Experience the French Alps at Ocean House

Gondola Village Has Ended for the Season. We Look Forward to Seeing You for Other Culinary Experiences This Season.

Our winter private dining experience opened to coverage from Food & Wine, Departures and Forbes magazines—plus millions of impressions on social media. This season, this luxuriously cozy private dining venue has been reimagined to transport guests to the French Alps, with Lunch service, delightful in-gondola afternoon crepe or Dinner service.

The Experience

Guests will arrive on Ocean House’s North Lawn to enter one of our fully restored vintage ski gondolas for a private dining experience with a personal server. Each gondola has been outfitted with warm woods, fine textiles, chandeliers and sophisticated Le Creuset tableware, surrounded by an enchanting winter wonderland.

Each of these unforgettable experiences is perfect for a romantic rendezvous for two or a warm gathering of friends.

Additional Information

About Veuve Clicquot champagne: Since its foundation in 1772, Veuve Clicquot has remained true to its motto: “only one quality, the finest.” Its history carries the mark of an exceptional woman: Madame Clicquot. This young widow of 27 years old was left devastated by the untimely death of her husband, but courageously took up the helm of the family business. She was uncompromising on quality, and set off to conquer the world, transmitting her taste for excellence and innovation to her successors.

The entire history of the House of Veuve Clicquot is marked by mythical wines, all of which respect the demand for quality that was the force that drove Madame Clicquot. True to this heritage, a short lineage of just 10 Cellar Masters has ensured continuity of the Veuve Clicquot style: strength and complexity.
