The cozy De Wever Lodge is located on the outskirts of Otterlo, right next to the Dutch National Park Hoge Veluwe. This special place welcomes its guests in a family atmosphere with 14 rooms, two cottages and a cabin in the forest. Waking up with the chirping of the birds and being right in nature provides the necessary peace and quiet during a break in this great accommodation. De Wever Lodge is just as suitable for couples as it is for families. Thanks to the quiet location, children traveling with you can play in the fresh air without worrying, while their parents sit together in the garden or on the terrace over a coffee. Nevertheless, there are numerous possibilities for exciting activities in the vicinity of the lodge, which make the eyes of the little ones shine.
Gemütlich wohnen bei De Wever
All accommodation options at De Wever Lodge are comfortable and cosily furnished, so that every guest immediately feels at home. The room variants and the two cottages on the site are particularly extensively equipped. These can be booked in addition to the 14 rooms in the main building. They provide additional privacy, since this type of accommodation is not in the middle of the other guest rooms. Newly renovated with modern facilities, a large king-size bed and a private terrace, the cottages have everything you need for a relaxing family holiday.
The cabin in the forest is a bit more economical, but still cosy. With two separate rooms, it is perfect for larger families. Waking up in the middle of nature, sitting outside undisturbed and, with a bit of luck, observing the native animals is a very special experience.
Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in der Umgebung
The national park at De Wever Lodge is an ideal excursion destination in the immediate vicinity and is perfect when the sun is shining. There is an unbelievable natural diversity to discover on 5,400 hectares. In the moors, along the lakes, in the various forests and on the fields of the park, moufflons, deer, wild boars and many other wild animals live. To go on a little exploration tour, lodge guests can use the 1,800 freely available white bicycles in the national park. Around 40 kilometers of cycle paths are available to explore the area extensively. Alternatively, the local forest rangers love to go on guided hikes and show you the special features of the park. Children’s safaris are also possible, where you can even spend the night under the starry sky. Anyone interested in art and culture should not miss the Kröller-Müller Museum in the national park. In addition to a great sculpture park, it also contains many works by Van Gogh.
A visit to Burgers’ Zoo, less than 20 kilometers away, is extremely worthwhile. Exciting animals such as Sumatran tigers, water monitors, aardvarks and gorillas await visitors there. For younger guests, the adventure land in the zoo in the form of a large playground is another highlight. Since the play area is divided for the smallest and larger children, each child can play age-appropriately while the parents treat themselves to a little break with coffee and cake.
