March 2023: Something for Everyone at The Interlaken Inn
We believe in celebrating the little things and having fun all year long, even in the quieter months. This March, we have we have something for everyone at The Interlaken Inn, so you can plan a trip for yourself or grab your friends to enjoy an experience together! Which one are you?
For the Book-Lover
Reading is a big past-time in quiet lake towns like Lakeville, CT. At the Interlaken, we have a free library in our Atrium building so guests can take a book and leave a book during their stay. It's exciting to see what you will find in there! In town, we have The Scoville Memorial Library, which opened in 1803 and was the first free library in the U.S! Plus, in the adorable town of MIillerton, NY (5 minutes away) you can find Oblong Books, which opened in 1975 and has been a local staple ever since. To celebrate National Reading Day, book a room March 2-5th and receive a special discount upon arrival to shop at Oblong Books over the weekend!
For the Food & Beer Connoisseur
In the neighboring town of Canaan, CT there is Greats Fall Brewery, located in the historical Canaan Union Station Railroad Depot. Since their opening in 2018, Great Falls has created exceptional craft beer and hosted numerous events to keep up with the community. This past year, their Lazy Hazy House brew was ranked #21 in the nation by Beer Connoisseur Magazine. On March 17th, the Great Falls team will be taking over Morgan's Restaurant to host trivia and pour $5 beers! Plus, we will be serving St. Patrick's Day Specials and offering rooms at $209 for the night. There will a cash prize for trivia and raffles, all to benefit Project SAGE.
For the Wellness Guru
Practicing self-care has evolved from a fad involving lots of bubble baths and face masks to something people truly take seriously. More and more we are finding the guests want to fell well even when they are on vacation. Practicing wellness at the Interlaken Inn is easy. For instance, we are on 30 acres of beautiful land filled with trees, flowers, and of course- the lake. Surrounding yourself with nature is proven to be grounding and help calm common anxiety. On March 24th, we are hosting a weekend getaway centered around wellness. The package includes all the events and an overnight night stay, or the events can be individually booked. First, guests will first learn the art of floral arrangements with Bantam Blooms. A calm and mindful activity like this is a great way to challenge your brain and be screen-free. Then, Riga Yoga will teach a morning class at the lakefront! Need we say more?
For the Dog-Lover
We built our pet-friendly building, The Woodside House, in 1979 because we loveeee dogs! The Interlaken Team is full of furry friends fun fact: Morgan's Restaurant is named after a dog! As pup fans ourselves, we know how hard it can be to leave them behind for vacations. So, bring them with you and let them explore the beautiful area by your side! National Puppy Day is March 23rd. On March 23rd, any pet-friendly rooms booked will receive special treats upon arrival, room service for dinner, and a map of our favorite dog-friendly hiking and walking trails!
March is Women's History Month, which was sanctioned in 1987 to celebrate the many contributions women had made to society and the progress that was made towards creating equal rights. At the Interlaken Inn, there are more women working here than men! To celebrate Women’s History Month, a portion of our proceeds from the entire month will benefit Project SAGE (formerly Women's Support Services) Lakeville's own non-profit that supports an end to relationship violence. They offer resources to educate people of all genders, class types, and sexual orientations to have healthy relationships and happy lives. Simply by being here at The Interlaken Inn, you will be supporting this important cause and celebrating Women's History Month!
