We had a great experience at Op de Horsten. We arrived in rain/cold/wind, so were unable to take advantage of the biking, but had a wonderful time anyway. The hosts were very welcoming and happy to answer any questions (we especially liked the tour of the solar-electricity installation on the barn roof - thank you!), the rooms clean and nicely furnished, the breakfasts were very nice. In all, we cannot identify a single weakness of this B&B. The weather was terrible while we were there, but it was an uncommon bad spell across N. Europe at the time and obviously not their fault. We took the bus to/from Amsterdam Centraal/Op de Horste, which was very convenient, quick and inexpensive. Having no car was not a problem, even without the bikes (rain), as the bus stop is very near the B&B and it is easy to bus to nearby Edam/Vollendam/etc. It was also an easy walk to Monnikendam...and all of the nearby towns are worthwhile visiting. So, this is not a very 'balanced' review, because it is a really nice place to stay. Thank you to our hosts!
