We have a unique boathouse cottage with a cozy open-plan bedroom, living room and kitchen with all modern equipment; dishwasher, oven, induction cooker etc. Bathroom has a washing machine, shower and water toilet. Balcony is on the water so you can see the fish swimming by. On the ground level there is a big living area with a view to the lake. Outside terrace has sofa and chairs, dining table, gas barbeque and a wood burning fire place. Nearby is a traditional Finnish wood burning sauna.
“A MUST! We spent the most idyllic time here in Finland at Juna’s Boathouse. Words cannot describe how easy it is to switch off the minute you get to this Airbnb. They have thought of every little touch needed to make the stay complete. All amenities are available and the space offers more ways of relaxing than one can think of. From the living area offering an indoor and balcony space, to the downstairs boathouse’s doors creating a stunning area to relax being indoors and outdoors at the same time! Outside you have a lounging and barbecue area, as-well as seating on the decking and outside the smoke sauna! Do not leave without experiencing the sauna and a dip in the lake! We would love to come back if we can some day!”
The cottage has a well equipped kitchen (an owen, a dishwasher, a microwave owen, a fridge and refridgerator ), washing machine four beds (an extra bed is available when asked) a sauna both inside the cottage as well as on the beach.
“We loved our 3 days here and could easily have stayed longer. The cabin is in a gorgeous location right on the lake. It is blissfully quiet and peaceful with only the sounds of water lapping and birch leaves tinkling in the breeze. The sauna and rowing on the lake were both wonderful experiences. The nearest town Kerimaki is a 20 minute drive and Savolinna is about 30 minutes. We found Savolinna rather disappointing (the castle is the only real attraction). It's better to spend your time at the cabin enjoying the serenity of the lake! It is very comfortably furnished as a family holiday home. There is nothing fancy but has everything you need for a relaxing stay. Thanks Severi!”
A cozy cottage between pines and the lake just in 2 steps from Saimaa. It is quite small inside (30 square meters) with a big open terrace and a green lawn in front of it. There are a Loft bed for 2 people with a view, a small kitchen, fireplace, sauna on woods inside the cabin. It is great to start your day from early swimming and yoga/breakfast at the terrace listening to birds songs and finish your day with a glass of wine taking pictures of a stunning sunset.
“Very, very pleasant experience. Who is too scrupulous about comfortable sleep, I will report the following. In the house there is a sofa on the first floor and on the second 2 mattresses. Sofa one and a half Ikea. For two, there is not enough space for a comfortable sleep. Ideal for gatherings by the fireplace and watching movies on the tablet. The second floor is very cozy. There is only a place to sleep. Nothing more. But sleeping there is very difficult if you heat the bath. I have to open the windows to ventilate. In winter, there was a feeling that you could catch a cold. Perhaps you need to find the correct position of the vents to be comfortable, but the fact remains. Otherwise it was very cool. Nature in the first place. Absolute idyll. Nobody looked at us nirazu or bothered. Wood-fired bathhouse !!!! This is a huge plus. The hosts are very attentive, polite and punctual. The discomfort during sleep is more than compensated by other positive aspects.”
