I Just arrived home to the states and its 3 oclock in the morning and i cant sleep thinking about the Mill. What a wonderful stay we had. The Mill is amazing . It has lovingly been preserved and made into a unique rustic comfortable home. When you drive up you are overwhelmed by the structure itself. The inside is wonderfully furnished with a mix of new, rustic and antique furnishings. Maarten was there to show us the workings and a quick tour
He goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect for your stay and is available for any questions you have
If you are an animal lover, as I am, the cows ,sheep, goats and ducks are there to greet you in the morning ,peacefully grazing in the pastures. It looks like a scene out of a storybook
My daughter and son in law joined us for part of the trip and they cant stop talking about it and showing pics to everyone
We were busy everyday either going into Amsterdam or discovering other villages to visit
But to return home each day to the Mill was so wonderful.
I am close to 70 years old and for no reason I know I was fascinated by Holland( as we called it then) since I was a child. Windmills, Delft,tulips were things i loved since then and have always filled my home.
I guess it was a dream fullfilled to actually go to the Netherlands and stay ina windmill!!
Thank you Anita, it was a joy to have you stay in The Mill, and i am so happy you “got The message we are trying to send out!
Perfect family vacation with easy access to many sights
Our family of five, 3 adults, a teen and a 12 year old loved our stay in the Windmill. We stayed a week, went into Amsterdam by train 3 days and had a rental car to visit some of the surrounding towns. Its a 25 minute walk to the town of Abcoude or a quick bike ride. Maarten thanks for your hospitality and quick response to any question I had and for running the mill towards the end of our stay. The Netherlands has many amazing sights, but the favorite of my daughters was riding the bikes loaned to us by Maarten around the river and canals right by the mill. On the spur of the moment we drove one day to Hoge Veluwe National Park - about an hour away and rode the bikes provided in the park while another family member went to the Kroller-Muller Museum - we highly recommend this day trip. We commented frequently how happy we were to have rented a place outside of Amsterdam. We hope to visit again - its a special place.
Thank you Mary!
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!
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.
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 lovely.....so 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!
Lovely rustic windmill set in beautiful countryside.
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.
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.
