We invite you to be our guest for one or more days: relax, unwind and revitalise in a quiet, beautiful and peaceful surrounding. Have a look at the perfect starry sky on a clear night.
The name 'The Dutch Station' was chosen because of Rein's love of trains and because a station is a resting place in the Netherlands.
