The cabin in forests of Helsinki

Cabin - Entire home/apt · Uotilantie, Nurmijärvi, 01860, Finland

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.

The Space

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 studie there is a sofa which can be turned as double bed and there is also a simple little citchen-angle with fridge. You can cook there. 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!

Guest Access

Sääksjärvi has a great beach (7 km), beautiful horses you can find at Solsikke in the end of the road (4 km), another horse stall 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!

The Neighborhood

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!

  • Very nice host, drove us around, offered us cake and even gave us a lift to Helsinki with a sightseeing tour.
    We would definitely recommend her and her cabin. We felt a little bit like home :)

  • Elina's place is perfect! We had a great time at her cabin and the nature is beautiful! If you want go to to a really cozy cabin with great nature and sauna - this is where you should go!

  • Nice and modest cosy little cabin, clean, really quiet (good night sleep!) and relaxing. A small sauna and basic cooking facilities, no TV and wifi works in the entrance/terrace. Easy access to the highway to Helsinki or Hyvinkää, but you´ll need a car!

  • Nice lady. Nice cabin. The grey cat is a bit mean though...watch out for him.

  • Our 2week rest in Elina's cabin were really great! The cabin and surroundings are pretty and peaceful. It seems that you are alone and silence is everywhere - great rest from the city mess. Elina is a good host who makes you feel at home with her fantastic pies and cakes, and tells you about great places you may visit around (like beautiful river or local flee market). You defiantly need a car there. The cabin has everything you need for living and cooking. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you very much, Elina!

  • Excellent place with a fantastic host! Elina is a very friendly woman who will show you around and make sure you have a pleasant stay. The nature is quiet and beautiful, so, if you need to recharge your batteries before returning to urban life, this place will be ideal for you.

    P.S. Oh, and if she offers you her homemade cookies, be sure to accept them as they are delicious!

  • It's peaceful quiet place. Not far from Helsinki. We want just get out from routine and relaxing and we got it fully. Cabin have a best sauna in Finland. Also there all you need to for comfort staying. Elina is good host, we glad to stay at her cabin. Thank's.

  • A charming artsy cabin with comfortable beds and basic but adequate cooking facilities in a beautiful area not so very far (at least by car...) from Helsinki. We enjoyed a really quiet, sunny relaxing week, and it was lovely to learn about Elina's weaving and meet her new arrivals (kittens!).
    Our children loved the freedom to roam around the large garden, play on the swing and the trampoline and cook on an open fire.
    If you have transport and want to see something more than the city - but don't really have time to go deeper into the countryside - then we recommend Elina's cabin as the perfect place.

  • Erika is a very nice and friendly host. The cottage is also cozy and sweet. If you like to stay not in Helsinki downtown, this cabin must be the best. You wake up to the sound of birds singing and go sleeping in absolute silence.

  • Very good experience. Elina is a charming host. The cabin has the advantage of having total privacy as it is separate from the main house. You do need wheels here, otherwise exploring the area is difficult. Very good value.
