Firstly, we booked through Mr&Mrs Smith hotels which refused to upload our review about this property because it had some negativities. So the reviews on Mr&Mrs Smith's website are, by our experience, biased heavily towards only showing the good. I challenge Mr&Mrs Smith to go public on this. As for the In on the Lake, it is in a quiet,... More

We are astonished by your review. Knowing that you were a news(paper) reporter I understand that you are aware of freedom of speech. But giving wrong and twisted information could and can cause it to backfire. Luckily Trip Advisor gives us the opportunity to reply to your criticisms. Firstly we are a Grade 1 Listed building with certain restrictions on... More

Thank you so much to Pamela and her husband for a wonderful stay I had with them! The Inn is very very close to Amsterdam and is very easy to get to and from the city! The room is great and the breakfast (that was different 2 nights I stayed) was absolutely delicious! I will stay again no doubt!

What a wonderful venue to recover from a transatlantic flight and be introduced to Amsterdam whilst staying in the beautiful countryside. Pamela and Karel are the consummate hosts and so helpful with every detail. We had camera problems and they researched where to go for us. They go above and beyond what is expected. Delicious breakfasts ( healthy too) overlooking... More

Awesome place. Nice friendly warm staff. Great food. Very relaxed. Stunning views. We wished we stayed here longer than the 3 days. But we'll worth every penny. Monica showed us where to go and eat shop sightsee. Gave us bus tram passes. Can't thank them enough for a wonderful stay. We will be back soon. Thank you.

The Inn on the Lake must be the most exquisite small guest house in Europe! Only a few minutes on buses that seem to run every three minutes into Central Station in Amsterdam, the small well kept village of Broek in Waterland (with its 53 listed buildings) makes an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle (and cost!) of Amsterdam....

Our week at The Inn was the best part of our six week holiday. When we arrived, Linda, our stand-in hostess, settled us in to our beautiful, spacious room and then offered us a glass of wine to enjoy at one of the many lovely spots in the garden. The village is so peaceful and picturesque and the views of... More

This is a private guesthouse (so it is more than a B and B) with the best ingredients you can imagine. Pamela takes care of the excellent breakfast with two friendly ladies to help her. Also her husband Karel is in charge and he takes care of the coffee machine. In the conservatory you van enjoy your breakfast with a... More

Within the first couple of minutes of arriving, I already knew I wanted to stay here again. What a lovely warm welcome from the half-English/half-Dutch owner Pamela and her Dutch friend Monique, who also looked after us superbly. The decor throughout this historical wooden house, a former vicarage, is immaculate with extraordinary attention to detail and quality, including our room... More

Arriving at 10.30 at night we were welcomed by Pamela and her warm hospitality and immediately knew we would enjoy our stay. We started the following day with a delightful breakfast served at our table overlooking the lake. The property has been meticulously restored with an eye to detail apparent throughout, as well as in the garden. Broek is the... More
