A picture is worth a thousand words…
I just got my delivery from Snapfish for the wedding photos from 2009 held here at Interlaken. Now I see this property almost everyday, and I know how beautiful it is for a wedding venue, but I am always anxious to see any and all photos taken from wedding days. Eric Limon, a very talented photographer from nearby Massachusetts, was the photographer for many of the weddings held here in 2009, and below are just some of the photos he took. Eric was able to capture the beauty of our property perfectly! Now let the pictures speak for themselves!

7. Checking on their house that is being built in the area
8. Celebrating an 8 year wedding anniversary
9. Heading to Infinity Hall for the Mardi Gras party!
10. Visiting the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA
11. Getting an Unstress Facial at ELLORA’s Spa and Sanctuary
And the last reason is..
12. Dining and dancing the night away on our Valentine’s package!
It’s not too late!
Valentine’s weekend is here, and we do have a few rooms still available, so no worries – just give us a call and we can still take care of you! (1-800-222-2909). But, just so you know, there are still rooms available on Sunday (actual Valentine’s Day of course) – and if you have President’s Day off from work, Sunday may work for you just as well. A gentleman just called and he booked the Sleigh Ride package for Sunday night, and his sleigh ride is scheduled for 11am on Monday. How romantic is that? Although we didn’t get the 12 – 17″ of snow predicted, we did get a few inches, just enough to coat the hills of Northwest CT! Perhaps visit the Millbrook Winery for a wine tasting, or stay on our Infinity Hall package – they have an event scheduled Sunday night at 8pm. There is still time to plan for an overnight getaway! Click here to see what packages we offer, or give us a call – we’d love to make arrangements for you and your special someone!
Family reunions at Interlaken
The Interlaken property has been the host of family reunions for many years now, but this year is “the year of reunions” as we have 30% more booked than in any other year in my tenure at Interlaken. That’s incredible! I think there are many reasons our property is the perfect setting for them, one being location. Now, location “first” meaning – 2 hours north of NYC and 2 hours west of Boston – a wonderful halfway meeting point, and “second” location being that we are in the beautiful foothills of the Berkshire mountains. Even though the area is full of arts and culture and hiking and beauty, once here, many families choose just to stay here the entire weekend. From kayaking on the lake (canoeing too!), swimming in the pool, a softball game behind Sunnyside, a pool game in our hospitality center, an evening bonfire complete with cocoa and s’mores – would there be any other reason to leave the property?! The property is truly set up for activities that just bring and keep the family together. How about playing catch with the nephew you haven’t seen in years in our Courtyard? Or sitting on Sunnyside porch, sipping Harney and Sons Iced Tea, catching up with your Great Aunt? Get the family together and start picking some dates, and then contact our Sales Manager Kristy Barto to make the arrangements – she’d be happy to create a package just for you! Email her at email@example.com or click here for more details!
The Full Monty – right here in CT!
At check-out this morning, a couple was raving about the performance they saw last night at the Warner Theater. Being from NYC themselves, I asked them how it compared to Broadway shows, and they said it was excellent, and completely unexpected! They loved just driving on country roads through Northwest Connecticut to the theater, located 40 minutes away in Torrington, CT. The theater has undergone a major revitalization and according to this couple, is extremely elegant. I have yet to go there myself, but will definitely get there this season! The Full Monty runs the weekend of Valentine’s Day, and other upcoming shows include Doubt and Charlotte’s Web. So now you can add this theater in, and along with Infinity Hall, as your entertainment options when staying with us! Check out www.artsnwct.org for a full listing of events in the area.
