We spent 2 nights at the Inn on the Lake in Broek in Waterland - just a 20 minute bus ride from the Central Station in Amsterdam after 3 fun, hectic days in the city. Our room (Taupe, also called Hunter) was lovely and very comfortable and clean, our hosts (the daughter of the owners - who were on vacation... More

We are regular visitors to Amsterdam but this was the first time we had stayed outside the city. We had such a wonderful break at Inn on the Lake we'll probably never stay in the city again! Our hosts, Pamela and Karel and their family were absolutely wonderful - very considerate and caring. All their blood, sweat and tears in... More

I visited the Inn on the Lake for a long weekend in May. Situated in a lovely sleepy village, Broek in Waterland, built on a series of little canals with lots of lovely wooden houses. The Inn is actually the old vicarage opposite the church and has been lovingly restored to a high standard. You can even see a picture... More

This B&B just outside Amsterdam is fabulous if you want to escape the noise of the city and capture a bit of the real culture of Holland. The room was a little cozy for 3, but beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. It's an easy ride into Amsterdam, just a bit tricky to get back at night - but worth the... More

We have just returned from a three day stay at the guesthouse (taupe room). We were charmed by both the owners and the ambience of this beautiful place. The location is very romantic and our two year old son was very well welcomed, and loved it there too. What I found particularly lovely was all the attention to design detail... More

We loved staying at The Inn on the Lake. It was a refuge for the weary traveler. Clean, quiet and friendly. Felt right at home. All the people were helpful, cheerful & friendly. A pleasant breakfast each morning and a dinner that seemed like a gourmet chef made it. Don't hesitate to book a room :-)

Our stay at the Inn on the Lake was exceptional. Every detail was top quality. It was easy to feel relaxed and at home. The location of the Inn was wonderful. The local village around the lake was peaceful and Amsterdam was an easy short bus ride away. The host and staff were warm, enthusiastic and helpful. The breakfast was... More

Beautiful inn down to the last detail. Lake setting. Picture perfect village. It was almost unreal because it was so beautiful. Every house was more adorable than the next. Convenient to Amsterdam. Within walking distance of two charming little restaurants. Bike rental place right in the village. (Highly recommend biking to Rotterdam.) Cute little village market. Walking distance to boat...

My husband and I arrived in Amsterdam on October 19 and were picked up at the airport by Karel (we arranged this ahead of time). We had a short drive to the most picturesque village - we pulled up to Inn on the Lake and were greeted by a smiling Pamela- who is so helpful. As soon as we entered... More

Together with some friends I stayed in this Inn for three nights in April 2011. We wanted a quiet spot just outside Amsterdam, and that was just what we got. The village itself is charming, and the transportation into the center of Amsterdam quite convenient by bus. The Inn itself is beautiful! The rooms are so nicely decorated and the... More
