In July 2020 the Oneida Indian Nation was joined by local officials in celebrating the grand opening of the much anticipated Lake House at Sylvan Beach. The multi-million dollar redevelopment project in the Oneida Lake resort community provided jobs for more than 150 construction workers and has created another 60 permanent jobs for the area.
“There’s a reason the Oneida Indian Nation chose to invest in Sylvan Beach and not somewhere else, said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Oneida Nation Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “We see the incredible potential this community has to become a top tourist destination in Upstate New York, and we’re confident that the addition of the Lake House will help achieve that goal. We are proud of the fact that this will be the largest investment ever made in Sylvan Beach, and we are certain it will spur even greater investment into the community.”
The Oneida Indian Nation's investment in the Sylvan Beach project continues its legacy of partnerships with, and investments in, local communities.
The Lake House features 100 slot machines, indoor and outdoor lakefront dining options, three bars, an expansive patio, an outdoor area for live entertainment, and an impressive 50 foot tall lighthouse. The Lake House follows the same Safer Together protocols as all Oneida Indian Nation properties, including mandatory face coverings, daily screening of all employees and enhanced cleaning protocols.
