All water; from the showers to the wash basin is river water... More

Although I was on a business trip, the setting is also ideal for a peaceful weekend get-away. Jaap and Nienke were extremely friendly and helpful with all requests. Really enjoyed the stay, close to nature but with WiFi to remain in business contact. Note no cell phone reception.
