New Igloo Dining at Oakwood Resort
Brand new to Oakwood Resort and The Pier & Back Porch is igloo dining! The COVID-19 pandemic has upended so many aspects of life as we knew it, and while people enjoy going out to breakfast, lunch, and dinner to celebrate, to enjoy great food, and to relax, the pandemic sure put a damper on it all. However, we wanted to not only make sure our patrons could enjoy dining again, but also to make sure they could enjoy dining safely!
Therefore, we’ve introduced igloo dining, which is a really a fun, unique experience. When you pair it with our spectacular Lake Wawasee views, nothing beats it! Enjoy lakeside dining throughout the entire year with us, with 90-minute reservation times, and igloos that are fully deep-cleaned and aired out between parties per CDC recommendations. Times are limited, so you’ll want to be sure to reserve your igloo now! We offer space heaters, our full dining and drink menu, and although we recommend no more than four to six people at a time in an igloo, we can host parties of up to eight. For more information on our igloo dining an hour from South Bend, visit our igloo dining page. To contact Oakwood Resort’s restaurant near Goshen, The Pier & Back Porch, call 574.457.8700.
