The facade of De Warme Hand dates from the 17th century. The building at that time served as an inn, where hunters and their horses could spend the night, rest and warm up. A tactically located place where people could travel from Utrecht across the water to both Amsterdam and Muiden.
On May 5, 1812, the complex was sold by Neeltje Kazen (widow of Dirk van Dalsem) to Johan Christoffel. In 1854, he sold the house again to Leendert van der Vliet, as being "a house with yards, furnished into four workers' houses, with three sheds and a garage, traditionally called De Warme Hand, standing and located near Mijnden, municipality of Loosdrecht, large 4 rods, eighty cubits, etc. "
Mr. Willem Isaac Doude van Troostwijk, owner of the Rupelmonde country estate from 1871 to 1911, also left "the house De Warme Hand" after his death in 1911. At that time, there were no more hunters on the Vecht. As a reminder of the past, De Warme Hand was then a café and bread shop. In 1965 Willem Spruit and his wife Annie Spruit-de Graaf bought the house. The building was restored, and one house was constructed of the then two houses: the current Warme Hand. Where there were then 2 driveways, one on each side of the house, one is still in use today.
