New 4 bedroom 2 bath penthouse suite with fantastic views of Sylvan Beach
Located in the heart of the beautiful fun filled resort village of Sylvan Beach, this 4 bed 2 bath third floor suite overlooks the lake and village. The owners working with an architect, building engineer, general contractor and renown decorator restored this historical building, which was originally a Post Office in circa 1870. They renovated the old third floor boarding house in 2017 to create a luxury apartment in the sky. Sleeps 6+ adults/children. Walk to beach, restaurants, and the famous Amusement Park.
It’s a beach atmosphere here and the flooring, colors, furnishings and decoctions reflect the beachy theme as you can see from the pictures. The panoramic views from this tallest building in the resort are spectacular. The view includes Oneida Lake in the front, Erie Canal in the back and village restaurants and entertainment to either side. A renown local decorator, Rosanne Smith, worked with the owners to detail the apartment furnishing and finishing. There are double beds in two bedrooms and Queen Size beds in the two master bedroom suites. One master bedroom suite has its own bathroom, featuring a dramatic ceramic tiled shower area. The second full bathroom is large and has nice view of the canal.
This luxury apartment/condo is housed in an historic building with Greek columns making it an iconic center for the resort. The bottom floor is the home of the famous newly renovated Pancake House restaurant.
The penthouse condo kitchen includes granite counter tops and new stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a new clothes washer/dryer. The huge covered porch overlooking the village and Oneida Lake includes luxurious outdoor furnishing for dining and relaxing. The sunsets over the lake and the sunset view from the penthouse is breathtaking. This amazing view from the historic, tallest beach building buttressed with the Greek columns includes direct oversight of the popular “What’s the Scoop” Ice Cream Shop!
If you need additional space or want to scale down there is also a two-bedroom condo on the second floor. This condo is also fully renovated and has a huge covered furnished porch overlooking the resort and lake.

Why Lynn Cifonelli chose Sylvan Beach
We bought this building because we saw the potential to make this building shine again. We are from the area and Lynn's father Joe Rizzo has owned What's the Scoop Ice Cream shop for the last 22 years. With family around it was an easy decision to make. Now we have added an brand new third floor condo/apt with its own covered porch over looking Sylvan Beach. In addition there are 2 apartments on the second floor which are available for rent as well!
What makes this Condo unique
Located in the Heart of the Resort. Walk to all attractions, clubs, restaurants and the beach.

Everything was beautiful, and just as shown in the photos. We especially loved sitting outside on the balcony together at night after a day on Sylvan Beach. It was in the perfect location, right in Main Street in the middle of everything. The apartment was fresh and clean, and we really enjoyed our visit.
Thanks for staying with us and the review. You were our first visitors and especially appreciate that you were the perfect guests! Love to have you back again. !!
We stayed in the apartment while attending my son's graduation from Syracuse. It is about 35 minutes from campus - far enough to relax as a family but close enough to go back and forth from events without a problem. The pancake house was fantastic and everyone was super helpful with information and logistics. It would be a fun place to stay in the summer!
Wow! What a beautiful condo. We spent six nights here and none of my five family members wanted to leave! What a great central location to many things in CNY. The kids enjoyed being across from the Sylvan Beach Amusement Park and Beach area. We all had a great time and look forward to returning!
Walking distance to amusement park and just steps to public beach. Many restaurants and shops within blocks ! Just park and walk. Bikes and Golf carts can be rented within block of condo
