Acella Construction Corporation Announces Completion of Pelham House Resort Addition


New event venue with rooftop bar overlooks Nantucket sound; officially opened August 7th. 

PEMBROKE and DENNIS PORT, MA, ISSUED AUGUST 14, 2020… Acella Construction Corporation, a leader in construction management throughout greater Boston, is excited to announce the completion of construction on a 13,000 square foot oceanfront meeting and wedding venue, restaurant, and rooftop bar at the Pelham House Resort in Dennis Port, Massachusetts.

The new space officially opened on August 7, following an August 6 ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The oceanside event venue is a two-story steel-framed structure with Hardie Board and Hardie Board Battens with shingle siding.  The venue features a rooftop bar and restaurant space overlooking the scenic Nantucket Sound.  The new facility shares grounds with the Pelham House Resort, long considered one of Cape Cod’s jewels.

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 coveted vacation and exclusive wedding destination. In late 2018, John McCarthy, in partnership with Dennis Leary and Frank Hursey, brought the Pelham House Resort back in the family after Bob McCarthy sold it in 2007, taking ownership of the venue that over the years has seen many updates and renovations.

Extensive hotel and lobby renovations were completed last year; with this new addition now complete, the renowned Pelham House Resort can boast of an oceanfront meeting and wedding facility equal to none, positioning it as the premier wedding facility on Cape Cod.

Acella Construction oversaw the roughly $7 million, 37-week project, conducting site work and ground-up construction. 

The new facility features a Pella Glass door system that opens to the rooftop deck. Rooftop amenities include a custom louver electric shade system manufactured by Shade & Shutter Systems, Inc. of Hyannis, MA. A porcelain decking system and KONE ReVolution™ elevator system complete the functional and aesthetically attractive rooftop deck.

The HVAC system features rooftop units by Carrier, a world leader in heating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems.

Extensive site redevelopment for the Pelham House Resort project encompassed new utilities, a revolutionary Industrial Air filtration system, a new septic system, outdoor lighting and paving.

DJSA Architecture PC in Raynham, Massachusetts, served as architect for the project.  Two commercial grade kitchens featuring CaptiveAire systems, was designed by Johnson-Lancaster & Associates, Inc.

“This new addition to Pelham House Resort is simply spectacular,” said Ryan LaVangie, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Acella Construction Corporation.  “This innovative space with its expanded outdoor options serves to further enhance the facility’s reputation as a premiere venue for weddings, meetings, and countless other special occasions.”

Working with Acella was great. They were always available to answer my questions and they kept me in the loop every step of the way. They were very flexible and patient and worked around our working schedule – sometimes coming in very early in the morning. Their work turned out wonderfully and they even painted a large wall that was not part of the scope to get the whole space looking shiny and new. This was my first renovation project and they made me look good! I would highly recommend Acella.
