Our property is a short walk(1500 yards) down the road from Lily Dale which is the largest spiritualist community in the world. Our family has deep roots in both Lily Dale and Cassadaga village as the founders of each. The property was bought from the Holland Land Company in 1813 by Icabod Fisher. The house was built in 1879 by my Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather John Fisher. The land that Lily Dale is built on was bought from John in the late 1800's. Corydon B. Turner, one of the original founders of Lily Dale, was my Great, Great, Great Grandfather. The house is an old farm house with a total of 6 Bedrooms and a nursery. You'll find that many of our furnishings date back to the early 1900's and some even to the 1800's. The kitchen table that is still in use was built by my Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather in 1861 as a wedding present for John and Ann Fisher. One of the bedrooms is locked for our personal use. Our home is very cozy and will remind you of a time long past. If you appreciate antiques, you won't be disappointed! We only ask that you please treat our furnishings as your own. I plan to maintain the history for my family and pass this treasure to my children and grandchildren to enjoy in years to come. Our house manager, Kathy, lives across the street and should be easily accessible should you have any problems or questions.
We have a strict limit of 12 people for the house. My property manager lives accross the street and we use this to limit noise and due to the house only having two bathrooms.

Year Purchased: 1813
About: My wife, two children and I live in Franklin located in the Northwest suburbs of Detroit. I work in the area and my wife is a high school counselor and biology teacher who now takes care of our 1 y/o and 3 y/o full time. My family moved to this region from Princeton and were some of the first settlers in this area. The property has been owned by my family and passed down since 1813.
Why Cassadaga, NY, USA:
I have been coming here my whole life and it is a very special place to myself and my family. After the death of my grandmother and mother in close succession, I have inherited the house and have been maintaining it since 2006. We love the place, but it is costly to maintain we and hope to rent it to people who will love and enjoy it as much as we do to help defer some of these costs.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Many of our furnishings date to the early 1900's and later 1800's. You won't find anything in the county with more history than you'll see in our home. The kitchen table that is still in use was built in 1861 by my great, great, great, great, great grandfather. This is likely my most cherished possession. The location is perfectly situated adjacent to the lower of the three interconnected Cassadaga lakes.
