Romance any time of the year
Today is the official day of showing that special someone in your life how much you love them. Why not celebrate love every day? You can at Interlaken. Valentine's Day can be alot of work, but simple romance doesn't have to be.
We've created the "Survival List for the Romantic at Heart". We've listed several ideas for you to choose from and with a few details and small effort on your part, we'll help you look like a thoughtful and romantic superstar! Here's just one idea...
Arrive back at your Guestroom after a busy day... Upon entering your room, you notice the scent of soft candlelight coming from the bathroom. You hear the sounds of your significant other’s favorite romantic music and notice the bath has been drawn with your honey’s favorite scented bubble bath. The latest copy of your sweet's favorite magazine is laying right next to the booklight and robe.
We've got many more of these sweet and special ideas up our sleeve, so be sure to watch as our list of romantic options grow!
Show the one you love how special they are any day of the week at Interlaken.
Refresh and Renew at Interlaken, Lakeville, CT
We know how long the winter months can be, and a "refresh and renew"ing of the body is usually necessary to get us through to Spring. Perhaps you are like me and work on the weekends, so a mid-week getaway is right up your alley. We've got you covered on both!
Laura Hess-Hay, owner of ELLORA Spa & Sanctuary, just put together this special "Refresh and Renew" Spa Package for mid-week travelers only. Perfect for both single Guests and those traveling with another, this package includes just what you need to invigorate yourself! The true focus of the package is the spa service - and you receive two: an exfoliating, buffing and hydrating facial as well as a classic massage performed by the expert staff at ELLORA Spa. You will have a restful night's sleep in one of our special King accommodations and awake to a veggie egg white omelette (if you choose) in our complimentary continental breakfast room. Refresh and renew at Interlaken!

The Weekend Getaway Package we have created allows you stay either one or two nights and gives you the chance to relax in the country, dine in our restaurant, Morgan's, watch a movie and snack on some popcorn, enjoy some welcome wine or afternoon tea, and the chance to discover an interest you've been curious about. No commitments, no strings - just meeting an expert in their field, wishing to share their passion with you. Pick a weekend and join us!
Finest ingredients, finest dining at Morgan's
What is the latest in Morgan's restaurant? Chef Scimeca fills you in!
Come and visit
Morgan’s and try one of our favorite new additions to the menu, Handmade
Ricotta-Proscuitto Ravioli with White Shrimp, Saffron and Poppy Seeds.
Chef Scimeca and staff hand rolls the very eggy style dough very thinly. The filling is a combination of local Coach Farm Ricotta, Proscuitto di San Danielle, and Herbs.
This is combined with a true flavor of Venice. Venice was the main port city during the spice trade and it’s cuisine is a reflection in that. Saffron and Poppy Seed is a classic combination that highlights the diversity of Italian cuisine. With port cities you get amazing crustaceans, hence the white shrimp.

Fireside Wedding Package
So yes, I am writing about weddings again. It might be that I am attending one this weekend and am just in the mood, or maybe it's just an every mood for me - I'd be happy to talk weddings any day of the week! A few days ago I shared the new winter wedding intimate affair option with you (click here if you missed it) , but maybe your Guest list includes slightly more than 20 but less than the minimum of 100 we offer in our wedding pavilion. Never fear, Interlaken has created a package for those in between! Our new "Fireside Wedding Package" is perfect for 20 - 60 people and includes all you need to unite and celebrate your love. We've done events of this size before so I've got some pictures to share - let me dig them up and I'll post later this month! In the meantime, make an appointment with Stephanie DiDomenico via email and come see the Interlaken's wedding space in person!
