My family have been renting multiple cabins and even some hotel rooms at Aalsmeer for decades!! Aalsmeer has been a bit of heaven for us. Now- the cabins need updating (new bed frames/mattresses, new refrigerators/freezers...) but we went knowing we were staying at a camp and

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and giving us input. We are always looking for ways to improve while maintaining our nostalgia. Each year we try and make an improvement/upgrade. While I do not foresee replacing our heavy natural wood bed frames, we have begun to replace refrigerators and will continue to do so. Additionally, coffee makers and toasters have been added. On the note of the view, you will be happy to see I have added pictures that reflect the views from the motel rooms/yard. Years ago there were trees that obstructed the motel's sight but that has improved immensely with removal and trimming of brush. We thank you for your famliy's many years vacationing here. We look forward to seeing our Aalsmeer families return each year as well as watching new ones visit for the first time.

We have been going to Aalsmere for many many years. There is something for everyone. There is swimming, boating, fishing or just relaxing and recharging. If you want to be on the go there are beweries, wineries, antiques, shopping, Opera and of course the Baseball Hall of Fame.

I was there a couple weeks after Labor Day so it was definitely the off season. The first room I was put in had no Internet service. I asked for another room and was given one next to the router's antenna. The room re-assignment wasn't a problem since there didn't seem to be

"Cabins have lakeview, Motel rooms do not. All cabins/motel rooms have access to lake beach, dock, and water!!!"
"If you need Internet room 28 is the best."
"the cabins are good since they are closer to the lake but I dont think they have AC."
"This motel has several motel rooms and several cottages. I did not observe what the cottages looked like."
"All the cabins except for one have two rooms. Each cabin has excellent views and access to the lake."
