We stayed for 3 nights at bed & breakfast 'de thuiskamer' which means something like living room/place to come home in Dutch. And it was.
The place consists of 2 bedrooms upstairs and a large living/dining downstairs with kitchen and terrace. The owner has decorated and renovated the house immaculaty with beautiful upholstery, decorative items, books and magazines, plants etc.
The bedroom is located on the attic and has a modern bathroom and space for an extra bed.
The owner can help you with everything you need/would want to know in the neighbourhood as well as she has some really good restaurant advice.
She assisted in arranging a boat for us, walked with us carrying the picnic basket to the rental place, she arranged for bicycles. When they did not have a child seat she managed to find me a bike which had one (on loan from her neighbour) This is 6 star service.
She makes you feel at home and serves the best breakfast with local Frisian delicacies, fruit, cheese, coffee and tea on a table in the living room which is set lovely for the occasion.
You could rent out the entire B&B if you prefer some privacy, however no one shared the living room at night with us allthough the b&b was fully booked each night. In the morning we ran into the other guests whilst they were leaving the breakfats table and we were arriving. However there is a big plant in the middle of the table to ensure some privacy.
All pictures on the websit eof the B&B are really what it looks like.
This was such a good choice for our 3 days. Staying here only one night is just not enough, also because the area boosts lots of activities.
O yes, the B&B is in the heart of Grou, an old village, on walking distance of the water, watersports, restaurants etc.
Go there, go there, go there!
