Surrounded by the beautiful countryside of North Holland, the former Dutch Reformed church of Etersheim is located next to the Marker lake. This historical heritages is our home since 2002. Since 2012 we have added two nice rooms with private bathrooms for bed and breakfast: Year round you can stay high up in the church, in the spacious Top floor room, which offers a breathtaking view over the agrarian landscape and Marker Lake, or the cozy, original Ground floor room. Use the drop down menu on top of this page for more information about the two rooms, the history of the building and the location, and for contact information.



Saskia ist eine super nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Das Zimmer war auch sehr schön, sauber und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Wir haben uns total wohlgefühlt und würden diese Unterkunft jedem weiterempfehlen. 😊

Sehr schöne, besondere und ruhige Atmosphäre in einer ehemaligen kleinen Kirche. Das Zimmer war perfekt ausgestattet, sogar Küchenutensilien incl. Kaffeemaschine waren vorhanden. Das Frühstück war super und die Restaurant-Empfehlung von Saskia „De Oude School“ in Warder phantastisch.

I had a great stay here during Easter weekend, the room is very spacious, light and with nice views all around. And very cool that it’s in a old church up in the tower. The breakfast was really nice as well, warm fresh bread, boiled eggs, cheese, fruit and yoghurt every morning. Would stay again! Thanks Saskia

So peaceful and such a beautiful building! Really enjoyed our stay here. Delicious breakfast in a plant-filled and bright living room with big church windows was a highlight! Very welcoming hosts and animals too :)

This was a wonderful stay. My husband and I and our two children stayed for just one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was plenty big enough for four and the amazing windows ensured that everyone woke up to beautiful views. Also everything was very clean. Breakfast the next morning was delicious and Saskia was very kind and responsive when we were making arrangements for arrival.

Das Airbnb ist ein Traum und Saskia ist ein toller Mensch, freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Gegend dort ist super zum Entspannen und auch zum Radfahren optimal. Egal ob links oder rechts um den Deich, es gibt überall was Schönes zu entdecken. Nur zu empfehlen :-)

The church is a very nice building with lots of beautiful details. The room we stayed in was very comfortable. The house is located in an very beautiful area with lots of nature and landscape. Saskia is a very lovely host. Thanks for everything :)

Wir haben zwei wunderbare Nächte bei Saskia verbracht und sind restlos begeistert. Die zauberhafte Kirche, Saskias unkomplizierte Art und die wunderbare Umgebung - alles hat gepasst! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und das Frühstück war jeden Morgen ein Highlight. Warme Brötchen, Eier, frisch gepresster Saft und köstlicher Kaffee! Und das alles in einer so tollen Umgebung! Wir würden sofort wiederkommen!

Una vista espectacular, alojamiento confortable y cálido, desayuno delicioso, un carisma único de la anfitriona y su familia, una casa hermosa y mítica aunque algo lejana. Me encantó el lugar y la experiencia.

This church home is NOT to be missed if you are traveling the Netherlands. From Amsterdam, it is a short car ride through the tulip fields to this magical bed & breakfast. Such a warm greeting upon arrival, a crispy clean, white decor room full of light, a sweet touch (literally) of a chocolate egg filled dish and a jaw-dropping breakfast basket stuffed with fresh squeezed oj, warm eggs and toast, yogurt with jams, frothed milk and coffee were so appreciated but.......the absolute best were the views from the 3rd floor church windows (both sunrise and sunset) and will be imprinted in our minds forever. #5star

숙소 주변의 풍경이 힐링 그 자체입니다. 편안하고 깨끗하고 분위기있는 숙소와 평화로운 주변 풍경이 마음의 평화를 가져다 줍니다. 조식도 풍성합니다. 모든게 다 좋았습니다.

Saskia's place is amazing! I have never seen a place like this before. It's an attraction itself! Go there to have a great accomodation with a great hospitality and in addition, the house is the best attraction around! Saskia was very helpful though we arrived very late in the night and our baby was sick. A huge thank you to her!

Augustin, April 2019

Super hébergement dans une chapelle rénovée avec beaucoup de goût ! Situé au milieu des polders la vue est juste sublime. Saskia est adorable et son petit déjeuner à ravi toute la famillle. La chambre est grande et lumineuse. A refaire sans aucune hésitation !!

Verhaege, February 2019

Wir hatten das obere Zimmer, eigentlich schon eine kleine Wohnung. Küche klein und fein, super Ausblick, tolles Wohn-, Ess-, Schlafzimmer. Modernes Bad. Alles spitze. Wir kommen wieder! Netter Service, lekker Frühstück. Und das in einer umgebauten Kirche.

We have been living at several airbnb homes in Europe, and we have mostly been quite satisfied. Saskias place beats them all!! From the moment we stepped into the old church, we could feel that this house was something special. Beautifully renovated with aesthetic sense, so we could just relax and enjoy the peace and very nice surroundings inside and outside. The apartment was perfect for us (mother, father and a daughter at 11). Saskia has made an extensive folder clearly divided into sections with informations about the cities and attractions that are nearby. We had dinner at a nice restaurant in the old school in a neighbour village. We highly recommend this place and would gladly have given 6 stars, if it was possible.

Really really nice location for nature lovers. It was just a night but the nature is impressive. I think we are too many years living in the city so we find Sakias home very cool and wonderful (smile). We can only recommend Saskia’s home. Is the best option also if you want visit next nice city’s like Amsterdam. You can visit Amsterdam (full of life and sure, noise sometimes) but you can relax and tank energy in this wonderful peacefully place.

Magnifique maison, décoration, rien est laissé au hasard, le petit déjeuner est préparé avec amour et l’accueil y est chaleureux ! Le paysage est apaisant, reposant, très beau. Si vous voulez vous ressourcer c’est l’endroit parfait. Merci Saskia!

Adriana, October 2018

Lovely country setting and our upstairs area looked out over it all. Saskia and her family made us feel very welcome and we shared a happy meal in their back garden. The little kitchenette had everything we needed and the bathroom was as good as any 5 star hotel. A comfortable bed gave me the best night sleep of our trip. A fan really helped for the unseasonably hot weather.

Eine perfekte Alternative zu den Hotels in Amsterdam für alle, die die typisch holländische Landschaft, die Ruhe und ein besonderes Ambiente schätzen. Auch in Sachen Sauberkeit, Atmosphäre und Frühstück können die viel teureren Hotels von dieser Unterkunft einiges lernen!
