Beautiful and historic 1940's home overlooking Hemlock lake and the historic St. Michael's Mission in Conesus. This secluded home is tucked away from it all, and to use an old cliche, is truly off the beaten path. The home was masterfully crafted into the hillside within a wooded area and has a gorgeous view overlooking the other mission buildings, and a stunning back porch vantage point over and across Hemlock lake. It'll take your breath for a moment, and once here you'll surely feel inspired.

The space
Home is mission style, brick, modernized, and tastefully restored with a flare for the artistic. There are original stained glass windows, beautiful paint and woodwork, hardwood floors, and custom baths for that special sort of pampering. Historically the home was used as the nunnery portion of the mission, and while the pictures don't quite tell the story, your visit surely will.

This unique property with it's deep gorges, sloping landscapes, and tumbling brooks flowing into Hemlock Lake, is home to the historic St. Micheal's Mission and other various faith based and benevolent organizations since the early 1900's.

As a visitor here you'll have much to talk about when you step into this timeless place. Please note that Airbnb currently prohibits advertising events

Where you’ll be

Conesus, New York, United States

Mission Road, in Conesus NY, Did we say yet that it is definitively off the beaten path? In case not, here is a synopsis. Unless you live on the road, or are the postman, or the occasional sightseer, there aren't many others who come along, as the road is not a thoroughfare. The neighborhood consist of private single family homes, a beautiful winery, and 6600 plus acres of state land, and the 150 acre nature conservancy, which means lots of deer and wildlife. We have lots of deer who will greet you every day, and so with furry friends like these, we'd say the neighborhood is A-ok!

While this place is fairly remote, and you could easily go a day without seeing other people, the neighbors are not far off and have a love for the place and are ready to share history with those who are inquisitive. Otherwise they'll leave you be. Caretakers and residents are quick to volunteer any available information about the place, though you will be primarily alone. As mentioned there is a lot of history, and there are some resource materials available. We are going to see about posting these here or otherwise finding an easy way to deliver this information to guests: The history is almost something you feel by being here, ever go to a place like that? If walls could only talk...
