About The Founders Inn and Spa
With its orderly rows of windows and symmetrical chimneys, The Founders Inn and Spa's stately exterior references Georgian architecture, a style named after the four Georges who ruled 18th-century England. The resort's interior, however, pays tribute to one of the biggest thorns in the side of the third King George—colonial America. Oil paintings of the Founding Fathers peer out from gilded frames, and colonial-era furnishings sit around roaring fireplaces. The hotel is on the grounds of and owned by Regent University, a Christian school founded in 1978 by evangelical broadcaster Pat Robertson, who remains its chancellor.
The resort continues the historical theme throughout its guest accommodations, featuring artifacts such as throwback quilts and gas fireplaces. Bacon-wrapped Virginia beef, pork belly with local peaches, and other colonial-inspired dishes send taste buds back in time at the award-winning Swan Terrace, one of two onsite restaurants.
Modern amenities such as an outdoor pool, 25-foot water slide, and tennis courts facilitate kinetic entertainment. The Flowering Almond Spa’s hot tub and relaxing body treatments soothe muscles sore from bouts in the fitness center or arm-wrestling matches with redcoats.
