    Founders Inn and Spa is a laid-back resort with acres of beautifully maintained grounds. The English gardens are beautiful. There is a small lake with walking trails on site as well. The only downside is being located a bit too close to the highway – it can be a bit noisy at times. However, the beautiful setting makes it feel like an oasis: a very different experience from staying on the beach – but in a good way. Founders has a classic, elegant Southern style charm.

    The room was very basic and I was a bit disappointed that there were no large windows to view the beautiful grounds. I was also hoping for some type of terrace or balcony. The rooms are small and outdated and do not have any particular theme or décor. There are no special amenities besides a flat screen TV and free bottled waters. I did appreciate the natural shampoos, conditioners, and lotions.

    This resort offers great prices, probably because it is located so far from the ocean (about a 20 minute drive). We booked a stay 2 nights get 1 free deal and only paid $150 for 3 nights – not a bad deal especially if you are looking more for relaxation over the noisy beach setting. Check their website as they offer a variety of different deals – some include breakfast, free nights, etc.

    Overall, Founders Inn and Spa is a good place to stay if you are looking for a place outside of the beach area. If you are looking for a beach vacation, you will be very disappointed. However, Founders offers great rates if you are willing to stay in a different part of town. Just skip the spa and enjoy the beauty outside.
