Our night at The Acorn Inn was a highlight during a week of 4 hotels as we made our way across NC. So comfortable and well-appointed. Delicious offerings from the kitchen and very friendly hospitality.

To have found this lovely home-away-from-home ranks among the highlights of this summer's travels. We had first stayed at the Acorn Inn while in Burlington for a Motorcycle Safety Course in June, and enjoyed the Inn so much that we returned a few weeks later for a second stay. Mike Brown, his wife, and their phenomenal staff have combined the... More

Our Elon friends met at The Acorn Inn again this summer to visit for a couple of days! We had spotless suites with attractive living room, fireplace, sofa bed! Bathroom includes a fabulous whirlpool tub/shower. The most courteous staff we have ever met provided Wine and Cheese in the afternoon and a delicious breakfast. They also provided cookies, fruit, and... More

Once again The Acorn Inn in Elon, North Carolina was the splendid setting for our College Reunion Gathering. The staff was courteous, helpful and most willing to help with any request! Mary’s breakfast was again bountifully delicious and the coffee was plentiful! I do wish I knew the names of the other staff members that were so very courteous and... More

The Acorn Inn offers wonderful service and southern hospitality. It is in a great location for visiting students at Elon University. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. They offer a complimentary cocktail (with local wines) every Friday evening. The breakfasts in the morning are great and included in the rate .

Our room was a suite with a pullout sofa and a room with a queen size bed separated by a hallway. Great setup especially if you're traveling with a snorer! breakfast served by wonderful staff. Would come back here in an... More

Three visits to the Acorn Inn and always delighted with the cleanliness, friendly service and very comfortable room accommodations. The breakfasts are wonderful...made to order hot selections along with a great variety of yogurts, fresh fruits and baked goods. It's always nice to return in the afternoon to fresh afternoon snacks (home baked cookies, fresh fruit and popcorn.) The location... More

This is our favorite hotel! I wish there was a place like this in every town we visit. It's spotlessly clean, comfortable and a terrific value. Breakfast is great, the staff is friendly and the suite is just marvelous! I can't recommend this inn highly enough.
