De Boomgaard (The Orchard) is in the walled garden of an 18th-century house on the legendary Vecht River, where Dutch country life was born. The b&b is a complete cottage of great charm and comfort. Guests have their own entrance, with free parking a few steps from the door. They have their own entirely private bathroom and kitchen. Located centrally, close to Utrecht, convenient by car or train to Amsterdam (45 min.), Rotterdam, The Hague, Delft, Leiden (1 hr).
“I was looking for a charming place to rest for a couple of days and that is exactly what I found with Loekie and Gary. The house is incredibly cosy, the garden is beautiful, the surroundings are lovely and Loekie and Gary are outstanding hosts. I’d love to go back.”
Our romantic windmill (1874) is just a few miles from Amsterdam in wide green fields and along a meandering river Gein. Easy access to the city. by car, train or by bike. You have the entire windmill to yourself. Three floors, with 3 bedrooms with double beds: it easily sleeps 6, a kitchen, living, 2 toilets and a bathroom with bath. Bikes available as well as kayak. Just leave some extra money if you did use them. No need to reserve ahead. Great swimming water and small landing just in front.
“This is a really unique place and so atmospheric. We stayed as a family with our daughters aged 5 and 3, and we loved everything about it. The windmill itself is stunning and inside is really quirky but also really comfortable. We made use of the bikes (complete with childseats) and kayak to experience the area. The town of Abcoude was lovely and only a short bike ride away, nice cafes and restaurants. But otherwise you are surrounded by beautiful countryside. The girls also particularly loved the goats and sheep in the field next door and Robert who looks after them was really kind and patient introducing them to the animals. There was a little sheep called Karol who I think will be long remembered! Maartens communications were great. Can't recommend the experience highly enough.”
Typical terraced farmhouse with beautiful view on the country site!
“The house was exactly as advertised- comfortable, beautiful, in a gorgeous location, with everything we needed. My children loved being so close to the animals next door. Communication, including coming and going, was easy and flexible. Highly recommended!”
