Why This Brand-New Lakeside Vacation Spot in Upstate New York Should be Your Summer Getaway Destination

Planning a lakeside summer vacation is a choice you won’t regret—it may seem like an obvious one for someone living in New England, but there’s much more to it than that. When you stay lakeside for your summer vacation, you’re met with great options for entertainment, relaxation, and quality time with friends and family. And, when you stay at The Cove at Sylvan Beach, Upstate New York’s brand-new cottage-style lakeside resort on Oneida Lake, those options are endless.

Whether you’re looking for a family retreat after the school year, or a week of golfing and boating with friends, The Cove has what you need—it’s simple yet luxurious, private, and you’ll never run out of things to do. Here’s what you can look forward to.

Your very own pontoon boat
