This b&b is in a 400 year old house. That in itself is cool, but everything has been totally renovated in a warm and casual way. We felt at home here from the moment we drove into the beautiful village of Grouw. . We stayed here 3 nights and I think we enjoyed this part of our trip more than the 7 days in Amsterdam. Fraukje, the innkeeper, was so nice and so helpful that we felt like family (especially when her cute 3yr old son came along). She tailored breakfast times to our schedule and was very helpful giving good directions and sightseeing tips. The village itself is on the water with several marinas, a church from the 13th century (!), and a village square (1 block from inn) with restaurants where everyone sits outdoors in the summer. If you're looking to unwind and discover the beautiful Frisian countryside we highly recommend De Thuiskamer. Great for couples. Families would be fine if kids are old enough to sleep in their own room. I understand that there are a few festivals during the summer when it gets loud into the night but it was pretty peaceful and quiet when we were there. being from the US and on our first visit to the NL, we couldn't have asked for a better introduction to the country.
