About the Property
Farmhouse Kaakberg, 2 Bedrooms , 2 Bath, 2 Sofa beds (Sleeps 4-6)
The house has a lot of space with three floors (living/diningroom and kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom with bathtub) and a view over the lake. Oak floors, beautiful designed, fine linens and most important: location, location,location!
You will have the use of the relaxing space with a sauna, and fitness equipment (Bowflex Power Pro ). Outside on the terrace is a (Sundance) Spa. You can also use one of the other terraces upstairs too to eat and relax. There's a place to park your car, the area is very safe. There's a laundryroom with washingmachine, dryer and possibilities to iron. In the same space there's a computer for the guests to use to pick up or write emails. Or you can work WiFi in your room. You will have your own free entrance.
It's a very beautiful place for writing, reading a good book (books available too in different languages!) and there are lots of opportunities to explore the countryside by foot, bicycle or boat. Besides Edam & A'dam there are a lot of interesting places nearby. You can also make daytrips to the Northsea & the bulbfields (April).
There is a little beach, over the dike where you can swim in the summer in the lake. The nearest public transportation is 3 miles (Edam), but we provide bikes for the guests.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
This bear couldn’t believe what a nice find Country and Lake was! Located just outside the charming village of Edam, Country and Lake sits across the street from the beach and is surrounded by open farms. The friendly hosts write and direct plays in nearby Edam and are becoming well known around the world. They have been to Sundance by invitation of Robert Redford himself and have taken their work to Broadway and many other major cities around the US, Caribbean, and Europe. You will want to schedule plenty of time to get to know them better.
Both apartments are very nice. This bear and his friends loved them both, and felt right at home in the open surroundings. All possible amenities are offered, and then some, such as the use of bikes – the preferred mode of transportation for many Hollanders.
Nearby Edam is a real jewel. It's that little quaint European village you always dreamed of but maybe never found. Edam celebrates 650 years 'City Rights' in 2007. There will be festivities all over then. Today it appears to have lost none of its original charm. Well known for the cheese it exports, Edam is a place to get lost in for several relaxing days. Parking is easy in Edam, or use the bikes and be there just about as quickly.
You can catch a nice bus at Edam and find yourself in Amsterdam in less than half an hour. It’s so easy, and you can transfer to the trams and quickly make your way anywhere in Amsterdam, such as the Van Gogh Museum. If you fly into Amsterdam and rent a car, you’ll find the drive to Country and Lake short and easy.
Country and Lake is a great place to stay in Holland. You’ll feel welcome and right at home, can relax in the quiet surroundings, and yet spend all the time in Amsterdam or touring the surrounding countryside you want.

Year Purchased: 1988
About the owner: Mostly you will be in contact with me (Saskia), since my husband doesn't like computers at all. I live with my husband Onny in this house already more than 23 years. My husband is director and I am the playwright. The vacation rental is something we do beside this. We love to be in contact with people from all over the world and help them to explore the Netherlands. We love to travel ourselves too, as this picture shows, taken in 2009 in Sedona.
Why the Owner Chose Warder, Netherlands:
We rent a part of our house since 1998, because our daughter flew out to live on her own and our theatre got a beautiful new house in Edam, so we could move the office and atelier. Our private house was suddenly large for the two of us, so we decided to do something more with it to be able to maintain this beautiful place where we live and to share it with other people.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Our house is situated in a beautiful, still quiet area in the Netherlands. Near Amsterdam and next to the lake. If you like to be in the countryside, but you don't want to miss Amsterdam with its interesting musea, canals and architecture, come and stay here. If you want to find out that the Netherlands is a beautiful country and has a lot more interesting things to offer than marihuana and the red light district, please come to our place and we can tell you all about it.
