Now in its third year, the gingerbread house with be open November 21 - January 1, though it was back in 2017 when the idea for the attraction was first hatched. In an effort to create a once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience, the hotel staff and engineers worked to create a gingerbread structure large enough to fit a group of diners. Since then, locals and visitors have looked forward to the holiday tradition.
The gingerbread house is 14x14x14 feet with a vaulted ceiling and includes a different theme every year. This year, the theme is Christmas vacation. The house is assembled by Stella San Jac’s Executive Chef using house-made gingerbread pieces, 25 cases of holiday candy, 900 pounds of sugar, 500 pounds of powdered sugar, and more.
The gingerbread house is currently serving all four meals, breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner (reservation required), for groups. The house can comfortably seat 10 guests, while up to 100 guests can use the space in and around the gingerbread house for a reception-style event. Additionally, while the gingerbread-house is sure to fill your holiday with whimsy and holiday magic, visitors should also know that a portion of the proceeds will be going to Back on My Feet, a local non-profit that works to end homelessness.
