Leaving the Big Apple
It's never been easier to get out of the Big Apple and up to the pretty Connecticut countryside at Interlaken Inn with our "Getaways from New York City" package. It's so simple: just buy a ticket on the Metro North Railroad to Wassaic at either 1:47pm or 3:43pm and we'll have a shuttle waiting for you to bring you to our front door. Here, you can leave all of the everyday hustles and bustles of NYC life behind you as we get you settled in one of our comfortable and quiet Guestrooms. Stroll around the property and watch as the first signs of Spring come to life once again. Wander to the pretty and calming lakefront and relax in one of our Cedar swings surrounded by the fresh country air. Rejuvenate at ELLORA Spa with one of her refreshing facials. Dine in Morgan's, where the food has been compared to some high quality NYC restaurants. Sleep soundly amongst 30 acres of peacefulness. Awake to a hearty breakfast and then relax some more before the shuttle service returns you back to the Wassaic station and Metro North Railroad andhome once again.
This special getaway package is available through the month of April only. Book your getaway soon!
World Water Day!
Vanessa is at it again, celebrating "World Water Day" with the Potter Quilt Retreat Ladies!
Every day is a celebration of something, and apparently we are celebrating water today. I celebrated by taking a brisk walk to my favorite body of water, and that is the Interlaken's lakefront. I know there's water under that big sheet of ice somewhere, and I can't wait to see it flowing once again very soon! Canoeing, swimming, raft building, wedding ceremonies, Intermingle cocktail hour - the lakefront is the perfect place for anything!
Now, we can't celebrate the lake when it's frozen (when is Ice day?) so Vanessa has acknowledged the day by creating these amazing pitchers of herb/fruit/spice infused water. Why have plain H20 when you can try Strawberry & Basil or Cucumber? The Quilting Ladies seemed to enjoy the fresh offerings - thanks Vanessa!
Interlaken has lots of water! Here is our outdoor heated pool which will be open once again Memorial Day Weekend....
Rent our private Lakeside Cabin this season and look out your window and see this beauty, Lake Wononpakook. (Yes, Interlaken is truly nestled between two lakes!)
We have two Suites (soon to be 3!) that have outdoor hot tubs....
And finally, you can't have a hot cup of Harney Tea without water!

Now is the ideal opportunity to come and experience Interlaken's wedding style at our very first (drum roll please...) Bridal Expo on Sunday, April 13th from 11am to 5pm. This is the biggest site tour we've ever done!
You will be able to see it all from the pretty lakeside ceremony site to the comfortable Guestroom accommodations to the dinner reception under the wedding pavilion.

11am to 5pm
It's the best day ever for one stop wedding shopping!
Eating of the Greens
Why was the tomato embarassed?
He saw the salad dressing.
There's nothing like fresh greens to do the body good, and the season for freshly picked local greens is right around the corner. We know as soon as the snow melts and the seeds are planted by the local farmers we will once again be blessed with fresh crops to make the most flavorful, savory and healthy salads served in Morgan's restaurant. The Heirloom Kale Salad with Local Honeycrisp apples, Black Olive Crunch, and Hazelnut is one of my favorites.
Morgan's is open 7 days a week and reservations are happily accepted.
It's true that "Good Things Come in Small Packages", so we've created some package options for those couples that have a want or a need for a smaller wedding celebration or vow renewal. The same quality of fresh food, warm efficient service, and close attention to detail, just on a smaller scale.
Although our venue is known for its wedding destination reputation, we have areas on property that tend to be more intimate, and we've got packages created around those special areas. Our first offering, for example, is at our Sunnyside house, a beautiful Victorian House set atop a hill overlooking the 30 acres of Interlaken. This house offers twelve Guestrooms, and private wraparound porch and perhaps most of all, a wonderful winding staircase for any bride to descend from.
We've created some options for you, but if you have something else in mind, please do let us know. It's your day and should be just how you want it. Contact Brandon Scimeca to start planning your perfect occasion.
