Please share something about the history of your present bed and breakfast.
Our house is a former doctor's house from 1933. The doctor died already in 1939 at the border with Germany when the war just started. He was shot when he was crossing the border and the soldier did not recognized him as the doctor. In the years after it has many functions like family replacement home, family house, maternity training aids. We worked at several places in Europe but when we came back to the Netherlands we decide that we want to start something of our own. And because the kids where young we chose a small village Sint Odilienberg, just outside of Roermond to grow up in and have our own family B&B. We renovated it in 7 weeks and then all rooms have their own bathroom with toilet, sink and shower.
