Historical Traveler Reviews Interlaken Inn Lakeville
The Interlaken is my favorite.
A quick note to say that the Interlaken is my favorite place to stay when visiting my daughter at Hotchkiss School. We've been travelling to Lakeville for two years now (two years left to go!) and have stayed (at least once) in all of the area inns. Nothing compares to the Interlaken in comfort and service, especially if you want something to do while visiting the area. It's a nicely kept inn, and I reccomend it to my fellow "parents".
Charming, with quiet places for me.
I recently made reservations to stay at a local bed & breakfast in Lakeville, so that I could visit my son at school. I am going to keep the name of the B&B anonymous so that I don't hurt them in any way.
I arrived at the small inn and everyon seemed very firndly, but I go the distinct feeling that I was viewed as an "outsider" and that somehow everyone else there knew each other. I checked in and went upstairs to my room to discover that it would be entirely too noisy for me to stay the night.
When I spoke to the gentleman at the desk he informed me that the noisiness was from a gathering of locals, and that they would be done by 9 or 10 pm. I proceeded to ask to check out anyway, and asked for other lodging close by. I found my way to the Interlaken Inn, and asked for the quietest room that she had available.
I was given an upgraded room in one of their lovely buildings called Sunnyside House. I got back into my car, and to be honest, had a bit of a time finding the Sunnyside House. Interlaken has a number of different houses and buildings, as the place is quite expansive. Once I found my room - it was everything I hoped it would be, and more. Very clean, charming and above all - quiet.
I am a frequent traveller to New England and on many occasions I have stopped at the beautiful Interlaken Resort. So many different options for accommodations and wonderful amenities. After reading the most recent comment in Tripadvisor, I felt I must help the Management avoid this unjust bashing.
I stayed at many of the local B&B's (in fact, that is all there is up in that general vicinity). Not one of the other properties even had a place to take a walk, let alone a pool or exercise room. Do yourself a favor - pack up the kids and enjoy a wonderful weekend at this beautiful resort.
Noisy charmless Interlaken Inn - Lakeville CT
How this hotel stays in business is beyond me -- it's dreadfully noisy -- there's simply NO quiet rooms, all pre-assigned so changing when you check in is IMPOSSIBLE!! There are other much better choices -- avoid this AT ALL OPPORTUNITIES!
We can't wait to get back to our country resort.
At the Interlaken we were always impressed by the friendly and accommodating demeanor by which we are greeted at the front desk. We find the rooms comfortable and clean with cheerful service and we love being able to have our dog 'Flirt' with us.
Eating in the dining room is relaxing; the service is formal and professional as well as warm and friendly. We have recommended Interlaken to our friends and continue to do so.
One of the things that keeps us coming back is that everyone is so accommodating, doing everything with a smile whether it is housekeeping, the dining room or front desk. Right now at Interlaken we have a three week reservation for the coming summer and are in the midst of planning a family reunion there. We can't wait to get back to "our" country resort inn.
The Interlaken Inn - it's wonderful any season!
I recently stayed at The Interlaken Inn and it was wonderful. The accommodations are charming and the visit was a welcome escape from the city. Also, the food is delicious and the portions are so generous you really feel you're getting a lot of value for the money. The entire staff was the best - friendly, attentive and so helpful in discovering all the historic attractions in the area. This was the third time I visited and each time I enjoy it more! I'd recommend it for any season.
Great place to stay
I just completed a fabulous weekend at this intimate resort called the Interlaken Inn. We were celebrating my grandmother's birthday and it was a chance for all of us to get together for the first time in many years. From the moment we arrived we felt as if we were the only Guests on property. The fireplace in the lobby and certainly Winston behind the front desk were just so inviting. Some of our family members stayed in the more modern main building, but I chose the more New England quintessential Sunnyside building. My room, Room 159, I recommend highly - king-sized bed, wicker furniture overlooking beautiful fields and woods. We planned a private barbecue down by the lakefront and all details were carried out perfectly. On Sunday morning, I finally realized just how busy the property was. When we were checking out, there was a wedding couple and another conference group there also. All weekend we felt we were the only Guests and to find out that the property was filled was quite a surprise. We are already thinking about planning a regular reunion at Interlaken.
Not all that I expected for the price
We spent a weekend there for a family reunion. There were other reunions and a wedding on the same weekend. For the price, I felt the room could have been better (e.g., spider webs in the bathroom) and it was damp. The room and (especially) the bathroom were too small for 4 people to share. I would recommend the 2-story townhouse if you have 2+ children so you can provide your own meals and have elbow room. The teens enjoyed the game room. The setting is beautiful. Dinner at Morgan's was okay but pricey. Bring your own tennis rackets and balls if you plan to play. No extras were provided. The continental breakfast was dissappointing. Not sure I would go back.
Interlaken Inn falsly advertised themselves on their website. If you bring your pet you CAN'T leave it in the room, so bring food because you won't be able to eat out. My fiance had a tick inbedded in her thigh and she wanted to leave so we checked out and were refunded our money. However, the next day their manager said that the night person wasn't able to do that so he recharged our credit card without our permission. Wouldn't recommend to our worst enemy!!!!
P.S. Accomodations were poor

... Royale service, and I couldn’t resist Champagne with black currant liqueur. I’ve never had one before. My choices were Lobster and Scallop Sausage with Root Vegetables and Citrus Sauce as an appetizer, Venison Saddle with Vegetables and Foie Gras Bread Pudding as a main, and Panna Cotta with Grapefruit Sections in Pink Grapefruit Soup for dessert.
It was kind of fru-fru food but very tasty. And even at the reasonable sounding rate of $25 for lunch, ...
The morning of New Years Eve, we jumped in the car with Sasha and set out to see some more of Connecticut. We saw adorable town after adorable town, and had lunch at an old fashioned general store near Goshen. We drove through Cornwall, a perfect little town with a 200 year old covered bridge. The day trip ended with a hike to the top of a beautiful hill, where we were able to document the last day of the year with justice. ...
... and Christina were home. Unfortunately, the rest were in class. I arrived at Marist at 10:40am and was leaving by 10:52am, Mom read in the car while i visited with Amber and Christina. I didn't get to see everyone but nevertheless, I was extremely excited to catch up with them quickly before they left for class. We watched videos and saw pictures of what they had ...
This was a very nice little town on the border on Connecticut and New York. It was so noce we almost stayed for the winter. The problem was that it was down in a valley so getting out of the valley with icy roads would have been a problem. During the summer there was the Houstonic River that ran along side the town. This place was beautiful during the fall. Also saw Bull's Covered Bridge. Too bad they did not have a campground ...
Elizaville is a tiny town in the centre of the Hudson Valley.
A beautiful valley which the mighty Hudson River runs. Seems a great growing area for produce. Apple and stone fruit orchards but varying standards with tidy intensely planted orchards to run down ones, with wide plantings and old dying trees. Most on hill sides as land not flat in region.
