C'est Christine visits Interlaken

I've got a new blog to read, and I am thinking one to emulate as well.

Christine Amorose stayed at the Interlaken this past weekend, and she wrote about her experience here in Lakeville on her blog "C'est Christine".  Now I have many photos of our pretty lakefront, but none with someone next to it standing on their head! 

C'est Christine Interlaken Inn Blog

What a way to start the day... Thanks for an excellent photo, Christine, and all of your positive words about Interlaken!

In my book, C'est Christine truly does have "A Charming Way with Words."

Helping Others

We recently did an entire property linen replacement, looking to provide our Guests with the most comfortable and cleanest night's rest possible.  But what happens to all of the old linen, you might ask?  We give to those in need, from shelters to animal rescues to this, The Salvation Army.

The truck is ready to be filled with our old sheets, blankets, duvets, pillows, shams, skirts, scarves - you name it.  If you saw it on the beds here at Interlaken you will now find it in the Salvation Army truck going to those in need.

We aren't filling up our landfills!  Happy Earth Day!

Weekly Penthouse Peek

As the progress for the new Penthouse Suite moves into its final stages, I thought it would be fun to share it's progress each week until its completion in late April/early May.

Seeing the plumbing and electrical aspects of the construction aren't nearly as fun as watching the new fireplace go in!

Can't wait to see what is new next week!

National Garden Month

April is finally here, the month that trees and flowers being to open.  I am always excited to look to see what Spring has sprung from one day to the next.  Right now, I watch as the snow continues to melt and the garden beds are revealed inch by inch.  Soon the warm sunshine will transform the property into this once again, and grace us all season long with beautiful displays of color and scents all around the Interlaken.

Leaving the Big Apple

It's never been easier to get out of the Big Apple and up to the pretty Connecticut countryside at Interlaken Inn with our "Getaways from New York City" package.  It's so simple:  just buy a ticket on the Metro North Railroad to Wassaic at either 1:47pm or 3:43pm and we'll have a shuttle waiting for you to bring you to our front door.  Here, you can leave all of the everyday hustles and bustles of NYC life behind you as we get you settled in one of our comfortable and quiet Guestrooms.  Stroll around the property and watch as the first signs of Spring come to life once again.  Wander to the pretty and calming lakefront and relax in one of our Cedar swings surrounded by the fresh country air.  Rejuvenate at ELLORA Spa with one of her refreshing facials.  Dine in Morgan's, where the food has been compared to some high quality NYC restaurants.  Sleep soundly amongst 30 acres of peacefulness.  Awake to a hearty breakfast and then relax some more before the shuttle service returns you back to the Wassaic station and Metro North Railroad andhome once again.

This special getaway package is available through the month of April only.  Book your getaway soon!

World Water Day!

Vanessa is at it again, celebrating "World Water Day" with the Potter Quilt Retreat Ladies!

World Water Day at Interlaken Inn 2014

Every day is a celebration of something, and apparently we are celebrating water today.  I celebrated by taking a brisk walk to my favorite body of water, and that is the Interlaken's lakefront.  I know there's water under that big sheet of ice somewhere, and I can't wait to see it flowing once again very soon!  Canoeing, swimming, raft building, wedding ceremonies, Intermingle cocktail hour - the lakefront is the perfect place for anything!

Interlaken Inn's Lakefront Lakeville CT

Now, we can't celebrate the lake when it's frozen (when is Ice day?) so Vanessa has acknowledged the day by creating these amazing pitchers of herb/fruit/spice infused water.  Why have plain H20 when you can try Strawberry & Basil or Cucumber?  The Quilting Ladies seemed to enjoy the fresh offerings - thanks Vanessa!

Interlaken has lots of water!  Here is our outdoor heated pool which will be open once again Memorial Day Weekend....

Eating of the Greens

Why was the tomato embarassed?

Morgan's Restaurant at Interlaken Lakeville CT

He saw the salad dressing.

Morgan's at Interlaken Inn Lakeville CT

There's nothing like fresh greens to do the body good, and the season for freshly picked local greens is right around the corner.  We know as soon as the snow melts and the seeds are planted by the local farmers we will once again be blessed with fresh crops to make the most flavorful, savory and healthy salads served in Morgan's restaurant.  The Heirloom Kale Salad with Local Honeycrisp apples, Black Olive Crunch, and Hazelnut is one of my favorites. 

Morgan's is open 7 days a week and reservations are happily accepted.
