What's in your Inbox?

Here's what was in mine today, right in a row:

We had a lovely time while staying at Interlaken. We enjoyed some relaxation while walking around your lovingly maintained property and canoeing on the peaceful lake.

Our dinner at Morgan's was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our champagne in our room.  Our room was clean and the furnishings were just right. We spent time on our private balcony and were able to enjoy the fresh air while sipping our champagne.

Thank you for a lovely time. We look forward to more visits to Interlaken Inn in the not too distant future!

Then:

I really like your Inn. I have nothing negative to say. You are my hotel of choice.

Followed by:

Our stay at Interlaken this past weekend was perfect. It was an important occasion: The stay was a mini-vacation gift to our 10 year old son, Gram, who is a motorsport fanatic. It was his first official experience witnessing live racing (with the Saturday SCCA finals at Limerock Racepark) so we were looking for a place to rest and enjoy his enthusiasm.

You delivered in full…the room, the grounds, the dining…all perfect. He especially loved the second floor balcony to the room.

A unit with two full sized beds can tend to be tight for two adults and a young boy but your lodging is wonderful. We’re curious about the other lodging options and fully intend to explore the potential there at our next visit to Interlaken and Limerock.

Thank you again for being part of such a terrific family experience.

Thank you to these Guests for making the Interlaken staff smile!  We look forward to serving you all again soon!

Golfing with a view

Interlaken Inn - Copake Country Club

This is the first time I've posted a photo of a lake this not part of the Interlaken property.  I must admit it feels rather strange!  Let me move on and tell you how it relates! 

Golfing with a view is true:  from the 7th and 18th holes at Copake Country Club you can see the beautiful Copake Lake up in Columbia County, NY, about 25 minutes from the Interlaken.  The drive to this course is quite a pretty one as you head north on Route 22 and admire the beautiful mountains and valleys with trees just starting to pop with some color.  You must drive along this beautiful lake to get to the entrance of the golf course located on a hill that provides amazing views of not only the lake but this very pretty sunset as well.  I believe the view only can get better as the season becomes more vibrant.  There are many golf courses near the Interlaken (including Hotchkiss Golf Course right next door) so come and stay with us soon to get at least one more round in before the season ends!

International Housekeepers Week

Yes, we celebrated it at Interlaken! 

International Houskeepers Week Interlaken Inn

Every year the second week in September is deemed International Housekeepers week and we at Interlaken are so into showing our appreciation of the hard work the cleaning and service staff provides to you, our Guests!  As you can see, we all go to great lengths to make it as much fun as possible.  Helen Boyles is the queen of making all of us look our best!  Thank you Helen!

International Houskeepers Week Interlaken Inn

Not only does she alter our appearance (just a bit for some of the staff) she also challenges our abilities.  Here we are putting together wood puzzles as fast as we can so we can win a bag of M-n-M's!

She also challenged our knowledge of the property by putting together a little quiz of details she felt everyone on staff should know.  Just when we thought we knew all there was to know about Interlaken, Helen pulled out questions that stumped us all!

Now a celebration is not complete unless there is food involved, and boy, was there food involved.  Our Internationals friends gave us a taste of Bulgaria with shopska salad, kebapche, chicken noodle soup, cucumber and dill soup, salami dessert, creme caramel, and rice pudding, just to name some of the yummy flavors of their home country.  The Interlaken Chefs also treated us all to bountiful lunches featuring Greek and Southern cuisine.

Thank you to everyone on the Interlaken Guest Services Cleaning Staff for all you do!  And thank you, Helen for making it a super fun week in honor of them of all!
