This is a very beautifyl place on the Va/WVA border. It is a retreat center owned by the Episcopal Church. The buildings are old but well preserved. They have the main hotel buildings and numerous cabins. I stayed in a cabin and the room is very simple. It has no air conditioning, but does have a fan you can place... More

My review is only for the Orkney Springs Hotel and related buildings. My first time here was in 1973. My High School Band came here every year for a week long marching band camp. I also was here for band camp in 1974 and 1975. In this millennium, I have been here in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 and just this... More

This is my 17th time coming to shrine mont with family friends. We rent miller cabin and the other houses for a week. We don't just stay on shrine mint property, we leave and go to other places such as horse back riding, kayaking in the Shenandoah river, lake Laura and Bryce mountain to go zip lining or tubing.

The staff here are so kind, the food is so good, and the sleep you get is priceless! I came for a conference last year and thought I would relive the horrors of summer camp as a child, but I found the quiet and simplicity such a good escape that I came back again. Yes, you can bring a radio... More

We have been to this retreat center more than 20 times and each time we find something else interesting and special. The architecture is so interesting, the history of the hotel and the surrounding area always provides something new. The scenery is outstanding, the accommodations are basic but comfortable. The food seems to get better each visit, the staff are... More

Shrine Mont is a wonderful place to get away and enjoy the Virginia mountains and has lots of things to do. Tennis and golf are close and there is some nice, not difficult hiking trails It is only two hours from the DC area.

After reading these reviews I was a little concerned that I would go through electronic device withdrawal, but there is internet in the main lobby. The food and service was spectacular. They sold used books to read for $1 and also had an extensive book store with a wide range of interesting books. Most important, it was QUIET. Lots of... More

We were attending a concert in Orkney Springs that was part of the annual Shenandoah Music Festival so decided to spend the night there instead of driving home at a late hour. The Shrine Mont lodging is very basic (2 twin beds, no TV/radio/air conditioning) but as long as it's not TOO hot you can get by comfortably. Each room... More

Had not been back here for several years but we were invited to a Spring wedding. The rooms in Maryland House have been updated and as long as you enjoy a basic room (i.e., clean, private bathroom, no TV, no phone, no AC, limited closet storage) this is a great place to stay. And it is hard to beat the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Shrine Mont is a nonprofit conference and retreat center with accommodations for up to 550 people. At our heart is the Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration, the Cathedral of the diocese with public services held at 11:00 on Sundays from early April through mid November. We are located on 1,200 acres of forest in the historic resort town of Orkney Springs, VA fifteen miles west of I81 and two hours west of Washington, DC. Part of our facility is a former resort hotel and accommodations vary from recently renovated hotel style rooms to cottages for families or small groups. Recreation activities include swimming, tennis, hiking, sports activities, volleyball, shuffleboard, Boccie, hayrides and camp fires. Golf and a zip line are available at the nearby Bryce resort. ... more   less
