Experience small town living at our century old house located on the Main Street of Historic Downtown Elkin. We are walking distance to downtown restaurants, pubs and stores as well as the Yadkin River. Biking, fishing, walking, and tennis opportunities are all accessible without getting in your car. More than 10 wineries of the Yadkin Valley are within a 20 minute drive. Also nearby is some of the best fly fishing, golf, and antiquing in North Carolina.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We moved to Elkin 15 years ago from the wine country of Oregon and immediately felt at home in the beautiful foothills of the Yadkin Valley.

Why the Owner Chose Elkin:
As former big city residents we appreciate the relaxed and friendly pace of Elkin. The town is steeped in history and the opportunity to own this beautiful historic property is a dream come true. We believe in Elkin and its small town charms and want to share them with visitors to our lovely part of North Carolina.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Snow House is a relaxing retreat after a busy day exploring Elkin and the surrounding area. Fine and casual dining are footsteps away. If you have more energy the town park is around the corner with running and walking trails, tennis courts, fishing, and swimming. Enjoy the small town life and sit on your porch, listen to the birds and wave to the friendly neighbors walking by.
