Stepping onto the sprawling grounds of The Founders Inn and Spa, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were at the wrong place—palatial yet humbly named, the property is less of an inn than it is an estate. But an apt tribute to its namesake Founding Fathers? It is most certainly that.

Set on 16 acres in Virginia Beach, the Georgian-style hotel is fronted by fountains and perfectly trimmed hedges, and decorated inside with Oriental rugs, chandeliers, and large framed paintings of John Adams, James Madison, and the like.

And with this Escape, you'll get a healthy helping of 18th-century elegance, but don't expect white-gloved butlers and classically trained string quartets. With festive seasonal decorations and the ultra-modern Flowering Almond Spa, The Founders Inn is anything but stuffy. Check into your newly renovated room, featuring Kingsdown pillow-top mattresses, and flip on the 42-inch flat-screen TV or surf the Internet with complimentary Wi-Fi.

When you aren't splashing in the indoor pool or pampering yourself in the spa, head 20 minutes east to the Virginia Beach Boardwalk, or make the hour-long drive north to historic Williamsburg, Jamestown, or Yorktown.

And when colonialist undertakings leave you famished, sate your appetite back at the inn. The Hunt Room, a contemporary-casual eatery with a pool table and large TVs, serves a variety of soups, artisanal sandwiches, and brick-oven pizzas, plus beer and wine. Upscale offerings abound at the award-winning Swan Terrace Restaurant, set on the outdoor brick patio and serving locally sourced fruits and veggies, seafood, prime meats, and a sommelier-selected list of wines.

With three restaurants, an award-winning spa, and décor fit for the White House, The Founders Inn and Spa is unlike any inn you've seen. The hospitality, however, is as warm as a country bed and breakfast—homemaker Martha Washington would definitely approve.

  • "We stayed at the Founders for the first time and were thoroughly delighted... It's a top quality property: Egyptian cotton, great mattresses, nicely appointed rooms, very nice foyer, and excellent food."
