Our lodges, ‘floating' above the landscape in the green edge of Amsterdam - embedded in nature, peaceful nights, away from the hustle. Made from over 90% dutch timber, which gives the lodges their comfortable and cosy ambiance. Large decks, surrounded by green, blackbirds, ducks, geese and yet; the centre of Amsterdam is only a 30 minute bike or bus ride away. Strategically located, so Haarlem, Zandvoort and Bloemendaal are easily accessible by car, bike or public transport. Free parking just across the road.
Guests we look for:
- Above the age of 25 when traveling in a group.
- Couples welcome.
- Families welcome.
- Respectful for neighbours and nature.

Freelodge = slow-tourism, away from the busy downtown. Of course we have WiFi (€7,50 per day) but here you can also do without. A famous eco-store, café and organic orchard is a few minutes walk away. Rental bikes are available, as well as laundry services. Do you want to taste local produce? We would love to organise something for you. Children are more then welcome! They can play around the lodge or at the nearby public adventure playground. We can offer baby-sitting and have a baby-cot available. Welcome!
You will get access to the entire lodge. Make yourself at home!
Vegetable gardens, flower meadows, sheep, herbs, honey and bees: Gardens of West are a mecca for everyone who likes the polder, fresh vegetables and picking fruit, playing outside, canoeing, running and cycling (for rent at our lodges ).
There is a fine ecological shop and lunch place in the Fruittuin, 200 meters walk from our Freelodge village. Pick your own fruit and pick your own eggs! There are regular activities such as workshops, music and pizza nights around the campfire. You can find an ordinary Lidl about 1.5 kilometers away. There is also the bus stop for fast buses to Central Station and Sloterdijk Station.
For the kids the outdoor life is a party. We can also make nice day programs, or arrange babysitting, so that parents can go to the city in peace and quiet.
Parking is free at the public car park at the lodges. The site itself is car-free. At the ladies of the Keukenlodge you can also go for local beers and organic wine, fresh herbal tea and vagues about everything.
