Guest Cheer

I return from vacation and what do I hear?  Many feedback emails full of Guest Cheer!

"It could not have been nicer.  This is the first time we visited Interlaken and we know it won't be the last!  Your hotel is beautiful and we ate in your dining room both nights; the food was delicious.  The room was clean and your staff were very hospitable.  Thank you for a wonderful experience."

"Beautiful place. We had a great time."

"This was our third year taking our grandchildren. We continue to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and diverse activities."

"We had a good time as always"

"We had a wonderful stay at your hotel.  We were there for a wedding which was beautiful.  Our room was great and we enjoyed everything the hotel had to offer."

"We had a wonderful time at the Interlaken.  Everyone was friendly and very helpful.  The accommodations were great."

"Thank you for a lovely visit to the Inn and resort.  It was well handled, everything was clean and nice and the food at the wedding reception of Bret and Jess's wedding was great.  The area is beautiful and I would return again sometime."

And then this one posted on Tripadvisor from a happy bride and groom:

"We hosted our wedding at the Interlaken Inn in August 2013 and it was the best decision we made! We were put up in the bridal suite, with a private patio and hot-tub. The hotel was perfect, with plenty of activities for our guests to have an amazing weekend. We had a BBQ on Friday night, followed by a lakeside bonfire. On Saturday, our guests enjoyed the canoes, tennis, nearby hiking, basketball, pool, volleyball and other lawn games on the grounds. The lake is an idyllic spot for the ceremony and the tented reception area is perfect for the reception. On Sunday, we hosted a brunch with more delicious food served up. The onsite wedding coordinator, Stephanie, is a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. The head-chef Brandon runs a great show as well. Many thanks for helping to make our wedding weekend perfect. Our guests all commented on how much they liked the Interlaken!"

Girlfriend's Getaway

Remember this group of ladies visiting us last year?

Girlfriend's Getaway Package Interlaken Inn Lakeville CT

Although they all live within 10 minutes of each other, it is important for them to still make the annual Girlfriend's Getaway weekend, and we were so pleased they chose to come to Interlaken once again.  What a fun bunch of gals!  Last year they stayed in our main building, but this year they chose a Townhouse Suite with adjoining bedroom and found the space very cozy.  Although some of the ladies went to Millerton (can't miss Harney and Sons Tea Room) some just lounged around at the lake and pool.  As they headed back home they were going to stop at the Millbrook Vineyards and Winery for a tour and tasting, and some lunch at Vineyard Grille and Cafe.  We hope "94 Moms" return in 2014!

I was fortunate enough to meet another group of ladies that get together every year as well, with this being their 5th year of coming to Interlaken.   This nice group of seven ladies are all friends from college, and find Interlaken to be a convenient location for everyone to get to.  They, too, made sure they visited Harney and Sons Tea Room and they were fortunate enough to meet Mr. Harney himself.  They had a blast tasting teas and having lunch in the Millerton Tea Room )tea lovers check out their cute menu.)  Next year will be their 50th anniversary from graduating from college so it will certainly be a special time for all.  They have already booked for 2014 and we look forward to their return.

Now, Girlfriend Getaway Packages are not just for groups of Girlfriends.  I met a wonderful Mom and her daughter at our "Intermingle" this week (you know, our weekly cocktail party with complimentary HDO's and special cocktail every Wednesday) also on the Girlfriend's Getaway Package for a couple of nights.  The Mom said "we aren't Mother and daughter while we are away, but girlfriends".  (Moms, how cute is that?!) This was their first time visiting Interlaken, so naturallly I had to tell them about all the fun things they could do right here (canoe ride around the lake is a must) and in the area (bike riding on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail in Millerton).  I hope we will again be their choice next time they are looking for a getaway!
