“Very cute little house, and Bruna and her husband are very kind. Bruna brought me fresh bread from the baker shortly after I arrived 😊Very clean and the perfect size for one person; I would definitely recommend if you want something that feels homey and is close to the airport. It does have a “cabin” feel to it, and I had to kill a few bugs during my stay, so maybe not for the less outdoorsy.”
Our cozy guesthouse is located on an island on the Leische Vaart at the Braassemermeer.

“Lovely relaxed space with all necessities, including a fully stocked refrigerator, coffee and tea. Outdoor facilities also amply present. Read with a beer on the waterfront in a spacious sitting area until dark. Beautiful canoe and bicycle tours. What else do you want. You have to take the nearby busy road for granted. Is amply compensated by all the beauty and hospitality. Partly thanks to the beautiful weather, an unforgettable time. See you next time!”

“What can I say about my stay at the Hedgehog Cottage. I came to this country knowing no one and not knowing many things about the local way of doing things. I went into the Hedgehog Cottage a lonely soul and I left having a Dutch family. Mark and Marcel have been outstanding as hosts. So helpful, so supportive, so kind. The house is kept meticulously clean. Mark went out of his way to ensure that I was comfortable. I wish the world had more Marks and Marcels. People who are just so kind and giving. I will never forget my stay with them. It has made my transition to the Nethelands so much more easier. They were always available to give advice, to help when necessary and to encourage me finding my feet here. Mark's breakfasts are divine. Being a vegetarian wasn't a problem at all. Mark just accommodated me in his usual efficient way. So, all in all, my stay at the Hedgehog Cottage was first class. Absolutely superb. Thank you Mark and Marcel for a truly lovely stay.”
