About the Property

3 bedrooms, two full baths, modern kitchen, eat on the deck overlooking woods.

Converted historic schoolhouse. Huge great room with sitting area and dining area, TV and wifi. 3 bedrooms (2 full and one queen), two full bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, central air conditioning, deck overlooking wooded area. Walk to restaurants, shopping (Walmart, Wegmans, Dept Stores), CMAC, Canandaigua Lake. Popular attractions are: many wineries in the area, Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion, the water park, Canandaigua Lady sightseeing boat and dinner cruise. The city of Canandaigua has many local eateries and neighborhood bars where you will find the locals to be very welcoming. A wonderful farmer's market comes to the city center every Sat morning--find local produce, meats, baked goods and even hand made soaps.

The Schoolhouse is adjacent to Cedar Lodge, student housing, whose laundry room you can use.

This charming old schoolhouse is over 100 years old and has been completely renovated with new electrical, plumbing, central heating and air conditioning. The kitchen has new appliances. There is a gas grill on the deck. As one would expect of a schoolhouse, it is plain but imbues a certain charm. The high ceiling in the living area gives it a spacious and grand feeling. Original doors and moldings add to the historic character. No washer/dryer on the property but there is one next door at the Cedar Lodge and a Laundromat a block away. This is clearly not a boutique hotel, but a plain old house with modest but serviceable furnishings. There is an apartment below with a young couple, but they are quiet and won't disturb you. Their unit sits under your bedroom area and not the living/dining area. Each bedroom has a bed, desk, lamp and chest of drawers. The dining table seats six. The current furniture is a leather sectional and occasional chair, coffee table with two matching end tables, and TV.
The beds are made up with provided linens and sheets and towels are in the bathrooms as well as toilet paper and soap. The kitchen has dishes for 6, mugs, numerous glassware, coffee pot, toaster and microwave. The porch closet has an ironing board and iron, broom and dust pan. If there is anything lacking, the manager can probably help. In fact, we appreciate hearing from you if something is needed.

Car: Necessary

Near FLCC, Lake, Sonnenberg Gardens, downtown shopping and restaurants, shopping malls, water park. Many wineries in area as well as Wine & Culinary Center. Walk to park along lake and bath house at swimming area. Schoolhouse located adjacent to Cedar Lodge student housing whose laundromat you can use. The quaint downtown area has many interesting shops. My favorites are: T Olivers for wonderful infused oils and vinegars & Uncle Sam's for beautiful antiques. Every Saturday there is a Farmer's Market one block off the main street. On first Sat of the month there is a Wine Walk to sample wine at downtown shops. Google downtowncanandaigua for current list of events.

Why the Owner Chose Canandaigua, NY, USA:
I fell in love with the potential of the schoolhouse. It had fine old bones, a slate roof and beautiful original flooring. The location is terrific with walking distance to stores. It's in town but has a nice deck overlooking a creek and wooded area. I had it completely renovated with new heating and air conditioning, insulation, and painted throughout. It has a wonderful atmosphere. It was a Schoolhouse until the 50s and I can visualize the students working away under the tutelage of the school master.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Formerly a one room schoolhouse, it has a wonderful historical warmth and feel. It sits on a knoll and feels peaceful, surrounded by old growth hardwoods. Yet it is very close to everything one needs. Truly 'the chosen spot'.
