The (former) Elkin & Alleghany Railroad Office has been designated as an "Certified Historic Structure and Rehabilitation" by the US Dept. of the Interior. In addition, the railroad office received an Award of Merit for "Best Historic Rehabilitation Project" in 2017 from the NC Department of Commerce Main Street program.
Located in Downtown Historic Elkin on the west end of Main Street, we sit at the crossroads of the OverMountain Victory National Historic Trail, the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, and the Elkin and Allegheny Rail Trail. We are centrally located in the Yadkin Valley Wine Region with more than 40 tasting rooms to explore.
Convenient to local downtown restaurants, shops, and entertainment. Enjoy the events at Elkin Municipal Park, which is a short walk away. Relax with the peaceful sounds from the Big Elkin Creek waterfall across the bridge.
After 19 months of planning and rehabilitation work, the railroad office was opened as a destination rental in December 2016. The 523 sq. ft space offers a parlor, kitchenette, bedroom, and full bath.
The parlor includes a sofa, chairs, drop table, and Smart TV. The kitchenette has wormy chestnut cabinets with granite countertops, a refrigerator with freezer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, dinnerware, and cutlery. The bedroom offers a queen size bed and sitting area. The bathroom includes a shower with shower bar and jets, heated overhead fan, and dresser vanity. The backdoor leads to a outdoor patio with a fenced in yard. The outdoor area is nicely landscaped with a offset umbrella, patio table, and fountain.
