What is Shrine Mont?
Shrine Mont is a full service conference and retreat center located in Orkney Springs, VA – about 40 minutes from Harrisonburg. We are located 13 miles west of Interstate 81, two hours from the Washington capital beltway and three hours from downtown Richmond. Shrine Mont is affiliated with the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia and all are welcome.
Shrine Mont sits on over 1,200 acres of forest adjacent to the George Washington national Forest. Guests can relax by hiking our trails, playing a game of tennis or just rocking on our over 3,000 linear feet of porches. Its the ideal place to wind down for a minute during this exciting time for JMU families.
Shrine Mont’s mission is to be A Place Apart. Rooms are simple and comfortable with accommodations for two and a private bathroom. The rooms do not have televisions, telephones or air conditioning beyond the cool mountain breezes. There is public wi-fi in the main facilities and spotty cell phone service. Its the perfect place to relax for a few minutes before heading to graduation.
Accommodations options include cottages with a living room and porch or “Hotel” style rooms in the fully renovated 19th century resort area once know as the Orkney Springs Hotel.
Shrine Mont subscribes to the all-inclusive American Plan where rates include three full meals a day and all rates are quoted on a per person basis. Shrine Mont will have a special rate just for JMU graduation that includes an early continental breakfast to make sure guests get to graduation on time.
