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.
Take it at Interlaken!

Here's what was in mine today, right in a row:
We had a lovely time while staying at Interlaken. We enjoyed some relaxation while walking around your lovingly maintained property and canoeing on the peaceful lake.
Our dinner at Morgan's was delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed our champagne in our room. Our room was clean and the furnishings were just right. We spent time on our private balcony and were able to enjoy the fresh air while sipping our champagne.
Thank you for a lovely time. We look forward to more visits to Interlaken Inn in the not too distant future!
I really like your Inn. I have nothing negative to say. You are my hotel of choice.
Our stay at Interlaken this past weekend was perfect. It was an important occasion: The stay was a mini-vacation gift to our 10 year old son, Gram, who is a motorsport fanatic. It was his first official experience witnessing live racing (with the Saturday SCCA finals at Limerock Racepark) so we were looking for a place to rest and enjoy his enthusiasm.
You delivered in full…the room, the grounds, the dining…all perfect. He especially loved the second floor balcony to the room.
A unit with two full sized beds can tend to be tight for two adults and a young boy but your lodging is wonderful. We’re curious about the other lodging options and fully intend to explore the potential there at our next visit to Interlaken and Limerock.
Thank you again for being part of such a terrific family experience.
Thank you to these Guests for making the Interlaken staff smile! We look forward to serving you all again soon!
