SYLVAN BEACH, NY – The Oneida Indian Nation celebrated the grand opening of The Cove at Sylvan Beach. Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter was joined by New York State Senator Joseph Griffo, Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente, Mayor of Sylvan Beach Richard Sullivan, and Principle of Benchmark Development Brian Cohan. Designed for week-long summer getaways with friends and family, The Cove is a new $35 million vacation rental destination on Oneida Lake in Upstate New York, the largest lake in the state, featuring 70 contemporary 2-3 bedroom lakeside cottages and an extensive list of amenities. Each cottage rental includes a personal pontoon boat.
“We are excited for guests to experience The Cove at Sylvan Beach, where they can expect a beautiful brand new property, perfectly located on Oneida Lake with great guest service, amenities and convenient access to several other places to visit in the region,” said Ray Halbritter. “Starting with The Lake House and now The Cove, we have been deliberate with our investments in Sylvan Beach and its transformation into one of Upstate New York’s leading summer vacation hotspots.”
Sylvan Beach Supply Co., The Cove’s flagship store and café, offers additional rentals, including canoes, water bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, bicycles and fishing gear. The café menu has sandwiches, quick bites and a variety of ice cream sundaes and milkshakes. Sylvan Beach Supply Co. is also home to one of the largest candy walls in Upstate New York with 2,000 lbs of candy in 80 different varieties.
The Cove at Sylvan Beach was created in partnership with Benchmark Development as part of the Oneida Indian Nation’s continued investment in Upstate New York and Sylvan Beach, including The Lake House at Sylvan Beach, the Oneida Indian Nation’s beachside dining and entertainment destination.
Accommodations are available at The Cove for this summer and fall.
