Property Description

Welcome to St. Michael's Mission, circa 1925. Come, relax on 50 sprawling & secluded acres. Adjoining 150 acre nature conserve with splendid hiking leads to Hemlock Lake, a privatized & undeveloped finger lake.

St Michael's was originally built as a live in seminary, so the guest rooms of varying size have a dormitory feel with full private baths, and your stay includes a large community kitchen and dining areas.

Taking reservations for solo adventurers, couples, families, big groups.

Located on Mission Rd in Conesus NY, the old St. Michael's Mission is a retired seminary built by and for the Catholic church between 1925 and 1959. During it's peak the school graduated around 400 students, and so you can imagine this as a large facility that has more history than can be shared here.
On the property is a separate home which was originally built in 1940 as a convent and we have been operating this as a guest home since summer 2015, and with great success. (see our other listings) We have now opened the main mission building spaces this year in an effort to save these facilities from the ravages of time. This property, inside and out, is just too spectacular to not be enjoyed to the fullest. Your stay here will directly benefit these premises and what we are doing here is a bit unprecedented. Won't you join us for a stay and see what strikes you here in this most unique place?

If it appears the dates you desire are booked, do not despair, we can most likely accommodate you. Due to the limitations of the Airbnb home sharing platform and listing individual rooms in a large facility we are able to create a new listing for you to place your reservation. Please send us your request for dates and we'd be most glad to accommodate everything from solo adventurers to touring groups.

We are renting private rooms within the facility and until our reservation system is perfected on a room by room basis we are in a sense playing luck of the draw on a first come first serve basis and sharing the space based on group size, not on rooms, and we can accommodate a group of almost any size. We have so much space here that we can at most times anticipate having you come and pick your rooms upon your arrival depending on your needs and desires. Aside from having your private room with full bath, shared spaces typically will include a luxurious kitchen with large attached dining spaces for groups, free self serve laundry equipment, a beautiful chapel, and a small library, We also give tours of the facility where you can see what we are working on as well as learn first hand of the history of St. Michael's Mission.

As your host, I do not reside on the property but am on site daily and love to interact with my guests, give tours of the facilities, talk about the history etc... I also know when it's time to leave the scene and let my guests enjoy their stay. There will be an extra caretaker or two on site at any given time to help you with any needs or questions you may have.

Within walking distance is Eagle Crest vineyards which was once part of the mission property and their endeavors wherein the sacramental wines were produced for churches coast to coast and beyond. Though the winery is a separate and private entity today they still make these wonderful wines.

There is plenty of parking on the property, some covered spaces as well. There is a taxi service or two in the area but little to nothing in the way of public transit like buses or trains etc. Travelers would ideally have their own vehicle, though I am available for airport pickups for large groups etc and sometimes can loan a vehicle for certain uses.

Loads of space !


We had our family reunion at the Mission and it is perfect for us! Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, a stage for our annual play, a large front yard for Kickball and just the right blend of history, mystery and nature. We hiked to the lake and back to the Grottoes and have the scrapes and bee stings to show for it. No worries though, we would and d... Read More

Exactly what we expected


We thought we'd find an interesting old property, perhaps a bit spooky, peaceful, and definitely remote. That's the Mission. The feeling of history was palpable, and we loved exploring the property and finding so much that seemed untouched since mid-century. Our room was appropriately cozy (we got in late and Korey did a great job of explaining how... Read More

Work in progress


Caretaker of property is friendly and conscientious, but is in over his head, trying to rent out and maintain massive former Mission property. Listing implies TV and WiFi; neither are present. Lake access is via difficult scramble through the woods, with no trail present for the precipitous plunge to the shore over the last 500 feet or so. Property... Read More
