The Cove at Sylvan Beach, a new lakeside vacation destination in Upstate New York, is redefining what a summer vacation rental means. A new $35 million lakeside vacation community, The Cove couples the vacation rental model of Airbnb with the world-class amenities of a luxurious resort.   Located about an hour south of The Adirondacks on Oneida Lake, New York’s largest lake, The Cove features 70 beautifully appointed two- and three-bedroom cottages – and each comes with its own private pontoon boat for guests to use for their entire stay! Guests can waterski, go tubing, enjoy fishing, or simply throw the anchor and relax on the lake.  

Additional amenities include 24-hour guest service, a personal fire-pit, a full-sized kitchen, private bedrooms, open-concept living/dining room area, a guest-only heated in-ground pool, a playground and more. The Cove is also dog-friendly.   

An affiliated property of the Forbes Four-Star Award-winning Turning Stone Resort, The Cove’s flagship store, Sylvan Beach Supply Co., also offers a café for guests to enjoy sweet and savory bites, including menu items from some of Turning Stone’s signature restaurants, as well as additional recreation rentals including bicycles, water-bikes, canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, and more. Plus, Turning Stone is only 20 minutes away, so guests can also enjoy our golf courses, restaurants and Skʌ:nʌ́: spa, which was just rated #1 in North America.
