Guestbook comments from the owner

When all ten relatives converge here for graduation -- Aunts, Uncles, and Mom and Dad -- found such a wonderful place to relax and have family discussions and just plain catch up time with the family.... We had perfect weather, barbeques, bonfires, toasting marshmallows. My daughter was commissioned into the Army -- Second Lieutenant, then graduation --WOW. The house was perfect for our guests, plenty of room, movies, bathrooms, and the grounds were great and relaxing. ...Our last night it rained and we had a beautiful rainbow.

Sweet set-up!

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of ten and the house(es) worked out great! Both dwellings provided comfortable accommodations. It's a little bit of a hoof to Sugarbush, but well worth it. We'll be back!

Perfect for Kids

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at the Acorn ridge property. The owners clearly want each guest to feel the love and detail of a perfectly appointed second home. This property had a huge toy stach which was perfect of my sons and their cousins (all under 10) to help keep them entertained.

We would highly recommend that anyone with kids choose this home for their vacation needs!

Thanks for the gerat home!
