The spacious sauna by the lake, built in 2008 and designed to be used throughout the year, can be heated by either wooden or electric stove. The sauna building has a shower and heated floors. You can admire the beautiful views of the lake while enjoying the sauna.


The fireplace room, along with its mini kitchen, is a comfortable place to spend time. It has a fridge, microwave oven, coffeemaker, kettle and dishes. When it’s cold outside, you can enter the sauna and the shower directly from the fireplace room. And should you feel tired, there is a couch by the fireplace for a good sleep.


You can relax on the veranda of the large sauna, or enjoy the warm sun on the patio by the lake.

The extensive courtyard is lined by birch trees, which create a shade over a romantic log cabin and its woodshed. By the water there is a boathouse, storing our boat which is always ready for an excursion on the lake.


Departing the Helsinki metropolitan area, in less than two hours you can be with us in the middle of the fields, shaded by tall courtyard trees, by berry bushes and lilacs, enjoying the clear waters of the lake rich with fish.
