Groundhog Phil says WINTER for CT?
I truly think all of us New Englanders are ready and waiting for it, so thank you Mr. Groundhog Phil for confirming six more weeks of winter! But define winter please: Cold temps and lots of snow? Medium temps and freezing rain? Mild temps and no precipitation at all? It's funny how one can now add that last definition in as that is what we've had so far! But really - the local ski resorts are ready and Interlaken is waiting! We want you to take advantage of our discounted ski packages and hit the slopes! We also want you to take your sweetheart on a romantic horse-drawn sleigh ride through the beautiful Connecticut countryside - snow is needed please, Mr. Groundhog! Now mind you snow is not 100% necessary for a weekend getaway at Interlaken as we do have many packages that don't require it - enjoy wine tasting, a romantic dinner and a movie, a couples massage, a night on the town - check out all of our packages to find the perfect weather permitting one for you!
An Intimate Winter Wedding Destination
Although Interlaken can host your special day accommodating up to 220 Guests, there are also many of you looking for a more intimate affair. Interlaken can still be your destination choice! Gather up to 20 of your closest family members, bring them to Interlaken, exchange your vows as the snow falls, and then have them toast your love with champagne over a three course dinner near the fire in Morgan's restaurant. You can keep it as simple as this, or you can include overnight accommodations as well to make a weekend of it. We will work with you to make the smallest of affairs as special as the grandest of affairs! Click here for more details.
D E M O L I T I O N
Yes, it is happening here at the Inn - the second floor bathrooms in our main building are history, gone, out of here! I walked through the "construction zone" today and through the dust you can see the just the basic structure of these bathrooms, anxiously awaiting the new granite-tiled shower units, granite-topped wood vanities, glass mosaic tiled walls - all done in warm beige tones. In two more weeks the renovation will be complete, quickly followed by a newly carpeted second floor hallway. The second floor will be hot, hot, hot! I hope you love the new look as much as I am excited to tell you about it! Oh, and no worries if you have plans to stay with us in the next couple of weeks - all of our outer buildings are all set for your arrival!
Life Discovery Series
Isn’t it fun knowing about new things before the rest of the Interlaken world finds out about them? Keep reading to find out just another reason to visit us!
We are introducing the “Life Discovery Series”, a 90 minute class to be held Saturdays with a different topic each week to give you the chance to learn something new. Always wanted to try Quilting? Claire can get you started with the basics. Love tea? Learn the difference between black, white and green from one of the Harney family members. Do you wish your dog had better manners? Virginia will give you some obedience techniques. These are just a few examples of the programs we will be hosting in just one month from today! If you plan on visiting the Interlaken for a little overnight getaway, check out the soon-to-be posted “Life Discovery Series” calendar and pick your date accordingly. Friday and Saturday night packages will also be available that will include admission to the class, so be sure to watch our package page for that as well. Our first weekend is February 25th – come join us as Brandon Scimeca teaches you how to cook Vegan!
Have you met Jade yet?
If you have visited us mid-week and have wandered into our Vineyard room to get your day started with our complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, then you have met Jade. Jade is the ever-smiling, ever-friendly young lady visiting us from Brazil that seems to get everyone’s day started on the right foot. “Would you like an omelette?” is always Jade’s question to you after her cheery “Good Morning!” Fresh eggs, fresh veggies, chopped meat – Jade will make it exactly how you want it. Here are what some Guests are saying about Jade and our mid-week complimentary continental breakfast:
- The Brazilian girl in the dining room was fantastic. So cheerful and kind
