"My family and I had a great experience at the mockingbird cottage! We went to New York for a wedding in Ithaca. We were so close to everything. The cottage was cozy, peaceful and had beautiful landscaping which made it nice to relax outback on the deck! The cottage made us feel like at home. It's provided with plenty of blankets, pillows, towels etc. that we didn't have to worry about traveling with all the extra stuff, which was very nice! If you want to experience the beautiful NY mountains and see the amazing water falls, the mockingbird cottage is a great place to stay!"

Do not miss this house- GREAT-especially for GRADUATIONS at IC and CU!!!!
"We were two families attending Cornell Grauation and rented this house to provide us more room and ability to get together and enjoy some time away from the busy campus. It was beyond our expectations. The house is filled with everything you would need. Cheryl was totally accessable with any questions I had (everything is organized and marked so there really shouldn't be any). The drive to Ithaca-CU- is about 1/2 hour. It was not bad and your GPS make take you on an out of the way route - on a dirt road for a bit- don't get nervous- it is correct!
There is a lovely fire pit that we used in addition to the outdoor grill. Also an outdoor ping pong talbe. Had s'mores and FUN!
The property is beautiful and my mother-in-law loved sitting on the deck enjoying the view.
There is lots of space for sleeping and the house was spotless!
I cannot recommend this property enough. I am confident you will love it like we did! If we get the chance we want to go back and stay here again. Thanks Cheryl!!!"

"This was just a delightful place to stay. I have stayed at several VRBO properties in the past and this one is tops! The house has everything you could ever think of. It is designed for people of all ages. Our dog loved the pond and the area hiking in the gorges. The house was fully stocked and well labeled so any questions you had were immediately answered. Sam was very courteous and easy to deal with. Great place to sit outside, relax and enjoy all the nature around you. We have already discussed coming back in the fall."

"This beautiful lake home is brand new and furnished with top end amenities including leather reclining sofa and reclining chairs. The bedroom has beautiful dark cherry furniture... And it has the most well appointed kitchen we've ever seen in a rental...A real luxury. The house is spotless, I have never stayed in such an immaculately kept home.
The location is private and peaceful with mesmerizing lake views, yet close to Ithaca and Cornell.
We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return.
