“A Lovely and Quaint Authentic B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

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 hassle if you want to stay in a lovely, dutch home in a picturesque town.

Breakfast was the best part of staying here, with an assortment of warm breads and fresh cakes to die for, cheese, meats, fresh fruit, lattes, and a gorgeous view of the lake! All around wonderful!

Room Tip: The Blue Room is a bit tight for three!

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 the owners have given to the different spaces. Everything has it's place and this adds to the harmony, you can't help but relax here,
Breakfasts and dinner - superb!

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 excellent. I highly recommend arranging to have dinner at the B&B at least once. Really they should open a restaurant with their talent.
The rooms were clean, spacious, beautiful and comfortable. Plus the historical and architectural elements make it extremely special.
We will be referring friends and family to this lovely place.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are excellent but I recommend the Red or Black and White Rooms if you want a romant...

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 rental. (Highly recommend this also.) It feels a world away from the bustle of Amsterdam. HIGHLY recommend this place and can't imagine how anyone could be disappointed in either the inn or the village. Cannot wait to return!

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 into the kitchen area we felt at home. Pamela showed us our room - the taupe room, featuring post & beam decor characteristic of traditional Dutch architecture. The room was spotless and had all the extra's - robe's to use, new slippers to take home, shampoo, soap, hair dryer etc. The bathroom is very modern and not like any bathroom I have seen at a B&B. The scenery is reminisant of a quaint cottage town in Northern Ontario, Canada. The breakfast was amazing - fresh fruit, cheese, meat, warm buns and croissants. We were offered "eggs Pamela" on our second day, as well as all the items I mentioned above. They were amazing!
On our first night Brian & I sat in the conservatory enjoying a BOLs and Cointreau and had a wonderful conversation with Karel.
Karel & Pamela are wonderful people who truly love what they do.
Amsterdam is a short bus ride away and Pamela provides all details you require. I could continue to write pages on our experience however I suggest you book early and enjoy this gem for yourself. My dad has already booked for late August 2012.

Thank you Karel & Pamela for your hospitality!

I almost forgot - I hope this duck that comes for his breakfast every morning is doing well.

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 atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. We were picked up at the airport for a very moderate cost.

We did have dinner at the Inn one night (this had to be ordered in advance), and the food was delicious. Breakfast too was scrumptious!

The one drawback was perhaps the very steep, very narrow stairs up to the second floor where our rooms were situated. One of the party uses crutches, and she could manage the stairs, but it was not very easy. Personally I found them difficult even without crutches! We had mentioned the crutches upon reservation and was perhaps a bit surprised when we saw that there was no other way of getting to the room. There is a room on the first floor, but this was already booked.

We had the blue and the red room, both equally lovely!

It did take us a while to get the bills sorted on departure, something which could perhaps been a bit better organised, but all in all it was a lovely stay and I would very much like to go back sometime. This time maybe with my husband - it's an ideal spot for a relaxing and romantic weekend!
