About this listing
Here you can sleep well. The surrounding is completely silent. In the mornings you may woke up in birds singing. From the airport Helsinki-Vantaa it takes 30 min., to the center of Helsinki you need 45 min.
In the bedroom you can find a good 140 cm large bed. You have your own bathroom with the shower and a tiny sauna, there is also a wasching maschine. The first where you enter is a terracce wiht several windows: there you can find a two separate beds (80 cm and 110 cm Hästens-bed). The third room is my studio with my yarns. In the studio you find a simple little citchen-angle with fridge. The cabin is rather small, for 2-4 persons still it fits well. You can cook there simply things. If you don´t want to cook you have always the possibility to order pizza-taxi, which brings you directly to home pizza or kebab or steak!
Sääksjärvi has a great beach (7 km), beautiful horses you can find at Solsikke in the end of the road (4 km), another horse stable Uotilan talli you can find in another direction (2,4 km). It is possible to ride in both of these places. If you want to swim in a huge center, Serena is for you (20 km), there you can also ski during the winter time. Another ski center is Sveitsin hiihtokeskus (34 km).
Interaction with Guests
The cabin offers you peace: here you can write, read, draw or think, walk in the forest. At the same time you can reach also Helsinki center with all different culture activities. But remember: you will be rather isolated! So think carefully!
If you love fishing, you can do it rather near (7 km). There is a nice rapid with very good paths and fireplaces with wood.
I speak well english and italiano and some german and swedish. Benvenuti - Welcome - Wällkommen - Villkommen!
Other Things to Note
The cabin is comfortable for four persons, but remeber: the main bedroom has the door to the wc-shower-sauna, other guests have to pass the main bedroom while needing the rest room!
Recycling: We like recycling and sustainable living so please recycle your (website hidden) waste, paper/carboard, bottles and cans can be left to kitchen and I will take care of those afterwards. In the case you don´t want to have your bio waste in the citchen for several days, you can empty it also yourself to the green container (near post box).
Nous avons passé un tres bon sejour d'une semaine chez Elina, que je remercie pour nous avoir indiqué le chemin et d'etre venue nous chercher au bus, de nous avoir fait visiter quelques endroits et nous donner des informations pour se balader!
Merci aussi pour le livre de la superbe bibliotheque et de nous avoir preté un velo!
On se sent comme a la maison dans cette jolie et particuliere cabane. Le jardin est agreable et l'endroit calme meme quand les enfants sont venus. Ils etaient tres mignon et respectueux. Nous avons ete tres tres bien accueillis!
je recomande chaudement Elina comme hôte et cela me ferait tres plaisir de revenir un jour.
we had a very good stay for a week at Elina cabin, thank you for coming to us up to the bus and for letting us visit some places and give us information for walking!
Thank you for the book of the great library and lend us a bike!
It feels like home in this beautiful and particular cabin. The garden is nice and the place quite, even when children was here :) .
We have been so very well welcoming!
I really recomand Elina our host and I would be very happy to come back one day.
thank you a lot!
Elina was quite welcoming! We brought our puppy and he had tons of room to run and play in the nearby pastures!
Нам очень понравилось в уютном домике на лесной опушке! Это самая настоящая финская деревня - кругом лес, поля, ровные асфальтированные дорожки и полная "тишина в эфире". Дом небольшой, но комфортабельный и со всеми удобствами - большой кухней, просторной душевой и сауной. Как хорошо после прогулки в лесу посидеть в сауне. Elina очень доброжелательна и приветлива - она нам помогала в некоторых бытовых вопросах и угостила вкусным супом - такой суп с белым бульоном варят по старинной рецептуре только в этой деревне. В общем, нам понравилось! Приедем еще! :-)))
We liked the Finnish countryside! A cozy house with all amenities, sauna, clean air, friendly hostess, and not a single person in sight! Recommend!
Had a lovely time during the midsummer with two adults and two kids. Great location with a beach by a beautiful lake in 10 minutes drive. Hämeenlinna and Helsinki within 1 hour drive. The cabin had lots of more room you would expect from the pictures, functional citchen with a large dining table. Great for a peaceful getaway in the Finnish countryside at it's best. Elina was lovely and helpful if in need of any kind of guidance. Highly recommended.
We have stayed in this cabin several times and our expectations have never been disappointed.
Elina is always welcoming and supporting us. The cabin keeps clean and comfortable. The equipment has been improving.
I recommend this cabin to all of you.
We stayed at Elina's cabin for a couple of nights. It is a very quiet and cozy place, and still relatively close to Helsinki. Elina had arranged everything for our late arrival and everything was easy and smooth. I would definitively stay at Elina's cabin again!
