The Gift of Time
I love talking with Guests that are looking to surprise their significant other with “The Gift of Time”. I spoke with a nice young lady the other day who was looking to give her new husband “the gift of time” with a night away as a Christmas present. She started her internet search with “shows in Connecticut” and came across Infiity Hall over in Norfolk, CT, just 20 minutes from the Interlaken. “The Sounds of ABBA” caught her eye, as well as the Interlaken “Night on the Town” package we offer that includes overnight accommodations, tickets to the show, and breakfast for two the next day. She booked the package at Infinity, and upon further conversation about “the gift of time” (I get excited when someone wishes to surprise someone else, especially like this), we talked about other packages we offer and ended up booking another for February! Our “Sleigh Ride” package fit the bill perfectly for her – a romantic sleigh ride at Loon Meadow Farm (also in Norfolk) and two tickets to the Norman Rockwell Museum. She was thrilled about that one as Norman Rockwell is her husband’s favorite artist, and who can beat a sleigh ride? Let’s hope for lots of snow in February when she comes!
If you wish to give the “Gift of Time” this year to your special someone, please give me a call – I’d love to plan it with you!
Ski season is here!
Yes, it’s cold in New England, very cold. I think the only ones who might be real happy about that are the skiiers! We always boast about the three ski mountains near Interlaken, and SKI BUTTERNUT is the first moutain to open up this year. I spoke to Keith from Butternut, and he says the 178 guns have been going 24/7 for quite some time and it will be a winter wonderland by the time they open on Friday, December 10th. They hope to open with a minimum of seven trails, and maybe even up to ten, thanks to the addition of 30 more Top Gun snowmaking tower snowguns this year. Wouldn’t it be cool to see them all in action right now?! My question is: Is the lodge open, and is it serving hot cocoa? Keith told me to stop whining, bundle up and try snow tubing with my daughters. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, Butternut has a great family oriented tubing center (hot cocoa is nearby) that is available on weekends (it opens later this month). I’ll be sure to try it and blog about it with pictures after I do, so be sure to check back later for that! In the meantime, for all of you skiiers – the season has officially started near Interlaken – so if your schedule allows, head to Butternut tomorrow for their grand opening and throughout the weekend as well!

Make it a Date Night!
Let’s face it – the holiday season can get pretty hectic. There’s so much going on in just a few short weeks - cookie swaps, shopping, holiday parties, decorating, friends coming from out of town – and the list goes on and on. Certainly the hustle and bustle of the season can put a dent in the time alone that you usually spend with your special someone. As crazy as life can get, it’s important to make and have quality time with the one you love, even if you need to schedule it in! Probably the most traditional and simplest of dates would be dinner and a movie, so Interlaken created the new Date Night package. Our package goes a bit beyond the dinner in Morgan’s and a movie at the Moviehouse in Millerton, NY because it also includes an overnight room and breakfast for each of you, so you get even more quality time away from the holiday frenzy! I would love to upgrade you complimentary to one of our Townhouse Suite units, so when making your reservation tell us you read about it in my blog and you’ll be enjoying some late night quiet time in front of the fireplace as well!
