Lovely rustic windmill set in beautiful countryside.

  • 5 of 5

Maarten is most welcoming and has thought of everything that you may need for your stay. It was really great to have the use of the bikes and our family cycled every day. It was lovely to sit outside and watch the various birds and animals and the family enjoyed their swims in the river. Staying in the windmill made my childhood dream come true - we truly had a memorable and fantastic few days and hope to return again.

Charmingly Idyllic

  • 5 of 5

A unique experience. Quiet, rural, peaceful, with easy access to Abcoude with its many enticements. Hosted by Maarten, a wonderfully friendly and inviting fellow. From here you can hike, bike, and even swim in the adjacent tranquil river. Even a chance to feed the lambs and goats in the nearby meadow. Would be a perfect “base camp” with easy train access to Amsterdam. Eager to return!!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the mill. Maarten is an outstanding host. He answered all of our questions promptly and made us feel very welcome. The property itself is great. We enjoyed the historic mill, the rural setting, the nearby town and easy rail access to Amsterdam. We will definitely try to stay here again if we return to the area.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

Everyone should spend some time living in a windmill! The owners have done a lovely job of transforming the windmill into a unique and comfortable living space. There is tons of space on the three levels which includes a master suite on the top. Beds and linens are top notch. The living and dining areas are spacious and well appointed. While the kitchen is small it is very well laid out and fully equipped for all needs. The location is much fun to hear the sheep, roosters and cows out the window. We had lovely morning walks down the road by the camel. The town of Abcoude is about five minutes by car and has great grocery stores, shops and restaurants. It is also about 20 minutes into Amsterdam by car. Spent three nights and could have easily spent a week!

Seriously perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a few days here on an anniversary trip after a week in Amsterdam; it made a wonderful change. If you're thinking about visiting, do it! The windmill is fascinating, Maarten is lovely and very helpful, it's only 1/2 hour from Amsterdam yet you're really in the country. We went on long bike rides, runs, we read, cooked and slept like a dream in the marvelous beds. I can't recommend this highly enough for a nice counterpoint to the urbanity of Amsterdam.

Most guests enjoy visiting Amsterdam during the day and relaxing around the mill after. Watch the river, the land and embrace the simple beauty of country life. To stay in an authentique and operational mill is simply unique.

Mondrian's painting of this mill is in the National Museum!
