  • Cozy, amazing cottage!!

    "Review Mockingbird Cottage 1/24/16 This is a long overdue review of this beautiful home! I am currently in the “cottage” (which feels much larger than a cottage, but has all the coziness) for the 3rd time. We originally rented it in August 2014 to bring one of our twin sons to college at Cornell, and have come back to visit several other times. This would have been our sixth visit, but the place is so great it gets booked up really fast, so be on your toes! The house is gorgeous with beautiful art everywhere you turn, high end linens on all the beds, and whimsical antique touches throughout. The kitchen is large and fantastic to cook in with all the necessities and more. They have a brilliant cupboard filled with coffees and teas and giant mugs, which is particularly important when you get in at 9pm and there is snow everywhere! The dining room is lovely looking out on the backyard, which is a scene from Currier and Ives in the winter and a breathtaking pastoral wonderland in the summer. Old red barn! The living room is great with a gas log stove, large couches, a bookshelf full of DVDs and another bookshelf full of books! The downstairs has its own family room with two bedrooms which is great for kids. It has a fireplace and TV (which our boys used to set up their gaming system). The master bedroom upstairs has a delicious bed with gorgeous linens and beautiful original built-in wood closets and drawers. Waking up to the gorgeous view of the back acreage is a delight—in the fall it is lush and green, in the winter a carpet of diamond white snow. Of course the landlords of the VRBO houses are what really make the difference between a wonderful stay and a mediocre visit and Suzanne & Tim are wonderful, responsive owners. They live just around the corner and can respond to anything you need help with right away. They are very kind and welcoming and will insure that your stay is delightful!"

  • One of the better properties in the area

    "Nice large home on the lake. Dock/water access is great, with a mini trail on property. Good deal of privacy except for the immediately adjacent homes. Clean house and reasonable host. Myself and my friends (5 families total), and our dog had a great time. Minutes away from the most excellent Busy Bee and the Creamery. West side of Cayuga means that you get easy access to the wineries on the east side of Seneca as well."

  • Peace and quiet and access to Cornell

    "We stayed with family (9 people in total) for a long weekend for Cornell graduation. Our dog was welcome too. House is comfortable and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. We were close enough to Cornell to go back and forth for graduation events. It was also great to have the wonderful peace and quiet of a secluded home. Still there's a market just down the road (about 2 miles or so). Cheryl was prompt in replies throughout the process before and after we made a reservation. Roger came to welcome us just after we arrived and offered assistance with anything we might need. I highly recommend this property for a graduation or vacation rental."

    "First time in upstate NY during the summer and it was beautiful!! Kelli was great and easy to work with. Grounds were beautiful, and house was so cute and spotless! Only downfall was that the house didn't have AC so it was a little hot! Will definitely be back to visit Cayuga Lake!"
