Dine in Heated Ski Gondolas at This Cozy Maine Restaurant and Inn
Winter dining experiences are crucial to enjoying the brutal New England winter.
Let’s face it, summer dining along the seacoast is the best. The outdoor dining options from Portsmouth to Ogunquit and Newburyport to York are massive. To feel the ocean breeze in the hot summer sun is one of the best feelings.
More importantly, outdoor dining is the best.
My wife and I would eat outdoors all winter long, and we do. When we head to Burlington, Vermont, we often wear our ski suits and have a cocktail in the snow.
Well, you don’t need to do that here in Maine.
The Kennebunkport Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine, has the coolest (yet warm) outdoor winter dining experiences on the Seacoast.
You can sit in these real, unique ski gondolas for a full meal with up to six friends!
It is like a winter wonderland on this patio, with string lights above and a fire pit in the middle.
Reservations are certainly needed for this once-in-a-lifetime dining experience. So if you are interested, call 207-967-2621 and press option 4!
