Charming turn of the century Victorian house located within walking distance of historic downtown Elkin and minutes from the center of the Yadkin Valley wine country.
Enjoy the charm of a classically constructed original home built for Elkin's first doctor. Relax on the large, inviting wraparound porch and imagine yourself transported back to the early 1900's.
Enter the house to a lovely mix of antiques and modern conveniences. On the main floor is a parlor, formal living and dining rooms, kitchen and family room. The bedroom and bathroom (en suite) on main floor has a large walk-in shower, styled with subway tile. The second floor landing leads to two bedrooms with queen beds, a sitting room with twin bed, and a large full bathroom (complete with towel warmer.)
The porch is a perfect setting to relax after a day of exploring nearby Stone Mountain, Civil War trails, vineyards and antique stores. Visitors seeking more active adventures can raft the Yadkin River or zipline across a local winery.

About Dan O'Connell
Dan and Jackie purchased the Royall Homeplace in July 2007 with the hopes of someday possibly retiring in Elkin. They both enjoy old houses and like to take on challenging projects.
Dan O'Connell purchased this House in 2007
Why Dan O'Connell chose Elkin
The Royall Homeplace immediately captured their imagination and offered lots of potential. After closing on the purchase they immediately set about to restore and maintain the character of this historic house. After years of hard work and lots of TLC they opened the house to the public in late summer 2014. Furnished with an eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories they want guests to relax and feel welcome during their stay. The large wraparound porch is a particular favorite place to relax.

Lovely home conveniently located to shops and restaurants
Anyone who enjoys Victorian architecture / design and antiques would love to stay in this home. The family sitting area was very comfortable and homey. The house was very clean. The owner was most accommodating! Would highly recommend.
Charming, great location, lots of room and great view from the wrap around porch.
We had a great time in this older charming home, plenty of room for couples to enjoy the wine area, close to downtown and nice porch with a good view, porch needs work, better furniture and floor is uneven but we still liked using it.
Lovely home that feels like someone lives there. Stuff in the closets and many decorations so it feels like you are staying at a family members house. It is an old house, so the air conditioning doesn't cool the downstairs bedroom unless you leave the door open. The outdoor swing is hung very high so you would have to be over 6 feet tall to be able to sit in it. House is very close to downtown and we enjoyed walking down to dinner. Many wineries within 15 minutes and even a brewery. I wouldn't recommend house for small children since there are lots of antique furniture and breakable things.
Beautiful house, great stay
Beautiful, and very functional home for a getaway. Close to numerous vineyards and other activities. I will not hesitate to book here again for our next Yadkin Valley escape!
Love location and the comforts of home.
We loved it.
Stayed in this beautiful home for Merlfest. Highly, recommend.
