We loved our stay at the Acorn Inn. The staff is friendly and our room was beautiful and roomy. They have snacks and magazines in the hallway. A light breakfast was included but they will also make you eggs for an extra charge. The porch is wonderful place to unwind with your own cocktail. It is right across from the...

What a warm, lovely, welcoming and charming B&B. We were visiting Elon University and The Acorn is just a few blocks from campus. We couldn't have chosen a better place!! Our suite was beautiful and the bed was so comfortable. In the evening, there are freshly baked cookies set out and they were delicious!! Breakfast was great too. Looking forward...

Right near the University and the beautiful North Carolina landscapes. Kingsdown sleep system is oh-so-comfy! Cookies in the afternoon and popcorn later. Lovely breakfast with Mary's famous frittata. Bikes to borrow. Don't worry about the nearby train tracks. The last train I heard in the night was at 10:15. Lots of acorn theme items around - lots of fun. We...

The Acorn Inn is our first choice when visiting Elon U. It is reasonably priced, each room has its own sitting room, and there is a lovely expansive porch with loads of seating. The Acorn offers special touches such as a note on the door reminding us to set our clocks back, popcorn and fresh baked cookies every night, daily...

We are parents of a senior at Elon, and this was our first stay at the Inn. So wish we'd stayed here during other visits. Very convenient to Elon's campus, lovely and large rooms, wine tasting in the evening, breakfast served in the morning, and free use of laundry. Staff very friendly, and the setting was very, very comfortable. If...

We stayed here while touring Elon. Unbelievably nice accommodations. There was a glass of wine to greet us, as well as snacks! Our corner suite was huge with seating areas, king beds, a modern bathroom. Campus is right across the street, and the Elon restaurants and shops are steps away. Breakfast was lovely, with a great variety of frittata, yogurts,...

Stayed here for a week for this year's parents weekend. My daughter was sick and spent several nights with me while we nursed her back to health. I can't say enough about how accommodating the entire staff were. They were always very attentive and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. We have stayed...

There is a very nice patio with several chairs and tables that are great for eating the included breakfast out-side or relaxing.Everything is clean and working. All of the staff are friendly...

We had returned to Elon with our daughter who is a senior. She was to do an overnite at Elon with one of her friends. Unfortunately she has torn her ACL 2 days before our visit. She needed to stay with us. The manager changed us to a 2 bedroom suite (the LT Suite). It was spacious, comfortable and gorgeous....
