Do you remember Saxon? If not, here is the beautiful boy, resting at the Interlaken Lakefront:
He's so happy to be back, as evidenced by the kisses he laid on me! I wish I had my camera handy at the time to show you proof... as Virginia said, this is his second home, so it was no surprise he was showering me with big kisses. And these are the best kisses, you know the ones - it started at the base of my neck right up to my chin! Keep an eye on this handsome therapy dog as he continues with his modeling - if you see an Airedale in print, it just may be Saxon!
It's so great to have you back, Virginia, Stephen and Saxon! I am so happy you are enjoying your time with us, regardless of the damp weather! Only sunshine for the rest of your stay, I promise!
Dancing in the Dark
That is what the bride and groom and their family and friends will be doing later this evening under our wedding pavilion! "Dancing in the Dark" is also one of their table names - the bride and groom are huge Bruce Springsteen fans, so rather than table #1, #2, #3, etc. their Guests will be sitting at tables named after some of the many hits by Bruce - Glory Days, Thunder Road, Working on a Dream... I was started singing them all as I wandered through the pavilion....
Love these sunflower arrangements - Thornhill Florist
I couldn't help but take a picture of the Cupcake cake!
The sun is shining & the sky is blue,
What's a corporate group to do?
Gather the staff and take them away,
Drive to Interlaken Inn for the day!
A BBQ lunch is all prepared,
Swim across the lake, if you dare.
Grab a life preserver and a canoe,
Paddle the lake, and relax while you do.
Laugh with your co-workers, rest by the pool,
Sip Margaritas to keep you all cool.
The tennis courts are ready to play,
Get a game in before the sun fades.
To the Penthouse – where dinner awaits,
More cocktails on hand to seal your fate!
The bibs are on, the lobsters are steamed,
Strawberry shortcake topped with fresh cream.
More jokes, laughter and birthday cake
What a great time had between the two lakes!

Dog Days of Summer
I am sure I have used this title before, but it is just the best title for today's blog as the word about pups enjoying themselves at the Interlaken property is spreading like crazy - our Woodside accommodations are just full of canine friends!
Check out these pictures from Guests that stayed with us a few weeks ago. Three sweet dogs, enjoying the Interlaken grounds, wouldn't hurt a flea....
But might hurt a moose! Russell told me every time they walked by the moose sculpture to get to the lakefront, that Freddy, Bogey and Coby barked at it, thinking it was real. I love when little dogs try to show that their size doesn't make them afraid of anything!
Another pup who should have been here this week is FLIRT. He comes often, and we miss him and his owners, and hope they'll be able to visit us again soon.
Let's not forget out the Cavachon, Breezy - who turns one year old this week! Breezy loved his accommodations in the new pet friendly Sunnyside room. Happy Birthday Breezy!
Lastly, our good friend Saxon, a long time visitor to the Interlaken, all cuddled in our posh pet bed. Plan your visit soon, Virginia - we've got your pecan-encrusted chicken waiting for you!
Does your pet love Interlaken? Send me an email and a photo - I'd love to hear all about it!
Not your average hotel food...
Hotel restaurants have a stigma, you know, and many times for good reason. Certain hotels with restaurants usually have banquet facilities as well, so it’s almost assumed by the Customer that the food they are eating in the restaurant is the same frozen prepared “heat and serve” product that was being prepared for the banquet. Now, I certainly understand that this may be the best option when you are serving several hundred people for a large event, but not here at Interlaken! All of our food is prepared from scratch (for both our restaurant AND for our weddings/banquets) using the finest, local and organic ingredients as much as possible. Our menu changes many times during the week to add the freshest ingredients from our local farms, such as Farm Girl Farm, Feather Ridge Farm, Sky Farm, and Coach Farm. Our Culinary-trained Chefs love to produce creative items using the finest products we can find. Here are what our Guests have said about Morgan’s:
