The Pine Cabin
Slow down surrounded by silence and endless panoramas on serene farmland. The Pine Cabin is a unique off grid hide-away. A two-person ecological retreat on a secluded spot with a view on the meadows and Lemelerberg. A cosy home to relax and recharge in the middle of nature at one of the most beautiful spots in Vechtdal Overijssel. Off grid, comfortable, and built with eco-friendly, natural materials. Wake up in this quiet place and enjoy the view from your bed. Every season is beautiful. Here the nights are dark and you can hear the call of the owl and drumming of a wood pecker. Spot the wildlife, and we invite you to leave a note in our guestbook. With a bit of luck you can see deer and rabbits, coming by.
natural & off grid
The cabin is completely off grid thanks to the latest techniques and comfortably furnished with ecological, natural materials from the By Mölle collection. In the evening you dream away in a spacious double bed with soft By Mölle linens, an ecological duvet and natural mattress. The cabin is made from FSC certified Northern European pine wood and insulated with flax. The electricity for lighting and electric cooking is generated by solar panels and we have a private water system for a hot shower and toilet. The wastewater ends up in the septic tank so that it does not end up directly in nature. Through large windows at the front, the panoramic view outside comes fully inside. Open the doors and and hear the birds sing. Relax on the veranda, enjoy the panoramic view, take beautiful walks on the Lemelerberg, or take your mountain bike to explore one of the many tracks in the area. The cabin is located directly on the Pieterpad, and we leave you with nice tips and maps of the area.

nature all around
With approximately 1000 hectares, the Lemelerberg is the largest nature reserve of Landschap Overijssel and designated by Europe as Natura 2000. More than 150,000 years ago, an ice cap of 100 to 400 meters thick covered the northern half of our country. The glacier pushed everything in front of it. This created a hill with a height of 78 meters: the Lemelerberg, where you can enjoy beautiful views.
For part of the year, the heathland is grazed by a herd of about 200 sheep. It is a beautiful cycling and walking area. With a bit of luck you can see deer, sand lizard, polecat, pine marten, stoat, badger, honey buzzard, goshawk, woodlark, tree pipit, nightjar, buzzard and raven. In winter, the great gray shrike hibernates here. Poppy, margriet and cornflower bloom in the grasslands.
There are several beautiful trails on the Lemelerberg:
-The Blue route (8 km)
-The drift sand route (southern slope 3.5 km)
-The Green route (2 km)
