auf dem allerneuesten Stand, Gebrauchsspuren zum Teil deutlich erkennbar z.B. im Sanitärbereich, Personal nicht durchgängig freundlich

    Guest rating

    Sehr großzügig angelegt, Dekorative neu Häuser, innen wie außen. Große hübsch eingerichtete Zimmer. Separate Eingänge der Gebäude mit überdachten Gängen verbunden.

    Typisch amerikanisches SPA, chlorduftiger inndoorpool, Hellhöriges Holzhaus, lauter Kühlschrank, laute A/C, sehr weiche Matratze mit noch weicherem topper drauf. Dreckige Fenster, Spinnweben im Zimmer !

    Fabulous

    Nach dem Trubel in Virginia Beach eine wundervolle und entspannte Alternative. Traumhafte Anlage zum entspannen und genießen. Tolles Frühstücks Buffet. Immer wieder gerne.

    WLAN war im Zimmer schlecht
