Heading to Steenwijk and looking for a more intimate and individualised place to stay? You’re in luck. The city has several independently-owned B&Bs that offer distinctive lodging choices—from an inn that provides the choice to be closer to nature, while one that will allow being in close proximity to the town. At the same time, you enjoy the peace and quiet.
What’s best is that you get to immerse yourself in Steenwijk’s culture as local people run these bed and breakfasts. Trust that the innkeepers at these places are extremely friendly and will make you feel at home.

If you want to traverse further, you can get to the museums, shops, theatre, and restaurants as they are all a minutes’ walk away from the bed and breakfast. It’s also a perfect spot to stay in if you have plans to visit Giethoorn or the Weerribben.
