While Sylvan Beach on Oneida Lake is already one of the best outdoor vacation spots in central New York, The Cove at Sylvan Beach’s community amenities make it the ideal basecamp for a week of lakeside family fun.

Our heated pool, fire pits, commons areas and playground are for the private use of guests of The Cove, making it as fun to stay on property as it is to explore.

The Cove’s Sylvan Beach Supply Co. is your outfitter for water activity rentals like water bikes, pontoon boats and more. Guests of The Cove can also enjoy free lawn games like horseshoes, cornhole, badminton and more, as well as a dockside boardwalk wrapping the entire water’s edge, with walking paths throughout the property.

Both Sylvan Beach Supply Co. and nearby Maple Leaf Market offer a wide selection of sandwiches, entrees and fresh baked pizzas, as well as ready-to-eat meals from Turning Stone Resort Casino Grab & Go, like our Summer BBQ from Turning Stone’s Tin Rooster Dancehall & BBQ. Guests can also fuel up the car at Maple Leaf Market if they are in need of gas.

The best way to enjoy time at the lake is on the lake. That’s why each of our cottage rentals at The Cove includes either a pontoon boat for swimming, fishing or raising a toast to a perfect day at sunset.
