Dennis Port, MA Acella Construction Corp., hosted a groundbreaking on an oceanfront meeting and wedding venue and rooftop bar at the Pelham House Resort. The estimated construction cost for the project is $5.5 million.

The two-story steel-framed structure with Cedar Impressions shingle siding will be home to an oceanside event venue, complete with a rooftop bar and restaurant space overlooking the Nantucket Sound. The new facility will share grounds with the Pelham House Resort.

The Pelham House Resort has a time-honored tradition of offering the utmost in hospitality, beginning in 1997 when Bob McCarthy, owner of an insurance and real estate firm, moved his family from Melrose to the Cape and began the second phase of his career by acquiring the Pelham House. McCarthy soon transformed the venue into a vacation and wedding destination.

Over the course of the next decade McCarthy continued to improve and expand the Pelham House Resort and in 2007 sold it to Boston Group Development, with his son John staying on as general manager of the facility. In late 2018, John McCarthy, in partnership with Dennis Leary and Frank Hursey, brought the Pelham House Resort back in the family, taking ownership of the venue that over the years has seen many updates and renovations.

Extensive hotel and lobby renovations were completed earlier in the year and with the October 7th groundbreaking, the renowned Pelham House Resort is well on its way to boasting an oceanfront meeting and wedding facility equal to none.

Acella Construction will oversee the 37-week project, conducting site work and ground-up construction. Once completed the new facility will feature a NanoWall glass system that opens to the rooftop deck; other features include IPE wood decking and a KONE ReVolution elevator system.

DJSA Architecture PC is the architect for the project.

“This is a dream project and one we are thrilled to be a part of,” said Ryan LaVangie, vice president of sales and marketing at Acella Construction. “The Pelham House Resort has been the source of amazing memories for decades and with construction of this new meeting and wedding venue and rooftop bar, countless more memories are guaranteed.”
