The space
(Please, in English below)

Once upon a time there was an elf. An old man, a long beard, all-hearted pointy ears, and a beautiful personality. That's where Mountain Pocket lived in peace. He took good care of the atmosphere in the cabin and its inhabitants. I couldn't live in such a hurry. In the morning it was supposed to be a long night's sleep, cooking lingonberry sauce took its time. In the hope of a great prey, it was worth wandering from one girl to another and herding the moose children to their mothers. The bird choir hobby and the bear wrestling kept the mind proud and the body brave. That's what bliss does to you when you're in the middle of the evening and you're having coffee on fire. They dreamed of a race with an age-old. From the night sauna, the elf flashes to cool down in the heather on the beak of the stump, because at midnight the blueberry is sweetest. Happy is sitting in a nightless tennis court and breathing life.

Elf Forest cottage Mountain pocket is located on the hill of Taskunpohja farm, under the armpit of pine cones of couple of hundred years. Be one with nature in a place where the sunsets will mute.

- The interior is about 20 m² + a cozy sleeping loft: An open room with loose sofas, sleeping loft, kitchen corner (personal needs and cooking options: gas cooking plate and small refrigerator), a refrigerated cabin library with reading corners and a fireplace
- Furnished viewing terrace, where you are at the height of the treetops
- Old age sauna, water pot and cool saunas (washing facilities)
- Fireplace, where the framework for open fire cooking
- Outdoor toilet (free of charge:)).
- Bath barrel (order at the time of booking, please, 150 euros, available to you throughout the visit)

Drinking water comes from a natural source and is picked up for guests. Washing water as carrier water.

Note! Mountain pocket electricity is solar electricity and is sufficient for lighting, small refrigerator and cell phone charging.


In addition to cottage planning, there is plenty to see and do around Vuoritataski, offered by nature exercise, wildlife hunting, fishing and the active village Vuolenkoski. Mountain pocket is located 15 minutes' walk from the beach of the Kimola Canal, which opens up big waters to Konniselä and further to Päijänne. Berries and mushroom forests start at the very corner of the cottage and far-sighted sunsets open from our high rocky lands.

Repovesi National Park has been ranked in the media for Top 5 "Must-See Nature Destinations in Finland" and is driven there from Vuoritataskä in less than an hour and a half. We recommend with warmth!

The versatile offer of the Finnish Sports University can be reached from us in 15 minutes. You should check: www. vierumaki. f i. Tip and trick: swimming pool, nature trails, ski trails, adventure park Flowpark, several restaurants, sports bar, nightclub with live bands, glamour bowling, etc.

Soldered with warm cow's milk, our authentic country village is a place of good mood! Vuolenkoski village has been selected as the village of the year in 2014, and there is no reason to, because one village that is active all year round can be applied for in Finland. Examples include every summer Saturday country markets, the eventful Living Christmas Calendar and major public events Veteran Tractor Drag Races and Tuu Tupahan Housing Fair. The village also has a nice family destination in the summertime, Kilkkilä Farm with versatile plastering. The village's great website: vuolenkoski. f i.

You can give me a big tip if you want someone to talk to on the fire or if you want someone to talk to on the water. Housewives include a stubborn host, a dainty mistress, a quick little girl, two cats and summer sheep and chickens. Mukavia tyyppejä kaikki.


Once upon a time there was an elf. An old man with a long beard, all-hearing pointy ears and a charming nature. In the peace of Hill Pocket he lived, caring for the atmosphere of the cottage and its guests.

There was no room for hurry; mornings were for sleeping late, preparing lingonberry porridge took its time. For a good raspberry harvest, it was worth rambling from a hillock to a hummock and shepherd moose youngsters back in the care of their mother. Joining in with a bird choir and bear wrestling kept the mind majestic and body brave.
Blissfulness would boil over along with the coffee pot on the camp fire. The age-old trees and the elf dreamt. After nighttime sauna was the time to unwind in the heathland. Blueberries taste sweetest in the midnight. Happiness is to settle down in the glow of the midnight sun and breathe in life.

This elf´s forest cottage is including to the farm called Bottom of the Pocket. Hill Pocket is a unique place for a nature lovers. Welcome to take it easy, sleep tight and enjoy the pure nature of Finland with an amazing scenery.

Terve! Olen Petteri Suomen Iitistä ja asun perheeni kanssa maailman parhaassa paikassa, Taskunpohjan tilalla, keskellä kaunista maaseutua. Sieltä löydät myös meidän rustiikkisen majatalomme Povitaskun, huippua hipovan Vuoritaskun ja söötin Hippitaskun.

Taskunpohjalla voin toteuttaa itseäni perinnerakentamisen, metsätöiden, kalastuksen ja hyvien tyyppien parissa, fiilistelyä perheen kesken missään tapauksessa unohtamatta.

Hyväntuulisesti tapaamisiin meillä!
