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. 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. 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

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

The property may become available for long or short term lease depending on time of year. Could be used for all sorts of or that romantic weekend getaway. Inquire today, you won't be disappointed! We'll work to make your stay here seamless and serene, and if you're the outdoors type, you'll never forget the views and hiking this property.

Home is lightly furnished although current photos don't show it: Kitchenware, bbq grill, towels and bed linens included. Wifi, electric, water, recycling, and trash are accounted for as well. It's pretty much all set!

Guest access
This rental is for the whole convent home. We've included other photos to show various areas of the property and we encourage you to use the property for scenic hiking, photography etc.

Other things to note
Even though this is a large property, it is only being used minimally at this time, so you might feel like there should be other people around, however as it is now, there isn't. It's a large facility, and the convent home sits above it all, and as mentioned, is quite a ways off the beaten path. It's a neat place to hike and be in a natural setting, and is just generally a very tranquil place to be.

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!

During your stay
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...
