When I was 17 I spent a group vacation week here in Giethoorn. We went out onto the Wieden (Beulaker) daily with the 'punters' ,a narrow open boat that is moved along like the gondola's in Venice.
There are quite a few places around Meppel (main town in the area) that are worth visiting. However, Meppel is on the brink of two provinces, so you would not be able to detect that if you look at my Travel Page.
You could easily cycle between these places. It's a lovely rural area.
So here goes:
Kolderveen (very rural, dairy farm icecream)
Steenwijk (small town, Unesco heritage site)
Giethoorn (Venice of the north)
Staphorst (beautiful old farms)
Ruinerwold(stone's throw from Meppel)
Kallenkote (Indonesian bird park)
Frederiksoord(colony of welfare)
Vledder(small village, museum of fake art)
Zwolle (largest town in the area)
Meppel (lively nightlife, shopping, printing museum)
Schiphorst (stately home as exclusive hotel/restaurant, stork farm)
I have not stayed at any of these B&B's but I thought a list would be useful. I always stay with a friend in Meppel,... more travel advice
Unfortunately the Tourist Information website is only in Dutch and German. They do have an office in... more travel advice
