Your own private lakefront

It’s serene, it’s beautiful, it’s breathtaking. And it’s all yours when you rent our secluded lake cottage on the shores of Lake Wononpakook. Lake Wonon-what you say?! We refer to it as our “back” lake, but really, this lake is just as pretty as our front lake and deserves just as much attention. Our property is nestled between this lake and Lake Wononscopomuc (another “say what”?!), and this is the only accommodation right on the lake. The cottage opens for the season on May 1st, but I snuck down there last week to check on it and I confess, stayed a bit longer than I should have. I didn’t even go into the cottage, being outside sitting at the shore was enough for me. I always thought it would be the perfect spot to write a book. Not that I am looking to write a book, but maybe you are! It’s a little hideaway that I encourage you to check out! If the lake isn’t enough for you, remember that you still have access to all of the amenities at the main property just a short drive away. Weekly rentals are most popular.

Kent Film Festival
Now celebrating its 5th year, the Kent Film Festival is the place to be to learn and be entertained by the filmmaking industry in Kent, CT, just a scenic 30 minute drive from Interlaken. You don’t have to limit yourself to just a weekend away as the festival is a four day event beginning April 22nd through April 25th. Learn about documentaries, feature and short films, attend workshops, and even have the opportunity to meet some upcoming directors and filmmakers. If you have always wanted to visit Kent, now may be the time to do it. Show your ticket to the stores and restaurants as many offer discounts to those attending the festival. And be sure to stop and see the beautiful Kent Falls! We have rooms available that weekend, so be sure to call us now to make your reservations.
The start of a new season always brings a refresh to our already amazing dinner menu in Morgan’s restaurant. The local farms start to produce spring vegetables, of which our new dinner menu has plenty of! How about you start your meal with a Spring Sweet Pea Soup with Lemony Creme Fraiche? Follow it with my favorite – the Superfood Plate, completely vegetarian: Flaxseed Encrusted Portabella, Quinoa-Hemp-Tofu-Spinach Pilaf with a Goji Berry-Spirulina Coulis and an Arugula Salad with a Goji Vinaigrette. How many more Superfoods could that entree possibly offer?! And here I thought the Wild Salmon Superfood plate could not be outdone! Meat lovers, don’t despair – try the Filet Mignon with Spring Asparagus, Wild Mushrooms and Thyme Reduction, or the Organic Roasted Half Chicken with Variety of Spring Vegetables and Herb Butter. And then to dessert, my favorite part of any meal: a refreshing Lemon chiffon mousse cake with marinated strawberries. What will you make for dinner tonight? How about reservations! Call us at 1-800-222-2909!
Out with the old, in with the NEW!
LCD TV’s are on their way! Choose to stay in Sunnyside, Countryside, or on the 1st floor in the Main Building and you will be watching your favorite show on a new 32″ flat screen TV. The TV’s will also have a DVD unit, so bring your favorite movie along as well, or watch a movie you haven’t seen from our complimentary movie library. But don’t stay up too late – you don’t want to miss our complimentary deluxe continental breakfast now offered Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 9am! If you’d rather enjoy breakfast in bed, a room service menu will also be available from 7am to 10am. More exciting changes coming to Interlaken – keep reading my blog or better yet, come visit and see for yourself!
A REAL Spring Deal!
Now is the time to getaway and see Spring start coming to life! Many schools have Spring break in the next several weeks, so surprise your kids and take them away for a true nature 3 day vacation! There are plenty of hiking trails (including the Appalachian Trail) close by to the Interlaken where one can see the first hand signs of this amazing season. The buds on trees, blooming forsythia bushes, crocuses popping up, and have you heard the Peepers peeping yet?
