The space
Our guests love that the homestead dates back to 1803 and marvel that there are high ceilings and truly spacious rooms that allow you to spread out or gather together and be completely relaxed. Recharge, rejuvenate and explore at this special setting. Plan a working vacation from the homestead with high speed internet (Spectrum) and plenty of choice space to make your daily work environment a pleasure. Ask us about Private Chef, Wellness and Curbside pick up.

Enjoying travel & entertaining ourselves, we've appointed our favorite comforts to make your stay memorable.

Layout of the First Floor:
There is a well equipped/stocked kitchen/great room combination which is ideal for entertaining. There is a wood burning stove for cozy autumn and winter nights as well as a large flat screen tv with spectrum cable, smart tv ix and a blue ray. Additionally on the 1st floor there is the living and dining room that are both spacious and separated by the main foyer - allowing a nice flow. We have board games, cards and a baby grand piano. There is also a full bath of the first floor.

Layout of the Second Floor:
There are 3 bedrooms and a full bath. The 2 front bedrooms are very spacious, each with a Queen size bed. The 3rd bedroom is also large, similar to an L shaped studio apartment. It has the queen bed and 2 single beds with lots of space in between. There is also a flat screen tv with roku and netflix in this room and back stair case. Each bedroom has a decorative fireplace.

As a life long collector of interesting furniture, books and curiosities, I've carefully curated them throughout the house to enhance its beauty. On lovely days, having the windows open and the fresh country breezes flowing in with scents from the garden is a real treat! Also, have no fear, we are realists and do have air conditioners in each bedroom and in the kitchen area for those days that are just too hot for open windows! The beauty and simplicity transports you away to be off the grid, all the while there is wifi and netflix!

Near the homestead, you can enjoy wonderful walking trails on Honeoye Lake, Hemlock Lake, Conesus Lake, and paddle on Canadice Lake. Letchworth state park is 35 minutes away and amazing with its waterfalls and gorgeous trails. Bristol Mountain skiing, downhill and cross country along with aerial adventures in spring/summer/fall is 20 minutes from the homestead. A budding craft beer trail through Honeoye, Naples, Bloomfield and Conesus/Livonia dotted with wineries and cider houses.

Take a breath of fresh air, enjoy simple pleasures and get away in style. We welcome you to our home.

Guest access
Guests have access to the homestead and the spacious property which is ideal for lawn games and lounging.

We have a separate out building on the property which is our garage where guests have access to the outdoor furniture cushions and waste disposal and 2n driveway.

Other things to note
Guests love the homestead for the historic features, but also the modern touches that make for a luxury stay. Nearby, there are fantastic park trails to enjoy. Our section of the Finger Lakes is less populated, so guests have really enjoyed the opportunity to safely social distance while being outdoors and in the many dining options that offer well spaced indoor dining and outdoor dining.

As weddings begin again in 2021 in wester NY, the house is the perfect spot for a wedding couple to get ready on their special day and a great backdrop for a photoshoot. We have also hosted many groups who are attending the popular nearby barn venues.

While we're honored with the many inquiries to request celebrating a small wedding or vows at our home or on the property, we do not permit weddings at the property no matter what size. We believe that a couples wedding is one of the most special days in their lives, and we do not have all the amenities to service a wedding. We do however have references for venues nearby, and happy to suggest where you can host your wedding if you are interested.

The property is super special and invite guests to enjoy it as their home away from home while attending a nearby wedding. Bridal couples, wedding guests (up to 8) have enjoyed their stay with us to help make the wedding weekend extra special.

Location

Livonia, New York, United States

The homestead is situated on the town line between Honeoye and Livonia, making it easily accessible to either town.

East of the house (5 minutes) is the Hamlet of Honeoye which has Sandy Bottom Beach at the top of the lake, Harriet Hollister Recreation Center at the far end of the lake which is fantastic for hikes. There are also 2 nature center walk/hike areas and the Mill Creek Restaurant and Cornerstone Market both of which have wonderful fresh daily offerings.
Winter or Summer there are outdoor activities for every enthusiast.
Bristol Mountain is also nearby, offering skiing and summer zip line, and is 15 minutes from the homestead.
Canandaigua and Naples are both 15-20 minutes from the house and lovely spots to spend the afternoon shopping, eating or at the lake. Both have wineries.
Geneva is a scenic 40 minute drive where you can enjoy beautiful wineries and gourmet dining.

To the west of the house is the town of Conesus and Lakeville (about 10 minutes). Letchworth State Park (voted the best state park in the country in 2015) is 25 minutes from the house; the grand canyon of the east with waterfalls, hiking, biking etc. At the edge of the park is the town of Dansville, which hosts the most spectacular hot air balloon festival Labor Day weekend, and is a short drive from the house. Wineries and breweries dot the area , coupled with antiquing and exploring. The beach at Conesus lake is a great place to spend the afternoon and there are rentals for boats, kayaks, casual restaurants and entertainment.

Both Honoeye and Conesus celebrate July 4th with the "Ring of Fire" on the lake.

Our guests have enjoyed exploring, but most often relaxing, creating amazing meals and star gazing right at the Homestead.
