De Overleekerhoeve, Monnickendam
In the immediate vicinity of Monnickendam (5 km) and a short distance from Amsterdam and other historic sites is B&B De Overleekerhoeve. A working farm, in the heart of the Waterlandse Veenweide district, in the ribbon village of Overleek.
Our farm accommodation
Bed and Breakfast De Overleekerhoeve has:
- 3 four-person apartments and one 6-person apartment
- 2 four-person rooms.
- One room with bathroom is suitable for disabled visitors.
All rooms are fully furnished and have:

From the farmhouse living room, where breakfast is served, you can admire the cows and calves in their cowshed through a glass partition. An extra dimension to staying on the farm!
A unique feature of De Overleekerhoeve is that the hay barn, cowshed and house are all under one roof. This is what we call a langhuisboerderij (longhouse farm). The cows are milked on the farm every day, and just as other farm animals are fed, watered and given clean shelter. As a guest of the farmer you are always welcome to come and watch the cows being milked or be shown around our farm.
Garden and terrace
To the front of the farmhouse is the pretty, flower-filled country garden. To the rear is a landing stage and waterside terrace which looks out over a nature reserve. The uninterrupted views give you all the peace and space that you could wish for.
Discover the surrounding countryside by boat or bike or on foot. Around the shores of the IJsselmeer, explore the picturesque fishing villages of Monnickendam, Edam and Volendam and the island of Marken.
