Four short weeks ago we said bye-bye to our 1st floor bathrooms and now we can say a happy hello to our new look!
The benefits of Spring
In addition to the obvious signs of Spring - warmer temperatures, light at 7:30pm, the wonderfully welcome pops up color from the crocus and other spring flowers - comes the opening of the Lime Rock Race Track, just minutes from the Interlaken on the other side of Route 112. We've gotten many calls from Guests this week looking to get back in the hot seat again, feeling the exhilaration of handling their sweet car around the 1.5 mile long track. It's so nice to hear from Lenny, Rick, Stephen, Bob, Jim and many other long-time Interlaken Guests, as well as to introduce new race fans to our property and to the "incredibly historic yet modern" race track just minutes away. In addition to car club events and big race weekends, the Track is also host to other special events, such as the "Spikes Ride for Sandy Hook at Lime Rock Park" benefit happening on Saturday, April 13th from 10am to 6pm. Over 2,000 cars, bikes and trucks will be on display and will benefit the victims and first responders of the Sandy Hook Elementary school tragedy.
The dock is back!
Here it is, newly constructed and just waiting to be placed in its proper home at Interlaken's lakefront for the summer season. This new dock will make several of our repeat Guests very happy this summer as I know they missed having a dock to swim to last season. I promised them all the return of one this season and here it is. Now we just need warmer weather to officially arrive!
Thank you Adam!
You know you can't.
I may look like just an ordinary roll, but I compare with no other. Although I was introduced into Morgan's several months ago, I've been tweaked by the Chefs to ultimate perfection. I am moist and delicious and the ideal start to your wonderful dinner in Morgan's. Just one bite and you'll agree (just like the sign says). Don't even try to resist me.
Bye Bye Bathroom...
Here's your last look at our 1st floor main building Guestroom bathrooms!
I am always thrilled about renovations at Interlaken, but this one is truly a very long anticipated one. Last year we completed our second floor Guestroom bathroom renovations and they turned out spectacular! (it's ok for me to brag about this, right?!) Although everyone praised the new look, a couple of our Guests did mention a disappointment: lack of a bathtub. I remember this specifically as I met a couple last summer who, although they appreciated the complimentary upgrade to the second floor, the wife was looking forward to relaxing in a nice hot bath. This first floor project will upgrade to a very similar look as the second floor, but all of the bathtubs will remain intact. I am looking forward to the couple's return this summer so she can still have her hot bath but be surrounded by warm earthtones of the granite countertops, rich vanities and soothing artwork.
The renovations began this morning and all rooms will be complete in just a couple of weeks.
