About Sally Port View
A modern event center located in scenic Northern New York
Welcome to Sally Port View
The owners are from Three Mile Bay and have a family history of military service. As locals, they realized the potential of the beautiful land on the waterfront and wanted to share it with others while starting their own business. They used the architecture of a sally port as the foundation for the viewing tower and to provide a grand entrance. Sally ports are guarded entrances to secure keeps – the most prominent example would likely be at the US Military Academy at West Point, where cadets live in barracks accessible by sally ports. The owners wanted to honor their military lineage and used the concept of a sally port to define the guests’ experience while arriving at Sally Port View.
Sally Port View is situated on Lake Ontario near the Thousand Islands region of the St. Lawrence River. Located an hour and a half north of Syracuse, 30 minutes from Canada, and 15 minutes from the closest airport (Watertown International).
The venue is located in the Town Of Lyme, which got its name from the fossil-filled limestone bedrock it sits on. You can see evidence of this in the fossils embedded in our rock shore. This formation of bedrock also created a rare habitat of Alvar grassland just miles from our site called the Chaumont Barrens.
Three Mile Bay is a secluded inlet and remains relatively calm compared to the greater Lake Ontario. These waters are renowned for fishing and water sports.
