Vacationing with your Pup!
If you’ve been to the Interlaken before, then you know we absolutely love meeting your dog, petting them and giving them treats. (we apologize if we give them more attention than we give to you!)
We also love to make sure they sleep well so we provide posh doggie beds for them to get a good night’s rest so they are energized and ready to go the next morning! (you know that as soon as you even move your pinky toe your dog is at your bedside waiting to greet you!) We also have beautiful grounds for walking your dog and a deep lake that your dog can swim in (we don’t have doggie beach towels, so be sure to bring one to wipe him off with!). You can also order a “to go” dinner from Morgan’s and eat outside with your pet (by the lake is the perfect spot ). Accommodations for pets are in our Woodside building – all rooms have a Queen bed and a pull-out sofa sleeper, a microwave and a fridge (to keep your dog treats in if necessary!) It’s clear we provide everything that is needed to make your pet comfortable and happy to be on vacation – so please provide your Dog with what they want the most – which is being with YOU. That is all your pet lives for and every dog owner in the world knows that.
PLEASE do not leave your pet alone in your Guestroom!
You may know how they act at home when you are not there, but when they are in a strange place no one can predict their behavior. What most dogs decide to do when they are left alone is to call out for you – which means BARKING and lots of it. This obviously disturbs other Guests from enjoying the peacefulness of the Interlaken. If your vacation plans are too involved to include your dog with you, then perhaps your best bet is to find a family member to take care of him or book a kennel at home. If your plans truly are to enjoy every moment with him, then give us a call and let’s get started on your doggie vacation!
Cycling with my Dad!
These are the plans of an 8 year old boy and his Dad, Mom, and older sister this afternoon. They came up for the weekend for some swimming in the pool and kayaking on the lake. They also went to the Goshen Stampede (which the little boy said “was awesome!) After grabbing some Father’s Day brunch here at the Interlaken, they are going to head up north on Route 22 and head to Copake Falls where they will rent bikes at Bash Bish Bicycles right on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail. The rail trail is so scenic and rural, surrounded by lush greenery with stunning views of valleys and farmland. You can easily ride for miles and miles! Bash Bish Bicycles is open every day but Tuesday, from 9am to 5pm. So no need to load up the bikes, take advantage of Bash Bish rentals and take a two wheel ride through the country with your family!

Entertainment choices galore near Interlaken!
There’s no need to go to a big city to have a choice of shows - we have a wide selection of show options right around the Interlaken! Let’s start with Tri-Arts at the Sharon Playhouse, a summer stock theater with shows beginning June 24th running through August 29th. The Wedding Singer, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Oklahoma are the scheduled shows this season, with a few others in between. (Interlaken is sponsor of Divas do More Broadway from August 27th to August 29th!). You will be amazed at the professionalism and talent that comes from this little theater!
Now, if you are looking for a concert rather than a theatrical production, then Infinity Music Hall in Norfolk CT is your place to go! They have some great shows lined up for this season!
Chamber music more your interest? Check out the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, also in Norfolk, CT. Music Mountain in Falls Village, CT offers both Chamber music (Sunday afternoons @ 3pm) as well as Twilight Jazz and Big Band music offered Saturday evenings at 6:30pm. Make Saturday date night and dance the night away outdoors with the sounds of the big band! For more info click here! And don’t forget about Tanglewood up in the Berkshires, famous for their casual lawn seats and the Boston Symphony Orchestra - well worth the scenic 50 minute trip from Interlaken! So lots of “clicking” in this e-mail, but worth it to find out the perfect show for you and your family! If you know of another place for entertainment, be sure to let me know!
Strawberries are in Season in CT!
As I was eating my Greek yogurt topped with locally picked strawberries for breakfast this morning, I decided that now strawberries are my favorite fruit, surpassing raspberries and blueberries (now mind you I might change back when these fruits are in season!). I do buy strawberries at my local grocery store year round, but nothing compares to the sweetness of a freshly picked berry this time of year. I do love to bake with them also (tonight it’s strawberry rhubarb pie at my house!) – but truly they are so sweet there’s no need to add sugar or anything to them – straight up the best! In strawberry season you will catch me at every local farm market buying quarts of them! OK so now you want to know what do strawberries have to do with the Interlaken? Well, just a short and scenic 15 minute ride from the Interlaken to the Ellsworth Hill Orchard and Berry Farm in Sharon, CT will get you fresh strawberries for your very own! You can go the freshest way by picking your own, or buying ones already picked and for sale. Ellsworth has many other fruits and vegetables as well as their picking season is just beginning. Ellsworth is open 8am to 6pm 7 days a week. So now you can add this into your “color coded weekend” getaway this weekend of fun things to do! Can’t spend the night with us? Take Dad out for some brunch at Interlaken this Sunday, Father’s Day, and then head over to Ellsworth! Check out more information on Ellsworth Farm.
