perfect cabin for a short 4 night stay with 2 families, 8 people. pool, hot tub, TVs, and just overall cozy ambiance, makes for a great home away from home during a ski trip. highly recommend, and i will only stay here in the future when going to wisp to ski!

All good!

We loved the home and all the amenities; hot tub, fire pit, and grill. Grill was not clean though. We used foil to cover it. Hair dryer was listed as an amenity, but we had to call to get one, because there was not one in the cabin. Enjoyed the cabin very much. It was very comfortable and we also enjoyed the pool table in the basement. The cabin was a short 4.5 mile drive to Deep Creek Lake which we enjoyed a lot. Visited the lake for swimming, fishing, and also the Discovery Center and aviary. Really liked Ace’s Run restaurant and pub. It was pricier, but worth it. Also tried Archie’s BBQ and the food was good. A grocery store, Shop and Save is in the same community as the cabin. You can also drive to Walmart which is within 10 miles. Really enjoyed having coffee on the wrap around porch. We had a good time.

This is my first time using Vacasa or any other service like this so I didn’t really know what to expect. Great experience! The house was clean and just what I expected, cozy and cabin like yet spacious. What I didn’t expect was the amazing porch. I had coffee out back every morning and it was my favorite part of the house. This house is big, probably more than we needed for four adults and two kids but it felt great to be able to spread out. Even with all the thousands of properties to explore, I am very tempted to rent this exact house again next year.

This house was huge. Plenty of space and clean. Walking distance to supermarket, restaurant, ice cream, etc. hot tub, grill, fire pit, pool table, cable tv... more Just a mile to the boat rentals too. I highly suggest this location!

This house was the perfect size for two families. It is super close to the Wisp Ski resort and other important locations like the grocery store. Yet, it still feels tucked away. It was spacious and very clean. The kitchen was also well equipped. We would stay there again, for sure! Thanks for a great stay.

Super clean, the house smelled really good, comfortable, enough spaces and amenities is thoughtful.

The only complaint was the pool table is too close to the wall, not easy to use pool stick on that side.
Susan D. Sep 2021
Loved staying at this place, just what we all needed. Wish so much we could have stayed longer. It was so peaceful and quiet. Went with adult children and SO’s. Lots of space. I think if there had been a lounge chair on the porch I would have napped there every day. The weather was perfect too! Can’t wait to come back!
Jared D. Aug 2021
We has great time at the cabin. It was clean, perfectly maintained and had everything we could imagine and more. Highly recommend. And Vacasa was available for all our needs.

This house is super clean and organized! I was very happy with it. Unfortunately the bed frames creaked a lot which made too much noise when sleeping or waking up. Anytime we moved the bed frame made noise. This was upstairs and the master bedroom. The refrigerator didn’t cool down for 6/7 hours. We had to wait a long time to start putting our groceries in. We had to buy several bags of ice to cool down our food. There should be a sign on the fridge door to give people a heads up. I had to call the property manager. They responded quickly. Overall it’s a nice house besides those two issues.
Manager response:
Hello Nena, we are glad you enjoyed your stay, and pleased that our team was able to assist you quickly to resolve the issue with the refrigerator
Matt B. Jun 2021
This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. It's very relaxing and the best time is coming out with your coffee in the morning and watching nature. Will be back again at some point.
Jason H. Jun 2021
We loved everything about this house! The location is great as it is near a grocery store, restaurants, activities and the lake, but you would never know it as it is tucked back in the woods in a small community. The house was clean and spacious and had everything we needed for a relaxing family trip.

The only issue we had was that the shower/tub door is the basement would fall off the tracks and also leaked on the floor so we could not use it.
Manager response:
We are glad you enjoyed this location and apologize for the issues you experienced during your stay. We encourage guests to reach out to our property management team directly via the contact information provided in check-in instructions, as our professional, dedicated team is standing by should any need arise. We hope for the opportunity to better serve you in the future!

This house was picture perfect! It was very clean and wonderful, all the amenities of home with a bonus hot tub! My wife and I went here for a quick 2 night getaway for our 10 year anniversary, and we will definitely be going back! We did not want to leave that's how peaceful it was. The only complaint we had was the water in the fridge did not work or maybe was not turned on. We just went down to the store and got some ice though. We also liked how conveniently close to the stores the home was yet was still back in seclusion. Was a very good place to stay. Also there are a few little things such as there should be better instructions on how to operate the hot tub and also the gas fireplace. They are mentioned in the blue book from Vacasa, but that's all no instructions on how to work them. Everything else was perfect!

My friends and I stayed at 5 Little Acorns two weeks ago and I can't stop thinking about it! I even told my husband I want to make this an annual ski trip and stay in this house every time we go. The house was extremely clean, comfortable and had everything you need to stay in all day or come home from a long day of skiing. We left the kids at home this time but I have no doubt they would have loved this place as well. Highly recommend!

this was a wonderful house. it was the perfect size for our 3 small families. it is centrally located yet private and wooded. 5 little acorns was perfectly stocked with any any and all amenities. overall, a great place.
Bruce K. Jul 2020
Had a fantastic time. The cabin was a charm. It was very clean. Very well furnished, and had everything we needed. Would love to go back again next year.
Jay H. Jun 2020
The house is quite nice overall. It sits in a neighborhood, mostly containing other vacation rentals. We heard noise from renters at a nearby house that was disturbing when outside but it was quiet on the inside. This house sits on a nice lot with wooded views and a relatively private back yard. The furniture and beds were fine. The home was clean with two exceptions: the hot tub seemed like it hadn’t been cleaned in a while and many of the utensils and kitchen items had to be washed before use. Overall we enjoyed this house for the four nights we stayed.
Nguyen A. Jun 2020
Everything about this home was perfection! It was very clean. All of the linens were soft, non-scratchy & clean. And we had everything we could’ve needed as far as appliances. It is about a mile to the lake, but it wasn’t warm enough for us to enjoy the lake anyway. But, the location was perfect for a family weekend! I would definitely recommend this place!!

The location was great and the house was beautiful!

Perfect winter getaway before Christmas. Thanks much! All clean and comfortable. Great hot tub, pool table, tv’s. Only negative was the kitchen was a little small but we would love to stay there again as there are many other much more important features.
It is a wonderful place to stay. I recommend it.
James R. Aug 2018
We loved how it was nice and clean. Even though we went on vacation, every night it felt like going to sleep in your own bed. It was so good, we extend our stay by another night.
Christine B. Aug 2018
This house was an incredible find, close to everything, easy to get to, really cool build, quiet and roomy. Loved the inside. Pool table downstairs was nice and loft was a useful addition. The gas fireplace was a little difficult to get lit but once lit, warmed the place up nicely. The wrap around deck was amazing and there was ample outdoor seating options both up and down below the deck.
The biggest challenge was the comfort level of the seating, All of the first floor seating options in the den were uncomfortable and placed a bit of a damper on the overall time we spent at the house. It all needs to be updated for the money we paid to rent for 4 days. Kitchen did not have much in the way of extra supplies for cooking (only salt and pepper),though there was an abundance of cooking pots that were in decent shape. The beds were not super comfy but adequate. Parking area was very nice and level (have rented some places at Deep Creek over the years that were not). Overall great space, but some furniture updates needed to make this one a 5 star.
Manager response:
The owners are aware of the comments regarding the furnishings so they can take them under consideration. Please be advised we do not supply any pantry items. Thank you!

We enjoyed our short stay for couple of days there. Everything was perfect and loved the log home.
Eric T. Jan 2018
This house was everything we expected and more. Very charming - clean - spectacular location and proximity to Wisp - privacy - tons of space for a large group - great amenities - and more! The house was even still decorated for Christmas, which we actually thought was whimsical and added to our stay.
