Tranquil Virginia Colonial Resort 

Sweeping Grounds, Restful Location

At the Founders Inn and Spa, enjoy a peaceful resort experience away from the activity and noise of Virginia Beach's most populated areas. This colonial-style vacation spot is a short drive from downtown Norfolk and the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, but its 26 beautiful acres offer guests a pocket of relaxation and beauty.

Spa Relaxation and Water Sports

The Founders Inn and Spa is perfect for those looking for sporty fun or a tranquil time. Activities at the resort include tennis, beach volleyball, and a lakeside jogging trail. Eat at Swan Terrace for fine dining with a southern twist. Enjoy a spa day at Flower Almond Spa or take a leisurely walk around the English gardens.

Take a drive into Norfolk, Virginia, a historical town that dates back to the early 1600s. Norfolk also offers a host of water activities, like fishing, boating, and waterskiing. Head down to Virginia Beach and visit the Boardwalk, where you can go biking or rollerblading down the street.

Luxurious Rooms With Charm

Rooms at the resort blend charming colonial style with technology, concierge service, and the best amenities. Certain rooms feature fireplaces and beautiful views of the garden and the lake.
