A HUGE sigh of Relief….
has been heard across New England by every couple (and their family and friends) who are getting married today! Lakeville’s forecast for today is a high of 62, sunny and – this is the important part – O% chance of precipitation! The sky couldn’t be bluer and the colors on the trees are just so intense in contrast to that blue sky. I woke up extra early today just so I could get in a walk through the woods before my day began at Interlaken, and am so glad I did. Even though the rain was pretty intense these past couple of days, there are still plenty of green leaves on the trees, and my walking path was covered with golds, yellows, oranges and reds. The sun was peaking through the trees, the air was crisp – I couldn’t think of a better way to start my day! I hope everyone takes the time to appreciate this amazing weather here in this part of New England this weekend!
My last canoe ride
The other day I took my last canoe ride out onto Lake Wononscopomuc – for this season anyway! Even though the day was cloudy at Interlaken, it was still warm, and the lake was as peaceful, tranquil, quiet and beautiful as always. The trees were dotted with color, with the peak season still yet to come! The canoes and kayaks will be available for our Guests at our private lakefront until about mid-October, so if you are visiting in the next few weeks be sure to get your last canoe ride in for this season as well!

"Tour des Farms"
Interesting title, isn’t it? What it actually is is even more interesting! Freund’s Farm Market and Bakery in East Canaan, CT (less than 20 minutes from the Interlaken property) is the site of this unique biking experience that will allow you to pedal through CT farmlands, a winery, vegetable farms and dairy farms. You will have your choice of a 12 mile, 25 mile or a 62 mile route. Although I love biking on the Harlem Valley Rail trail (the paved railroad bed 15 miles long through rural landscapes of Dutchess and Columbia counties in NY state) this is certainly a biking experience worth looking into! I mean, you won’t just see the foliage, you’ll be in it! It’s planned for this Saturday, October 2nd beginning at 9am at Freund’s Farm on Route 44 – and the weather looks crisp, cool and sunny! A registration fee is charged, and the proceeds from the ride will go to support the Resource Conservation & Development (RC&D) program. If you haven’t been to Freund’s Market, that is an adventure in itself this time of year! Full of pumpkins, mums, produce, local syrup, baked goods – any harvest item you can think of! And Freund’s will even collect your purchases and present them to you at the finish line. Shopping and biking – love it!
