vacation rental description

Have you ever slept in a Kaakberg? It is a typical building in this area, in the past used for hay. Country & Lake is an ideal place for your vacation in The Netherlands! Our house is beautiful located in the countryside at the IJsselmeerdijk very near Edam, an old 'cheese' town. We rent a large luxury apartment with lots of windows with open views into the countryside. Read the guestbook to learn from previous guests! 

The house has a lot of space with three floors (living/diningroom and kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom with bathtub) and a view over the lake. Oak floors, beautiful designed, fine linens and most important: location, location,location!

You will have the use of the relaxing space with a sauna, and fitness equipment (Bowflex Power Pro ). Outside on the terrace is a (Sundance) Spa. You can also use one of the other terraces upstairs too to eat and relax. There's a place to park your car, the area is very safe. There's a laundryroom with washingmachine, dryer and possibilities to iron. In the same space there's a computer for the guests to use to pick up or write emails. Or you can work WiFi in your room. You will have your own free entrance.

It's a very beautiful place for writing, reading a good book (books available too in different languages!) and there are lots of opportunities to explore the countryside by foot, bicycle or boat. Besides Edam & A'dam there are a lot of interesting places nearby. You can also make daytrips to the Northsea & the bulbfields (April). 

There is a little beach, over the dike where you can swim in the summer in the lake. The nearest public transportation is 3 miles (Edam), but we provide bikes for the guests.

traveler reviews for this amsterdam house rental

Exceeding expectations....

Review submitted: July 1, 2008   Date of arrival: May 16, 2008

We enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing two weeks in the Country and Lake apartment - and we don't say that lightly since we travel with two small children (twin boys of 2 years old).... The actualy apartment, amentities and surroundings surpassed any expectations we had based on the descriptions on the Internet. The apartment is beautiful, clean, tastfully decorated (including beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers), and the view (typical Dutch) is magnificent. Many of the days we were there, we just stayed "home", with the kids playing in the big garden (including sandbox), and us, adults, enjoying the quiet and the view. Or we hopped over the dyke to play on the beach. Or we rode our bikes along the dyke to the quaint little town Edam. One of the days we went to Amsterdam to visit the zoo (Artis) and this was only a 40-minutes drive.

Saskia and Onny were wonderful hosts and they helped us make the apartment child-friendly (they had two cribs for us available, put up a gate on top of the stairs, and even lent us some toys for the boys!).

We were/are so pleased with our stay at the Country and Lake that we are considering coming back there for next year's vacation!

Recommended for: families with young children, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Great location, clean and all the conveniences!

Review submitted: May 11, 2014   Date of arrival: April 8, 2014

For the past 12 years, we have travelled every year and have rented a house in some part of Europe. Country & Lake is by far the BEST rental we have stayed in. There is no doubt that we will be back next year.My husband and I spent the first week in April in the 3-level barn-house. The views are stunning. The view from the living room area (2nd floor) overlooks the wetlands (green-green fields), which we found to be incredibly peaceful and relaxing to watch. We loved to see the ducks, geese and other interesting birds flying around, feeding (and nesting, apparently) in the field. The farmer next door has horses, a pony and sheep, which hang-out in right in front of the huge picturesque windows. There were lambs this time of the year and it was really entertaining to watch them run around (they reminded us of puppies; following one another, tearing back-and-forth). The view from the master bedroom on the 3rd floor overlooked the Lake, which offered a whole different perspective and reminded us of how inventive the Dutch have been, managing the sea! The lower level offers a sauna and a really wonderful spa-type room, which I really enjoyed sitting in late afternoon, when the sun streamed in. In addition to the gorgeous views, we enjoyed watching the children bicycling to school every morning and the enthusiastic cyclists who used the country road, also visible from the 2nd floor living room area.
The house has ALL the conveniences and was spectacularly clean and comfortable. Onny and Saskia are warm hosts (and Fred, their cat), always ready to help.
The area is charming and there is a lot to explore; the local stores, supermarkets, bakeries and general feel is very rural. Oh, and the very narrow bridges can prove quite challenging by car (it helps to have mirrors that retract), although there were other routes to avoid the village bridges.
While the property is secluded (which we look for in a property), it was easy to be in the throng of community and navigate the small towns. It was very easy to get into Amsterdam by car (although I understand that transportation by bus is also very easy to manage). After our week at Country & Lake, we boarded a 10 day Viking River Cruise with stops in The Netherlands and Belgium. The cruise was truly wonderful, but my husband and I both agree: if we were to do it over, we would have preferred to spend our 2 and 1/2 week vacation staying-put, in Warden at THIS property. Thanks, Saskia and Onny!

Owners response: Dear Jenni and Neil,
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. It was a pleasure to have you both as our guests. We were amazed by the energy and enthousiasm you have as travellers, taking advantage of all the possibilties there are to explore and enjoy the places you visit.
We hope there will be much more beautiful trips ahead and you are more than welcome to come to Country & Lake again.
With warm greetings from Holland, Onny and Saskia
