Welcome to the website for our Gastgeverij het Sparnakelnest, your accommodation in The Netherlands (Drenthe).

Gastgeverij het Sparnakelnest is a small-scale, smoke-free hotel with the cosy atmosphere and personal ambiance of a 'bed & breakfast'.

Het Sparnakelnest boasts comfortable rooms and a spacious lounge. We can accommodate nine guests. Its setting, along a canal amidst agricultural surroundings with vast woods within walking distance, evokes a sense of serenity and space.
We serve a hearty breakfast in the morning and, if you wish, a three-course meal in the evening. All our ingredients are fresh and as a rule we prefer biological produce. Vegetarian meals are most willingly served upon request. Coffee and tea are provided in the evenings.

We look forward to welcoming you to the heart of the Dutch province of Drenthe,

your hostess and host, Rien Sparnaaij and Gerrit van Brakel

Why not visit our Gastgeverij outside the holiday season, e.g.:
In May or June (when wild orchids grow and asparagus is in season) or
In September or October (when the leaves take on their autumn colours and mushrooms abound) or
During the winter months (stately trees shed of leaves exhibit their grandeur and if there is any snow ....!)
