The property is good, it has nice looking grounds, an OK breakfast Buffett with an omelette station, and the room was clean. The toilet seat was low to the ground, the access card did not always open the exterior building door, and there was no mini fridge in the room. However, the property is good and I would stay again if I needed to be in the area.

We loved staying at the Founders Inn! Rooms are spaceous, main building decor is great. I like that the dogs owners are separated into a different building, so no barking dogs for the rest of us. Hotel grounds are beatiful, no wonder why so many weddings occur at the inn. Breakfast experience was amazing. The restaurant is beautiful as well. Food selection was decent and fresh, and one can order an omlet with some additions of your choice. Young lady making those was very pleasant. Serving ladies were outstanding during both breakfasts that we attended

Uncomfortable beds. Overall very disappointed for nearly $300 a night. The bed was very uncomfortable and the lamp shade on side of bed had mold on it.
