Oneida Indian Nation's Lake House at Sylvan Beach Brings Jobs, Tourism Development to Region 

On July 27 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.

  • "This is something we envisioned, along with many other aspects of our settlement in 2013, that we can work with the Oneida Nation and expand and continue to invest in what this great land has to offer,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr. “Today is another historic day in the annals of Oneida County because of what everyone here has done. To the Oneida Nation, again, congratulations on another successful venture here at the Lake House.”
  • “As everyone is aware, the business of resort industry is a challenging one, not only in our area but in other areas,” said Greg Horan, mayor of Sylvan Beach. “Sylvan Beach appreciates the substantial investment that Ray Halbritter and the Oneida Nation has made to our community. The Lake House is going to be part of our history for a long time to come.”
  • “This is the latest chapter of the vision of the Oneida Nation, striving for excellence and being great neighbors and great at their industry in everything they do,” said Greg Lancette, president of the Central-Northern New York Building and Construction Trades Council. “And we look forward to the future and the very next opportunity to do this yet again with the Oneida Nation.”

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.
