Trip Report Crushed Mice for the New King: two unusual weeks in The Netherlands

Jump to last reply

Yes, weird topic, I know. We thought so too, but that's what we were told when we were all guests at dinner in The Hague. More to come.

Most of the trip time was in Amsterdam, where we had super museum- and flower-filled days, staying in an unusually fabulous place.

I've been trying to find time to write this trip report since we returned on the 18th of May, so I thought if I write a preamble, I will be too embarrassed to stop!

By some stroke of internet luck, after searching for months for a rental house with four bedrooms, each with bath, I gave up, since such a creature is very very very difficult in Amsterdam. (We are a fun-loving group of 4 couples, who were on our third trip to Europe in search of beautiful gardens, and whatever culture and art were available.
A casual and flexible group to be sure, but NOT about bedrooms and bathrooms,)
NOTA BENE: that was the first of many tangents, as I have learned I am hopelessly tangental)

So, to finish the sentence beginning with "By some stroke of internet luck:" I found on the web, an Inn which claimed to be just 15 minutes from Amsterdam's Centraal station, in a small restored country village, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms!

Too good to be true?? Well, it would seem so, but it WAS true: I hesitate to tell you, but it is the Inn on The Lake, in Broek in Waterland. www.innonthelake.nl/‎

We investigated and took a chance, we hired the entire inn for a week, and it turned out to be very special indeed.
