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 â€“ 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 â€“ 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 The rooms are small and outdated and do not have any particular theme or dÃ©cor. 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 â€“ 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 â€“ 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.
