The day has finally come where Memaw’s long-term stay at the Interlaken has come to an end! She arrived at the end of June and stayed with us for 6 weeks. Why would someone stay at the Interlaken for 6 weeks you might ask? Local business purposes, needing a place to stay while their home being built in the area is complete, writing a book, a film crew producing in the area – many reasons why. In Memaw’s case, she was here to bring her grandson to a local day camp in Amenia, NY. Monday through Friday, Memaw would get up, get her grandson to camp bright and early, and then return to the Inn until it was time to pick him up for the day. Memaw had company with her though – her “granddog” Crystal. I would visit Memaw often and her and Crystal would be just relaxing and reading, or walking the property, but always meeting new friends! Memaw plans to keep in touch with some Guests she met this summer, and Crystal became the Mascot of Woodside, welcoming other dogs, one being the Standard Poodle Fritz. Woodside was the perfect pet friendly accommodation for Memaw since she did have Crystal with her – the fridge and microwave came in handy for her as well! Memaw’s husband came to visit her as well, all the way from Texas, and they explored the Northwest part of Connecticut together, something they’d never done before. Whatever your reason is to stay with us long term, give us a call at 1-800-222-2909 so we can make the arrangements.
As for Memaw – thank you for choosing to stay with us, goodbye, keep in touch, and we will all miss YOU!
Corporate Day Outings at Interlaken!
Now is the perfect time to plan a fun day outing for all of your employees and their families the same way this group did this past Sunday. They all arrived around Noon and kicked off the day with a traditional Backyard BBQ complete with BBQ chicken, burgers, hot dogs, potatoes, fresh picked sweet corn and yummy strawberry shortcake for dessert. Afterwards, everyone was able to take advantage of our property amenities, including the outdoor pool, the lakefront, tennis courts, and volleyball. We also arranged a water balloon relay (kids loved that!), “egg on the spoon” relay and a tug of war. Mid-afternoon called for another food and beverage break where lemonade and cookies were waiting for all! If this sounds how you want to treat your staff and their families before the summer ends, then give Kristy Barto, our Corporate Sales Manager a call today (1-800-222-2909) to let the fun begin!
Are there any dates left this summer for the Lake Cottage?
The answer is YES!
But just one 5 day period – and that is check-in on Monday, August 9th and check-out Friday, August 13th. That gives you 5 days and 4 nights in this cozy cottage situated on Lake Wononpakook with your own private lake frontage. The Interlaken cottage has one King bedroom, a kitchenette, a living area and a bathroom. It also has a screened-in porch with chairs and a wooden swing to admire the lake – bug free! There is also a bonfire pit and a charcoal grill available for your use. You even have your own canoe – what more do you need?! Just time off from work on Monday, August 9th to Friday August 13th to be able to enjoy this special private getaway!
Can I build a raft at Interlaken?
The answer is “you sure can!”
One of our teambuilding program includes a Raft Expedition – sounds challenging, doesn’t it? One may think of an expedition as handling the rapids on a raging river – but the raft expedition at Interlaken actually challenges your creativity to make a raft with “interesting” items and then stay afloat! The pictures below show it best!
GO FOR IT!
A fun time was had by all with this group that stayed with us last week – give Kristy Barto, our Corporate Sales Manager, a call at 1-800-222-2909 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to start planning your corporate outing today!
How many Wedding Guests can the Interlaken accommodate?
A very popular question amongst our engaged couples looking at our property for their wedding celebration!
The answer is up to 250.
WOW you might say, but depending upon the set-up the dance floor, whether you have a band or a DJ, a head table or a sweetheart table, our wedding pavilion can hold upwards of 250 Guests. Typically, our wedding counts range from 150 to 200 Guests, and this would be utilizing the standard set-up of the pavilion that most couples love. Tables can be arranged on the bricks under the pavilion as well as up on the deck area, and all tables are surrounded by lush greenery and glorious blooms this time of year. For those choosing a wedding in the cooler months, the sides of the tent would be up and heat would be available if necessary. Come see our pavilion to see if it’s perfect for you! Contact Brandon Scimeca to make an appointment!
