Oneida Indian Nation’s Lake House at Sylvan Beach Brings Jobs, Tourism Development to Region
Opened in 2020, The Lake House at Sylvan Beach features 100 slot machines, indoor and outdoor lakefront dining options, three bars, an expansive patio and an outdoor area for live entertainment. With a contemporary rustic design, The Lake House also features a 50 foot tall lighthouse, a beautiful addition to the Sylvan Beach shoreline.
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.
The Oneida Indian Nation’s investment in the Sylvan Beach area 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.”
– Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente Jr.
“As everyone is aware, the business of resort industry is a challenging one, not only in our area but in other areas. Sylvan Beach appreciates the substantial investment that Ray Halbritter and the Oneida Indian Nation has made to our community.”
– Greg Horan, mayor of Sylvan Beach
“This is the latest chapter of the vision of the Oneida Indian Nation, striving for excellence and being great neighbors and great at their industry in everything they do. And we look forward to the future and the very next opportunity to do this yet again with the Oneida Indian Nation.”
– Greg Lancette, president of the Central-Northern New York Building and Construction Trades Council
