Water lodge Skries (6-8 pers)

6 personen 3 slaapkamer(s) 6 bed(den) 1 badkamer(s)

The Skries water lodge is a lovely holiday home for families of up to 8 people or groups of friends. It’s very secluded surrounded by trees and there is plenty of space for children to play. Skries is close to the playground and to the shallow pond at Pean-buiten. The pointed roof and the glass gables create a huge sense of space inside. Skries means black-tailed godwit in Frisian; a well-known and protected farmland bird that you will certainly also hear.

The open kitchen is fully fitted and the layout means that the one who is cooking isn’t separated from the others. The living area has two fixed settees and comfy armchairs, so there’s always a comfortable place to sit. The dining table seats 6 and is placed in the centre of the room. The wood burner keeps you warm on late evenings and in the winter. Naturally, the lodge is well insulated and there is additional heating for on cold days.

Waar staat het huisje?

The Skries is on the south-east side of Pean-buiten, it’s highlighted on the map in the slideshow above. The house is surrounded by enough space for children to play and there is a spot for a campfire.

You won’t notice the guests in the other houses at Pean-buiten very much when you’re in the Skries. And if you are part of a larger group and have rented the water lodges Goudûle and/or Ljip, you can slip through the trees as if you have your own little cluster of homes at Pean-buiten.

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.
