Looking you up and down
Yes, that is what I did to this tree! There is so much color popping in and around Interlaken as we head toward the fall foliage peak season. This beautiful intense tree welcomed me as I walked into work today. Check out the sky! We've had some dreary weather lately so when the sky is clear it provides the perfect background to the beauty Mother Nature is giving us. Now is the time to make your plans to visit us - you know the ride to us from wherever you come from will be pretty and will certainly remain that way as you wander the vast Interlaken property. Come and kick up some leaves with us! Peak season has even yet to arrive.
As you travel west on Route 112 coming down the hill, one can't help but notice the beautiful football field on the Hotchkiss School campus, right next door to the Interlaken property. As this one (meaning me) is driving past it heading east I can't help but take a picture of the Bearcats in action. Another sure sign of fall!
We look forward to the arrival of all Hotchkiss families for the upcoming Parents weekend! Interlaken is open year round so you can visit anytime.
Stars of September
As much as I love going out to dinner this time of year, I also find dining out in the fall time to be stressful. It is so hard to choose between all of the amazing flavors! How can one choose between pumpkin and butternut squash ravioli, or an heirloom tomato salad vs. baby arugula with fresh pear? And dessert is certainly a challenge as well - pumpkin bread pudding, maple walnut cake or fresh apple cobbler? I suppose one way to win this little battle is to dine out often to catch all of the wonderful options! Have you caught any local flavors at Morgan's yet? Let's see what those dining in Morgan's chose the most in the month of September:
The entree star of September was: Grilled Grass-fed N.Y. Strip with House Worcestershire, Horseradish, Garlicky Spinach.
The second star was the Pasta Bolognese: Pappardelle Pasta with Locally Raised Beef Ragu made in a traditional style.
Tied for third: East Coast Red Snapper with Red Pepper Crust, Local Sweet Corn, Young Scallions and Grilled Wild King Salmon, Marinated Cucumbers and Leeks, Saffron Yogurt, Pistachio.
(I had the pleasure of enjoying this dish!)
The dessert winner - and I knew what is was going to be before I even looked: Local Apple Fritters with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!
I was curious as to the most ordered appetizer in the month and it looks like our Guests went traditional:
Classic Caesar Salad with Housemade Dressing, Marinated White Anchovies, Croutons
Morgan's is open every night and also has nightly specials. Reserve a table today!
Yes, color in New England has arrived!
There always seems to be one tree that stands out amongst the rest, and this one, even on a dreary New England day, is the perfect representation of the vibrant autumn colors just starting to grace Northwestern Connecticut and the Southern Berkshires. Just picture it with a bright blue sky behind it and it can knock your fall socks off! Even though this tree is fully changing, no worries, we haven't hit peak season yet. Now is the perfect time to plan a fall foliage getaway to Interlaken!
Notice the little guy in the photo enjoying the signs of fall as well.
Attention couples getting married at Interlaken this month - the colors are here in the courtyard area and more will be coming! The lakefront is dotting with color as well, just waiting for you to arrive!

Take a sneak peak at the new Interlaken property map that is in the works! We admit the current one presented to you at check-in does work, but this one is way prettier.
