About our home

In 2008 our house was completely rebuilt according to the original 1930s Scandinavian wooden house design. We've recently added an addition upstairs which gives a royal and open feel throughout the house. Unique Farrow and Ball colors create a warm atmosphere. The house is cool in the summer and warm in the winter thanks to its built-in ventilation system in the windows, heated floors, wood stove, and wooden structure. The kitchen is every chef's dream. Enjoy a swim in the Vecht River which is directly in front of the house. Read a book in the hammock, or take an outdoor shower in the private backyard. Located in the historical village of Loenen aan de Vecht, Amsterdam is just 20 min by car. There's a bus in the village that takes you there. Everything you need is a 7 min walk - the baker, grocery store, wine shop. Life doesn't get better than this. There's a windmill 20 meters away on the corner! If you're into long walks or jogs, there are two 5-6 km options immediately outside the door.


More about us

  1. We're a Dutch-American couple with 3 children (ages 9,7,4)

  2. We enjoy long walks in nature, good food with family and friends, music, and architecture.

  3. We're respectful of other peoples' homes and have experience renting out properties. We hope someone from Nantucket or Rehoboth can appreciate the beautiful village and home we live in.
