Farmhouse Kaakberg, 2 Bedrooms , 2 Bath, 2 Sofa beds (Sleeps 4-6)
'Have you ever slept in a Kaakberg? It is a typical building in this area, in the past used for hay. Country & Lake is an ideal place for your vacation in The Netherlands! Our house is beautiful located in the countryside at the IJsselmeerdijk very near Edam, an old 'cheese' town. We rent this property with lots of windows with open views into the countryside. Read the guestbook to learn from previous guests!
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.

About Saskia Huisink-Janse
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.
Saskia Huisink-Janse purchased this Farmhouse in 1988
Why Saskia Huisink-Janse chose Warder
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.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
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.

Great location, beautiful home!
Very beautiful three story home with views of the country side! We stayed here for a little over a week with two families of three each, which the home fit perfectly. The kitchen area is well equipped and allowed us to cook easily to save some money on food. Beds were comfortable and heaters allowed for us to control temperature. Spa and sauna were great places to relax after a day of walking the city. Would highly recommend. Hosts were very accommodating and accessible during stay.
Thank you Mary and company for your very nice review! Onny and Saskia
Saskia and Onny were the absolute best hosts and new found friends.
PERFECT place to stay near Amsterdam. Only 20 min into the city but with all the other local attractions, you won't go into town very often.
Thank you both for a great week.
Thank you Chuck and Julie, it was such a pleasure to host you. See you in Palm Springs in January!
Onny and Saskia
Schönes Haus mit tollen Ausblick
Das Haus ist sehr schön und liebevoll eingerichtet.Die Ausstattung ist gut und es fehlt an nichts, wobei nicht mehr alles ganz neu ist. Das obere Schlafzimmer mit dem Blick auf die weiten Felder mit Kühen, Pferden und Schafen auf der einen Seiten und mit Blick auf das Meer zu anderen Seite ist echt Super! Die Terrasse mit Garten und Whirlpool laden zum relaxen ein! Der Wohlfühlfaktor ist sehr hoch, das kann auch die eine oder andere Spinne nicht mindern. In der Umgebung kann man schöne Fahrradausflüge machen und das nahe gelegene Edam ist auch sehr nett mit guten Möglichkeiten Essen zu gehen oder einzukaufen. Auch Ausflüge nach Amsterdam oder auf die andere Küstenseite sind aufgrund der geringen Entfernung lohnenswert. Saskia und Onny sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten sehr schöne, entspannende Tage und würden jederzeit wieder kommen!
Vielen Dank Fam. Bickl für die schöne review!
Wir haben noh eine Frage. haben Sie vielleicht ein Panasonic cameralader vergessen? Bitte schreiben Sie uns, dann kann ich es zurück schicken.
Wir, 3 Erwachsene (Ehepaar und Oma) und 3 kleinere Kinder, haben ein wundervolles verlängertes Wochenende am Markermeer verbracht. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigen könnte, es ist sauber und sehr stilvoll eingerichtet. Ankommen und wohlfühlen, den Blick über die Felder schweifen lassen und Tiere beobachten, ein gemütlicher Saunagang und die Entspannung setzt sofort ein. Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern ist überaus freundlich. Edam und Alkmaar sind tolle Ziele in der Nähe und einen Ausflug wert. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und allen ist der Abschied schwer gefallen. Vielen Dank.
Vielen Dank für Ihre Review! Wir wilkommen Sie gerne wieder, Saskia und Onny
The perfect getaway from the city
Enjoyed a lovely, quiet and snowy long weekend at the kaakberg with our twin babies. The house was perfectly comfortable and set up well for making meals, relaxing in the sauna & spa or just admiring the beautiful countryside views from every window.
Thank you for taking the time to write this nice review, Onny and Saskia
My stay last June at "Country and Lake The Kaakber
My stay at The Country&Lake The Kaakberg was unforgettable! The views from my top floor bedroom in the front were the Zuiderzee and in the rear the lush Dutch countryside of sheep and horses and cows! I loved the Finnish sauna . I loved Saskia and Onny's kind hospitality! A bike ride away you are in the cute old Dutch village of Edam and a short train ride away from Amsterdam. Highly recommend this super place!! Look forward to my next trip. This was aready our 2nd time here!
