You really feel you are in Friesland in this lodge, not just outside on the terrace, but also inside. That’s because of all the windows, the great views and because it’s right on the water’s edge. It’s fully equipped so as to make your stay as pleasant as possible, and on chilly evenings, you can snuggle up around the wood burner.

More information

Where is it located?

The Reidhintsje is on the west side of Pean-buiten. It’s highlighted on the map in the slideshow above. The Reidhintsje has two terraces so there is always a place in the sun or in the shade. The water lodge has its own landing stage where you can throw out your fishing line or cast off in a boat.

You won’t notice the guests in the other houses at Pean-buiten very much when you’re in the Reidhintsje. At most, you might see your neighbours on the water, as just some of the many water sport enthusiasts that sail past. And in the summer months you’ll definitely see the boats from the sailing school pass by.

What does it look like inside?

There are 3 bedrooms on the cool side of the house. The largest bedroom has a double bed, while the other two rooms have single beds. In one of the bedrooms, the single can be pushed together to create a double bed; the third bedroom has a bunkbed. The single beds are Swiss Sense leather-look box springs (2.10 long and 0.90 wide). All beds are fitted with single duvets, pillows with protective covers and flannel bed sheet. Bed linen is available for rent from Pean-buiten, but you can also bring your own.

The bathroom has a shower, double sink unit and a toilet. There is a second toilet in the hallway – particularly nice when there are more than two of you in the lodge.

What does it look like on the outside?

There’s an outdoor lounge seat and a table for 6 on the terrace so you have a choice of seating. Outside lighting makes it cosy on the terrace well into the evening.

Surrounding area

Pean-buiten is on the Wijde Ee, an open lake that is part of one of the most beautiful sailing areas in Friesland. From the lake, you can sail north-east (without going under any bridges) to Grou or to the Alde Feanen national park and the villages of Eernewoude and the Veenhoop. Sail south-west and you get to Akkrum, Terherne and on to the Sneek lake.

You can enjoy this beautiful area by canoe, SUP, skiff, motorboat or sailboat. The diversity means the waters are suited to every level of water sports enthusiast, from beginner to skilled. In addition, there are various cycling and walking routes in the area. The combination of farmland and water are typical of the Frisian landscape. The hospitality and cultural amenities are excellent in the various surrounding villages such as Akkrum, Grou, the Veenhoop and Aldeboarn. Suggestions for tips out can be found in our activities section.

Akkrum (5 km) can be reached by car or bike over a winding country road. You may have to wait occasionally as the cows are brought in for milking at our neighbour’s farm. In Akkrum, there’s a supermarket, butcher, baker, chemist, cheese shop, book shop and a few lovely restaurants. Boats are available for rent from us, and in just 15 minutes you can sail to Grou with the best ice-cream parlour in the area, various restaurants and a proper ‘shopping mooring’. Pean has sailing routes available for you to try out with the electric skiff or a ‘valk’ sailing boat. You can simply rent a boat along with the holiday home.

Akkrum has a train station, and if you come by train, we can pick you up if necessary.
