Holiday house

The Border House


The Grenshuis is a luxury holiday home of 125 m2 with three bedrooms. A spacious bedroom and two single bedrooms. There is also a camping bed and highchair.
The living room is spacious and tastefully furnished with an open kitchen, well equipped with all kinds of equipment.

The Grenshuis stands on a very spacious site (1,200 m2) on the recreation park 'Park Drentheland', on the border between Drenthe and Friesland.

There are many facilities at the park, including a heated swimming pool with water slide, play and climbing equipment, mini-golf, tennis, basketball, table tennis, small shop, riding stables, bicycle rental, etc.

The park is directly adjacent to the Drents-Friese Woud nature park, where you can take wonderful cycling, walking and horse riding trips.

In the immediate vicinity you will find various amusement parks, the Noorder Dierenpark, an open-air theater and many cozy green villages.

At about 5 km. Aekinger lake is located nearby and you will find sandy beaches where you can sunbathe and enjoy a wonderful dip in a spotless natural lake.
You reach the lake via the road or via the forest cycle path.

We calculate the price for all this all in, so without all kinds of extra costs for the use of linen, swimming pool or the like. You pay us a fixed price, with the additional costs a fixed amount for tourist tax and for final cleaning.
You know in advance where you stand and the house you choose is not suddenly much more expensive than you thought due to all kinds of cost.

No pets please.

Welcome to 'Het Grenshuis'! We bought the house from Karel Jonkers and his wife. They have made this place into a paradise, where you easily find peace and rest. The house is fully equipped. Feeling 'at home' comes naturally here. That is why we are going to change the name to 'Ananda Valley'. Valley of Happiness, Cheerfulness, Joy. We are happy to share our happiness with you and we look forward to meet you here and wish you a wonderful time here.

Location & tips

Additional information

The Border House is located directly on the border between Friesland and Drenthe.
Our horses run in the land behind the house in Friesland and the house itself is situated in Drenthe.
That border was formerly in the local spoken Stellingwerf: The Laandweer, which means as much as a sort of field resistance. They consisted of dense bushes behind a rampart with a ditch on the border between Friesland and Drenthe, probably made in the 15th century by Drents to stop the Frisians conquering there land.

Near the house, at runningdistance,you find Villa Nova, formerly a nice house, now a hotel with a restaurant where you can dine. On the website Villa Nova Zorgvlied you will find much information about the environment, local events and attractions, museums etc.
This is also to find on on, for example and

We mention here : Museum Miramar, Planetron Dwingeloo, Butterfly Paradise Havelte Speelstad Orange etc.

The Border House distinguishes itself from many other apartments by the many opportunities and diversity.
It is located on a recreation park with activities, liveliness both in and around the stables as elsewhere in the park by the pool, etc.
At the same time you can withdraw yourself completely in privacy of the garden of the Border House, and imagine yourself in the forest, because the Border House is located in a quiet part of the park and has an own site of 1200 m2, completely surrounded by trees and shrubs.
