There are also other spa services offered there, including Hawaiian Lomi Lomi, hand and foot, and hair and scalp treatments. They also offer facials.
Pilates and yoga classes are offered and can be taken as a group or as a private lesson. The cost includes all equipment, including a Pilates Reformer. A trained instructor teaches them.
In addition to the Pilates and yoga classes offered by the spa, there is also a health and fitness center onsite. It has exercise bikes, treadmills, free weights, stair climbers, and other fitness equipment.
There is a full-service restaurant available at Interlaken Inn - Morgan’s.
Morgan’s focuses strongly on fresh, local, mostly farm to table new American offerings for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu changes seasonally, and reservations are strongly recommended due to the restaurant’s popularity not only at the Inn but also in the surrounding community. Some of the more popular menu items include New England clam and corn chowder, the Morgan’s burger (made with ground short rib and brisket and served with tomato bacon jam, cheddar, and greens on a multigrain bun), and fish and chips.
Morgan’s also provides the complimentary continental breakfast offered daily.
The staff at Morgan’s operates a private dining club as well as private banquets and parties with notice. This includes Interlaken Guests as well as guests from the local area, so reservations in advance are required.
