Would you like to wake up in the former skipper’s house, relax and experience what it is like to live on the water? This is your chance! A stay on a houseboat is really special. When the wind blows you gently roll on the waves, you hear the rippling water, you see boats and canoes passing by and you hear coots and ducks quacking. As guest of our Bed & Breakfast you will stay in the former skipper’s house, which will be completely at your disposal. It consists of a living room, two bedrooms, bathroom, wheel house and many outdoor seats. The hospitable hostess Anneke and her skipper Wim will guarantee a wonderful stay!
The Robbedoes is located at Havenweg 19k in Amersfoort. In front of the door there are a couple of free parking places. You can enter the Robbedoes through a large gate, over the quay and then through the front door. On your right hand you will find your private part of the ship. The hall will lead you to the salon (living room) with bedrooms, bathroom or wheel house (through stairs). You will have your own key, so you can leave and enter the Robbedoes whenever you want. You will always have the entire skipper’s house for yourself. During your stay, your hostess Anneke will be at your disposal!
This is your living room during your stay. To preserve the authentic
feeling, the living room has been furnished in the original 60’s style. It’s a
