Presenting Paddleboarding

Canoes.  Kayaks.  Rowboats.  Sailboats.  Pontoon boats.  People. Birds.  Now we will be able to see something else that is new on our lakefront.

Paddleboats.

I've never tried stand-up paddle boarding, have you?  If you'd like to, now you can your next visit to Interlaken!  You will just need to have at least nine other people looking to join you to make the fun happen. 

The latest addition to our corporate retreat, family reunion and wedding party offerings, The Litchfield County Paddler has teamed up with Interlaken to host their instruction right here on Lake Wononscopomuc.  Our lakefront is the perfect spot to learn as it's just so peaceful - you will never be disturbed with speedboats or jet skis whizzing by, creating waves that may make you a bit unsteady.  The waters of Lake Wononscopomuc are clear and cool, and also the deepest in the State of Connecticut.

Advance reservations are necessary, so click here for more information.

Memorial Day Marriage

The weather forecasters missed this one!  It was a beautiful day to exchange vows at the pretty lakefront, then follow it with a celebration under our wedding pavilion, surrounded by freshly bloomed - and very green - gardens.

Planting at Interlaken Inn

It always makes me happy seeing the Salisbury Garden Truck in our parking lot this time of year.  Emily and Sara just drove in with two truckloads of colorful annual plants, spiky vines, potted moss planters and vibrant hanging baskets to grace every building on the Interlaken property.

This is just a smidge of what they brought and what they will plant this week in order to have the property looking perfectly pretty this Memorial Day weekend. 

I love empty pots too - hmmm, what will be growing in this beautiful pot this summer?  You'll have to come and see!

Their new plantings in front of our main building from 2 seasons ago are flourishing already!

Salisbury Garden Center is located less than 10 minutes from Interlaken, so you too can bring home something local!

A relaxing Spring Morning

There's something so peaceful about an early morning on a Spring Sunday at the Interlaken, and one of my favorite times to walk the property.

Spring at Interlaken Inn Lakeville CT

Most Guests are still sleeping, so I am greeted by the birds chirping, the sky so blue, the air so calm, and the grass so dewy.   The freshness of Spring always amazes me, and although I've seen this view so many times before, it always makes me smile.  I am so fortunate to work in this beautiful setting and to welcome Guests to enjoy it with me.

Spring tea Harney & Sons Interlaken Inn Lakeville CT

Looks like some Guests did decide to enjoy this lovely morning outdoors too!  A wonderful way to start the day is with a cup of Harney & Sons Irish Breakfast, Mr. Harney's favorite tea himself.

A Guest shared this comment with me:  "The location is very peaceful and beautiful" and "I loved being surrounded by nature".  I totally agree.
