Do you want to entertain outside during wintertime without getting cold? This clear-panel winter gazebo lets you enjoy the outdoors, yet in a warmer environment…
What Makes this Giant Winter Bubble Gazebo So Great?
As you can see from the photo, the transparent PVC panels give you a 360 degree view outside the gazebo. That said, these waterproof and wind-resistant panes provide great heat retention.
The top of the gazebo has 2 windows for ventilation. Plus, it includes 2 top covers to keep out rain and snow. Therefore, you can hang out inside while safely having adequate air flow.
Another option is the Sonostar Hub Bubble Dome Kit. It is designed as an all-weather enclosure that is easy to assemble and take apart. However, it does require about 1 1/2 hour to set up.
Note: Some people use small space heaters inside the large gazebo. However, the manufacturer recommends not using a heater near the sides because the PVC can melt. Also, the sun can significantly warm up the interior without needing supplemental heat.
You can comfortably entertain 15 adults in the large 15′ x 15′ model.
And you can fit a complete set of patio furniture under this monster. Who said you have to put your outdoor furniture in storage for the winter?
Plus, they work perfectly as hot tub enclosures, although they don’t provide much privacy.
Pop-Up Tent Design Makes this Winter Shelter Super Portable
Even the largest 15-foot diameter version of this instant pop-up tent weighs less than 40 lbs. Its easy folding design lets you set it up in minutes.
User Idea: Not to mention, you can travel with this wintertime pop-up virtually anywhere in its convenient carrying bag. Some people even take them to kids soccer games or other sports events to get a break from the cold.
Plus, 2 large entrance doors make this winter weather gazebo more versatile and user friendly. In other words, you will find plenty of ways and places you can use your winter “pop up tent”.
But is this Winter Time Gazebo Sturdy?
All that said, this big bubble gazebo has an ultra-sturdy design. For instance, it comes with 10 elongated sand bags, 20 guylines and 20 mounting stakes to withstand windy conditions.
In addition, the package includes detachable support poles. Simply insert them into the top of the structure to add strength to the ceiling on rainy or snowy days.
You can also use this oversize weather pod as a giant greenhouse too. I like it for growing plants because it gives you a lot of space to move around inside. Not to mention, it sets up in minutes, compared to other home greenhouses which can take hours.

Depending on your home, you can use these gazebo winter enclosures on a deck, a patio or in a backyard garden. Take them out to throw a winter party or simply turn your outdoor living room into a space you can use year-round.
Since this winter pop up gazebo is designed specifically for winter use, it works better to conserve heat. Plus, the clear sides can absorb heat from the sun.
What About a Winter Cover for Your Gazebo?
Adding side curtains and a canopy cover on a traditional gazebo or pergola may retain some heat, but won’t be nearly as effective. On the other hand, they can give you some privacy.
However, if you already have a summertime structure that you want to enclose for wintertime use, you can get universal cover to fit.
Sojag makes them in many sizes, including 10×10, 10×12, 12×12, 10×16, 8×8 and 12×16. They work well as a Hampton Bay gazebo winter cover, and they cost about half as much as the bubble style above.
