About Ingrid Winterink
This is me, Ingrid. Together with my husband, Henk, we purchased the 'Johan House' in 2008 when our backyard neighbor moved out making it available. This opportunity happens only once in a lifetime. We meticulously renovated it to meet all of our dreams and are thrilled to open it for business. Next to running the vacation home, we also have a catering business, so if you would like to have a meal prepared, ask away!

Perfect blend of modern and historic!
The Johan House is a charming home from around 1750, located in the heart of the equally charming city of Ameersfort. The home is spacious, clean and comfortable, and full of modern amenities while maintaining it's historic roots. The neighborhood is also a great blend of old and new, with quaint homes, a canal, and cobblestone alleyways coupled with great shops and restaurants. The owner, Ingrid, was a wonderful host, always prompt with her responses, very kind, and went above and beyond to ensure we had a perfect stay. Thank you, Ingrid, for your hospitality!

Beautiful, comfortable home with everything you need
We had a wonderful time at Johan House! It is an amazing, historical home, and Ingrid takes such great care in making sure the house has everything you could need. The beds are super comfortable. It is located on a quiet street, but right in the center of town. Amersfoort is beautiful, the people are so kind, we had a great trip!
A wonderful property in a beautiful location!
The owners are very responsive and helpful and the house is lovely - comfortable beds, full kitchen facilities and great bathroom. As the property is just off the main shopping street in Amersfoort it is very convenient to get to all the sights and shops in this historic medieval centre of town. There is also a designated parking space in an underground car park.
I visited with my wife and three girls for four days. I would absolutely want to return again and spend a week or more. The listing did not disappoint. The house itself reflected the very lovely mature charm of the city of Amersfoort but offered the modern comforts necessary. It's location was very convenient to walking around and exploring this small ancient city. Our kids loved it. It was clean, quiet, and very comfortable and Ingrid and Henk were fantastic hosts. They went above and beyond when we had some extra needs and made us feel very taken care of.
We hope to see them in NYC someday !
