The View from 302
I owed you a photo from the Countryside building, remember? (Enjoy the View, June 27th)
Here it is, Room 302. The only room in the eight king-bedded room house that has a screened in porch. Actually, the only one in the building with a porch for that matter! Quiet and peaceful. A good book and a Harney Iced Tea is all you need!
I never expected this cuteness as I wandered down to check on the lakefront this morning. This dog was unbelievably adorable - he was truly goin' fishing.
I do not know if he caught anything but given his determination I can only bet he did. So many pups here this weekend! Vacation with your dog at pet friendly Interlaken this summer!
Panna Cotta Photo
Here it is - THE dessert I was telling you about in June 24th's blog. Thank you, Dan, for snapping a perfect shot of this wonderfully light and yummy dessert! My new favorite, for sure.
Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Rhubarb, Toasted Oat Crumb, and Coconut "Snow"
Procession of People
That is the definition of a Parade, but in this case at Interlaken this morning it wasn't a parade of people but a parade of beautiful Aston Martin's, from vintage to new. I tried to pick one I'd like but couldn't decide, so any one of them will do. Check out more photos on Interlaken's Facebook page!
Enjoy the View
A question often asked of our staff: "Do any of your rooms have a view of the Lake?" The answer to that is YES! We have one accommodation that has a view of the lake, and that is our private lake cottage that I've blogged about. It has the most amazing view of Lake Wononpakook, what Interlaken considers our "back" lake. If you are unfamiliar with this secluded cabin, please read my blog dated June 21st or view the Guestroom/Lakeside tab.
So if the rest of our 85 rooms do not have a lake view, what kind of view do they have, you ask?
Here is a view from a Main Building Second Floor King room. This photo is not grainy - its taken from the screened-in porch. I always tell people these rooms have a distant view of the pool - and this is what I mean. Our Poolside first floor rooms also have this view from their porch (at eye level of course), but without the screened-in feature.
Here is a view from a Main Building Second Floor room - a new view! Prior to this past week, we would have said the view was of just the parking lot, but thanks to proper excavation and proper planting (thank you Junior's and Salisbury Garden Center!) the view is now a lovely one! As the final plantings happen this week, the view will only get better. For those Guests that have the need to keep an eye on their 'baby' in the parking lot, this is still a good choice. The first floor rooms have an even more green view.
This is a view from one of our Townhouse Suites/Adjoining Rooms. Sit and relax on your deck right on the grounds with the 'other side' of the pool and a distant view of the main building. Plenty of lawn space perfect for the kids to toss a frisbee! Adirondack chairs and picnic tables dot this courtyard area.
Peaking through the blinds of a newly installed back door in our Woodside Building. Our pet friendly rooms give you access to a pleasant grassy area for pups and their owners to relax or play.
Here is a view from behind the Sunnyside Building, our Victorian-styled house. The wraparound porch wraps right around to this view - grab an adirondack chair or two and relax the day away. Wine is also a nice compliment to this set-up!
Countryside, our last building. My apologies, but I owe you a photo of the view from that building. The house with eight king bedded rooms is completely occupied right now, so I'll snap one soon and post it at a later date. I can give you a hint, though: there will be green in the photo.
Let's move to the restaurant. Here is a view from Morgan's Deck - just a distant peak of the pool, waving to you while you are enjoying our full breakfast buffet offered every weekend. If you need help in deciding what to do for the day, this view may help with that! (I zoomed in, there's plenty of grassy area in between...) The other views from the breakfast room are of the gardens around the wedding pavilion and trees, more trees. Morgan's deck is also used for private luncheons and events and, very soon, for Morgan's dinner dining.
Remember: the lake is only a short walk away from all of our Guestrooms!
