Cute and tidy app. 70 m2 log cottage for 1-8 persons. For the guests use there is a service building that has sauna, 2 showers, dressing room, wc and kitchen with amenities. By this arrangement our guests have two buildings for their use, total 130 m2. Our guests have valuated especially quietness, nature, cottage's interior and cleanliness and ability to totally relax and spend quality time.
We can accomondate up to 12-13 persons in our two cabins (the other is Old tile house) . Welcome!

The space

The old vicarage is active horse farm. The farm has private lake waterside and our guests are free to use our rowing boat and enjoy the lake scenery from a small terrance. In the winter the lake is excellent for skiing or even skating. We have prive track which is 1 km long and we train our horses at. The guests are welcome to use it for jogging and walks.
The service building has fully equipped in kitchen, wood burning sauna stove with nicest "löyly", a gas grill and small terrace for enjoying the scenery to the lake. When the cooking is done in separate building, the cabin stays fresh and clean and also gives our guests more opportunity to select their favorite spot. Water is from our communal pipes, it is fresh and safe to drink.

Guest access

Our guests can enjoy the farm, just make a note that we do have animals and one needs to be cautious and not feed the horses. You can hike, jog, use the rowing boat or just relax in the swing sleeper while waiting the sauna to heat up.

Interaction with guests

Our home at the farm too so should you need anything, we can help. Both our cottages have their own privacy and we rent them out for only one party at the time so our guests can enjoy their privacy through out their stay.

Other things to note

If you are planning to invite your own guests, please inform us and make a note the guests must leave the farm premises by 22:00. Should the guests stay later, we will charge the nightly fee. Please note your fee includes all listed here but you can not throw a private party on the premises but as stated above.

We have two very curious JackRussel Terriers which we try to keep out from the cottages but sometimes they just flee and come to greet our guests. They love people but are bit "ball crazy" and try to get the guests to throw anything they could fetch. Don't fall for it, it's an never ending game :). Occasionally we also train our horses (trotting carts or by riding) so be cautious when driving your car in the private road.
Our cat is a big personality and very friendly too.
Do not feed any of the animals, but naturally you can enjoy their company and give some rubs they love.

Kristiina and Timo are really great hosts! They met us and shown the farm, explained to us how to use grill and switch on the sauna, and other different important things. The place is fantastic it is located in the forest near the lake. We could pick up the mushrooms near the house). There are a lot of animals on the farm – horses, 2 cute and energies dogs and the red cat. So, if you love the nature and animals – it ideal place to stay here.

We had relaxing weekend at Kristiina's cottage. It was very clean and well-prepared for us. We loved the sauna and definitely recommend the rowing at the lake.

We only stayed a night, but would like to go back sometime in the future! The property is huge and absolutely stunning. Highly recommended for nature and animal loving people! Gorgeous horses (and adorable dog)! Kristiina was very welcoming and reacted immediately when I asked for help with the boat. Great host!
