The charm of the hotel can be felt throughout the grounds and throughout the hotel as guests can enjoy the artwork and the general colonial atmosphere of the interiors themselves.
A stone’s throw away from Regent University, the inn is a popular place to stay for those looking to visit the school itself. It is also only twenty minutes away from Virginia Beach Oceanfront and downtown Norolk, The Founders Inn and Spa is the ideal choice for those wanting to get away from it all, while still being very close to all the attractions that Virginia Beach has to offer.
The Founders Inn and Spa blends together classic old world beauty and elements of colonial era charm which make the accommodation both elegant and homely at the same time.

Within its 26-acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, The Founders Inn and Spa is home to tennis courts, lakeside jogging trails, games in the garden, the award-winning Almond Spa and additional award-winning Swan Terrace.
Within the spa guests find a fully equipped fitness center, an indoor pool, seasonal outdoor pool, hot tub and special massage and beauty rooms at the full service Flowering Almond Spa. At the spa, which is elegantly and warmly decorated to give guests a sense of calm and relaxation, guests can enjoy a range of treatments. A spa day could include a deep cleansing facial, manicure, pedicure, body wrap or Swedish massage during a full day of relaxing treatments interspersed with a spa lunch from Swan Terrace restaurant.
The multi-award winning Swan Terrace is home to executive chef Scott Simpson and has garnered many awards for local food and wine. From locally caught seafood, fresh from Chesapeake bay, to Sunday brunch to a true Virginia grill or English afternoon tea, there’s something for everyone at the acclaimed restaurant. The chef guides diners on a sensory journey inspired by authentic Colonial dishes and local ingredients and food.
For those who prefer something a little more laid back there is also the Hunt Room, which is perfect for casual dining.
