Bed en Breakfast The Garage InN is a “drive-in” Bed & Breakfast accommodation situated in nature park “de Brabantse Biesbosch” in the Netherlands and is suitable for 2 adults, 2 children and …..a car.
In 2013 we developed the idea of turning our freestanding double garage into a practical B&B accommodation.
As giving up the complete garage wasn’t an option for the car loving owner Rob, we chose the best of both worlds; a B&B where you can park your beloved car, motor cycle or any other vehicle next to your bed!
Sleeping next to your greatest love, (besides your wife or girlfriend), which old-timer admirer wouldn’t want to experience this? Of course, it is only a suggestion and suitable for the real “diehards”. Naturally, you can park your car next, in front or behind the B&B as well.
The accommodation is completely private and open plan (apart from the bathroom). Garage, bedroom, living and dining room together with the pantry are one open space together with the mezzanine floor above the bedroom where, if required, two children can sleep in the attic area. And last but not least, the B&B has its own private garden (facing west) with wonderful views over the countryside.
The pantry offers coffee and tea making facilities. You could also make use of the breakfast and dinner service by home cook Best of Bridget’s. The menu is displayed on the website and placed within the B&B for your convenience.
Lay-out of the B&B:
The garage is suitable for a car, motor cycle(s), bicycle(s) up to max. sizes of 2,20×4,50×1,90m (wxlxh) and has a smooth concrete floor.
Right next to the garage part (on your left) you will find the bedroom which has a wooden floor and a comfortable box spring bed (1,60 x 2,00m). The bed can be made up as a double, but also as twin beds.
From the sleeping area you access your ensuite shower room on the one side, which is completed with toilet, washbasin and shower.
In the sitting area you will find a cosy couch, a smoking chair, a tv and nostalgic record player. There are several records available, but feel free to bring your own collection along!
The entire B&B has central heating which is connected to the main house. On top of that you will find an old fashioned (closed) wood/coal burner. Wood or coal can be obtained from the owners without charge.
Finally, there is also a small attic area (mezzanine) above the sleeping/garage area which can be accessed by an old suspendable ladder and …..
On this attic floor there are two more beds (size 80x190cm) Because of the limited height in the attic (1,70m under the main beam), we feel that this area is only suitable for children.
From the living area there is access to a private garden/terrace facing west. This garden has garden lounge chairs so you can enjoy the views and the sun in luxury.
If you are lucky you might even see some deer or other game, depending on the season. During a warm summer evening, whilst enjoying a cool glass of wine and some tapas, you will feel so relaxed that you won’t feel like going to sleep at all….
Bridget has her own catering service and offers you the opportunity to partake
in the daily menu, during weekdays and in the week-end there is a Surprise Menu.
Alle meals are served in the Garage InN. For more details see www.bestofbridgets.nl.
