Some personal reflections…

We had our wedding at the Parks Alumni House and everyone told us that it was the best one they had been too. Our family stayed in the house with us, keeping it very personal and intimate. It would not have been the same anywhere else. We may even have to bring the family back for our one year anniversary!

We want to thank the Parks Alumni House Staff for making our wedding a day to remember. We enjoyed the beautiful rooms, all of the attention to detail and the help that was provided the entire weekend. We cannot wait to stay again for our anniversary!

Everyone at the Parks Alumni House was wonderful! I had little to no stress getting ready for our wedding thanks to everyone, and our stay in the Conley Room was excellent.

We want to thank all of the staff at the Parks Alumni House for everything they did to make our wedding so special. The Parks Alumni House was the perfect place for our wedding! The gift of the Alumni House China plate was also a perfect momento to remind us of our special day.

My first time lodging at the Parks Alumni House was very comfortable. I enjoyed the elegance and the homey feel of it, unlike a hotel. I would not change my experiences at all!

My stay in the Phillips Room at the Parks Alumni House was outstanding in every way.  Everything was perfect and very clean. This house has always been my favorite mansion on Tompkins Street.

We got the chance to stay in the Rist Room and we very much enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was very comfortable and better than any hotel!

We stayed in the Conley room at the Parks Alumni House and it was a fantastic experience. The house is beautiful and we loved the original wall paper, bathroom and tub! Everything was beyond our expectations!

“We can’t thank you enough for making our wedding everything we hoped it would be! It was absolutely perfect, and all of our friends and family had a great time. Thank you for the thoughtful card and coffee mugs that will remind us of our time at the House! We hope to see you again, maybe an anniversary party next summer?! Thank you for a beautiful wedding.”

“What a Fantastic stay! We enjoyed everything about the house. Stay the way you are and don’t ever change. Our son is going to Cortland and we passed this house twice. Scott remembered it and researched it online and decided to surprise me. What a wonderful surprise! We loved it here and will definitely be back!”

“My daughter Emily and I stayed at the Parks Alumni House B&B this past weekend. It was our first time at a B&B and the experience was everything I had hoped it would be. Outstanding accommodations and staff. We will be back soon!”

“We really enjoyed our time spent at the House. Although, it was too short. Next time, I will certainly make arrangements to spend more days.  We truly enjoyed everything you have to offer. We appreciate the dinner reservations and time spent with an old professor of ours.  I spoke with my classmates from the Campus School, at our Camp Huntington Reunion, and told them all about the Alumni House. And what a good idea it is, for us (who no longer live in Cortland) to make arrangements and stay at the Alumni House, the next time we get together.”
