Happy New Year!
Before we happily welcome in 2014 (with lots of goodness planned at Interlaken by the way), it is only appropriate to look back at the top events of 2013. No worries, I won't make you go back into the Blog Archives and read each blog, I'll do a nice recap right here for you.
What was New:
This category is a long one!
We were happy to show off our first floor renovated bathrooms, still equipped with a bathtub for those that like to take a relaxing bath.
The Vineyard room where we host our mid-week complimentary deluxe continental breakfast as well as farewell wedding brunches, family reunion dinners, bridal showers, social retreats, corporate meetings, wedding ceremonies - a room for any event!
Both our wedding couples and ELLORA Spa goers were happy with the contstruction of separate entrances into the Atrium building. The foyer for the Atrium was decorated beautifully for each wedding event this season.
This one is big: Our total Commitment to Clean! With a video introducing our new program, we purchased all new 300 thread count linens for every Guest bed on property and vowed to you that everything on the bed, including the cozy wonder blanket is fresh upon your arrival. You'll never have to worry of when was the last time the duvet was washed or if the pillow was tossed on the floor.
William Kent: his artwork graced our property with his amazing wood sculptures.
Our Intermingle Hour every Wednesday from 5pm to 6pm - we enjoyed meeting our Guests and local business staff members each week over a seasonal cocktail and freshly prepared hdo's. My favorite location? See below. Every Wednesday - come and say hello!
We also introduced many new packages in 2013, including the "Birthday Bliss Spa Package", "Tasting Menu Getaway" and the "Winter Hibernation Package". Also check out "Last Minute Travel Deals in CT" - the best place to check often for the best deals offered at Interlaken!
2013 was a great year and 2014 will be just as great, if not better!
Escape this Winter
Meet Britt the Bear.
Just ask Britt the Bear what she wants to do all winter and she'll say she wants to "sleep" all winter long.
When I go away on vacation I plan my days to the fullest - always wanting to see and do everything. When I chat with Guests while making reservations I always share all the fun things there are to do at the property and in the local area. What if, even just once this winter, you decided to go away and do the complete opposite?
Relax. Rest. Sleep. Just do nothing but enjoy each other's company. This is where our new "Winter Hibernation Getaway" Package comes in.
No alarm clocks, no schedules, no time restraints. Complete relaxation. We'll make sure the temperature in your Guestroom is the perfect warmth for you. We'll make sure your meals are delivered when you are hungry. We'll make sure no one disturbs you. Just shut your eyes and relax. We'll make sure your time away is truly dormant this winter at Interlaken.
One night away is all you need to revive yourself after the busy holiday season. The Winter Hibernation Getaway package includes everything you need to make doing nothing a complete success. Escape to Interlaken in Northwest Connecticut soon!

Love is truly in the air at Interlaken this weekend.
Just this morning at our private snowy lakefront, this nice young man in the center proposed to this nice young lady at his side - and she said YES! Champagne for the family is in order, compliments of Interlaken! We love being a part of such special moments. Given they were here as Guests of the wedding last night they are well aware of the services we offer (hint hint) - we would LOVE to welcome them back to unite them in marriage!
Remember the amazing moment when you got engaged? We'd love to hear it and share it! Email us so we can post it on our Romantic Engagement Stories page for all of us hopeless romantics and for those that may need some ideas on how to pop the big question!
Best wishes M & M!
Winter Wedding Wonderland
A dusting of light snow arrived just in time for this evening's winter wedding held in Interlaken's heated pavilion.
The smell of fresh pine and a twinkling of white lights greet Guests for the cocktail hour, immediately putting them in a festive mood.
Evening winter receptions provide the dark backdrop through the pavilion panels, thus emphasizing the candlelit glow, LED spheres and the glimmering Christmas Tree.
The tree was magnificent! The smell was natural perfection. And if you look closely you will see the wedding favors hanging from the branches - fresh maple syrup bottles for each Guest to take home.
We can never forget about the cake display - delicious cupcakes in this case.
A winter wedding in picturesque New England - we'd love to plan it with you. Visit our Winter Wedding page for more details.
Love - ageless and evergreen.
