Raise your glass
Wedged between family afternoon wiffle ball games and a wedding reception for 150 people lies the cocktail hour.
Complete with passed HDO's such as Crisp Crab Cakes with Saffron Aioli, Citrus Marinated Shrimp Cocktail, Italian Sausage Stuffed Mushroom, Spiced Tandoori Lamb Skewer, Figs wrapped with Prosciutto and Mascarpone and Peking Duck Wontons with Scallion - and a full open bar. Held casually on our back lawn, surrounded by tiki torches, lush greenery and signs of fall - the cocktail hour is the perfect beginning for the wonderful evening yet to come.
One final ride
There are just a few more weeks to unwind and relax at our peaceful and beautiful lakefront.
No extra charges for the use of our canoes or kayaks.
Come stay with us. Our lake would love to have you visit.
One lingering tropical bloom graces the Interlaken's garden.
Pet of the Week
Little Miss Eva has returned! Although I'll be honest and admit this photo was taken last year she is still just as sweet and beautiful as ever. Thank you, Ingrid, for returning to visit us once again and bringing along your sweet girl with you! We love our pet Guests and love being a pet friendly property!
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."

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!"
