About Korey Buzzell
I am a husband, father of five, obsessive carpenter/builder, hobbyist pilot, entrepreneur, and most importantly a believer in the divine providence that is and was embodied by the creator of this world. Go ahead, ask me why?
Why Korey Buzzell chose Conesus
I discovered this wonderful place in the spring of 2015 when my wife and I learned that the current caretakers were going to move away. This left the mission with very few folks to care for it. I love history and so found myself researching almost every day, and still find myself digging for more information here. The history intrigues me, and so I encourage guests to see what they can find! I'm most willing to share what I have learned via email or personal tours.
What makes this Estate unique
It's quiet and peaceful, and nature abounds. Could one ask for anything else?
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
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.
Great place for the family
We came with our family and grandchildren. It was perfect for our needs. Having the large playroom with toys and the large kitchen made it enjoyable for us and the children. We enjoyed the quiet and seclusion of the Mission. It wasn't like staying at a hotel and not as orderly as you would expect a hotel to be, but it was great for our needs. It met all of our expectations.
Unique personal retreat space
St Michaels Mission is an amazing place. The architecture, grounds, and energy are unique and were the perfect setting I needed for a personal retreat to work on quiet contemplation and business planning. I had everything I needed. Wi-fi in my room was great and I was even able to log in to Netflix on the tv in my room. This mission had everything I needed and was very clean. It is a work in progress and reminded me of the years I spent at our family cottage - mix 'n match plates and linens, etc. but I was very impressed at how clean and comfortable the space was. I have to mention that because I was alone on the second floor, it was a bit spooky after dark, but not threatening. With others around, it would be much more comfortable. Korey does everything to make the stay welcoming and I really appreciated the tour of the church and other buildings. I am considering the Mission as the venue for a yoga retreat so I was definitely impressed. If you are looking for a unique getaway with peace and quiet - choose this space.
We were a group of 12 moms and were looking for a place to hold our annual weekend get-away. St. Michael's Mission was so much more than we had expected. We kayaked on Hemlock Lake, hiked through the woods, sat on the front lawn and read, walked through the Grotto's, watched the ND game, cozied up to a roaring campfire, walked to Eagle Crest Winery(twice), and cooked and ate GREAT food. The history of the mission is spellbinding and the location and uniqueness were perfect for our needs. Korey was a wonderful host and answered all our questions VERY quickly. We will definitely be back and can't wait to see the place again. Thank-you for everything Korey!
A great place for me and my group!
This worked out so great for our little group of 15 adults convoying in 4 cars. We all knew the mission house was dormitory style and enjoyed our time there.
Korey was very helpful and did anything and everything possible for our needs - especially a midnight call to unclog a toilet!
We had a full kitchen that accommodated us for breakfast and dinner. We couldn't all sit at one table but for some of us we didn't mind standing and eating. We took turns for others to sit after awhile. The bedrooms (mostly quite big) and bathrooms are as described however the bathroom my wife and I were using needs some work done but still useable. I know a couple of the bathrooms were in great shape. Overall the place was quite clean.
There is no HVAC system - each room has an air-conditioner or a portable electric heater. Overall the mission house still needs work - this is not a hotel/motel style nor will you get that type of service. There is one man on duty that takes care of the place and Korey has his hands full.
Unfortunately we were only there for two nights and didn't have sufficient time to spend and explore the St Michael acreage but we did visit the Eagle Crest Winery.
Please be aware I'm giving this a 4 star rating because it really met our needs and wants.
I used to live there so it was just a trip down memory lane.its a work in progress. lots of things still left to do but very enjoyable. Korey is an excellent host and you won’t find any better place for reunion get together or just a time out.
