St. Michael's Mission, 2nd Floor

Family-friendly vacation home in Conesus with water park
Welcome to St. Michael's Mission, circa 1925. Come, relax on 50 sprawling & secluded acres. Adjoining 150 acre nature conserve with splendid hiking leading to Hemlock Lake below, an undeveloped sanctuary / preserve, and 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, however this listing is designed for larger groups. If your group is six or less please talk to us before booking as we may decline smaller reservations and ask that you book our "Small Group" listing ID 1104382.

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 annually, 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 listing ID: 728771) We have now opened the main mission building spaces 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 booking and home sharing platforms 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 sharing 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 by rooms, and we can accommodate groups of large sizes. 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 large eat in kitchen with large attached dining spaces for groups, no cost self serve laundry equipment included, 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 reside on the property and am on site daily and love to interact with my guests, give tours of the facilities, talk about the history, and show you where to hike. I also know when it's time to take a hike myself as our guests enjoy their stay. There are additional caretakers on site to help you with any needs or questions you may have.

Within walking distance is O' Neh Dah and Eagle Crest vineyards which was once part of the mission estate and their endeavor,s wherein 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 means of transport, though we are available for airport pickups and may loan vehicles and/or drivers in certain situations. Whatever the case may be, we want our guests to feel at home here as this is a very unique place in the world, a sanctuary, like no other. What will your story and experience be here at the mission?

4/5 Good

Beautiful area!! Interesting history of the Mission.
The Mission facility is exactly as described in the write-up. The room sizes and kitchen allowed for a lot of privacy for our family.

5/5 Excellent

A fun adventure!
We were so excited to stay here to learn about the history and explore the buildings and property. Korey was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We look forward to coming back to visit again!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely and interesting place
This is a unique property well worth the stay. Caretakers are kind and accessible.

3/5 Okay

Interesting Stay
The history of this place is interesting and the property was even more interesting. The accommodations were adequate for our large party, but the place could really use some work. The showers were basically cold, there were spiders everywhere and some of the spaces were slightly creepy. The price couldn’t be beat though and it was a unique place to stay for sure. Not sure I would go back again with knowing they addressed some of the issues I mentioned.
