217 years of history


in the Finger Lakes

Enjoy an opportunity to book this private home and experience living a vacation dream;  the ultimate retreat in laid-back luxury at the historic Reed Homestead.  Spacious sunny rooms with high ceilings, 7 fireplaces and original wood floors.  

The brick exterior is made of bricks prepared in 1803 from the clay in the fields surrounding the home.  Over the years, much love and detail has been paid to the proper restoration and care of this historic beauty.


Nestled on 4 acres, surrounded by farmland as far as the eye can see; hedgerows and the Bristol Mountains in the distance.  It's truly a unique setting situated in the countryside of NY's Finger Lakes. You can find us between Honeoye, Canadice and Conesus Lakes and 35 minutes from Rochester.


Built in 1803, the Reed Homestead private residence is available for bookings of 2 nights or more for you to relax, unwind and get away from it all. Guests love the fresh country air, soft high count linens, tasteful decor and proximity of the homestead.  We are centrally located in the Finger Lakes; we are close to Canandaigua, CMAC, Lincoln Hill Farms, Naples, Gell Writers Retreat, Bristol Mountain, Letchworth State Park, SUNY Geneseo, 2 hours from Niagara Falls and 35 minutes to downtown Rochester.  


Historic charm with modern sensibilities; sleeps 8, with 3 large bedrooms and 2 full baths. The homestead is equipped with wi-fi and all the amenities to ensure you can keep connected.    

Reed Homestead countryside is a favorite setting for special intimate events. 

We focus on rehearsal dinners, writer workshops, weekenders with a private chef option, bridal or baby showers, book clubs, family reunions and a memorable setting for bridal parties to prepare for their special day.
