Welcome to Bed & Breakfast De Groene Mus!
We will first introduce ourselves. We are Ron van Breukelen and Ineke Buijsman.
Ron owns Onestep, a software company. And Ineke had a daycare center until recently. Ineke will soon welcome you to the B&B.
More than 4 years ago we moved from Medemblik to Bungalowpark De Vlietlanden, in Wervershoof.
We now live in a beautiful spot at the back of the park, by the water.
We enjoy this beautiful place every day. We have a spacious garden with several terraces. It is wonderfully quiet and there are many different types of birds in the garden.
Because we enjoy this place so much, we would like to share it with other people. When Ineke stopped her daycare, we therefore decided to start a B&B on our top floor.
Our B&B is completely vegan. This means that we do not use animal materials and that the breakfast is also completely plant-based.
Ron has been a vegetarian all his life and has been a convinced vegan for a number of years. Ineke eats vegan at home.
We like to share our experiences with others and to show and taste that vegan life is very easy and above all delicious.
Everyone is welcome in our B&B
Sustainability is also very important to us. Our house has solar panels, we have a heat pump and we separate our waste. The B&B is furnished as much as possible with second-hand furniture, which we have refurbished ourselves.
De Groene Mus stands for cosiness, hospitality, nature, sustainability and veganism.
Come and experience it!
