International Day of Peace
According to Chase, today is International Day of Peace. Of course peace means many different things to many different people, but let me share with you how Interlaken Guests reference the word PEACE:
We came here to get some peace and quiet for our dogs from the 4th of July fireworks in our Queens NYC neighborhood and you delivered.
It is such a beautiful piece of property and very relaxing.
Although it rained most of the time, we had a nice time touring the nearby towns and relaxing on the porch.
A very comfortable stay, clean and quiet.
The lake was beautiful and relaxing. We enjoyed a swim and a canoe ride around the lake.
We truly enjoyed our stay. The setting is relaxing and beautiful to look at.
We could not have wished for more. The ambience, quietude, our room (Rm.120 in the main lodge) were all perfect.
My husband was at Lime Rock so I spent my day at the Inn. Everyone was very nice, and I had a relaxing day.
The grounds were beautiful and it was very quiet.
My husband and I had the most relaxing stay and are in love with the Cabin I would like to plan a week every year in June if possible.
Hotel staff was very courteous. I went to recharge my batteries and found that everyone respected privacy.
We really enjoyed our quiet weekend, and hope to come back again.
Our brief stay at your inn was very nice and relaxing.
Smores over the bonfire, exploring with the kids and quiet nights on the screened porch. Just what we needed.
We had a wonderful time. The room was wonderful, the food was fantastic, and the location was quiet and peaceful.
It was fabulous. Your hospitality was incredible and you pampered us every day. I can’t wait to come back to your hideaway in heaven.
Color my world
Picture these pretty trees speckled with color in just a few short weeks... how gorgeous will that be? So many trees are already showing signs of gold and yellow and red, so by as early as next weekend the lakefront should be stunning - how about you take advantage of the special Romance package we are offering then and see this beautiful countryside for yourself? Or come mid-week and take advantage of our new Fall Foliage package. Either way, picnic lunch in it, wine taste in it, canoe in it, kayak in it, hike in it, bike in it, walk in it, apple pick in it, corn maze in it - just be out in it!
I could look at anyone's wedding photos, couldn't you? Check out this slideshow from Sarah and Bill's wedding posted by Steven and Tak of STAK, frequent photographers to the Interlaken property for wedding events.
What a mess!
A mess, though, that is welcome when it comes to getting a new look! Two bathrooms on our second floor in our Main Building are getting just that - a new look. The tub, the vanity, wallpaper - all of it has been removed to reveal a clean slate (well, that light still has to come down....) for construction to start in a few days.
One will be a "plum" theme and the other will be a "spice" theme. Mosaic wall tile, a tiled shower unit (bye bye tub) - I won't give it all away right now! Check back in late next week for photos of the brand new look!
W O W
WOW, what an absolutely gorgeous day today in Northwestern Connecticut. I was fortunate enough to spend time outdoors in it, and I am here to report all the wonderful things happening at Interlaken today.
Number 1: W E D D I N G ! I love a wedding anytime of the year, but you know (or maybe you don't) fall weddings are my particular favorite - even without the color change yet there is just that crispness in the air and that blue sky is just so much deeper. I love it! The ceremony site was still at our lakefront but was held between the birch trees - take a look!
Now, not that you could tell from this picture, but the owner's pontoon boat needed to be moved out of the way for pictures of course! So, someone had to do this dirty work, so off Kevin (the Innkeeper) and I went, out onto the lake on this beautiful day. How lucky am I? Just as lucky as all those Interlaken Guests enjoying the lakefront themselves - swimming, canoeing, kayaking, just resting by the water enjoying the wonderful breeze. I took several shots of the lake, but will only post a few:
So after the ceremony is over, we head back in (sad face) but then as we are walking back up to the property I see this beauty! Tux is his name.
Back at the property (almost indoors, prolonging that as long as possible) I take a few pictures of the wedding pavilion where all of the wedding Guests will soon be enjoying their evening with wonderful food and fun dancing!
As I sit at my desk (listening to the music during the cocktail hour happening now in the courtyard) I decide to check in with Ann, staying here with her family and her dog in our newly renovated Sunnyside pet friendly room. She is enjoying this lovely weather as well, and was just heading out to the pool. She is looking forward to her dinner in Morgan's restaurant this evening, and plans to visit Ellsworth Farm in Sharon, CT for some apple picking and early harvest fun!
Seems like everyone is enjoying a wonderful weekend at Interlaken!
