Celebrate with us

Do you have an occasion coming up that you'd like to celebrate in an extra special way?  This Guest did and by the looks of it, he was happy to have chosen Interlaken!  And we are so happy he did.

I brought my girlfriend to Interlaken for her 25th birthday, and having never been there before, honestly did not know what to expect!  I was truly and genuinely blown away.  Getting there the night before the Hurricane was about it hit brought on a little stress but the champagne and the chocolate covered strawberries, which were phenominal, definitely lightened the mood.  The room itself was fantastic; so very comfortable and the little balcony was great.  She loved the game room, not for the games but for the fantastic library you had built into the wall.  She could have stayed there for days reading away!  We took a long walk around the grounds, first to the close lake and then to the lake house.  We have already started planning our summer getaway to come back, and of course spending many hours in the study with the books.  We didnt eat at Morgan's as we are both big sushi fans and ended up going to a restaurant only a few miles away.  That was also wonderful.  It was a perfect little getaway and we cannot thank you enough for it.  We will definitely be coming back and only with the highest of compliments.  
We can enhance your occasion with special touches placed in your room before your arrival - chocolate covered strawberries and chilled champagne or a basket of cookies and Pelligrino.  Want something that is not on our standard in-room amenity list?  Let us know and we'll do our best to accommodate your sweetheart's favorite thing!

Where's Teri?

I looked everywhere.  I went into the larger of our two conference areas, the Will Rogers Room, and saw the normal scrapbook weekend set-up - a long clothed table and chair for each scrapper - and STUFF.  All kinds of it.  Albums, paper, adhesives, punches, embellishments, stickers, ribbon, borders, and lots of photos.  Although I was able to say hi to Margaret and Jamie, I still didn't see Teri. I wandered into the Continental room and she wasn't there either.  Where is Teri? 

Teri, are you in there?

Creative Memories at Interlaken Inn Scrapbook Weekend

We've been the host for the Creative Memories group for many seasons now and this was the first time that Teri wasn't here.  She has passed the reins over to Margaret, Jamie and Kris but Teri, you'll forever be here in spirit!  I hope you make it to the next event in March as a participant. 

Love to scrap and want to take a part of these special weekends?  There is one planned both the first and second weekend in March 2013.  There's no club to join, just a love of scrapbooking.  Contact us for more details!


A Morgan's Must Have

It's the simple things in life, right? 

Local Honeycrisp Apple and Heirloom Kale Salad, Pecorino Vinaigrette, Black Olive Crunch

A super healthy and super delicious salad that you just must try.  And don't let the kale scare you away - you will love it after you have this dish!  Kale is my absolute favorite green, so to have it paired up with a honeycrisp apple -well, I knew the dish would be a good one but I had no idea it would be this good.  I savored every bite.  I tried to recreate the dish at home but no luck.  I'll just have to go to Morgan's more often.  Come to Morgan's any night and try it yourself - but hurry, you know the menu changes often around here!

Salisbury Garden Center & Interlaken Inn - centerpiece

Here is a photo of the beautiful holiday centerpiece you can create when you come visit Interlaken this holiday season!  As a special add-on to the "New England Holiday Escape" package offered the weekend of December 14th and 15th, Emily from Salisbury Garden Center will help you put together this wonderful arrangement that will certainly be the perfect addition to your holiday table.  This year take the time to create the perfect addition to your holiday table!

P.S. If you'd rather decorate a wreath, that is another festive option being offered that day!


Familiar Faces

Quilting Retreat at Interlaken CT

I suppose if I started blogging about 'familiar faces' I'd be blogging every minute of the day as Interlaken has a very very large group of repeat visitors!  In this case, these are two nice women I met last year at the Quilts & Treasures Retreat and who are back again this weekend for more "sweet" fun (the theme of this year's gathering).  They are just so happy to be here and do their favorite hobby all weekend long.  In fact, they come a day early to get a head start!  I love wandering around the room and seeing the beautiuful masterpieces everyone creates.  Deb and Pam, it was great seeing you ladies and I am already looking forward to next year!
