This place is the most close to home you can feel. The morning breakfast is served to your liking. The coffee is delicious and flows freely. The waffles are amazing. You can park your car and walk anywhere you want in Elon and when you return to the acorn, you are welcomed with smiles and a treat of some delicious...

We love staying here! The Acorn Inn is close to the Elon campus making it very convenient. The rooms are sparkling clean, the beds are extremely comfortable and our suite was huge with a sitting area, a great bathroom and then the bedroom. They make it very comfortable with water available in the lobby along with little treats throughout the...

Like most folks we have a student at Elon and wanted to stay close for a visit. Avon is is nice, with plenty of space and nice room appointments. There are a few things that keep it out of five star territory. While the outside patio is nice, it's right on a busy road. Breakfast is included, but if you've...

We recently traveled to Elon university and stayed one night at The Acorn Inn. What a pleasant surprise. The room was modern, well appointed, very comfortable and clean. There was a glass of wine from a local Virginia winery and snacks like apples popcorn and cookies located in different areas of the inn. The only drawback was a sorority party...

Little touches make this inn feel like home. Bathroom amenities, reading areas, and an outdoor deck. The rooms are very spacious and newer, and have the feel of a hotel. Breakfast is included. Some items are buffet and someone will cook you anything else you want. Good value here. Checking in after 9 pm (6 pm on Sunday) can be...

We stayed in room six which was very attractive and spacious with separate sleeping and sitting areas. It was spotless and up to date with all the amenities including a small microwave and refrigerater. The large front patio was...

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...
