Adirondack Premier Properties is excited to announce that the Interlaken Inn & Restaurant plans to re-open the first or second week of December 2022 under new ownership. A favorite establishment of the Lake Placid community for many years, the Interlaken’s local fan club includes many agents from our office. We were thrilled to list and help facilitate successful sale of this property to enthusiastic new owners. With a new era beginning at Interlaken Inn Lake Placid, we wanted to take this opportunity to introduce Interlaken’s new owners and share essentials about the re-opening, including how to book rooms and what to expect in the months ahead.
We are honored to introduce the new owners of this beloved Lake Placid inn & restaurant and to congratulate them on their new adventure. Justin (JD) Daw and Casey LaPoint bring much talent and vision to their new venture at Interlaken. Hailing from Alabama, Justin is a classically trained chef. After working and developing his talents in his home state, he moved to New Orleans to continue building his cooking repertoire in the culturally rich city. For 5 years, he worked as the Chef de Cuisine at Bouligny Taven in New Orleans. During this time, he met Casey LaPoint and seeds were planted to grow the partnership that would eventually come to Interlaken Inn Lake Placid. Casey has deep ties to the Adirondack region, growing up in Queensbury and later attending Paul Smith’s College. She has lived and worked extensively throughout the Adirondack region, developing her many talents and deep knowledge of the Adirondack hospitality industry.
When chatting with Casey about plans for moving forward with Interlaken Inn Lake Placid, she informed us that no major renovations are planned for the inn at this time. They do plan on making minor changes in the décor to enhance the existing uniqueness and coziness of this special property. Regarding management of the inn & restaurant, they plan on keeping it as a true family-run establishment where they will be very hands-on in running day-to-day operations. Extended family will also pitch in with Casey’s little brother and his girlfriend coming on as permanent fixtures to help with the many tasks required to provide guests with a unique and enjoyable Adirondack experience. Casey’s mother will also join the team, rounding out a committed and hard working staff dedicated to providing a positive guest experience and attending to the facility’s and guests needs.
While the rooms are not quite ready to book yet, Justin (JD), Casey and their team are pushing forward as fast as they can and working diligently to get the Interlaken Inn & Restaurant website updated and ready to take bookings. As soon as the Inn’s website is up and running, guests will be able to conveniently book one of the Interlaken Inn Lake Placid’s lovely Adirondack rooms at Interlakenlakeplacid.com
The Interlaken’s new restaurant menu will remain a secret, however, until they are ready to open. We are anxiously awaiting the menu reveal and looking forward to trying whatever culinary delights Justin prepares. Being back inside the Interlaken, seeing old and new faces, and experiencing the enhanced atmosphere will be a true treat. We would like to say thank you to Justin and Casey for working with Adirondack Premier Properties and wish them the very best as they start a new chapter at Interlaken Inn Lake Placid!
