My husband and I were married at the Interlaken Inn on August 19th. We had a beautiful weekend spent lakeside with endless activities for our guests to partake in. Seldom things in life are more stressful than planning a wedding. Tiffany, however, made the planning and... Read More celebration experience not only stress-free, but enjoyable. She even went out of her way to stay in contact and respond to my many emails while she was away on vacation. The day went by so fast (as everyone said it would) and I wish we could do it all again!

After looking at several venues, my wife and I visited the Interlaken Inn and when we saw the ceremony location by the lake, we were sold. We simply could not (and cannot) imagine a more beautiful place to get married, and we were not disappointed. The Interlaken Inn offered a...

Guests swam in the lake, played games on the lawn, and took advantage of the beautiful grounds - exactly how we planned it. They even arranged for good weather.

Beyond perfection in every way! My husband and I planned a very intimate destination wedding at the Lakeside Cottage. The property was so serene and secluded. It felt like a true country escape but with upscale amenities. The cottage was clean, cute, well-decorated, and stocked... Read More with little creature comforts. Interlaken Inn’s customer service is some of the best I have experienced in any of my travels. Since this was a destination wedding, it was very important that we had help planning from a distance. Michelle was so responsive and helped us plan every step of the way to make sure that our fantasy became a reality. She was personally invested in our day and genuinely cared about making it magical, down to the very last detail. I’d go so far as to say she was more enthusiastic and helpful than even a Maid of Honor! The Interlaken Inn makes every effort to create a custom and memorable experience for each of its guests. The attention to detail is remarkable and everything possible is done to make you feel special. The catering and onsite restaurant, Morgan’s, are astounding. The presentation of the food is more than Instagram worthy. It looks ripped from the pages of Saveur Magazine. The preparation would impress even the harshest food critic. The farm to table experience can be appreciated with every bite, as the freshness and quality ingredients distinguish it from the average wedding fare. I promise that once you have your wedding at the Interlaken Inn, you will want to come back for every anniversary. I know we do!

I truly cannot give enough praise to Interlaken Inn for coordinating an amazing wedding for us. I was married there at the end of May, and it was everything I could've hoped and more. We had a Friday night Bonfire which was a great way to kick off the weekend. On the wedding day... Read More we had our unique ceremony down by the lake, a cocktail hour in the beautiful garden, dinner and reception in the tent and an after party in the game room/study. Everything went so smoothly and it is evident their team is very well trained, which eased all the stress of the day and allowed us to really enjoy it to the fullest. I am not the greatest planner but Tiffany really pulled it all together and made sure the day went exactly as hoped! Their food is truly amazing – high restaurant quality and not at all like generic wedding food. We also loved that all of our guests could stay on premise, not have to worry about transportation, and maximize our time together. I keep thinking back on how perfect it all turned out, definitely a day I will cherish forever. I would highly, highly recommend Interlaken for those looking for a beautiful, well organized venue. We keep getting comments on how memorable and fun the day was, and it was all thanks to the Interlaken!

Writing this review as someone who just toured the Interlaken Inn and was so impressed with the service, I had to write this! I have not booked my wedding yet, but after writing back and forth with Teri and Michelle, I visited the beautiful Interlaken Inn once by myself and... Read More again to show my mother & my fiancé. Even in the middle of winter, the venue is breathtaking (just take a look at the gorgeous photos!). Teri showed me around the first time and spent well over the "normal" amount of time with me answering all my questions and showing me every inch of the property. The next visit, Michelle - who is the warmest person you will ever meet- took us around. By the end of the visit I felt like she was an old friend. I highly recommend this venue and these wonderful women to take care of your special day! They really think of everything to make it perfect, and they go above and beyond what is "expected" of a wedding venue.

My husband and I were married at the Interlaken in October of 2016. We had a FANTASTIC time, and continue hearing about how awesome it was from everyone. But an important detail to note is that we literally went from having a "small" event when we first started planning in... Read More July, to a full-on 100 person wedding with the works by September (because clearly, we didn't exactly know what we were doing). Every single step of the way, they were friendly and accommodating. We worked exclusively with Tiffany for everything, who was incredible. She was so responsive and calm throughout the entire process, and I really needed that, because we were doing this quickly and somewhat cluelessly. She could not have been a more perfect fit to help us!!! Also a shout out to Terry, who booked our event initially, and who was incredibly understanding, given that we really did not know what we wanted at first! We initially had a lakeside ceremony planned, but it was super rainy, so we needed to move to the atrium area (off of the tent, which I was bummed about at first). Can I just say that when I walked down there for the ceremony, I was FLOORED at how absolutely beautiful the ENTIRE PLACE looked!!! We did not go crazy with decorations at all, and it looked amazing, both the ceremony and reception. People are still telling me how beautiful they thought everything was. Seriously impressive! I look back at our photos and just cannot believe how beautiful they made the place look. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out, regardless of the rain. You are really in good hands with the Interlaken. They have back-up plans, accommodations, flexibility, and staffing that many other places just don't. The food was also incredible, fyi (although I barely ate!), and our after-party with twenty or so friends/family went until two in the bar. We loved that too. Everything was perfect, and this was all executed in three months. We totally recommend and cannot wait to come back and visit for our anniversary!!!!

We knew we were in good hands with Stephanie right from the start. We had some atypical requests that Stephanie and her team worked with us on and accommodated immediately. Once we arrived at Interlaken at the beginning of the weekend, we handed everything over to Stephanie and her team -- we didn't have to worry about a thing. It was a magical weekend at an incredible site, and we would highly recommend it to any couple.

Our guests are still raving about the venue itself, the food, the charming guest rooms, the friendly staff and the overall happy vibe that was felt by all at our wedding at Interlaken. Stephanie, our wedding coordinator, was fabulous! She was responsive throughout the planning process. She was extremely flexible, detail-oriented and helpful. She worked with us on every detail and always figured out a way to make things work. On the day of the wedding, she exceeded our expectations! She went out of her way to ensure that the day was seamless. She even averted a potential "crisis" when she realized that our LED candles on our centerpieces did not have batteries with them (our fault!). She went out and purchased the batteries, put them all in and saved the day, without ever alerting us to the issue! You really are in good hands with her. Even my mom and I, who both tend to be type A when it comes to planning, were told to just relax on the day of the wedding and hand everything over to her. We felt so at ease having Stephanie running the show! Overall, I cannot say enough great things about having our wedding at Interlaken. I really have no complaints whatsoever. The staff did their best to accommodate all of the early check in requests on Friday. The food all throughout the weekend was delicious. Our guests loved the bonfire the night before the wedding! It was so nice to say hello to everyone before actual wedding. I also have to rave about the penthouse suite! It is the most amazing suite of all the places we toured! You will be in heaven spending your wedding day getting ready there! We lucked out with the weather. It was beautiful all weekend long! It is a wonderful feeling knowing that my dream wedding actually became reality. Both my husband and I are so thankful for the incredible memories that were made on our wedding weekend at Interlaken. It is a place that will now also be held near and dear to our hearts. We definitely plan to return some day for an anniversary weekend!

When we came... Read More across Interlaken Inn we knew we hit the nail on the head! The venue has various types of rooms that all of your guests can stay in for the weekend and plenty of activities for your guests to enjoy through out the weekend! We were able to have a beautiful welcome dinner onsite so that when the guest arrived on Friday they didn't have to go anywhere else, following the dinner we had a BEAUTIFUL lakeside bonfire which the guests LOVED. On Saturday, everyone was able to enjoy all the amenities of Interlaken, by canoeing, swimming, tennis etc, which everyone really enjoyed! As for the wedding itself, it was all perfect! One of the things that is a little scary for a bride and groom who choose to have an outdoor wedding is what if the weather doesn't hold out? Stephanie and the staff at Interlaken have various rain plans which we ended up partially using, however you wouldn't have even known that it was the "rain plan" because it went so smoothly! It's been two weeks since our wedding and our guests are still emailing and texting that they had such an amazing time all weekend, and that they felt like they were on a mini vacation all weekend - which is EXACTLY what we wanted. As for the food at the venue, Brandon and the staff absolutely knocked it out of the park, they did our welcome dinner, lunch on Saturday, Reception, After Party Food and Goodbye Brunch and it was ALL phenomenal. I am still dreaming of our Southern Style Welcome Dinner and multiple people said the filet mignon at the reception was the best they have every had! Additionally, all of the meals are farm to table in a super unpretentious way - which we loved! They source everything locally and it really shines through with the quality of their food. Morgan's Restaurant at Interlaken is absolutely incredible as well so make sure to get lunch or dinner there when you visit the venue! As for Stephanie, our wedding coordinator at Interlaken Inn - she was absolute perfection in every way and had everything completely under control. Even if you are a relaxed bride, (which I thought I was going to be) weddings end up being a stressful but fun event and Stephanie put me completely at ease. She has a ton of experience with weddings so listen to her advice she knows what she is talking about! She has excellent recommendations for vendors as well which was very helpful! She was so easy to work with through out the entire process and is a true professional and just a really lovely person in general! I cannot say enough amazing things about Interlaken Inn, their delicious food, perfect venue, their beautiful grounds, and their amazing staff. Choose Interlaken Inn if you want to have the best wedding ever!


Simply Amazing from the beginning to end

What can I say, The Interlaken Inn was probably the best decision that we made while planning our wedding. To start, Stephanie, their on site wedding coordinator, puts her heart and soul into every wedding, and she was super helpful from the moment we booked the venue,... Read More until the moment we checked out post wedding. She is detail oriented, and always willing to answer one of the 1000 questions that came up during the wedding planning process, and because she does this every weekend, she knows exactly what works, and what doesn't over the course of the wedding weekend. She is a true asset to each couple, and the inn. In terms of the venue itself, it was a perfect day. We had our ceremony lakeside, overlooking the water, and it was just lovely. Cocktail hour was on the lawn outside the tented reception space, and the actual reception is held in the permanent tent structure, which is a perfect space for a celebration. The food was amazing, and the waitstaff and bartenders were on point all night. Another awesome feature was the honeymoon sweet, which was gorgeous and complete with patio and hot tub. It was the perfect place to return to after the reception had ended. In addition to the wedding day, we had a bonfire with beer/cider and S'mores the night before the wedding. Interlaken offers this lakeside, and it is the perfect way to spend the evening before the wedding, seeing out-of-town guests that may have not been at the rehearsal dinner. One thing to keep in mind, and was mildly annoying, is that interlaken will only hold rooms for your wedding until 6 months prior to your wedding date, and they are generally full on weekends during the spring/summer months. It meant that we needed to get our save-the-dates out early, so people could book rooms. Overall, the entire event was spectacular, and my wife and I now just want to start planning our 25 anniversary party at Interlaken too.
