Our fitness room is bulking up! Check out the dashboard of our newest purchase in our fitness room.
This treadmill will keep track of every calorie burned and give you a wide variety of work-outs to get the maximum effectiveness. Our next addition to our fitness room will arrive soon - "Functional Trainer" is all I'm going to say!
Our fitness room equipment will certainly make you work up a sweat, but if you are looking for a more intense and/or varied work-out, you can have that too. Interlaken Guests now have access to the North East Athletic Club just a few minutes away from the Interlaken property in Millerton, NY. We've obtained daily passes to this pretty extensive fitness club that can work every muscle you have, and every muscle you didn't know you had! Just stop by the front desk to sign up for a daily pass.
"What a hidden gem."
The Inn and its staff exceeded our expectations.
The service, atmosphere, room accommodations were wonderful.
We had a great experience.
We so love receiving comments like this! This Guest stayed with us this past weekend and attended the wedding festivities.
Interlaken, my new favorite gemstone.
Sunday is a fun day!
On my way to work this morning and what do I see? The start of the Harlem Valley Rail Ride I blogged about a few days ago. Good thing I wasn't driving!
As I got closer to the town of Millerton (voted by Frommer's as one of the coolest small towns in the U.S.) and the Eddie Collins field, it was one big nest of bicyclers! No offense, work, but I wanted to join them in taking a ride through the beautiful valleys of Dutchess County. After this, we drove on and I saw a PYO sign for Ellsworth Farm for raspberries, blueberries, peaches and plums. I decided I wanted to go picking too! Again, no offense, work. THEN I see a sign for TriArts for the latest show of Altar Boyz, and then another sign for the Canaan Railroad Days. No offense work, but this is tough competition!
All of this happening within minutes of the Interlaken property - take a break from your work and come and stay with us for a variety of summer fun!
