Property Description

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 to write home!

Home is mission style, brick, modernized, and tastefully restored with a flare for the artistic. There are some 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, a personal visit will.

  • Home is furnished with a basic kitchen setup service for 12, large outdoor bbq grill, TV, microwave, keurig, etc. Basic linens, wifi, electric, water, recycling, and trash are accounted for as well.

This unique property with it's deep gorges, sloping landscapes, and tumbling brooks flowing into Hemlock Lake, was also home to the historic St. Micheal's Mission and other various faith based and benevolent organizations since the early 1900's. The history that happened here is only imaginable today although much has been written about it. On site there are 50 picturesque acres to explore, a pavilion for small or large gatherings, and ample parking. Site could be used for events, although at current the property is only being used for residential purposes, so as a visitor here you'll pretty much have the run of the place while you step into the feeling of timelessness.

While you're here, visit the Hemlock Canadice State forest with it's 6684 glorious acres within walking distance, and another 150 acre nature conservancy directly across the street. (for those nature lovers who really want to get away from it all).

The property may become available for long or short term lease depending on time of year. Could be used for corporate retreats, weddings and wedding parties, or that romantic weekend getaway. Inquire today, you won't be disappointed! As caretakers, we'll work to make your stay here seamless and serene, and of course you'll never forget these views and the hiking on the property.
