SYLVAN BEACH, N.Y. – Local leaders came together for the opening of The Lake House entertainment venue Sylvan Beach on Monday.
The Lake House has 100 slot machines, as well as indoor and outdoor dining options.
Sylvan Beach Mayor Greg Horan says he hopes this will be another attraction to the village.
“What's that saying? When the tide goes up, all the ships rise. I think that's the way they're looking at it. I think they see it as a positive thing. The more people that come to our beautiful village -- we've got world class sunsets; we've got other great restaurants and locations. I think it's just another beautiful destination here,” he said.
Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter and Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente were also at the grand opening.
As with all other Nation properties, The Lake House will enforce safety requirements like wearing a mask and social distancing. Based on new state mandates, customers will also have to order food with alcoholic beverages.
Guests at The Lake House must be over 18.
