Winslow, a developer of The Lake House on Canandaigua, a luxury hotel that opened last year on the lake in Canandaigua, recently purchased the marina from William Pellicano. 

“As a member of the community, it was important for me to have the new owner invested in this region and dedicated to enhancing the property,” Pellicano said in a statement about the sale of Pelican Point Marina on the east side of the lake, 5.5 miles from Canandaigua.

“With the opening of The Lake House on Canandaigua at the north end of the lake, our community is quickly emerging as a national destination. My family and I have loved owning Pelican Point, and I’m working closely with Matt on a smooth transition to ensure our team members and customers understand his plan to enhance the marina operation and build out new amenities for our patrons.”

Winslow is a founder and managing partner of Long Weekend, developer of a growing portfolio of independent luxury boutique hotels and resorts in the U.S. and Bahamas.

“We are bullish about the community of Canandaigua,” Winslow said this month in a phone interview about plans for Pelican Point. Pellicano recognized increased demand for the marina and potential to “take it to the next level,” Winslow said. 

What would that look like?

“Not an extension of The Lake House,” Winslow emphasized. While there currently is no master plan, the vision is to maintain the rustic character of the marina and its upland, wooded acreage. In all, the property covers about 40 acres in the town of Gorham, most of it woodland behind the marina, along with a little over an acre of lakefront.

Ideas being floated include adding showers and restrooms, and “a nice dock over the water,” Winslow said, along with possibly some “low density” employee housing. He mentioned other ideas such as adding parking and boat storage areas and installing crosswalks. 

“We will work with the town and community to see what they want,” Winslow said.

General Manager Dennis Gonnella III, who has been at Pelican Point for 11 years, said demand for marina services has grown dramatically, especially over the past two seasons. He said the wait for a boat slip is between two and a half and three years.

Pelican Point is a full-service marina offering both seasonal wet and dry storage and launch services, on-water fuel and a service center for both boats and personal watercraft such as Jet Skis, along with detailing, winterization, and off-season covered storage.

Gonnella, general manager for the past four years, said the marina had averaged about 400 winterizations a season before the pandemic, when demand jumped to about 460 last winter.

Currently, the marina has fewer than 10 full-time staff, which includes three technicians —  David Mills, service manager, Jeff Whitcomb and Joe McKerlie; along with a general manager and assistant manager. Additional staff are hired during boating season.

Mills is known for his expertise with Jet Skis. A Navy veteran who had a long career with Chevy, Mills said his family has been in boating for years, working on personal watercraft and owning them. “It used to be a hobby, which turned into a business,” he said.

Gonnella said Pelican Point works on personal water craft from all over including Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the Adirondacks among other places. The marina once handled under 20 and now works on closer to 200.

Winslow said he plans to maintain the staff with the potential of adding more employees.

“Dennis and his team have built a special place,” he said.
