Stay in a Traditional, Unique, Dutch Miller's House

Spend your holiday in my cozy, romantic, hand built cabin: steps away from a private 1632 working windmill and perfectly located to explore all this beautiful region has to offer.

Enjoy staying below sea level, next to the canal, surrounded by nature and sleeping in the unique hanging bed. It's guaranteed that you will never forget your stay in this one of kind charming cottage.


 Enjoy a Personalized Canal/Windmill Tour

As a local and a Miller, my hope is to offer an authentic Dutch experience that is more personal than is usually available to visitors. I look forward to being your guide on a two hour, small group tour through the canals of Alkmaar to my home: a historic 1632 running windmill.  We will boat through town, where you will see the sights from the most beautiful vantage point available. Once we arrive at the mill, we will enjoy local refreshments, a personalized tour of the inner workings of the mill, and spend some time in the 3rd floor museum-full of treasures from this region's rich history.

We'll then boat back to town, where you'll be dropped off to explore charming Alkmaar, once again.

~About Me~


Han Kuijper, Miller

Born and raised in North Holland, I am passionate about sharing the beauty of this area with others. I became a miller in 1998 and restored this unique 1632 windmill bit by bit. I live in-and operate-this mill and love to share with others the inner workings

of this marvel of engineering. 

In addition, I get great joy out of sharing the canals and beauty of Alkmaar. 
I look forward to getting to know you and giving you personalized tips to get the most out of your visit to this area.

I welcome you to North Holland and my mill.

It will be my pleasure to meet you

and introduce you to

this beautiful part of our world.
