Smith Farm at Elon built in 1948 was the home place of the late Woodrow and Francis Smith and there sons Kevin and Eric. Rebecca and I purchased it in the Fall of 2016 and it has been a labor of Love to restore. The home has been completely modernized but still retains the farmhouse charm. Hardwood floors, a modern kitchen with new appliances and granite countertops, and updated bathrooms are just a few of the improvements. A 1000 sq. ft. deck overlooking the beautiful meadow is adjacent to a large covered carport providing a spacious outdoor area to both dine and entertain. 2 of the original outbuildings still remain on the property retaining the old farm feel. This is a perfect location for families visiting Elon University as well as an excellent location for a relaxing vacation.

Great for the family
Overall we had a nice visit in the Smith Farm at Elon. The beds were large and comfortable and there was plenty of space to spread out. Lots of different cooking utensils to make meals with and great outdoor space to enjoy the nice weather. I would recommend staying here if have a large family gathering.
We rented this house for a wedding and all of the bridesmaids used it to sleep and get ready. Clint was great to work with and very accomidating. We would definitely recommend this property.
Hello Tyler & Lauren,
Thanks for the favorable review. We are glad that we were able to provide our place to your group and hopefully your wedding weekend is a memory that will last a lifetime.
Best of luck,
Clint & Rebecca York
Highly recommend Smith Farm at Elon! We loved the open floor plan, but with lots of privacy for two bedrooms. You had to walk through one bedroom to get to the "master." The sunroom had two twins, with a glass door. It all worked fine for our family. The decor is charming. "Farmhouse chic!" The house was very clean on arrival, and plenty of linens. The beds were all very comfortable, with ample room for luggage. Our daughter even had room to set up and practice her violin. We cooked our Thanksgiving dinner there, and it worked great. Nice cookware, and lovely dishware. We comfortably seated 6 at the table. At night we appreciated the Roku for entertainment. Comfy couches and chairs. The back yard is a huge area, we were able to play frisbee and run around. Great trees! There's plenty of outdoor seating, witht the outdoor deck and carport--awesome place to hang out!
Clean and well maintaned!
This home is very nice and newly renovated. Linens and towels were newer. The furniture is nice and beds are comfortable. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you may need. Love the close proximity to Elon, would definitely rent again!
Thank you for the favorable review. Our goal with all of our vacation rental properties is to provide our guest with a home that is safe, clean, and cozy so that they share there experience with there friends and family and return again and again. We hope to see yo again soon.

Perfect house, very convenient to the school but far enough way to be quiet
This house was wonderful! It was a girls weekend for 4 Elon Alum who met our freshman year and wanted to go back where it all started to celebrate our 40th birthday! The house was in great shape, plenty of space and was close enough to campus to easily visit but far enough away that it provided a nice quiet setting. The backyard is expansive and full of trees. I (and all of girls) highly recommend this home!
Clean and comfortable
Smith Farm was a beautifully renovated home on a large scenic lot, right in the city, but secluded. Hosts were attentive and accommodating. House was very clean and beds were all comfortable. The only thing that would make this place better would be a fire pit to help guests enjoy the beautiful yard, and a few basic condiments and spices.
