The Windmill Cottage

This is a rare opportunity to stay in a traditional Miller's House on the same property as an authentic 1632 Dutch windmill. This handbuilt cottage is one of a kind and brimming with love and care.

It offers privacy and nature and is surrounded by canals and, yet only 2.5km from the beautiful town of Alkmaar. It is a 40 minute direct train ride to Amsterdam and only 14 km from the famous dunes and North Sea.


As the Miller of this windmill, I along with my wife Kelly, enjoy helping our guests have the best stay possible. A private tour of the historic Mill is included whenever possible!


The cozy space is the perfect home base to recharge or return to after a day of exploring. It is heated by a traditional AGA stove, which is also a special way of cooking. There's a wood-burning stove, and guests especially love the loft's unique, romantic, hanging queen bed.

Outside you can enjoy the surrounding land and make use (upon availability) of our bikes and 2 canoes.  


If you are with more guests, check out our Houseboat "The Liefke" which is on the same property. Together they offer the perfect place to spend quality time with family and friends.
