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?
Welcome back, Porsche Drivers!
Along with the pansies at the front entrance is another tell-tale sign of Spring when the regional chapters of Porsche and BMW return to the Lime Rock Race Track. It certainly was a cool morning this morning for the 2010 initiation, but I am sure they didn’t mind the cooler temps of the Spring given the long winter! New this year at Interlaken is our Skip Barber/Racers’ Lounge up in the Penthouse featuring a 55″ plasma TV. Racers will be able to enjoy a very casual atmosphere while enjoying complimentary snacks and the chance to meet all of the other driving enthusiasts – all on top of the Interlaken’s highest point – the Interlaken’s Penthouse Roof. Drive to Interlaken and Lime Rock Race Track this season!
Wedding Trade Shows
We just returned from our 4th trade show this season, this one being held at the Javits Center in NYC this past weekend. Even though the weather was amazing this first weekend of Spring, it still did not keep attendance down, at least not at the Interlaken wedding booth! We received many inquiries – there’s no doubt we will fill these few remaining dates this season, so now it is time to look for 2011 to get your preferred date! Connecticut is among the few states where civil unions can take place, so consider venturing up to the Northwest Corner of the State to see what we have to offer! Visit our website by clicking here! Thank you to all of those that visited our booth – we hope you will come for a tour soon!
Welcome home, ELLORA!
In just a few short months, ELLORA Spa and Sanctuary will call Interlaken property its new home! For the past couple of years, ELLORA has shared her service space between her Brook Street in Lakeville and the Interlaken – but the talks these past few weeks between Laura Hess-Hay, ELLORA’s owner, and Kevin Bousquet, the General Manager of Interlaken have led to the decision of ELLORA moving entirely onto our property. All of the services currently offered at Brook Street, including her Pilates Studio, will be offered here. We are all very excited about this new venture! Now, have you had a service at the Spa yet? Of the 2 dozen services Laura and her staff did this weekend, all of them were raving about them at check-out today. I heard “They are the best” quite often – now it doesn’t get much better than that, does it?! Watch for new packages that will include even more of their services – I am sure there will be one just for you! Until then, click here to see all of ELLORA’s fabulous offerings! I’ll keep you updated on her move-in progress over the next couple of months!
