Sleeping in a wine barrel, that is what makes a stay at the Hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren (The Lady of Stavoren) so very special. The wine barrels are of Swiss origin and used to contain more than 14,500 liters of wine. The beds stand inside the wine barrel and the round wooden walls give a very cozy and secure feeling, like in the galley of a ship. The ceiling of the wine barrel is high enough, so you can stand up in it. At the back of each barrel is a doorway is made, leading to the sitting room with shower and toilet. Also the other rooms are comfortably furnished, with private shower and toilet and television. The hotel rooms in the new wing are more spacious and have a radio, telephone and a bath.

In earlier times Stavoren was a thriving port, the immediate location by the sea Zuiderzee was particularly beneficial for overseas trade. After the impoldering of the Zuiderzee, which formed the lake IJsselmeer, the town has a mainly historical and cultural value, which attracts Dutch tourists as well as tourist from abroad. The IJsselmeer has its appeal, many water sports are practiced here. The IJsselmeer has a direct connection to the Frisian Lakes. From the hotel de Vrouwe van Stavoren you have a beautiful view over the old port with the in- and outbound shipping traffic, often including many ships such as authentic clippers to admire. Weather permitting, guests can watch everything from the large terrace.


Obviously, a visit to the statue of the Lady of Stavoren is a must. According to the famous legend, the wealthy widow wanted one of her captains to bring back the most valuable thing in the world from his journey to distant countries. He brought back a ship filled with beautiful grain, but the angry widow had everything dumped into the sea. If you want to know the end of this story, visit this museum Toankamer 't Ponthus where a special room is furnished. In summer, a local ferry sails to the beautiful woods of Gaasterland.

    A Dream Come True

    The room was comfortable and different from amy hotel I have stayed in. The complimenary bottle of wine was a surprise. The staff was understanding and helpful. The breakfast was a generous variety.

    Barrel hotel is worth staying at

    This was a very nice place with friendly service in a very pretty property overlooking a nice garden. It is centrally located across from the main harbor in town, very close to many shops and stores. The food was good and the room was clean.
