My husband and I were there in the house with my friends not long ago. We picked a bedroom, witch was a downstairs bedroom with a queen bed. Imagine our surprise when we saw that it had glass doors leading to another bedroom, and there was NO LOCK, no privacy at all.

Owner's Response: If the guest would have called us when they arrived we would have been happy to try to remedy the situation right away, we have 24 hour maintenance available. We now have a lock in place & a curtain ensuring privacy. This is the first complaint we have received about the door since we have been renting this home for 4 years now. It is one of the most popular homes in Massanutten and we will ensure to do everything to continue that.

Fall Weekend Family Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice quick getaway! There were 14 of us. 10 adults 4 children. The home was nice, but could use some updates and mantainance. The back deck was small and really not a great view at all. We enjoyed eating together at the large dinning table and watching movies while sitting by the fireplace! For the cost it was perfect for our large family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing a Massanutten Vacation house, and thank you for your review! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in Acorn Lodge. We have been working with the home owner to make flooring, furniture, painting, appliances. It's a very popular vacation house, so we have to find time between rentals to get the work done. If you'd told us you wanted a house with a view, we would have recommended a few. The big back deck (the entire width of the back of the house) has views into the woods behind the house, until the leaves are off the trees. Then there is a view to the ski slopes and mountain. Next time we'll get your family in a house with stunning views! Sincerely, the Massanutten Vacation team

Great Home-We Want to Come Back!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great! It was very spacious- enough room for five families! The kitchen was well stocked-you name it, it was there. We loved the large table because we were all able to enjoy meals together. The deck was nice for sitting and relaxing and the children enjoyed running around getting a bit of fresh air. The home is a short drive from the activities like go-karts and mini-golf. Since we are a large family Acon Lodge was a perfect fit. Everyone was pleased and we are definitely planning a return trip!

The house is great with lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

The layout is unique and spacious. We really appreciated that wood was supplied. It is great to have a fireplace to dry all the boots and gloves. We enjoyed everything from tubing, skiing, boarding, the water park and even the SPA.! Some of us don't do sports, but a massage is fun too. Would definitely stay at this house again. Have stayed at other houses where the 6th bedroom is practically a closet, but NOT this one. All the rooms are great!
