It is a gorgeous fall day today at the Interlaken, so it was only most appropriate that I grab the camera and head outside!  Follow me, and then tell me…

I am sitting on the terrace under the awning, looking out to the pool.  Can you see the tree changing in the distance?

I am walking up the path to the Wedding Pavilion

I am sitting on the deck outside Room 216, our Skip Barber Suite

I am walking along the dog path near the Sunnyside building

I am sitting in an adirondack chair outside Room 154 on Sunnyside’s wrap around porch
Come back tomorrow to see where I am then!


Be our FRIEND!

If you aren’t already one, be our Interlaken friend on FACEBOOK!  Admit it, you are always on there, updating your status, checking on your friend’s status, posting pictures of your kids, connecting with old high school friends – so why not ‘friend’ us so you can see what’s going on here!   We can keep tempting you to get away with all of the fun things that happen here and in the surrounding area.  Vanessa happily keeps a constant supply of information posted – pictures of food are of course my favorite!  Lime Rock events, wedding photos, local art shows, what’s being picked at Ellsworth Farm, groups in house (welcome back Country Quilters this weekend!), new packages, fun weekend happenings – and so much more!  It’s easy to find us – just type in the Search box “Interlaken Inn” and there we are!  Of course our Facebook friends receive special rates and promotions, so be on the lookout!  If this is your favorite time of year, now is the perfect time to become our friend as we will share with you every fall festival/happening/show/event that we know of that celebrates this wonderful season!  We look forward to being friends with YOU today!



As promised, here some photos from the wedding at the Interlaken this past weekend!  Rather than showing you the usual ones, such as the ceremony at the lakefront, the set-up under the pavilion, etc., I thought I’d go with just three today – three unique and fun ideas that you may want to have at your wedding!  Here they are:


A Candy Bar!  Buckets of yummy candy with tongs in each for choosing – it’s like being at Dylan’s but in Lakeville, CT!  What a great way to satisfy every sweet tooth that is sharing in your sweet celebration!


Add some dress up fun to your celebration!  Every accessory you could ask for:  hats, masks, scarves, feathers, you name it – it was all here at the photo booth!  They brought in a portable studio, the Guest would take their own picture, it would print out onto a scrapbooking table, each Guest would then “scrap” their photo into the scrapbook – what a great way to capture unforgettable memories!


One cake, one flavor?  I don’t think so!  Check out this cupcake variety:  Carrot cake, chocolate with a peanut butter filling, chocolate with mint filling and mint frosting, red velvet with cream cheese frosting, lemon with a sugared lemon on top.  With such great flavors, who can choose just one?!


SOUNDS at Interlaken!

This is what we heard at the Interlaken today!

“Everything was great”

“Thank you so much for your hospitality”

“Everything was wonderful!”

“This girl was so helpful”

“This is a lovely place”

“The wedding was gorgeous, couldn’t have been better, who would say any other”

“The breakfast buffet was very good”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay”

“It was fabulous, we had so much fun”

“Everything was great”

“Everything was lovely, truly a great place”

“Beautiful room, and the place was very nice as well”

“It’s a beautiful place, although I had so much fun that I lost my dress – I can’t find it” (haha, she laughs)


Thank you to our wonderful Guests this weekend!

P.S. For those of you looking for photos from the wedding, check back in few days - they will be posted then!


Labor Day Weekend – WOW!

Summer always ends with a BANG at both Interlaken and the surrounding area! 

1.  A HUGE wedding here – the ceremony is happening at the lake right as I type this.  The wedding pavilion is ready for the Guests!  More action shots in tomorrow’s blog!

 2.  The Taste of Litchfield Hills happening at Lime Rock Race Track – still an hour and a half left to try local restaurants and meet some local vendors – it’s happening Sunday and Monday as well from 11am to 6pm! 

3.  Our outdoor heated pool!  Nothing like one last dip!
4.  Look at the above picture – do you see the changing tree?  The first signs of fall which mean apple picking!  Ellsworth Farm in Sharon, CT is now picking apples – and the Crossword Puzzle Corn Maze is also open – great fun for the entire family!
5.  Back to Lime Rock Park for the Historic Racing Series – catch “Sunday in the Park” Concours and Car Show Sunday at the track, and then head back Monday for the big Vintage race!
Check back in tomorrow for some great photos and fun ideas from this weekend’s wedding!
