As Hallerbos B&B is opening this autumn, we have no official B&B guest reviews to share with you yet. But we do have literally thousands of wonderful memories of our times together here over the past 30 years with our 37-member De Cort family, our 27-member “Gite Group” of friends, our two daughters’ scouts groups, Jaak’s football team and their families, my work colleagues and their families – for team retreats, Easter egg hunts, communions, spring walks through the hyacinth flowers, summer BBQs and pool parties, autumn forest walks, Halloween campfires, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, new years’ celebrations, birthdays, wedding parties, just chilling on the back terrace, etc., etc. We look forward to seeing them all again here when Hallerbos B&B opens this autumn! And we are delighted to welcome new friends and colleagues!
A little piece of heaven
Amazing ! Bravo! So happy for you. You have no idea how appealing this is to me! A dream to escape to your new adventure! Much luck, the photos don’t lie! This is a little piece of Heaven! Don’t delay, make a reservation before it’s booked solid! I stayed there on several occasions and it’s a royal escape from busy lives. The views are unbeatable, the forest so inviting, and the hosts are among the best people I’ve ever met! You’re so close to the big city, and yet you completely unwind from the moment you pull in the driveway. Memories are made in this place. I can’t recommend it enough.

The most beautiful home in Essenbeek
The most beautiful home in Essenbeek turns into a B&B and I can’t wait I’ve been loving coming to your home for these past years! It’s a beautiful place and I can’t wait for the B&B to open!

It's a fantastic, peaceful place with beautiful nature
My fantastic, dear, Belgian friends, whom I have known for 30 years, have realised their dream and opened their B&B! They have actually built a floor on top of their own house (where I still knocked down walls ). The result is worth seeing! Super nice! Apart from the fact that it is a fantastic, peaceful place with beautiful nature, the Hallerbos is walking distance with its beautiful purple hyacinths in spring, nice bike and walking routes, you can certainly eat very well. The owner’s cooking skills are excellent. The reception is very warm and welcome! A swimming pool in the garden which can be used… What more could you want? I would say: go and see! Book a room and enjoy the perfection! Enjoy Hallerbos B&B

This family are great hosts
I had the pleasure of visiting your place, and I can testify that you and your family are great hosts. Sending big hugs all the way from Addis, Ethiopia. And wishing you the best for your plans with the B&B.

They will spoil you with delicious comfort food
My aunt Missy’s B&B in the beautiful Hallerbos! She will spoil you with delicious comfort food, magnificent views from the rooms and the best stories from her time as a top restaurant chef girl in Boston and Martha’s Vineyard
