Once in a life time experience
We really don't have any words that can describe our experience staying in the windmill and right outside of Abcoude. As a family of five (kids 7y, 11y, 15y) there was no better place we could have stayed. We will forever remember this stay. The windmill is a three story fairy-tail. The ground level you will find a full kitchen, living room and toilet. The mid-level you will find a bathroom , two bedrooms. The third floor is the master suit, which takes up the full floor. Coming from San Diego, Ca, the who experience felt like we went back in time. The setting of the windmill is incredible. The pictures just don't do it justice. Just like every review before us, Maarten is an incredible host and helped us get situated. He explained the windmill and the history, provided us a list of things to do - cheese farm, castle tour, eats in Abcoude, and where to park when traveling into Amsterdam (Amsterdam is about a :30-min trip if you drive, park and take the rail in) . He made everything so easy. We were so grateful and only wish we had more time. Thank you Marteen for everything...
Thank you so much!
A joy to have you in the Mill!
As amazing as you woulld imagine it.
Stunning, amazing. Maartin the owner was so friendly and told us so much about the windmill. Felt like a privilege to stay in such an amazing place
I honestly don’t think words have been invented yet to perfectly describe the beautiful experience of staying in such an unusual and outstanding property.
It begins with Maarten..how kind and accomodating he is. He showed us how the windmill works. Yikes!! What a workout! The windmill is even better in person..nobody cared about the steep stair cases. All of the bedrooms were so lovely we took turns each night staying in each. the living space is cozy. The kitchen...albeit small ...is wonderfully equipped...and the neighbors!!!!!!! The goats, the cows, the donkey...We made friends with the goat keeper, Robert. Very excited about that as he is very serious about the rare breed he tends.
The windmill is very easy to reach driving from Schipol. Amsterdam Centrum is a quick 20 minute train ride away or 45 minutes by bicycle. Yet you are embedded in the most spectacular countryside.
The town Abcoude is dripping with Dutch charm...wonderful shops and restaurants.
I simply cannot recommend this property more highly. I cannot say it is a once in a lifetime experience as I intend to return sooner rather than later.
Thank you so much, Maarten. Xxoo
WoW Geraldine, so happy with a great a fine-worded review!
What dreams are made of...
When I saw that we could stay in an authentic and historic windmill I booked our entire trip around this experience. It did not disappoint!! Such a beautiful place and the setting is absolutely gorgeous. Wish we had more time to explore.
Once in a lifetime !!
How many people get to stay in a real windmill ! This place was amazing. There were 6 of us and our adult children enjoyed this setting beyond our imagination. There were goats and sheep in a picturesque setting that could be a painting. Maarten was very responsive and it was very nice to relax here after a hard day of touring. Abcoude is beautiful little town as well.
Thank you John!
It was as beautiful & picturesque as represented!
Loved our time here! Maarten was so accommodating answering questions when we had travel issues. Our big mistake was not allowing enough time here to soak up the experience even more. This was our own fault for our packed itinerary.
Thank you Brenda!
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!
