De Ecolodges are located on the edge of the village Veessen, wonderfully quiet in the lee of cities and highways, a stone's throw from the IJssel. Surrounded by vast meadows and fields and close to the beautiful Veluwe forests and heaths. Nearby are the villages of Heerde, Epe and Hattem where a weekly market is held. Do you want a day out with the kids? Then you will undoubtedly make them happy with a visit to Walibi Holland, Hellendoorn or the Dolfinarium. If you prefer to visit the bustle of the city, you can drive to Apeldoorn, Deventer or Zwolle within half an hour.
The area between Veessen en Wapenveld is a beautiful rural and special area with a special function. In order to better protect the villages and towns against high water levels of the IJssel, Veessen and Wapenveld constructed an eight kilometer long high water channel. This high water channel is also known as the 'Delta Works of the Veluwe'. The waterworks are right behind 't Lennepserf and you can enjoy walking and cycling between the two dikes. If you follow the path on the dike, you will always get a surprising perspective on the surroundings: there is nature, a cycle path, a canoe route and a bird hide.
