Congratulations Maplebrook students!
Along with Interlaken having a very busy weekend, Maplebrook School in Amenia, NY has a jam-packed one as well! We are welcoming all parents and friends to the Interlaken this weekend to celebrate many events – including the prom this evening, the Golf Tournament tomorrow and then Commencement on Sunday. I met one young lady in the lobby who was so excited to “wear her pretty pink dress” to the prom – she also said she wants to come back to the Interlaken to get married here one day! I love seeing how relationships are formed over all of these years and that their memories are good ones that make them want to return. The annual Golf Tournament is being held tomorrow where all monies raised benefit the Jane Fernandez Scholarship Fund. Lastly, and certainly not least, are Commencement excercises on Sunday. Congratulations to all graduates for all of your hard work!
We are a huge supporter of Maplebrook School as we host their annual auction every October as well as a conference each February. We also love when we can provide employment opportunities for the students, as we have done so with Riley and Bill, just to name a few. They are proud to get some experience and we are proud to have them part of our culinary team!
What can I do at the Lake today?
On a day like this, a multitude of fun things can be done at Interlaken’s lakefront!
1. Swim out to the dock
3. Read a book in our new chaise loungers with a Harney & Sons Iced Tea at your side
4. Kayak around the perimeter of the lake and admire the beautiful homes
5. Swing with your sweetheart on one of our Cedar Swing
6. Canoe out to the middle of the lake and just relax
7. Have a picnic
8. Let your kids play in the sand
9. Take a nap
10. Swim to the other side!
Perfect Day for a Wedding!
If that is what you were thinking, you are exactly right – and Allison & Brian are here at the Interlaken doing just that – getting married while 200 of their family members and friends take part in the celebration! They are signing the Ketubah as I write this, and then the ceremony at the lakefront will begin, and the reception immediately following in our wedding pavilion. They could not have asked for or received more perfect weather than this!

Celebrate July 4th with Interlaken!
OK, so maybe you missed out on getting away this holiday weekend, but we all know that July 4th is right around the corner and now is the time to make your plans at the Interlaken! We still have rooms available, but call early to get your preferred accommodation! Relax at Sunnyside on the wraparound porch with a Harney and Sons Iced Tea and a good book. Play a game of catch with your granddaughter in our Courtyard area. Take a swim in our outdoor heated pool. Take a canoe out on Lake Wononscopomuc, the deepest lake in Connecticut. Go for a walk on the Appalachian Trail. Taste some wine at Millbrook Vineyards. Challenge your son to tennis! Play 9 holes next door at the Hothckiss Golf Course. See a concert at Infiniti Hall. Enjoy a deep tissue massage from ELLORA. Stop at Morgan’s for dinner and treat your tastebuds to an amazing dinner. Rent our Honeymoon Suite and take an evening dip in the hot tub and listen to the peepers. And don’t miss the fireworks at Lime Rock Park!
Three of our neighboring private schools – Hotchkiss School, Salisbury School and Berkshire School - all have commencement ceremonies tomorrow, so we’d like to wish all of the students and families a big Congratulations! Doesn’t it seem like yesterday that you first visited us for that oh-so-important interview? And now here it is, four years later, with many visits to the Interlaken and the beautiful Litchfield Hills behind you! Many students fall in love with this area and make many return trips back to visit this special place, so we hope to see all of you again in the near future! Thank you to all of those who have stayed at the Interlaken – it was completely our pleasure to serve you!
