We had an amazing stay at Shawn's beautiful home. 3 solids days of skiing at Gore Mountain for the teenagers and 3 full days of show-shoeing for the aunts and myself. Shawn's house was fully stocked - great kitchen and comfy beds. We made fires every night in their fireplace and played lots of games. Our dog loved exploring around the property as well. Shawn was extremely prompt with all correspondence - we even had a heating debacle that got resolved immediately. We were so happy to get away and enjoy this wonderful home!


This was the perfect place for a secluded winter wonderland getaway.  The area surrounding the house is so beautiful, secluded and magical.  The house is the natural representation and modern expression of the local area of Lake George with the cozy feeling of home.  The vastness of nature allowing you to reconnect to yourself and the joy of being, amongst the silence without the chaos.  It is in close proximity to the lake and other accommodations.   The owners were very attentive and responsive in making sure the experience was exactly what I was looking for.  If you are looking for an Adirondack experience of nature, purity, fun and excitement I highly recommend you stay at this magical place.


5/5.... 10/10... 100/100.
Doesn't matter what the scale is, Amazing Acorn checked all the boxes. The place was as clean as clean can be. I walked around with socks the entire time, and it wouldn't matter if they were white, they still would have ended up clean at the end of our stay.  EVERYTHING we needed was already there, and anything extra we wanted was a short and beautiful 5-10 minute drive away.  Shawn and Lisa were easy to contact, and quick to answer any questions we had.  They had a TON of suggestions, and every one of them from dinner spots, to fishing, to nice views all worked out great. They allowed us to feel like we were at home.  Beautiful, modern, clean, comfortable, serene.  Not one complaint, and we can't WAIT to go back and stay again, but with the whole family.


If you’re looking for a super clean beautifully updated fully stocked home in the Lake George area this is your house!  This was one of the best homes we’ve rented by far! From all of the backyard activities available, to the use of the kayaks, the fully stocked kitchen and baths,the short scenic walk to Trout lake, the 5 minute drive into beautiful Bolton Landing, 10 minutes to Lake George village.. What more can you ask for?  
The home is situated on a private secluded lot and is in the perfect location for enjoying both privacy and all the activities Lake George has to offer! The owners are super attentive and accommodating! We enjoyed renting a boat at Chic’s Marina and parasailing at Parasail Joe’s.  The week flew by and we are very sad to see it end. We will be back next year to Amazing Acorn and we are so happy to have had the time here!


My family just finished out week vacation at the Amazing Acorn, our first lake trip but def not our last. The house was more beautiful than the pictures shown and included things I don't even have at my own home.  So clean and welcoming. The yard was complete with full barbecue and space for the 8 of us. All toys ( big peoples ) included. On the private beach we sat out and sunned then soaked in a tube floating for hours. Even watched the sunset a few nights.  Looking forward to our fall visit.

We loved staying at 21 Acorn drive. The home was clean and provided us with whatever we needed.  Lots of games activities provided and the area was gorgeous. Sleeping bath and kitchen was very comfortable. Easy access to grocery stores and quaint towns to tour. Would definitely return

We were Shawn's first Airbnb guests! (and I really wanted to keep his place as our family's secret place though I wanted to give him a great review as well!) The house is located close to all the conveniences and excitements which Lake George offers however secluded from the hustle and bustle of the tourist hotspots. Shawn was a great host! He thoughtfully accommodated a couple of advance requests of mine without hesitation. Also he treated us with a couple of local wines and other spirits to welcome us! The house was sparkling clean and excellently maintained. The kitchen was fully equipped, and cabinets were completely stocked, so we were able to travel light! The gas grill, fire pit, outdoor dining table were perfect for us to enjoy the food and each other. The badminton court in the backyard was also a huge plus! What a fun game! The beach was amazingly quiet and family friendly! Even the lake water was so warm to play all day! We were a group with a couple of kids. Kids loved the beach so much, so the first thing they wanted to do as they woke up was to go to the beach and swim! Shawn's private beach was only a 5 min walk from the house and he offered a couple of kayaks and many inflatables for water activities. I was neutral and didn't have any expectation of the place in the beginning but I liked it better and better as I stayed a few days! We are definitely coming back again! Thanks for having us, Shawn!
