De Durgerdam

A lakeside boutique hotel frayed by tall grasses, laundered linen whispering in the wind and a row of gabled, clapboard houses in misty hues skirting along the water’s edge. Here is a time-stood-still hamlet, home to a handful of former fisherfolk, charming architecture, sail boats, coots, and our new hotel and restaurant. 


Navigate the slow lane from Amsterdam: just 15 minutes bring you to a pocket of nautical and rural heritage, a sweet-spot refuge between meadows and the shore. Welcome to De Durgerdam.
