Houseboat summary

The B&B in Vreeland is a modern, stylish houseboat apartment on the river 'de Vecht', only fifteen minutes from Amsterdam. Situated right in the middle of one of the most beautiful rural areas of the Netherlands, this houseboat has an amazing view over a small nature reserve. Away from buzzing Amsterdam or Utrecht, this houseboat allows you experience something truly unique; both in experience and in service. 

Even though you're only a short drive away from the city of Amsterdam, you feel like you're right in the middle of nature (which you are!). Take a refreshing dive in the river, or walk up to one of the beautiful mills that the Netherlands is famous for. Enough of nature? No problem, both Utrecht and Amsterdam are just a whim away.

Whether you enjoy your breakfast on the terrace overlooking the water, or if you watch the stars on the roof terrace with a bottle of wine: this B&B gives you an authentic Dutch experience, with a hint of luxury and personal service. 

Houseboat description

Our cozy houseboat can sleep up to six people. There is one large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom (i.e. bath, walk-in shower, toilet, and double sink). There are two other bedrooms. One also has a double bed, while the other has a single bed, and a children's bed. It is possible to set up an additional baby bed in one of the rooms as well! 

The roof terrace is huge; about 100 square meters. From your room you can jump right into the water; your own natural personal pool. If you like, you can also rent our own boat to make an adventurous or romantic trip on the river Vecht. From your comfortable living room you can even fish in the summer, and ice skate in the winter. 

The kitchen is fully equipped, and the Wifi is free. If you want to enjoy our delicious breakfast, please let us know! For a small fee we will prepare for you the best local breakfast you've ever had.

Houseboat owner


Ik ben een socioloog die vele jaren werkzaam geweesst is in het onderwijs. Na mijn pensionering ban ik verhuisd van een woning in een middelgrote stad naar een woning, midden in de natuur, aan Nederlands mooiste rivier, De Vecht.Naar mijn stellige overtuiging woon ik samen met mijn vrouw op een van de meest schilderachtige plekjes, die Nederland kent. In Vreeland, op het platteland en toch ( met de auto ) heel dicht in de buurt van Amsterdam en Utrecht.
Graag wil ik ook anderen laten genieten en laten ervaren wat wonen en vakantievieren in de natuur betekent.

    Great house boat with Amsterdam just 20 minutes away

    We had a great stay at Cors' boat house. For a family vacation with young children knowing how to swim, it is a great option during warm weather season, as part of the day is spent enjoying the view of the boathouse and for children to play in the water and the rest of the day is spent in Amsterdam as only 20 - 25 minutes away by car. Cor is a great host and the interior of the boat house is really nice. Definitelly a place to recommand.

    Fantastic bank holiday at a houseboat

    We all had a fantastic bank holiday on Cor & Lias houseboat. The location is amazing - the wide open kitchen invites everyone to have a good time. The hole watervilla is styled and detailed with a lot love and a great feeling for design. Cor and Lia were great hosts, they made us feel very welcome and comfortable. They had a lot of insider tips and helped us with everything we needed. On our way to Amsterdam we took the "Park and Ride" at Bjilmer, with Cor's assistance, and recommend it. We´ll be back for a longer stay as soon as possible Thanks for the great time! sebbo+catrin+julian+geraldine+daniel

    Lovely houseboat near Utrecht

    Lovely house boat. There is no door for bathtub, shower, and toilet at the downstair though. It has nice view in the morning and lovely place to bike.

    Lekker dicht bij Amsterdam

    Meteen thuis op deze mooie boot en bij deze supervriendelijke en flexibele gastheer. De ligging was werkelijk een verrassing met de vogelbroedplaats als achtertuin. Als activiteit raden we een fietstocht langs de Vecht (in de sporen van de Waterlinie) aan! En Amsterdam natuurlijk - winkelen, eten, Tropenmuseum........

    Lovely few days

    what a beautiful location for a holiday.  We loved the boat with incredible views and so close to both Utrecht and Amsterdam.  The kids loved the pedalo to take out on the water.  Cor was so friendly and the kitchen was brilliantly equipped 

    thank you Cor!
