“Perfect Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013

Just stayed for the weekend and took advantage of their Weekend Getaway package. Excellent time. Room was clean and updated and everyone at the hotel was extremely nice. The lake is beautiful and we were nervous at first that there are only 5 canoes and we better get on one fast before they are gone, but that's not the case. Everyone kept rotating and going out for a ride and really had a blast. The pool was a bit chilly. They say it's heated and maybe it was, but sure didn't feel like it. Maybe it was the 5 inches of rain from Friday, so we will wait until our next visit before ruling on the pool heater. Having a restaurant on the premises was a real nice touch, but definitely not a kid friendly restaurant for dinner with the length of the meal. The waitstaff is slower then slow. Friday took 30 minutes before we even got a hello and 45 minutes before water or a drink was on the table. I wouldn't say the restaurant was booming with a crowd at that time either which is what really confused us. Saturday was a bit better but still ridiculously slow. The food however is fantastic. The breakfast buffet was also great. Fresh omelette station was hot and cooked perfectly. The waitstaff at the breakfast should be hired to work dinner because they are extremely attentive and on top of everything which is what they need for dinner. Only other issue we had is the spa must not be all that big. We never made it inside, but when we called they were completely booked for the weekend. So if you plan on using any spa services, make sure to book in advance. Overall a great place to stay and would definitely recommend to others and will be coming back ourselves.

Room Tip: We had a 2nd floor pool, no noise issues, screened in porch to avoid the bugs which was great.

My husband booked this getaway for us as an anniversary gift and we truly had a great weekend at The Interlaken Inn. Our stay was July 12 to July 14th. From the minute we checked in and received a warm welcome at the desk to the time we left on Sunday morning we kept remarking to each other what a great place it was. We had a beautiful room in the main building and it was spacious and quiet, the room looked recently remodeled and the decor was great. The grounds are beautifully cared for and the amenities are more than sufficient. Morgan's was beyond our expectations and a good value. Thanks to the staff of The Interlaken Inn for making our belated 25th Anniversary getaway one we will always remember. We hope to visit again soon in the near future, and will continue to follow the Inn on Facebook

Room Tip: Main building was convenient

It was our first time staying at the inn and we had a wonderful time! I have told many people already about the amazing, attentive, friendly and professional staff. We all enjoyed the pool - and really liked the nice touch of having the attached umbrellas. We took the kids for a canoe ride, ate a take out lunch from your restaurant and picnicked at the tables near your pool; and ate dinner at your restaurant. We were absolutely pleased with each experience. I especially liked the fact that the Inn serves local, fresh food. Our room was small - and we knew that going in - but it worked out perfectly for our family of four. It was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. We believe we've found a gem, and will definitely be back.

This place is consistently great. The newly redone pet friendly rooms are beautiful. The pool was inviting. The lake is so clean, and the grounds are fabulous. The staff kept asking if we needed anything. We felt pampered.

We frequent this inn because we feel it is a great place.

Room Tip: Package deals are a great value. Woodside pet friendly rooms are great.

This place is very nice although somewhat pricey. We go to drive at Lime Rock Park which is right down the road. It's certainly very comfortable, and the breakfast lady is the best!!
There are better deals but they don'e have quite the same appeal as a place like this which is different.

Room Tip: We liked Sunnyside.

I met college friends - we've been getting together for over 40 years - for 2 days and nights at the Interlaken Inn. Everything about our stay there was spectacularly satisfying, highlighted throughout by the extraordinary staff, whose warmth, hospitality, and attention to detail left a lasting impression. And the place is so beautiful, in its natural state, as lovely a setting as could be imagined, with unique landscaping details everywhere, clearly given high priority and lots of attention. The food, all of it, was delicious, with high grade service and presentation, Breakfast was a treat, with a wide range of offerings, really good coffee. I skipped lunch and looked forward very much to dinners, which made us all very happy. There's a big pool with water at an ideal temperature. From check-in to our reluctant departure - everything was handled graciously with a high degree of professionalism and competence. We are all very glad we came here and unanimously eager to return next summer.

Room Tip: We all stayed in "Sunnyside", a gorgeously restored Victorian house with a wraparound porc...

We have had the good fortune to do quite a bit of travel and Interlaken Inn is one of the tops on our list! Our family gathered for a small reunion over July 19-21. From the front desk welcome, the delightful lake, the generous and charmining rooms to the delicious breakfast buffet...Interlaken gets our 14 thumbs up. Though the resort was fully booked, there was never a crowd nor any feeling of the staff being overwhelmed. Sally at the breakfast buffet is a delight! Made it so easy to linger over a second cup of coffee. From Interlaken we traveled to Millerton, NY to their quaint town and we hiked in Salisbury. So much to do, we will return.
