SYLVAN BEACH, N.Y. — The Oneida Indian Nation says the grand opening of the Cove at Sylvan Beach is scheduled for May 21, 2022, ahead of Memorial Day weekend.

The $25 million venue will open at the former Mariner’s Landing Marina within the Oneida reservation in the village of Sylvan Beach.

The Oneida Nation is working with Great Barrington, Massachusetts–based Benchmark Development on the project.

Designed for weeklong summer getaways with friends and family, the Cove is a $35 million vacation-rental venue on Oneida Lake. It includes 70 two- and three-bedroom lakeside cottages and amenities.

The Cove’s lakeside cottages are dog-friendly and available for weeklong rentals during the summer season, the Oneida Nation said. Early summer rates for a weekly cottage rental start at $2,485 and weekly rates during peak season start at $3,885.

“We have meticulously designed this new property to ensure every inch of every cottage and every amenity is perfect for any size group wanting to find the perfect summer getaway,” Ray Halbritter, Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO and Oneida Indian Nation representative, said in a release.

The Cove will also include Sylvan Beach Supply Co., the venue’s flagship store, which will offer daily rentals of pontoon boats, bicycles, paddle boards, kayaks, canoes and water bikes.

The market-style store will also offer ice cream, grab-and-go sandwiches and other food items, groceries, beer, sundries, fishing poles, and tackle, the Oneida Nation said.
