What is happening in Interlaken's backyard this lovely evening in July?
Wait, let's get a closer look....
Ahh, a Backyard BBQ! What a perfect night to be enjoying a feast outside, complete with all the fixins'!
Salmon steaks, hot dogs, grilled hamburgers, barbecued chicken, relish bar, baked idaho potato bar with condiments, tossed salad of baby greens in vinaigrette, old-fashioned baked beans with bacon, onion and molasses, corn on the cob and you got it, strawberry shortcake for dessert. YUM!
Many of our family reunions celebrate their last evening with us by having a traditional BBQ held right here on our patio area and into the courtyard. This one is for about 30 people and they couldn't have asked for a better summer night to have it. We have many dining options for families all of sizes - click here to find out more details about having your family reunion here at Interlaken. Enjoy!
Outdoor dining. If the weather is warm and cozy or your drink is cold enough to beat any heat, or you are just tired of air conditioning, then please request to dine on our Penthouse Rooftop. Cocktails for two, creative appetizers, a full course dinner - whatever your fancy is we'll see to it you are at the top of the Interlaken!
A blog...for Love.
Thank you, Douglas and Katherine at Helios Images Journal, for posting such wonderful photos and the love story of Karen and Fumi who got married at Interlaken this past June. I wish I could cut and paste the it all right into this post but you will have to click the link below - trust me, it's worth it!
Check us out on YouTube!
Engaged couples, take the next one minute and forty-five seconds to check out this video just posted by Glenn Andrew Productions LLC. Already married? It's OK, you can still take a look!
June's Top Performers
Drumroll please.... and the winner of the American Le Mans Northeast Grand Prix GT held today at Lime Rock Park is...Bergmeister/Long, Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. Congrats also to the Vette fans (Geoff, too bad you weren't watching in person) who came in second and third. I got thinking, if Interlaken had a race, who would win? Let me share with you June's Top Performers!
Guestroom: Room 140! A Main Building King Bedded Room that faces the pool and is decorated like no other on property. Recently renovated in honor of a very special Guest that stayed at Interlaken while visiting Lime Rock Park.
Here's the view from Room 140's screened-in porch:
Guestroom runner ups are as follows:
Room 118 (a first floor room with two queens, same view as above), Room 161 (a Victorian-styled king room in our Sunnyside building), Room 150 (the winner in the pet friendly room category - a king bedded room also in the Sunnyside building) and Suite 209 with adjoining Room 210. *Honorable mention to Room 302 - a king bedded room in the Countryside building.
Onto the winners in Morgan's restaurant!
In a category all its own: Morgan's Burger! Local Barlow Farm Grass-fed burger with our homemade French Fries, choice of Caramelized Onions, Bacon, Grafton Cheddar, Berkshire Blue Cheese or Swiss.
Entrees: Salmon! Grilled Wild Coho Salmon, Marinated Leeks and English Cucumbers, Yogurt Sauce. I can attest to its yummiest personally.
I'd say come and try it but it's already been changed (we update quite often, as you know) on the latest menu to Grilled Wild King Salmon, Roasted Local Summer Squash, Pistachio Puree, Yogurt Sauce. Sounds just as yummy as the winner!
Runner-ups: Roasted Organic Chicken with Farmer Church's Local Spinach, Roasted Garlic-Thyme Jus and Grilled Grass-fed NY Strip with House Worcestershire, Horseradish, Grilled Asparagus. *Honorable mention: Homemade Asparagus Ravioli.
