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!

Meet Marconi!

Interlaken Inn pet friendly hotel in Connecticut

Another first at Interlaken:  Marconi had his first canoe trip on Lake Wononscopomuc this summer.  His owners tell me he spent alot of time wading in the lake and watching the birds go by.  "Doggy heaven" is the quote for this cutie!

Marconi's owners had a great visit with us too:

We loved our stay at Interlaken so much that we could not wait to tell our friends how great it was. We also posted some wonderful photos on Facebook and on the strength of our recommendation and photos, several of our friends have already booked their stay with you.  Your staff is so lovely and welcoming we will absolutely be back there again! 
Thank you, and we will see you again very soon.
 
There is still a good month left before the lake gets too cold for any sort of wading - so give us a ring soon to book your fall getaway with your pup!
