The Gondola Village at Ocean House

1 Bluff Avenue, Watch Hill, Rhode Island

Luxurious hospitality isn’t a foreign concept to Ocean House. In fact, they just may be the golden standard. As the only property in Rhode Island to receive a AAA Five Diamond designation for both its hotel and restaurant, Coast, Ocean House has been delighting their guests with world-class amenities and uncompromised service since 2010.

It should be no surprise, then, that their wintertime dining experience is just as stellar. From November through March, guests can experience après ski in the French Alps at the magical Ocean House Gondola Village where lunch, dinner or “apéro” is served inside a real ski gondola lift. But not just any ski gondola – a fully restored vintage ski gondola with an interior that resembles a French ski chalet, complete with antler chandeliers and heated blankets.

When selecting the lunch or dinner experience, guests are offered a four-course meal featuring all the delectable French cuisine you’d crave after a day on the slopes, like duck cassoulet, boeuf bourguignon, potato gnocchi and, best of all, a chocolate fondue board with all the fixings. Booking the apéro experience gets you a superb afternoon crepe service featuring your choice of sweet or savory crepes and velvety hot chocolate.

When your meal is finished, take a cozy seat beside the fire right outside your gondola to enjoy a nightcap surrounded by the property’s gorgeous views dappled in snow. C’est parfait!
