Our busy season runs roughly from early June through mid-August, where advanced bookings tend to be for week-long stays (Saturday-to-Saturday). However, we will definitely book less-than-a-week if there happens to be an opening. Give us a quick call to ask. Also, any last-minute cancellations will be advertised on Mockingbird's Facebook and Instagram pages, so be sure to follow us on social media so you can pounce on those!
During Spring, Fall, and Winter, we accept any length of stay! :)

Because of our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. The more notice you give us of your cancellation, the better for both parties.
30 days or less notice — deposit is forfeited
31-100 days' notice — deposit will be refunded upon rebooking of your cabin for the entire reservation, less a $50 cancellation fee.
Greater than 100 days' notice — the deposit is refunded, less a $50 cancellation fee.
We have a 12-stall boat dock with slips 11’x28’ and yes, it can accommodate double-decker pontoons! Yay! You'll receive a key to a locker located on the dock, too. There is also a fun swim deck with cool steps down to the water’s edge; a fish-cleaning station; and electricity for each stall. Launch your boat at George's Cove, located directly across the cove from our boat dock. There you'll find a Corps of Engineers' public access concrete boat ramp and courtesy dock. Boat stall assignments are first-come first-served for parking stall choices. Boat trailer parking is located on the resort premises.
Quiet Hours are in effect from 10PM to 7AM.
All cabins are nonsmoking. We have provided butt buckets (ash cans) outside of each cabin.
Day visitors during the slower, non-busy, non-summer season are $10/each, must be preapproved by the office, then registered upon arrival where they will be given parking directions.
During the busy summer season when we are full, no day guests allowed. (Our facilities, cabins, pool, dock, pavilion, grounds & parking lot are for registered guests only -- This is to protect the security & comfort of our guests.) So please feel free to meet up with any non-Mockingbird friends at another location such as out on the lake, at your favorite eatery in town, or at their place of lodging...just not here.
***Exceptions to this policy are made for returning Mockingbird guests who have been here before and have a rapport with the owners. In this case, please inquire in the office.
Please call for our pet policy. Dogs must meet certain criteria, and there are a few specific Pet-Free cabins, so call (870) 491-5151 for specifics. Approved dogs are $10 per day per dog.
***Anyone found with an unauthorized pet, more people than stated occupancy, or otherwise ignoring policies will be asked to leave with no refund.***
WITH THAT SAID, WE SINCERELY THANK ALL OF OUR RETURNING GUESTS FOR THEIR PATRONAGE, AND WE WARMLY WELCOME ALL NEW GUESTS WHO HAVE CHOSEN TO COME TO MOCKINGBIRD BAY RESORT!
