Staying in this lovely house it was a privilege. Brigitte and her Husband are such wonderful person making us feel like home!
The b&b is just wonderful, the outdoor part is really lovely, and the interior is even better, so warm and cozy!
Not to mention the breakfast, a pure pleasure that fills you for the day.
I would advise anyone to stay in this beautiful relaxed place.
Brigette's outstanding B&B was lovely place stay for a few nights at the end of our trip to the Netherlands. She hosts only one guest at a time and the rooms are in a separate wing of her house with an outside entrance so it is very private.
The rooms were spotlessly clean and newly decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was almost totally silent at night.
Brigette made us a fabulous breakfast every morning with eggs, breads, cheeses, meats, and more. One night she also cooked us an exceptionally good three course dinner as well, featuring many ingredients from her garden.
She arranged a bicycle rental for us and had them delivered to the house so they were waiting when we arrived. The riding in the area is sublimely good with lovely countryside all around and national parks nearby. Many of the sights of Drenthe are within easy driving distance.
It's a bit far to walk to town, perhaps, but no problem on bicycles and Diever is an attractive small town with several good restaurants and stores.
We recommend Brigitte and ROOM B&B most highly!!!
The little house was very cozy and homey, very clean and with a touch of luxurious comfort that you just don't expect from a B&B (e.g. Nespresso machine and wood fireplace).
The breakfast was nice, and we loved Brigitte's homemade pizza.
We had a fantastic time there and would recommend it to anyone.
Fantastic space in a very relaxing area of the Netherlands. Well represented by the pictures. Terrific breakfast every morning. We took Brigitte up on the optional dinner for the evening we arrived. Not only was the meal very good, but it saved us from choosing a place after our long drive.
The apartment is located very close to a number of parks and bike paths, which made bicycle outings very easy (we brought ours, but you can rent in the nearby town).
Brigitte was a terrific hostess--very helpful and considerate, with good recommendations for dinner in the nearby area. We had a very relaxing time and would absolutely stay again if our travels bring us back to the Netherlands.
