Interlaken Inn is Expanding!

For the past several weeks, I've been watching the Interlaken's website expand.  Have you noticed?  Just put your cursor on one of the tabs at the top and watch what happens.  There are so many new drop down pages to choose from, many new packages are being offered, new photos have been added, pages have been redesigned - it's gone mad!  Let me highlight some of the my favorites on our website!

  • Testimonial pages.  When I read something that makes me happy, I want to share it.  When Guests of Interlaken share their positive comments with us, we'll share them with you.  Read what people are saying on the Home, Wedding, Meetings, and Dining tabs.
  • Summer packages.  Right now we are offering certain packages on certain weekends in May and June.  Take advantage of the tremendous savings by booking one today as rooms are limited.
  • Affordable Weddings.  Flexible on your wedding date?  Visit this page as we post certain dates that will give you the perfect wedding at the perfect price!
  • Unique Meeting Venues.  Dare to be different and forego the traditional meeting room.  Book your offsite conference with us and we'll find a unique location conducive to a successful meeting!

Excellent dinner, lovely breakfast, a perfect room - Interlaken Inn

 I received these comments from a Guest who just stayed with us.  Can anyone see the smile on my face?  Believe me, the entire Interlaken staff is smiling!   

We really enjoyed our stay at the Interlaken Inn.  Although it was too brief, we had an excellent dinner and a lovely breakfast and a perfect room and so appreciated being upgraded to the second floor.   The decor is great and the location is so convenient to Hotchkiss!    We look forward to seeing you in the future, whether or not Nina decides to enroll at Hotchkiss in the fall.   We only live a few hours away, but would welcome the chance to stay with you again when we visit our daughter.   It is very likely that she will, unless she decides to stay at home.   What a wonderful part of the country you are in  -- pure heaven!  I've stayed at hotels near Williams College (countless time) and Exeter and Andover as well as at the very deluxe/fancy Washington Duke Inn (countless times).   Also hotels near UVA and Northwestern University and more than I have time to remember or describe right now.........we have five children and our Hotchkiss candidate is the youngest!   Your hotel is right up at the top in terms of quality and service and value and your restaurant was better than most!  Congratulations.

Thank you so much for a very relaxing and comfortable stay.
