"I'm local", said the egg
That is what the egg in our restaurant said the other day. It was stamped in hot pink "I'm local". It was really the cutest egg I ever saw. I took a picture of it but it is hard to read - have you ever taken a picture of an egg before? This is not the only local item in our restaurant or on our restaurant menu. The majority of our menu choices include local ingredients, including Farmer Church's Sweet Corn Soup and Seared Breast and Braised Leg of N.Y. Duck with Cherries and Local Beans with Walnuts. We support our local farms, including Coach Farm, Sky Farm, Church Farm, Feather Ridge Farm and Farm Girl Farm. I love when the deliveries come in as their cars are full of fresh heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn, peppers, and other vegetables - it is a beautiful sight! I think that would make a nice candle scent - "fresh vegetables". Anyway, we all know what a difference using fresh ingedients when cooking can make, so come and try a dish in Morgan's to taste for yourself! Our menu will be changing frequently as the fall season brings us a huge assortment of wonderful items, but click here to see the latest offerings!
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!
