Inn on the Lake

Inn on the Lake

****

Inn on the Lake is an all-season sensation: in winter, the 17th-century vicar’s home and neighbouring lake glitter with ice; in summer, the gardens are lush and luxuriant – the perfect retreat from Amsterdam, 10 minutes away.

Highlights:

  • 10 minutes’ drive from Amsterdam

  • The beautiful lakeside location

  • Excellent cooking from the owner, Pamela

In the know

Also need to know:

Pets can come too, for €20. Smokers can light up in the conservatory, as long as food isn’t being served. On 2 June 2012, the local village association is holding a musical performance by the lake, which will be audible form the hotel until around 1am.Ask nicely, and the owners will give you a tour of the wine cellar tucked away behind a quaint hatch door. There’s a stash of coffee-table tomes (including, if you’ll ’scuse the plug, some Smith hotel guides), for guests to browse and/or buy.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

Mrs Smith and I have established a mid-winter tradition: the local getaway. When we lived in New Amsterdam, we’d hop on trains from New York to the Hudson Valley for a bracing shot of quaint. Here in Europe, hoping to repeat the pattern in our newly adopted Amsterdam, we set out for the four-room Inn on the Lake in Broek in Waterland. Translation? ‘Trousers in Water Country.’ Pants packed, we jump in a cab in central Amsterdam, and as much as the cliché will allow, in 20 minutes we’re a world away.

Inn visitors have a choice to make: to Dam or not to Dam? (As in Amsterdam.) While this Broek

Dining information

Restaurant:

The Inn’s technically a guesthouse, and Pamela rustles up an impressive morning spread (try her wholesome home-made muesli). Dinner is available on request, for €35 a head; you'll need to book in the morning for dinner the same day – there’s a set menu of polished home cooking every week – or if you'd like a meal on your first night, arrange this when you book your rooms. Pamela has culinary pedigree: her father was a restaurateur and her brother is on the Dutch Masterchef jury.

Top table:

Stake out one of the conservatory tables, facing the lake. If there’s a load of you, sit on the raised dining area near reception.
