The Story Behind Home Coming

Long ago when North Bridge was a one lane dirt street a young couple bought land a what was then the very Northern end of Elkin, a place that was considered at that time to be an almost remote country location. The time is…1923... A successful young dentist and his wife planed and dreamed of a wonderful unique home that would be beautiful and stand the test of time. The fruition of their dreams was a classic arts and crafts bungalow made of stone from ….. and unique and exquisite features new to the area and the period and time. Observe the Intricate rock work and with light colors granite jack arches over the windows around the doors, coin corners and roll bands accenting darker stone, the facial gables done in creek stone and the grape vine mortar pattern.


Home is the heart of life
where we feel at ease.

"Last year I took my mother on a wine country tour for a couple days after Christmas to celebrate one of her milestone birthdays. There are so many places to visit in the area. I am so glad we stayed at the Homecoming House. The house was really decked out for the holidays which gave us lots of neat photo opportunities. All the bathrooms and facilities were super clean. Each bedroom had a unique charm and my bed and blankets were very comfortable. There was so much food for breakfast too and it was all delicious. At night, we were able to lounge around in the parlor and even store our leftovers in the fridge. I'm a late-night snacker so I appreciate that. Plus, the wi-fi connection was fast and convenient so that was important since I was able to take care of some business at night. I look forward to staying at the Homecoming House again when I come to Elkin. Thank you Deborah and Sam for making our stay so memorable."
