The lodge is located in Zaozernyy, 5 km away from Sortavala, Russia. It's 300 meters away from a lake where you can go swim in summer. The site is very quiet and not far from the village grocery store (20 minutes walk). The sauna is close to the house and allows you to fully relax. Next to the house is a barbecue, enough parking space for two cars, and a swing. Including a shower with warm water and WLAN with a good internet connection. Great for couples, solo travellers and families.
Welcome to the heart of Karelia! If you want to be far away from the city and simply have a very quiet place to relax, then you will enjoy your stay at our lodge. It simply is perfect to turn off the noise and stress of city life and have nature, fresh air, local foods, an fascinating view, your private sauna and helpful neighbours make your stay be special.
You will live in your own 2 room house: with a bedroom, a living room, a shower, a kitchen and a veranda. The sauna is actually a real russian "Banja". It is next to the house and will be heated with wood on demand (Just let us know and we take care of it). The lake is 300m away from the house. In summer you can walk to the pier and go swim.
