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).
“Tucked away at the end of an unassuming street and flanked by old, tall stone walls is a secluded overgrown garden hiding the charming small bed-stay at the heart of it. You'll be forgiven to think you were in the middle of a forest. The grounds are carefully and lovingly tended to by Loekie, who is happy to take you around the estate . The house itself is rustic yet designed, bathed in natural warmth from the skylight. Imagine a lazy afternoon of tea or coffee in your private canopy in the garden followed by fine supper a stroll away along the beautiful, winding Vecht. Maarssen has become a favorite destination of mine, and a stay with the delightful and generous Loekie and Gary is a definite must.”

“We had some super relaxing days at Nel's place. It's a little garden Eden in the hustle of everyday's life. We escaped the stress by just sitting in the beautiful garden, looking on the water front and listening to the silence. The cute boat can be used to explore the canals or for the Trip to the Loosdrecht seas. For a trip to Amsterdam we parked free in Breukelen and went by train in 30 min to Amsterdam Centraal. Nel welcomed us warmly and even checked us out personally. The communication was always easy and fast. It was a perfect short vacation, we recommend Nel as host and her nice place 100%!”

“With this being our first holiday together without the children it took some time to find what we wanted from our holiday. Peter met us and walked us to our accommodation and we were not disappointed. The chalet exceeded our expectations and was the perfect size for two. I instantly felt comfortable here. The cleanliness and homely touches certainly added to the comfort. Thought has definitely gone in to making this a home from home for travellers and is much appreciated. Towels, bedding and extra blankets are all available. Peter and Leonic are both friendly and helpful and Peter is quick to respond to any questions and will suggest places to visit if needed. They live in a houseboat next door but are inobtrusive but are there if you need anything. We made use of the bicycle's for a small daily fee and cycled to Utrecht, an absolutely beautiful cycle. The view from the bedroom is so beautiful any time of day. Sitting in the patio area is so relaxing. The peace and tranquility is a holiday in itself without exploring any further! Five nights was not enough for us and unfortunately ran out of time to experience a day on Peter's boat. Will book a day on our next visit, hopefully next september.”
