July Wedding Weekend
A perfect day for anything and everything outdoors in New England today, but particularly wonderful for an outdoor wedding event! We've got one happening here at Interlaken for 215 Guests, and naturally I was out in the lovely air snapping some photos - lucky me, and lucky them for such beautiful weather! Congratulations Lindsay and Michael!
Frankie's vacation at Interlaken
Hello Blog Readers,
My name is Frankie and I stayed at the Interlaken this past week. Just so you have a furry face with a name, here I am with my loyal owner, getting ready to go inside the pet friendly room in the Sunnyside building.
I really enjoyed myself at the Interlaken and miss all the very nice people (including the children I saw) who showered such love and affection on me. I felt like a King! The doggie bed and blanket that were in my room upon my arrival were very cozy, and the treats that the staff gave me were so yummy. Although there were many reasons my owners chose to stay at Interlaken, I overheard them saying that they mainly chose Interlaken because of the accommodations that were available to me. They really love me.
The Interlaken’s property is pretty big, and we seemed to wander around everywhere. They have cool metal animals all around the property. Of course I liked the pouncing dog in the front of the main building the best. We also took a walk down to the lakefront, and although I just got my paws wet, the water was refreshing and kept me cool. I felt so relaxed being at Interlaken. I think my owners liked it too as I heard them say they had a great time and would return if they had the chance. Paws up to Interlaken!
Harlem Valley Rail Ride 2012
The signs are everywhere in the Northwest Corner, reminding bikers that Sunday, July 22nd is the day to cycle up to 100 miles with lots of support along the way! I write often about the beautiful Harlem Valley Rail Trail and suggest to Interlaken Guests to bring their bikes (or rent one nearby) and take advantage of the miles of the car-less trail that weaves through the valleys of Dutchess and Columbia Counties in New York. The views, the fresh air, nature - it's a lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon in the great outdoors! This Sunday, however, biking is taken to the next level! With routes that include 25 miles up to 100 miles, you'll be supported with both marshalls keeping a watchful eye on you and rest areas that include nutritional energy to keep you pedaling through the amazing routes in Dutchess County. All of the fun starts in Millerton, NY (another place we recommend our Guests visit) and ends there as well with a festival and a dip in the town pool. Click here for more details on this upcoming active endeavor!
P.S. Stay with us Sunday night after your day of biking and we'll upgrade you complimentary to one of our main building king bedded rooms for a very comfortable night's sleep! If you are so invigorated on Monday, check out these routes for some more cycling fun!
Soap Q & A
Q: How many bars of soap were created from the 55lbs of soap collected from Interlaken Guestrooms and sent to Clean the World for the first half of 2012?
This means 293 bars of soap will be sent to children and families worldwide.
Thank you, Interlaken Guests, for staying with us, and thank you, Clean the World, for recycling this soap to help those in need. This is definitely a win-win for all!
What is happening in Interlaken's backyard this lovely evening in July?
Wait, let's get a closer look....
Ahh, a Backyard BBQ! What a perfect night to be enjoying a feast outside, complete with all the fixins'!
Salmon steaks, hot dogs, grilled hamburgers, barbecued chicken, relish bar, baked idaho potato bar with condiments, tossed salad of baby greens in vinaigrette, old-fashioned baked beans with bacon, onion and molasses, corn on the cob and you got it, strawberry shortcake for dessert. YUM!
Many of our family reunions celebrate their last evening with us by having a traditional BBQ held right here on our patio area and into the courtyard. This one is for about 30 people and they couldn't have asked for a better summer night to have it. We have many dining options for families all of sizes - click here to find out more details about having your family reunion here at Interlaken. Enjoy!
